    Synopsis


    Aspiring moviemaker Dawson Leery (James Van Der Beek) and his lifelong friends Joey Potter (Katie Holmes) and Pacey Witter (Joshua Jackson) enter their sophomore year of high school as Dawson's Creek enters its inaugural season. Life in Capeside, MA, has been fairly sedate for the trio up till now, but with the arrival of Dawson's new next-door neighbor, 15-year-old Jen Lindley (Michelle Williams), things begin to heat up a bit. Joey is jealous because Dawson clearly likes Jen, Pacey is jealous of Joey because he likes Jen, and Jen is stimulated by all the attention, having had far more carnal experience than Dawson, Joey, and Pacey combined. But Pacey is soon making up for lost time, losing his virginity to his attractive teacher, Ms. Tamara Jacobs (Leann Hunley), who is forced to leave town to avoid a scandal. Pacey's friends' romantic adventures are somewhat more chaste, with both Dawson and Joey enjoying their first kisses (though not as yet with each other) in the course of the season. Later on, flirtatious Jen breaks Dawson's heart, but comes to regret her actions. On a less frolicsome note, Dawson finds out that his TV-newsperson mother, Gail (Mary-Margaret Humes), is cheating on Dawson's dad, Mitch (John Wesley Shipp). As in future seasons, movie references abound during season one of Dawson's Creek, notably in the episode "Detention," a virtual remake of The Breakfast Club. The season ends with Dawson and Joey realizing that there is something wonderful between them, thanks to a long and passionate kiss (minus the expected discreet fade out!). But nothing may come of this, since Joey seems poised to move to France. ~ Hal Erickson

      Best thing to happen to TV in a long, long time

      Dawson's Creek is by no means a realistic portrayal of teenage angst. The power of the series and what, in my view, makes it far and away the best thing to happen to TV in a long, long time, is that is it a realistic portrayal of teenage emotions... The characters in Dawson's Creek may only be 16, yet as Eve said to Dawson (early Season 3) they are all 'old souls'. The emotions in the series are real, the emotions felt by the characters are real, yet, the fact that Kevin Williamson has allowed the characters a vocal outlet for these emotions is the genius of the show. My So Called Life was a brave attempt to do this, but fell short through its pretensions of grandeur. Dawson's Creek embraces the fact that the vocabulary spoken is fake and because of this, is entirely forgiven. This is why we watch television, to feel and see emotions that we cannot or do not feel in our own lives.

      I couldn't believe it when I heard that the full SERIES of Dawson's Creek was on sale for $35 (around Christmas). I was lucky to still get the deal after the holiday. Nowadays we're lucky to pay that price for one SEASON not for the full series. It was worth much more :) Re-watching the series brings back such good memories of the series, the times of my life when it was on, and of recent trips to Wilmington, NC where the show was filmed. Even at the current price of $45, this is still a great bargain for any DC fan. It's just the way you remember it. :)

      Missing episodes!!!

      I absolutely love Dawson's Creek and was so excited to get the complete series for Christmas. I sat down to start a marathon of season 1. Disk 2 says episodes 5-9 but only has 5,6 & 7. Disk 3 has 10-13. Episodes 8 & 9 are nowhere to be found! I'm so disappointed. I'll exchange for a new set tomorrow. Hopefully it was a fluke and the next set won't be missing anything. We'll see.......

      Favorite TV Show!

      I LOVE this show. Going back and watching all the episodes now is kind of cheesy, but I don't care. This was the first TV show I watched that wasn't a cartoon. (I was 13 when it came out.) I actually got this box set because I liked the idea of having all the discs in the same box. I have each season separately, but they're in storage and take up a lot of room. This was worth the buy, especially as DOTD. I couldn't pass it up!

      My wife really liked this show when it first debuted in the 1990's, so when I saw the whole series on sale for such a great price, I had to get it for her. James Van Der Beek & Katie Holmes are the two main characters whose love story is chronicled from high school through college. It's a nicely paced drama that is age appropriate for tweens and older and is less edgy than 90210
