    I will continue to buy the Degrassi dvds as long as there is Degrassi however this season was a dissapoinment. The series does go back and forth between the graduates (Paige, Marco, Ellie) and the seniors (Liberty, Emma) however there are a bunch of newer characters being introduced that I cannot garner interest for.

    Time to skip to the NEXT next generation?, July 21, 2009

    I’ve been a die hard Degrassi fan since Mr. Simpson was a student – in other words, since the original series, which tells you I’m much older than the target audience ;) However, I watched the first 5 seasons with as much enthusiasm as I did when Snake and I were both in junior high school. The young actors from those seasons (particularly Lauren Collins as Paige – her character has developed wonderfully over the course of the series) are marvelous – and look like REAL kids, not models – and the storylines are topical and interesting. But now that the first crop of 7th and 8th graders have passed through the newly combined Degrassi Community School (junior AND senior high), they’ve taken the best of the show with them. Maybe it’s just that Paige, Spinner, Emma, Manny, Craig, Ashley, Jimmy, Marco et al were so good, the new kids just don’t measure up for me. I just don’t find any of them likeable or interesting. We’re also seeing a lot of the same storylines from the early seasons rehashed in the later ones. Paige was raped, now Darcy is. Emma was the victim of an online stalker, now we have Darcy again in the same situation. Marco struggled with his sexuality, now Peter does. There are even elements of the original Degrassi Junior High thrown in, like teenage mom Spike in the first series and teenage mom Mia in the new one. The scenes played at DCS just aren’t fresh and interesting anymore. Much more watchable are the scenes with the graduates in the university housing, but those are tapering off, and though I haven’t seen more than an episode or two of Season 8, I hear that most of the original cast is virtually gone. Such a shame. Maybe it’s time to end the show and resurrect it 10 years from now, with Mia’s daughter Isabella starring in the NEXT next generation? :)

    Degrassi Season 7 DVD Boxset is a good buy, it’s a little different from the previous releases due to the fact that it’s released from Echo Bridge Entertainment this time around.

    All 24 Episodes from the 7th season are uncut and in great quality.
    Bonus features include Bloopers, Deleted Scenes, Commentary, Photo Gallary, Webisodes and Documentaries!!

    This is a great buy and worth it for any hard core Degrassi Fan!!
