It’s my solemn belief that “Degrassi: The Next Generation” is one of the most entertaining shows on TV. Don’t dispute me. It’s like “The O.C.,” except the kids actually spend their days at school, they have horrifying teenage problems (as opposed to rock star/supermodel problems) and they live in the dullest place on earth.* But I’m finally watching through season three on DVD, and I have to say that the addition of Daniel Morrison as the cool DJ kid, Chris, is as close to a shark-jumping as you can get without a motor boat and pair of skis.
