Degrassi Fans For Life!!

Hi everyone,

I am currently doing research for my undergraduate honors thesis, which I'm writing about Degrassi's online fan community.

If you could help me out by filling out this quick survey, I would really appreciate it! It's the first in a series, the rest of which I am posting in installments. The full survey is posted on my journal, if you'd like to go fill the whole thing out now.

You can either reply in a comment or email me your answers at rachael.maddux[at]gmail.com, replacing [at] with @.

Thanks!
-Rachael

About You... and Degrassi

1. How long have you watched Degrassi?: I started with Junior High/High when they showed repeats on Showtime (right after Chris Cross)thanks to my older sister, then when I heard they were doing the new one, I started watching right from the get go, so id say...15-ish years.
2. How did you first become familiar with Degrassi?: My sister used to watch the old show all the time and since I was like 5 or 6, I couldn't exactly say no.
3. Have you watched any of the older Degrassi series (Degrassi Junior High, etc.)?: Haha yes.
4. How frequently do you watch Degrassi?: Every chance I get.
5. How do you watch Degrassi -- television (specify channel), downloaded episodes, DVD, etc?: On the-N, the Click, some downloaded episodes.
6. Do you watch Degrassi alone or with others? If with others, who do you usually watch it with?: Usually alone, but on occasion my only two friends who like the show watch it with me.
7. Would you call yourself a “fan” of Degrassi? If so, how long have you considered yourself a “fan”?: I'm totally a fan and have been a fan since TNG started.
8. Assuming you would call yourself a “fan,” do you consider yourself to be part of any larger “fan” group or community? Why or why not?: Nah, I feel like an idiot considering I'm a 20 year old male and the fanbase is usually younger females. No sex offender charges for me thanks!

1. How long have you watched Degrassi?: I would say since 2002? I remember the first episode I watched but I couldn't tell you if it was a rerun or not.
2. How did you first become familiar with Degrassi?: Believe it or not, but I found it channel surfing. My cable service had a TV guide and I just turned it on because I thought it was a weird name, and then I saw Paige being a b*tch to Ashley (now I know it was the start of the 2nd season after Ashley took ecstasy). But the answer is channel surfing.
3. Have you watched any of the older Degrassi series (Degrassi Junior High, etc.)?: Junior High only on DVD, waiting for the rest
4. How frequently do you watch Degrassi?: use to be everyday, but now only when new ones are on
5. How do you watch Degrassi -- television (specify channel), downloaded episodes, DVD, etc?: TV but I do own all the current DVDs
6. Do you watch Degrassi alone or with others? If with others, who do you usually watch it with?: Mainly alone, but my boyfriend does watch it sometimes when nothing else is on.
7. Would you call yourself a “fan” of Degrassi? If so, how long have you considered yourself a “fan”?: I would consider myself a fan, but not as much as I used to be. After all, I did get the ringtone! I did go to one of their mall tours, but didn't get on the long line for autographs. However, since I don't watch all that often, I think my fan status is falling.
8. Assuming you would call yourself a “fan,” do you consider yourself to be part of any larger “fan” group or community? Why or why not?: I really come to groups like this to find out the "dirt" as to what is going on and any spoilers for upcoming seasons...stuff like that. I do know people who are my age who watch this and sometimes we'll talk, but other than that, it's just one of my favorite TV shows.

Hope this helps. Good luck!
