The Dos And Don'ts Of Drama, With Degrassi: Abandon The Freaks!

In “Underneath It All, Part 1,” it’s all about starting over in the fall semester: Fiona wants a fresh start and makes new friends who don’t know about her rehab stay; Clare and Jake might be ready for sex, but she has to consult a magazine to be sure; and Maya gets embroiled in the drama with Tori, Tristan, and Zig on her very first day.

The Dos and Don'ts of Drama, with Degrassi: Pre-Prom Lacks the Sex and Death of the Real One

For some reason, in high-school world graduation comes before prom — usually because more interesting shit goes down when characters are in their prom dresses as opposed to caps and gowns.

Kudos to Degrassi for not getting all “after-school special” on Adam’s transgender storyline. Last season he got beaten up for his “weirdness,” but the emotional bullying he’s run into in this episode alone is probably more disturbing than any hallway fight. Dave, who’s not that prejudiced, decides that he’s freaked out by sharing a radio show and a bathroom with Adam; he continually refers to Adam as a girl or a freak, and mocks him on-air. Dave really knows how to keep this show interesting. More »
