Is MTV trying to make me dislike their version of Skins before the first episode even airs? While I’ve enjoyed some of the TV spots, this extended trailer (embedded below) has me rolling my eyes.
Sure, there is a ton of new footage and some of it is funny. But I cannot move past how similar some of the characters (Tony, Michelle, Stanley, Chris) and plot lines (Let’s drive the car into the river, shall we?) are to the original series. Throw in some dry, monotone acting and this trailer does not excite.Vodpod videos no longer available.
What are your thoughts on the latest Skins trailer? Am I being too hard on this new show? Sound off below.
Skins premieres January 17 at 10 PM on MTV.
