Just forget the words and sing along

Here I claim to be a Kevin Smith fan, but I haven't reported on this DVD yet.

Coming out on November 8 is Jay and Silent Bob do Degrassi. This disc contains the 3 episodes of Degrassi: The Next Generation that featured special guest star Kevin Smith!

If you missed these episodes when they were on back in March, here's the plot. Smith comes north to Canada to film his latest movie, Jay and Silent Bob Go Canadian, Eh?. He decides to film a huge chunk of it at Degrassi Junior High, thus getting Smith intertiwned with all the Degrassi characters. It also features Jason Mewes as himself, and cameos by Alanis Morissette and Smith's wife Jennifer Schwalbach.

Anyway, if you missed it, you can pick it up on DVD on November 8. They tell us that this is an "unrated version," with 5 minutes of footage that was too hot for TV! Here's all what you get for bonus stuff:

- Interview with Kevin Smith, all about his love for Degrassi Junior High.
- Running commentary by Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Degrassi star Stacie Mistysin (on both the original Degrassi and the new one, she plays Caitlin. Yes, Caitlin Bree in Clerks is named after her), associate producer (and Degrassi co-creator) Jim Jackman, and episode writer Aaron Martin.
- Reel Footage: The Canadian Ninja Scene
- Blooopers
- Cut scenes
- Behind the scenes photos

All Kevin Smith fans should have one!
