Talk Back: "Skins" Season Finale

I don't know about you but I am going to miss the cast of Skins.

You've already read my advance review for the second season finale of Skins, which sees the departure of the entire cast, save Tony's little sister Effy and her friend Pandora, as Season Three will feature new characters, rather than our faves as they embark on new adventures. (And if you haven't read my review, do so now.)

Sniffle, sniffle.

But I am curious what you thought of last night's heartbreaking season finale of Skins. Did you get choked up when Tony finally told Sid that he loved him best and sobbed as the revolving door came back around empty? Did you cheer when Anwar accepted Maxxie's invitation to go to London and turned his back on manipulative and sociopathic opportunist Sketch? Did you realize just how much you loved Jal when she gave a gut-wrenching speech at Chris' funeral? And cheer when those fireworks went off?

Talk back here.

Skins launches its third season in the UK in 2009. Stay tuned for news about a US launch date as soon as I get word from BBC America.

I'm still crying over the finale. I am gonna miss Tony and Sid especially and the scene with them at the airport made me sob out loud, something that's a little embarassing as I'm not a teenager!

There were so many incredible and incredibly touching moments in the finale - Jal and Michelle in the duvet...Jal's "eulogy" at Chris' funeral...Maxie inviting Anwar to London. But the best moment of all was between Tony and Sid as Sid left to go find Cassie. Their relationship has been one of the most honest friendships ever portrayed on television and it was truly gut-wrenching to see Tony (for once!) be emotional and show that he truly does care about his friend.

I am looking forward to Effy's adventures but I will miss this wonderful cast of characters!

LOVED the finale for all the reasons you mentioned in your orig. review. I agree with Hadley that the scene with Michelle and Jal under the duvet was amazing, as was her taking Jal to the zoo so she could show her where she first met Chris. It's small moments like that that prove just how amazing this show is. I wish that even adult dramas could have the emotional complexity of Skins. Effy's great but I am gonna miss everyone.

Just watched, oh my gawd, I can't believe we won't see them any more! This was a pitch-perfect ending that I wish was 2hrs long just because there is so much more to see. Like, does Sid find Cassie? What happens to Tony and Michelle? I want to see the antics of Anwar and Maxxie (and bf) living in London. And Jal! We saw very little of her for much of the series and then she just became a powerhouse at the end show. Effy is fine and dandy but I've grown to love the original gang and want to learn more about them.

@jen: I totally agree. If you watch the first season, Jal seems to be barely in it except for that one episode about her and her dad. But by the end she became one of my fave characters. I'm sad to see them all go. I guess Tony and Michelle went their separate ways in the end. And I guess Sid will find Cassie as he always does. But i wish we could all of it.

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous season

Pilot Inspektor: CBS' "Smith"

I may just have to change my original "What I'll Be Watching This Fall" post, as I sat down and finally watched CBS' new crime drama Smith this weekend. (What? It's taken me a long time to make my way through the stack of pilot DVDs.) While it's on following Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights (10 pm ET/PT, to be exact), I'm going to be sure to leave enough room on my TiVo to make sure that I catch this compelling, amoral drama. While one can't help but be impressed by what might just be the most marquee-friendly cast in primetime--Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, Simon Baker, and Franky G all star and Shohreh Aghdashloo has a recurring role--the pilot's premise alone earned major points in my book: it's a crime drama from the point of view of the criminals, who engage in high-stakes heists. But don't be alarmed; it's nothing like NBC's short-lived Heist . Instead, think of it as The Italian
