Skins - Effy - February 27th 2010, 04:05 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Did anyone else see the new episode of Skins? What did people think of Effys story with her depression and trying to kill herself?
Parts of it were really too close to home for me at the moment, and I found it hard to watch.
What did you think? like it or hate it?

As much as I love the show, I didn't like this episode that much. I didn't think there was enough signs of her depression apart from her occasionally being upset and depressed-like (if that makes sense) for them to bring it up in this episode without any sort of build up to those events.

yeah i agree, it was a bit sudden. i think they could have built the story line more through the series.

^^ I can see what you're saying but I guess in some ways they did show this. Effy has always been someone who has given the impression that she's hiding something and that even though she's always up for a good time etc is doing it more to cover up how she is really feeling. Or at least that's what I've thought when watching it.

I found the episode quite difficult to watch because of how close to home it was but I thought it was done well. She is definitely a good actress.

It was quite hard for me to watch, it felt like i was watching myself and my boyfriend. I agree that more could be shown but bearing in mind they probably did show more but it probably got cut.

I haven't watched the episode yet but it's been recorded.

It sounds kinda intense and in a way Effy's self destructive behaviour from last series kinda points to her not being so happy. She was always very secretive.

That episode was incredibly triggering in me. As you saw Effy get worse, I saw what everyone else is probably seeing in me. Then the last bit where she tried to kill herself just froze me. and the rest of the night was hard.
I know I shouldn't let something like skins upset me but i'm so easily triggered right now.
