Product Description


"Jen is a cheerleader and Jack's on the football team. I got sane and everyone else went crazy?" That's how Andie (Meredith Monroe) sums up the topsy-turvy beginning to the third season of Dawson's Creek, in which nothing seems to be as it should and the series takes a major turn. It's junior year at Capeside High, and Jack (Kerr Smith), the town's resident gay teen, is indeed on the football team, and Jen (Michelle Williams) finds herself the object of unexpected and unwelcome popularity among her fellow students, especially the freshman quarterback (Michael Pitt). Pacey (Joshua Jackson) finds that his relationship with Andie can't be restored, and Dawson (James Van Der Beek) and Joey (Katie Holmes), after the events of last year, both think it's for the best that they're no longer together--they just never think it at the same time. Significant events include the friends starting to date outside their circle, Dawson's giving up some of his aspirations, a crisis for the school's new principal, a college tour, and the openings of the Potter Bed & Breakfast and Leery's Fresh Fish. But the Dawson-Joey relationship is still the heart of the Creek, and it comes to a head in one of the series' most memorable episodes, "The Longest Day," and then the season finale. Even in its first season without series creator Kevin Williamson, Dawson's Creek still had plenty of punch.

On the DVDs, executive producer Paul Stupin does his usual commentary track for two episodes, and he's joined by Kerr Smith. They discuss the series itself, Smith's character, and Smith's subsequent career more than the events of the episodes. The second-season DVD set disappointed many fans by replacing a large portion of the music, and that trend continues in the third season, most surprisingly in the loss of Paula Cole's theme song. Instead, the opening credits feature Jann Arden's "Run Like Mad," which was used briefly in the international broadcast. Stupin explains the switch as an attempt to do something different and creative, but then admits there was also "a bit of an economic reality." Fortunately, the DVDs do have John Lennon's "Imagine" and Mary Beth Maziarz's "Daydream Believers"--songs that in dramatic context simply could not have been replaced--and it could be argued that a veteran viewer might skip the opening credits anyway. Still, for many fans, the music made Dawson's Creek what it was, and without all of it--especially the theme song--the DVDs seem like a compromise rather than a permanent keepsake. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Series July 4 2004
By Alaskan
I just finished watching Season Three on DVD, and I have to say that I loved it. The episode entitled "The Longest Day," was especially well-done. DC represents a very clever and creative story line. I never watched DC while it was airing on WB, so I am not familiar with all of the music changes. Initially, I was disappointed with the theme song change in Season 3, but after watching several episodes, it didn't matter anymore. The new theme is catchy in its own way. This is a great series, and I will anxiously await the release of seaons 4, 5, and 6!

5.0 out of 5 stars True Love on the Creek May 30 2004
If you are reading these reviews, then you must be a Dawson's Creek fan and already know how amazing this show is! Season 3 by far is the best season of Dawson's Creek! I watched Dawson's Creek from the very beginning and anticipated the day when Pacey and Joey (the best characters on the show!) would finally get together. However, I did not expect the writers and producers to portray this love story so beautifully. It was a way in which no other show has ever done. Dawson's Creek is different from every other show because they really made an effort to make you feel for the characters and care for them and their struggles. They also showed depth and character development throughout the entire series. In Season 3, the writers and producers made the audience care for Pacey and Joey (you may find yourself rooting for them to get together!). They created such a powerful love story, that it changed the course of the show. No longer were the fans cheering for Dawson to finally kiss Joey, but for Pacey and Joey to finally find true love with each other. The dialogue between them, especially during the end episodes (Anti-Prom..."I remember everything") is magical. Joshua Jackson and Katie Holmes also did a wonderful job in making these characters come to life. Season 3 is the best! I mean, he bought her a wall! If you are a true Dawson's Creek fan, then you must own Season 3 when true love began on the creek! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars 1 Theam Song Short of 5 stars Sept. 17 2004
This DVD is definatly worth the money, especialy if you are an abbid DC fan like I am. Season 3 is one out the best seasons out of the 6, this is whear all of the drama and tention between the characters begins to unfold starting with the unusual behavior of newly changed Dawson after meating the very "outgoing" Eve. This starts a new relationship between Joey and Pacey and everything just gets ugly from there. The only disapointing aspect of this DVD is the total change in Music through the season including the theam song, this might not have been the best Idea, all the original songs were matched perfictly with every emotion and seen, also in the Boat race episode they replace the very fitting Megadeth song "Crush em'" with a song that dosent even relate to the seen, and that is why I could only give 4 out of 5 stars. Other than that this is a great DVD and I highly recommend it!!! Season 4,5&6 will be even better I'm sure, I can't wait!!

I'm like the biggest Dawson's creek fan ever so of course I bought the season 3 dvd to go along with all my other Dawson's creek DVDs (even thought i'd all ready taped all the episodes!)
and this Dvd was sooo worth the money! It's amazing! It's only problem was that they changed all the music in it(including the theme song!)oh! and that it has no interviews with the cast and stuff! but for someone who just want all the wonderful episodes, this is great and i fully recomend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Season 3.... July 18 2004
OK The new theme song is a little slow, and I am just as fond of the original theme song. But people this is not the place to bash the DVD. If you want them to know your displeasure email sony........They will direct your complaints to the proper sources. The Music changes for the rest of te shows were hardly noticable. The important songs like Finally found You, PRomise Me This, Hold On, and My Invitation were still in there and in there right spots. They did not butcher it as much as they did Season 2 when in the end not one song was there from the original.
As for the season, it is still a great season. I still think that Pacey and Joey are a far better couple than Dawson and Joey. The producers were able to run with it, where as the Dawson and Joey one was stagnent.
I also agree that the commentary sucked!!! Email Sony and complain.
