The beginning of a television franchise
23 October 2002 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

And a humble beginning, for sure. Very low budget, very low key, and very Canadian are three ways to describe this show, the first of the 'Degrassi' ventures. The cast is made up of regular kids, not professional actors (though they did of course get paid for their work here). The slickness and professionalism of the current 'Degrassi' series (see 'Degrassi: The Next Generation') is non-existent here, instead replaced with an earnestness and realism missing from most TV shows, past and present. So realistic at times that it gets a bit boring, but overall the show is fun, mainly because of the appealing cast. The actors/actresses have always been the heart and soul of the 'Degrassi' shows, and this is no exception.

Zoe Newman, Dawn Harrison and Allan Melusi starred in the pilot, a short film from 1979 called 'Ida Makes a Movie,' and all three returned two years later when that short was turned into 'The Kids of Degrassi Street.' Some later regulars include Neil Hope, Staci Mistysyn, John Ioannou, Christopher Charlesworth and Anais Granofsky went on to star in the second 'Degrassi' series, 'Degrassi (Junior) High.' Another latter day regular, Rachel Blanchard, is now a budding film actress. The rest of the kids have been relegated to "Where are they Now?" status, but live on in immortality in TKODS, which is available for purchase on video (two to three shows per video). If you're a fan of the current series, or were a fan of the show from the late 80's/early 90's, then this show is a must for your 'Degrassi' collection. It all stated here, folks.
