it premiered monday on MTV and i haven't heard anything about it. i'm a fan of the original, but this seems like a bad idea. did anyone catch it?

remakes are usually bad, but with the american version of the office, i've changed my views on them. i think america needs a show like Skins. i mean, the only teen dramas we have anymore are shows like The OC, which i obviously can't relate to, whereas Skins is practically the way my life was in high school (except maybe a little less extreme). hopefully MTV will stop copy/pasting the original scripts, and do something great with it, but somehow i feel that won't happen.

They basically copied the UK version word for word.

what does the title of the show mean in reference to the show's content?

its slang for rolling papers. plus there's plenty of skin shown in the original.

I watched the first 3 episodes of the original and dug um so i checked out the remake. fuck it was the same, and yet lacked all the energy and charm. it felt like kids had remade their favorite show. terrible

I watched a couple of episodes of the UK version, it was okay. I don't think a tv show like this should even exist though really

Ever see those kids in the grocery store who throw mega-tantrums and scream bloody murder on the cereal aisle? Well, those kids end up growing up to make societal megafarts like MTV and piss on all things sacred.

Either that or they run for office.

This, fucking retarded. I've never really watched the UK version of The Office because I thought it was horrible but at least that show format was somewhat adapted for the american market whereas it seems with Skins they just straight up re-shot the whole thing with american actors. Fucking horrible.
