Skins is a plainspoken ode to clandestine parties, first ecstasies, and checkered Vans. And I will shag my own mother, before I let her, or anyone else, take that away from me! All you need to understand Misfits is this quote by Nathan, possibly one of the most interesting characters ever created:. The sex here is frequent, but rarely satisfying. A far cry from Beverly Hills -- or, more recently, Riverdale -- and their well-off heroes, This Is England offers up a punk vision of adolescence, of time spent trying to channel your fury in badly lit alleyways. And everything is focused on having a sense of community -- something that makes adolescence nicer, richer and more everlasting. Sex, love, drugs, drama, rivalries -- all are addressed here with the particular intensity around the teen years. However, Vampire Diaries allows us to revisit the figure of the vampire as a sex symbol, an object of desire for young people as they try to manage their hormonal flux.
