Skins aired and is already facing a lot of heat from critics. I really wonder who the "critics" are. It features underage kids dpoing everything that underage kids want to do. I know what your thinking typical MTV, huh?
I have no idea what the big deal is in the first place. The lobotomy that is Jersey shore has made some oversexed tanned alcoholic young adults very rich. Just last year "The Situation" (shudders) made $10M because of his stint with dancing with the stars.
Now, this wouldn't even phase me given America's falls puritanical tendencies, but to put this into a more demonstrable perspective, GM and Tacobell (fast food chain for you non-yanks) actually pulled their ads. A statement was issued saying that they were not in support of the show or it's "values".
I pulled a muscle rolling my eyes.
