I was a big Skins fan, but I checked out towards the end.

So hearing this gives me pause in checking it out, even though I really like what Zendaya is doing.

not just in what they're showing, but that it might be too cynical for its own good.

Zendaya and the kid who plays the asshole QB are killing it though, and i've been 100% engaged in both episodes.

NYT had an interesting article out this morning or last night about how statistically every kid in this show is an outlier and drug use, sex and basically every behavior except perhaps porn viewership is significantly lower than the generation before it, or in the case of marijuana usage roughly on average. Only vaping has seen a significant shift in trend for the "worse", and even that's at the expense of cigarettes.

That said, the direction has been pretty significant for a TV show (putting the Inception hallway special effect into the pilot was a hell of a flex), it seems like they've picked up a lot from Noah Hawley's and Vince Gilligan's shows in terms of clever visual cues and sound editing.

I loved the first two seasons of Skins but it's highly dated now in terms of both its visual style and depiction of teenage sexuality (if these kids are horny, those kids were psychotically so) whereas this show is taking a heightened but more nuanced look at things. It's got a lot on its plate and I'm really curious how it'll hold up as the shock value fades and the characters reckon with - or don't - their actions.

the opener they did with Kat, and the text montage with Nate and Jules were really well done.

Question though, Nate knows he's texting with Jules, right? I wasn't 100% but his glance over in class seem to indicate he does.

that little dealer kid cracks me up.

its an overload for me. Like on ep 3, where he goes to her guys and the guys says yo, you need to leave cuz my supplier is coming and he aint no joke and then the no joke happens.

Its hard for me to get it.

wife likes it though, so watch it with her.

Acting is really good too.

If a fat guy falls in the woods and there is no one around to see it, do the trees laugh?

Love the opening backstory and the carnival Some Came Running nod, and just the chaotic vibe this episode.

Nate worrying about Jules ratting him out when its gonna be Maddie who brings him down. I think she might report him next ep for choking her. Maddie's crazy and all but Nate deserves any shitty thing that happens to him behind this.

Jules character is crushing it.

Like they keep piling shock value on top of shock value on top of shock value on top of shock value.

But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't enjoying it. It's fine.

But yeah the musical number felt like the show being up it's own ass and nearly brought down what I thought was an otherwise solid finale.

Penultimate eps are nearly always the season's best, the Cassie stuff and nate.vs Fez was good but I didn't care about Rue's bladder diaries, talking pill bottles, and Jules misadventures felt like an episode of High Maintenance

I don't watch enough shitty soap opera-y TV and this was pretty good for that. The eye makeup was maybe the most over the top thing about the show by the end of it, though I did find it heartening that on its surface the show confirmed a lot of my worst fears about the generation below my younger sister's, so a bunch of journalists got together and put out articles confirming the kids these days are NOT getting as fucked up as this show suggests.

I think the series hit its apex during the carnival episode and immediate fallout from that, but it started backsliding when Nate went from a clever bad dude to a legitimate supervillain. Props to him for whatever he drew from in that last scene with his dad, though, that was horrifying. His whole family might be fucked up on a show that's otherwise pretty grounded but the acting is keeping it together for me.

maybe this is all these kids are into nowadays? my nephew says his (pwi)
highschool is atrocious...mid-upper class broken homes, rampant drug use,
suicides, security threats (inside and out), sh*tty administrators, but that sports
program stays winning.

I find myself more interested in some of the 2nd tier characters than Rue, and Jules who are only interesting half the time.

Nate as an interesting as fuck character. The first ep you just assume he's some amped up asshole meathead, which he is but he has so many weird ass layers its fascinating.

I'm not sure what Fez's out is here. With the blood on the money, Mouse now knows he jacked it, and while he might respect that for a minute, its not gonna be exactly hard to put together when he sees what happens to his supplier. I'm not sure what keeping that open ended was supposed to mean

Lexi is the Franklin from Peanuts character of the show. She doesn't do much but she seems like the only kid who doesn't seem like a psychological dumpster fire.

Cause I'm kinda all set with where they took that as well hah. It was compelling early on but got a little ridiculous by the end.
