big Degrassi survey

Hi everyone,

I am currently researching for my undergraduate thesis, which I'm writing on Degrassi's online fan community. It would be awesome if you could help me out by taking this survey! It's the first in a series of surveys that I am going to be posting all around the online world of Degrassi fans. You can go ahead and fill out the whole survey if you want to; just check out my journal.

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

Thanks!
-Rachael

More than I've watched the new one, I was always more of a fan of the original series, I kind of make fun of DNG.

Not as often as when I bought the DVD's, but I'm trying to make sure it doesn't lose it's appeal by watching it too much.

Nowadays, it isn't on anymore, and if it was, I probably wouldn't have time to watch it. So I break out the DVD's every now and then.

I usualy watch it with others, on of my good friends and I love it, she watches the old series to make fun though.

I would call myself a fan yeah, I've been a fan for a very long time, since I can remember really.

Other than this group I don't really belong to any others, I can't seem to find any.

About You… and Degrassi

1. How long have you watched Degrassi? Oh, since the 80's when the first series came out. I'm going to guess that it was about 1987?
2. How did you first become familiar with Degrassi? I caught it on PBS and Showtime. Not many people in America knew about the show back then but I got hooked.
3. Have you watched any of the older Degrassi series (Degrassi Junior High, etc.)? Yup yup. I have them all on tape and still watch them. I have all of the new next generation episodes on my computer.
4. How frequently do you watch Degrassi? Whenever a new TNG episode comes out, plus I bust out the old tapes at least once a month.
5. How do you watch Degrassi -- television (specify channel), downloaded episodes, DVD, etc? downloaded episodes and tapes of the old ones
6. Do you watch Degrassi alone or with others? If with others, who do you usually watch it with? I watch alone, but there are a few people who remember the show and watch it with me. I've also turned a couple of people on to it.
7. Would you call yourself a “fan” of Degrassi? If so, how long have you considered yourself a “fan”? Fanatic is more like it, since the 80's
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? Hm, not really, because I'm more of a fan of the old series, and most online communities focus on the new series. I do love the new series, but nothing beats the original!
