Also to accompany the series, online video diaries were created for the following characters.

6 "Michelle's Video Diary"

7 "Posh Kenneth's Video Diary"

11 "Cassie's Video Diary"

Cassie's therapy video. She likes things that she likes, but she loves everything.

Series 3 (Generation 2)[edit]

The character video diaries functionally replaced Unseen Skins for the third series. A new diary was posted on the E4 website following the broadcast of each episode, and the diary often pertained to the events of that episode.

# Title Main episode

JJ hits the streets of Bristol and posts his 'magic' diary on rateyourmagic. He wants to improve his magician skills.

2 "Naomi's Video Diary" "Cook"

3 "Pandora's Video Diary" "Thomas"

Using Effy's webcam, Pandora sends Thomas a message.

4 "Freddie's Video Diary" "Pandora"

Freddie decides to hijack his sister's Sexxbomb audition tape, with consequences he probably wasn't expecting.

5 "Karen's Video Diary" "Freddie"

Karen's audition for Search for a Sexxbomb.

6 "Cook's Video Diary" "Naomi"

Cook stars in his very own campaign video whilst eating a sandwich, smearing his opponent Naomi Campbell and making some bold claims.

8 "Emily's Video Diary" "Effy"

Emily has a project: getting her neighbours to get it on.

9 "Effy's Video Diary" "Katie and Emily"

Effy sends out messages during a stop in her road trip with Cook via webcam to her brother and mum.

10 "Thomas's Video Diary" "Finale"

Thomas sends his friend Moses (in the Congo) a message about the British people and their wonderful, weird ways. And a song?

The Lost Weeks[edit]

To explain what had happened to each character between series 1 and 2, a series of videos called "The Lost Weeks" were aired exclusively on E4.com. The episodes are as follows:

# Title
1 "Effy's Video Diary"

Tony's sister recorded this in his room when he was in a coma.

2 "Skins Christmas Special"

Seasonal greetings from the Skins gang.

3 "Michelle's Video Diary"

"Black is such a slimming colour."

4 "Sid's Message to Tony"

A very special message from Sid to Tony.

5 "Cassie Hearts Sid"

Cassie posts Sid a message from Scotland.

6 "Posh Kenneth Has a Secret"

"Kenneth has an ode for Jal."

7 "Sid's Bedside Vigil"

Sid visits his best mate Tony.

8 "Anwar's Video Diary"

Anwar's in love. His video diary boldly goes into detail.

9 "Chris' Message to Angie"

Chris wants to show how much he misses Angie, and cares for the Data Protection Act.

10 "Messages to Tony"

Sid had a plan to reach Tony.

Although several of these videos bear the same name as a character video diary they are two separate videos. [3]
