First of all, I've only watched this First Season, so I cannot compare it to the following seasons. One of the many reasons I love Dawson's Creek, is that this show is much more realistic than other shows, such as Beverly Hills 90210. The characters are not rich kids who just happens to experience everything there is to experience in this world. These are middleclass teenagers living in a small town. Another important reason is that this show sympathizes with the underdog. Of course, Dawson's Creek is a commercial, mainstream show but these teenagers are not the cheerleaders and the jocks. These teenagers are the losers, the geeks, the underachievers! In my opinion, this show takes a lot of risks. The first episode ends with Dawson (James Van Der Beek) confessing to his best friend, tomboy Joey (Katie Holmes) when and where he prefers to walk his dog! To me other highlights include the Tamara-Pacey (Joshua Jackson) affair; it's one of the hottest on-screen relationships! To newcomers the show is, of course, exciting and fresh with all these new characters and situations - in the beginning, the show focuses on these kids' transcendence into adolescence and it's all really innocent and blooming. Gradually, the show becomes more serious and it becomes apparent that the Dawson-Joey relationship is developping and that they can never go back to being "just best friends". Especially the two last episodes, "Beauty Contest" and "Decisions" are really exciting; in "Beauty Contest" Dawson finally realizes what Joey means to him, and "Decisions" is probably the episode with the highest scale of action. SO many things happen in this episode; Joey visits her imprisoned father, which makes for the most tear-jerking moment of the whole season. And Dawson and Joey's kiss is really intense!Read more ›

Finally series 1 is released in full, I remember being completely absorbed in Dawson's creek, what feels like many years ago when I was 17 and watching this DVD box set takes me back to those days.
Season 1 in my opinion is the best season of Dawson's creek (though closely followed my season 2). Dawson's creek became too "bogged down" with heavy storylines and frustrating in season 3 that I stopped watching and haven't watched it since, but after seeing this box set advertised I had to own it just to remind myself on why I originally loved this show so much.
The series centers around Dawson Leary (James Van Der Beek), the Steven Spielberg fan, who looks to movies for answers about life. He becomes interested in new girl Jen (Michelle Williams) who moves to Capeside from New York to stay with her Grandmother. Joshua Jackson plays Dawson's friend Pacey who has troubles of his own when he starts dating his English teacher and not forgetting Katie Holmes who stars as Joey, who has to battle with her feelings for her best friend Dawson.
Dawson's creek is a wonderful series and well worth owning on DVD.

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!
