Re: Skins Season 5!
I watched it with reasonably high expectations, that were inevitable shattered. The premise was actually quite promising, but the characters were so one-dimensional, despite the attempts to try and present Frankie as some kind of complex psychological study. I just found her character utterly unbelievable, as i did with all of them to be honest.
I thought the acting was extremely below-par too. The bully girl (Mia?), sounded like she was in autocue mode for the first half, and then nigh on losing the plot in the second half. The storyline seems contrived too, and the characters too detached from one another. In the first 4 seasons of skins, there was a clear link that linked the characters. As a result, it kind of conflicts with the Skins format as a whole.
Nice ideas, but shitty acting and uneven formula ruined it for me.
