Skins Discussion: In Defense of Skins Generation 3
Everyone is entitled to their opinion and everyone is entitled to have a favorite generation. I mean it is impossible not too. Sometimes people just vibe with certain characters more than others.
However, I feel like no one has given this generation a chance. I feel like it may follow the path of the second generation. People hated on Gen 2 for most of Series 2. Then it came out on DVD and all of a sudden everyone was all about it, so much so that by the last episode they were attached hating on how it ended and are now quite judgmental of the third generation. I feel like this is how it will go with the Third Generation. I hope.
This generation is different. I like that it is different. I like that these characters had individual stories that lead them to the finale as a cohesive unit. Ready to take on the next year and probably get royally fucked up and screwed with. I love that there is a sweet relationship in Rich and Grace that has not been tainted with cheating. It has been done before…multiple times…and its nice to see a relationship that is awkwardly sweet. I like that out of all the generations this is the one that has the most misfits.
All I am saying is that I would wait until Series 6 to decide of this generation sucks. I feel like this generation is made up of really good young talent and has extremely unique and equally amazing characters as the other two generations.
