Seems, for what has been seen so far, that the greatest way to describe this new british TV-program is as a plus of High School Musical and Fame, as usual: corny stories, teenage love, fashionable people everywhere…
But the truth it’s that the new single Start of something it’s a hit, that kind of that makes you happiest and optimistic, something necessary nowadays… Furthermore, add four things: (one) the incredible change of Mitch Hewer, that appears on Skins as Maxxie; (two) I read that was one of the most successfull programs in the last Canne’s Festival; (three) as I read, Take That is part of the project, a fact that explains the great single, I’m not saying that Take That was great (how little I heard, I was indifferent of it) but the success they had, for something would be, and finally (four) I’ve to say that not everything shines, the second single Watch this space it’s not good at all.
To end, thank and recommend you the greatest blog ok Skins in spanish, the way I discover Britannia High, and the official web of Britannia High to look for photos, download the song, videos…

Skins is a comedic teen drama from Company Pictures. It’s located in the brithish town of Bristol, where the young characters living the last years of high school alternating with partys, drugs and sex. The characters are so stereotyped: a popular, but manipulative boy (Tony), a Muslim boy (Anwar), an openly gay boy (Maxxie), an overbearing and talented clarinet player (Jal), a party animal with family problems (Chris), a pushover who is in love with his best friend’s girlfriend (Sid), a girl who is worried her boyfriend is only using her (Michelle) and a mentally unstable girl with an eating disorder (Cassie).
The greates thing of the serie is the original way to explain the history, the dialogues and al the visual part. The worst thing, for me, is that maybe they abusing unnecessarily of topics as drugs or sex in my point of view, looking for the sensationalism more than to explain the real way of life of teens (may it be, but perhaps not so widespread).
The serie realese two seasons with the same cast. The last months, the production organize parties all arround England where they looking for the cast of the third season that now it’s on process. In this new season, the old cast will appear maybe in some episodes but Effy (Michelle’s sister) is the only character of the last seasons that will appear fixed int the new one.
You can watch skins in Buzz, Antena.Neox and ojo Videoclub, but I recommend you to take a look to the spanish blog of Skins, with a lot of information, photos and download links not only of the episodes, also of the soundtrack. Enjoy!
Finally, this is the official website where you can find a lot of information too!
