I've only watched the first two episodes of series 5 so that may not be enough to judge but so far I don't love it nearly as much as series 1-4. I'm not sure if it's the entirely new cast and I'm just not read to let go of the old cast, but it doesn't feel like Skins. Actually it seems more like a slightly more dramatic less sing-y Glee with more cussing. Glee is only partially worth watching because of the singing. Skins shouldn't be reduced to a whining high school drama. But I've only watched two episodes so i'm not gonna give up on it yet.
Any other thoughts on Series 5?
