Okay, that was my immediate reaction, and I’m not, really, because this means I don’t have to get to force myself to like a new cast or anything. But Skins had somehow come to feel like an institution and now it’s just going to be one show that was sort of important for a blip in the 2000’s. I’m a little disappointed, I guess. Not devastated.
But I kind of am devastated. Because the hope of loving the new Skins cast is fun! It’s a whole waiting and and speculating. But I see how they could think, how can we create characters that are both NEW and “SKINS,” and perhaps the ideas are exhausted? Maybe we can even say that the best ideas were exhausted with seasons 1&2..
I think there are a lot of ideas they never explored… but they explored all of their ideas. This season has repeated so many past storylines that I can see how it’s run it’s course as a series… and yet… and yet the premise of new characters every two years is actually the only kind of series that should run for like 12 seasons. C’mon Brits!
