Its a new 'teen' drama from the UK starts tonight at 10pm on SBS.

Is anyone going to be watching..

Its been critically praised, and you'll find it somewhat different to the American take on Teen life, its confronting and realistic as to what majority of Todays youth get up to, drugs, sex etc etc.

What they "supposedly" get up to, anyway. I swear half the horrific stuff teens apparently get up to these days shocks every teen I know. :shrug: I don't think all this insane drugs/violence/rape/suicide/issues stuff with teens is quite as dramatic as they make it out to be.
I'll give it a go if I remember.

It's actually fairly common, the drug and sex scene is anyway, the rape/suicide issues I don't know about but I know sex and drugs is a huge social issue amongst teens and those in my age bracket.

Might give it a crack if I can remember to. Though i'm sure i'll be dissaproving as I usually am of teen dramas, confronting or not. But as you say Ryan, it might be worth checking out to see the 'British' take on teen sex/drug/etc drama.

Wow. The replacement music was HORRIBLE. Just AWFUL. Only one licensed song remained from the original UK broadcast and that was the final song heard at the party. Even the song that Tony was supposedly "singing" was replaced (as they evidently filmed the scene twice). I'd hate to imagine what they'll replace the finale song with (I won't spoil it for those of you who are yet to watch the rest of the series).

Ugh. I never thought replacement music would have diminished the viewing experience THIS much. Now I've practically lost all incentive to buy the DVD. :|

It sucks that they had an edited version to play.

I looved the Music in the UK version.

It really is quite a good show. I might watch it again :)

Well you're in luck, because next week's episode revolves all around Cassie. ;) And she becomes even more loveable later in the season.

In regard to the music, if they changed only a song or two here and there I wouldn't have minded, but they pretty much butchered the ENTIRE soundtrack. :evil: :(

Poor Cassie is just so strange...god love her.

It really is quite scary to see someone so self destructive and helpless, yet no one seems to notice ;)
