-> ''"Canadians have always been innovators, and this show was a trend-setter. There would be no BeverlyHills90210 Series/BeverlyHills90210 if Degrassi Junior High hadn't done it first with [[HotterAndSexier poorer, uglier kids.]]"''



When it first aired, the show was ground-breaking for dealing with these hot topics without censorship or neat happy endings; it became a cult hit in America via Creator/{{PBS}}. The most notable American fan was one Creator/KevinSmith, who later achieved his life's dream of romancing the character Caitlin (the same character he named Caitlin Bree in ''{{Clerks}}'' after) in ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration''. (There are persistent rumors that Creator/AaronSpelling wanted to license an American version of ''Degrassi'', but couldn't get the rights, so he created ''BeverlyHills90210'' instead.) After all the shows that have come since, it doesn't look very daring. Most notably, it treats gays sympathetically, but doesn't dare have a gay main character or even a gay recurring character; guest stars have to do. (The current ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' series, as of Season 12, has had multiple gay, lesbian, and bi main characters and even a trans main character.) There are also several dated moments that were plausible for 1980s teens, but are bizarre now, like when TheDitz hears about anorexia for the first time and wishes she had it.

* FakeAmerican: Simon who was supposed to be from New York -- the actor didn't even attempt an accent.



* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The shows producers intentionally avoided references to then current pop culture or celebrities. All of the songs and bands were created for the show. Any TV shows, movies, or celebreties mentioned were fictional (such as Soap Opera actor Damon King). Neverthless, the shows pacing, 80s style music, hairstyles, fashion, and Mr. Raditch's mustache have dated it.
