** The same goes for Spencer [=MacPherson=] within the same season as well, especially his portrayal of [[spoiler: Hunter's anger problems after Goldi and the Feminist Club shut down the school's Gaming Club, triggering a breakdown up to the point where he stopped short of a school shooting, courtesy of Miles talking him down from it, in the mid-season finale [=#SorryNotSorry=].]]

** While he was never a bad actor, Eric Osborne really blew people away in season 15 [[spoiler: with how well he portrayed Miles' downward spiral, anxiety, drug abuse, and eventual attempts at recovery. Most people agreed he was the stand out from that season.]]

* ShipMates: After the season 14 finale movie, many fans got behind the idea of "the Holy Trinity", consisting of Zig/Maya, Grace/Zoe, and Tristan/Miles. Aside from liking those couples, many fans like how 2/3 of the couples are same-sex and also how the three couples being together could end the LoveDodecahedron that had consumed most of season 13 and 14 and focus more on the six characters being friends.

** In season 8, Johnny (who was 17, almost 18) dated Alli (who was 14) and had sex with her. This wasn't treated any differently than any other Degrassi relationship, but in the U.S. (where the age of consent is 18 in most states; in Canada consent age was raised to 16 in 2008 from ''14'') this would've been seen as more problematic. ** Addressed in season 13, where Drew (age 18) has sex with Zoe (age 15). Zoe's mother angrily brings up statutory rape, but Simpson tells her that it actually isn't because of the "close in age" laws. Drew having sex with her was still portrayed as a shady thing to do, but it wasn't rape. (For the record, the "close in age" laws state that someone who is 14 or 15 can consent to sex with someone up to 5 years older than them. Canada's age of consent is 16, at which point that person can consent to sex with people of any age as long as they are not in a position of power.)

You also cannot consent to sex of any kind with someone in a position of power over you until you are 18.

** Miles in general. He spends much of his time on the show going from relationship to relationship with his girlfriends and boyfriend blaming each other instead of him when it all goes wrong. Some of his actions include: nearly cheating on Maya with ex-girlfriend, Zoe, pointing a fake gun at his romantic rival's head knowing full well that his behavior already frightens Maya, attempting to hook up with Maya while seeing Zoe, outing his own relationship with Tristan and making him feel used and that's only the half of it. The fact that he doesn't apologize for these things hasn't exactly endeared him to some fans..

The fact that he doesn't apologize for these things hasn't exactly endeared him to some fans..fans. Despite his behavior, all three of Miles's exes have been shown to pine for him once their relationships ended as he bounced back by entering a new relationship.

He later demanded forgiveness and called her a psycho when she attempted to test his fidelity. Needless to say, most fans jumped ship during this season.

* RetroactiveRecognition: You know Aubrey Graham, the kid who plays Jimmy? No? Turn on the radio, and wait for a {{Drake}} song to come on. Yep. Jimmy got out of his wheelchair and started rapping. Huh.
