    Look how you made Zane almost fully smile! SO proud of you!

    GO ZILEY! Or do you prefer Rane?

    Here's the video, relive the magic.

  • This Week in Degrassi: Let's Review.

    Posted on 07/30/2010 by Mary

    Friday night = catch up night -- if you missed any eps this week or just want to treat yourself to two hours of uninterrupted, gently-used Degrassi, 9pm et is where it's at. Man, a lot happened this week... Zane trying out for football was only four days ago! So let's review:

    Riley and Zane:Think they'll last? What do you forecast for them?

    Riley: Do you think he'll come out in high school, or wait 'til college?

    Alli: That desperate bid for the social life of her dreams was odd, but... does she actually have a point about needing more friends? Clare is always hyper-busy (and will probably disappear onto Love Island with Eli soon); Dave has a crush on her which is fine but... that can be really hard on a friendship. She might have more in common with Connor and Wesley than she cares to admit, but I can also see how she would want some people around her that she has more in common with. I don't know, what do you guys think?

    Alli and Drew: Can she tame him?

    KC: Are you happy about him reuniting with his mom? What's your take on her?

    Clare and Eli: Squeee! Oh also, I clipped this little snippet from a Degrassi script for you... it's Clare's writing assignment about her parents fighting.

    We need to talk is a line that every kid dreads. But you know what's worse? Waiting for it.

  • OMG: You GO Zane.

    Zane asks Owen if he wants to go shopping for yoga pants. There is nothing more satisfying than watching Zane basically tell Owen that Zane is rubber and Owen is glue, etc. -- except with so much more wit and style.

    (Click here to watch it again.)

    I heart seeing people stand up to homophobia, bullies, and anyone who's hiding their fear beneath a veneer of meanness. Can we clone Zane and unleash him on the world?

    For real, do you know anyone this awesome in real life?

  • Tuesday Night: Will Riley go too far?

    Posted on 07/26/2010 by Mary

    Riley, Riley, Riley... I'm trying so hard not to be upset with you because I KNOW this isn't easy for you -- and for millions of other people in your position -- but boy oh boy do I feel for Zane. How about you guys; are you sympathetic to Riley or frustrated with him?

    And what's your take on Drew at this point... good guy? Not-so-good guy? As for Tuesday night's show... prepare to see Drew, in his Drewniform, making all the Degrassi girls Drewl.

    Also there may or may not be a scene where he is technically not wearing the uniform OR his civvies. Just FYI.

  • Monday night: Um, why is Alli wearing that?

    Posted on 07/23/2010 by Mary

    You saw the promo for next week... but let's start with Monday!

    Why does Zane look sad? What did Riley do now? Dammit Riley!

    And ummm, why is Alli wearing a Spirit Squad uniform from like four seasons ago?

  • Degrassi Breakdown: "In Your Eyes"

    Posted on 05/14/2010 by Mary

    EEEEEEEEE!! Lots to talk about from tonight's episode... though of course, if you haven't watched yet, this whole thing will be SPOILERSSSSSSS so go away! As for the rest of us...

    1) Oh my GOD! When Riley was like, giggling because Anya said "you have a crush on Zane"... I swear It MELTED MY HEART! And then when he and Zane made plans for coffee... was I the only one jumping up and down in my chair going "Riley has a date! Riley has a date!"?

    2) I was so scared he wasn't going to kiss him! And then when he did and he smiled... I don't think we've ever even SEEN Riley's smile before that. I didn't even realize how much I loved him as a character until I felt so overjoyed for him.

    3) Curious... what would happen if (or did happen when) one of the biggest jocks at your school came out?

    4) Clare! Dude! Clare is strong like the Hulk! I almost can't believe she didn't fall for K.C.'s "everything was better when we were together" line. Could you be that strong?

    5) Jenna Middleton: not winning any fans tonight, I'm guessing. I used to try to give her the benefit of the doubt and think she was at least Real and fun, though flawed... but tonight she came off straight up shady, right? I know Jenn a has some fans out there... are any of you having second thoughts about her at this point?
