Trailer For MTV's Skins

First Look at MTV's Skins: Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n' Roll

When I first heard that MTV was adapting the British series Skins for the states, I was somewhat skeptical. How could the network possibly replicate it when nearly every UK scene involves some form of profanity or sex? But after watching the first footage, I'm pleasantly surprised to see that the US version is staying true to its predecessor without seeming too watered-down.

Set to fast-paced music, this trailer hints at several of the original's eyebrow-raising themes (think drugs, drinking, and neighbors in the buff). But if you need more proof of how similar the two versions are, then click here for another preview with dialogue and scenes that are almost identical to the British pilot. The only major difference from what I can tell: no English accents! It premieres in January, but take a peek when you

Anonymous, I am so glad that you had the courage to say what you said! We all keep buying into the lie that "what's put on TV and in movies is real" but people need to wake up and realize that what we watch influences what we do, not the other way around. I'm not saying I'm totally innocent; I watch and love Gossip Girl, 90210, and Grey's Anatomy; but I think society needs to stand up and demand clean entertainment so that our children at least have a chance to choose good behavior...

Oh good lord, why would you do a US remake of Season 1 of the UK version? They should have just created an entire new story line. I <3 the UK version, the cast was great! The story was refreshing, and now they ruined it! Ugh!! Just when I thought MTV couldnt get any worse (ie:jersey shore), the reached a new level of low.

Totally agreed with every word of your comment weffie. The world can also teach you something American people! British original version is the best, nothing can compete with that.

What the hell... why would mtv do this? The british version is top notch, why would they butcher it? At 1st I thought it was an american view on skins, but it's a remake... the hell?? MTV is really going down hill.

Fail! Why don't Americans just watch UK shows instead of making their own crap versions of everything?

No no no! Save yourself some time and just watch the UK version which was so amazing especially the first Series in my opinion. None of these actors can replace the original characters they're trying to, especially Cassie, who Hannah Murrey made my favorite character on that show!
