  • “The E4 show, which premiered a decade ago today, made Britain’s teenage parties look sexy, sweaty, and confident in a way TV had never really attempted before, let alone succeeded in doing. … Naturally, out of that first season came the phenomenon of “Skins parties”—house parties that aspired to be every bit as nasty as those on the show and in its ads: an American Apparel look-book made flesh, with just as much nudity, lots more vodka, and a fist full of pills.”
