I’ve got an incredibly special surprise for you! This special moment is something you can only spot if you’re really looking for it! Yick Yu makes an appearance at this party at Spike’s house. It’s very subtle and low-key, which I understand, I mean the 12-year-old audience isn’t gonna care about this random “old” dude, but they SHOULD! Yick is wearing awesome tiny little shades, spiked hair, and a brown jacket.
Yick!! You actually get to see him a bit when Joey punches Keith or whatever but everything is so shaky I couldn’t get a shot. Let me tell you about the challenges of screenshotting DTNG. Firstly, they do a LOT of closeup in the face shots. Second, they do a lot of “handheld” shaky camera type of filming. Third, my DVDs don’t allow me to scrub forward or backward if I miss a shot. It only lets me go forward or backward in chapters. But fortunately I was able to grab this little Yick shot from the deleted scenes. He’s got gelled, spiky hair, a nice suit, and a little, soul patch? Is that what it’s called?
DTNG FASHION S1E2: Mother and Child Reunion Part 2
Rather than splitting the old crew up, here’s a little look at some of the attendees. I’m disappointed this is basically all we get of them, but there are some deleted scenes I’ll share shots of later on. You’ll see Kathleen, Diana, Rainbow, Yick, Trish, Liz, Joy, and I did see Simon but I was unable to grab a picture. Let me tell you, when I first watched all this, I had never seen DJH or DH. Then, after watching them, I came back to this episode on an average rewatch and suddenly my mind was blown that I recognized so many people!
I can’t believe this is it. We sign off of Degrassi Junior High / Degrassi High forever now, with Yick! Man, you thought Yick was cool before, he has reached maximum coolness by School’s Out – look at this! He smokes a joint in a bandanna and backwards cap, a tee with a vest, and jeans rolled up at the bottom. At the lake he’s still besties with Luke I see, and wears the same headgear and a cool 90s looking tee. And finally, at Simon and Alexa’s wedding he’s got that hair slicked back and a nice tan suit. OK YICK!
