Sponsored Tingles – Skins DVD Giveaway!

It’s the show that launched the career of Slumdog’s Dev Patel but it also features young Marcus from About A Boy – Nicholas Hoult who plays Tony, a boy so manipulative, so devious, so amoral, and therefore so irresistibly attractive, he makes Chuck Bass look like Kevin Arnold.

This is Skins, a show brave enough to make sure their lead character does NOT enjoy a fairy tale ending. Hell no. And now it’s Effy’s turn. Season 3 will focus on Tony’s younger sister – everything he is, all the bad attributes, and MORE.

It’s all I can say without releasing a spoiler because, really, you should start from the beginning and go straight through instead of wasting brain activity on dumbassness like The Hills. Yes, Audrina REALLY is that dumb.

Skins is the grittiest, most disturbing, and the most movingly real teen drama on television, originating of course not from the land of the MiniVan but from the UK where their entertainment offerings are slightly less Disney-fied, not for parents who tut tut tut all day about how “my kids would never do that” while their son is nailing his chemistry teacher in the art room.

Skins, while scripted, is the opposite of contrived “Hills” reality and still more rewarding and insightful than that bullsh-t Jon & Kate = assholes.
