What The Hell is Happening on ‘Degrassi: TNG’?

Fun fact: I used to be totally obsessed with Degrassi: The Next Generation. I moderated a Degrassi message board, I downloaded the episodes illegally before they aired in the states, I knew who Drake was before his character was even in a wheelchair and I avidly remember when Spike and Snake finally got together.

Obviously a part of me was excited when I saw the preview today for the ELEVENTH season of show (this show has been on for like, 30+ years at this point, huh?) but then I realized… I have no freakin’ idea who any of these kids are. I don’t know their story lines (isn’t one of them transgendered or something?) and I don’t care about them.

I know they couldn’t have let poor Emma give blowjobs in the back of vans until she was 25 or anything, but doesn’t it suck to see how this show totally morphs every 3 years or so? How are we supposed to shut the door on these characters? Anyone care to explain to me in the comments what’s going on?

I still totally ship Cranny, BTW.

  • Don’t get me wrong, I miss Emma and slutty Manny and Spinner and Paige and that whole cast, but the show is still entertaining and worth watching. Especially if you’ve enjoyed it in the past

  • I totally agree with you, Molls. No fucking clue who these kids are. I tuned out when Emma, Manny, Jimmy, and the gang checked out.

    Fun fact: When I was in high school, I won a Degrassi: TNG messenger bag from CTV. I rocked that thing hard.

  • Reminds me of the Skins UK trailers. I’ve missed the entire season. I have no clue what went on aside from Holly being sick.

  • Boom. Jimmy and Ashley. Gold. When Craig, Spinner, Marco and Jimmy had the band? My god, the best times. Why can’t Paige be a bitch forever and why can’t we always have that asian teacher yelling? Oh Degrassi
