“Degrassi: The Next Generation” is the fourth show in the Degrassi franchise. It features a completely new cast, however, the storylines are similar just in a new and modernized way. Drake (yes, the musician) was a big name on the show and in 2018 most of his friends from the set joined in and appeared in his “I’m Upset” video.
Do you remember Snake (Archie) from the early “Degrassi Junior High” series? Well, he is the one actor who appeared throughout the entire franchise more than anyone else. He started off as a student and then moved on to play one of the characters’ stepdads and the school’s principal.
Jonas Had the Cast Grow Out of Their Own Characters
Believe it or not but the Jonas Brothers have been around for almost twenty years. They made their grand appearance on the Disney Channel network and from there, things could only get better for the three brothers. The show tried to merge two stores into one of a successful teen band and three secret agents. Some may say that the success of this trio resembles the days of the Beatles' "Hard day Night" back in the early 1960s.
In 2010, the fairytale came to an end, both for the TV series and for the band. Joe, one of the brothers said that they were becoming adults and are outgrowing the show. They felt the show was simply not good. Apparently, they were not like the Beatles after all.
What Does Twin Peaks Have to Do With Marylin Monroe?
Two seasons were more than enough for "Twin Peaks". It aired for just two seasons and packed up. The storyline was supposed to cover Marilyn Monroe's biography suggesting that the conspiracy involving the Kennedys was actually true. Although the idea was good, the execution was unreachable.
The final version of "Twin Peaks" as we know does consist of elements sourced from Monroe's story but still has miles between it and the real events.
Southpark Has People Doing Animal Parts
In "Southpark", there is a celebrity in every episode in one form or another. It all came to an end after Tom Cruise threatened to sue the show's creators, however, there are many memorable moments dusted with the sparks of fame. Do you know who voiced the gay dog Sparky? It was George Clooney. And Jerry Seinfeld? Well, he was supposed to voice a turkey but he chickened out at the last minute.
It ran for 25 seasons and is still alive and kicking on reruns. Although "Southpark" is an animated show and is considered a teen and upwards cartoon, it is probably one of the best adult-aimed cartoons ever created.
Felicity Got the Pretty Face They Never Wanted
Is there such a thing as being too beautiful? Well, apparently there is. When Kerry Russell auditioned for the part of Felicity she came with her hair untidy and in a bun and with the baggiest clothes she could find. Her biggest fear was being cast as Felicity's beautiful best friend Maya. Her concerns were justified.
The show's producer thought Russell was too pretty for the role, however, he soon enough changed his mind. Not only was Russell magnetically stunning, but she was also funny and witty. After reading her lines out loud she got the part.
