    Here's a sneak peek at the first scene of Friday night's brand new Degrassi episode.

    I'm keeping my commentary on lockdown for now except to say that I LOVE tomorrow's episode, especially... there's this one scene... which we will talk about after tomorrow night. OK. Shutting up now.

    Here is a picture of something that will happen on this Friday's Degrassi.

    Oh, and look! Another picture of a thing. A Degrassi thing.

    I sure do hope you watch this Friday at 9p et so you'll know that sooo much more happens that I can't tell you about because ruining surprises is no fun for anyone! I sure, sure do.

  • Behind the Scenes at Degrassi's Halloween Shoot!

    Posted on 10/30/2010 by Mary

    Happy Hallo-weekend! Here's a plastic jack-o-lantern's worth of behind the scenes snapshots from Degrassi's Monster Moon shoot. Also, fyi, you can click here to watch all four Monster Moon minis crammed into one.

    Two more vids are coming (they're on TV during the 9pm Degrassi airings, and then online afterwards).

    Oh and check out this cute li'l pic of Munro and Aislinn behind the scenes at the shoot. Awww/ewww.

  • Degrassi: Hmmm... Fiona and Adam?

    Posted on 10/29/2010 by Mary

    1) I've seen people calling them Fadam, but what about Fionadam? Nah, I guess Fadam is better.

    2) I know that when the episodes about Adam being transgender first aired, some of you had questions about whether that means he's straight or gay, so I just wanted to clear up: Adam is straight. He's a guy who likes girls. But, if you're wondering, there are also female-to-male transgender guys who are gay -- they like guys.

    3) Do you think Fiona can handle Adam's different-ness? (I guess Fiona's got different-ness of her own, doesn't she? I guess we all do.)

  • Degrassi: Let's break it down.

    Posted on 10/29/2010 by Mary

    SPOILERS BELOW; watch the ep now if you haven't already. Then let's talk....

    1) It was so hard to watch Clare ask questions like "Why do I have to suffer because they fell out of love?" -- questions that really just don't have any good answer. Did anyone out there with divorced parents feel pangs of recognition watching Clare go through this? What would you tell her if you could talk to her right now?

    2) So very pleased to meet you, Bullfrog and Cece! Are Eli's parents anything like you expected? Also, would you freak out if you found out your bf/gf's ex used to live with them? Like in their room?

    3) Clare and Eli are very different... do you think they're different in good ways, or ways that will pull them apart at some point?

    4) Wow. Adam and Fiona on the steps... that was definitely some bonding going on. Who do you think makes a better boyfriend for Fiona, Drew or Adam?

    5) So, Dave and Wesley. On the one hand... dude, Dave and Alli have so much in common, it's really a wonder they didn't end up together. Why can't people appreciate the friends they have rather than wanting "cooler" ones? On the OTHER hand... you know, Dave has some interests that Wes doesn't. It seems natural that he'd want some other friends, too. I guess the problem is when he tries to replace one with the other, instead of having lots of friends. What did you think of the Dave/Wes dynamic tonight?

  • Tonight's Degrassi and Gigantic songs!

    Posted on 10/29/2010 by Mary

    Here's all the song cues I could find from tonight's new episodes...

    You can hear samples of featured songs from the episodes on the Degrassi and Gigantic show pages, if ya like.

    Kate York music on TeenNick's Gigantic
    • "A Place So Small" by Kate York (that's her on the left)
    • "Better With You" by Five Times August
    • "Dizzy from the Ride" by Alex Roots -- this one, by the way, is the show's theme song. And, fyi, we recently learned that Alex Roots is a Virgo who loves tea, Coco Mademoiselle perfume, Paramore, and tidiness. She says the song "was actually written about how clumsy I am! Everyone who knows me best refers to me as a ditz because you can never trust me to not drop, spill, break or smash something. And as the lyrics in the song say... 'My body's always letting me down'."
     
    Jesse Ruben music on TeenNick's Degrassi
    • "Don't" by Jesse Ruben
    • "Crown Me" by pikihead productions featuring m. deezy
    • "You Ain't Coming By" by Kristen Jones
    • "Kiss Me" by Molly Thomason
    • "Warn Me" by Sports: The Band
    • "I Just Want to Love You" by The Strange Familiar
  • Degrassi Sneak Peek: For Clare, the end is just the beginning.

    Posted on 10/28/2010 by Mary

    Here's the first scene of tomorrow night's heartbreaking Degrassi ep.

    Clare had been waiting for her parents to finally say the words... they're getting divorced. But now that it's official, it feels like it's not even close to the end of the sadness and loss she'll go through.

    To any real life someones out there somewhere who are having a day pretty much exactly like this one... consider yourself hugged. It'll get better, for you and for Clare.

  • Degrassi Halloween Minis!

    Posted on 10/26/2010 by Mary

    'Tis the season! For little tiny chocolate bars, and little tiny Degrassi minis, where our beloved Degrassi characters can "go there" in ways that just would not make sense otherwise.

    Last night we saw the monster moon transform Wesley into Holly J (the horror!). (Vid is over here!)

    And tonight we see Eli fend off the suspiciously overzealous advances of Clare (she's always been the kind of girl who looks for brains in a guy).

    Two more vids are coming (they're on TV during the 9pm Degrassi airings, and then online afterwards).

    Oh and check out this cute li'l pic of Munro and Aislinn behind the scenes at the shoot. Awww/ewww.
