TV: SKINS 5.2
The new series of Skins continues being promising and enjoyable after its promising and enjoyable start last week. This week it's the turn of Richard the heavy metal fan who is totally into the subculture. His problem: he can't talk to girls. As his mate Alo is also pretty crap at it they turn to Franky for help but she doesn't know much more than them so she suggests Grace.
What we have from then on is pretty much a two-hander which leads to some pretty funny scenes such as the one when Grace adopts the mode of a hard-core metal fan in order to understand where Richard is coming from. Like I said last week, I'm not going to go into any detail about these episodes as I'm hanging on till the end of the series when I'll have a better idea. Like last week it ends on a hopeful note, with Grace coming over as a very likeable and altruistic person. Which makes me wonder what the hell she is doing with the queen bitch Mini. Perhaps we'll find out next week when Mini herself becomes the focus.
