  • OMG: Dave's pants-less.

    Posted on 08/12/2010 by Lisa

    Hey, what did you think of Dave's attempt to become the Media Immersion class clown? (It kinda made me miss J.T., and I bet I'm not alone.)

    Random personal fact: I have a neon green exercise ball at home that's just like the one Dave leans on in this scene. I'll never look at it the same way again.

    Watch Dave and his flamingo boxers right now.

    Dave has no pants.

  • Do you have questions about what Adam's deal is?

    Posted on 08/12/2010 by Mary

    AdamIt was awesome when Adam told Eli and Clare they could ask him anything about his being transgender, and it helped us all understand a lot. But you might still have questions; unless you've lived it, it can be really hard to understand it.

    Like Adam said to his mom, we don't have to completely understand -- just accept. But a little more understanding never hurt anyone.

    So post your questions in the comments -- you can be as candid as you like, as long as you're respectful -- and we'll pass some along to a real-life transgender person to answer just as candidly. Sound good? Sounds really good to us.

  • Thursday Night: Mrs. Torres vs. Principal Simpson

    Posted on 08/11/2010 by Lisa

    After what happened to Adam (and Drew) on tonight's episode, is Degrassi a safe place for a transgender student? Thursday night, Mrs. Torres meets with Principal Simpson -- and they don't exactly agree about what's best for Adam.

  • Adam and Drew's morning routine

    Tonight's OMG moment is a look at a typical morning for Adam and Drew before they leave for Degrassi. Watch it now.

  • Wednesday Night: Adam's secret

    Posted on 08/11/2010 by Lisa

    I thought it was cute how Adam tried to help Drew get back together with Alli. "Jenna wants to see you in the photobooth." (Sure it's a lie, but just a little, romantic one... and it worked out so well!)

    Adam checks himself out.

    Adam usually stays out of the spotlight while his step-brother gets all the attention, but tonight, that changes in a big way. If you're one of the many fans who's been dying to know Adam's story, YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS tonight's Degrassi.

  • OMG: Watch Drew make a fool of himself.

    Posted on 08/10/2010 by Lisa

    In tonight's OMG moment, Degrassi's self-proclaimed "perfect catch" tries to get a date for the dance. I can't believe Drew thought he could impress anyone with that little hallway routine. (I'm still shaking my head.) Watch the clip right here.

    Drew's got a plan...

    Comments, anyone?

  • Tuesday Night: The Hoedown Throwdown

    Posted on 08/08/2010 by Lisa

    When Drew gave Alli that little speech about the "trial period," did you think he was being too harsh? Alli does seem to add a lot of unnecessary drama to his life, so I get why he's over it.

    Tonight's the school dance, and so far, QB1 doesn't have a date. Do you think ANY girl can make it through his "trial period" in time? If you could set Drew up with anyone from Degrassi, who would you pick?

  • OMG: Holly J and Sav?

    Posted on 08/08/2010 by Lisa

    So, that helium-voiced kiss on last night's Degrassi was kind of awkward, wasn't it?

    I just rewatched that scene, and my dog barked when they kissed, which I interpret to mean he doesn't like them as a couple.

    What do you think? What do your pets think? Click here to watch that scene again.

    BTW, I don't want my dog to affect your judgment, so here's a pic of Holly J and Sav looking super-cute together:

  • How well do Sav and Holly J know each other?

    Posted on 08/08/2010 by Mary

    Ray and Charlotte from Degrassi compete to see who knows whom better.

    Who knows what's gonna happen with their characters Monday night (at 9p et!), but I do know that Ray Ablack and Charlotte Arnold have spent a lot of time around each other at work on Degrassi.

    So I made them play a game... I isolated them and made them answer questions about each other to see how well they know their co-star. Results below:

    HOW WELL DO RAYMOND ABLACK AND CHARLOTTE ARNOLD KNOW EACH OTHER?

    Question 1: Which of these gum flavors do you think Ray/Charlotte would pick: wintergreen, spearmint, cinnamon, strawberry, or bubblegum?

    Charlotte said: I feel like Ray might be a bubblegum kind of guy... ooh, this is tough. I'm so determined to win! Hmm. Strawberry. I'm just gonna go with my gut. Random, strange, strawberry.
    BEEAAH. Correct answer: Spearmint.

    Raymond said: Strawberry?
    BEEAAH. Correct answer: Cinnamon.

    ROUND ONE SCORE: Charlotte 0, Ray 0.

     

    Question 2: What is Ray's/Charlotte's mother's name?

    Charlotte said: Oh my God, oh my God. I doubt he knows my mother's name. I know a lot of Guyanese women go by Bibi? Maybe Bibi? It's not her name! I have no idea.
    DINGDINGDING! Correct!

    Raymond said: Louise.
    DINGDINGDING! Correct!

    ROUND TWO SCORE: Charlotte 1, Ray 1.
    Plus one point for us because now we know that Ray is Guyanese and not South East Asian as commonly believed!

     

    Question 3: What do you think Ray's/Charlotte's favorite pizza toppings are?

    Charlotte said: Meat in general. Meat lovers.
    BEEAAH. Correct answer: mushrooms.

    Raymond said: Pineapple?
    BEEAAH. Correct answer: onions.

    ROUND THREE SCORE: Charlotte 1, Ray 1.

     

    Question 4: What do you think Ray's Charlotte's favorite band or musician is?

    Charlotte said: Protest the Hero.
    DINGDINGDING! Correct.

    Raymond said: The Distillers, or Brody Dalle.
    BEEEAH: Correct answer: Leonard Cohen

    ROUND FOUR SCORE: Charlotte 2, Ray 1

     

    Question 5: What was Ray's/Charlotte's first role?

    Charlotte said: Simba in the Lion King.
    DINGDINGDING! Correct.

    Raymond said: A McDonald's commercial. She was in a Batman toys McDonald's commercial.
    BEEAAH. Correct answer: "My first commerical ever -- a little Degrassi trivia -- was with Jake Goldsbie [TOBY!]. I was 4 years old, he was 5 years old. We're little, I'm strapped in a car seat; it was for Tiger Toys, these little Gameboys, and I was like, "Mommy, i can do it!" But the McDonald's one was the one that Ray saw when he was an infant and still remembers! Aww!

    FINAL SCORE: Charlotte 3, Ray 1

     

    Charlotte is the champion! To celebrate, I'm putting up this picture of Raymond demonstrating the secret handshake he developed with Luke Bilyk (aka Drew Torres) on her -- it ends in a hug, because Ray is adorable.

    Raymond Ablack gives Charlotte Arnold the secret handshake.
