Hello Folks. We’re back with our 2nd installment of our soon to be famous, blogger-to-blogger live Skins g-chat session. I don’t even know what I just said. Anywhere, here it is… read (with caution) as you watch MTV’s Skins, episode 3: CHRIS (spoilers ahead if you can figure them out)…
ediddy: haha let’s begin!! TV MA. the intro for this series is pretty cool
Slamwich: It’s growing on me a bit. I’m getting better at separating the two series in mind.
Slamwich: I had about 6 friends in high school who looked like that kid.
ediddy: haha he’s fairly generic. well so far this is exactly the same
Slamwich: Where do unstable people get cash from?
Slamwich: Is there some kind of Crazy ATM?
ediddy: ugh this abu abud kid annoys me
Slamwich: They need more Black friends. He is a poor substitute.
ediddy: agreed. tea rockin the tank. accurate
Slamwich: someone did their research. Why is that Abu kid in a sweater vest? These kids must be high.
ediddy: haha. im going to say “jiggy” every time i want to dance from now on
Slamwich: Oh gross!
ediddy: yea that was gross
Slamwich: Who could possibly stay seated. That was worse than last week’s dance sequence.
ediddy: hahahaha. i liked the dance
Slamwich: Blassie thought this was an ’80s party.
ediddy: hahahah. that sweater vest is toooo much. chris is kind of cute. I SEE A BLACK KID. BEHIND CHRIS’S RIGHT SHOULDER
Slamwich: He’s not as attractive as UK Chris, but he’ll do for America. Hey! A black friend! This teacher is a whore on wheels.
Slamwich: That kid was cock blocked by his own cock. Oh high schoolers
ediddy: haha nice. this ep is literally exactly the same
Slamwich: Why are they staying in his gross house?
ediddy: the acting was about 1000 times better in the british series. it’s kind of amazing actually. literally the same words and im not convinced
Slamwich: There are no talented young people left in this country. And the ones that are can’t be bothered with teenage smut. It’s unfortunate.
ediddy: haha daisy is way more slutty than jal
Slamwich: And she has better boobs.
ediddy: haha agreed. daisy is kinda hot. she’s like another tea… milk mustaches!!!!
Slamwich: Soooo ’90s.
ediddy: ok i laughed out loud at the cup on the penis thing
Slamwich: I totally missed that little easter egg. Blassie is super tall. Are her feet off the couch?
ediddy: haha she is tall
Slamwich: Those better be deep dish. Over $120 bucks for 5 pizzas?
ediddy: hahahahaha. no joke. here we go, turn from comedy to drama in .2 seconds… i sense a formula here
Slamwich: This seems a lot sadder in this version. I think it’s because he seems a little more lucid than UK Chris.
ediddy: interesting… yea, i think thats perceptive, it’s def sadder
Slamwich: Oh god and he broke a mirror!
ediddy: of course
Slamwich: This kid is having a rough day.
ediddy: this is JUST like the other ep – i shouldn’t have watched chris’s ep over the weekend
Slamwich: SHUT UP SWEATER VEST!
ediddy: WORD. it’s not working…”pile driver” WHAT IS GOING ON im going to start saying “it’s not common in my world ya know” a lot more
Slamwich: Sex Position Chat with your favorite high school juniors.
This is making republicans cry
Slamwich: It’s 2011, who’s buying a CD player? Oddly enough, this show is trapped in time.
ediddy: last weeks episode was a lot better
Slamwich: Too much Stanley and Sweater Vest this week. Less wacky Nanas.
Slamwich: Also, this show is not very good at casting drug dealers.
ediddy: agreed. dirty sanchez is not acceptable
Slamwich: To his credit, pills looked like a much better deal.
ediddy: hahah yea… oh this is a fun trip. it’s like a fred durst music video
Slamwich: “Just give me something to break!”
Slamwich: I miss 10 years ago
ediddy: i dont
ediddy: this is just sad. oh my god that fall would kill someone
Slamwich: I liked the “newness” of last week better but this episode is all the best of the original.
ediddy: i dont know im not feeling it
Slamwich: That “Hollaback” just saved the scene.
ediddy: “youre a very hostile little dude” is funny…totally, more people need to say holla back… sometimes the music is amazing. sometimes it kind of sucks… THE BUTT SCENE. the PTC IS CRINGING
Slamwich: They are shaking/crying/yelling at Obama right this second.
ediddy: shaking their fists in the air… tea… tank top. im telling you.
ediddy: cute baby alert
Slamwich: I have a cousin who looks just like that baby. #whitesideofthefamily
ediddy: hahaha. chris is shining here
Slamwich: They need to do some serious thinning of the herd after season one.
Slamwich: Enjoy your brush with fame sweater vest
ediddy: haha. the editing is so imovie 2008
Slamwich: This whole thing is like a Com Arts project.
Slamwich: Unrecognizable music, yelling, bad acting, etc.
ediddy: it’s like it’s trying too hard to be hipster
Slamwich: Because they’re sticking so close to the original, it doesn’t feel very American.
ediddy: exactly… ep 2 worked because it was fresh. this isnt
Slamwich: There needs to be a happy medium though. There was too much new last week and zero this week.
ediddy: yea thats the problem. blassie is next week.
Slamwich: OOH BLASSIE!
ediddy: did he just call her muffy
Slamwich: That was his best moment so far.
ediddy: blassies shirt is so delias
Slamwich: Yes! I remember that catalog. And Alloy. The height of fashion.
ediddy: yes! seriously daisy is a homo
Slamwich: She was more excited for boobs than Sweater Vest and that’s saying a lot.
ediddy: why is he still wearing that shirt. of course, he stays with the teacher
Slamwich: Sadness. Yeah teachers are mandated reporters so this would be the worst idea of all time.
ediddy: hahaahah, seriously…can you imagining harboring one of your students…
Slamwich: He will literally swallow anything. They are making drugs look kind of awesome on this show.
ediddy: yea. SO excited for blassie. and for TEA to return
Slamwich: Who was she hooking up with? Have we met her yet?
ediddy: i dont think so i think it was someone related to blassie…who knows
Slamwich: Mama Blass
ediddy: shall we do our grading?
ediddy: d for story, c for puns/slang, b+ for outfits/accuracy
Slamwich: D+ for slavishness B for making drugs look appealing F for Sweater Vest
ediddy: glorious. well next week will be better. it cant be worse. clearly we were better represented last week
Slamwich: I actually preferred this week to last…even if it means we can’t be friends anymore
ediddy: WHAT?? explain
Slamwich: I liked the familiarity. The kid playing Chris can hold his own. It felt like it was going somewhere, possibly because I knew where it was going. Tea’s episode felt a little rushed.
ediddy: ah yea i agree thats fair. chris was good. the pacing was steady for sure
Slamwich: One too many persecution story lines to squeeze in last week.
ediddy: haha thats true. too many minorities maybe.
Slamwich: We were all up in there last week. There were more minorities in last week’s episode than the entire run of Will & Grace.
And there it is folks. Come back next as we chat our way through Cadie’s episode!
