ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT FOR_Skins Season 6 on FOUR
Skins is back on NZ screens and it’s as nail biting and intense as ever. I was a little sceptical of the new cast last season, I thought they lacked something, maybe becasue they were missing the face of previous cast heartthrob Freddy. But true to form, SKINS season 6 has delivered and I am back in love with the cast once again. The storylines are always somewhat controversial exploring sexuality, dysfunctional homelives, mental illness and addiction as it follows the lives of a group of Bristol teens. SKINS is a must watch and will really open your eyes on subjects you have previously been sheltered from! Season 6 is currently on FOUR, 9.30pm Monday nights or catch up now OnDemand.
