Storyline

Set in a small coastal, Massachusetts town named Capeside, Dawson's Creek tells the story of four teenagers as they struggle through adolescence. This is particularly true for 15-year-olds Dawson Leery, an introspective dreamer and Joey Potter, a precocious tomboy unaware of her beauty. Best friends since childhood, they are about to enter that confusing time in life where nothing is the way it was and nothing is as it seems. Written by John <littlejohnboy@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Joey: I was scared.
Dawson: Of what?
Joey: Of going backwards, of never growing up.
Dawson: That's what I represent to you?
Joey: No, not you. Us. I started this year thinking that I had to say good-bye to you, but I was wrong. Dawson, you're a huge part of my life - past, present, and future - and I have to start getting used to that because... you make my life better, not worse

The Best TV Series Ever Made
30 June 2004 | by (Davao City, Philippines) – See all my reviews

The first time I heard about Dawson's Creek, I wasn't really allured into watching the show. It was only during the time I actually watched it when I got hooked immediately. Four teenagers portrayed characters that are quite realistic. The story evolved up until their growing up years wherein they experienced trials and problems about love, school and life. In my opinion,this clicks with the viewers specifically their target viewers, the teenagers, because it is closely attached to reality. Also, the catchy music help depict the story even more. For instance, the country songs lament the small town setting in which the characters are based before they went to college. The actors themselves were very impressive. They do not sound too hyper or exaggerated; well except for Busy Phillips whose character really entails the exaggerated type. Another thing is the storyline. I love the storyline. It seems to me that every scene was well-thought of, not to mention, imaginative and well-written. I learned a lot from every episode that they have shown and it would not be complete without the tears falling from my eyes before the show finishes to an end.
