Monday, January 17 - 'Skins' debuts
"Skins" (MTV) Monday, January 17
In the UK, the teen drama "Skins" was famous for three things: 1)Dealing with teen sex and drug use in a shockingly casual, frank manner; 2)Having a writing staff largely composed of actual teens or people not far out of their teens; and 3)Completely turning over the cast every 2 years so that the focus stayed on adolescent life, rather than trying to send all the kids off to the same university. Will the American version - which, at least at the start, is leaning heavily on the British scripts - feel as vital and/or shocking?
