Thanks! That little theme is one of the best continuity nods of the show. If you rewatch it, let me know what you think. I feel like I landed pretty hard on Savanya - is it just me? Or is that relationship actually just a problem in hindsight? Hmm.

battlestardidactica:

literally same. and fyi to everyone: after a few very disappointing google image searches, i finally discovered that the iron-on transfers are actually still available via the wayback machine’s archived the-n.com iron-on transfers site, so i don’t know about you but i will definitely be heading to my local t-shirt printing shop this weekend…

also if you are feeling particularly fashion backward you could wear this degrassi-characters-as-pixelated-emojis manny/craig/ashley love triangle t-shirt which really has to be seen to be believed, at least one human being thought someone might actually want to wear that design across their chest, seriously please click on that link

I remember very clearly how they advertised this image as something you could download and iron onto your own t-shirts - mostly because I was so sad that I didn’t have the technology to do it myself.

811: Causing a Commotion

Original U.S. Air Date: 27 February 2009

Everything about this episode is childish and awesome. “Childish” might read as an insult and, yeah, I guess it kinda is, but I have a fondness for stories that capture adolescence in its true terrible form. Sure, I can enjoy the high glamor and thrills of a Pretty Little Liars or a Gossip Girl, there’s definitely a place for that kind of show. The thing about Degrassi that kept bringing me back, though, were those stories that showcased the braces, the dolphin pants, the nebulous morality of youth.

I might be retconning my own life here when I say that it’s this episode that got me through Season 8. It feels true though.

Dinner, anyone? ‪#‎NowImHungry‬ ‪#‎BestThingInTheOffice‬

Omg that mac n cheese must be like 10 years old. Food poisoning?

I wonder who won that contest and if it was truly the ultimate Degrassi experience.

Is that Owen? I forgot what he looked like, and that he ever shared the screen with Imogen.

lucid-bones said: Well, I'm very scared for an episode to come: Jane Says. I want to hear your take on Jane's sexual abuse BUT the first part of the episode's subplot is God awful because of Leia.

I’m just filled with a great swell of pity when I think about Leia, ever since I saw that sneak peak video and the actress seemed so ready to join the cast but she had no idea what was in store for her character (probably because exactly nothing was in store for her). It’s like showing up to work or class and the people that were so excited to meet you are now like, “Um, we don’t have a desk for you… or books or papers or really anything for you to do… I guess you can just sit over here until we figure something out?”

I don’t remember a Leia subplot that isn’t the chronic lying thing - I shudder to think if that’s coming my way soon.



allinom said: Ok so the episode where spinner smokes pot to deal w cancer nausea has been on in Australia and I can't get over how mean Darcy is to Spin when he's high and knocks over the bikes? Like her whole de-evolution (devolution?) into trauma is done in a way that makes it so hard to pity her because it's so unrealistic? And then they go to magic camp which is so dangerous for at risk teens (alone in the woods??) & bam she's fine. It's really gross mis characterisation. It makes me SO GRUMPY

I can’t get over anything about Darcy’s plot. I just… why. Why did they do that. How did an entire group of professional show-makers think that one night in a magic camp would be an appropriate conclusion?

GuuuuuuuuuUUUUUUHHHHHHHH.



Review Preview: 811

This will post on Saturday!

If we hadn’t seen The Shep show these flashes of rudeness before, nearly always accentuated by a shot of Mr. Simpson’s reacting in mute despair, it would’ve seemed like a parody. But he’s been stepping into scenes and spitting out something sexist or mean since the premiere.  Today, it’s another knock at the Gifted class, calling them nerds before recruiting Alli and KC to make a commemorative video in honor of his Principal of the Year Award. It gets worse when he trips over Connor’s new lamp. He talks like a bully and snatches away the lamp, prompting Clare to stand up in Connor’s defense. She sneers that football players get special treatment all the time and The Shep shuts her down with a detention.

Where’s Mr. Simpson throughout all of this? I actually don’t care. The flow of the scene is so well-done that I only noticed his absence when I went back to take screenshots for this review. That’s the difference between a logically sound, character-driven plot and whatever you call whatever happened in 810.
