    I agree Skins is great.. I wish I had known of it sooner but it has great writing and great scene shots. You can compare it to what you see on HBO and Showtime in America.. But in Britain it’s just on their telly (cable).. If you are looking for intense drama try Single Father. Misfits is another great one but it is more of a Science Fictional/Drama. If you are looking for Comedy. I love Miranda, How Not To Live Your Life and a classic one Black Books.
