Dawson's Creek - The Complete Third Season


"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

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! :)

I was very surprised and saddened by the choice of music for season three. It is the only reason I give the DVD four stars rather than five. Even if you don't know all the songs that were used in the third season, it obvious it has been changed, the general quality of the songs gives it away. Dawson's Creek always had the best music on the WB (along with Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and the choices for the replacement music are at best, simplistic and lack basic artitry. I wish they had raised the price of the DVD set and made up whatever cost needed to keep the original music.
That being said, this is one of the best seasons of Dawson's Creek, the plot lines, though jumpy at first, end up leading us just where our hearts want to go. If you have not seen this season you will be on the edge of your seat right up to the end. The character of Pacey also grows a lot during this season. He has always been deeper than Dawson, but he expands greatly and shows off the acting ability of Joshua Jackson in the extreme. I wonder if everyone else noticed the defining moment of this season, with Pacey sitting in the room just watching Joey sleeping. It is really the defining moment of the entire series if you know how it all ends in the series finale.
Anyway, music aside, you wil enjoy this season and of course, if you are a died in the wool Dawson's Creek fan, it is a must have and must watch.

Season 3 was the first I had ever seen of Dawson's Creek on television. When the WB hosted a special on Pacey and Joey's relationship, I was hooked. The show manages to talk about teenage issues without sounding like a lecture and the acting done by the actors is first rate.
Sony/Columbia still has not gotten the point that squeezing 23 episodes onto 4 discs is not ideal. The image quality is somewhat grainy as a result. Typically other tv shows have 6 discs to hold a comparable number of episodes. Hopefully they will have changed that for season 4. Also, it would be good for the show to change back the theme song to the one by Paula Cole. Additionally, I find it annoying that the episodes should have Spanish and Portuguese subtitles and yet not have English subtitles. For those of us that are hard of hearing or for other reasons, English subtitles would make sense. The data footprint would not be significant either.
All in all, this season is one of my favorites. Even without Kevin Williamson's direction (??), the show continues to gain momentum with the development of its characters. I would recommend this season to anyone.

So by now you've heard that season 3 does *not* have the Paula Cole theme song, but Jann Arden's "Run Like Mad" over the opening credits instead. On the commentary track, executive producer Paul Stupin acknowledges that people will notice it's gone but says "We've all heard the Paula Cole song thousands of times so we said, let's mix things up a little, let's be a little creative" before admitting, "There was, I'll be honest, a bit of an economic reality." Meaning they didn't want to pay Paula Cole to use the song. This from the guy who replaced almost all the music on the season 2 DVDs then said on the commentary, "In many cases I would go into the editing room and basically just sit there for hours trying different pieces of music and different things. And ultimately as hard as it might be, we'd find the best piece and then that would become forever part of our show." "Forever"--what a crock! Also on season 3, he gushes over how nice it is to have Kerr Smith rather than being alone on the commentary track, conveniently forgetting that season 2 was his only solo commentary, and that Kevin Williamson did commentary with him on season 1 and the series finale.
I'm glad to have "Dawson's Creek" on DVD and I do listen to the commentaries, but I'm going to keep copies of the TBS broadcasts.
