Why do I do this to myself? I'm the first person to say to everyone else: "If you don't like it, stop fuckin watching then! Whatever you do, just stop fucking whining about it." See, my issue is more... like... I have done that multiple times. Just given up on shows I've had it with (Without A Trace, Grey's, The OC, House, Shameless, pretty much everything on American TV except American Dad lol, to name a few.) It's not like I can't. But for some reason, I won't when it comes to Skins. I think partly cos I've invested so much energy into it already. It seems silly not to persevere just a bit longer.
Even when I don't think I've thoroughly enjoyed a series since S3. (I did quite like S5; in fact, I thought it was brilliant -- just not quite as emotionally captivating for whatever reason. I didn't go rabid over the characters like I had done for the first 2 gens. Which is odd considering that I believe it may be the most cohesive, real and well-written series Skins has ever done. Aside from S2, obvs.)
I think partly it's due to the fact I keep hoping beyond sense that Skins will bounce back to its former glory. But now, Skins should be known as "Skins". Like, and everyone needs to do those air quotes when talking about it. Cos it's just absolute parp. (S Club 7 shout out, huzzah!!) So, thus, all you lucky folk, get to hear my bitter ranting about the whole thing cos I still am refusing to accept this pile of shit is Skins proper, and that "Skins" is the way of the future.
