Return to Capeside: A reunion with old friends
It recently came to my attention there are still women out there who haven’t seen ‘Dawson’s Creek’. There are women going about their daily lives who have not experienced the likes and greatness of one Pacey Witter (who do they measure potential boyfriends against?). THERE ARE STILL PEOPLE WHO DON’T FULLY GRASP THE IMPORTANCE OF THE DAWSON CRYING GIF.
It’s terribly tragic, but I’ve decided to take it upon myself to right this wrong.
My goal for 2013 is to introduce these poor lost souls to the glory of one of the greatest teen soaps the world has ever known by revisiting the show that paved the way for much of what came after. For without Dawson and Pacey, we might never have known Ryan and Seth. The love triangle as we know it would be dramatically altered if Dawson, Joey and Pacey didn’t pave the way all those years ago. And Michelle Williams and Busy Phillips might not be best friends in a ‘Dawson’-less world. I shudder at the thought.
I take this project on because I care. My burden is my own, but I will do this for my fellow woman (and man), because no one, I repeat, no one should have to live without experiencing this important piece of popular culture.
But I will not stop with Dawson and company. I will attempt to bring to the light all those lost to the darkness that was the late 90s and early 00s. In addition to revisiting ‘Dawson’s Creek’, I will be making a list of the TV shows everyone needs to see in order to properly understand the current scope of popular culture. I do this alone and all I ask is that you watch with me. Because there are few things in life more exciting than watching a friend experience great TV for the first time.
Cue the iconic theme music.
