What the world needs now is more shows like Degrassi
It's so neat to read the reviews from the United States, because I thought that it never went beyond the 49th parallel!
Part of Degrassi's strength was that it was so low budget. The non-slickness of it was very refreshing. They played the same Gowan song at every party... I believe the song was called "High Fashion Model". Anyway, It was nice to see realistic characters living in realistic homes with realistic parents.
Two fave episodes: The condom dispenser episode, and the episode in which Snake, Wheels and Joey attempt to gain entry to a strip joint.
Degrassi really was very valuable for talking about Issues Facing Teens.
Long live Degrassi in our hearts and in reruns on CBC!
