Nella prima puntata il protagonista assoluto è Tony e tutto gira attorno a lui. Si definiscono il suo personaggio e si iniziano a scoprire i suoi amici e le loro abitudini a partire dalle feste e dalla droga. A tratti ricco di quello humour pungente che contradistingue l’ironia inglese, Skins inizia la sua serie dando un piccolo quadro a 360 gradi della situazione, dei personaggi e delle loro famiglie che caratterizzeranno l’intera serie.
In the first series, episodes followed the pattern of being named after central characters, whom the episode primarily focused on. Accompanying the episode title at the beginning of each episode is a short few second montage of that episode's central character. Episode one, "Tony" is more of an ensemble piece, introducing the characters, format, and themes. Subsequent episodes "Cassie", "Jal", "Chris", "Sid" and "Michelle" focus on specific characters, and "Maxxie and Anwar" was a shared episode between characters whose stories were interlinked. Every episode starts with the eyes of the main character. Episode eight "Effy" also focuses less on its namesake, and more on the central characters' search for her. The series finale is an ensemble piece like the pilot however the DVD makes reference to the title for the episode being Abigail despite her not appearing in the episode at all. At the beginning of this episode, we see the eyes of every character and the episode finishes with a cover of Cat Stevens' Wild World, sung by the main characters, in particular Sid.
