Why DeGrassi Junior High might be annoying:

    It was the typical 'after school special.'
    The school's most popular rock band, 'The Zit Remedy,' only knew one song and lacked musical talent.
    Two episodes dealing with teen pregnancy and lesbianism were banned in the U.K.
    Director Kit Hood was unhappy when PBS cut part of an episode about abortion, and accused PBS of giving the episode 'an American ending, all happy and safe.'
    The students would call each other 'broomheads.'

Why DeGrassi Junior High might not be annoying:

    It tackled many teen issues, such as teen pregnancy, abortion, suicide, censorship, divorce, sex, shoplifting, and many others.
    It was syndicated to over 45 countries, and contained sub-titles in over 30 languages.
    The actors were not glamorized celebrities, instead they were actual schoolchildren that did not look like perfect, airbrushed models.
    Most of the child actors did not burn out like most child stars, instead they went on to lead more normal lives or to continue acting (some even act in the spin-off 'Degrassi - The Next Generation').
    It was one of the spin-offs of 'The Kids of DeGrassi Street,' along with 'DeGrassi High,' 'DeGrassi High the Next Generation,' 'DeGrassi Talks' and 'DeGrassi: School's Out.'
    The directors, writers, and family members of the actors occasionally made cameos in bit parts.
