Day126 - Skins

*no spoilers* I just finished season 4 of Skins. It was hard going - as if they had a writer change or rushed parts of the story - but I'm glad I stuck with it, I feel satisfied with the ending. The tone of the show took a bit to get used to, the characters seemed so empty, but slowly revealed the true force behind the show (and everything): Love.

Of course, therein is served several courses of mindfuck, of which I've found myself well-versed and relating to - in fact disturbingly so. But the core remains, rather than the remains of the core.

The cast is scrapped every 2 seasons so this was the finale for the second generation. A year is a long time to wait between seasons, but better slow, honed art than fast, greedy filler.

Another great aspect to the show is the soundtrack - it is continually strong and well considered. Here's one of the tracks Skins introduced me to - fantastic song, used to great effect in one of the earliest episodes:
