Skins Season 5

Starts on Thursday...

Another new cast. I guess we expect a dodgy first episode?

I know we covered this in the other thread.

For a first episode it was OK- far better than the first of season 3.

It was helped by the focus on Dakota Blue Richards, who is a far more experienced actress than the average Skins star. The metaller kid looks promising too.

Yeah, I just caught up with it last night. It was a promising start.

I like the idea of the two groups dynamic, although it did edge towards American Teen Movie at points.

Not sure we really go for the same things. Anyway, they're all too young for me.

The cast seems to get younger every year.

I just realized after using IMDB, Franky is from Golden Compass. Thought I recognized her.

No weak episodes so far. Even the character that looked one-dimensional in early shows have risen to the challenge in their focal episodes. Plus it's nice to see the weird/experimental stuff creeping in again.

It's quite soft-centred, but not in bad ways.

Caught up with the last episode.

Not the best season, not the worst, but still good. If they keep the trend that the second season with each cast is darker than the first it'll be interesting to see where this goes.
