Ugh! Why do they have to mess with things that were fine as they were?

MTV has picked up two new scripted TV series, which one would think was a nice departure from their god awful reality crap (that was not directed at you, Snooki) - if they weren't shiteous revamps!

The network will grant a series order to Teen Wolf, a reimagining of the 1985 Michael J. Fox film, and to a US version of the UK teen drama Skins!

Bleck! We can only imagine the werewolf costume! It's going to be absolutely HOrrific!

And we don't even want to comment on what they're going to do to Skins. The UK version is absolutely brilliant, why on Earth does it need to be re-done?!

You are on thin ice, MTV! Tread very lightly!

    I thought that WAS Snooki on the top left!

    Nooooo don't fuck with skins :(



  3. 3

    eeeeurghhh!
    skins is OUR thing!

    The reason skins is so good is because it's so british. It's actually so realistic and it plays on british humour and british teen culture.
    MTV are going to glam it up and make it another gossip girl.
    KILL ME NOW.

    MTV needs to just stop and realize the name of their channel and what it means MUSIC TELEVISION!!! I've lost all respect for this channel… to many shows and no music!



  5. 5

    No please no more stupid shows. MTV needs to start playing more music.



  6. 6

    Great maybe they can get the guy who directed the Karate Kid remake and Will Smith's son can be Teen Wolf. This way they can F up another classic. Or maybe Adam Sandler, he likes to destroy great movies with terrible remakes too!



  7. 7

    I love skins i don't mean to be rude but i don't think an American version would really work :(



  8. 8

    Noo they shouldnt remake Skins! Im pretty sure the UK version is shown on BBC America though or i think it was anyway..mtv should buy it from them if its not on that anymore a remake would be crap



  9. 9

    Also skins is good because it's purely about british teens and their lives - no unnecessary twists like them being 'warewolfs' i mean what a way to kill it.



  10. 10

    And why on earth they had to change some character names in Skins! If they wanna do it "new", then PLEASE COMPLETELY NEW!

    Love skins… Will most likely HATE mtv's attempt



  13. 13

    why do americans insist on fucking up great shows? skins was one of the things that defined a generation of british kids, they arent gonna recapture that!



  14. 14

    Skins seriously?? I watched that recently on Netflix and was hooked. Fantastic show that does NOT need to be remade for the US.
    Just show the original!



  15. 15

    Seriously, a US version of Skins? Come on, the US cannot pull that off. Particularly MTV, their shows always have such shit actors who are not believable as characters. Its just going to ruin it. Skins is THE show if this UK generation, it can't be recaptured, why does America always do this? That kind of show is just not going to be done well if the US tries to do it, I know this for a fact. They should keep to what they know how to do, and that is make shitty fake ”reality” shows like The Hills, and not try to fuck with Skins.



  16. 16

    NOOOOO STAY OFF SKINS
    PLEASE
    PLEASE
    I BEG YOU
    DONT RAPE THIS!!!!

    Re: CatRAT09 – umm there is NOT a twist about one being a warewolfe…these are TWO SEPERATE SHOWS "Skins US" show 1….TEEN WOLFE…show 2



  18. 18

    Teen Wolf=the original is a great, and I love it
    As for SKINS, I can only imagine Americans will de-claw all the sex scenes and make the characters alot more annoying and stupid



  19. 19

    i kind of want to see an american version of skins, itd be interesting to see how american teens live their life, and if its that different



  20. 20

    american people arent really quite as in to alcohol or drugs though are they, so im not sure if it would work.

    OMG! skinssssss



  22. 22

    NO! That was such a good show… American remakes ruin everything; I can't imagine how horrible MTV will make it.



  23. 23

    I agree don't fuck with skins.
    It's such a great show, and there is no way the states can duplicate it.
    For one the show is all sex and swearing which obviously isn't allowed on tv here, and is in the UK.



  24. 24

    Fuckkk

    I absolutely love Skins, but I can't see an American version working out, especially one made by MTV.

    Let's just ignore it and eagerly await series 5 of the UK show and the movie.



  25. 25

    perez, i have known they were making a US version of skins for almost a year now. way to be on top of the times.



  26. 26

    they should leave skins alone!!



  27. 27

    Re: booboobooboo – I think it really will be interesting to see how the U.S. does Skins. I will be taking into consideration that this will be a "revamp or remake" so it should be interesting to see how they approach sex, drugs, teen angst, racial conflict, class issues, and overall how they will approach showing a hopefully "raw" portrayal of American teens growing up. Apparently the show is going to be set in Baltimore, Maryland and we all know how F'ed up Baltimore is so it should be enjoyable…not as enjoyable as the UK version…but pretty chill.



  28. 28

    I'm sick and tired of MTV taking great ideas or shows and turning them into shit. Making an American version of Skins is a waste of time, and is really upsetting. The great thing about Skins is that it displays british culture and humor in an honest way. MTV would just make it into another "my life as liz" show. Fuck MTV.



  29. 29

    US version of Skins will be absolutely horrific!! no doubt.



  30. 30

    Oh no not Skins!!! That's such a great show! At least the first 2 seasons anyway. MTV is just going to screw it up.



  31. 31

    MTV lost it's swagger years ago. The last decent and original show to be aired on the station was Jackass,
