"Lacked punch compared to Season 1, with a lot of time spent dealing with darker issues."

Season 1 of Skins was fresh, something different almost a Dawson's Creek on party drugs. They didn't pull any punches and it was an in your face like it or lump it. Season two took a darker turn, we were confronted with Tony's accident and the group having to deal with his new found disability. The writers were put in a position where they had a shocking ending to season one but had to follow through and deal with the aftermath.

My favourite episode this season would have to be Episode 5 dealing with Chris who would have to be my favourite character. We also discovered mid season that the creator had made the decision to replace the cast every two seasons. Giving us fresh faces and new stories. Fans have come together in an attempt to save the current cast members from being axed. But I'm sure that their fate is already sealed.

Overall the season took a different direction from the first. While it is important that shows evolve as their characters do Skins still managed to stay true to its form. Replacing the cast maybe a risky move and I was disappointed in the way that so many things were left open at the end of this season.

We'll see what the future holds for Skins later this year...
