Remember last summer? When it was warm, and there was no school, and there was a new episode of Degrassi on four nights a week? That was so nice.
Well, it's summer in February this weekend, when all of Degrassi: The Boiling Point (plus this past fall's Degrassis) will air again as we, at long last, reach the end of the Degrassi Every Episode Ever marathon. (Dude. There are a LOT of Degrassi episodes.)
In anticipation, this week we bring you playlists of the OMG Moments those episodes gave us. Such as this classic one from that very first week of The Boiling Point, when Clare told Jenna off in that sunshiney way only Clare could. And also utters one of the best lines ever to grace Degrassi:
"If I wanted KC back, I wouldn't need fake boobs to get him."
Click here to see the whole playlist, and check back every day for more of the OMG-est moments of 2010.
PS. You know what tomorrow is? Tomorrow is officially February. And you know what that means....

I've been posting lots of classic Degrassi photos lately. This batch is semi-recent, but I bet someday we'll look back at them and feel all nostalgic.
So much cuteness. :)

I've been diving around in our Degrassi photo archives to see what I can find, and I put a new batch of pics together.
I like all of these photos, but that one of Clare just kills me! That's from back before she even attended Degrassi... before she met Alli or K.C., and looong before Eli. I love her little braids. :)
Which ones are your favorites?

Happy Friday everyone! Today is the last day we'll be drowning you in classic behind the scenes videos, and friends... this playlist is what we in the business call a smorgasbord of unmitigated awesomeness.
In today's full Degrassi On the Set playlist, you'll see:
- Adamo Ruggiero (Marco) doing his Aubrey Graham (Jimmy, Drake) impression
- Cast members' opinion of which two Degrassi characters should hook up next, who's most like their character in real life, and what makes Degrassi so real
- One of the more detailed explorations of the art of on-screen kisses (and behind the scenes jitters they cause), starring Stacey Farber (Ellie)
- And possibly the most classic Degrassi On the Set video of all time... "So You Think You Can Dance, Degrassi":
Enjoy it. And enjoy your weekend full of Every Degrassi Ever marathon. And enjoy thinking about the fact that two Fridays from tonight at 9p et, you'll be cozied up in front of your TV watching brand new episodes of Degrassi: In Too Deep.
Sometimes life does you a favor, you know?

Make over montage! I want one! Why can't they happen in real life? They're so much quicker than real make overs where you have to keep washing make-up off and changing pants. Changing pants takes so long! Why is life so hard?
So does that mean shooting Clare's make over montage for Degrassi was actually a pain in the butt instead of fun? Nope, looks like it was officially a blast:
There's more behind the scenes footy in today's Degrassi On the Set playlist... such as for instance, Deanna Casaluce freezing her bits off when Alex became "Lextasy"; Ed Robertson from the Barenaked Ladies and Natasha Bedingfield on set (on different days); some bloopers, and more...

Only 19 days left 'til Valentine's Day (and only 16days 'til Degrassi: In Too Deep premieres)! Let's take a behind-the-scenes look at some Degrassi's heartthrobs' romantic histories -- Mike Lobel's first kiss, Paula Brancati's very committed grade school valentine, and more:
Today's Degrassi: On the Set playlist has more goodies, too. Such as, Ellie, Marco, and Lauren's last day in "the college house" (and some behind the scenes footy from when Marco and Ellie kissed!); Ray "Sav" Ablack's special backstage intern's tour of Epitome (where Degrassi is made); everyone covered in blood; Shenae's last day; and a stack of other behind the scenes vids. Click here for the whole playlist!

Gotta love an on-the-set vid that begins with Stacey Farber (aka Ellie) saying "I'm going to puke all over everybody." Who knew being an actor required such an iron stomach and bladder?
We've got lots more peeks behind the scenes at Degrassi in today's playlist... such as a day of goofing off on Degrassi's roof, the cast watching Lakehurst kids descend on "their" school, more from Aubrey Graham, Mike Lobel, Jake Epstein... and fights and drama! Well, fake fights and fake drama. Click here for today's whole list!

I love looking at old Degrassi photos, but I can only call it "work" if I post them in the blog. So here goes...
What are your favorite photos from this batch? I love the top one of J.T., Liberty, and Danny, because they almost look like they should be a band called J.T. and the Van Zandts. Don't they?

Before he was Drake, he was Degrassi's Jimmy. And right after he put the finishing touches on the Comeback Season mixtape, he gave us one of his trademark super-candid interviews about... everything. Uh, his days of wearing Lady Speed Stick, why he's not interested in a "yes man", and the REAL reason he never answers his phone.
Aubs, we miss you to death, and we remain prouder than peacocks of your ongoing world domination. Couldn't happen to a better guy.
