Having just finished the first two seasons of the original 'Skins' television show myself, I also held reservations of the American version until I stumbled upon the US 'Skins' Haters Gallery. This clever promotional campaign takes comments from the original show's fans and juxtaposes them with scenes from the show that clearly contradict them.
I guess what the US 'Skins' Haters Gallery is trying to show us is that we shouldn't judge something until we've actually given it a chance to prove itself. Who knows, it might be as successful as the American version of 'The Office.'
