** Kaya Scodelario (Effy) and Nicholas Hoult (Tony) are much bigger stars now than they were before ''Skins'', starring in movies like ''ClashofTheTitans'' and ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' respectively. Scodelario was even one considered for the role of [[Film/TheHungerGames Katniss Everdeen]], though she lost out to JenniferLawrence (who is, coincidentally, Nicholas Hoult's real-life girlfriend).

!!'''The film:'''
* FridgeHorror: Two drive-thru windows for a liquor store. The current laws have established that drinking and driving is illegal. That said it is still not uncommon for people to get pulled over for drinking and driving. How the company that insures the liquor store did not see the huge liability of having TWO drive-thru windows is beyond comprehension.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Herbie is played by Noah Watts, better known by some many years later as [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII Ratohnhaké:ton, a.k.a. Connor]].

* CanonSue: Franky in S5, when to some her powers as TheHeart bordered on the supernatural and she had yet to show any major flaws. Definitely not the case in S6, though, when she becomes more of something between JerkassSue and BlackholeSue.
** Effy. She's a bitch to everyone, manipulates them so she can get what she wants, and yet everyone falls all over her just because they think she's pretty.

** A decade ago, "lesbian" characters who slept with men were a dime a dozen, often the only way to get homophobic viewers to accept them. However, the US remake of ''Skins'' ignited quite a controversy over Tea, a character touted as a "confident lesbian," spending so much time mooning over and sleeping with Tony, with even a lot of straight reviewers attacking it for relying on a tired and offensive cliche. Along with a similar firestorm over ''TheKidsAreAllRight'', it showed just how much SocietyMarchesOn.

* HollywoodHomely: While Effy is undeniably stunning, were supposed to be under the impression that Pandora should believably be shoved into the Plain-Jane sidekick role, despite played by the lovely Lisa Blackwell, who's mainly just given funny haircuts, less makeup and little-girl clothes that are supposed to indicate an unattractive (though really undeniably) HollywoodNerd type.

** Sketch of the first generation may have had a different body type than most of the other girls (though actually a quite similar one to Katie and Emily of the next generation -- and Katie managed to be an AlphaBitch), worn boyish clothes and had perpetually creepy expressions. But she still looked good enough that a JerkAss teacher calling her ugly, or even Maxxie and Anwar considering her 'a five' to Anwar's 'seven' weren't really justified.



** Katie in her S4 storyline, though she managed to be [[IronWoobie quite tough about it]].



** Josh Stock polevaults over the line when he tries to force Tony to have sex with his sister.

** Josh Stock polevaults over the line when he tries to force Tony to have sex with his sister. Although given how he's satisfied just by Tony's begging in crying, he might have been shooting only at this from the beginning.
