I have a theory that children will learn everything — and more — that they need to know about middle school and high school if they watch Degrassi regularly. I have no actual numbers to back this up, but believe me, it’s true.
For you smart people who watch Degrassi, there’s good news: All new episodes starting Monday July 18th!
In case you didn’t know, Teen Nick and Degrassi like to get a little nifty in the summer. Remember The Boiling Point? This summer is no different. The first episode will be a one-hour spring break special. After that, Teen Nick will be airing a new episode of Degrassi four nights a week at 9 p.m. until September 1st! Can you handle that?!
Overall, I’m dying of excitement, especially following this trailer:
Ah, Degrassi, so dramatic! I love how they showed me nothing, but the intense music got me excited.
The only problem I can find is with the new theme song that accompanies the opening credits. Yes, it’s the same song. Sure, a singer-songwriter named Alexz Johnson sings it. But I’m not feeling it. A little too techno. Check it out here:
Personally my favorite rendition was the version that came with season 3 (which is the same as seasons 4 and 5, only sung by a different artist). Plus, nothing will ever top Marco jumping around to show his Degrassi jacket to the camera!
