  1. 1

    how does life on the bandwagon feel, perez?



  2. 2

    watched the US version. do not want. period.
    just watch the british version, it's much much better and makes a whole lot more sense overall.



  3. 3

    I liked the US version! I'm a fan of the UK original as well, and it's been one damn episode, give it some time.



  4. 4

    it was so bad words cant describe. we knew it would be but seeing it was way worse than i imaged. i actually felt embarrassed for us that we fucked up such a beautiful thing from across the pond.

    Well yeah US skins sucks. Who didn't see that coming? Tried giving it a chance but it's just a joke. Give me a crappy camera, a cast, and I could do better.

    P.S.
    Mario learn how to read. She's not slamming it.

    I saw the previews of the show. From what I gather, it is about a bunch of degenerate guys and sluts roaming around doing nothing good for society. Don't we have enough of those shows already? - oh wait, this one seems to be about teenagers…yeah, that makes it original…

    I painfully clicked to the US version just to make sure it sucked like I thought it would and surprise, IT DID!! It is a poor man's Skins. A cheap and not so good word for word remake. The British actors should know they were not bad at all in fact they were so natural and wonderful and do not think they were bad actors just because the American actors suck. Only young teenage girls who never saw the brilliance of the original will like it and think it is amazing and groundbreaking! Très pathetic and disappointing.

    THIS SHOW NEEDS TO GET SHIT CANNED ASAP. PROMOTING SERIOUS DRUG USE, SEX, DRINKING AND FAILING SCHOOL IS NOT A GOOD LOOK FOR MTV. PARENTS HAVE A HARD ENOUGH TIME KEEPING KIDS OUT OF TROUBLE AND OFF DRUGS…MTV IS GLORIFYING IT.



  10. 10

    and i agree



  11. 11

    The US version was weird and I haven't seen the UK version. The US version was trying to hard to be scandalous.



  12. 12

    STOP COPYING OUR SHOWS.



  13. 13

    - Sid is a guy who doenst get laid so they put a blonde emo for the role
    - turned Max to a lesbian cheerleader cuz its "omg so much more hot"
    - Cassie is now black to avoid racism comments
    - oh and ofc they changed Tony's sheets, spiders are better looking and dramatic then a picture of a naked girl anyways .
    -effy ..just no comments ..terrible acting
    sorry guys but the show will continue to suck , besides the bad acting i seriously doubt they will put half the stuff that appeared on uk version, you will get some sex scenes with clothes on lasting 0:02 and people consuming drugs only on 1/2 episode really quick and that will already be a total scandalous for america. hello gossip girl and 90210.



  14. 14

    I didn't even bother watching the US version, why did we have to remake a show that was already perfect as is? MTV should have just aired the original version, that way MTV would finally have something worth watching.



  15. 15

    Amen! I'm an American and I love love love the ORIGINAL Skins much better. US Shameless has too many similarities from the original Shameless, but at least it's more tasteful than US Skins and I can actually watch it. But because I've seen every UK Shameless episode, I've been able to predict everything in the past US episodes they've shown. I hope they veer away from the original one soon to make it more fun. =)

    Re: bring it

    Oh shut the fuck up!

    She is right. I liked British skins but US is like a wannabe hardcore degrassi {which stinks also}. Plus they cant show any nudity or too many sex scenes or cursing or drug use. Plus the British skins pretty much everyone was hot. In this one they are all hideous.



  19. 19

    i completely agree. i LOVED the british version and i tried to give the american one a chance and i turned it off after 15 minutes. the british one is on netflix instant streaming so i def suggest everyone check it out



  20. 20

    I admire Kaya's restraint, given how lousy the American version is. Its not just the bad acting, poor casting, and giving Tony a reinterpretation that undermines where the storyline goes - its reusing the original scripts, making the failures all the more apparent. And changing Maxxie into a lesbian undermines one of the more interesting twist in the show. As for Shameless, shes right.



  21. 21

    I haven't seen the us version, but what in the fuck does changing effys hair to blonde have to do with the character? If thats the biggest criticism she can come up with then maybe its not as bad as people say (though it does look dismal). If she's complaining about something that shallow then isnt she basically saying that her character was defined by her physical appearance on skins?



  22. 22

    They both look blond to me, in those pics at least! Ive never seen the British or US version, not interested.



  23. 23

    I hate the new skins.. the original is so much better! Everyone whom hasn't seen the original thinks this copyrighted shit is actually good t.v. I call bullshit! And the us version cast isn't as sexy as the original .. just look at tony and effy.. Effy mystery and overall allure was depleted with her new american counterpart.. I cant see how this show will survive without all the x rated memorable moments and witty language. And the bleeps were outrageous. Skins is all about foul language it what the show is founded upon!



  24. 24

    The US version sucks balls. That is all.



  25. 25

    US SUCKS FOR FUCKING REAL!!! I mean effy is so hot in the uk, and in the us looks so bad ugly …really …and to complete all the catastrophe they make Sid an emo….way to go assholes!!!



  26. 26

    I wanted to cry when it was bleeped, how can you censor Skins, that's the whole point!



  27. 27

    I'd rather be watching the 5th season of the original series. The only good thing about the MTV remake is that it's leading people to the original.
    And I think part of the reason why Shameless is doing so well is because Emmy Rossum is so magnetic.
    Just please US, don't remake Misfits!



  28. 28

    Who cares what Kaya says. She can't even act. The US version was good. Not as good as the first ep of the UK Version even with almost the same script, but it was still good. Get over which is better and enjoy the show.



  29. 29

    I'm obssssessed with Effy.



  30. 30

    hmm… what the fuck is skins? and who the hell is this chick? never heard of either one. and for the love of god I pray we never see who ever this bitch is over here in the States. stay in the uk, canada or where ever your from. we've got way too many horrible shitty actors from those two countries already.



  31. 31

    Re: Fat_Bob – What do you have against teenagers. We're not all sluts, you know? We don't all just care about drugs and making out. And I thought the US version was okay. But I bet if I saw the UK version I'd like it better.



  32. 32

    There are some serious issues that need to be addressed in the US version.

    1. Tony is supposed to be the absolute bad ass sex bomb. From the opening shot we know Tony is God in the UK version. This Tony didn't seem right from the start, and continued to not be anything but lame for the rest of the episode. I never once looked at him and thought "OMG that is one insane bamf that I must have now!"

    2. Tea- wutever so you wanted to have a change, but seriously where is the amazing performer that maxxie was? They cheapened the role by making her a les cheerleader who is held up by her breasts in our first meeting of her.



  33. 33

    3. And possibly the most damning is Cadie…. words will never be able to express the intensity of my disappointment with the remake of Cassie's role. I don't mind that she is black. I think it is necessary to have a very diverse cast for the US version, we are an incredibly diverse nation. But OMG I don't think they could have chosen a poorer actress. I in no way believe anything this actress does. I'm sure she is a great person and maybe in other roles she would be good. But she is butchering this role. Instead of spacy and neurotic and obsessive YET CLEVER, britne seems like she is playing the silly person in a children's morning program on nick jr. or disney. Basically incredibly overacted and plain embarrasing.

    The last criticism is the way Eura enters the show… I honestly forgot for a moment who she was supposed to be and tried to remember a scene with a beggar. Instead of looking like a cleverer than hell party girl sneaking in from a crazy night, I thought voodoo beggar girl… not how you want to introduce a vital character that may very well be sticking around for 4 years!



  34. 34

    These aren't all my problems with the show, but I'm too tired to write them all out. In general I think the show was kind of tame and didn't have the great feel of something special that the original had.

    I would like to say that I did like Stanley (although sid will always hold a special place in my heart) and I think Tea is well played by the actress even if the writing sucked a bit. Michelle was decent nothing that took my breath away, but I think there is potential.



  35. 35

    Why is she using Americanisms like "hater" if she hates American stuff so much? Oh yeah Perez, why do you hate on American stuff so much.



  36. 36

    UK Skins is epic.



  37. 37

    i actually think its kinda poor of kaya to slam the US version, the US cast are nothing but complimentry of UK skins, if she has that opinion i think she should keep it to herself.



  38. 38

    I love her for saying that. Effy was a great character even if she did go a abit crazy in the last series… But Kaya was right on the button… Brits do it better!



  39. 39

    fuck skins, and everyone involved in they're collective asses



  40. 40

    haha well said



  41. 41

    love kaya



  42. 42

    Re: jlenoconel – yes because of course disliking a shit remake equates to hatred of all things remotely american



  43. 43

    I watched half of it and had to just stop it.
    I just marathon watched the first 2 seasons of the UK version and the US version is AWFUL!!!!!



  44. 44

    Agree with Kaya! Love her as Effy!!
