Turns out that the Parents Television Council  is, like, really mad for real about MTV’s remake of “Skins.” The buzzkills are pushing for a federal investigation into claims of child pornography law violations.

“In addition to the sexual content on the show involving cast members as young as 15, PTC counted 42 depictions and references to drugs and alcohol in the premiere episode,” the group wrote in a letter to the Department of Justice and the U.S. Senate and House Judiciary Committees. Don’t they know that the cool kids don’t keep track of how many beers they drank? Freshmen.

“It is clear that Viacom has knowingly produced material that may well be in violation of [several anti-child pornography laws].” Pornography laws? Oh, so sorry your Highnesses. I guess we’re not allowed to pile minors in a sweaty, semi-nude, post-opiate/coital orgy hill. Now if you’ll excuse me. I need to pull up my floorboards and find a better hiding place for this har drive. (THR)

The teens are getting even more cray cray in this longer, dirtier version of MTV’s “Skins” promo trailer. It looks like this one was intended to offend.

I’m okay with the pot, pills, and on-the-mouth kissing. What really bothers me is the alcohol abuse. And I don’t mean the over-consumption. I’m talking about the spilling. Who pours vodka and Zimas into their eyeballs? That’s no way to party. Especially in high school where alcohol is so hard to procure. I say show footage of the Indian kid trying to slurp 99 Bananas out of the carpet or GTFO. (Vulture)

First Look At Sexy Teens In MTV’s ‘Skins’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/first-look-at-sexy-teens-in-mtvs-skins-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/first-look-at-sexy-teens-in-mtvs-skins-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 MTV is preparing to launch their scripted remake of the cult UK series "Skins" in January, and today we have a first look. The series follows a group of students who have way more fun than I did in high school. And college. Basterds. I'm not familiar with the original UK series but from what I've been told by die-hard fans, this pilot is a pretty faithful remake. So, before you purists start whining about Americanizations or the fact that MTV doesn't play many music videos anymore, it's important that you recall this is a show about semi-nude teenagers. If you hate that, you're not a real American and you should move to England or some sh*t. Check out the trailer after the jump...
