Degrassi Junior High “Nothing to Fear” (part 1 of 3)
Previously on Degrassi Junior High: Stephanie and Wheels tried again to have something resembling an actual date. Luckily, they were both in agreement that “actual dates” all end with sex. But things went south when it turned out the nice pharmacist lady who sold Wheels condoms is actually Stephanie’s mom. Whoops.
Meanwhile, Arthur and Yick made plans to watch a porno called Swamp Sex Robots. Fortunately, Arthur’s mom has a VCR. Unfortunately, Arthur’s mom is also Stephanie’s mom, and the living room ended up being occupied by a single mother wondering how she could have gone so horribly wrong as a parent.
Greetings, and welcome to the most boring episode of Degrassi Junior High. And yes, I realize that’s a pretty big statement to make. You’re probably wondering how I came to this conclusion.
For one thing, this exact same plot was already done on Kids of Degrassi Street, a show geared towards 8 year olds, and probably done better there, to boot. That episode, for those fanatical enough to care, was called “Cookie Goes to Hospital” (which is not a typo. That’s how those crazy Canucks actually talk. Instead of saying that someone is “going to the hospital”, they say that person is “going to hospital”. Don’t ask me why) and believe me, it was about as salacious as an episode of Dora the Explorer.
