We have a pattern established. Even-numbered series of "Skins" are both very good and very bleak.

Very strong episode last night, with excellent guest slots from Will Young and Charlie Drake.

And Bez!

Yes, this series is very bleak, and yes, last night's episode was great, but overall I don't this series has been a classic. Not enough overall story arc, too much parents/not enough kids etc. Still head and shoulders above 99% of British telly mind.

We've only watched the first couple so far.

I think the creators said this was going to be the pattern, series 1 with a new cast is the introduce the characters fun season. Series 2 is the more meaty one.

Starting with a suicide was a pretty good indicator of the bleakness though...

It's a great show even though everyone talks with funny accents.

Yeah, was a big ending. Seemed pretty tied up in some respects and pretty ambiguous in others. 2 more series have been commissioned, are we going to see a whole new set of characters again next year?

Yes... I guess the events at the end will have some resonance onto the next year but not sure how much we'll get to find out about them.
