skins in america

It's about how excited I am about the whole first season of Skins US. Yah, the UK original is dece but I love the forced drama and overacting and exagerated characters that only good old america can provide! It's this artistically shot drama about these street smart kids getting into urban trouble.. basically a vamped up, sexed up and Rock and Roll version of the classic Degrassi. From the very first over-extended opening scene of Tony's (omg fuck me) morning routine scene to the iconic shot of Cadie, in a red dress, haggered from a night of binging pills, standing at water's edge, watching as her friends emerge from the water after driving a stolen van full of weed into the river. It's just really sick.
