Let's talk about Friday's Degrassi! If you haven't seen "Ray of Light, pt. 1" yet, watch it here. *Spoilers Below*
Friday on Degrassi, Eli went to a party, Maya went on stage, and Connor took Jenna to space. SPACE!
I understand why everyone's worried about Eli. Clare and his other friends are only trying to protect him, but by trying so hard not to upset him, they're only making things even worse for Eli. I appreciated when the psychologist told Eli he doesn't have to talk about it if that's not helpful for him. I wish Eli could've found a way to make it clear to Clare ("clear to Clare," that's fun to say, haha) that what he needed most was a fun date with her. I love Clare, but in this episode, her big concerned eyes were starting to stress me out.
I know Eli really needed a distraction, but MDMA seems like a dumb choice. I wish he could've just gone to the party and painted. I don't care if it sounds dorky -- creative projects always help me feel better. (I understand that the video yearbook is a creative project, too, but that one is so tied up in memories of Cam.) By the way, I saw a lot of Talia hate online after Friday's episode. I don't hate her, but I do wish she hadn't offered Eli drugs. *Sigh*
Will Jake and Katie get back together? I'm thinking no. Marisol's attempt to reunite Jake and Katie made me sigh, too. I think anyone who has ever been a part of an awesome foursome of couple-friends understands the impulse, but the reality is: Eventually, it's gonna end. Crying about it just makes it harder for everyone to move on with their lives.
I don't think Katie's in any shape to be dating anyone right now. What happened in Vegas definitely didn't stay there for her. She seems so messed up over the choices she made on that trip. When she tried to "protect" Maya at Little Miss Steaks, she's lucky that manager guy didn't call the police. She assaulted him! Not cool, Katie.
Meanwhile, Jenna and Connor? I didn't see that one coming (except, you know, in the promos, haha). At first, she looked so reluctant to go on a date with him, but maybe it's good that she had low expectations, because it left room for her to be pleasantly surprised. That date with Connor is one she'll remember forever, and sharing a first kiss in space? Seriously cute. I feel like Jenna has enough life experience to appreciate what Connor has to offer. I hope this actually becomes a thing.
What did you think of this episode?

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.

It's a new year, and that makes me want to dance around the house. If you feel the same, check out these pictures of Christian (Jordan Rodrigues) from Dance Academy for inspiration:
Those moves look a bit too advanced for me, but I love watching Jordan dance. To see him in motion, watch the latest episodes of Dance Academy online. (New episodes return next Wednesday, January 9th.)

SLiDE is over! Did you watch the last episode? (If not, watch it here.) Let's discuss!
I've got some stuff to say about this episode, and I want to hear your thoughts, too. Post them in the comments.
So. First up. I'm curious about the wild-party-craziness that happened between episodes 9 and 10. How did Ed end up waking up on the beach alone? (If anybody out there writes SLiDE fan-fiction, I politely request a story about that night!)
I thought it felt very realistic when Tammy and Scarlett went into the VIP section and realized it was empty and pretty lame. I feel like the letters "VIP" give a place a special, off-limits kind of feel, but rarely live up to those expectations. I think the best moments at rock shows happen in the general admission area. (Also: It was SO GROSS when Luke and Eva got puked on by a VIP stranger.)
When Ed and Luke realize that Tammy slept with both of them in the same night... SO AWKWARD. If I had time, I'd make a little chart of which of these five friends have hooked up with each other -- and it'd be a pretty complex chart!
I'm not sure if a second season of SLiDE will ever get made, but I loved that when Dylan said he was moving away for a job, Luke mentioned needing housemates. These five, living in that house together? That'd be pretty crazy.

As Ed realized after drinking too many energy drinks, insomnia is the wooorst. Let's talk about Episode 9. (Watch it hereif you haven't seen it yet! *Spoilers below.*)
My random comments on this episode follow... Please post yours in the comments!
I wouldn't recommend this to any real-life students I know, but I secretly love that the SLiDE gang had a last-minute pool party at 5am on the day of their biggest final. That just seems like a nice way to start the day. Haha. I freaked out when Luke had a seizure though -- that image will stick in my head for a while. Life tip: If you get in a car accident, it's always a good idea to get checked out by a doctor. (Especially if your head is bleeding!)
Another image that will stick in my head: An over-caffeinated Ed trying to tear apart his little backyard club house with a sledgehammer.
As for the test itself, I was surprised when Luke put Ed's name on his paper. I'm very curious what kind of grade Luke/"Ed" got, since he tried to bet Tammy that he'd beat her. If Luke turns out to be some kind of Shakespeare genius, I will be very impressed. I think Tammy will, too.
I know it's a dorky thing to say, but I hope we find out their grades tonight on the SEASON FINALE of SLiDE! It's at 10pm et!!
