While it may be controversial, we can't deny SKINS was something unique among teen television, and it breaks our heart to say goodbye to the WHOLE SKINS family…even those we've been missing for years.
Why are we so enamored by this series?
Was it the Britishness? Perhaps, as the US version didn't even get past season 1 (well…it was just…AWFUL).
Was it the intricate, relatable, interesting characters?
Was it the edgy, creative music choices?
Was it the thrilling plot lines and boundary-pushing situations we were riveted by each season?
Or was it all the (above) combined - the whole SKINS entity in itself, that we love so much??

Remember Madonna's stalker? Robert Dewey Hoskins?
The one that served a 10-year sentence for doing it?
Yeah, well, he had this storage locker and stopped paying for it. So the owner of the lockers had the right to sell it off. So they opened it.
Know what they found?
Lots and lots Madonna memorabilia. CDs and photos. Oh, and condoms, women's jewelry, box cutters, scissors, a bible and probably the creepiest mask ever!
The LAPD is going to investigate the contents, because when it was sold they didn't know who the owner was until they found paperwork and prescription bottles inside.
Wonder what drives someone do things like this??

Josh Schwartz is one busy man! While the upper east siders are busy bashing Lonely Boy, their creator has been working on a new series to storm the states.
Born in the UK, Misfits is about of group of kids doing community service in London when all of a sudden an electrical storm hits them. They survive, but with….dum dum dummmm….super powers! KA-PLOW!
And even though the US remake of Skins didn't do so well, tv minds are thinking Misfits has a way better chance.
Yeah, we'll give it a shot. We love science fiction!

The first of MTV's original, scripted series - The Hard Times of RJ Berger - has been canceled after two seasons!
Although debuting in seasons one and two to high numbers, the series, which focused on a well-endowed high school student, lost a huge amount of viewership steadily until dropping below one million by its season finale in May.
But hey! At least you got the network to stop airing so much crap reality!
And you also lasted longer than the abysmal Skins!
That's something! Ha!

Can't say we didn't see this coming, but we know there are more than a few of you out there who will be somewhat disappointed.
MTV just announced that they are canceling their adaptation of the British show Skins after only one season. The show had a rocky start, plagued by low ratings, bashings from parental groups and advertisers quickly pulling their ads because of its racy content. Still, MTV stands by their decision to air the show and released this statement on its cancellation:
"Skins is a global television phenomenon that, unfortunately, didn’t connect with a US audience as much as we had hoped. We admire the work that the series’ creator Bryan Elsley did in adapting the show for MTV, and appreciate the core audience that embraced it."
If you are one of those kids in the show's "core audience" and you haven't already, fill the void by watching the U.K. series. It is masterfully written and we think by watching it you'll have a better appreciation for what the U.S. show had to live up to!
