Allison Raskin and Circa Pop Live talk Drake and the reunion of Degrassi


Ryan says the following video brought tears to his eyes -- Drake returned after the Pusha T diss track that pretty much came close to ruining his life with something that pulls at the heart strings: a Degrassi reunion! Drake's earlier career featured the actor playing Jimmy on the popular show, and hey, who can be mad at Jimmy? The video for the song, "I'm Upset" include a collection of our Degrassi favorites. Here to discuss are our hosts Ryan Mitchell, Martine Beerman, and our special guest, Allison Raskin. So what does this trio think of this reunion?

A post shared by Allison Raskin (@allisonraskin) on

Ryan adores it. Ryan discusses how much Degrassi meant to him as a teenager and shaped him as a young man. Ryan remembers seeing Marco, Degrassi's gay character and seeing his dealing with gender fluidity, and how much it meant to him. The trio then discuss the power of Canada, which produced the show. Allison remember watching so much of it, but remembering nothing. Ryan however? He remembers every little detail. Ryan however thinks Drake should have shown up in a wheelchair, like his character from the show. Degrassi clearly must return in a real way. Drake. My friend. We are counting on you.
