Very Impressed.
13 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I used to watch Degrassi on The-N almost everyday. I just began watching it again and i noticed that in season 5 Paige turns gay. It left me with an "OMG" expression on my face because well, she's probably the person you'd least expect. Then a friend of mine told me about South of Nowhere. I watched 1 episode and fell in love instantly. Not just with Spencer/Ashely but with the whole idea. I stayed up all night and watched the whole first season. People say I wouldn't even get the show because I'm only 12. But i understand it fully and I must say I am very impressed. It's nothing like I thought it would be. If you haven't seen it, then you should. Second season starts on September 29th and, they are already shooting season 3.
