Review – Skins – Rich (S05Ep02)

I'm a Metal Head. That is what I am.

This week:
We follow metal head Richard in his attempt to ask out the “Angel of Death” – who happens to work in the library. Along the way he tests the strength of his beliefs, burn bridges, sees a side of Grace none of us expected and realises he can be himself without having to be someone else to do it.

Grace in the pub.
Grace at the gig.
Richard: Bring on the noise.
Allo’s ridiculous moral compass.
The way Richard interacted with his Dad.
Richard whimping out.
I adored the music (even though I hate death metal – I think that is what it was) every time he looked at someone, walked somewhere – really added to the feeling of the episode.

Only a little bit of Franky (I know, I know).
The golden record.

This was a nice flip side (see what I did there?) to Franky who was hiding her past, and trying hard not to be herself. While I loved last week’s episode, this was classic Skins, and I love this episode for that.
