Paige Returns for Season 10!

23 Apr

Even the younger Paige is looking forward to Season 10

Degrassi Nation has learned that Paige Michalchuk is reading through season 10 scripts as recently as a week ago. On her Twitter she tweets “Lovely day @ degrass catchin up w peeps. Snuck a peak at a season 10 (&%!$) script and it is lookin good guys (as are the new cast members!)” It doesn’t specifically mention that she is reading the scripts for business purposes but it does give us a chance to continue the ongoing speculation that Lauren Collins will be in season 10. If she is in next season it would be as a guest appearance.

It is of course viable that she was just at Epitome to see the new cast members and catching up with the old ones. But i honestly don’t see that. IF she comes back, i don’t think it would be good for the show. As we last left her, it was the “Degrassi Goes Hollywood” movie with drama between Marco and Ellie and chances are they will not be back for Season 10 in any role. I say this because if Marco and Ellie don’t return when (or if) Paige returns, the storyline will be as awkward as Marco returning as a teacher. I really hope this story comes to fruition though, i believe that any old cast member returning is a good episode. So lets cross our fingers.

***Scott Paterson (Johnny Dimarco) returned to Epitome Pictures today. (not in season 10 – Graduated)
*** is reporting that “Caitlin Ryan” and “Spike Nelson” are set to star in a new Dramedy

Possible new Season 10 cast member?

6 Apr

So Jessica Tyler, via TwitPic may have given us a huge hint as to who might be the second cast member of four that will appear for season 10 (First being Cory Lee, new teacher to Degrassi). In this picture we see Annie Clark (Fiona), Charlotte Arnold (Holly Jeanette), Jessica Tyler (Jenna) and someone we have not seen before.

Degrassi always likes to give us teasers and this photo isn’t any different. I am sure this is meant to stir up the Season 10 “pot” as we ae left with the “Who the hell is that?” question, but it seems to me that this dude will “get real” this summer.

Breaking up is hard to do [SPOILER ALERT!]

3 Apr

Our collective Degrassi hearts were damaged as we saw the end of Degrassi’s “It” couple Sav and Anya last night as Teen Nick started round two of new Degrassi episodes. It was a really sad moment for everyone as proved by the tweets and comments that came in. Everyone seemed to love the couple together, including me and to see them split was a complete tragedy. With that said, Sav and Anya have broken up and gotten back together many times. I am expecting the same to happen during this season as more drama will unfold. I really like them as a couple, so lets hope they get back together!

The reason they broke up irritated me endlessly. Sav’s reasoning is that he can’t trust her after lieing about using birth control when they had sex in the limo. Sav breaks it off because of that? Are you kidding me? Sav has been truthful the entire relationship. He can’t stand up to his parents and tell them that he doesn’t care what they say about his relationship with Anya, that he will stay with her no matter what. Instead he shows disrespect to Anya by siding with his parents, who have made it very clear that they don’t see a futue in the couple. In “Broken Promises,” Farrah, his arranged marriage partner agreed to go to the spring formal with Peter so that Sav wouldn’t have to reveal Farrah to Anya. Sav is using a double standard in this situation. Why is it fair for Sav to lie numerous times to Anya, but when she gives one lie to Sav, then they split? Typical guy double standard. So what will happen? Is Anya pregnant?, this will definitely get interesting as only a few episodes remain!

As for the episode itself, I really have to disagree with Kary’s Degrassi Blog. He gave the episode a “C-” grading. I actually thought the episode was good. I can’t give any newer episodes an “A” for obvious reasons but i think a “B” would do the episode justice. It kept me interested in the entire episode and that hasn’t happened since Season 7. Anya did an awesome job at the end with her crying scene. It was a phenomenal episode, but its a shame how Teen Nick decided to have the episodes in a sporadic order. Because we won’t see 917 for quite some time seeing as CTV has no plans as of right now to show new episodes and Teen Nick will be a few episodes behind.

****Side note, Congratulations to Judy Jiao (leia) who was accepted in Harvard this week. Wish her good luck!
