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.

"Degrassi: The Next Generation" is a show for teens originally aired in Canada, edited and replayed endlessly for us Americans. it chronicles a group of connected and unconnected teens and their stuggle through junior high. It tackles issues like rape, drugs, abuse, and pregnancy.
There is nothing amazing or breakthrough about this show. The writing is mediocre, the acting is hardly passable, the plot is straightforward, and the motivations are appallingly unexplained.
I do have to say though, it seems when the subject matter is serious enough, and the production team is willing to treat it honestly, there are a few notable episodes that did rise to the occaison. One was the hour-long episode "Pride" dealing with Marco's character's sexuality, his coming out, the reaction from his friends, and a hate crime. It was exceptional and honest, and I only wish that more episodes like these could be made. Another similiar episode dealt with Marco on a date with, drumroll and gasp, a gay teen. The episode was able to give a gay couple the same treatment as the several heterosexual couples portrayed by showing their date, letting it be awkward, and even letting the two young actors share a kiss.
But besides these surprising exceptions, Degrassi's characters are sterotypes, the issues are not taken seriously, and the writing is clunky and groan-inducing. In the episode portraying one character's brush with ecstasy, the effects of the drug are horribly underprotrayed. When one character gets another pregnant, there is no backlash for the father, no follow-up , no reactions from others in the school.
Do I watch it and enjoy it? I guess. I take some amuesement in the unbelieveable predicaments, the terribley developed and one-tune characters, and the abundance of cliches.

Ok so normally i just flip through chanels and when theres nothing good on i go to like every channel and watch for a little while. So i flip to the n, and i was thinking isnt that that retarded nogin channel? And i was like omg this show is so bad! And i turned the tv off. A few days later i come back and i just turn the tv on and i dont change it and i just watch and i thinking 'wow this shows really good!' i hit the info button and its degrassi i was so surprised! Then like every night i would watch it. And with a couple of weeks of watching i became obbsessed i would get really upset if i missed an episode. I would look forward to fridays only because a new degrassi episode would come on. This is the best show ever. It deals with stuff that every day teens go through. Boyfriends, sex, drugs, alchol, cut, breakups, heartbreaks, rape.. You name it, its been covered. With all the cheesy shows like 'for love or money' or 'the OC' Its amazing they would keep a show on the air thats so old. I would die if they stopped airing it. Its so good! When i found out it was coming out on dvd i ordered it right away so that i could have it as soon as i possibaly could. If you watch one episode and your like wow this is bad, give it another try and you would be surprised at how good it is. Thats what happened with my friend. If you dont wanna buy the show at least turn on your tv to the n and watch it. Its on around 7-8. Well its deffinently worth your money! On a scale from 1-10 its gets an 100

The Canadian teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation is a spinoff of the original Degrassi which debuted in the 80s. It's now 2004 and the Degrassi franchise is more popular than ever, and hasn't lost it's realistic portrayal of the lives of high school teens. Season 1 premiered back in 2001 and introduced a new generation of kids dealing with real life issues from sex to peer pressure to illegal drugs. The show is filming it's fourth season now and has often pushed the boundaries on sensitive topics, such as homosexuality, rape and abortion. Degrassi has gained an increasing amount of attention from U.S. fans, from young teens to adults. With a reputation for being blunt and very honest about several of the issues the series tackles, Degrassi often tries to provide an unbias interpretation of the situation. I have recently become a devoted fan this past year and I enjoy watching every episode. The show makes you laugh, makes you cry, and makes you more open-minded as a person. And Season 1 is where it all starts!!! Degrassi: The Next Generation can be seen on The-N Fridays at 8 et. and all weekend long.
