  • Lying, Cheating, and Stealing

    Posted on 08/22/2011 by Lisa

    SPOILERS BELOW, PEOPLE. Keep reading if you've seen "Drop It Like It's Hot, pt. 1." If you haven't seen it yet, go retake the "How 'Now or Never' Are You?" quiz or something. :)

    Yes, Liam. Hannah is awesome. But she's taken.
    She likes you, Wesley. Don't stress.

    Oh... the things we do for love.

    Wesley -- sweet, honest Wesley! -- is lying to impress Hannah. Dude, she LIKES you. Stop feeling threatened, before you screw it up.

    Alli worked her butt off to earn her parents' respect. So WHY is she cheating at poker to make extra money? To impress Dave. Sigh, sigh, sigh. (And don't get me started on the fact that Dave almost has sex before he's ready. I'm still shaking my head about that one.)

    Bianca is so afraid of Vince that she's willing to deal drugs for him, and when she can't find a buyer, she steals money from Imogen. It's killing me to see her trying so hard to protect Drew, especially since he had no idea it's happening.

    There were some major Now or Never decisions tonight, but were ANY of them good? Which lying-cheaty-stealy mistake do you think is destined to have the worst repercussions?

    p.s. I'm not sure I'm prepared for the rest of "Degrassi: Now or Never." Tonight's ep seemed to be stirring up all sorts of new trouble.

    p.p.s. DO NOT KICK THE VOLLEYBALLS!

  • Degrassi: Hide and Seek pt 2 - Let's Break It Down

    LOOK OUT, SPOILERS BELOW for those who missed out on the awesomeness. (Here's the full ep so you can be like the rest of us.) But if you've seen it, let's get chatty.

    Holly J fell down went boom on Degrassi
    Holly J fell down went boom on Degrassi. She has a boo boo in her kidneys.

    1) It's a good thing I never ran away because I have a feeling I'd fare just about as well as Alli -- I would totally try to ask someone for "Runaway 101" tips and end up getting jacked.

    2) If your parents wanted your whole family to go to therapy together... would you be into it?

    3) UP TOP, WESLEY! What do you guys think of Hannah? And should we call them Wannah? Weslah? I think I like Wannah. Anyway, a round of applause for a sweet guy finding a lovely girl. clap clap clap clap clap

    4) You know what? It's interesting that Holly J didn't try to sabotage Chantay, since they were competing at that work study. It seems like the HJ of even a season ago totally would have. (It's also interesting that so many people out there speculated that Holly J might have diabetes, since it did turn out to be her kidneys... even if she got there in a really roundabout way.)

    5) Also, who else here is guilty of totally trying to put off dealing with being sick because you were like "I don't have TIME to be sick." /me sighs, raises hand.

    This blog has SPOILERS DOWN THERE so don't scroll down 'til you've watched the new episode. You've been warned. If you've already watched... we got some talking to do.


    Alli Bhandari on Degrassi: In Too Deep, Hide and Seek pt. 1

    1) Reading your "yes, I am as stressed as Holly J" comments on yesterday's blog made me so worried! I mean Holly J is a fictional character and I'm worried for her too, but people! You! Real people! Take some serious "100% unscheduled me time" this weekend! It's almost spring and you have to. I am hereby forcing you.

    2) So, remember that scene where Alli was looking at her "facerange" and there was a mix of comments on it, where some people were showing concern and some people were like "I'm glad she's gone," or "the dress code is her fault"? That made me go ruh ruh like a dungeon dragon. They were just like "la la, I'm posting something funny on the Intornets that my friends will click 'like' on" rather than, "la la, a real human being is in so much emotional pain that they have put themselves in danger and I am making fun of it and kicking them while they're down." The internet sucks sometimes.

    But at least some people are nice.

    3) I love that 12 year old Wesley wrote 16 year old Wesley a note. I heard about this site where you can write an email to yourself in the future and it'll deliver it to you on the date you set. (OK... the internet rules sometimes, too.) I'm not gonna link to it right here because on the site, some people choose to make their letters public on the front page, and one I just saw has what we in the biz call "inappropriate language" but if that's ok with you, search the web for "Future Me".

    Anyway, what did the you of four years ago think the you of today was going to be like? And were You of the Past wrong, or right, or somewhere in between?

    4) I can't be the only person who was thinking the whole time "Omgomg what if Holly J is pregnant?" WHEW. Except, eek, 'cause if it's not that... whatever it is doesn't look good, either. What are your guesses about what's up?

    5) "I stood next to a dude that stabbed a guy that everyone LOVED, and then I had to go to that guy's school." - Johnny DiMarco. You know... I never really thought about the fact that going to Degrassi must have been scary as hell for Johnny.

  • We got you a present!

    We at TeenNick wish you Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and Happily Ever After Your Whole Life Long!

    And, good news! We picked your names out of the Secret Santa hat, so here's your prezzie... a new Degrassi poster! It looks like this:

    TeenNick's present for you - a new Degrassi poster!

    Some assembly required... we broke it down into three 8x10 pieces:
    Right-click and save for part 1
    Right-click and save for part 2
    Right-click and save for part 3

    This way you can print those out and put 'em together to make your very own Deg-oration. Oh my God, I just said Deg-oration, clearly I need to stop working and go to Australia. Have a GREAT holiday, enjoy your winter break, I hope it snows only exactly as much as you want it to, and I hope all of your wishes come true forever. Unless you make bad wishes.

    Enjoy your new poster!

    PEACE!

    The 12 Boys of Degrassi

    It's Day 3 of the Degrassi Boys celebration, time to celebrate...

    ♥Wesley♥!

    Anya described Wesley as "the type of guy that girls love." He's super-sweet, he's not fake, and if you win him at a bachelor auction, he'll save up his allowance till he can afford to rent a limo for your date. He's THAT nice.

    My favorite things about Wesley are that he's a really good friend (I still can't believe he forgave Dave after the taser incident) and he's really funny. Exhibit A: His election-themed rap:

    I love this Wesley quote from when Drew's trying to teach him about girls:

    Drew: "If you wanna impress Anya so she'll bid on you at the bachelor auction you're gonna need one thing."
    Wesley: "A bowtie!"

    What are your favorite Wesley moments, quotes, or election-themed rap lyrics? Post them in the comments. And check out our full Wesley Playlist for more chuckle-worthy and cringe-worthy Wesley videos.

    Oh, Wesley. You are proof that a boy can be awkward and awesome at the same time.

  • Degrassi OMG: Wesley's Anya Dream

    Posted on 11/12/2010 by Mary

    Re-watch Wesley's epically awesome (and so very realistic!) dream about Anya, and the very Degrassi moment it led to. In class. Oy vey.

    Classic Degrassi. God bless 'em.

  • Degrassi: Jenna-bear. Honey. Calm down.

    Posted on 11/12/2010 by Mary

    Lordy lordy lordy. Classic Degrassi tonight. SPOILERS AHOY so don't read 'til you've watched -- here's the full Halo, pt. 1 episode for your convenience:

    And now, let's break it down.

    1) Wesley, Wesley, Wesley. Ohhh, Lord. Poor guy. You know what's weird? Basically every single person on the planet goes through puberty, and yet we're somehow still so embarrassed to talk about it -- and even go through it. I mean, not everyone has a wet dream at school but... I bet it's happened to someone, somewhere...

    2) KC, so so not over Jenna. Do you guys think they should get back together? Does he deserve her, after the way he abandoned her?

    3) Dude, Sav is basically the nicest guy in the world. I mean, he's not perfect but, for real, who else would offer to go to a girl-he-hardly-know's prenatal class with her just 'cause she was sad and lonely? You can't blame Jenna for falling for him... even if you can blame her for being an eensy weensy skeensy bit delusional.

    4) Two girls enter; one girl leaves! Who would win in a fight: Holly J, armed with a razor wit, two rolls of crepe paper and a Zeno; or Jenna, armed with sheer ruthlessness, a bottle of prenatal vitamins, and the stick shift from her brother's truck?

  • 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?

  • Behind the Scenes at Degrassi's Halloween Shoot!
