  • Manny will do anything to become an actress.

    "Venus" part 1 is a great Degrassi premiere. In this episode Manny will do whatever it takes to become an actress. In this episode she considers getting plastic surgery. Even though, Degrassi does a lot of episodes about body image, this is a great episode because a lot of teenagers don't like their body and wish they had the money for plastic surgery. I'm actually glad that Manny didn't actually get the surgery. The end of the episode is awesome because it's one of Manny's most memorable and quotable moments. It's when Peter films Manny flashing her breasts and saying "I'm gonna be an actress, like academy award winning. And you can sell this video for a million dollars, cause I'm gonna be famous!". I give this episode a 9/10.moreless
  • Not only did Manny show her boobs, her dad called her a slut, and she tried to get a boob job, we now have undeniable proof that Ashley is a terrible person.moreless

    So many awesome things in this episode I don't know where to start. The episode starts by the pool, Manny and Emma sittin' pretty soakin up the sun. Manny wants to be an actress. Roll the opening.



    Emma and Manny talk to this new guy peter who is a sophomore, and he tells Manny to go and show what she's got to the agent or whatever they call it in Canada. She goes and the lady calls her milk.



    soon after, manny wants a boob job. She recruits emma to come with her to the boob job guy. The boob job guy says that she needs to talk to her parents about it. She says yes (which is just plain stupid) and she leaves. Now her father is very angry. He got a call from the boob job guy and told manny why she wants one. She says she'll be famous then. He calls her a slut. OMFG! Wow. She leaves.



    Later at a party she gets drunk on vodca with this random guy. Peter lures her away with his evil powers, and they chat in this bathroom. He hold up the camera, and manny says she's getting a boob job. Peter says they're fantastic, and she agrees. Than for some reason, (not that she needs one, she's drunk) she flashes her boobs for the camera. Hehehe. Peter now has them on camera. What will he do with this material? TO BE CONTINUED! DUN DUN DUN.



    A-Plot Grade: A++ 110% Now the Ashley incident. She decides to stay in europe. She also has a new boyfriend whom I assume is not bi-polar. Way to be a jerk, Ashley. What's her deal anyway? He has a birthday party when spinner spills the beans about ashleys euro-boy. He gets all cranky. Boo hoo for him.



    B-Plot Grade: C+ 77%



    Final Grade: A+ Best Quote ever in Degrassi history: "And you can sell this for a million dollars, because I'm- GONNA BE FAMOUS!!! (Shows Her Boobs)"moreless

    This episode was really intense! I mean a great way to start a season, a new school year begins, for junior & seniors at Degrassi, Manny decides to be an actress, after her agent makes fun of her, she turns to surgery & when her dad finds out, he goes ballistic! And calls her a slut so she gets drunk & shows her breast on Peter's camera, by the way a great way to introduce a new character, the subplot, Ellie figures out that Ashley dumped Craig & everyone knows but him plus his birthday is coming up so she should find another to tell him but when he finds out by Spinner in public, Ellie's dead to him, it is also revealed that Ellie likes Craig. So it's the worst of times. A great cliffhanger & made you want to watch more, a wonderful start to Season 5.moreless

    I liked this episode. manny wants to be an actresss and thinks plastic surgery may help, but her parents don't approve, which makes Manny unhappy.Manny's dad calls her a slut and she leaves her house and goes to a party where she meets Peter. Then she drinks a nd gets drunk and goes into a room with Peter and exposes her breasts in front of Peter's Camera and tells her, she's gonna be famous and that her body is worth 1 million dollars. Then Peter does the unthinkable and decides to post it on the web and send it to everyone. Very exciting episode.moreless
