PTC on MTV's Skins: Worst Show Ever!

by at . Comments

The Parents Television Council should strongly consider closing up shop.

Just as telling kids they can't do something only makes them more intrigued, calling Skins "the most dangerous show for teens" is only going to drive up ratings!

Nonetheless, MTV's new show is under fire from the PTC, thanks to this very trailer depicting "high school characters engaging in drug use and casual sex" ...

"Despite the MA-rating for Skins, MTV appears to be deliberately targeting teens with its marketing campaign," PTC president Tim Winter said in a statement.

"The marketing campaign itself makes light of lying to parents and participating in all manner of harmful, irresponsible, illegal and adult-themed behavior."

"Skins may well be the most dangerous show for children we have ever seen."

And with that, MTV just guaranteed another huge, Jersey Shore-style hit.

I have never watched any of these shows & nor would I because I think they are absolutely Garbage and they send the wrong kind of message out to young teens. In my view I think Mtv should be held accountable for such garbage

Why would any reasonable person listen to ANYTHING the parents television council has to say? They're against any television show, music video, song, or photo that contains ANY form of sexuality. That organization is ran by a bunch of religious prudes who are basically trying to force everyone who's under 18 to live in a world where sexuality doesn't exist because they think it's evil.

This is not the life of most teens in America, as they want you to believe. As the mother of two and teacher to hundreds of teens, I know. Is there alcohol, drugs, and sex in the world they live in? Of course there is. Just as there is in everybody's world and always has been. Does that mean that's what our life is about or all we think about or strive for in life? It would be a pretty pathetic, boring, destructive, and depressing life. Besides... the show just sucks.

Season 1 & 2 were okay. They were borderline provocative, which is okay, because that's what is interesting. I watched it not because of that, but because it had somewhat a good storyline to it. As every season passes, they try to push it by adding more of the elements that arouses teens; honestly, without it there's nothing to show. What I don't like about the show is that it encourages young children to think this is the norm and it's what they should be getting up to. It horrible and the sad thing is there are soo many other shows out there doing the same thing!

Not that this has anything to do with this story *Cough*, I just read a story from Fox News about the Frayser High School in Memphis. Seems that they have had 86 pregnant or given birth students this year alone. That's a total of 26% teen prego rate in the school's zip code. Not sure if they counted males in the % ratio. But still... 86?!?!? Just sayin...

Skins isn't american, its an english E4 show about 4-5 years old. And its not disgusting. It was an amazing show. Well at least season 1-2 was. Really realistic, not the 90210 kind of show. It was real teen drama. I love it.
