Although I don’t live in the UK, I have seen seasons 1-4 of Skins. I absolutely love the first group from season one and two. When season three came, they brought in new faces, except for Effy, who was Tony’s sisters. She was the only one who was in all four seasons and the only reason I still watched seasons three and four. I tried to watch five, but I just could not get into it.
I don’t usually like to use the word groundbreaking, but that is what this show was. Skins covered issues such as drug use, sex, strong profanity, and other hot topics that most shows would shy away from. Of course the reason for that is because they were teenagers. MTV tried to make an American version of this show and it failed. Although it was good on a few levels, it just couldn’t match the uncensored UK version.
Trailers for every season are directed in a very unique and storytelling way. This will be the return of Effy, Cassie, and Cook, which they are naming the episodes Fire, Pure and Rise. I just sure as hell hope that Sid found Cassie and that we get at least one scene with Effy and Tony. I am sure the biggest question on everyone’s mind is what happened in that basement with Cook too!
This past Wednesday, Conan O’Brien hosted a Google Hangout session with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson where people were able to ask questions and interact with all three. They also debuted the trailer for their new movie The Internship, starring both Vaughn and Wilson. This will pair up the two again in what looks like, as he said in the trailer, a “Hunger Games for the minds.”
The trailer made me chuckle a bit, but I didn’t really find it that funny. I feel it landed kind of short on the jokes. I just don’t understand how these characters don’t know who Professor Xavier is. They seem to be the type of people who would have got that it was a joke. Either way, I will be looking forward to this because I am a fan of Vince Vaughn. The movie comes out June 7th 2013.
After a long break from saving the world, we are back and we brought a friend! Francis Sky of Flash Flood Media joins us to talk about the shit we liked this week and his experience at the premier of ‘The Devil’s Carnival.’ Enjoy this captivating tale of our adventures and survival!
This week I came across an interview with Andrew Garfield about the new Amazing Spider-Man movie. He talks about what playing Spider-man means to him as an actor and as a fan. He claims he is lucky and unlucky about playing spider-man because he calls himself a fan first and foremost. He also goes on to talk about the various comic book runs and how he used them to his advantage on portraying Peter and Spidey.
The best part of these videos is when he talks about how excited he was to see the first (Sam Raimi) Spider-Man movie. He was so excited that he bought a bootleg/pirated version of it. Of course, the biggest rumor going around that everyone is asking about is when will Spider-Man make a cameo in Avengers?
The new trailer is out now (more on this on SSWL) and I was flabbergasted by it. I literally had to pick up my jaw from the floor I loved it so much. THIS is the Spider-Man I was expecting to see in the first movie. A jokey, fun, and geek Parker/Spider-man. Emma Watson and Andrew Garfield look great together and look like they will have great chemistry on screen.
Not only does the trailer look great (minus the inconsistent zooms), but the cast is amazing. These are some of my favorite actors on TV right now.
