* DisproportionateRetribution: Eli and Fitz both may be the show's best example of this. Eli insults Fitz over a parking spot. Fitz takes this out on Eli's car. Fitz attacks Adam for the same slight against him before, Eli steps in to shift focus back to him. Leading to a very insincere attempt at peace, getting Eli a [[GroinAttack knee to the groin]]. Eli gets Fitz arrested over all that. Fitz can't accept that Adam wants to be treated like a guy, leading to a fight. Eli gets Fitz in trouble for something Fitz didn't do. To try to get peace Clare agrees to go out with Fitz. Eli undermines this with poison, and Fitz gets a knife. At any point Fitz could stop being insane, or Eli could just let it go. But the pair are [[NotSoDifferent too pigheaded and egotistical to ever consider this]]]].

''Degrassi'' is notable for a few reasons. The show is one of the few exceptions to DawsonCasting; the teenage characters are almost all played by actual teenagers, and they're very good actors, lately coming to the series with [[OnlySoManyCanadianActors years of experience in other TV productions, often alongside each other]]. And despite the famed {{Anvilicious}}-ness of the show, some of the lessons taught by the show [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped are]] ''[[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped really]]'' [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped important for the teenage audience]]. Degrassi is usually cited as one of the few "earnest" {{Teen Drama}}s and the show has won a Peabody in 2011 for the portrayal of Adam, the first regular [[{{Transsexual}} transgender]] character in the history of teen television. It's also one of the few teen dramas to be nominated for an Emmy two years in a row (in 2011 and 2012). And ''Degrassi'' has a very teenage morality -- meaning that a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop is as common as a straight one.

In 2015, [=TeenNick=] ended their broadcast of Degrassi after 14 seasons, with [[Creator/{{MTV}} MTV Canada]] following suit. In 2016, Degrassi moved to the Family Channel in Canada (whose corporate parent, DHX Media, bought Epitome Pictures the production company behind ''Degrassi'' in 2014), and will also stream on Creator/{{Netflix}} with 20 new episodes. This incarnation is titled ''Series/DegrassiNextClass'', and stars many of the newer characters introduced through seasons 11-14 and marks the third time in the show's history that the cast completely turned over and the first season where no main character has a link with either the 1980s cast or the Next Generation cast.
