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
There are a few references to Tom Cruise in the early seasons. Joey and Dawson is watching a scene from Jerry Maguire. Later, during a suspension from school, Pacey is seen watching Jerry Maguire. Pacey and the mysterious Eve (Jen's half-sister) convince Dawson to let them use his house for a Risky Business-inspired fundraiser to pay for a boat mishap Eve led him into. Katie Holmes (having had a relationship with Joshua Jackson during the series) later became Mrs. Tom Cruise number 3. See more »
The first season took place from fall to spring in the state of Massachusetts, however the realities of a Massachusetts winter (snow, heavy clothes, etc.) never appeared. See more »
"Hang on Dawson it's gonna be a bumpy life"... This quote basically describes the entire series. Through the good times and the bad times the four Capeside buddies, Joey, Dawson, Pacey and Jen stick together with some other characters thrown in for good measure... Although I am a die hard fan of the series I do at times find it tiring, with all the off and on again of the groups varied, hormonally charged relationships. Occasionally I find my self wondering why I spend so much of my time watching and re-watching seasons past on DVD but no matter how hard I try I cannot stop. So overall this series is well... interesting, fluff with a couple of dramatic moments to send the group crashing hard back to the reality of life.... but hey it's always more fun to see someone else's' life crashing than your own so set aside some time and watch away but don*t watch to long or you will get sucked into the whole teen angst ridden story.... :)
