Okay so at my school this kid everyday would ask me, "Dude, did you watch Degrassi last night?" and I would always say "No. I don't watch Degrassi." But then a few weeks ago I was channel surfing and I started watching Degrassi and oh my god it is addictive. This show not only is amusing and hilarious, but it teaches teenagers important lessons and shows them that it's okay to be who you are. Degrassi goes through middle and high school and the social issues everyday teens have to deal with. During numerous episodes, you see kids struggling with their sexuality, puberty, dating, family issues (divorce, death, remarriage etc.) and friendship. This show has the drama of Fox's hit, The O.C., but Degrassi: The Next Generation teaches important lessons and instill values into kids, without discussing embarassing issues with an adult, instead of showing perfect people doing illigal things (drinking underage). I would rate this show a 100000000000000 out of 10 and I am definately going to buy it and I think that you should all buy it either for yourself or a teenager struggling with one or more of these issues.
