Degrassi: Next Class follows the lives of the students from Degrassi Community School, a fictional high school in Toronto. It is the fifth series in the Degrassi franchise. The series covers issues such as mental illness, homophobia, racism, drug use, feminism, sexuality, religion, life threatening diseases, online harassment, and dysfunctional families.
This has to be one of the most annoying things I have ever watched. The shows intentions were good, trying to teach young people about different social issues (which is the only reason I gave it two stars instead of one) but I mean COME ON THIS IS JUST CRINGEWORTHY.
I just finished high school two years ago so I know what it looks like this day in age and I have never met a person there that comes even close to one of the characters in Degrassi Next Class. I mean they are so easily offended by basically everything and the way the creators try to teach you about social issues is just so in your face and obvious you only get annoyed. Try to be a little more subtle about it, you want someone to watch an episode and really think about it afterwards but in this show you can almost finish the characters sentences. That's how predictable it is!
Also if you happen not to agree with the point of view of gays, Muslims, feminists or any other group of people you are immediately a horrible excuse for a human being. This is so wrong because teens should be able to develop their own perspective on such things without someone shoving political correctness down their throats like that.
The show had a good idea and turned it into a complete mess which is a shame because Degrassi Next Generation was a cult classic and a lot of people (including me) grew up watching it. You won't find any trace of that good old Degrassi in this show.
