ESPN.com - Page2 - Bill Simmons on Skin.
That reminds me, I was on the phone with one of my buddies this weekend talking about 'Skin.' Has there ever been a show with a shorter shelf life? Wouldn't it have been a much better mini-series? Sure, they're doing the 'Romeo and Juliet' thing, and the DA will be battling the porn czar and stuff. But how much mileage can you get out of that? By episode five, the ads will be like, 'And on a very special Skin, Julia runs away from home again!' If I were them, I would have switched the families and had the daughter's Dad be the district attorney -- this way, Ron Silver could have lured her into the porn business after she dumped his son. But that's just me.Bill also writes about Grady Little too.
