Being a teen isn't nearly as pretty and polished as American TV would have you believe. To get the real deal -- warts and all -- hop over to BBC America and check out "Skins." Seasons One and Two have dealt with a variety of topics including eating disorders, death, drug use, brain damage, attempted suicide, teen pregnancy, homosexualiy and stalkers in often irreverant ways. Eight of the nine members of the original cast won't be around for Season Three meaning there's going to be a whole new set of characters to get attached to. Take note though that the "Suitable for Mature Audiences" warning is an apt one.
