If my cable box does not come in time for the U.S. Degrassi season premiere, I will cry.

That said, the fans have definitely mobilized this year. Lots more sites and discussions happening. It's so refreshing.

I know the show has been featured in this month's Teen People and Entertainment Weekly. I have yet to buy the magainzes (dear me, I'm so lame), but I found some TP scans/teases on this site. You just have to scroll down to view. Crap quality EW pics can be found here

A few more high quality solo/couple pictures. Thank God Spinner shaved that head. Of course, the official Canadien site has the best screen caps. They are all so damn old. I need a complete icon overhaul!

Finally, a pretty decent collection of links for your own amusement, lol.

P.S. Mmmmhmmm. Showing some skin I see. Why I feel like their mother is beyond me.

Even though the N network makes it very hard to be a fan what with halting seasons for SIX MONTHS and scrambling episodes, every time I watch I fall in love all over again.

So far, three episodes of the second half of S3 have aired, and my absolute favorite was the Detention. Loved the Breakfast Club spoof (I think it's a prerequisite for all teen shows) and I loved that we saw more complex, honest sides to Hazel and Ellie and that Sean and Toby and Jimmy were such passive-agressive, endearingly cocky and dorky boys. Oh, high school. This show makes me want to go back. Almost.

Of course, we ended on a sour note with Terri and the psycho boyfriend and the hospital (does she die? I don't care about spoilers at this point), but Spinner and Paige were a nice balance to the melodrama. I just dig them together. They were such stereotypes at the start of the series, and now they complement each other so well. Spinner lashing out and then worrying about his aggression and Paige being so self-righteous and then compassionate. So cute!

I need more. Nownownownow! Please tell me Emma does not get wasted on Chris? She needs to be with Craig dammit! And that JT and Manny date because I've been rooting for them for forever.

Dear Lord, I am such a teenie, but I don't care! This show is so perfectly shallow and serious and fun and earnest. In a word: Ntense. Yes, feel free to point and laugh. I have embraced my lameness.

Moving onto pictures because hotdamn, the cast has grown quite a bit.Collapse )

And really? How freakin sad is it that I am bummed because none of us is eligible to enter the sweepstakes! I want a walk-on role dammit!!!

OK. The withdrawals are intense. I can't even stomach another re-run, though DVD's will be available soon enough:

We're getting all three seasons and Canada is only getting one, but seeing that the U.S. is SIX MONTHS BEHIND S4, I really can't get too excited about that.

Is the N network gonna give us the crack in May? Is that date still accurate?

Anyone wanna offer up some spoilers? Anyone at all???

It seems as if it was a Breakfast Club Degrassi in Canada this week...

at least according to the journals.Collapse )

Since there was a new episode aired in Canada *ignoring pangs of jealousy* I just checked to see if the character journals have been updated over at the official site. It seems that some of the characters have shared their drama. Yay!

Here they are...Collapse )

There you go. I want to see!!! I'll settle for a good recap...

Ok, this won't make too much sense to the Candians on board, but dude, I'm so freaking annoyed with the commercials for the Valentine's Day marathon on The N. Manny the manstealer? I hate that classification. No man can be "stole" if he doesn't WANT to be with the other girl. I just hate that. There isn't even a term called "womanstealer"... SEXISM!

Funny Degrassi quiz. Even funnier if you view all possible results. I got Spinner on purpose.

Also, a few icons. I swear, I have not found one high-quality fan site yet. Most frustrating.

I thought this might be of interest.

I am a victim of cable loss. I've only seen two episodes of DeGrassi, but I've been hooked. What have I been missing?
