After watching the
trailer commercial for Degrassi: The Next Generation’s ”feature-length movie event,” I have no idea why the gang’s headed to Hollywood or what they’re going to do there, but (a) I’m psyched because old cast members are in it (Craig! Swoon!) (b) Paige trips and falls (bitch had it coming!) and (c) Manny’s hair isn’t hideous (thank goodness!). If you’re asking what this is and why it’s on my Must List this week, you’re clearly uninvited to my sleepover party. But for the uninitiated, check out Jennifer Armstrong’s behind-the-scenes set visit and then get back to me.
I appreciate the teaser and cannot wait until this show airs. But it brings up a host of questions: What will happen if the ‘grassi gang runs into Shenae Grimes (a.k.a. 90210’s Annie Wilson a.k.a. Degrassi’s good Christian girl Darcy Edwards, who’s supposed to be spreading the Word in Africa)? How will Perez Hilton’s attempt at ”acting” stack up against the skills of the show’s actual actors? Will former guest star Kevin Smith drop by? And what issues-packed plot lines will they jam into the supersize episode?
Appreciate the restraint it took not to include an ”aboot” or ”soory” jab at the plucky Canadian teens, then tell me what’s on your Must List this week. List up to three items from current TV/movies/music/books/games/online. Don’t forget your e-mail address, in case we decide to use your submission in the magazine. Deadline is Thursday, Mar. 12 at noon ET.
