    An American version of Skins on MTV? Isn’t that just called Undressed? I hope so, because that show ruled!

  • Lindsay

    BOOOOOOOOO to MTV for americanizing a show that is perfectly good for americans in its british form… :(

  • Werner

    LOL, indeed, it’s bad news for Nancy Grace, but great news for justice-loving citizens who don’t have to foot the bill now for what would have been the exorbitant costs of prosecuting the killer.

  • Josh Emerson

    Oh God, an MTV Skins remake? This cannot turn out well. MTV will turn it into The Hills: East Coast or something similarly awful.

    This reminds me of how I felt when I heard ABC and NBC were, at different times, developing American versions of the awesome British show Gavin & Stacey. It just won’t work. Situations like The Office are one in a million.

    How sad that a good boy (Ryan Jenkins) had to become a victim of a phony lifestyle.He wasted his life of great potential on a lowlife with implants on top of it. Ryan for what?
    What did she have to offer that you graved so much that it drove you to that?
    The pain in our chests is suffocating us.

    Love for ever
    Rita and Dave

    I do not look foward to MTV’s treatment of SKINS. I’ d rather watch the BBC version. MTV’s ‘reality” shows suck. IMO.

    @Rita Riley
