  • Manny plans the dance.

    7.0
    "Bark at the Moon" is a pretty good Degrassi episode. I love the continuation with Manny still a little upset about getting an abortion. In this episode she's putting on a dance and they're trying something new where you have to go with the person you're matched up with. I love how Manny tries to set herself up with Chester for the school dance. Anyways, I actually liked Manny and Spinner as a couple. I half-liked the subplot. I don't like Paige and Mr. O as a couple, but I love how Manny caught them kissing. I am so happy that Mr. Raditch leaves Degrassi in this episode. I give this episode a 7/10.moreless
  • This episode is about Manny scared of getting into a relationship after her abortion. Meanwhile, Paige won't give up on her crush on Mr.O

    1.1
    I absolutely, postively hated this episode because of the whole Manny/Spinner hookup. They would have to be the WORST hookup in Degrassi history. I have and will never want them to hookup again. Manny is my favorite character but this would have to be mistake #2. How could she ever be with Spinner? Anyway, I actually liked Paige and Mr. O hooking up because they looked rather cute and cozy together. Mr. O may have been way too old for Paige but they were compatible. More compatible than Manny and Spinner I might add.moreless
  • This episode is about Manny scared of hooking up with Spinner in fear of getting hurt. Meanwhile, Paige deals with her crush on Matt and it seems he likes her too.moreless

    I absolutely hate this episode and the only reason I'm giving it that much credit because I liked the whole Paige/Matt pairing. The whole Manny/Spinner is terrible. Spinner and Manny! Give me a break. I mean Manny shouldn't have to worry about getting hurt. She was gonna get hurt regardless I mean Spinner cheated on Paige.



    Cassie Steele usually does a good job but not not on this episode. She is a great actress and the only thing keeping me from givin it a 0 is the fact she ends up with Craig. Marco should have promoted Paige and Matt instead of Manny and Spinner. He should have just left them alone.



    Lauren Collins did a great job on this episode and the chemistry between her and the Matt character. The chemistry was phenomal and awesome. But again Marco was rooting for the wrong team. But that's what made me dislike him for a little bit.



    Overall this episode could have been better. This is the first episode where Linda Schuyler and the rest of the writers slipped up.moreless
  • It was iight...

    7.7
    As Spinner and Manny start their relationship, Manny has a hard time forgetting about last year's drama dealing with Craig. She has no clue if Spinner will try to play her like Craig did, so she meets a new student at Degrassi called Chester. Chester really sweeps Manny off her feet until she realizes Spinner is the one for her. Paige wants Matt to be with her, but since he's a teacher he's finding it diffcult to resist Paige. After denying his feelings he puts the ultimate liplock on Paige and tells her they must meet off school grounds because it's too risky.moreless
  • I just hate Manny

    9.1
    Manny's whole part in this episode is stupid. I can't stand her and I don't really care about her feelings or what she is going through. I hate her and it doesn't really matter if she is scared of a relationship or whatever. As for Paige and Mr. O., I am so happy they finally kissed and I think they have such chemistry. I love them two together and I don't care that he is her superior!moreless
