Degrassi: The Next Generation

Holden: So, uh, what do you wanna do tonight?
Banky: I dunno. Get a pizza, watch "Degrassi Junior High".
Holden: You got a weird thing for Canadian melodrama.
Banky: I got a weird thing for girls who say "aboot".
-- Chasing Amy

Oh, don't we all? As a rabid fan of Degrassi Junior High, I was, shall we say, stoked, to hear of the existence of Degrassi: The Next Generation (not to be confused with this spinoff franchise) and even more giddy to see this lavish article in the NYT Magazine this weekend. A teen show starring actual teens! That teens like to watch! A TiVo Season Pass for the series has been set, you can be sure.
