So here are my personal thoughts on Skins and Being Human last night:

SyFy did a good job with Being Human.  They have the ability to push the limits a little with mature content, so if you have basic cable you should give it a try.  Skins on the other hand thanks to MTV was not appealing at all.  The first episode was pretty much shot for shot of the original.

Reasons why I didn’t like Skins:

  • Music choice.  Come on you are MTV, the music made the scenes for certain characters in the original.  If the original had hip hop, put hip hop.  If the music was ragging due rage. 
  • Casting.  The actors are fine but they just don’t capture the essence of the characters as the original cast does.
  • Editing.  If you are going to bleep words out, why put them in the script.  If you are going to do that just re-show the original and bleep that!

I say skip it and watch Harry’s Law.  Sound off on your thoughts.

    Skins was so disappointing! MTV really chickened out and miscast the whole thing. Being Human was okay, my heart was won when Josh said “my lady”. I’ll be back for Being Human for sure, Skins will be when I don’t have anything else going on.

      I really felt that he meant it when he said “My lady” a guy can’t go wrong saying that. He just needed a hat to tip.
