any other details you remember? im sure i would know ittttt
Those kids dressed with black and red striped shirts (I think), they all look alike but yet they’re complaining how everyone looks and wears the same (therefore I called them hipsters). They are all siting in a sofa selling drugs to Tony…
Is there actually coming an Naomily book? And will there be more stories in it of them? or?
Yes there is..it’s called the “Naomily Phenomenon” and it’s written by Dr. Ann-Marie Cook and there’s no release date yet (info taken from LOLNaomily). She actually interviewed Kat and Lily and that part doesn’t appear in that excerpt..so yeah, there’ll be more cool stuff in the whole book I guess :)
Omg, if James is in one of the next Gens, I SWEAR that will be my second favourite Gen ever.
I fucking love James bloody dicks.
I’d fucking die from excitement if that happened! James is my favourite minor character ever! And there are so many character traits left to explore..like his fascination with women and the friendship with Gordon McPherson..it’d be AWESOME!
Is it weird that I can relate so much to these characters even though my life is nothing like theirs? also have you read the first book? It's fantastic :)
It is not weird at all. I relate a LOT to them though I don’t have Cook’s hard life or Effy’s madness, or anything. It’s normal to feel that way because it makes us feel something, each and everyone of us, to see real teenage feelings on screen :)
The first Skins : The Novel ? I read it , personally I thought it wasn’t great. We didn’t learn anything about the character, it was all about SEXSEXSEX..and in an awkward way..but each has got their opinion :)
I saw your thing about Harvard not giving sports scholarships and though I think it was really ridiculous to have Thomas and Pandora get into an Ivy League school, I figured I'd tell you that though Ivy League's can't officially give out sports scholarships, they'll give a different type of scholarship to a student if they want them for their athletic ability. It's a pretty good loophole, and I thought I'd tell you since you're not from the US.
Yes, well I had figured it out, (and read it somewhere I think) that this ending for Thomas & Pandora is only a plothole, and I think it’s really bad that they screwed nice characters such as Pandora with that kind of unbelievable stuff..
In season three, James was almost 13 [he mentioned nearly being a teenager in one of the online videos] so he would've been 14 in season 4, 15 in season 5 etc. So he might be old enough to be in either Gen4 or Gen5 if it goes on that long.
I think that Skins doesn't glamorize sex and drugs and alcohol. Sure, some teens don't do those things. I don't, for one. But some teens do. Watching Skins isn't going to just suddenly make you decide that you should go out and get drunk. It might make you curious, but if you go out and do those things, it's not Skins. It's your decision, it's how you want to live your life.
Personally, I think Skins is about life, and living every day, and I love that they manage to take on some really hard topics (sexuality, teen pregnancy, getting kicked out, depression, eating disorders) without making it what the show is about. Sure, Cassie has an eating disorder. But she's also a funny girl who says strange things and likes to wear funny clothes and says Wow! a lot. Sure, Jal is a teen who got pregnant, but she's also smart and plays the clarinet and is a lot of people's rocks and has problems saying yes to things. And Naomi is a lesbian, but she's also politically active and has a sharp tongue and is very smart and a very scared.
That's why I love Skins. It might be about sex and drugs, and they might be about serious issues, but in the end, Skins is about friendship and acceptance and living every day to the fullest.
How old is the actor who plays James Fitch and do you think James Fitch will come back in later generations?
I don’t know how old is the lovely Redd Smith, and neither if he could come back in later gen. I do hope so (and Jamie Brittain had said something about it too, but as he left the Skins boat we don’t know..)
