Degrassi Junior High “Eggbert” (part 1 of 5)
Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends! Seriously, Degrassi never ends. Degrassi: The Next Generation is currently in its tenth [!] season and shows no signs of ending soon. And did you know the show is now airing new episodes four freaking days a week? I was barely keeping up with once a week installments in the lives of characters I don’t give a crap about. As someone who’s ravenously consumed everything they’ve slapped the Degrassi brand name on for years now, I never thought I’d say this, but… I think I’m done with Degrassi.
The new episodes, I mean. As you can probably tell by the existence of the recap you are currently reading, I’ve decided to return my attention to the series that started it all (well, technically, the series that came after the series that started it all), Degrassi Junior High. It’s been a long nine months since I last recapped this show, but there’s a very good reason for that. Basically, I needed the time off to absorb all the difficult lessons I learned in season one, as well as recover from the trauma. But luckily for you DJH fans, I’m back to endure new trauma as I recap the most beloved teen drama ever made! …In Canada. Between the years of 1987 and 1989. Of all time!
