Kevin Smith Likes Bad Canadian Television

Kevin Smith Appears For ‘Degrassi’ Finale:

…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.

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.

  1. Degrassi: The Next Generation is even better than the original(s). Whenever I happen to catch, I always enjoy it. Kevin Smith has good taste.

  2. Actually, Aaron Spelling tried to buy the rights to Degrassi Junior High. When the producers wouldn’t sell, he started his own little show called Beverly Hills 90210.
