    The first time I watched this show, I thought... "Okay, Sam doesn't have a meal plan... That's the best drama this show could stir up?! Surely the creator of Degrassi must have put no effort into this show what so ever..." But then when John died it started to get interesting. I really liked the brewing Sam/Devon relationship and I was looking forward to seeing what would happen. Then, I missed an episode and I found that I couldn't help myself and I just had to watch the episode I missed on that channel's site. It got better and better each week. Now it's to a point where it's become one of my favorite shows of the 2007 season. The characters are interesting, the storylines are interesting, and I just can't help but watch. I thought this show was going to be a disaster, but I've seen many people who have had a change of heart, just like I did. I've seen the show's Show Score slowly creep from 5.4 all the way to 9.0. There is no doubt that this show has something and I hope it comes back for a second season.moreless

    This show is just incredible. The characters are realistick and very three demensional! This show has strong topics, such as Molesting, Drinking, Abuse, Drugs, Lesbiansm, Careers, Teacher Student Relationships, and Death. The main character is espcially put through a lot, with being a foster child her whole life. I hate that Teenick cancelled the show. They hate to have anything compete with precious DEGRASSI. This show tops Degrassi in a lot of ways. Season 2 was toned down a lot, but still had strong episodes. Mostly everything centered around love situations, but the episodes were still pretty good. Overall, one of the best teen/young adult shows during its time.moreless

To anyone who have not seen this series yet, I guess you try watching it because it that good.moreless
  • TBY!It is the best show on the-n....besides Degrassi.

    9.8
    Okay. I think this show might even be better than Degrassi! I know it is a bold statement, but so ture. I heard it is coming back for a new season THANK GOD!!! I really need to see more of this show. The-N is always trying to get rid of their great shows and replace them with stupid ass tween shows or old sitcom shows from Nickelodeon. I mean they are gettin rid of SON and IS....what the hell. And what happened to About a Girl, Old School Degrassi, and Whilstler???? I wish I lived in Canada. But I know I better see this back on the N very soon...I miss this show it made me feel like it was better than every show ever....moreless
  • Love this show

    I don't think I watched this show from the start but it was pretty easy to catch up with. I like Sam with Trent better than Devon, because Trent is SO hott and sexy and she can turn him straight (as in off the drugs) and thats what he wants. He has let her down again and again but I think he's worth the wait till he gets himself out of the hole he got himself into and he is willing to do that. Devon just wasn't my type. And I love Noah, he is so funny! It's a great show and I can't wait to see if it comes back onto our screens because it wasn't watched that much over here. Hopefully it will be back though!!!moreless
