The teen drama which appears to have taken British television by storm.
The show follows the lives of the characters:

Tony, the popular, confident, 'hit with the ladies' boy.

Sid, Tony's best friend, and who is also in love with Tony's girlfriend. He's often left in Tony's shadow.

Chris, he's in love with their psychology teacher and generally enjoys excitement. Has a tendency not to think everything through before he does it.

Michelle, Tony's not so happily ever after girlfriend. She gives a lot more love than she receives.

Maxxie, a homosexual, he's not ashamed of his sexuality, and neither are his friends, apart from Anwar.

Anwar, is Maxxie's best friend, although he believes homosexuality is wrong. He has a strong like for women.

Jal, a very intelligent and financially comfortable girl who's mother died and lives in a very musical family, playing clarinet herself.

Cassie, an anorexic girl who is deeply in love with Sid, despite knowing he's in love with Michelle.

Effy, Tony's sister, she very rarely speaks, and it's mentioned the only one she can really feel comfortable around is her brother Tony.

Note: these character descriptions were formed from the first series alone.

The show itself shows the highs and lows of each character, as they fall in and out of love, drugs and friendship.

At first I didn't think it would be worth watching, hell, I was wrong~

Shane Richie is also going to appear in the new series at some point as a teacher.

An amazing British show that is soon to be slaughtered by MTV. Will probably be adored by preteen American girls. Will mess up every detail and every character.
Joe: I was watching Skins last night.
Cindy: That new show on MTV?!?!
Joe: No, dipshit, the real one.
