Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The immediate sequel to Degrassi Junior High, and the show that solidly transformed the Degrassi series into a full Soap Opera. This series lasted from November, 1989 to January, 1991. A total of 28 episodes in two seasons.Most of the episodes focused on the day-to-day problems of being a teen, such as bargaining for more freedom from your parents, preparing for life after graduation, and (especially) the perils and pitfalls of No Going Steady. Every few episodes, a monster problem would hit, like AIDS, a kid running away from home, and so on. However, the cast were such a Dysfunction Junction that the day-to-day episodes could feel almost as soap-opera and dramatic as the heavy-hitter ones. Without exception, every single storyline had a follow-up later.Like the rest of the Degrassi franchise, the series was intended as a tool for teaching teens about "hot-button" issues like abortion and AIDS. In many ways, it serves as a bridge between the individual episode focus of Degrassi Junior High and the sprawling Soap Opera of Degrassi: The Next Generation. But in spite of that, it was far more continuity-heavy than Degrassi: The Next Generation, with its Three Month Rule and Heel–Face Revolving Door.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })At its best, Degrassi High turned Loads and Loads of Characters into True Companions with a bond so real you could taste it, and a school that felt more real than almost any other on TV. It still has a ton of die-hard fans who love it like Star Trek fans love their continuity. At its worst, it could be frustrating stew of too many Spear Carrier characters and repetitive romantic subplots, made worse by regular Retcon. The most striking innovation of the show was that all characters had Soap Opera adventures even when the camera wasn't on them, and time visibly passed each episode — which made everything fit together, but also meant a ton of Second-Hand Storytelling.The series ended with a Grand Finale movie, School's Out, which caused an outcry by going Darker and Edgier than anything Degrassi (or almost any other teen show) had done at the time, with tons of Fanservice (from actors who were real teenagers), drugs and alchohol, sex scenes, and characters turning very unpleasant. Most notable was using real cursing in a show that had never had it before — one foul-mouthed line became an instant Memetic Mutation. Like many Darker and Edgier shows, fans tend to either love it or hate it. (Of course, compared to Degrassi: The Next Generation it feels almost quaint in a lot of ways — and yet, still Darker and Edgier in others.)Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The series was followed up with Degrassi Talks, a documentary special where Degrassi actors interviewed people for real stories of drug addiction, domestic abuse, etc. interspersed with relevant clips from the show.

Former Child Star: Real Life example: of the show's actors who stayed in acting, most were hopelessly type-cast. A few of them even ended up playing the same characters on Degrassi: The Next Generation; although this would likely fall under Casting Gag. Luckily, with the exception of Neil Hope, none of them really went down a destructive path.

Adult Fear
 Degrassi High / int_46118dc5
comment
Adult Fear: a curious example in that none of the people involved are technically adults. In "Crossed Wires" when Liz confides in Spike about being sexually abused as a child, Spike is quick to reassure her it wasn't her fault, as she was just a little kid. Her eyes and the camera then wander over to her toddler daughter Emma, happily playing in a kiddy pool. Spike says nothing, but it's not hard to tell what she's thinking.note Much Harsher in Hindsight after Emma is groomed online by a pedophile and subjected to Attempted Rape in the first episode of Degrassi: The Next Generation.

The Unfair Sex: Joey and Caitlin both cheated on each other at different points. While Joey's affair with Tessa was rightfully viewed as him being in the wrong, Joey never discovers that Caitlin went out with Claude and kissed him at least once before their first relationship ended. This occurs in again in The Next Generation where Caitlin drunkenly makes out with Kevin Smith. Both times, Caitlin is portrayed sympathetically.

All Love Is Unrequited: Just like in Degrassi Junior High, it's very frequent. Heather's crush for Wheels. Alex likes Tessa, who has a crush on Joey (who doesn't seem to notice her until The Movie). Arthur loves Caitlin who is interested in Claude. Spike likes Snake, but he has still a crush on Michelle (ironically since in The Next Generation, Snake and Spike are a married couple).

Demoted to Extra: Arthur and Yick.

But no longer cute little kids, they were relegated to minor background players in Degrassi High. Melanie. She has even less screen time than Yick and Arthur in Degrassi High.

Narm: For how ahead of it's time the show actually was in dealing with these issues, this can happen quite frequently. Dwayne's kicking rampages in the bathroom after fighting Joey and drawing blood are hilarious since he can barely lift his legs. The Degrassi Talks theme song is catchy but very cheesy and sappy.

The Alleged Car
 Degrassi High / int_f237981e
comment
The Alleged Car: Clutch's Mustang II, Joey's older (but cooler if no less junky) Mustang Sportsroof, Snake's parents' huge, rusty '76 Oldsmobile, Spike's mom's Lada, Wheels' heavily beat-up Chevy Malibu wagon. It gives the impression that the production could only afford Alleged Cars for the characters to drive.

Product Placement

Product Placement: Lots of appearances by Pepsi and Quaker Oats: including a character who almost always seemed to have a box of Dipps granola bars.

Hustling the Mark

Hustling the Mark: In one episode, the cool kids invite nerdy, insecure Arthur to their poker party so they can take him for all he's worth. He's totally out of his depth — at one point, he asks, "does three of a kind beat a full house?" But he suddenly starts winning, and by the last hand, it's down to Arthur and the host ...and Arthur wins almost all the money by bluffing when his hand is complete junk. The cool kids are amazed, then Arthur grins and says, "'Does three of a kind beat a full house?' You guys are so gullible.".

Literal Genie: A complicated one in School's Out. Joey wanted to get laid. He got Tessa and Caitlin. Wheels didn't want to live with his grandparents. He isn't living with them at the end. Caitlin wanted to choose between university and love. Joey made the choice very easy for her. Snake wanted a lifesaving fantasy, but he still didn't lose his virginity.
