'Skin' Doesn't Show Skin or Promise

No Skin. No Good

MediaLife writer A.J. Livsey doesn't like the new FOX show Skin saying, "The show wouldn't be terrible if the hype hadn't killed its chances before it began. The title does less to capture any envelope-pushing situations and more to address the shallow premise of the drama. Even if the idea is accepted initially, it's unclear how Fox can maintain the storyline beyond the first couple of episodes. Can the Romeo and Juliet conflict persevere for an entire season? How many times can the DA try to bring one company down? It�s unlikely that the story can remain engaging."

Bummer. I was looking forward to watching it. Ron Silver I can do without but Olivia Wilde is an actress I could watch for a while. Of course, I say that witout ever having seen her act. The series premiers tonight at 9PM EST so I'll know soon enough.
