** YMMV, but Jal's S1 episode seems to be a lot more enjoyable for classical music fans and/or former band geeks than for those who aren't into music. Classical fans will also recognize the two pieces she performs in the episode - the opening solo from Gershwin's ''Rhapsody in Blue'' and [[Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart Mozart's]] Clarinet Concerto - as two staples of the clarinet repertoire. In fact, they're popular requirements as an orchestral excerpt and a concerto (respectively) for university auditions, which Jal will be up for in a year. ShownTheirWork, indeed.

Added DiffLines:

** The show's portrayal of psychiatrists as being either ineffective (Cassie's being easily fooled by common anorexia tricks, J.J. and Emily getting the same pills for wildly different "issues") or actively dangerous (Effy's shrink in her S4 episode) was apparently an intentional version of this; [[WordOfGod Jaime Brittain]] said in interviews that he had a bad history with them. Still, it's troubling that a show that seems specifically aimed at and portraying the lives of troubled teens would discourage them from getting professional help.

Added DiffLines:

** The U.S. version's big RelationshipWritingFumble got a lot of InternetBackdraft for falling into this: while WordOfGod said that Tea wasn't really into Tony and was just bored, they didn't communicate this well in the show and there was far more chemistry between Tea and Tony than with her DesignatedLoveInterest Betty. Tea/Tony were a popular FanPreferredCouple and the overall impression was that their "confident lesbian" character was anything but. This would be one thing if "lesbians sleeping with men" wasn't unfortunately common in fiction, and something ''Skins'' had already done multiple times in the British version -- and related to real-life stereotypes about lesbian sexuality being especially malleable or "a phase."

** 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.

** Skins: Fire, particulary it's absolutely abhorred Naomi/Emily subplot, which many thought was tangential to Effy's main storyline and not remotely necessary, considering it just squeezed in the show's most popular couple for a brutal helping of anti-Fanservice.

** A lot of the statements from the show about Franky's GirlinessUpgrade in S6 were that her new, girly style was about her gaining confidence, suggesting that her previous style was because of a lack of confidence. Which would make sense if in S5 she had been covering up with baggy sweatshirts or something, but her outfits were actually quite well-coordinated and thought-out - or, [[http://www.autostraddle.com/skins-finale-episode-death-will-be-itself-134621/ as Autostraddle put it]], she "clearly had a passion for a certain kind of fashion." In that light, it seems as though the show was suggesting that ''any'' masculinity in women is due to a lack of confidence.

* AlasPoorScrappy: While never ''universally'' despised, [[spoiler: Freddie]] did have a large and vocal {{Hatedom}} (mostly because of DieForOurShip, though there were also some who just found him boring). Yet, the fandom was outraged by his death.

** As mentioned above, Merveille Lukeba's big ego made him very unpopular in the fandom - particularly during S4, when Merv ranted and raved on {{Twitter}} about how fans were more interested in Naomily than in Thomas and Pandora, even insulting Kathryn Prescott and Lily Loveless's acting skills.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Osama! The Musical is not very tasteful, but it's hysterical.


Added DiffLines:

** Tony himself, taking Josh sister's Abigail pornographic photos and ''sending it to all on Josh's contact list from his phone''. [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse Somehow it doesn't seem to have any legal repercussions after]].

** Some would also say Sid/Michelle in S2.

** Some would also say Sid/Michelle in S2.S2, although in fairness it was also portrayed as a mistake from both sides in the show.
** It was among complaints from those who didn't like Freddie/Effy (other that [[FanPreferredCouple he wasn't Cook]]). In season 3 they basically a. meet b. continue to stare at each other, and it's treated as a great love.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Wangst}}: Effy was treated - by the show, other characters and herself - like a tragic heroine for her family situation in season 3 (her mother having an affair and then parents divorcing), which could be completely justified... but maybe not in the show where ''the majority'' of characters had it worse and didn't receive nearly as much attention for it.
