MTV is getting serious flack from advertisers, the Parents Teacher Council, and other middle-aged people who I bet throw really lame parties over its new series “Skins.” Imported from England, “Skins” follows the lives of a bunch of underage teens as they get drunk, do drugs and have sex. Sounds like a good half-hour to me!

However, many have accused creator Bryan Elsley of making child pornography and would like to see him arrested. Yikes Magikes. Well, Elsley and MTV are sticking to their fully exposed teenage guns, and Elsley had this to say to the Los Angeles Times:

“The show is the opposite of pornography. It isn’t us who are being provocative. I think that some of the people who object to the show are being provocative in the use of that word.”

Yeah, I agree that the “child porn” label is a little harsh. How about “softcore child porn?” That what the old 90′s MTV series “Undressed” was: a bunch of teens pretending to have sex, and I think there was also a stupid story about sock puppet sex. “Undressed” didn’t scar me for life, though I do get a hard-on every time I put my socks on in the morning. Actually, that really sucks for me, so maybe “Skins” should be cancelled? I’m as conflicted as Tony’s friends after his accident… (Hollywood Reporter)
