More Degrassi

I’m 2/3 of the way through season three of “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” and I can safely say this is the point when the series surpassed the original Degrassi shows. The abortion episode “Accidents Will Happen” – still unaired in the US – is many degrees sadder and more powerful than the Spike arc on DJH or the Heather (was it Heather or Erica?) arc on DH. And the foreshadowing you can see on these DVDs, with knowledge of what the characters will do over the next few years (Craig’s bipolar disorder, JT knocking up Liberty), really speaks to the talent of this writing staff.
