The kids are alright
21 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The kids of degrassi street was an innocent, low budget program that set out to show kids in their natural habitat from home life to the playground.

Actors consisting of regular kids dealing with staying at the hospital over night by themselves, a new marriage, losing a young sibling And trying to impress the opposite sex.

Showing many regulars like Neil Hope who would become a fan favorite and perfect their trade before junior high began.

Different from other installments in the series, the kids version was more realistic, touchy feely and at times slow in pacing. I appreciate those qualities myself since most programming today flies by so quickly you never get to know the characters or care about the problem at hand.

In a way I found the latter eps drawing me in wishing that it could last for a few more seasons or at least keep the characters the same instead of changing who they are and their backgrounds for the new series on the horizon.

For degrassi fans its a must to own as this is where it all started and without the humble beginnings their would be no current show.

While the other is more well known in terms of popularity I find this simple series to be a relaxing slice of life that helps recapture your youth and won an award for children's programming.

Anyone who buys a copy even helps donate cash to PBS or so it claims on the box and helps the likes of Arthur, sesame street and Mr. Rogers live on forever.

So head out to the street and remember what being a kid is all about.
