Degrassi Junior High “What a Night!” (part 1 of 5)

Previously on Degrassi Junior High: Lorraine Delacorte, AKA L.D., AKA Degrassi’s one and only tomboy character, was terrified to visit her dad in the hospital, apparently believing that as soon as you visit a person in the hospital, that person immediately dies. Y’know, that old superstition again.

Meanwhile, in keeping with the whole “fear” theme of the episode, the Scarecrow showed up and gassed everybody. Well, okay, not exactly. What actually happened was Melanie had to face her fear of snakes when Degrassi’s pet California king snake went missing.

L.D.’s dad lived, the snake was found, and in the end, we learned there was nothing to fear besides imaginary radio plays.

These Degrassi recaps are getting kind of short, now that I don’t have a whole lot of stuff to digress about. So to pad out this recap a little bit, I decided to spend some time cruising around the internet to see what other people have been saying about my recaps of Degrassi Junior High.

Over at Tomato Nation, blogger Sarah D. Bunting recently expressed a desire to recap an ‘80s show, and had narrowed it down to the likes of Miami Vice, 21 Jump Street, and Degrassi Junior High. This was met with the following response:

Jen S: Agony Booth and The Dairi Burger are both regularly slamming Degrassi–21 is all yours, baby, all yours.

That’s right—Degrassi is all mine, so step off! Actually, that’s not how I feel at all. The more people recapping Degrassi Junior High the better, as far as I’m concerned. But wait, what’s this ”Dairi Burger” thing Jen S. is talking about?

    I think Stephanie’s choice “date” attire here really makes her look like (as you frequently refer to her) a 14YO hooker…also, why do the Degrassi parents seem to have no idea what their kids are up to, particularly in this episode?
