I could wax poetic about the importance of Degrassi for hours: while the show definitely provides lots of juicy drama, tweetable moments, and shippable couples (EClare 4ever), it also discusses very serious problems in a manner that teenagers can digest. The show has tackled teen issues like eating disorders, STDs, sexual assault, and pregnancy, and uses real-world problems as the inspiration behind its episodes. It continues to stay relevant with its audience, and perhaps will be able to do so even more now that the show has moved from airing on TeenNick to streaming new episodes on Netflix.
Plus, it also provided us with amazing moments like this one:So, yeah: watch Degrassi on YouTube right this second.
