  • Degrassi Fan Favorite: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    Posted on 06/14/2013 by Lisa

    This week, we asked fans to vote on Degrassi's best dance episode, and the winner is... Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. We put the full episode online, and it's definitely worth watching.

    Flashback to Eighties Night at Degrassi! There's so much to see in this episode. It includes Jimmy, Spinner, Marco, J.T., Toby, Paige, Liberty, Hazel, Ashley, Terri, Emma, Manny, and lots of other Degrassians, all decked out in their best '80s fashions. (Yes, this is the one where Jimmy dresses up as Michael Jackson.)

    Watch the full episode here:

    Emma and Manny
    "We haven't had this much fun since... well, EVER." - Manny, after sneaking into the seniors' dance.

    Spinner, Paige, and Hazel
    "You are goin' down, homie. I am so pumped. I can nail this." - Spinner, before competing in the dance off.

    Eighties Night is a Degrassi dance to remember... and we also have one to look forward to next week! Don't miss The Time of My Life, an hour-long Degrassi prom and graduation special, Friday, 6/21, at 9pm et / 6pm pt.

  • Dance Academy: The Cutest Pic!

    Posted on 01/29/2013 by Lisa

    Working for TeenNick gives me access to a lot of amazing photos. Check out my pick for the cutest Dance Academy photo from season two:

    Jordan Rodrigues (Christian) from Dance Academy

    Yes. That's Jordan Rodrigues, a.k.a. Christian, feeding a baby kangaroo. MY BRAIN HURTS FROM THE CUTENESS!!

    And just in case that's not cute enough for you, here's my favorite photo of the season two cast. I love them all.

  • Dance Academy: Sending a hug to all the Sammy fans

    Posted on 01/24/2013 by Lisa

    The last few episodes of Dance Academy: Season Two broke my heart, and from what I saw on Twitter, I'm not alone. I'm sending a huuuuge hug to all the Sammy fans out there. (If you don't know why I'm so upset, get caught up on Dance Academy here.)

    I'm rewatching this "Sammy Uncovered" video to remind myself that Tom Green, the guy who plays Sammy, is very much alive. You can even follow him on Twitter.

    I know Sammy's just a TV character (sigh), but I'm still so sad that he's gone. I'm posting a bunch of Sammy pics in his honor:

  • Dance Academy: Hey, Ben Tickle!

    Posted on 01/15/2013 by Lisa

    On Dance Academy, when Tara wanted a new crush, she didn't have to look far -- Ben Tickle (Thomas Lacey) was right in front of her eyes. So what's Thomas Lacey like in person? And how cute does he look in glasses? Watch this video to find out:

    What do you think of Ben so far? Catch up on the show here, and tune in Wednesday at 9pm et to see if he's willing to be more than Tara's crush.

    p.s. "Tickle" is officially my new favorite last name. I'm tempted to change my name to Lisa Tickle.

    Don't you wish all of the world's problems could be solved with dance battles? I know I do (even if I wouldn't win, haha.)
