  • Love on the Degrassi Set

    Posted on 01/26/2011 by Mary

    Only 19 days left 'til Valentine's Day (and only 16days 'til Degrassi: In Too Deep premieres)! Let's take a behind-the-scenes look at some Degrassi's heartthrobs' romantic histories -- Mike Lobel's first kiss, Paula Brancati's very committed grade school valentine, and more:

    Today's Degrassi: On the Set playlist has more goodies, too. Such as, Ellie, Marco, and Lauren's last day in "the college house" (and some behind the scenes footy from when Marco and Ellie kissed!); Ray "Sav" Ablack's special backstage intern's tour of Epitome (where Degrassi is made); everyone covered in blood; Shenae's last day; and a stack of other behind the scenes vids. Click here for the whole playlist!

  • Degrassi: Eli and Clare's Epic Hug

    Posted on 11/05/2010 by Mary

    I have to say, I find this scene more romantic, warm, sweet, and loving than any kiss scene. It's just... it's one of THOSE hugs. One of those hugs when you know you just got really, truly closer to a person, by either really allowing yourself to be emotionally vulnerable to them, or by being there for someone who was vulnerable to you.

    Have you ever had one of those hugs?

    E-Clare's relationship makes me really, really happy.

  • Degrassi: Daaaang, St. Clare!

    Posted on 11/05/2010 by Mary

    SPOILLLLLLLARRRSSS inside so don't click 'til you've watched the ep here it is if you need it.) Everyone who's all watched up... let's talk:

    Drew Torres on Degrassi

    * You know, Drew definitely did not do right by Alli at Vegas night, but... I've got to hand it to him for being a pretty great brother. I remember when he first came on and was giving Riley static, it seemed like he was going to be a certain kind of dude, but I guess we know now that he's definitely more complex than that. What's your take on him?

    * When you think about what really had to be going on in Eli's room -- I mean, when someone's a hoarder, it's not just piles of paper and clothes we're talking about, it's like... food wrappers -- could you be as awesome a gf/bf as Clare was to him? I feel like she showed him some seriously mature amounts of unconditional love in this episode, and it warmed my fuzzies. Was anyone out there too grossed out to get over it?

    * Wesley is a nice, nice person. Wesley... you are REALLY nice. Do you guys think Dave deserves the niceness Wes showed him tonight? Would you have been Wes-like in those circumstances?

  • Degrassi: Hmmm... Fiona and Adam?

    Posted on 10/29/2010 by Mary

    1) I've seen people calling them Fadam, but what about Fionadam? Nah, I guess Fadam is better.

    2) I know that when the episodes about Adam being transgender first aired, some of you had questions about whether that means he's straight or gay, so I just wanted to clear up: Adam is straight. He's a guy who likes girls. But, if you're wondering, there are also female-to-male transgender guys who are gay -- they like guys.

    3) Do you think Fiona can handle Adam's different-ness? (I guess Fiona's got different-ness of her own, doesn't she? I guess we all do.)

  • Degrassi: Let's break it down.

    Posted on 10/29/2010 by Mary

    SPOILERS BELOW; watch the ep now if you haven't already. Then let's talk....

    1) It was so hard to watch Clare ask questions like "Why do I have to suffer because they fell out of love?" -- questions that really just don't have any good answer. Did anyone out there with divorced parents feel pangs of recognition watching Clare go through this? What would you tell her if you could talk to her right now?

    2) So very pleased to meet you, Bullfrog and Cece! Are Eli's parents anything like you expected? Also, would you freak out if you found out your bf/gf's ex used to live with them? Like in their room?

    3) Clare and Eli are very different... do you think they're different in good ways, or ways that will pull them apart at some point?

    4) Wow. Adam and Fiona on the steps... that was definitely some bonding going on. Who do you think makes a better boyfriend for Fiona, Drew or Adam?

    5) So, Dave and Wesley. On the one hand... dude, Dave and Alli have so much in common, it's really a wonder they didn't end up together. Why can't people appreciate the friends they have rather than wanting "cooler" ones? On the OTHER hand... you know, Dave has some interests that Wes doesn't. It seems natural that he'd want some other friends, too. I guess the problem is when he tries to replace one with the other, instead of having lots of friends. What did you think of the Dave/Wes dynamic tonight?

  • How do you rate Drew and Alli as a couple?

    Posted on 08/21/2010 by Mary

    Drew and Alli's photobooth pics from Degrassi They're cute as a button in those photobooth pics, but do you think they can go the distance? Or is somebody about to get their heart broke?

    How long do you think they'll last?

    Assuming you don't think they'll get married and die in each other's arms at ripe old ages, who do you think would dump who and why?

    Do you think Drew makes a good boyfriend?

    Do you think Alli makes a good girlfriend?

    What do you think their couple name is?

    Who would you pair each of them with, if not with each other?

    And do you think Drew had braces, or his teeth are just naturally like that?

    You know, I heard that those are Melinda Shankar's real eyelashes. They are really, truly that long and thick. So amazing.

    OK bye have a good weekend.

    Oh wait, PS, if you want to save a copy of those photobooth pics, you can click on 'em for a larger version. Enjoy.

  • E-Clare's First Kiss

    Posted on 08/18/2010 by Mary

    Sooo... does a kiss performed in service of a school project still count?

    Gauging by the way Clare had to put her hand on her head to hold her brains in after Eli BLEW HER MIND with his lips, I'm guessing yes.

    Click here to relive the moment. And again. Annnd one more time just to make sure.

  • Alli gettin' grabby with Drew's butt.

    Posted on 07/29/2010 by Mary

    Would you have said yes to Drew's no-movie, all-make-out-sesh proposal? On the one hand... where's the respect? The romance? The appreciation for all of Alli's lovely qualities? On the other hand... Drew probably gets away with this sort of request a lot.

    Watch the scene again to help you make up your mind. (And btw, if anyone ever needs to blackmail Alli Bhandari, all they need to is send Mr. Bhandari that vid... or perhaps this pic of her grabbing Drew's butt.)

  • Clare and Eli, sittin' in a tree.

    Posted on 07/28/2010 by Mary

    Alllmost k-i-s-s-i-n-g. Sigh.

    Those two loooove each other. This is gonna be good.

    Here, please enjoy this pic of Eli giving Clare his soft-eyed, "I totally and completely dig you" look that would make any girl's heart melt. Probably worth printing out and saving for this fall's locker. That crooked little smile... I die!

    And, you can click it (or here) to watch video of Clare and Eli's fireworks go pshew pshew pshew all over again. (PS yes I know that fireworks go boom and not pshew but these are little fireworks! Little baby fireworks 'cause it's just the beginning!)

    Eli Goldsworthy from Degrassi. Siiiigh.

  • Katy Perry and Russell Brand

    Posted on 06/19/2010 by Mary

    Katy Perry and Russell BrandKaty Perry's "California Gurls" video is on Obsess This this weekend...

    But lately I can't look at her without thinking "Russell Brand." It's like word association. Katy Perry, Russell Brand. I have to say I'm somewhat surprised by their love... do you think they make sense as a couple?
