Nov/2017

Hi Bryan Here….

I remember watching Degrassi growing up way back when it first started.  It has changed quite a bit in its 10th season but the core of the stories are still there.  I remember when Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes (Jay and Silent Bob) got involved with the Degrassi franchise.  This 10th season had 44 episodes and was previously known as Degrassi: The Next Generation but dropped ‘The Next Generation’ part for this 10th season.  This was quite fun to watch, but I’d imagine teens and pre teens would enjoy it more than I did.

THE SERIES

This 10th season follows the lives of a group of high schoolers ages 16-18, as they deal with all the highs and lows of being a teen at high school.  This includes: alcohol, parties, drugs, bullies, dates, sex, and rock n’ roll.  This season doubled the order of episodes and aired new episodes a few days a week for the first 24 or so episodes.  I wish networks did that for some of my favorite shows.   Below is a breakdown of each episode.

THE AUDIO/VISUAL

The series is presented in 1.78:1 widescreen aspect ratio and looks pretty good.  It’s on DVD so it is not 1080p, but the picture is still clear and the movements and the shading are almost top notch.  A little bit of noise here and there but overall a nice video presentation.  The audio is about the same as the video.  It”s good, but this is not a high octane action series, so the sound is not “blow your house down” loud.  The dialogue is clear and crisp and the score and music sounds robust.

THE EXTRAS

– Music Videos

– Bloopers

– Commentaries on  select episodes

– Numerous webisodes

THE ULTIMATE WORD

Degrassi will always hold a special place in my heart.  This new era of Degrassi isn’t for me, but for people in their teens and pre-teens will definitely love it since it speaks to heir generation as did the Degrassi did for me when I was growing up.  The audio/video is great quality being that it is on DVD and the extras are really good.  If you are a fan of Degrassi and were born after 1990 then you will like this series.
