Awwww, I remember watching DH as a kid. Then one day a teacher popped in a tape of DJH and I went into shock. I had no idea the show wen tback so far.
Well, not to knock your socks off, but actually before Degrassi Junior High
there was also a show called The Kids of Degrassi Street
, also shot here in Toronto, and starring many of the same actors who went on to do DJH
, and even DTNH
, although as I recall some of the characters had different names. Like Stacie Mistysyn, who plays Caitlin on DJH
was named "Lisa" on the earlier show.
Ha, ha, it is so funny remembering all of these episodes. I think the one where Stephanie runs for pres ("All the way with Stephanie Kaye!") is the first episode I ever watched. As far as the band goes, though, I always remembered ti as "Zit RemedY", or did it start out as something different and then morph into that later?
I loved Joey and Caitlin. Didn't Caitlin break up with Joey over some weird guy named Claude?
I thought they broke up in part because Joey failed grade eight or nine, staying behind while Caitlin moved on to the next grade, and partly because Joey wanted sex while Caitlin wanted to wait. But I may be mistaken. Claude did show up for awhile, and Caitlin was all into him because he was all existential and tortured in a black-beret poet kind of way. But he was also depressed and as I recall he offed himself later that season.
