NEW CAST LIKES!! WOOT!! etc. etc.

I'm much more excited about seeing this lot than I thought I'd be, and it's all looking rosy so far.



(Alex, Dakota, Sean, Sebastian, Will, Laya, Freya, Jessica)

On a shallow level Freya and Jessica are plain gorgeous and everyone else looks like they could have something interesting going on (apart from Alex but I have a feeling that's down to it being a bad photo of him). And Freya's from Edinburgh too ... hello home town celebrity!

I'd actually be pretty happy too if they left them styled just the way they are in the photo - apart from being a little on the colourless side they look really natural and like an actual group of real people.

Don't have a clue what people on the E4 site are going on about though, that place is full of literally the worst kind of short-sighted nonsense possible. Maybe they won't be as good as our favs, but for God's sake give them a chance first! And to anyone who thinks they're ugly or "not proper Skins" characters ... do you actually realise what you're going on about? There is no set identity for what these guys have to look like, that's the whole point. Apart from Freya being a bit posher looking that others (anyone remember Tony though?) and Dakota looking ridiculously young (ditto Pandora) I see nothing to dislike at all. Apart from the fact that they're actually not just Gen 3 again, which is obviously what some people are looking for ... fools.

In other news, Cambridge Folk Festival is the best festival EVER (coming to BBC late August - if you keep an eye out for the unwashed guy with shortish blonde hair, glasses and a terrible dancing style then that'll be me) and Guided By Voices is the best band EVER:

Foreign Thoughts

Jesus Christ, never have first impressions been so fucking off-base.



Just got through my episode 2 rewatch and blow me if it isn't one of the best things this cast has done.

BEWARE: CONTAINS WAFFLINGCollapse )

And if y'all could tell me what you think actually happened with Naomi and Sophia that'd be most appreciated. It kinda decides whether I end up thinking of this ep as I do currently or as I did back in the dark night of Thursday.

WHAT THE FUCK

THE FUCK IS GOING ON I DON'T GET IT.

IT WAS AWESOME AND THEN SAD AND THEN WHY NAOMI? WHY WHY WHY WHY?!?

JUST ... NAW. THIS ISN;T COOL NONONONON.

ASHHHHHHHAAHAHAHAHAHA
Well after that mindfuck of an episode I needed some hope. Thank God then for Betsy's always reassuring GIFs and for E4's always great extra material (apologies, but I can't embed vids for the life of me).

One for all and all for one

Someone said they couldn't understand why this wasn't in the episode and I wholeheartedly agree. Then again, if this had been included, it would have just been yet another example of them carrying the entire thing for me.

And then I was off getting all pissy about how badly this Sophia storyline is going to affect what I want from the series. And then ...

Fitch family emergency meeting

Hold on just one god-fucking-damn second. Is that ... Rob being a sweet peacemaker? Emily giving up on her family? Jenna going all out into war-on-gays mode? JAMES CROSS-DRESSING?

O. M. G.

ONCE MORE INTO THE BREACH DEAR FRIENDS.

I DON'T HAVE A TV SO I HAVE TO WAIT FOR CHENNL 4 OD TO CATCH UP.

I AM LITERALLY SHAKING.

Back on track

No idea when these went up and I bet everyone's alreay seen them. But these are my favourites, and boy are they ever good.

Warning: Contains lulz, giggles, gays and tits.Collapse )

Dark Was The Night
