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
In season one, episode seven, "Detention", Dawson (James Van Der Beek) compares the group's Saturday detention to The Breakfast Club (1985). He mentions the cast are now languishing in television obscurity. Pacey (Joshua Jackson) then mentions Emilio Estevez from the film, saying "He was in those duck movies, remember? God those were classics. So funny." Joshua Jackson was in all three "Mighty Ducks" films with Emilio Estevez. 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 »
Dawson's Creek is an outstanding show and it has so many amazing aspects. The script is beautifully written and keeps the audience entertained with well developed dialogue. The cinematography is beautiful and consistent from episode to episode. The actors had a natural chemistry that made the show so much more enjoyable to watch. The show is extremely addicting and is relatable to the average everyday teen. Kevin Williams uses the cliff hanger strategy often and effectively to keep the audience thinking and guessing what'll happen next. Just a great show in general that has taught me some valuable lessons about friendship and love and family values. Many of the events that happen in the show I have personally experienced and i'm sure I am not the only one who can relate and that is what made the show so impactful with me.
