In the Spiring of 1998, I started watching what was to become, one of my generations deffing Televion Shows. I started Watching Dawson, because it was on right after, my all-time favorite Television show "Buffy th Vampire Slayer" but in no time at all Dawson found its place in my heart. I have to admit that when the first seaosn aired I was 10 years-old and in the 5th grade. I didn't understand most the show, and today can't beleive that my parents allowed me to watch it.
But now (As i am 15 and a sophomore, well i was until yesteryday), as I watch the first season on DVD and the other 5 season on TBS, I relieve that even though unrelistic at times, Dawson's Creek is the perfect show for a to watch growing up. It has many lesson, cleaverly hidden inbetween the weekly who's dating who. The First Season is clearly the best. Unfortunatly The shows got worse each year, except Season 6 was far better than the almost unwatchable season 5.
But now as the show is over, and I know where my favorite characters are in there lives 10 years later (Even though my one of my two favorite characters are now 6-feet under), this season feels like an old book that I can open whenever I wan't. The end of the series also brings a hole new prospective onto the season. I don't think anyboy can watch the first season, then the Series Finale, and then the first seaosn again and not cry.
One more food for thought to mention is, that if you look at the 1998 - 2000 television seasons, what where the top teen shows? The Answer is Dawson's Creek, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Feliciy, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Rosewell, and Popular. Now in 2003 three of the shows are long gone: Felicity, popular, and Rosewell, and the final 3 which where bigger, better, and more crically acclaimed show: Dawson, Buffy, and Sabrina end in the same month. Now all we have are DVD's, and i know that at least one person will keep these disc's close to there heart, because I know no matter where i am in my life, I will always remember how i grew up just by poping in a disc.
