Product Description

Product Description

The saga continues in this thought-provoking second season. Set in Capeside, a small coastal town near Boston, "Dawson's Creek" tells the story of five teenagers struggling through adolesence. Dawson Leary (James Van Der Beek) and introspective dreamer, and Joey Potter (Katie Holmes) a precocious tomboy unaware of her beauty, have been best friends since childhood. Pals Jennifer (Michelle Williams), Pacey (Joshua Jackson), and Jack (Kerr Smith) join them as they live, love and learn.

Amazon.ca

The second season of Dawson's Creek finds Dawson (James Van Der Beek) and Joey (Katie Holmes) exploring the newest phase of their lifelong friendship, leaving Jen (Michelle Williams) and Pacey (Joshua Jackson) on the outside. The former enters a downward spiral assisted by bad girl Abby (Monica Keena), but Pacey happens into a "meet cute" with one of Capeside's new residents, the impossibly perky Andie (Meredith Monroe), who turns out to be his perfect foil. The Creek also struck gold with its second major addition, Andie's brother Jack (Kerr Smith), who shows Joey that he's more than just a clumsy waiter. With the siblings' help, Pacey and Joey show the most personal growth during the season's 22 episodes. The constant parent-child crises can be a bit much, but there were numerous other developments, including a two-part sexual whodunnit, Dawson embarking on his second movie (assisted by Rachael Leigh Cook in a sizzling guest appearance), Dawson's birthday party from hell, a vicious rumor that spreads through the high school, and the emotion-wringing finale.

The only bonus feature is a commentary track on the first and last episodes just as with the first season, though executive producer Paul Stupin is by himself rather than accompanied by creator Kevin Williamson. The interplay is missed, but Stupin enthusiastically offers a lot of information about how the cast had become celebrities by the second season and had to juggle other projects, and random details and trivia. Stupin mentions how carefully he selected different pieces of music, which "would become forever part of our show." That's ironic because for this DVD set Stupin himself picked a lot of new music to replace the selections that originally aired, presumably because of the cost involved in securing the rights (a problem for many television DVD releases). A couple of episodes are unaltered, but others have had almost every song replaced. Newcomers to the series probably won't notice, but serious fans may want not want to tape over their VHS cassettes just yet. --David Horiuchi

Dawsons creek has to be one of my all time favorite TV shows, and season 2 was probably my favourite. With that in mind I cannot begin to tell you how awful this set is. What is wrong with you WB? Have you no respect for the fans of the show? No pride in what you put on the shelves? These sets are intended as keepsakes for people to remember the show.
The picture quality is almost as bad as the first season, but the real thing which is going to make me return this dvd is the replaced music. What WB or whoever made the changes obviously does not understand is that the music was a very very important part of the show, and scenes and episodes are connected to certain songs for all the fans. Well not with this DVD.
Why can't Dawsons Creek get the same respect and treatment on DVD that shows like Buffy, or Smallville, or countless other shows get on DVD? Raise the price $10 or $20 - fans will pay it if you make it worthwhile - which its currently is not.
I'm not going to purchase any more seasons of dawson creek until they stop with the cheap crap they are putting out and release a proper DVD set.

My anticipation for this release was so great that I didn't pay attention at first to the comments online re the music changes. I read them belatedly, yet still hoped against hope that they would be minor. They are not.
First of all, I am appalled that these changes are not more prominently noted on the packaging for the collection. Would most people know that "features brand new music selected by the executive producer" in small type on the back of the box means that this is not additional music but is a full replacement of 75-90% of the original songs?
Second, this is a show that pioneered big pop soundtracks on TV. Working in the industry, I remember one of my first reactions to the show was that the budget on music clearances must be enormous--well, this is where the producers finally let the fans down. After two soundtrack CD's and a TV special promoting the music used in DAWSON'S CREEK--not to mention the afore-mentioned exec producer bragging about his selections on DVD commentaries--we lose far too many of these same songs in this new collection.
So many fans have noted their missing favorites and I agree with them all. For me, one of the most devastating loses is Natalie Merchant's "Frozen Charlotte", which plays under the scene after Dawson's disastrous 16th birthday party when Joey goes to the window and makes a wish on the first snowfall. It's a moment filled with magic as well as melancholy and the song adds to its poignancy and power. Hearing the song for the first time made me want to investigate the other music used in the shows. The new song is sweet enough but pales in every comparison.
To say I was disappointed is a gross understatement.

Honestamente no sé que pensó Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment al lanzar este DVD set con tan pocos extras y tan baja calidad en el video, quieren economizar tanto que acaban con las series que presentan, detallo a continuación:
- DISCO 1: cinco episodios, trae como extras un comentario adicional para un episodio y básicamente los mismos previews que fueron incluidos en la primera temporada.
- DISCO 2: seis episodios, lo que hace que el bitrate del video sea de menor calidad considerando que un DVD regular a una calidad aceptable solo tiene capacidad para 4 episodios.
- DISCO 3: seis episodios.
- DISCO 4: cinco episodios, con la gran "novedad" de un comentario adicional para un episodio.
Creo que una vez más esta editora nos ha dejado decepcionados de estos sets. Esperemos que las ediciones por venir incluyan más extras y que el video sea de mejor calidad.
ENGLISH:
Honestly, I have no idea what Columbia TriStar was thinking when they released this DVD Set with basically no extras and so low video quality, they want to save too much money and they end messing up the TV shows, here are the details:
- DISC 1: five episodes, and additional audio commentary for one episode and the same trailers included on Dawson's Creek Season One.
- DISC 2: six episodes, which makes a very low quality video bitrate considering that a regular DVD has a four episodes capability, on a normal video bitrate.
- DISC 3: six episodes.
- DISC 4: five episodes and an additional audio commentary for one episode.
I think that one more time Columbia has disappointed us. I honestly hope that the upcoming releases include more extras and a better video quality.

Wow is this season great. This is sort of a continuation of the first season; it picks up where season one left off. Dawson and Joey, after months of angst, finally begin their romantic relationship, but they're headed for rocky seas. Pacey begins a relationship with Andie, a newfound sparring partner. Jen, under the influence of Abby Morgan, begins a downward spiral into her old New York ways but eventually finds solace in Jack, who reveals a secret that surprises everyone. Although the end of this season did get a little crazy, it was still really good. Definitely a season worth watching.
Best Episodes:
*The Kiss- Dawson and Joey deal with their relationship
*Crossroads- Dawson invades Joey's privacy
*The Dance- Andie and Pacey get together, but Dawson and Joey break up (which I didn't like)
*His Leading Lady- Dawson makes a movie
*Be Careful What You Wish For- Dawson gets drunk and tells the truth (watch it, you'll know what I'm talking about)
*A Perfect Wedding/ Rest in Peace- Dawson and Joey get back together and Abby takes a turn for the worse (don't want to ruin it, but the title sort of gives it away)
