i grew up in a house with very strict tv rules, so my crew were the good old kids of degrassi st. the kids were wholesome, yet realistic, and they all reportedly styled themselves before every show, just to add extra authenticity. they tackled issues that real kids were experiencing, and every once in a while, they threw in a real hot button societal issue just to stir things up.

im embarassed to admit that my room mate got me watching TNG and ive been fuming because they ruined my show!!!!!! instead of picking real characters, you have glossy looking actors who look like they spent hours in a stylists chair and are wearing clothes and hair extensions that cost more than my car. joey had to walk through the cafeteria naked to get his crappy car, yet these kids just all have brand-new cars?? and they go to bars??in our old teen angst shows, the only time characters went to a club was when the episode revolved around the fake id's and the eventual inevitable catching by parents. now they dont even take the time to explain how highschool kids got into a frikking CLUB!!!! oh, my bad, i guess we're supposed to deduce for ourselves that they were just so beautiful and charming, it was no problem. and it's like they want to cover every controversial issue in each episode. like jumping from AIDS one episode to stem cell research the next?! WTF?! what happened to multiple-episode arcs?? and now they see how much buzz the Hills has so they're putting all the chicks in an American university and one character is a fashion intern after having no related experience? characters getting engaged before graduation with a $5,000 ring?! i liked this show back in the day because it was relatable and i could definitely identify with the things that happened to the characters, but now i watch it and it's like 90210, a far-fetched soap opera with a bunch of 20-somethings playing highschool kids with VERY stiff dialogue. i hope your new-found american audience treats you well, because you probably will lose your Canadian one.

no longer a fan..
