The NYT on The N

My So-Called Network: My only objection is the dissing of "Just Deal". It's one of the rare series that manages to be educational and yet have a plot. And not just a plot, but a plot that actually connects all the episodes. And we could only ever wish that a US teen series would be as realistic as Degrassi:TNG. I still wish The N would show the abortion episode though.

They really need to add Edgemont to round out their Canadian teen drama offerings. And, Gilmore Girls is already on ABC Family, and given the ratings it's drawing, I think they want to keep it for now. I could see it ending up on The N in another 5 to 8 years perhaps. The N would also do well to add The WB's Popular; another fantastic sarcastic teen show.
