Degrassi: In Too Deep — Anatomy of Two BRAND NEW Promos!

REJOICE, DEGRASSI FANS!¬† THE NEW PROMOS ARE FINALLY HERE! ūüôā

Last night, Teen Nick aired two much anticipated trailers for Degrassi‘s upcoming new season, entitled In Too Deep, which is set to¬†premiere on¬†February 11th at 9 p.m.¬† The first trailer was relatively short (lasting only about 30 seconds).¬†¬† However, it was comprised almost entirely of NEW footage, never before seen by Degrassi fans . . .

The second trailer was double the length of the first (clocking in at about 1 minute, 30 seconds), and was an amalgamation of scenes from the first trailer, scenes from the trailer that¬†Teen Nick aired last season, and some extra “bonus” scenes . . .

So, now that you’ve seen them, let’s discuss what we’ve learned.¬† Shall we?

Fadam is ON! / Fiona is still drinking. / Fiona may be gay (and into Holly J)?

When we last left our favorite (and only)¬†transgendered Degrassi student, Adam Torres, he was putting some major effort into wooing the object of his affections, Fiona Coyne.¬† He even went so far as to throw a genuine New York-style ball, fit for a Princess, in her honor.¬† However, up until this point, Fiona’s feelings for Adam have shown little evidence of venturing beyond the platonic.¬† She might be aware of Adam’s attraction to her, but she hasn’t done much to show that she reciprocates those feelings.¬† In fact, she BAILED on the party he threw for her — a major NO-NO, in Relationship World.

But if the promos we’ve seen for next season are any indication, all of that is about to change, BIG TIME . . .

Though Fiona and Adam’s first kiss may be the result of a drunken (at least on Fiona’s part) game of Truth or Dare (as suggested in the first promo), clearly their relationship extends far beyond this “momentary indiscretion,” as the season progresses.¬† We know, from last season’s promos (plus, many of those¬†scenes¬†were repeated in the new trailers), that Fiona and Adam (or Fadam, as the cool kids like to call them) engage in a full on, Horizontal Couch Makeout Session, later on in the season.¬† And it is this couch session that Holly J. unceremoniously interrupts.¬†

Sounds great, right? 

Well . . . maybe not . . .

When we first watched the earlier promos, many of us Degrassi fans speculated as to the “logistics” of Fiona’s and Adam’s relationship.¬† Specifically, we wondered how¬†Fiona would react, when she learned¬† that Adam was born female (and still has lady parts).¬† Based on the promos we saw last night, Fiona’s knowledge regarding Adam’s trangender status doesn’t seem to be¬†the issue . . .

Both promos feature Fiona telling Adam that “drinking makes it easier to be with [him].”

This line suggests three things: (1) that Fiona is still abusing alcohol; (2) that she is aware that Adam is transgendered; and (3) while that knowledge has not caused her to stop seeing him, it still makes her feel at least somewhat uncomfortable.

But here’s the REAL twist . . .

Could Fiona actually be a lesbian?¬† Is she merely using Adam to “safely” evaluate her attraction to people of the same sex, while secretly vying for her bestie, Holly J?¬† This would be an interesting plot development indeed!

Sound crazy and completely out of left field¬†to you?¬† Here’s¬†my take on why this might be a real possibility . . .

For starters, Fiona has always been someone for whom relationships seemed more about status and convenience, than about genuine attraction.  She briefly dated Riley (before he was officially out of the closet) because she thought he was a nice guy who would keep her away from the advances of douchebags.  The fact that Riley was gay, and would likely never want to be intimate with her, almost seemed like an added bonus, as far as Fiona was concerned.

Fiona dated the ultimatey abusive Bastard Bobby, back in New York, because he was rich, popular, and had the right family name. 

She hooked up with her brother Declan (INCEST!¬† GROSSSSSS!) , because she worried that she was losing him (He was her only friend, at the time,)¬†to Holly J.¬† So,¬†she assumed¬†that, by being DISGUSTING, she¬†¬†could scare her brother’s boyfriend away . . .

So, we’ve never actually seen Fiona exhibit feelings of attraction for a man of the opposite sex.¬† And, based on the promos,¬†she does seem more open to beginning a relationship with a transgendered male, than most heterosexual women her age, and¬†in her situation, probably would be.¬† In conclusion, what initially might have¬†seemed like a bizarre “out-of-character” plot twist the Degrassi writers inserted into their story to appeal to¬†a considerable¬†fanbase of¬†“Dudes Who LOVE HOT LESBIANS,” makes more and more sense to me, the more I continue to think about it . . .

As for Holly J. . . .

Apart from her scenes with Fiona and Adam, we really don’t get to see all that much of her in these new promos.¬† However, the above shot, seems to suggest that she gets injured at some point during this season.¬† She may even end up in the hospital, as a result of said injuries?¬† (Based on the white background, behind Holly J., I thought she might be laying on a hospital bed in the picture above.)

Could Holly have somehow been involved in the EPIC CAR ACCIDENT to which all the Degrassi spoilers keep referring?  And, if so, why did the hospital choose to cope with injuries, by merely pasting a cheap bandaid over them?  (Random Canadian Hospital FAIL!)

Ali gets in trouble again. /  She runs away from home, is robbed, and wears an UGLY wig?

When Alli told her parents that she wanted to be transferred to private school, she never expected that they would ship her off to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Although we didn’t learn too much more about Alli’s predicament than we had already deduced from previous promos, these new trailers helped us fill in a few of the blanks as to what actually happens to Alli during this season.¬† First, we see her at home, in her school uniform, complaining, that while she tries to be “good,” bad things continue to happen to her . . .

Combine this scene, with the one from the earlier promo, in which she is arguing was Sav (“You are ruining MY life,” he screams at her.) and you can deduce that Ali got into some trouble at her All-Girls private school, and shamed the family, as a result.¬† She may have even been EXPELLED from that school.¬† After all, we do see Alli later on in the promo, talking to Clare, at what appears to be a Degrassi Dance . . .

There is no way of knowing for certain whether this “Dance Scene” comes before or after Alli runs away from home.¬† But we do know that she’s on the run at some point during the series, and is away from home long enough to be declared a Missing Person . . .

This information is all but spelled out for us, when we see Alli at home, threatening to run away . . .

We then see her out in the street dressed in that RIDICULOUS OUTFIT, ripping down Missing Person posters of herself . . .

I didn’t know Lindsay Lohan was on Degrassi!

After that,¬†Alli gets mugged by some lowlife, who steals her purse and runs away (probably, because he thought she was Lindsay Lohan, and that he could see the purse on Ebay for some serious dough.¬† He was probably super disappointed, when he found out that the purse he stole belonged instead¬†to “some chick from Degrassi”).

Then, finally, Alli’s dad, and Sav go out searching for her in the family¬†car, during a rainstorm.¬† Presumably, they find her, and bring her back home¬† .. . just¬†in time for the Degrassi Dance!

YIPPEE!

And now for the storyline, you’ve all been waiting for . . .

Eli flips out. /¬† He becomes super possessive of Clare.¬† / She dumps him.¬† / And he gets into a car accident on the anniversary of his dead girlfriend’s death?

Of all Degrassi’s upcoming season storylines, I’d say Eli’s and Clare’s is the one about which fans are the most excited.¬† And why not?¬† After all, the Degrassi: In Too Deep Season finale is set to air on April 22, 2011, precisely two years (maybe one in Degrassi world), since the tragic and untimely death of Eli’s former girlfriend, Julia, who was hit by a car.

I know that, in real life, this is the picture of a model in a bad¬†black wig.¬† And yet,¬†“Dead Julia”¬†still gives me the creeps every time I look at her . . . kind of like that Freaky Chick from The Ring movies . . .

To add fuel to the Eclare fire, Degrassi Writer/Producer Stephen has publicly admitted that the Eli/Clare/Dead Julie saga will be featured prominently in the latter episodes of the season.¬† He also teased that something will happen to a creepy “picture” of Julia, and that Eli is in that picture as well.¬† Speculation as to what Sohn meant by this cryptic statement¬†has ranged widely from the literal (a picture of Eli and Julia is stolen during the finale) to the practical (Eli accidentally ran Julia over with his car), to the outright BIZARRE (“Julia” is actually Eli in a black wig, a la Psycho)

This¬†eye-catching shot from the extended promo seems to show a bereft, and tear-stricken¬†Eli clutching Julia’s picture while standing next to his trusty hearse Morty.¬† The question is, where the heck is he?¬† The library?¬† (There are shelves of books shown behind the car); His garage? (Where else do you put a car indoors?)¬† Degrassi High?¬† (Did he DRIVE THE CAR INTO THE SCHOOL?)

In the promos, we see that things between Eli and Clare aren’t nearly as rosy as they were last season — back¬†when the pair bonded over Eli’s hoarding issues, and Eli helped Clare cope with her parents’ impending¬†separation.

Suddenly, Clare is talking about “taking a break” and “needing space” from Eli.¬† This is an unusual turn of events, especially considering that in previous episodes, it was Clare, who seemed the more “clingy” of the couple, while Eli was a bit more standoffish, and constantly required time alone to “sort things out.”

“Could someone tell me when exactly I became the GIRL in this relationship?”

Now, suddenly, Eli never seems to want Clare to leave his side . . .

Whenever they are together, he constantly has his arm wrapped around her protectively, as if he is afraid that if he lets go, she will get run over by a carhe will lose her forever . . .

The usually adorable Eli is suddenly saying creepy lines like the guys in the Lifetime movies do . . . right before they go after their girlfriend with a hatchet.¬† (“If I can’t have you, NO ONE CAN!”)

“You promised me you’d never leave me,” he tells her in one scene.

“We need some time ALONE together . . . just you and me,” he says to her in another.

It seems obvious that, as the date on the calendar creeps closer and closer to the anniversary of Julia’s death, Eli is becoming more unhinged.¬† He copes with these feelings, by sticking close to Clare, the only¬†person who¬†has the power¬†him feel safe.¬†

But Clare almost makes¬†Eli nervous.¬† After all,¬†Eli presumably¬†felt “safe” with his last girlfriend too, and look what happened to her!¬† So, just like Eli “hoarded” random¬†objects in his room, to preserve Julia’s memory, he is, in essence, “hoarding” Clare now, to keep her out of harms way.

But Clare isn’t an old notebook, or smelly shoe.¬† She’s a person, who needs her own space.¬† Clare confides this in Alli at the school dance.¬† So,¬†Alli suggests that Clare be honest with Eli about how she’s feeling . . .

Ummm . . . Clare?  1993 called . . . And they would really like that lipstick back!  (Seriously, why does the wardrobe department always insist on dressing this character like a 43-year old Soccer Mom?)

But was this¬†the right advice?¬† In both of the promos, we see Clare confronting Eli, frustratedly telling her boyfriend that he is “suffocating her.”

Needless to say, Eli does not take this accusation (or possibly being dumped?) very well.  In the final scenes of both of the above trailers, we see Eli driving his car recklessly into the night, with tears streaming down his face . . .

Though a clearly anguished and incredibly guilty feeling Clare, calls Eli repeatedly on his cell phone, begging him to answer her, we can see that he does not do so . . .

Could THESE be scenes from April 22nd’s Season Finale, entitled “Drop the World?”¬† Could this be the Massive Car Crash Degrassi spoilers have been teasing us about since last year?¬† Is Julia’s picture in the car with Eli, while he’s driving?¬† Could Eli’s reckless driving, be construed as a suicide attempt, as a result of guilt over his girlfriend’s¬†death?

I guess we will just have to wait until February 11th to find out.¬† (But until then, speculations and spoilers are always welcome in the comment section, and would be much appreciated. ūüôā )

“What happens at Vegas Night . . .” – A Recap of The Season Finale of Degrassi’s The Boiling Point

So, you peed your pants at the end of the episode.¬† So WHAT?¬† You’re still pretty cool in my book . . .

If you’re like me, you’ve probably been following Degrassi’s The Boiling Point on¬†Teen Nick this summer.¬† And if you HAVE been following the show, you know that it’s season finale, entitled “All Falls Down,”¬†aired tonight.¬† Although the final episode didn’t push the envelope quite¬†as far as I would have liked, I thought it was a fitting end to a surprisingly well-written, and enjoyable season.¬†

Sure, it got off to a rather slow and awkward start . . .

“I don’t really know you that well.¬† But you and I are both getting too old to be on this show.¬† So, what do you say we get married, and ride off into the sunset together?”

 . . . but somewhere around the halfway point, the show really hit its stride.  And, before I knew it, I was hooked . . .

First transgender teen character on television?  AWESOME!

So without further adieu, let’s take a look back on how it all ended, shall we?

Sav and Holly J. РReduce, Reuse, Recycle

*playing guitar and singing off key*¬† “You’re my one, my only . . .¬† [Insert your name here].”

Remember a couple of seasons ago when Sav was dating Anya . . .

¬†. . . and she was mad at him, because he wouldn’t introduce her to his parents (even though they had been dating for six months), because she wasn’t a Muslim?¬† No?¬† Well, it happened.¬† And to make it up to Anya, Sav serenaded her with the cheesiest, most ear-splittingly bad¬†song, EVER!¬† And it worked!¬† Why?¬† Because Sav is such a STUD MUFFIN¬†. . .obviously.

Well . . . now, Sav and Anya are splitsville . . .

¬†. . . and Sav has started making goo goo eyes, at Anya’s once B.F.F., Holly J . . .¬†

 . . . who . . . up until a few episodes ago . . . was swapping spit with THIS GUY . . .

 .  . . who once made out with his SISTER . . .

 .  . . who looks like THIS . . .

Hair: The Musical called . . . they want that outfit back . . .

 . . . and is currently best friends with Holly J.

But I digress . . . so Holly J. and Sav are sort of / kind of together.¬† And¬†at Vegas Night, Sav shows his affection for Holly J. by . . . you guessed it . . . SINGING A CRAPPY SONG to her in front of the entire student body .¬† . . a song that sounds suspiciously similar to the “Anya Song.”¬†

It WORKS . . . AGAIN !  

What is wrong with these girls?

 Anyway, Holly J. gives thanks to Sav and his magical musical charms,  by changing into a totally tarty outfit, and stripping for him in an abandoned classroom. 

AND . . . then . . .  just when things are starting to get exciting . . . the cops come and spoil EVERYTHING  . . . (No money shot today!)

I’m thinking the public indecency charge is not going to look so hot on Holly J.’s Yale application.¬† Just saying . . .¬† I blame Stud Muffin Sav and his hypnotic (and by “hypnotic,” I mean “awful”) voice.

But believe it or not, the cops didn’t break up Degrassi’s Vegas Night due to a Sav-induced noise violation.¬† So, why did they come, you ask?¬† Well . . . we’ll get to that in a bit.¬† We’ve got other slutty fish to fry first¬†. . .

Some like it hot . . . in the Boiler Room

“I did a BAD, BAD thing . . .”

OK.¬† So, where was I¬†during high school, that no one¬†EVER invited¬†ME to the hottest room in the building to get “nekkid” with the cool kids?

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Bianca!

So, Drew, the Dumb Jock with a Heart of Gold, but NO self control WHATSOEVER  . . .

Keep a bun on that weiner, boy!

 . . . was dating the smart, but super self-absorbed and slightly promiscuous, Alli . . .

¬†Except the “slightly” part of her promiscuousness was, apparently, not enough for Drew.¬† So, HE eventually succumbed to the charms of SUPER SLUT from SLUTTY SLUTVILLE, Bianca ¬†. . .

 . . . who inexplicably wears ugly ACID WASH mom jeans from 1982 . . .

¬†. . . and once¬†ALMOST got it on with Drew’s transgender step-bro, Adam . . .

Not only is Bianca a TOTAL HO, she also has a HUGE MOUTH (which, probably helped things along significantly in the Boiler Room, while these two were going at it). 

At Vegas Night, Big Mouth Bianca tells Drew’s girl, Alli,¬†about the illicit hookup.¬† And then, when Drew tries to say the two just kissed,¬†Bianca CORRECTS him, alluding to the fact that SHE kissed¬†Drew . . . DOWN BELOW.

So, the now- heartbroken,  still slightly- promiscious, Alli heads off to the Boiler Room with Big Bully, Small Willy, Owen . . .

¬†.¬† . . who offers her $50 bucks (Is that play money, or does Canadian cash actually look like that?) to kiss HIM¬† . . . DOWN BELOW.¬† But, like I said, Alli is only SLIGHTLY promiscuous.¬† And, while she DOES want to make Drew jealous, the “Nether Region Kissing thing” is a no-go for her.¬† So, Alli tells Big Bully, Small¬†Willy, Owen, “Thanks, but no thanks.”

Then he tries to RAPE HER!

Fortunately, Dumb Jock with the Heart of Gold, but NO Self Control, Drew comes to her rescue!

But then Drew’s MOM, who¬†is¬†some “big important”¬†school superintendent, or something . . .

 . . . comes to the Boiler Room, finds the pair together, and automatically assumes that Slightly Promiscious Alli seduced her poor little innocent son, Drew.  YIKES!

But that STILL doesn’t explain why the cops were¬†at Degrassi ¬†. . .¬† Not to worry.¬† This will . . .

Here’s¬†barfing at you, kid . . .

Smart, sensitive, slightly emo lovebirds, Eli and Clare, have TRULY been the REAL lovestory of this season.

Episode after episode, we have rooted for them, as they overcame eachother’s respective baggage (He sort of / kind of had a role in his ex-girlfriend’s death.¬† She’s massively uptight, and her last boyfriend dumped her for a prettier, but¬†much less intelligent,¬†blonde.), and tentatively moved toward a surprisingly sexy romantic relationship.

Eli and Clare studying French . . . kissing.

But while Clare and Eli were moving deeper into one another’s pants, Eli was still grappling with the fact that his ass was getting kicked fairly regularly by his Nemesis, Trailer Trash Fitzy . . .

Eli and Fitz have been sparring for most of the season — with Eli using his wits to get the better of Dumb Bunny Fitz, and Fitz responding by repeatedly kneeing Poor Eli in the nuts.¬† In an effort to evoke a truce between the two, the usually smart Clare inexplicably agrees to go to Vegas Night as Fitz’s date.

Ummm . . . riiiiiight, because the IDEAL way to stop your boyfriend from hating his nemesis, is to DATE that nemesis. 

Understandably, Eli is pissed.¬† He¬†wants Clare to put some Ipecac in Fitz’s drink to make him puke.¬† She refuses.¬† So, at Vegas Night, Eli spikes Fitz’s drink with the “puke juice” himself, and tricks Clare into getting Fitz to drink it.¬†

Infuriated and still smelling like vomit, Fitz goes to his locker, and gets a knife . . .

 . . . and then THIS happens . . .

. . . just kidding . . . but wouldn’t that have been AWESOME?

What actually happens is that Clare sees Fitz with the knife, and rushes to tell Principal Simpson.¬† THAT’S how the cops end up coming to the school, and finding Half Naked Holly J humping Sav in an abandoned classroom.¬† And THAT’S¬†how Drew’s superintendent (or something) mom ended up in the boiler room, where she found Slightly Promiscuous Alli doing precisely nothing but crying, and, yet,¬†jumped to conclusions about her sluttiness,¬†anyway.

Meanwhile, Fitz lunged at Eli with a knife . . .

 . . . but never ended up stabbing him.  Fitz DID make Eli piss his pants though.  One bodily function deserves another, I guess.  Now, they are even!  Plus, Eli, my favorite character of the season, will live on to brood, smoulder, and drive around town in his cool hearse, another day . . .

Ultimately, Fitz was arrested.  Principal Simpson then told his four once-favorite students that he was mad at them, and planned to make their lives miserable . . .

To prove it to them, he grabbed Fitz’s knife, and did THIS . . .

Kidding again!¬† Sorry, I couldn’t help myself . . .

Well .¬† . . there you have it.¬† That was the Season Finale of Degrassi’s Boiling Point in a nutshell.¬† What did you think of the episode?¬† Did you enjoy the Boiling Point?¬† Do you plan to watch Degrassi¬†next season?¬† Are you as much of Emo Eli fan as I am?¬† All good questions . . .

Degrassi: The Boiling Point (Because Canadian Teens are People Too!)

The cast of Degrassi: The Next Generation . . . NONE of these people are actually on the show anymore.  Seriously.

Once upon a time (the early 2000s) in a land far, far, away (Canada), a bunch of folks got together and created a half-hour television program called Degrassi: The Next Generation.  It was a show about high school kids (well . . . actually, they started out in junior high), one which starred actors and actresses who were ACTUALLY teenagers  . . .

 . . . as opposed to the 35- and 40-year olds who typically starred in teen television dramas at that time.

Meet the first 16-year old to ever suffer from menopause . . .

And the first 17-year old to experience erectile dysfunction disorder.

But what most of us fans of the show DIDN’T know, was that Degrassi wasn’t exactly NEW.¬† It was actually a revamp of a REALLY, REALLY, REALLY old show (from the 1980s)¬†that ALSO featured high school kids.¬† Except THEY looked like THIS . . .

Woah!  Scary!

 . . . and had HAIR like THIS . . .

How exactly did one sleep at night, with hair like THAT?¬† Wouldn’t it puncture holes in the bedroom wall, in the middle of the night?

Throughout the years, the NEW Degrassi grew more and more popular.  And as its cast aged (into their LATE teens, mind you, not their LATE fifties like those OTHER shows), its storylines became more and more provocative.  Degrassi began to tackle REAL issues that REAL teens faced everyday, like . . .

Rape;

Self-mutilation;

Mental illness;

Addiction to Prescription Pain Medication;

School Shootings; and

Zombies.

Due largely to the success of the show,¬†and the innate talents of its stars, many Degrassi: The Next Generation cast members went on to become big stars in .¬† . . wait for it . . . THE UNITED STATES.¬† For example, you may remember Darcy Edwards¬†(played by Shenae Grimes), the “good little Christian girl” . . .

“OMG!¬† You just CURSED!¬† You are SO going to hell!”

 . . . turned Skanky Ho / Internet Porn Star . . .

 . . . or, as you NOW know her, Annie from the NEW 90210.

Then, there was Little Jimmy (played by Aubrey Graham), the Rich Kid Jock . . .

 . . . who was tragically confined to a wheel chair, after being shot in the back by a psycho.  But you might know him better as kickass rapper dude, Drake . . .

And who could forget my personal favorite?  Baby Mama Mia.

¬†She¬†doesn’t look familiar to you?¬† Perhaps you’d recognize her more, if she was attached to the lips of some VERY HOT VAMPIRES . . .

It’s Nina Dobrev!¬† Or as you know her better, Elena Gilbert of The Vampire Diaries!

Can I get a, “Hell yeah!”

Unfortunately, soon after the departure of these folks (along with most of the rest of the show’s original cast) came an inevitable drop in the show’s ratings . . .

Coming up on its tenth season, Degrassi: The Next Generation was staring down cancellation.  To stay afloat, it needed a MIRACLE!  It needed a HAIL MARY!

Hail, Mary!

So the producers of Degrassi came up with a plan . . .

Why not spice things up a bit, by changing the show’s format to one that’s already proven successful?¬† Why not make Degrassi into . . . ¬†a SOAP OPERA!

So what if HALF of the longest running soap operas on television have been CANCELED within the past two years?

Clearly, this is an AMAZING and FAILSAFE idea!

And so, starting this week, Degrassi: The Next Generation¬†has¬†traded in its weekly airings for daily ones.¬† This summer,¬†a half-hour episode of the series will air every weekday at 9 p.m. on TeenNick for six weeks.¬† This television viewing event is being referred to by advertisers as THE BOILING POINT . . .¬†though I’m not quire sure why . . .

(Maybe watching it gives you hot flashes . . .)

The promo is pretty cool though!

THE BOILING POINT kicked off early this week, with a two-hour special entitled Degrassi Takes Manhattan.¬† The series got off to a good start, at least in terms of “shock value,” if not exactly for “good plotting” or “good acting.”¬† During the special, two characters who had precisely NOTHING to do with one another for the ENTIRE ten years they were on the program together (Spinner and Emma), inexplicably declared their “love” for one another, and got married . . .

“And you are . . .?”

(Man!  That drunken Vegas Toronto casino sex must have been REALLY GOOD . . .)

Then, an, admittedly very attractive, brother / sister duo (Declan and Fiona) engaged in a very public, disturbingly sexy, MAKEOUT session with eachother!

“So, Declan.¬† What do you think we should name our three-headed kids?”

But then, things kind of went downhill .  . .

Take this first week of episodes, for example.  It featured the following plotlines  . . .

THIS couple is NOT pregnant . . .

THIS girl is NOT getting a boob job  . . .

THIS girl did NOT try to commit suicide (ugly ass headband, notwithstanding).

If this keeps up, they may have to change Degrassi’s infamous tagline from “It Goes There” to “It Goes¬† . . . Where?”

I mean, really!  Fake pregnancies to win ELECTIONS?  Rumors about someone getting a boob job, when she is actually getting LASIK EYE SURGERY?  Could THIS be the same program that brought us this shocking scene?

OR this one?

Then again, maybe I’m being too harsh.¬† It IS early in the season, yet.¬† And maybe things will start to pick up, as the weeks wear on . . .¬† Here’s hoping . . .

So, I have to ask.  Have YOU been watching THE BOILING POINT?  If so, what do you think so far?

[Degrassi’s THE BOILING POINT airs weeknights at 9 p.m. on TeenNick this summer]
