  • Eggbert-Babies Aren't All They Are "cracked" Up To Be

    8.0
    Good lesson in the responsibility involved in parenting.
  • Spike takes care of an egg for a week to see what parenting is like.

    "Eggbert" is a great way to start season 2 of Degrassi Junior High! I love how Spike is given an egg and she has to take care of it for a week to see what parenting is like. I love how she gives the egg to Shane and she'll only accept his apology if he takes care of the egg. It was so intense how they were throwing the egg around at the party and Spike gets really mad and she smashes the egg herself. Stephanie's plot was so funny with Steph getting rid of all her "sexy" clothes, and she gives them to Alexa. I love how Steph wants the clothes back to get Simon to notice her. I give this episode a 9/10.moreless
  • My very first episode...Wonderful.

    7.1
    I found this episode online and decided to give the show a try seeing as I adore The Next Generation. I absolutly loved it. Seeing as how I already knew what happens to the characters I actually found it kind of funny and quirky that Spike was worrying about being pregnant with Emma. Shane Mckay wasn't mentally ill back then and he was a cool character. I found the egg stuff kind of odd and I thought Spike was taking it way too seriously at times. Those two girls (God, I don't even know their names) are fun characters to watch. Them fighting about the clothes and the new guy was really entertaining and I found that those scenes went by really fast while the Spike/Shane scenes were dragging on a bit. The little kids in this episode were so much more annoying then the little kids in the next generation were. A water gun? It seemed like they were younger then they are supposed to be. It was a great opening episode to the season (or in my case, the series) and i'll be sure to keep watching.moreless

Shane later tells his parents that he got her pregnant. this episode had a great story and some great dialogue and it made shane into one of the shows stars. the whole cast shines in this one. it also had one of the best endings ever when shane comes home and says "mom, dad.....theres something i have to tell you"...awesome.moreless

    The season starts out with Spike dealing with her pregnancy. She is given the responsibility of taking care of "Eggbert" for two weeks. When Shane (who hasn't told his parents the joyous news of the pregancy) feels guilty and wants to help, Spike hands him Eggbert- it's his responsibilty for a week.



    Simon Dexter joins the 8th grade class and catches the attention of Stephanie and Alexa. Stephanie's resolve to dress more conservatively goes out the window! She is determined to get her sexy clothes back from Alexa (whom she gave them to) and to make Simon her new man.moreless
