I was so excited to watch this again right from the beginning as I saw it was on catch up. I explained to teenage ds how everyone used to watch it on Sunday mornings while nursing a hangover from the night before.

We watched the first 10 mins, he rolled his eyes and left the room and I turned it off... it was direconfusedsad

How did we watch such nonsense? Joey and Dawson were actually talking about the fact they have 'genetailia and body hair' now so they shouldn't sleep in the same bed, the script was toe curlingly cringe worthy!

So disappointing,I wish I'd kept it as a lovely memory.

I used to love this too, but I haven't got catch up so I can't watch it again!

I really think Katie Holmes was the weak link, acting-wise.

Doesn’t even come close to Andy’s acting.

Yeah, but they ditched her pretty quickly!

Not quick enough! She was in it for 2 or 3 seasons! She was painful to watch. And listen to.

I'm just here to lay my claim to Pacey!

Yes, it was terrible looking back, but at the time it was so good. I was possibly a little too old to be watching it. But it gave us the divine Michelle Williams and for that I am willing to overlook almost anything.

Dawson was such an arse.

tbf though they were meant to be teen age so we were all acting quite like dicks then.

I have to say, I really enjoyed the series, though much too old for it. Maybe because I was too old for it? I had more patience with all the talking than teenagers might have.

I'm currently watching all episodes of One Tree Hill on Prime. That's aged much better. James VDB is on that for a few eps taking the piss out of himself as Dawson too. It was filmed in the same place as DC, lots of familiar places.

Dawson's Creek is still my favourite programme from my teenage years. I even bought it on dvd lol.
