Skins Rewind: With A Friend Like Maxxie

Remember in December when I said I would start recapping the second season of Skins? Well I didn’t forget. I just put it off until now.

In the very first episode of the series (the episode the US version would do a severe disservice to), we got our first glimpse at the originalĀ Skins gangĀ  – Tony, Sid, Michelle, Cassie, Chris, Jal, Maxxie and Anwar.

The First Generation - Look how pretty they all are! (Ick, Sketch!)

Let’s get into it.
