Do you guys like the new season (boiling point) or the old degrassi with Emma, Manny & ETC?
I personally prefer the old Degrassi ! Where shit actually happened ! Who are you're favorite characters? Tell me what you think!
So let me give you a run down of the old cast:
Emma - She suffered from anorexia nervousa and is an environmental freak. She’s bff’s with Manny, but they have a huge fight every other episode. She had a gun pointed at her by Rick, a creepy kid that was accidentally killed when he brings a gun to school. She hooks up with Jay and gets gonorrhea because she is “super duper messed up”. She dated Peter, even though he recorded Manny’s drunken boob exposure tape, and framed Sean with drugs. She dated Sean multiple times until he goes away to the army and tells him she can’t wait for him anymore. She goes off to college, falls in love with her roommate. He ditches her on a bike trip. When she comes back from the bike trip, she burns down the Dot, marries Spinner and disappears from the face of the Earth.
Darcy - Jesus freak. She is new to Degrassi when she starts dating Spinner. She converts him, then posts promiscuous pictures of herself online for Spirit Squad money from a creepy man. Her and Spinner break up, and she starts dating Peter, who took the pictures for the creepy man. They go to the mountains one weekend where Darcy gets raped, throws her Chasity ring away, gets clamidia and becomes suicidal. When life gets to be too much for her, she goes off to Kenya.
Marco - The gay guy. He dated Ellie, broke up with her when she figured out he was gay, and then used her to hide his homosexuality. Eventually, he came out to his dad, and the rest of the world, while doing a Shakespeare play. He dates Dillon, gets cheated on, and breaks up with him. He dates a couple more people before going back to Dillon, but then Dillon leaves Canada for hockey. Marco falls into a gambling addiction and then recovers by the next episode.
JT - Liberty’s love, and the school mascot. JT loses his virginity to Liberty, and succeeds in impregnating her. JT gets a respectable job at a pharmacy to pay for his baby’s diapers, but ends up stealing Oxycontin and selling it to druggies. When He realizes it’s wrong, he takes the pills and OD’s. Later, when he recovers, he becomes upset with Liberty during her pregnancy and breaks up with her, but is still there. JT becomes upset with the discussion to give their child up for adoption, so he dates Mia, who had a child at 13. During a party, he realizes he loves Liberty, and then gets killed.
Manny - As Darcy likes to call her, “school’s biggest slut”. Manny has dated Craig, JT, Spinner, Craig while he was dating Ashley, Craig while he was a crack addict, some Lakehurst guy, a fake engaged Jay, her creepy professor, and then Jay. She was impregnated by Craig when she lost her virginity and gets an abortion, which makes Craig go crazy. Her boobs were exposed online by Peter when she gets drunk at a party after getting kicked out of her parents’ house for wanting a boob job. She’s an aspiring actress, who lands a part in Jay and Silent Bob Go Canadian, Aye. She then dates a weird, controlling professor in college, who tells her she’s a failure. She then goes to LA and lands the leading roll in Jay Mews’ “Mewsical High”. She is for real engaged with Jay, and is partially responsible for Spinner and Emma’s drunk wedding, as she suggested they go to Niagara Falls. Oh, she also beats up Jane, which is funny, no mater who you are.
Liberty - An awkward know it all. She is valedictorian of her class, president of many student leadership clubs and dyslexic when it comes to numbers. She has always been in love with JT. When they finally end up dating, she gets pregnant. Liberty goes through with the pregnancy, but gives the baby up for an open adoption. The new parents move away and she gets drunk. JT breaks up with her, and she can’t let go. At her giant birthday bash, she calls him out on still loving her, and then he dies. After she dies, she finds out JT still loved her and goes to college with Emma and Manny. She tries to join a sorority in college, but realizes they only want her because she’s black. She succeeds in college, only making a small appearance at Emma and Spinners wedding.

Jay - Jay was the ultimate bad boy of Degrassi. He dated Alex for a while. In this time, he did drugs, drank, stole. He had gonorrhea and gave it to Alex and Emma. He was best friends with Sean, but that changed when Sean moved back in with his parents. He then became best friends with Spinner, which changed when Spinner found the lord. Him and Alex broke up when she finds out she was a lesbian. He dates other people that he cries about while high in Marco, Ellie and Paige’s apartment. He agrees to pretend to be engaged to Manny so that her parents will let her go off to college, but ends up falling in love with her and giving her his dead mother’s ring. She pawns it to visit his parents, only to find out it’s a big lie. When he steals the ring back, she dumps him for being the “same old Jay”. They get back together when he goes to Hollywood, and they plan on getting married one day, but they kind of disappeared.

He graduates with high marks and disappears.
Derrek - Derrek was Danny’s best friend. He was adopted when he was little, and this upsets Liberty. He’s kind of a jerk, and this only continues when he starts playing football. He becomes a sexist, and his story line pretty much dies after that.
