I'm Jessi. I just started watching Degrassi this summer, but I've watched all the episodes so I'm not one of those people who only know the new characters. My favorite characters are JT, Manny, and Darcy pre-season 8 (which is when I think the new cast really became more important) and Adam and Zane after season 8. My current favorite couple is Eli and Clare but I like some of the older couples like JT/Liberty and Spinner/Jane better. I'm also obsessed with the Adam/Eli/Clare friendship. I think they have a really cool dynamic.
