rewatching Skins gen 2, and holy fuck is Effy such a tease in the first episode.
The episode when Katie finds out she can’t have kids breaks my heart every time.
We have these posters on our busses for the Distress Center and there’s a picture of a mans face on it, but the man looks so much like John Foster its insane. Every tine I see it I think ‘oh hell no I’m not calling there, John Fosters gonna kill my boyfriend.’
the fact that Skins needs extras, yet again, and I’m not in Bristol to volunteer, yet again, makes me really fucking mad.
"They made me go and talk to this counsellor woman who kept saying ‘But why Elizabeth, why do you think you withheld speech?’. I used to just say ‘I dunno’ til it was time to go home.

But I did know. Sort of.
Okay. So. Paris Hilton isn’t an It Girl. Clara Bow was an It Girl. She was one of the biggest silent film stars ever. The Brooklyn Bonfire. I think we’re really similar. She’s a brunette. I’m a brunette. Her Dad was mentally impaired. My Dad is mentally impaired. She was really good at poker. I’m really good at poker. She married a cowboy. I don’t think I’m getting married but if I did it would probably be to a cowboy.
Anyway, basically she was the best film star, like, ever
But then the talkies started, and the films weren’t silent any more. And it would be fine, except when Clara actually had to speak, she just froze. She couldn’t stop looking at the microphones pushed at her face. She got mike fright. She retired at the age of 26 and never made another film ever again.
But even though Clara Bow couldn’t deal with talking in public, and Paris Hilton could probably talk for fucking hours about fucking anything, I reckon if Clara Bow met Paris Hilton, she’d punch her lights out.
But I don’t think the counsellor woman would have really understood that."
WTF WITH THE DETOUR SIGN AND THE WOMAN ACROSS THE STREET AND THE SAME FUCKING OPENING SHIT I HATE THIS. Couldn’t make it past one minute omg..
okay so is skins us supposed to be a total rip off of the original skins? cause all the names are the same/slightly changed and everything else is the fucking same wtf is this shit
