  • Spinner starts to pick fights after finding out he has cancer.

    "Death or Glory" part 2 is a fantastic episode. Once again, this is my favourite Spinner storyline. It's so intense how Spinner has testicular cancer. In this episode, Spinner is angry that he has cancer and so he starts to pick fights. I love how the Jimmy and Spinner friendship has evolved. I like how they're friends again because it was awful when Jimmy cut Spinner out of his life. Marco subplot was so sad. He has lonely and he gets himself a pet. I give this episode a 10/10.moreless

    spinner begins fighting johnny dimarco and his friends, as a way of coping with his cancer. but is this the right thing for him to be doing? marco begins to be more social after his boyfriend dylan moves away.

    weaker than part 1 i think but still an incredible episode, spinner has become my favorite character (well him and jt) and this is another fantastic episode i think. really sad in some places. the marco plot was boring i thought but spinner's was much better and so because of all this i give the episode an overall grade of an A+moreless
  • Spinner fights his way through cancer.

    Spinner continues with his destructive ways on fighting cancer. He fights everyone that comes near him, which drives away Jane, and all of his other friends. It's good Jimmy talks him in to his sense, before his cancer got worse, and his school record. In the end, he finally gets treated for the cancer, by getting his testicles cut off. Well one testicle. It's good to see this resolved, but he still has to fight for it, in another sense. The B plot was okay, Marco hitting on Griffin, then getting a rabbit in the end, wow, he's really alone. An okay episode.moreless
  • Spinner deals with cancer in a dangerous way...he fight cancer with his fists!

    Another WOW Degrassi episode. Spinner starts to deal with his cancer in a dangerous way...with his fists. It's a rather awesome episode....Spinner decides that fighting Johnny is a good way to release his stress about getting his left nut cut off. But his new barbaric way my lose him the girl: Jane. When Spinner insults Jimmy, Jimmy decides to leave him alone and let him act all stupid and beat the hell out of some dudes. When Jane talks Jimmy into stopping Spinner to fight Bruce the Moose, Jimmy resists but then eventually talks some since into him. This episode was great in the beginning then it slowly began to lose it in the last 10 or so minutes. The part when Spinner cut his hair and went to beat the douchebagness out of Johnny DiMarco, was a great moment...and very dramatic! The B plot was about Marco and him falling in like with new comer and their new roommate, Griffin and how Marco could be alone. Marco's stroylines these days are wack!!! Ever since the end of TEOTH in season 5....But a rather nice A plot.moreless
  • Spinner begins to deal with his cancer.

    This episode was a lot better than "Death Or Glory" part one. The writing was a little improved but still it was hard to get into. The only interesting thing about this episode was the Jane/Spinner scenes. The other scenes with Johnny Dimarco were all boring and i felt as if they were re-hashing the whole season 6 rivalry but with different charecters. And then to top it all off they bring in Danny and Derek who just ruined everything with their quirky lines and stupid actions. So all in all this episode was slightly enjoyable but was hard to stay with.moreless
