Does anyone else think Degrassi is he worst show ever made?

I was watching an episode earlier because there was nothing else on and a teenage girl had a cutting kit...i didnt even know that existed! Also they always have terrible previews like threesomes and sleeping wth eachother friends...i hate that its always on, its a disgrace!This is not reality high school is not this dysfunctional!

  • Degrassi is an institution. Although I've never watched it I remember it being the thing when I was in junior high (back in the late 80s/early 90s). I only ever saw a couple episodes. I just remember they burned down the junior high school, lol, and the one chick with the spikey hair had a baby at like 14 (which is one of the characters in the new show).

  • All of the episodes aren't like that. You just have to watch more than one to get it. The show is about the troubles that teenagers face. In one, Manny got pregnant while she was like 14 or 15 and had an abortion. Ellie cuts herself. Craig gets a cocaine addiction. Emma develops anorexia. Marco is gay. Jimmy got shot in the back and was paralyzed. Everybody cheats on everybody. It's a really good show if you have time to watch.

  • Ive seen the new one(the Next Generation) and its not as good as the Degrassi Jr High that was on when I was in jr high/high. I liked that one.

    This new one does tend to get pushy into things that arent necessarily issues you'll face in h.s.
