Product Description

Product Description

DAWSON’S CREEK chronicles a close group of friends’ passage from adolescence to adulthood in their small coastal town and a rapidly changing world. This landmark first season of the show marks the beginning of an unforgettable journey for cast members JAMES VAN DER BEEK, MICHELLE WILLIAMS, JOSHUA JACKSON, KATIE HOLMES and their characters, as they face the agony and ecstasy of teenage life. Exclusively available on DVD, this 4-disc presentation of the complete first season is a ‘must-own’ collectible for any fan of the smash-hit television series.

From Amazon.co.uk

Even viewers who consider themselves beyond their teen-angst years might find Dawson's Creek compelling. In the first series we are introduced to Dawson (James Van Der Beek) and Joey (Katie Holmes), who for years have watched movies and slept in the same bed; but they find that as they enter high school their relationship will inevitably change. That becomes especially clear when Dawson is immediately attracted to Capeside's sexy new arrival, Jen (Michelle Williams). Meanwhile, their friend Pacey (Joshua Jackson) pursues an unachievable love object.

Creator Kevin Williamson based Dawson's Creek on his own youth, and even though the characters may not really look or sound 15 years old, the Dawson-Joey-Jen interplay--especially embodied by the sad-eyed and cynical (but still adorable) Joey and the smart but emotionally inept Dawson--gives the show its heart. And just like Williamson's fresh take on the teen-horror genre, Scream, Dawson's Creek has a winking self-awareness, for example when Dawson says they're having a "90210 moment" or explains that they use big words because they watch too many movies. Highlights of the first series include Dawson's discovery that his perfect home life may not be so perfect, an unwelcome reminder of Jen's past, the Breakfast Club takeoff "Detention", the Scream takeoff "The Scare", a beauty contest in which two unlikely competitors square off, and the heart-rending finale. --David Horiuchi

I managed to avoid watching "Dawson's Creek" until the gang graduated from high school; students in my Popular Culture class always wanted to write about the show for their television unit so I finally had to get with the program. That means that when the first season finally became available that I already know that the title character is going to make it through his high school years with his virginity intact. Consequently, watching the first season of the series that was created by Kevin Williamson and which put the WB on the map is not about the big question of whether or not Dawson is going to (and if he does with whom). Basically it is about a group of high school sophomores struggling to maintain their relationships despite their almost constant attempts to destroy those self-same relationships.
The secret to enjoying "Dawson's Creek" is to realize that Dawson Leery (James Van Der Beek) is the least interesting member of the core group. This is not to say that he is boring, but when the entire series starts with him coaxing Joey Potter (Katie Holmes) into his bed because they always sleep together on movie night while remaining oblivious to the fact that the girl across the Creek is (a) in love with him and (b) a righteous babe, it is clear that this guy does not have a clue. Throughout the first season Dawson pretty much revalidates that idea at each and every opportunity, especially once "new girl" Jen Lindley (Michelle Williams) literally moves next door. Meanwhile, loveable loser Pacey Witter (Joshua Jackson) is putting the moves on Tamara Jacobs (Leann Hunley), the gang's new English teacher. This last aspect becomes the proverbial exception that proves the rule because otherwise this coming of age drama would, rather ironically, be about teenagers NOT having sex.

Sadly Dawsons Creek ended in 2003, but now we can relive the glory days of season one. We look into the life of four teenage americans, trying to cope with everyday life. The four main characters are Dawson, Pacey, Joey and the girl from New York, Jen. Season One has some classic episodes, from when Pacey gets involved with the local high school english teacher to when Dawson and Joey FINALLY kiss at the end of the season.
I remember the show coming on and immediatley you could tell that this was ground breaking and so different from other teenage dramas around at the time. Though it only had 13 episodes, it set a foundation upon which season 2 and three, (the best seasons) were established.
Though the show has ended, it is worth buying this great DVD boxset. Lets hope Season 2 follows quickly!

Created by Kevin Williamson, the writer of Scream and I know what you did last summer comes this one of a kind teenage series. Except it's not just for teenagers! It's for anyone who loves witty, romantic, heart-breaking and surreal television. If you enjoy references to other TV shows and movies (as was the trend at the time) you'll love this first series. It seems normal now to mention popular culture in almost every TV show but at the time it was groundbreaking stuff! This is the best season, series one and two are superb, before the series went dowhill and turned into just another soap opera! It was always worth watching during it's six years on the air, but once Williamson left it was a shadow of it's former self. This season introduces us to film-maker Dawson (Van Der Beek) "Speilberg shot on an 8mm when he was 15" Tom-boy, soul mate and potential love interest for Dawson, Joey Potter (Katie Holmes), city girl Jen Lyndley (Michelle Williams) and misunderstood loner Pacey (A scene stealing Joshua Jackson!) This first series has many great story-lines including Pacey sleeping with his teacher, a love triangle involving Dawson, Jen and Joey, Jen learning to live with her Grandma's religion, her Grandad's death and a really great parody of the movie Scream.

The four episodes that you must own are...

The Pilot


Detention (take off of the Breakfast club)

The Scare (take off of Scream)

Two commentary's from Williamson complete the package. As a writer myself I'm intrigued to listen to them and catch up... with the gorgeous Kate Holmes!

I love this season. It's a real trip down memory lane for me. I had just started college when DC began so I was close in age to the characters and I could really relate to how they felt. I think Joey's feelings for Dawson are portrayed really well. Joey has always been one of the most compelling characters in this series for me and I was delighted to see her end up with Dawson at the end of this series (back in the day when Dawson was still a credible character that is!) Unlike in subsequent seasons, I think ALL the actors put a really good performance in here.
There's no denying it's a great storyline- 3 friends growing up in a small town when in steps this wild child from New York to rock their world! Pacey doesnt really get the chance to shine as much here as in later seasons, which is a shame.
I think this season is essential to anyone who got into DC later on, as this season really lays the foundations for the whole Dawson- Joey- Pacey thing that comes later.
Even if you werent a fan of later seasons of DC I think you would like this- it's much more light hearted than later seasons and has some cracking episodes, especially that one that takes off "The Breakfast Club"
I'd definitely reccommend it!
