Future Live Rewatches #2 - Please Read! :) NOW WATCHING: The Path season 2!

how does this work?
After we decide on a project to (re)watch, we set a date and time for the (re)watch. (This site is quite handy to help figure out what time the scheduled (re)watches are for everyone.) At that specific time, we all meet here on the board and start watching the project at the same time, which'll allow us to discuss things as they happen in the project. We've watched loads of episodes and even some movies like this in the past...and it's always been great fun!

what can we (re)watch?
Pretty much anything, provided it is YA-related and most of us can get our hands on it. While we do try to stick to YA-related movies or one-off appearances of the YA cast on other shows, there are some ongoing shows with a YA cast member in a regular role that we're watching as well.

In addition to this thread, keep an eye out on the individual actor's threads to be up to date on what we're currently watching or thinking about watching next We're always open for suggestions, and there's no strict schedule on which order we should watch things in!

things we've (re)watched together already...
→ all episodes of Young Americans...including the unaired pilot
→ Skins 2x06 (structural/thematic similarities to YA)

I downloaded ep 1 of the domestic remake and i actually went looking to see if i could find a legal opinion on the nature of the show for where it is made. Don't really do that with most any other show i have seen. Not exactly an endearing or good sign for a show to prompt such action. Legally it is legal but Ontario has some generous artistic merit stuff it falls under. I take it that the British show is pretty much the same since noone is saying otherwise.

I guess you can call my disinterest in the show my contradictory contribution.

Orpheus & Eurydice in DC/YA and Skins

References for our live rewatch of Skins s2e6 later today:

-- A quite good whole-episode clip of Skins s2e6 is available on YouTube either here (a restricted video [sex scenes] requiring a YouTube account) or here (same video, unrestricted, no account required).

-- The scene in Dawson's Creek 3/20, "The Longest Day" (May 2000), in which Krudski tells Jen the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, apparently to foreshadow and promote Young Americans as a summer 2000 fill-in for DC, can be viewed here. It's strikingly similar to the opening of Skins s2e6 -- except that Skins 2/6 omits the ending of the story, whereas DC 3/20 does not. One interesting question is why Skins omits it.

-- Comparing YA to Skins, most recent page of this thread.

-- The thread for discussion of Skins s2e6 on the Skins board of this forum is 2x06 [Tony] Episode Discussion. On it, I've posted, in diverse recent posts, the case for my argument that the episode is a dream, as well as references to soundtrack songs and visual props that can enhance viewing.

Jessica,

S1e1 of Skins is deliberately painful: "that from which we are to be redeemed" is of necessity the start of a redemption story. I failed twice to make it past s1e1. My wife (who in the past week has ploughed through 4 seasons and on into the fifth, past me), also hated s1e1 and had to be cajoled past it. So did my elder son -- he stalled for a week after s1e1 but has watched an average of two episodes a week since then. Only my younger son, who started Skins with s3 (the path to hell) last year, didn't dislike s1e1. (It's been almost like all watching YA as a family in summer 2000, with the added advantage that we can all watch, and rewatch, when we wish, and hence discuss better.)

There is a similar, but much briefer, presentation of "that from which we are to be redeemed" in YA, which is also a redemption story (of both Jake and Will, who are, in different ways, Everyman). It's the naked run into the lake (a false baptism introduced by a doubly ironic line, "Gotta love tradition"), the scene in which Scout and Bella quote the first chapter of Segal's Love Story, and the scene in which Will and Scout tell each other lies about misbehaviors that they never committed while walking through the woods in their boxers. Those scenes are painful; there is nothing like them later in the drama. In these scenes of YA, as in the first episode of Skins, sex is dissociated from love. It's "that from which we are to be redeemed" by a love story, and it's kinda gross.

I have to agree with you Finnegan, if it werent for the fact that Anja ket telling me the show was awesome I wouldnt have watched past episode 1, but I decided to give it one more try and I have to say I loved episode 2.

Also Finnegan, we can also invite people from the Skins board to come watch if you want, I already told Nia, if you want post a link on the Skins board, maybe one of them joins us

Orpheus & Eurydice in DC/YA and Skins

Sheida -- Keep at it. In general, Skins s1 and s2 just keep getting better and better. By s1e5, you'll discern the beginnings of the main "first generation" story-line trajectory.

Better you than me, Sheida. You're a moderator. I'm a party-pooping old pedant who has littered the Skins board with strange posts suggesting that Skins has a level of meaning that eludes most of its viewers. But if you're going to invite people who don't know YA to watch Skins s2e6 with us here, you might offer them a link to the comparable "Orpheus and Eurydice" scene from DC 3/20, here.

Everyone else, please note the rewatch reference links I've provided two posts previously on this thread.

Skins 2/6, DC 3/20, and YA: Orpheus and Eurydice as prelude to a dream

Well, it's 4PM here. Ready?

Links to Skins s2e6 on YouTube, to Krudski in DC 3/20, and to prior discussion here.

Skins s2e6 seems to be Tony's dream of going to school to learn to love better. While there, he meets an older version of what he'll be if he doesn't: the solider on the train, and the lecturer at the university, both played by the same actor. And it's all introduced by a reading of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth.

Seems incredibly similar to Young Americans to me, given Krudski's introduction of YA by reciting the Orpheus and Eurydice myth in DC 3/20.
