MTV's raunchy new series, Skins is drawing in bad reviews from everywhere! Skins, was originally a British show and MTV aired it's American version on January 17, 2011. Sources depict the show as being obscene, short of child pornography, unrealistic and distasteful.
The producers casted actors between the ages of 15 to 19, just as the original BBC show had done. But as a long time runner in TV Entertainment, MTV should have known better. Here, in the U.S., child pornography is legally defined as any visual depiction of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct. In some circumstances, even a picture of a naked child could be considered illegal child pornography if it is sexually suggestive. You can't put a bunch of minors on TV and have them act out sex scenes. That's why most shows cast adults to play teen roles.
All this does is make me feel like I made the right decision in having the cable in my house cut off. It's saving me money, and my children are not absorbing this mess. I actually watched the episode online. It was kind of hard to sit through, because it was just really bad. Even if I were to put aside any bias that I have, regarding the sexual content and drug usage, the show would still suck. It was not realistic.
Look at what other people are saying about this show (these are also my sources for this post):
"With ads that feature groups of barely clothed teenagers, “Skins” is surely one of the most sexually charged programs that MTV has featured." Brian Stelter - The New York Times
"So while there's not live sex on camera—having seen four episodes in advance, I actually found the series' depictions of drugs more unusual for American TV than its sex scenes—the definition of pornography is trickier when underage actors are involved." James Poniewozik - TIME
Taco Bell has pulled its ads from the show:
"Spokesperson Rob Poetsch tells The Hollywood Reporter, "We advertise on a variety of MTV programs that reach our core demographic of 18 to 34 year olds, which included the premiere episode of Skins."
"Upon further review, we’ve decided that the show is not a fit for our brand and have moved our advertising to other MTV programming," he added." - Lindsay Powers - Hollywood Reporter Exclusive
