What In Remake Hell?
So the big brains at MTV have decided to remake a treasured British teen angst show called Skins. This has bad idea written all over it.
The UK version was a masterpiece. (The above pic is from the UK's original.) The cast was incredible. Beautiful, but not so beautiful they looked like they came from central casting. They were real, lovable, hysterical, and all together really screwed up.
From the two previews on mtv.com it looks almost identical... almost. If MTV liked the show so much why not just run the UK version? It would probably do really well because everyone likes to hear British teens call their friends "wankers" and "twats".
