TeenNick Kicks Off Degrassi “Crash Course” Marathon Tonight at 6pm

-

Today is the beginning of TeenNick’s “week-long” Degrassi marathon, which leads up to the Season 12 premiere on Monday July 16th.  Maybe it’s just me, but the promo seems a bit misleading.  It says “One entire week, 7 seasons, over 150 episodes,” which lead me to believe it’s gonna be a marathon like the old days, and they’re going to air every episode from Season 5 through Season 11.  But according to every tv listing out there, that’s not the case…it looks like they just randomly picked a handful of episodes from each season to air (there are some pretty dang good ones in there I must admit).

Each day of the marathon will feature episodes from a specific season.  Monday through Thursday the marathon is from 6pm – 11pm, and Friday through Sunday it’s 6pm – 10pm (all times are EST).  The full schedule is posted below.

  1. How could they only air a Part 1 of an episode on Monday and Tuesday? If they’re going to bother airing that episode in the first place, there’s a reason why they were broken up into 2 parts back during the earlier seasons.

  2. I didn’t find it misleading. They said “crash course” not a full on Every Degrassi Episode Ever Made marathon like previous years. They choose the episodes that you MUST see to start the season off right.

    • Still, when they say they’re having a Degrassi marathon, regardless of what it’s called, most people are going to assume it’s longer than just a couple of hours each day. The same would apply for any tv show announcing that they’re having a marathon.

  3. How can they show Rock This Town but not The Bitterest Pill?

    Leave it to Teen Nick to show some of the absolute worst episodes of Season 5 (the 7 to 8 episodes are just awful!) and leave out good ones. Where’s Foolin’ and Turned Out?

  4. They couldn’t pick more terrible episodes to air from Season 11… Like really? At least air Spring Fever…

  5. While I guess this schedule is more representative of what a “crash course” actually is, they should’ve said 70 episodes and only featured clips that are actually in the marathon. I kind of wish they would have started this earlier and just shown all the episodes because I recently started rewatching from Season 1, but they always drag you in with the promise of sneak peeks. No big deal, just bad timing on my part. On a side, these marathons really can impact your opinion on certain aspects of the show. I remember watching Season 5 when it originally aired and thinking it was insane, now it just seems cheesy and random. Guess I sort of love it in that sense, but with certain plots that year it really shows that that set of writers were running out of things to do with those characters.

    • I thought that they had good ideas for certain characters for Season 5 (Liberty’s pregnancy, Emma’s anorexia, Alex’s lesbianism). It was the execution that was the problem (having the pregnancy revolve around JT and barely featuring Liberty, zero build up towards the eating disorder, etc.).

      Anyways, how can they show a “crash course” of Season 5 and not show ONE pregnancy episode, not even a subplot? I know that the-n/TeenNick hates to acknowledge Liberty’s existence, but damn.
