  • Voula will do whatever it takes to go to the school dance.

    8.5
    "The Big Dance" is a great Degrassi Junior High episode. I actually love Voula in this episode and it's basically the only episode beside the series premiere in which I like her. I love her storyline of trying to live in the new generation while being held back by the old generation. I love how she gets rebellious and lies to her dad about the school dance. My favourite plot had to be the Stephanie's plot. I love how Lucy invited Heather, Erica, and Stephanie to her house before the dance. I love how Heather and Erica acted like they drank before. I love how Stephanie gets drunk. I give this episode a 8.5/10.moreless

    this was my favorite degrassi episode ever because it was so much fun. there were no serious issues, no dramatic moments, no preaching like in the later years of degrassi. the girls just saw the liquor and decided to get wasted. hahaha. btw the twins got drunk too. hahahaha.

  • Stephanie asks Wheels to the dance. Voula wants to go but her dad forbids her. Stephanie gets drunk at Lucy's before the dance, and things get ugly.

    Classic example of parents too strict and what one will do for attention and popularity. I love how the class is sponsoring a child, and looking for ways to help. Having Stephanie ask Lucy about asking boys out, that's a good start. Of course then Stephanie never waits to be asked out; she is in control. She asks Wheels out, and he seems happy. Interesting how diverse thinking is between Voula and Lucy. Lucy has spent her whole life manipulating her parents, while Voula's have regulated her every move. It's good to see that interaction, and learning from it. I hated watching how Stephanie gets drunk, and then goes to the dance; that's disgusting. When I was in junior high, you can't get into their dances if you're drunk! How did she get in? And then slobber over Wheels? Ugh! I would be proud of Voula for her speech about the foster child. Yet her dad just uses this to exercise his authority; I hate when parents do that! But there are those who do; so good example. And Voula just submitting to him in order to save her butt. So many girls have done that.moreless
