Feeling Meme-ish: <i>Degrassi</i>

Slut shaming, STDs, school shootings, drug addiction—these are just a few of the many plot points Degrassi has taken us on. Like Star Trek, Degrassi continues to have generations—except in this TV series, the focus is on students coming of age in the halls of a Toronto high school. The show’s first installment ran in the early ‘80s, but it is perhaps most famous for Degrassi: The Next Generation of the 2000s. The show produced a good deal of breakout stars, most notably Drake, who played Jimmy Brooks, the rich kid who loved to rap and ended up in a wheelchair after a school shooting. Die-hard fans and those of us who couldn’t resist this soapy, guilty pleasure, can continue on with Degrassi: Next Class on Netflix, and these hilarious memes and gifs.
