A cross between Kids and Gossip Girl, Skins is an edgy Brit-teen drama which follows the lives and loves of shameless teenagers. They get high, get drunk, get laid and get up for final exams while pushing boundaries and managing parents with the finesse only teenagers can. Tony (Nicholas Hoult, About a Boy) is the best-looking boy in town. His sidekick Sid is less successful with the ladies, much less until bonkers anorexic case Cassie turns up. But Sid's in love with Michelle, the school hottie, who goes out with Tony of course. Then there's sassy musician Jal, party animal Chris, Maxxie and best mate Anwar, who manages to combine the pills, the thrills and the spills with his faith - well, sort of. Volume 1 contains the original 9-episode UK first season, on 3 discs packed with brand new unseen Skins material.
