  1. I agree with everything except the ‘Holiday Road’ episode. I actually liked that episode and I think it showed that Emma was finally gonna get her life on track and do what she wants to do.

    I totally agree with the Mia finally leaving part, though. I didn’t mind her character but the final episodes she was in were kind of disappointing. They just talked about modeling and nothing else. lol

  2. I PRETTY much agree with everything BUT Degrassi Takes Manhattan…I personally think that Degrassi Takes Manhattan was one of the BEST I have seen from Degrassi ! I would give it a A++ :)

  3. Kay I love Emma but yes she got boring
    I luv how she pulled off the annyoing girl at the beggining but yea time to go!!! And goodbi Mia hated her I miss parcey hated her and Peter!!!!

  4. I enjoyed seeing how the season ended but isn’t Degrassi Takes Manhattan part of the Boiling Point?

    • Yeah, but keep in mind that it was the season finale, which is the reason why the first week of the Boiling Point had new episodes on every weekday, including Friday.

  5. Season 9 was a step up from season 8 i give them that..more mediocre storylines and a couple of new people spice it up all the time..but this & season 8 cant compare to Season 10, Season 10 so far has been amazing and what ive been waiting for!

  6. I Totally Loved the whole SPINNER + EMMA thing! :)
    Degrassi Takes Manhattan ROCKEDD!.. :)
