  • Sean returns.

    "Here Comes Your Man" part 1 is actually a pretty good Degrassi episode. It's really surprising that Sean comes back in this episode and that he's going to be a main character again. It's pretty obvious that the writers love Emma and Sean as a couple. Even though you sort of get used to Peter and Emma, I actually enjoyed Emma and Sean as a couple in season 6. I liked them as a couple because they a lot more mature than when they were dating in seasons 1 and 2. Street-racing is definitely a new issue I wouldn't think to cover on a television show. But, I know that street-racing was popular when this episode aired, so it makes sense. I give this episode a 8.5/10.moreless
  • Season 6, Episode 1.

    The new school year has started, and Darcy has forgiven Spinner's infidelity. Emma has been pretty happy so far, but then Sean returns to Degrassi and complicates things. Peter gets a new car for his birthday and becomes interested in illegal drag racing. On the college front, Marco is overwhelmed with moving in with Dylan and throwing Paige a going away party, while trying to accept that everyone is going their seperate ways.

    I thought this episode was okay. It wasn't one of the greatest in the show's history, but it wasn't the worst. Sean didn't necessarily have to return, but it's making things interesting, I guess. But I like Peter's hot new car! :) Anyway, this was a decent episode. Darcy forgave Spinner. Darcy is like my favorite character. Cool episode. :)moreless
  • Like a bad fanfic.

    This craptacular episode begins with Sean's return. Unfortunately, he's not as cool as he used to be; rather, he is just "the hot guy who creams every time Emma's name is mentioned", hence the title. O, how the mighty have fallen.

    Anyway, Sean likes Emma and tries to get her to cheat on Peter. (What? Is she Ashley now?) Manny is talking about what a bad idea it is. Wait, since when did Sean and Manny know each other other than through Emma (and Craig, but TPTB have completely forgotten Craig used to know Sean except when Craig's being pissy about his inheritance)? Peter frames Sean, so Sean challenges him to a race because we all know illegal street racing clears your name. It's better than DNA. I could continue, but I don't even want to talk about this crap-fest.moreless

    this episode was so dumb. This is the worst season opener to date! Sean returns and of course Emma wants him, but she is still dating Peter. uhoh what is Emma going to do now? Why, cheat on Peter of course! This episode had some lame and stupid lines especially from Emma and Sean and was just boring and dull. Ashley's back though, which was great!Sean and Emma are extremely boring and out of character and should not be together anymore. iThe writers actually think we care about Sean/Emma. Now they make another stupid love triangle. Worst episode to date. just bad.moreless
