I believe the last time I watched Degrassi was when Jimmy and Spinner opened a T-Shirt store or when Manny, Emma, and Liberty moved into their dorm (whichever one came last). I'm sitting here watching it now..and it's really bad. Like, really, really bad. It seems like they've run out of ideas and the cast is way too young looking. [B]and since when is Holly J nice?!?[/B]
I think season to answer your question about Holly J, since season 9
Degrassi's still one of my guilty pleasures, as it has been for the past decade. I like the new kids a lot, and I definitely welcomed them when one's Emma's grade graduated because their story lines were dragging. As for tonight's episode...it was farfetched no doubt. I never expect much out of special episodes like this, so it was just what I expected. I think the season will pick up. Besides, I don't think anything could ever be as bad a the Kevin Smith episodes in season 4. Like when Craig ran away from home. I shutter at the thought of them.

I even stopped watching it right around the time you did when Manny, Liberty, and Emma moved into their dorm. This show is just awful now in my opinion. I read that a year or two ago they actually aired it like a soap opera and had a new episode every day for thirty days......all I can say is big time overkill. This show was gold during the first 5 or 6 seasons but then it started to get worse with every season. Whenever I read an article about it or see a commercial it looks like they are just rehashing the same storyline over and over again (I saw a commercial and can't believe they are going to have ANOTHER shooting!) and that the only thing that changes is the acting gets worse. A lot worse.
I still love Degrassi but everything is rehashing and the main issue I have is the fact that everyone has to date someone that's not all what High School is about Season 10+ running for 45 episodes is an overkill but all the new character are reinventions of old ones,Eli is a mix of Craig and J.T plus he was named after Ellie. Alli and Manny mirror each other the list goes on also the fact that there like 20 something people but you see the same 10 just bothers me, I do like Holly J,Riley,Eli and Alli but that's about it. Fiona and Clare are also ok as well. Another thing Adam is gong to stop being such a complex character after this season,I mean there only two good storylines you can plug with a transgender person that's there love life and physical not saying FTM can be good characters but in Degrassi when your Sexual preference is not straight your storylines are only sexuality based.
I have to admit, they pick good songs for this episode [URL="http://youtu.be/nfYK8wvvU90"][url]http://youtu.be/nfYK8wvvU90[/url][/URL] this song is called dead heart by stars
Anyone else loved this season? Best season since well it might just be the best to me. But great storylines. Crazy good episode tonight.
I'm kinda ashamed to admit that I still watch degrassi as a grown adult. I love it! I've seen every episode since they started the next generation, I thought I would never grow to like the new people, but I always do. I can't imagine what it will be like without Holly J, but they always figure out a way.

Hey guys Degrassi is coming back to Teennick on Febuary 20th, oh I found something on youtube you might find funny [URL="http://youtu.be/i0go3eq0ZCM"][url]http://youtu.be/i0go3eq0ZCM[/url][/URL] anyhow, did anyone watch the no where to run episode? it was okay but I thought it could have been better . Also im sick of the battle of which couple is better aka the Pastery Wars of Eclaire and Cake
This is ****ed up.

Isn't Snake the only original cast member still making appearances? Very sad to hear about Wheels, though...

Is this show still on? I never see it anywhere anymore. I'm not sure I have seen it since Drake was on it.
It is still on. Teen Nick [I]just[/I] started airing a new season (or half season?) this week. I didn't pay much attention to the end of the last showing and have not watched the new episode yet.

Darcy truly was that bitch. She had everyone in that school triggered.

Paige & Handy J will forever be OG queen Bee's. Don't even @ me

I still cry @ the thought of JT. Truly had a bitch fucked up for DAYS. 

 

Manny was my motherfuckin bitch tho 

Omfg @ Clare becoming the main character lmao. I stopped watching after the Emma/Spinner wedding but I'm surprised she became the star until it was cancelled.

I loved everyone on the show not gonna lie. The only one I truly hated was Mia. Bitch how dare you date JT for like 2 weeks then try and take his shit after he died, that she belonged to Liberty ✌️✌️✌️
