Feminist Flashback: "The First Feminist Slasher Film" on Degrassi High

It's not every day you hear the word "feminism" this many times on a TV show without poking fun at it. And in 1990, after a decade of backlash.

I've had this open in a tab for a week at work so I'd remember to watch it, and boy, am I glad I finally did. It's amazing how the new "Degrassi"s, as horrible as they are, are actually 100 times better than the old ones.

If by "horrible", you actually mean "awesome", then yes.

Don't their accents somehow seem way thicker on the old show?
