  • Nowhere to Run: Go behind the scenes.

    Posted on 11/17/2011 by Lisa

    Warning: Cuteness! Here's Melinda Shankar (Alli), Luke Bilyk (Drew), Munro Chambers (Eli), Aislinn Paul (Clare), and Justin Kelly (Jake), hanging out on the set of Degrassi: Nowhere to Run.

    I love when they play tortured, emotional characters on Degrassi, but in real life, they all seem so nice.

    Random question: Would you rather hang out with the Degrassi cast -- or their characters? (In a cabin in the woods, of course.)

  • Behind The Scenes on Degrassi Nowhere to Run

    Posted on 11/14/2011 by The-Gaby

    We're a week away from Degrassi Nowhere to Run (THIS Friday @ 9p et!) and do we have a treat for you! In their own words, Munro Chambers, Aislinn Paul and Justin Kelly tell us a little bit of what to expect from the special.

    Here's Munro's bit on what goes on in the cabin:

    PS - Oh and just in case, here's more on Degrassi Nowhere to Run

  • What are your fave Degrassi friendships?

    Posted on 11/13/2011 by Lisa

    Adam and Dave's friendship got off to a rough start, so that makes me love this OMG moment (where Adam asks Dave to look at his chest) even more:

    We're showing six episodes of Degrassi in a row tonight, ending with the episode that scene is from, "U Don't Know, pt. 1."

    I love that Adam and Dave are friends now. Which Degrassi friendships are your current favorites? Adam and Dave? Eli and Fiona? (I love them too!) Katie and Marisol? (They're fun to watch... lots of drama.) Clare and Alli? Others?

    p.s. Lots more OMG moments are right here.

  • OMG, I love Imogen.

    Posted on 11/12/2011 by Lisa

    Whee, it's Nowhere to Run Week! Tonight's Degrassi episodes include Dirt Off Your Shoulder, pt. 1, a.k.a. the episode where Imogen throws herself across the room and into our hearts. This girl makes quite a first impression, doesn't she?

    Watch the scene where she shoves tampons up her nose, right now:

    See that full ep on TeenNick tonight (it's on at 10:30 pm et). In the meantime, OMG your heart out with this playlist of OMG Moments!

    You all had a LOT to say about Imogen when she first showed up at Degrassi. Here are a few of the comments she got back then:

    "I think that imogen is creepy and crazy and needs to get her own life instead of creeping up on other peoples lives..." - maRsHmeLLoW
    "She's freakin crazy but i like that in a sort of strange way." - susu182
    "I kind of like her character... as long as she stays away from Eli. She's making him forget that he ever loved Clare and she's a bad influence on him." - justaperson_8

    How are you feeling about her now?

  • Pictures from Degrassi: Nowhere to Run!

    Posted on 11/11/2011 by Lisa

    Sometimes for work, I have to look through lots of pictures and pick out the cutest ones.

    I found some VERY cute pictures of Aislinn Paul (Clare), Luke Bilyk (Drew), Alicia Josipovic (Bianca) and Munro Chambers (Eli) on the set of Nowhere to Run. Here they are, nice and big.

    Degrassi: Nowhere to Run. Clare at the cabin.
    If Clare's mom marries the cabin's owner, does that mean Clare and the cabin can't date?

    Degrassi: Nowhere to Run. Drew at the cabin.
    Drew looks happy to be at the cabin... at least while it's light out.

    Degrassi: Nowhere to Run. Bianca at the cabin.
    If I had a cabin, I would totally let Bianca visit. (I bet she could protect me from the bears.)

    Degrassi: Nowhere to Run. Eli at the cabin.
    When you're in the country, it's important to always have a farm animal on your shirt. Right, Eli?

    See all that cuteness in action next Friday! Degrassi: Nowhere to Run is coming to TeenNick, Friday, Nov. 18 at 9pm et.

  • Eli's Locker Roll

    Posted on 09/30/2011 by The-Gaby

    A lot of you commented on my last post about Eli's already-classic locker roll. I did some digging and "supplize"!

    Sometimes, a locker roll is all you need to show a friend you care.

  • Degrassi OMG Moments: The B-Sides

    Posted on 09/21/2011 by The-Gaby

    This season has been quite the emotional roller-coaster ride. There were heart-breaks. There were hook ups. There were super-scary-creepy-Vince moments. And then there were those fleeting random moments that add to the Degrassi-ness of it all. This is what I'm talking about...

    "Supplize!"

    Probably one of the most emotional moments of the summer... and K.C. was a total jerk at the time, but when he walked into his own mess with that one-liner, I couldn't help but want that in my vocabulary as soon as possible.


    Mr. Tuxedo Pants

    Fiona: "What's that?"
    Charlie: "Mr. Tuxedo Pants."

    Probably the coolest cat name ever! I'm totally an animal person, so when I saw Mr. Tuxedo Pants, it made me want my own Mr. Tuxedo Pants...maybe even a Mrs. Tuxedo Pants so they can have play dates.

    More bread?

    Let's break this down.

    It's the season finale, we're at prom, and we've got Drew sitting between Bianca and Katie - nothing can be more awkward and intense, right? Wrong. Eli swoops in with unprecedented serving abilities and exclaims, "More breeead?"

    Props to Eli for making this a true Golds-worthy moment.

    What were your favorite Degrassi bits from this season?

  • AAAGH LET'S PROCESS THE FINALE.

    Posted on 09/01/2011 by Mary

    SPOILERS FOR THE LATENIKS. DON'T READ UNTIL YOU'VE DONE YOUR DEGRASSI DUTY AND WATHCHED THE FINALE. NO SERIOUSLY. GO AWAY.

    SO! That happened!

    Uhhhh, where to begin?

    1) How much did it hurt your heart to hear Adam crying out in pain like that? How are you holding up? Let's process our emotions together.

    2) Riley and Zane? Totally getting back together in college. Amiright?

    3) Bianca? With the Drew and the phone and the shaking? OmGGGG. That was one for the ages. Alicia can act her li'l BUTT off.

    4) I'm just gonna come out and say it. What do you think the future prognosis is for Drew and Katie vs. Drew and Bianca?

    5) I'm just gonna come out and say it again. E-Clare? Not done yet? Tender moment? Which Eli didn't even mess up his handling of? Sparkles?

    6) Not to mention uh, I don't know if you happened to see this teaser for what's coming this fall but uh..........

    UHHHHH...................

  • That one time Jake fed Eli a pear.

    Posted on 09/01/2011 by Mary

    So, in this video, Munro Chambers tells us all about his real-life Now or Never moment -- a moment that decided whether or not we would ever see him on Degrassi! -- and then Justin Kelly feeds him a pear.

    You should probably definitely watch it.

    And don't forget! After tonight's Degrassi: Now or Never finale, you only have a few days to catch up on all of the full episodes in HD right here. Because after Labor Day (which, by the way, will also be a 9a to midnight et Degrassi: Now or Never marathon), the full archive comes down.

    So do your eye stretches, get settled, and hit play.

  • Who's crying already?

    Posted on 08/29/2011 by Lisa

    *Raises hand* Things are about to get spoilery, so don't read any further unless you've seen "Take a Bow, pt. 1."

    Eli and Fiona.
    Eli and Fiona, locker leaners.

    It reeeally sucks for Fiona that her closest friends are graduating and that her ex (whom she still maybe-kinda-sorta likes) is seeing someone else. I bet it also feels pretty terrible to buy your ex's painting and then realize a few minutes later that you're going to be sad every time you look at it.

    I cried when Fiona relapsed and called herself "unlovable." She looked so sad and hopeless sitting on the balcony. Someone needs to invent a huggable TV, because I keep wanting to hug mine while I'm watching Degrassi.

    I have to say though... Fiona ISN'T unlovable. She's just sad. She's the kind of sad where you convince yourself that you're unlovable, which might be the worst kind of sad, because you feel like you can't even call your friends -- because you're sure they're not really your friends, because you're unlovable. I hate-hate-hate that downward spiral of sadness. I hate seeing Fiona that sad. I hate the thought of *anyone* feeling that sad.

    Fiona might feel unlovable, but in reality, she's just so sad that she's not thinking clearly. I wish she had picked up the phone when Holly J called. Or I wish she had called Eli (he's been through so much lately, he definitely wouldn't judge her). She could've called her mom, or Declan, or her therapist. I just wish she'd given someone -- anyone -- a chance to be there for her.

    Think Fiona's week will improve? Or will prom and graduation just bring out more sadness? I'm almost afraid to find out.
