it was my favourite guiltless pleasure in the 80's and the actress who played melanie was an incentive as well. she was from my hometown of saskatoon. the web site has loads of information for you degrassi fans.

Oh my, don't think I've seen an episode of this since the mid 90's. Has it really been that long?
I think I had an ambivalent attitude to the show - somehow I just found it scarily realistic, especially since the actors don't really look like actors. They are sort of very average looking compared to what is normal on North American shows, typically American.
But I do remember having somewhat of a crush on Caitlin... Can't believe she dumped Joey for Claude. Melanie was kind of cute as well, but she did have that moody, bitchy side to her!
Wheels was one of my favorite characters, but the writers turned him into a psychopath. He even blinded Lucy.
