A few weeks ago I went to my fifth college reunion. I know what you’re thinking: Karishma, that’s not that far removed from college, it won’t be weird. You probably saw half of those people last week. That’s where you’d be wrong.
Skins Recap: “Cadie”
Cadie gets her turn this week and I honestly can’t tell you whether I really liked this episode or thought it pandered too much. Maybe I’ll decide by the end of this recap.
Skins Recap: “Chris”
This is the infamous “kiddie porn” episode. It’s also another episode that is a veritable carbon copy of its UK counterpart, complete with opening sight gags related to pissing on Viagra and everything. Once you get past that baggage, though, it becomes a pretty well done episode about a kid who only knows how to be a kid living with a mother who is suffering with a mental illness.
After watching the first five minutes of “Tony” the first episode of the UK version of Skins, I thought it was horribly miscast. After watching the whole episode, I thought that it was also horribly written. I’m glad I stuck with it, though, because the second episode, “Tea,” while not stellar, had some glimpses of promise.
