The series covers issues such as mental illness, homophobia, racism, drug use, feminism, sexuality, religion, life threatening diseases, online harassment, and dysfunctional families.Here the only ones who really had any after effects were Maya and Tristan. I need to give another special shout to the runner up for MVP of the season, Yael.Maya’s depression would have been worsened by any number of things and Tristan could have been hit by a car or something. While Lola tempered some of her humor, Yael brings it in full force.The moment she decides to watch porn with the other guys was a comedic work of gold and her reaction was pitch perfect.Plus the imagery with the ruler flopping over was gold.Before she had been more the funny character and slightly wide eyed about the world.Now she’s more down to Earth, really going through some tough times. Unlike last season where the plots felt a little all over the place, this season is able to weave the plotlines in and out of each other. I love that having this completely tragic backstory doesn’t change the fact she’s still a dick to people. Just because you have some kind of trauma doesn’t excuse your actions to others.
is so good and if you aren’t watching it just because you don’t like soap operas, I’d check it out anyway. Plus, it actually tackles hard hitting topics in thought provoking ways.
I can see many teenagers getting into this, but its quite disheartening to see such blatant feminism PSA spread all over the show.
The pacing and character development is nothing of any other degrassi show before it. This happen and end all in the course of an episode with the underlying tone of a teenage written progressive liberalism script.
Rasha being a refugee for Syria is a great way of taking a now standard coming out plot and putting a unique spin on it.
#Schemers4LYFE This season is so chocked full of great moments I can’t go over all of them.
