    Synopsis


    Season two of Dawson's Creek picks up where season one left off, with the passionate kiss between 15-year-old aspiring filmmaker Dawson Leery (James Van Der Beek) and his lifelong friend Josephine "Joey" Potter (Katie Holmes). Still, it will be some time before Dawson and Joey surrender to the obvious fact that they are destined to be together forever. This season marks the first appearance of Andie McPhee (Meredith Monroe) and Andie's brother Jack (Kerr Smith), not to mention the manipulative Abby Morgan (Monica Keena), who wastes no time exerting her bad influence over Dawson's sexy next-door neighbor Jen Lindley (Michelle Williams). Meanwhile, Dawson's pal Pacey (Joshua Jackson) has an uncomfortable reunion with Tamara Jacobs (Leann Hunley), the English teacher to whom he had given up his virginity in the previous season. With Joey apparently interested only in newcomer Jack, Dawson goes back to Jen on the rebound, which turns out to be a really bad move. As it turns out, however, Jack is gay, and thus hardly a rival to Dawson. As for his sister Andie, she has a brief fling with the ever-willing Pacey -- and as a result of her parent's marital problems, Andie also suffers a nervous breakdown, which may force her to move out of Jack's life forever. Things aren't much more pleasant in the Leery home, as Dawson's parents, Gail (Mary-Margaret Humes) and Brian (John Wesley Shipp), decide to get a divorce. Using his "art" to release his emotions, Dawson starts filming a movie of his life, upsetting his friends and family -- and himself, when the finished product is roundly panned by a professional filmmaker. Just before the season closer, Jen joins Abby in a drinking binge, which ends disastrously when Abby falls off a bridge and drowns in the river. ~ Hal Erickson

      Dawson's Creek was an uneven show at best. The storylines were often unoriginal, the dialogue was even more frequently unrealistic and certain parts of each episode, usually scenes involving Jen, Jack or Dawson's parents, generally weren't worth watching to me. The only reason I started watching was Katie Holmes and the main reason I continue to watch any episodes beyond the first season was the addition of Meredith Monroe in the 2nd season because the whole Joey-Dawson love story, around which the entire show revolved, peaked with the season 1 finale and was all down hill from there so if you've only seen the first season, I recommend stopping there because if you keep going you will most likely be disappointed. Having said that, as aluded to before, the best thing about season 2 by far was the addition of Meredith Monroe to the cast and the Andie-Pacey love story was by far the most, if not the only, compelling reason to watch season 2. That alone makes watching season 2, or at least the Andie-Pacey scenes, worthwhile. Setting the story issues aside, the biggest problem with the dvd release itself is that many of the songs which were originally included in the show were replaced on the dvd with other, lesser songs. This was done to cut costs because of royalty issues and it completely ruined every episode which was altered. The powers that be behind this decision, and it's not limited to the Dawson's Creek series, don't seem to grasp that the cost of a dvd is irrelevant compared to maintaining the original composition of the show which is what the fans (who are the buyers of the dvds afterall) want. Fans of the show know the music from each scene probably as well as the dialogue and when it's replaced, it alters the mood and emotion of the scene as well as that of the audience because instead of just enjoying a particular scene we find ourselves thinking "that's not the music that goes with this scene, this sucks, change it back." Just imagine if they replaced the iconic music in Star Wars, Rocky or Jaws or any other number of films and you'll know what I mean. Not that Dawson's Creek is in the same category with those films, but you get the point. It's no longer the same show if you change the music, it's something different which though similar just isn't as good or familiar. It's like the difference between regular and diet pop, it's just not the same. Buyers must stand up for themselves and send a message to the powers that be that we're not going to waste our money on these pale imitations of the shows we like. If we allow them to get away with "little" changes like the music, the next thing you know they'll be cutting out scenes, or redoing them with cheaper actors or with stick figure drawings for that matter-which as far as I'm concerned is no different than changing the music. So until a corrected version of this series is rereleased on dvd with the original music, I recommend to all fans of the show not to buy these dvds. That's the only way the studios will realize and correct their mistake.
