Degrassi Showdown: Week 1 Wrap-Up
A LOT happened this week, since we had FOUR new episodes of Degrassi. In no particular order, the things and people that made a big impression on me include:
Mike Dallas. By getting Drew drunk and insulting Maya, he didn't make the best first impression on me. I am not a Dallas fan at this point.
The invisible ball. I really liked that "the ball's in your court" scene between Clare and Eli outside of the Torres party. So cute.
Imogen's musical talent. I love that she plays the glasses. I know someone who does that in real life, and it's AMAZING to see live.
The "chicken cutlet." I love Maya. I love her just the way she is, and I'm so glad she made the band, despite that extremely embarrassing moment.
The Krew breakup. It's sad that Drew had to try a few times before Katie really got the point, but I was horrified that Drew basically said, "I'm dumping you, but I need a favor," because he didn't want Katie to tell Bianca they'd had sex. It's seriously uncool to dump someone and ask them for a favor in the same conversation.
Katie & Jake? Bursting into tears during a first kiss seems like a bad sign, but if they actually tried dating, these two might balance each other out in an interesting way. (First, though, Katie needs some time to get over Drew.)
Tristan using Maya's FaceRange page. This was a terrible idea from the start. I can't believe Maya went along with it. Has ANY good relationship EVER started with a lie? Nobody likes lies, people. Don't lie!!
Becky Baker. I respect her for standing up to Eli, but I don't like her vision for Degrassi's drama department.
Eli's experimental casting. I'd probably never go see a high school production of Romeo & Juliet: The Musical, but under Eli's direction, I'm really interested in how the play will turn out.
Cam. He's such a cutie, isn't he? I think Declan's famous eyebrows might finally have some competition. I really like Cam, so I hope he forgives Tristan and Maya for messing with his head.
Drew's brain. Something's wrong in there. Maybe really wrong. I want him to be OK.
What about you? What were your favorite moments from the first four episodes of Degrassi Showdown?
