@branthog: soap opera for teens? why wouldn't it come back? I mean after 90210, dawson's creek, etc... they found an audience ready for it.
Yeah, but Degrassi isn't in the same league as those shows. Those shows, while pretty much crap (well, I don't know anything about Dawson's) are actual shows. Degrassi isn't so much a "soap opera for teens" as it is cheesey PBS, public school "after school special" programming, meant to teach you the woes of doing drugs, hanging out with "bad kids", getting pregnant, having an abortion, or multi-racial dating. I can understand why kids would watch it when they're forced to during class time, but it baffles me why anyone would willingly watch it (especially kids today, who seem a lot more sophisticated about their entertainment).
