  • How do you rate Drew and Alli as a couple?

    Posted on 08/21/2010 by Mary

    Drew and Alli's photobooth pics from Degrassi They're cute as a button in those photobooth pics, but do you think they can go the distance? Or is somebody about to get their heart broke?

    How long do you think they'll last?

    Assuming you don't think they'll get married and die in each other's arms at ripe old ages, who do you think would dump who and why?

    Do you think Drew makes a good boyfriend?

    Do you think Alli makes a good girlfriend?

    What do you think their couple name is?

    Who would you pair each of them with, if not with each other?

    And do you think Drew had braces, or his teeth are just naturally like that?

    You know, I heard that those are Melinda Shankar's real eyelashes. They are really, truly that long and thick. So amazing.

    OK bye have a good weekend.

    Oh wait, PS, if you want to save a copy of those photobooth pics, you can click on 'em for a larger version. Enjoy.

  • The week in Degrassi: Let's review

    Posted on 08/20/2010 by Mary

    We've only got one more week of total unmitigated Degrassi saturation, and we intend to live it to the fullest. But before we look ahead, let's look back. Alll the way back... to Monday. (And if you want to watch the whole week's shows, they're on tonight at 9 btw. As well as in the Click. As well as on iTunes.)

    Jenna: I keep seeing a lot of comments and tweets about how Jenna "got what she deserved" or that her pregnancy is some kind of punishment for being a "brat" or a boyfriend-stealer. Can we all just take a second to acknowledge the fact that Jenna and KC got pregnant because they had unprotected or poorly-protected sex? And that perfectly nice couples who never stole anyone from anybody, and who volunteer, and who get good grades -- when those couples have unprotected or poorly-protected sex, they can just as easily get pregnant? Pregnancy is a result of sex, not of "goodness" or "badness."

    KC: Umm... he does realize that he can't just decide not to be a father now that Jenna is pregnant, right? If she decides to keep the baby and parent it, he's on the hook for child support if she goes after it. Sayin'. And the money won't make it THAT much easier for Jenna, but it will make things a lot harder for KC.

    Jenna's brother: Sweet guy, right? We like him.

    Riley and Zane: Dude! Zane is like the patientest, sweetest, cutest, nicest, lovingest, warmest, bestest boyfriend in the whole wide world. I wanted to DIE when I heard him scream "Help me!" when Fitz and Owen went after him... it burned my heart. And I love how Riley is going through this process slowly, which I'm guessing is more true to life for people who have a harder time coming out than others, or people who no one "expects" to come out. Look out for some really great Ziley storyline next week... I'm super, super excited about it and yeah, I cried. What else is new.

    Clare and Eli: So, so relieved that Eli didn't actually "kill his girlfriend", and so, so relieved that he found someone as mature as Clare to let him move at his own pace. Me and Lisa were talking this week about how much we admire Clare for not being like "oh, I guess he doesn't like me, I guess I suck, I hate myself, blah blah blah" -- she was like "something is up, and I'm going to find out what it is."

    Can I say something controversial though? I think Ms. Dawes gave her kind of bad advice. The whole "you should find out why he doesn't like you" thing... it turned out to be correct because Clare did need to find out what Eli's deal was. But that's because she had a wealth of evidence that he DID like her. All Dawes heard was "he doesn't like me" and she was like "oh, you should ask him why! So you'll feel better!" WHO wants a list of reasons someone isn't attracted to them or doesn't consider them girlfriend material? That's going to make you feel better? I think I'm more in the "accept and move on" camp. What do you think?

  • It's Degrassi night on The Nightlife!

    Posted on 08/19/2010 by Chairman Nick Cannon

    alttext Don't forget to keep it locked after Degrassi tonight! 'Cause we've got Landon Liboiron (your boy Declan!) in the VIP, and a video from Degrassi super-alumnus Drake.

    Even though Jimmy on Degrassi was before my time here at TeenNick, Drake and I met a long time ago at a Teen Choice Awards show... those were the days. It's a great feeling to see him blowing up now, and an even greater feeling to be able to crank up the video for "Find Your Love" tonight.

    Oh, and my friend T.I. will be there, too. No big thing, just the King of the South. It's like that at The Nightlife.

  • The Final Week of Degrassi: The Boiling Point...

    Posted on 08/19/2010 by Mary

    All's I know about the final week of Degrassi: The Boiling Point (so soon?? I know!!) is:

    1) 'Member that "This school is on lockdown" thingy from the promos. Ooooooh...

    2) E-Clare fans should start doing cardio now so your hearts can handle it.

    3) I saw a picture of Zane smiling an actual not-tortured smile at Riley. My hand to God.

    4) And I saw a picture of Fiona taking a cozy little nap. During what appears to be exams. So that's probably not good.

  • Did Riley just almost kinda sorta come out-ish???

    Posted on 08/19/2010 by Mary

    alttext Riley! If you were a real person and not a figment of some television writers' imaginations, I would HUG YOU WITH ALL OF MY ARMS right now!

    Look how you made Zane almost fully smile! SO proud of you!

    GO ZILEY! Or do you prefer Rane?

    Here's the video, relive the magic.

  • E-Clare's First Kiss

    Posted on 08/18/2010 by Mary

    Sooo... does a kiss performed in service of a school project still count?

    Gauging by the way Clare had to put her hand on her head to hold her brains in after Eli BLEW HER MIND with his lips, I'm guessing yes.

    Click here to relive the moment. And again. Annnd one more time just to make sure.

  • Thursday Night: Uhh... E-Clare isn't on? We guess?

    Posted on 08/18/2010 by Mary

    I'm sooo confused.

    But probably only half as confused as Clare, who actually felt the warm, soft touch of Eli's lips on her own before he went completely bafflingly cold, which, what the hell??

    Anyone? Anyone?

    I guess if he's gonna be baffling, at least he has the decency to look good doing it:

    Eli Godsworthy. Baffling... or bafflingly cute?

  • Wednesday Night: E-Clare. It's on.

    Posted on 08/17/2010 by Mary

    Mmmhmm.

  • K.C. really doesn't "need this" right now?

    Posted on 08/17/2010 by Mary

    Uh... yeah, Kace, Jenna doesn't "need this right now" either. Unbelievable.

    Also, blaming her for being in denial and then basically pretending you can walk away from this?

    Dear Pot: the Kettle called; it wants its black back.

    Watch the scene again and tell us if you just lost as much respect for K.C. as I did.

     

     

  • Tuesday Night: Can K.C. handle this?

    Posted on 08/16/2010 by Mary

    alttext Wow. Jenna and K.C. have a LOT to deal with tomorrow night.

    We all know K.C. is basically a good guy with a good heart who has been a good boyfriend to Jenna (even if he wasn't so fantastic with Clare there at the end).

    But no guy wants this news... not in high school. How do you think he'll handle it?
