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!!

In Episode 8, Ed found his dream girl and his dream car, but let's talk about what happened next! If you haven't seen the episode, watch it before you read any further. Spoilers below!
While I love Ed's bright yellow car (My car is yellow, too.), I understand that he can't take his dream girl to a fancy dance in a car that reeks. (My car, just for the record, smells nice.) While Ed's plan to break into the mall and cheat at winning the car was pretty sketchy, I loved how he urged his friends to help out for the sake of "future Ed and his stupidly hot wife." Haha. That's a pretty good argument. :)
I am NOT cool with the fact that Ed lied to Phillipa to get her to help, though. She may be dorky and annoying, but um... lots of people are. (*raises hand*) Ed treated her terribly in this episode. When he said that, as an old man, he'd look back on their "filthy treehouse scramble" and regret it, I felt like I was watching her heart break before my eyes. Painful stuff.
After everything Ed put Phillipa through, I think he deserved seeing that same "filthy treehouse scramble" on a giant TV at the mall, but of course, Tammy saw it, too. Tammy, Tammy, Tammy... You can do so much better than Ed! Let's cross our fingers and hope that instead of lowering her standards, Tammy finds someone who lives up to them.
Isn't this a great group photo? I love these kids. I'm going to miss them when SLiDE is over.
BTW, my favorite moment from tonight's episode was when Eva talked to her dad about being adopted, and she said, "Bet you sometimes wish you picked a different crib."
He replied, "We didn't get a choice. We just got lucky." Yup, I totally teared up at that.
Did you have any favorite moments from this episode? Let me know in the comments.
Only TWO MORE EPISODES of SLiDE, YOU GUYS!!! They air Wednesday and Thursday at 10pm et on TeenNick!

Let's talk about the pregnancy test, the tick, and everything else that happened in Episode 6 of SLiDE. If you haven't seen the episode, watch it before you read any further.
Why would a girl carry a positive pregnancy test around in her bag? Oh, right, because she's on a dramatic TV show, and if her bag spills out in front of her friends, it'll stir up all sorts of trouble.
During most of this episode, I felt like Scarlett was acting selfish and manipulative -- but I just remembered that the only reason she pretended the test was hers in the first place was because she'd never seen Eva look so scared. Deep down inside, Scarlett does care about other people! Of course, once she did that huuuuge favor for Eva, she found a way to make it work for her. I felt so bad for Luke when he thought she was pregnant, but I wish he had told Tammy the truth about hooking up with Scarlett right away.
If I were in Tammy's shoes in this episode, I would have freaked out even worse than she did about the Luke/Scarlett thing. I mean, she seemed angry, but... if I found out the guy I liked and one of my best friends had messed around on the couch in my house? I am shaking my head as I type this. Tammy needs a guy who won't hurt her. A nice guy, who's kind of dorky and sweet. (It sounds like I'm describing Ed, but I don't really see them together either... I want her to meet someone new.)
Ed had a rough time in this episode, too. As if it wasn't bad enough that he tried to fight an old man for the bathroom on the ferry (and LOST!), he got a tick bite in the worst possible place. This episode made me oh-so-glad that I'm not a guy -- especially at the very end, with that gross sound effect as the doctor pulled off the tick. Bllllararrrggggh. Poor Ed!
I can't end the post on that note, so let me also say: I loved the old woman who followed them off the ferry because she wanted to go to the music festival. The kids on this show seem pretty wild, but I get the feeling that lady might've been even wilder when she was their age. :)
New episodes of SLiDE air at 10pm et, Monday-Thursday this week. (If you've missed any episodes, get caught up!)

Is Scarlett really a "bad seed from a bad apple," as the principal says? Let's talk about Episode 7! (If you haven't seen it, watch it before you read any further.)
I feel like we got to know Scarlett a lot better in this episode, especially after she decided to move out and try to make it on her own. When she started searching for jobs online, and was looking for things like "personal shopper," I felt a tiny bit bad for her. She's lived such a sheltered, rich-girl life that she's completely out of touch with reality.
Tammy thinks that Scarlett gets everything she wants, but does she really? In this episode, she got her friends to blow off studying, she convinced Tammy's mom to let her move in, and she ended up getting exactly what she wanted from her parents. It's hard to be jealous of her, though, especially after what she walked in on at the hotel!
Did you notice that as soon as Scarlett was out of the picture, the rest of the group all went their separate ways? I'm glad she didn't end up moving back to Melbourne, because this show wouldn't be the same without her.
Lots more SLiDE is coming your way this week: New episodes air at 10pm et Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday! (Go here if you need to get caught up.)

On the latest SLiDe, the gang steal a statue and stir up all sorts of trouble. Watch it here if you haven't seen it.
Here are my favorite moments (and a few random thoughts) from Episode 5. Share yours in the comments.
I love this picture of Luke and Tammy.
Luke and Tammy seem so good together, despite their different attitudes about dating. Tammy wants "an understanding of the person I'm spending time with," but Luke cares more about the hooking up. I loved the scene where Luke tried to act sensitive to impress Tammy, and she saw right through it. My favorite moment from this episode was probably when she took pictures of his sulky face with her phone. Affectionate teasing is the cutest! :)
I'm glad they went with Eva to meet her brother.
I am SO glad Eva had friends with her when she went to meet her brother for the first time. That sounds nervewracking. Luke's family situation seems stressful, too. We've seen Tammy, Scarlett, and Ed's families in previous episodes... maybe lots of family drama is something these characters all have in common? (Or maybe it's something EVERYBODY has in common? Does anyone in the world have a "normal" family? Sometimes I doubt it.)
Yay for swimming in undies!
As someone who loves swimming, I would be shocked if one of my friends had a pool and never bothered to mention it. I totally understood everyone's need to rip off their clothes and jump in Luke's pool right away.
The gang looks for Ed's shoe.
I thought the funniest part of this episode was when Ed confessed his attraction to the lady voice in his dad's GPS system... and then later, his father asked "Have you seen the GPS? It's missing from the car." OH, ED. I totally ship Ed and the GPS, though. Maybe they'll fall in love and have babies with a really good sense of direction. Haha.
Tom the Fireman, lookin' stylish.
Stealing the statue seemed easy compared to how hard they had to work (and how sneaky they had to be) to give it back. Sometimes life is weird like that.
What did you like best about this episode?
