If you know anything about Kevin Smith, you’re probably wise to his fascination with a little TV show in Canada called.
…Smith confessed, saying, “I used to work at this convenience store, and on Sunday mornings the only thing that kept me from gutting the customers in a sleepy rage was Degrassi Junior High.”
No, I didn’t know and wish I didn’t.
Degrassi is a Canadian television institution – a classic reincarnation of a 1980’s show called Degrassi Junior High which aired on CBC. It’s about a group of adolescents trying to get through school as they deal with typical growing up issues. For you Americans, it’s like Saved By The Bell with equally bad acting (I was going to write “worse acting”, but really – that’s unimaginable) but less commercialism; however, I still watched it way back when; it had a hint of honesty.
