    Anyone heard of it?

    Degrassi: The Next Generation continues the popular Degrassi franchise, and is preceded by Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High, as well as The Kids of Degrassi Street. Rather than do a show focusing just on the (now adult) characters, the creators decided to stay true to the original series and retain its focus on the issues and challenges of real teen life, bringing in a slew of new teen actors to star in the show. Several characters from the earlier series reprise their roles on DTNG as parents or teachers of the new students and have plot lines of their own which tend to intermix with the stories of the younger generation.

    Degrassi: The Next Generation details the lives of many different characters as they go through their high school years, and since the first season the characters have grown in many different ways. The show has dealt with many issues familiar to teenagers, such as body image, peer pressure, drug dealing, drug abuse: ecstasy, marijuana, prescription pills, ritalin, and cocaine, teen drinking, grades, college, stress, rape, child abuse, pedophilia, teen pregnancy, abortion, adoption and childbirth, sexuality, hate crimes, homophobia, puberty, cutting, death, school shootings, rumours, domestic violence, arrest, confession, infidelity, cancer, theft, mental illness, race relations, pornography, sex, oral sex, STDs, relationships, friendship, child molestation, pedophilia, dating, plastic surgery, religion, penis size, visible erections, poisoning, nocturnal emission, street racing, erectile dysfunction, exotic dancing, and school rivalry.

    In the first three seasons, the show's theme song is sung by a children's chorus. In seasons 4-5, the theme song is performed by Canadian industrial/pop group Jakalope. For season six, the theme song is remixed, and stripped of the vocals.

    :shock:
    Really?
    Maybe that's that thing that happens next week. Not sure.
    Is it the episode after the episode where Craig's a coke addict and TBS is on there? That was just on last night.

    I've been watching it since the old degrassi. I'm still watching it though, it's still pretty good except it airs on the night I work :(

    I can't believe JT was killed - it was so uncalled for in the story line. Oh well

    omg, that's what happened?
    When I was at home, I saw the last few episodes about Craig & his coke problem.
    & I saw the commercials for that episode.
    But now I'm back at school & I don't get Noggin here.
    So I couldn't actually watch it DX

    But, yea... I love this show.
    It's so outrageously dramatic & wonderful.

    Well one, that is highly uncalled for. Kill Ryan Cooley off. Gosh.

    Two, now that I know what happens, I have to watch it. They fuzzed out his face on the commercial :lol:

    I LOVE Degrassi! i just recently got into it via friend and I love it so far! Okay, just wanna know...

    Who here hates Manny and Darcy? I can't STAND Manny's attitude half the time. And the last episode I saw (I think it was old though) Darcy was doing those slutty pics on MySpace. That pisses me off. But I liked the episode actually...

    Oh my god! My firned told me about JT dying! Noooooooooo! Now Liberty's all alone!

    My two friends call my friend Owen Liberty cause he looks like the male her. It's...kinda weird...

    I <3 Craig! Whether he's a junkie or not, I still <33 him!!!

    Good show, but its getting sucky this season. Mostly because JT left! And Craig... well I'm not sure if he's completely gone...
    I seriously DO NOT want to watch Liberty kissing random guys, or Mia being annoying! What every happened to good ol' Palex?
