15Skins (US) "Chris" (2011)

Skins Viagra Episode

The MTV remake of cult British show Skins didn't exactly do well when adapted for an American audience.

Whilst many people were already aware of the original, MTV's version largely failed to capture what made the British version a hit with the teen demographic. The series featured all of intimacy and

drug use of the original and as such ran afoul of the Parents Television Council.

The PTC filed a letter to the Department of Justice to investigate the show for child pornography, based on the grounds that there are several of the young actors, especially Jesse Carere in the episode “Chris”, had adult scenes and were under the age of 18.

Nothing came of the case against it and the controversy didn't even boost the disappointing ratings for the show. The series ended up being canceled after the first season.
