You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breaking my heart in two
 'cause I never wanna see you sad girl
Don't be a bad girl

But if you wanna leave, take good care
I hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware

Ooh baby baby it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Ooh baby bay it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, girl



The original singer for this song is Cat Steven, a.k.a. Yusuf Islam.
This version was performed mainly by Mike Bailey from the popular teen drama in UK, Skins at the end of season one.
(He's Sid in the drama)
I've watched most of the first generation episodes (I haven't watch the last two episodes- "Cassie" and "Final Goddbyes").

I do agree that the content of this drama is totally not suitable for Malaysians, and I believe it won't be aired here in the future.
But I believe that we, as adults, can differentiate what is good and bad.

There's something good about the drama, anyway.
It tells the bitter reality that happens to our society, especially to the youth. It explores the theme of dysfunctional family, liquors, drugs,  death, pregnancy, friendship, betrayal and of course, love. (and their wild lifestyle, which I totally disagree.)

It reminds me of the Malaysian drama in 2007, K.A.M.I..
Every episode focus on one main character, and what happens the episode before will be given a slight glimpse to the viewers, but in the point of view of the titular episode character.

There are seven season overall (which they call it 'Series'). The first two series tells the story of the first generation. Once their two years completed, new cast will enter the series as the second generation. And after two years, there will be the next third generation. The seventh series tells the stories of what happened to the first two generation when they're a little bit older and facing the real world as a young adult

Of all the characters, I think I like Tony and Cassie the most. Anthony "Tony" Stonem is the bad guy of the earlier part of the story (and also the hero) but once he lost everything and everyone, he becomes so vulnerable and fragile. As the story progresses, he's getting much much much stronger than before. He is respected in his own way. Besides, I love his hairstyle. It's so cool. Cassandra "Cassie" Ainsworth is a little bit 'mental', yet a happy-go-lucky sweet person. But she's also has her own issues. It's quite hard to believe that the character does actually exist in the real world. She might be the "not really care about other person" type, but I think she's the most emotional character among the main cast. It's just she hides it from other people. The famous line that describes her is from Tony: "She's thin. She's blonde. She says 'Wow!' a lot.".

That's all for now.
Until then, see ya.
