Maybe this shouldn’t be a blog post? IDK. But my external hard drive crashed. The one where I store all my broomheadz screen caps. I have the pictures backed up, but I’m just going to have to find a new rhythm for my posting. I’m still here, as always, and thanks for standing by while I try to get this figured out. It’s kind of taking the backseat for a week or so because Halloween. Be back soon!
DH S1E2: A New Start Part 2
Mr. Walfish is already incredibly different from Mr. Raditch. He’s more fun, relatable, and approachable, and I think his wardrobe shows that. Today he wears a nice rainbow-y shirt and khakis. Okay but seriously, maybe he’s a little too lax, because he didn’t even put his shirt on all the way and there are literally tufts of chest hair hanging out.

Okay, Tim is switching things up a bit – he’s not wearing that shirt he always wears. Instead he’s wearing a red flannel! Something totally new for him, as far as I can remember. But you know what? Next month I will have been doing this blog for THREE YEARS!!!!!!!!!!
DH S1E1: A New Start
OMG! Mr. Walfish! He’s the best! I only wish we could have seen more of him during our days at Degrassi High. He’s got a much more casual vibe than Mr. Raditch, for instance, wearing a plaid blazer. A plaid blazer? Those words don’t even seem like they go together.
Okay y’all. I’m a little shook lately. Why don’t I try to compose a list of all the DJH/DH/DTNG cast members I can think of so far who have acknowledged, talked to, shared, or even just liked broomheadz content!? I am just… so humbled and excited about all the people I’ve interacted with, even in the most subtle way.
Dayo Ade (BLT Thomas)
Irene Courakos (Alexa Pappadopoulos)
Karryn Sheridan (Vicky Friedland)
Colleen Lam (Vivian Wong)
Craig Driscoll (Rick Munro)
Cassie Steele (Manny Santos) [though some people think she has some sort of a bot liking every #degrassi post? not sure how that works]
Rebecca Haines-Saah (Kathleen Mead)
Nicole Stoffman (Stephanie Kaye)
Daniel Kelly (Owen Milligan)
Lyle Lettau (Tristan Milligan) [literally on IG live, he said “Oh hey broomheadz, I’ve noticed you before.”]
Sam Earle (KC Guthrie)
Melissa DiMarco (Daphe Hatzilakos)
Dear Love (Shane Kippel/Spinner Mason’s BAND!)
Cute Whore (Lyle Lettau/Tristan Milligan & Olivia Scriven/Maya Matlin’s BAND!)
EDIT 9/29/17: Arlene Lott (Nancy Kramer) on IG
That’s all I can think of. Maybe there was even more that I didn’t even notice, who knows? I am just so excited, I never thought this ridiculous tedious obsessive silly journey I began in Oct 2014 would put me in the eyes of some of the people who were actually involved in the show! The internet is a wonderful thing. I know, it’s not like THE Alexa is liking my photos, these characters aren’t real. But the actors devoted so much time and work, and really put a piece of themselves into these characters, so it’s still just as exciting that they stopped by broomheadz on one platform or another. Whew! My heart is all aflutter. Don’t ask me why I’m such a fool for Degrassi, but it sure has been fun! Thank you to everyone!!
Okay so, someone kindly brought to my attention via tumblr that, well, I SKIPPED AN ENTIRE EPISODE! I hopped right from S3E14 “Black and White” to S3E16 “Bye Bye Junior High”! So unfortunately, this blog isn’t in perfect chrono order. I have decided to carry on and finish out my coverage of E16, and then jump back and go through E15. From there we will proceed to Degrassi High. Maybe I was getting too antsy to get to High, who knows! Anyway, I know you broomheadz will bear with me!
