I tried and Gossip Girl, but I am a fan of the Degrassi franchise. From the original Junior High series with Voula, Stephanie Kaye, and Spike getting knocked up with Emma to the Next Generation, where we watched Emma and company completely screw up over and over. However, as I caught up with the Season 9 premier last night, I was incredibly disappointed. The original series and the revival with The Next Generation was created in response to shows like Beverly Hills, , where the wealthy teenaged characters were played by somethings. Degrassi was created to show a more realistic view of high school life, but sadly, the popularity of Gossip Girl and is altering Degrassi, and not for the better. Theme Song As always, the hour long season premier provides drama, new characters, and a new theme song.

He was first seen in the episode Pride 1 walking past Marco Del Rossi and Paige’s gay older brother Dylan, saying “Don’t drop anything in front of Homochuck,” unaware that Marco is also homosexual.

What did Degrassi become less tolerant in the last five years? We still don’t know Riley’s family situation. If anything, Riley can admit it but still doesn’t want to believe it. There are plenty of men and women who know they’re gay but almost refuse to show it because of their own personal opinions of gays, family reactions, peer pressure, etc.
Maybe he tries to think of himself as to be as masculine as possible, and doesn’t want to let anybody think otherwise. Also, Marco didn’t exactly have smooth sailing in school when it came to his sexuality. Linus and Jay, for starters.
