  • 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.

  • The Week in Degrassi: Let's Review

    Posted on 08/06/2010 by Mary

    So much Degrassi, so little time to really dig into the details all week! Luckily it's Friday catch-up night... this week's episodes will air again tonight starting at 9p et. Let's talk about what all happened since Monday

    Eli: What is Eli's DEAL? What do you think is going on with him? And do you think Clare is going to get frustrated enough to lose interest? (Not that she's interested. Of course.)

    Holly J and Declan: Buh! Do you think she was right to break up with him? The money thing was interesting -- when people have different amounts of money to mess around with, it can be difficult to figure out a way to hang out that's cool for both of you. Have you ever run into weirdness about money with a friend?

    Sav: What advice would you give him about dealing with his parents totally unrealistic demands -- should he go outright rebellion, or just waiting until college to start being his own person?

    Jenna: It seems to me -- like with the whole Jenna thing , and KC's reaction to it -- that girls are so much more critical of their own and each other's bodies than guys are of girls' bodies. What IS that?

  • OMG: RIP Dolly J??

    Posted on 08/05/2010 by Mary

    Or are they just on a break? Do you think it's permanent?

    Holly seemed kind of over it all... maybe the long distance thing was too much. Or maybe the girls at prep school made Declan forget how independent a girl like Holly J is, and he crossed some lines.

    Your thoughts? Here's the scene again, if you are a glutton for waterworks...

    ...and here's a pic of them in happier times.

  • Thursday Night: Look Who's Back!!

    Posted on 08/04/2010 by Mary

    HMM. Surprise visit! Interesting!

    Do you guys think he cheated? Think he and Holly J will stay broken up or stay on the love train (or at least the LDR train)?

  • Poor Eli's Nards.

    Posted on 08/04/2010 by Mary

    Eli from Degrassi, post nard-kick. I don't know if our dude friends are going to be all that stoked that we isolated this clip... but it definitely made us go "Oh my GOD" when it happened.

    Anyway, do you think Clare is right that the more Eli tries to even the score, the worse it's going to get? Or do you think he should keep fighting back?

  • Jenna's body is a wonderland.

    Posted on 08/03/2010 by Mary

    After Jenna got all high and mighty on Clare for "resorting to surgery" to change her appearance, I found it kinda surprising that she resorted to anal leakage. But! Either way, I'm really glad that KC set her straight about how beautiful she is, exactly as she is. And I'm glad he had the good sense not to make any "squirt" jokes.

    Boys take note: giving your girlfriend compliments is a very good thing. And KC fans... enjoy reliving this moment.

  • PORCELINA!

    Posted on 08/03/2010 by Mary

    I want a pig! I want a pig just like Porcelina but I'm going to name mine Ponyboy! And I want to re-enroll in school so I can bring my pig to class in my bag! And I'll put a little chef's hat on him, and I'll feed him little treats while he goes grunt grunt grunt and I'll hold him and pet him and never let him go! Basically, squeee. Literally.

  • Wednesday Night: Fitz vs. Eli

    Posted on 08/03/2010 by Mary

    Can we talk about Sav's parents? Because they make me really, really mad. I remember having arguments like that with my parents and it was so frustrating. I wonder if Sav is going to go INSANE with the freedom once he moves out of his parents' place? Does anyone out there have parents like the Bhandaris?

    Anyway, as for tomorrow night... someone requested pics of Fitz, so here's a double-dip for you.. Fitz AND Eli. Looking saucy, and like neither of them is up to any good on tomorrow night's episode.

    Fitz and Eli from Degrassi, up to no good whatsoever.

  • I heart Chantay.

    Posted on 08/02/2010 by Mary

    Yeah, I laughed out loud when she did that little "Anyway!" after telling Bianca off tonight. How can someone be simultaneously so cheerful and positive, and so not-to-be-trifled with?

    Do you like Chantay, or not really?
