Trivia

The filming schedule for Degrassi took place between April to November (with a two-week summer break in the middle). The schedule was set up that way, so the actors would miss the least amount of school. Since the show was filmed during the summer, most of the characters wear summer clothing throughout the series. Even in episodes that took place in the middle of the school year, many of the characters are walking around in shorts. See more »

Goofs

Characters are shown speaking at the corner of Degrassi St. and Pape Ave (as indicated by the street sign). These streets run parallel and are about 10 blocks away from each other. See more »

I grew up year to year with this show
7 October 2005 | by knifeintheeyeSee all my reviews

OK, lets get this out of the way. I'm 30 years old at the time of this review. I was in grade 6 when Degrassi junior high started. I remembered Degrassi Street from Sunday morning, and hated it--I was not about to like this show. Little by little throughout the year, I was hooked. By the time I graduated high school I had spent 6 years with this kids. Second item. The acting was terrible! Even as a kid, I knew it, but that was part of the success of the show. These were regular thirteen year old drama student acting as thirteen year old kids dealing with issues. Some of the actors went on to act in other shows, movies etc..., some did not. Others posts have mentioned that this may be the best show ever to come out of Canada, and that may be true...sadly. This is not M*A*S*H though. This is not high drama. This was a show that captured the moment precisely. It caught the correct vibe of the time. I don't know if it has aged well since it first aired and I don't care. This show, even if you couldn't directly relate to a single character, was bang on, on what was going on at school at the time. I may not have had Wheels, Snakes or Joeys problems, but they were my classmates. I watched them year after year, for years. No class trips to Australia, no Rolls Royces, no mansions, no rich daddies. Just real issues, year after year. Thank you, for those years. Long live Zit Remedy.
