  • Degrassi at the KCAs!

    Posted on 03/24/2010 by Mary

    I am in the mood for sharing. Can we share? Ok. I'll go first:

    I just heard that Sam Earle (K.C.) and Melinda Shankar (Alli) will both be going to the KCAs on Saturday night!

    Ok now you share: Make up a KCA you would give to Sam and Melinda! 'Cause they sure as poop deserve 'em even if they weren't nominated harrumph. Who cares, they don't need no boring old favorite TV actor and actress awards. (I'm gonna give Melinda "Favorite performance of the word 'awesome'." And Sam gets... "Most Believable Cute-Yet-Smart boy.)

  • Uncle Jesse's last name change.

    Posted on 03/21/2010 by Mary

    Did you know Uncle Jesse's last name changes between season 1 and season 2 of Full House? I didn't until I read one of our message board threads... apparently John Stamos wanted it to be more Greek so they changed it from Cochran to Katsopolis.

    If you could change your last name to anything, anything at all... what would it be? ( Points deducted for just using your crush's last name, sorry.) Create your new identity in the comments...

  • Off like a Degrassi prom dress?

    Posted on 03/21/2010 by Mary

    Maybe it's the uniqueness of the night, the fact that everyone smells so darn good, or that little extra leeway on curfew people get... but why does prom night have this air of "let's make this night special, and by special, I mean SPECIAL"? Do you and/or your friends think there's any reason to go further on prom night than you would on any other night?

    (Looks like Anya and Sav might, though I guess there are other factors at work there, too.)

  • Fixing up your friends.

    Posted on 03/20/2010 by Mary

    What do you think, should friends fix friends up? I feel like it can go both ways -- awesome, or a total friendship-changer (for the worse).

    On the pros side:
    - Maybe they'll fall in love and you'll be the one who set them up!
    - They're both so great and so single! They should be together !
    - Maybe you'll get your friend to stop his/her whining about not having a bf/gf! Like a binky!

    On the cons side:
    - Maybe they'll hate each other and you'll be the one who set them up!
    - You are kind of basically telling your friend what you think their "level" is, and... what if they find your opinion not that flattering?
    - Maybe they'll go out for a while, and then it will end horribly, and you will Not Hear the End of It because it will be ALL YOUR FAULT. Like a binky from a hell dimension that will never stay put !

    Holly stepped in poop on What I Like About You when she set Val up with Henry's brother (tonight, 10:30p et)... have you ever stepped in similar poop? Or have you been fixed up by a friend and been like, "really? That's who you think I should be with?" Or have your fix-ups been poop- and insult - free and resulted in decades-long marriages blessed with many many children?

  • Youth ministers: the good, the bad, and the WTH?

    Posted on 03/20/2010 by Mary

    Did anyone see the ep of That '70s Show where Kitty brings in a deeply cringe-worthy youth minister to try to get Eric, Laurie, and Hyde to like church? (It's on tonight at 12:30 am et... you'll be home by then, right?)

    But I know there are some genuinely in-touch youth ministers/pastors/whatevers out there, ones who respect your intelligence and don't talk to you like you're from some sort of alien race whose only communication is through '90s slang, or who are actually even genuinely cool. Aaaaand some genuinely clueless ones who attempt to rap and let's just not go there.

    Have any stories (inspiring or hilarious) about adults trying to talk to you about religion or spirituality that you care to share with the class? Please avail yourself of the comments box.

    I know, right, QV? WE SAW HER FIRST. But whatevs, if you love someone set them free.

  • School Gyrls coming soon!

    Posted on 03/17/2010 by Chairman Nick Cannon

    Chairman Nick Friends! Romans! What's poppin', it's been a minute! A chairman is a busy thing, lemme tell you. My calendar reminders are going off like popcorn kernels. But I wanted to drop in real quick and remind y'all that my girls (...or should I say my gyrls...) the School Gyrls, will be on TeenNick this Friday night at 9p et.

    I'm proud of that movie... it's one of my own special projects. So you'll see me hangin' with those ladies, probing their minds with my incisive questions during the breaks.

    And uh... you've already been told Justin Bieber and Soulja Boy are up in that masterpiece, right? Well, you've been told now. So it's your duty... your responsibility to yourSELF... to make sure your butt is on that couch Friday night. We straight? Good.

    Keep it locked! I miss you, boos! I'll be back soon!

    - Chairman Nick

  • Would you want your uncle at your prom?

    Posted on 03/15/2010 by Lisa

    Is it weird that I feel bad for D.J. from Full House that her Uncle Jesse's band played at her prom and her Aunt Becky was a chaperone? (That episode is on tonight @ 8pm, fyi.) My friend Dan would probably tell me not to feel bad for a fictional character, but I can't help it.

    I feel like D.J. would have a lot more fun with a different band and other chaperones. I'm a pretty private person, though. Maybe I'm overthinking it.

    Would it bother you if your aunt and uncle (or other adult relatives) were hanging out at your prom?

    On a sillier note, my favorite thing about the Prom Night episode is this exchange:
    "Why is D.J. putting perfume on her ears?" - Michelle
    "Must I explain everything? It's so she won't smell like ear sweat." - Stephanie

    Ear sweat. Haha.

  • What's the worst trouble you've ever been in?

    Posted on 03/12/2010 by Mary

    I was just looking at the on-air schedule, as I do on a Friday afternoon from time to time, and I saw this episode title:

    Eric Gets Suspended

    So evocative. So pregnant with meaning. I forget what he got suspended for (That '70s Show, 1:30a et on Friday night), but it made me think of my own wayward youth and the worst trouble I ever got in. I actually can't decide between the two biggies: the time I got in-school suspension for Accessory to Stinkbombing, or the time I got driven home by the cops in the middle of the night when I was 14 and my friend Brian's mom made a finger crucifix at me and said "Curse you, you child of Satan."

    What's the worst trouble you've ever been in? Drop it in the comments.

  • Sav and Anya Bickerson

    Posted on 03/12/2010 by Mary

    Sav and Anya can find pretty much anything to bicker about...or, maybe more accurately, Anya can find anything to pick a fight about with Sav, and Sav can back down and put his tail between his legs on almost any topic.

    Do you know any couples like that? ARE you any couples like that?
