The Dos and Don’ts of Drama, with Degrassi: Pre-Prom Lacks the Sex and Death of the Real One

The Dos and Don'ts of Drama, with Degrassi: Pre-Prom Lacks the Sex and Death of the Real One

For some reason, in high-school world graduation comes before prom — usually because more interesting shit goes down when characters are in their prom dresses as opposed to caps and gowns. Then again, there were some interesting moments in “Take A Bow” parts 1 and 2. Riley finally comes out to his mom! Owen trains Anya to bulk up for the army (because somehow she signed up without any physical test…?) by screaming at her like a drill sergeant. Katie obsesses over losing her virginity to Drew at prom night. And Fiona wants to start things up again with Charlie, only to get massively disappointed by a misunderstanding involving a life-size portrait of her.

Adam Is Probably Going to Die on Degrassi: Now or Never

Adam Is Probably Going to Die on Degrassi: Now or Never

Degrassi: Now or Never wraps up next week — and as the trailers predicted, there’s going to be a big death at Degrassi’s prom.

Two out of the three plotlines for “Mr. Brightside” parts 1 and 2 were pretty drama-free: Alli had to trust her parents to like Dave for who he really is, and Holly J and Fiona found a way to give Dawn her kidney money. So, mostly happy endings in Degrassi-land. Even Drew and Katie seemed to have a growing flirtation. AND THEN DREW STARTED CAGEFIGHTING. More »

The Dos and Don'ts of Drama, with 'Degrassi': Connor's a Panty Bandit and Anya Fails at College Applications

Degrassi seems determined to hit new heights of creepiness this season, based on the past two episodes “What’s My Age Again?” (great title choice, btw) and “Idioteque”: Anya’s love life swings from older doctor to homphobic bully Owen; Connor steals women’s underwear without realizing how skeevy that is; and don’t even get me started on next week’s promo, where Imogen pretends to be Clare. Ew. But first, let’s go back to Anya’s 18th birthday party, and Drew’s continuing gang troubles. More »
