  • A Whole New Degrassi: Imogen

    Posted on 07/02/2013 by Lisa

    When a whole new Degrassi starts July 11th, Imogen has her eye on someone new.

    Imogen (Cris Prosperi)

    Is Imogen turning into a boyfriend stealer? I loved Fimogen together, because Fiona and Imogen seemed really good for each other. This promo seems to hint that Imogen's rebound could be a more complicated situation. What do you think?

    Degrassi will be on your TV next Thursday, July 11th. (No more waiting until Friday!)

  • Degrassi Wrap-Up: The Time of My Life

    Posted on 06/21/2013 by Lisa

    Have you seen the Degrassi prom and graduation special? If not, watch it here before you read any further. *Spoilers Below*

    Degrassi: The Time of My Life
    A full hour of Degrassi means a double serving of drama, and "The Time of My Life" felt like a big Degrassi-flavored dessert covered in chocolate sauce and sprinkled with nuts. I thought it was soooo good, and it filled me completely full of feelings. Let's talk about it!

    Degrassi: The Time of My Life
    First up: Fiona and Imogen. Wasn't it nice to see Mrs. Coyne in person again, instead of on video chat? I'm glad that we don't have to worry about Fiona's financial situation anymore. (How fast do you think she quit her job at Juwanna Juice after getting the news?) When Fiona's mom told her about the possible dream job in Italy, it seemed like Fiona's life was about as perfect as it could get.

    What was Imogen thinking when she answered Fiona's phone and decided to impersonate her? Well, I guess we all know what she was thinking -- that she'd do anything to avoid losing Fiona. Failing senior year must've been really hard on Imogen, but trying to sabotage Fiona's dreams is NOT the answer. That's one of the most selfish actions I've ever seen on Degrassi. Fimogen are one of my all-time favorite Degrassi couples, so I cried the most at their scenes tonight. When Imogen went to the airport to talk to Federico, and he had to turn away for a moment because he was tearing up, I was like, "I know, Federico!! I know!" I also cried a bunch when Imogen went to apologize to Fiona at the loft, when Fiona gave her speech at graduation, and during that last "farewell" scene. It's hard for me to accept that they're parting ways. How are you handling it?

    Degrassi: The Time of My Life
    Meanwhile... Eli and Clare are back together! The promos hinted that they'd reunite, but it was nice to see it all fall into place. When Eli and Clare were dancing together in their crowns, I realized that if Degrassi were a fairytale, Clare might be the princess. I think I subconsciously wanted her to have a princess-worthy prom night, so I loved seeing Eli treat her like royalty and sweep her away to a candlelit room. I know I'm glossing over a few things (In a fairytale world, they would've won prom king and queen fair and square -- Eli wouldn't have had to rig the vote), but prom night worked out pretty well for Eli and Clare. When Eli took Clare home the next morning in the horse-drawn carriage, I wanted to hug them both.

    If you've read my Degrassi posts in the past, you know I'm very good at worrying about people. Right now I'm worried about the lump on Clare's back. When Alli tried to convince Clare that she doesn't have cancer, I was like "Try harder, Alli! I'm still worried!" The random nosebleed freaked me out. I want Clare to finish high school and graduate and move to New York and share a studio apartment with Eli. I want that happy ending. (I cried typing that, so I guess I'm pretty worried about Clare's lump. Go away, lump.)

    Degrassi: The Time of My Life
    Let's talk about Jake and Mo, and their bromance (or as I like to say, "Momance"). I love-love-love the moment when Jake shows up at prom. When Mo realized that Marisol had paid Jake to be there, I was just as shocked and disappointed as Mo was. I understand why he ended up hanging out with other people, drinking too much, and throwing up all over. When someone tries as hard as Marisol tried to make prom night perfect, I think they're destined to be disappointed. Even if her expectations were way too high, though, nobody deserves to be puked on. (Poor girl.) I'm glad Mo won her over with the song at graduation, but I was even happier when Mo and Jake finally talked about wanting to stay in touch.

    Other moments that will stick with me:

    *The down-to-earth sex advice Alli and Jenna gave Clare.

    *When Principal Simpson started calling the names at graduation, it felt SO real. I think they're all going to miss each other on the show and in reality -- and they know we're going to miss them, too. We've been through so much together.

    *This line from Fiona's speech:
    "Don't be afraid of change, no matter how scary it seems. If I can make it through, so can you."

    I'm gonna miss this cast, but in Fiona's honor, I promise not to be afraid of change. If you're feeling the same way, sneak a peek at some of the new characters in this video!

  • A Red-Hot Peace Offering

    Posted on 08/23/2011 by Lisa

    Bianca + Imogen = BFFs?
    Bianca + Imogen = BFFs?

    A lot of love stuff happened tonight (Dave and Alli... sigh, Wesley and Hannah... yay!), but I want to talk about the way Bianca and Imogen seem to be bonding.

    Despite Bianca's "I never wanted to be your friend!" line, tonight's episode made it pretty clear that she needs someone to confide in. Imogen seems to be holding up alright post-Eli, but she could probably use a friend, too. I didn't see this friendship coming, but in a weird way, it totally works. I can picture Bianca and Imogen still hanging out in twenty years, being like "Hey, remember that red lingerie?" and laughing about it.

    But on the other hand, Bianca is in REAL trouble... and we've seen Imogen do some pretty crazy, unpredictable stuff. Is this friendship destined for disaster? Keep in mind that Imogen threw herself on the floor to protect Eli from getting in trouble. How far would she go to protect Bianca from Vince?

    Meanwhile... it was killing me tonight that there were police everywhere (pulling Wesley over, stopping the poker game), except where the real danger was. Props to Brendan Jeffers, the actor who plays Vince, for creeping me out in a major way during tonight's episode!

    Got any thoughts on this Imogen/Bianca stuff? Do friendships get ship names? What are you calling this one?

    SPOILER WARNING: Don't scroll down unless you've seen "U Don't Know, Pt. 1."

    If you loved Eli and Clare as a couple on Degrassi, how are you holding up this summer? Last week, we had lots of Clare and Jake "cake-out" sessions... and tonight things got pretty steamy during Imogen's audition.

    If you consider yourself an Eclare fan (or ever did), please answer the following questions:

    1.Do you think Eli and Clare will get back together?
    2.How long do you think Clare and Jake will last as a couple? Is Jake a rebound for Clare?
    3.How do you feel about Eli and Imogen's big ole kiss tonight? (He didn't kiss Sadie during her audition.)
    4.Imogen was pretending to be Clare during that kiss. On a scale of 1 to incredibly-freaking-weird, how weird is that?
    5.How will you feel if Eli and Imogen start dating? Do you see it as a rebound thing or do they have real potential?

    I know we've got some really sensitive Degrassi fans out there, so if any of you are having a tough time coping as Eli and Clare kiss other people, I just want you to know that the whole Degrassi community is here to support you. Feel free to discuss your feelings in the blog comments, on the message board, on Facebook, or Twitter. We're here for you.

    p.s. If you've got something to say about Holly J's health situation or the Adam / Katie storyline, feel free to share your thoughts on those, too. (Holly J was trending worldwide on Twitter tonight! Nice job, HJ.)

    Imogen and Eli kiss
    Elmo or Elimogen or Imogeli or whatever you want to call them.

  • What do you think of Imogen?

    Hello, people who've seen Dirt Off Your Shoulder, Pt. 1!

    Do you think Adam's right about Imogen? I mean... "psycho" is a strong word, but what kind of person injures herself just to keep someone she's never spoken to before out of trouble? Imogen seems to have made a real impression on Eli (putting tampons in your nose is a pretty memorable action), but I'm a little worried about the effect she could have on him.

    Eli's going through a rough time, and I feel like he needs to spend time with calm, sane people (like, say... Adam). At the same time, I'm also kind of worried about Imogen. From what we've seen so far, Eli might not be the best influence on her either.

    Meanwhile... Do you think Ziley are headed in a bad direction? What about Kenna? (I can't add anyone else to my worry list tonight -- it's full.)

    And one final Degrassi thought of the night: I've never worked at a restaurant, so I'm not an expert on this, but there didn't appear to be much cleaning going on at that clean up party. If you've ever worked at a place like Little Miss Steaks, do things really get that wild after it closes up for the night? Enlighten me.
