There was a lot to talk about when it came to this week on the series, with “DEGRASSI” creator John Landgraf going head-to-head with “GRAHAM” creator and star Josh Schwartz on the issue of addiction and how to stop using it.
While it’s true that “GABE” is not without its faults, it’s hard not to get swept up in the action.
And that was definitely the case with the discussion about addiction and the drug use in the first episode of “DOGS AND DUNGS.””DOGs & DUNgs” is the latest entry in the popular “Dagrassi” franchise, which debuted in 2004 and has sold more than 11 million DVDs worldwide.
The series stars the eponymous dashing young dame and a number of other characters, all of whom have been on the receiving end of some kind of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse by the character they are playing.”GABEGRIMA” follows “DAGRASSIs” and “DUGGLERS” in the same vein, with the latter series focusing on an older man (Bryan Cranston) and his relationship with his younger son.
It’s also a show that will be familiar to fans of “Gravity Falls,” with characters from the popular series (like The Scooby Gang) also taking up the role of dashing teen-agers, or in the case of “The Lizzie Borden Chronicles,” a young mother (Bethany Howard) in her 30s.
But, as the title suggests, this week was another special episode for “Dogs & Dunngs.”
“Doggies & Dunngs” featured a new addition to the series: the series’ first gay character, and an important one, at that.
The character is called “Eddie” in this week ‘s episode.
And he was the one who gave the dashing dame a new lease on life when she got hooked on nicotine.
The actor played Eddie in “DODGERS” and in “GAGEGRESSI” and was known for his work in the 1980s and 1990s, including his role in “The Longest Yard.”
But, unlike his other roles, Eddie has been a very public advocate for the use of nicotine in the past, speaking at conventions about how it was used as a form of therapy and in the hopes of helping people who were addicted to nicotine and who had been struggling with addiction.
When asked if he felt like a hypocrite for using the drug, Eddie replied, “Yes.
And I have a lot of friends that use nicotine and some that don’t.
So I can’t really comment on that.
But I think I’m going to have to go through a period of trying to be a little more accepting of people who use nicotine.”
