Product Description

Product Description

DAWSON’S CREEK chronicles a close group of friends’ passage from adolescence to adulthood in their small coastal town and a rapidly changing world. This landmark first season of the show marks the beginning of an unforgettable journey for cast members JAMES VAN DER BEEK, MICHELLE WILLIAMS, JOSHUA JACKSON, KATIE HOLMES and their characters, as they face the agony and ecstasy of teenage life. Exclusively available on DVD, this 4-disc presentation of the complete first season is a ‘must-own’ collectible for any fan of the smash-hit television series.


Even viewers who consider themselves beyond their teen-angst years might find Dawson's Creek compelling watching. For years Dawson (James Van Der Beek) and Joey (Katie Holmes) have watched movies and slept in the same bed, but they find that as they enter high school their relationship will inevitably change. That becomes especially clear when Dawson is immediately attracted to Capeside, Massachusetts's sexy new arrival, Jen (Michelle Williams). Meanwhile, their friend Pacey (Joshua Jackson) pursues an unachievable love object.

Creator Kevin Williamson based Dawson's Creek on his own youth, and sure, the characters may not really look or sound 15, but the Dawson-Joey-Jen interplay--especially embodied by the sad-eyed and cynical (but still adorable) Joey and the smart but emotionally inept Dawson--gives the show its heart. And just like Williamson's fresh take on the teen-horror genre, Scream, Dawson's Creek has a winking self-awareness, for example when Dawson says they're having a "90210 moment" or explains that they use big words because they watch too many movies. Highlights of the first season include Dawson's discovery that his perfect home life may not be so perfect, an unwelcome reminder of Jen's past, the Breakfast Club takeoff "Detention," the Scream takeoff "The Scare," a beauty contest in which two unlikely competitors square off, and the heart-rending finale.

On the DVDs, Williamson and producer Kevin Stubin have a commentary track for both the pilot episode and the last episode, in which they offer parallels between the two "bookends," notes on the locations, vast praise for their cast and affection for the show, and a few spoilers regarding subsequent seasons. Williamson and Stubin also do all the talking in an 8-minute featurette "From Day One," while Van Der Beek, Holmes, Jackson, and (briefly) Williams discuss their characters in the 7-minute "Season One Time Capsule," recorded back when the series premiered. On the downside, picture quality is sometimes quite grainy, perhaps because all 13 episodes plus bonuses are squeezed onto three discs. --David Horiuchi

Dear Amazonians,
Dawson's Creek is a real gem in the realm of dramas that are geared toward the teen and young adult audiences. This season begins the show by introducing us to is characters and their diverse personalities. Joey is a quiet and insecure young woman, while her childhood friend Dawson is a Steven Spielberg wannabe who is lost in is own world of fantasy. Through this season, and the rest of the series, these two characters explore themselves and the various forms of relationships that exist between them. Sometimes they date each other, and sometimes they are just happy to share intimate moments as friends.
My favorite episode in this season is "The Scare," as it really shows of Dawson's quirky sense of humor. It plays out just like a scary movie (but of course, Kevin Williamson had directed the Scream series and I Know What You Did Last Summer!), as Dawson sets up his home as a haunted house. Pacey finds an estranged woman at a convenience store, and brings her to Dawson's place, only to find out how weird she is. As the group tells ghost stories, the woman horrifies the crowd by telling them that is not what everyone thinks she is. The group listens intently as she tells of how she carries a big knife in her purse, and likes to slip open peoples throats to see how far the blood will spurt. She and her demented boyfriend really stir things up for the guys when her boyfriend comes over to the house in a rage, trying to get at his girlfriend. Everyone thinks that he is a fanatical killer, trying to keep him out of the house. Finally his girlfriend leaves somewhat peacefully with him, leaving Dawson and the gang confused over his real intentions. Joey plays a mean joke on Dawson, pretending she is dead, and Dawson is left in a state of panic.

I started watching this show when I was 11, so the dialogue was a little beyond me at the time. But I still loved the show anyways. I didnt miss an episode in 6 years.
I think that the first season has the best dialogue out of all six seasons. Although, it was also the most controversial, due mostly to the teacher/student relationship between 15 year old Pacey Witter and 36 year old Tamara Jacobs. I just thought that it made the show more interesting.
This is the show that made the WB. It quickly got better ratings than another awesome show on at the time, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. There were even talks of a crossover of some sort between the two shows, but it never happened.
I think that the best episode in this season is Detention. It is an obvious rip-off of the Breakfeast Club, and it is put together really well. It delves into Joey's obvious affection towards her best friend Dawson, and I just really love all of their reasons for being in Saturday Detention, Pacey's is the funniest.
All in all, I would recommend that you buy this excellent season. You wont regret it.

I did not get to watch Dawson's Creek when it first aired on TV, but I wish I did. This might be the best written television show I have ever seen. Essentially, this is a witty drama about childhood friends who are at the age where they start noticing the opposite sex. Not only did the writers give the characters good material to work with, but I have to admit that Katie Holmes is drop dead gorgeous. But what makes Holmes such a good actress is she can do so much more than just deliver the dialogue. Holmes is so good at facial expressions, biting her lip or looking up with her puppy eyes. Pacey offers some great comical relief. I found myself at times tearing up, only to be laughing a few seconds later. Who wasn't nearly in tears at the end of the pilot, only to burst out laughing at the "Usually in the morning, with Katie Couric" from Dawson. I challange anyone who watches the pilot not to sit down and watch the rest of the season. I would highly reccomend the first season of Dawson's Creek.
There is one other more personal reason why I love this show. When I found the show on TBS, I was suffering from depression. This show did something to me, changed me in some way. It broke through and touched my heart.
My only complaint is I wish their was a widescreen version, with a picture that utilizes all the resolution DVD's can give. And more extra's. I liked the two 8 minute mini-shows on the disc, but I would have loved an hour with the cast, and a behind the scenes special feature which showed out takes. This is a show that deserves to be in a collectors special edition set.

Dawson's Creek is about best friends Dawson (the film buff) and Joey (the witty, wrong-side-of-the-tracks girl) learning how to grow up and finding out what love is. Their lifelong friend Pacey is a wayward slacker who learns a little faster when he begins an affair with an older woman, who also happens to be his teacher. Then, Jen Lindley arrives from NYC with beautiful looks and a shady past to match. Add into the mix two parents whose marriage may not be as perfect as one would think, a religious grandmother dealing with her atheist granddaughter and her dying husband and you have the compelling first season of Dawson's Creek. This is certainly better than the disjointed third and sixth seasons.
The best episodes of the entire series (all in this set) include:
*Pilot- the beginning
*Kiss- Dawson and Joey get their first kiss, while Pacey gets a lot more
*Detention- the gang hangs with resident witch Abby Morgan in detention
*Boyfriend- Jen's boyfriend is back and Joey gets drunk
*Double Date- Dawson tries to get over Jen, and Pacey ruins his project with Joey by trying to get snails to have a threesome
*Beauty Contest- Dawson sees Joey in a new light
*Decisions- Dawson and Joey finally willingly and soberly kiss
Although the creek sort of "ran dry" after the kids went to college (maybe not the fifth, but cetainly the sixth), you should definitely check this season out. You won't be sorry you did.
