Its the end of something simple and the beginning of Everything Else,
This review is from: Dawson's Creek: The Complete Collection [DVD]  (DVD)
For anyone on the age bracket of about 18 to 28 years old (give or take a couple years), DAWSON'S CREEK was "the It Show" of our generation. Right from the first episode, there was just something about this magical show that clicked from start to finish. Sure sometimes the character where a little too naive or over educated to be forreal, but there was something about taking an escape into the complete yet relaxing world of these characters. As the audience watched them grow from dou-eyed high school freshmen into educated, sophistica, lifewarn twenty-somethings it is really a magical journey.
I personally feel very lucky to know that I spent six years with these character, and while I was a wee bit young to complete experience everything the first time around on television it was through the magic of DVD that I was able to truely experience everything this show had to offer in all its glory. This box set is an awesome testiment to the show and the fans, and I really wish something like this would be available stateside, as I would gladly rebuy the seasons to have them all together.
Season 1 of the series introduceds the 'core four' of the series: Dawson Leery (the spoiled-only child with a dream of becoming a filmmaker), Joey Potter (the girl down the creek that you can't help but fall in love with back when katie Holmes was irrestible), Pacey (the bad boy), and Jen (the New York kickout, girl-next door)
Season 2 added two additional characters Andy (The overzelous peepy one who would stay in the show throughout high school), and her brother Jack (who will eventually turn out to be gay, and who will stick with the show till the end).
Season 3 show the group intering their junior year of high school and a few major relationship changes that show that life does not usually go according to plan.
Season 4 is the groups senior year of high school where they are all forced to make major decisions about their future and how they want to live their lives.
Season 5 is the groups freshman year of college and is all about the kids dealing with the freedoms and responsibilities of growing up.
Season 6, the final season, basically takes off from season 5 but adds to each with each character in some way eventually discovering and persuing their calling.
It is also important to note that when the producers decided to end the series durring the six series the network order an additional two episodes for a 'grand finale' that the producers took full advantage of. The series is basically wrap with episode 126 "Joey Potter and the Capeside Redemption," and then the final two episodes "All good things, must come to an end" which serves almost as a reunion movie as it takes place five years after the episode before it and shows what happens to the core members of the group once they go their seperate ways.

Great review, and thanks. I wanted to ask though, just because I didn't understand it fully from your review, is the season 6 finale "all good things...." included in this box set?
