Okay I know, I’ve been a horrible, horrible blogger. What can I say? I’ve been putting all my Degrassi allotted time into our amazing podcast. Degrassi Talks really has been a wonderful experience creating and if you haven’t listened to us yet, then you better click that link and start downloading! I guess my blogging has moved into a more verbal aspect as of late.
But I do like blogging for you all, I feel as if the podcast is definitely a shared space and this blog is all me. So I’m going to try and be diligent with this blog and keep it as updated as I can. I can’t let my readers down like that.
So, without further adieu.. I am going to bring you a recap of the episodes I have missed in the past few months.
GREEK MOTHERS, RAWR.
Don’t worry Ziley, Greek mothers scare the living shit out of me too
Quick rundown: Ziley get caught macking it in Riley’s room when Riley’s Greek mother walks in. Riley’s mom ignores what happens. Riley tries to make it a little more obvious by sprawling issues of “Hunkz” magazine around. Riley’s mom continues to ignore. He brings it up to her face, she freaks the fuck out and forbids Riley to tell his father. Oh and there’s a part where they visit an art museum.
This storyline didn’t deserve the grand total of 3 scenes that it got. One because, anything that involves gay characters everyone automatically loves, me included. So to see one of the storylines that I was looking forward to seeing the most be cut so short was severely disappointing. I feel bad that Riley is TRYING to come out, which is huge leaps from where he was in the first part of the season, but his mom is just not having it. Love the scenes with the “Hunkz” magazine and even the art museum was good too. Nice to see that even though Riley isn’t “cultured” that Zane thinks he’s pretty awesome.
Sadie, you freakishly tall girl
Or Dave is just a midgit, your pick
Quick rundown: Dave asks new girl Sadie out. Turns out she’s a fucking giraffe. Shallow Dave rears his ugly head. And then everyone just turns shallow in the end.
There really wasn’t enough facetime to REALLY give Sadie an opinion. She’s kind of a toss up for me but she definitely put her about 3 steps behind when Sadie/Dave were judging Bianca when she was with Drew. Like who do you think you are judging people like that? Anywho, this plot was cute but of course it couldn’t be a Dave episode if he wasn’t being a shallow asshole. I’m just glad he’s getting some action from someone other than Wesley. PERSONALLY, I think Sadie should be with Wesley but I’m totally biased since I’m on the
Little sisters are the pits
Spencer/Alex team. =D
And yes, we do talk alot about ourselves, so STFU and GTFO
Quick rundown: Alli is swimming in pools and pools of self pity. Sav tries to be there for her but eventually snaps because she can’t get over her issues. Sav gets a new drummer in the form of Drew (and with Voldemort on bass). Alli runs away into the arms of JOHNNY FUCKING DIMARCO. #WINNING
As a little sister myself, I know what it’s like to be the annoying sister that Alli is being. I also know what it’s like to really rely on my older brother when our parents are being major assholes. I think this whole plot was done really well not only because it’s extremely relate-able to me but I think to most sibling dynamics. I thought it was nice of Sav to not snap sooner than he did but not shocked or surprised at all that he did. I feel bad for Alli but I am SUPER SUPER SUPER pumped that Johnny is back! I never really realized how much I loved Johnny up until I started realizing that most of the characters nowadays are annoying as shit. Welcome back Johnny, we’ve missed you.
Alchy Fiona is back at it again
I think Anya has officially passed on her “crazy” torch to FiFi
Quick rundown: Adam and Fiona are officially Fadam. Fiona turns to the drink to make it “easier” to be with Adam. Adam is in denial that her perfect princess is an alchy. Fiona voms. Intervention steps in and Fiona is off to rehab, Lohan style.
I think I was just kidding myself into thinking that I was looking forward to Fadam. I really wasn’t probably because I knew it was just going to be awkward and over in an episode. Which I pretty much nailed on the head. Fiona is clearly a lesbian and in my opinion, that page that Holly J took from Fiona’s diary? SOO not directed toward Adam but towards Holly J. Thanks teennick, for giving away ANOTHER plot in your promos.
As if this shit could really have been avoided..
No seriously, just shoot me in the fucking face
Quick rundown: Complete and utter garbage.
If you’ve heard the podcasts or any of my previous blogs everyone pretty much knows my severe HATRED for anything Kenna. I’ve officially stopped commenting on Kenna in the podcasts because it just turns into an outright raging hatefest. But I just do want to mention that these subplots they’ve been getting have been the most ridiculous plots I have ever seen in Degrassi history. At this point, no one really gives a shit about their pregnancy or KC’s daddy issues or Jenna’s cravings. Just pop the baby out and let us know what happens. I REALLY wonder how Sam Earle must feel to know that his character has gone from being around the top of everyone’s favorite lists to one of THE most annoying characters on the show.
And I throw up in my mouth a little every time Jenna calls KC “Big Daddy”. Ughhhhhhh.
Can Anya stop chasing penis please?
I mean I know it’s great and all..
Quick rundown: Anya’s mom is cancer free! HOORAY! Anya starts dating Dr. Chris who thinks she’s 20. Mother puts a kibosh on the whole relationship.
While I know I said Anya has passed her Crazy Crown over to Fiona, I still think Anya might still have the Crazy Baton in her possession. The one thing that really annoyed me was when Dr. Chris told them that she was cancer free, which is supposed to be happy? But Anya puts on a fucking SAD FACE because she knows she won’t see Dr. Chris anymore. Which makes me think that Anya would rather let her mother have cancer just so she can keep on seeing Dr. Chris. Horrible right? I know, but that’s the feeling that I got from that scene. At this point, Anya just needs to get off the show and live in crazy town aka the Degrassi Bermuda Triangle.
Eclare, the ticking time bomb
There ARE no happily ever afters on Degrassi
Quick rundown: Fitzy’s back but with Jesus on his shoulder. Eli doesn’t want him to come near Clare because he wants to protect her. Clare forgives Fitz but doesn’t want to have anything to do with him. Fitz creepily stops by Clare’s house to basically declare his “connection” with her or whatever. Eli looks like he’s going off the deep end.
I don’t know if it’s just because JEC (and I’m sorry) can’t act for shit or if that was what they were trying to go for but I just cannot tell if Fitz is sincere in the whole Jesus thing. My gut tells me that yeah, he’s reformed but I still just cannot wrap my head around it because it’s just not convincing. And I feel bad that JEC even has scenes with Munro because Munro has SERIOUS acting chops. You know he’s just THAT good when you get chills up your spine because you know Eli is going slightly crazy. Pretty sure this is all lead up to the Julia episode and I really think Eli’s issues are really going to come through.
My GOD I love Eclare <3
And that’s all she wrote kiddos! Like I said I’m definitely going to try and be more productive on the blogging side. This season is closing out to be one of the best yet and there definitely won’t be a shortage of things to blog about!
Until next time <3
