  • Emma is determine to prove Sean and his gang are stealing.

    "This Charming Man" is good Degrassi episode. I love Chris as a character, but I don't like Emma and Chris as a couple. But what I love about this episode is Emma tries to prove that Sean, Jay, and the gang are stealing. So even though I don't like Emma and Chris as a couple, at this point I don't like Sean's character anymore at all, so I'm glad that they try to bring him down in this episode. I enjoy the subplot in this episode. I love how Paige had a crush on the driving instructor and that distracted her from driving. I give this episode a 7.5/10.moreless
  • Emma tries to prove Sean is stealing things from all over Degrassi. Spinner is mad when he learns that his girlfriend Paige has a crush on their driving teacher.

    I love this episode but Sean why are you making out with Amy. At least it don't last long. Oh and Spinner? People can have crushes in relationships. Just so ya know. So Emma wants to make sure Sean gets what he deserves after he broke up with her and that was awesome. Go Emma! Jimmy was hilarious in this episode (in my point of view) and Spinner was uncool but an awesomely uncool. I am left to wonder why Paige would have a crush on the teacher. He was ugly as anything...

  • Emma's personality change begins in this episode.

    This episode marks the beginning of Emma's personality change. She goes from being an activist to being a revenge-warped young lady. It's interesting thatshe's so upset that Sean broke her heart, when in season one, she broke up with him initially.

    The actor portraying Chris and Miriam have no on-screen chemistry whatsoever. I think they should have picked another character in order to make the budding romance more realistic.

    The episode was ok...a little too dramatic at times, but decent enoughmoreless

    • Sean: Nancy Drew, why are you following me?
      Emma: I wasn't.
      Sean: (opens the box) What, did you think there was going to be a DVD player in here?
      (Emma gives him a slightly evil look)
      Sean: Look, I know our breakup sucked and I'm sorry you got hurt. But that was months ago, and what I do with Jay and with Amy is none of your business.

    • Mr. Raditch: Is there something you'd like to say Mr. Cameron?
      Sean: Yeah, go to hell!

  • NOTES (3)

    • This was actually aired as the 11th episode of the season.

    • In Ontario (where this show takes place) you have to be 16 before you can get what is called a G1, in order to drive. This is done with a written test, and there are a lot of limitations, such as needing an experienced driver in the car at all times. G2 is the next step, about a year later, and to get it you need to do a driving test, and then your full license is called a G (another driving test, which can't be taken for at least 6 months). However, Jimmy, Paige, and Spinner are all just 15. This is most likely to appease the American viewers as they have their learner's permit (G1 equivalent) at 15 and can get their full license at 16. To explain the Ontario system for the show might be too much work, so they change it to American rules.
