Product Description

DAWSON’S CREEK chronicles a close group of friends’ passage from adolescence to adulthood in their small coastal town and a rapidly changing world. This acclaimed TV drama enters its fourth hit season and continues the journey of cast members JAMES VAN DER BEEK, KATIE HOLMES, MICHELLE WILLIAMS, JOSHUA JACKSON, KERR SMITH and their characters as they deal with the pressures of school, the realities of evolving relationships and the preparation for life after graduation. Exclusively available on DVD and capturing every episode from the milestone fourth season, this great 6-disc collection is a ‘must-own’ for any fan of ‘the creek’.


The fourth season of Dawson's Creek is dominated by two themes. The first is senior year at Capeside High, as high achievers Joey (Katie Holmes) and Andie (Meredith Monroe) have as much pressure to deal with as low achiever Pacey (Joshua Jackson). The second is the constant love triangle following Joey and Pacey's return from their summer of bliss, threatening to destroy anyone's chance of having a healthy, functional relationship. Pacey's insecurity doesn't let him believe he's actually the lucky one, even as he proves with his actions that he deserves it. Fortunately for Dawson (James Van Der Beek), he finds a sympathetic ear in Pacey's older sister, Gretchen (Sasha Alexander), though he also has to enter an "indentured servitude" relationship with an old curmudgeon (Harve Presnell). Joey takes a job waiting tables at the yacht club, where she has to deal with the heir apparent to Abby Morgan's evil shoes, Drue Valentine (Mark Matkevitch), who also turns out to have a shadowy history with one of the friends. Meanwhile Andie and Jack (Kerr Smith) coach a youth soccer team, and Jen (Michelle Williams), having suddenly lost her boyfriend from season 3, cements her best-friendship with Jack and drags him to a gay coalition group where he spars with the activist leader (David Monahan). Look for cameos by Andy Griffith as a retired movie actor and by frequent soundtrack contributor Mary Beth Maziarz as a club singer.

Toward the end of the season, Dawson asks, "Is it just me, or did things get suddenly bigger in the last year?" It's true that as the characters have grown up--even Dawson, sort of--situations turn more serious, whether it's an afternoon sail on the cape or a rave that leads to the abrupt departure of one of the regular cast. After a prom from hell, the final phase is the graduation ceremony, and for Dawson's Creek it marked the end of an era, which the characters themselves felt deeply in the season-closing "Coda." The series would run for two more years, but it would never be the same again.

As with previous DVD sets, the background music has been changed significantly, including replacing the Paula Cole theme song. On the bright side, some of the linchpin songs--Shawn Colvin's "Blue Like That," Eva Cassidy's "Fields of Gold," Sarah McLachlan's "I Will Remember You"--have been preserved. Executive producer Paul Stupin contributes his usual (and increasingly unnecessary) commentary on two episodes, joined on the second by a "mystery guest," consulting producer Alan Cross. --David Horiuchi

I think of season 4 as the one where Dawson's Creek began to transform itself into Joey's Creek.

The very first scene already hints at this switch by showing Joey and Pacey returning from their boat trip after escaping a broken-hearted Dawson and inquiring friends. The trend of having Joey in the opening scenes of new seasons would continue for seasons 5 and 6. Season 6 even more blatantly so by having her do a voice-over. It was not a bad change, but I would have appreciated a memo.

Most of this season focuses on how Dawson, Joey, and Pacey could ever go back to being friends. Dawson must somehow accept that both of his best friends are now an item. Dawson and Pacey are proud, they won't admit they're wrong, and Joey is caught between her boyfriend and her best friend. It's a great conflict that in real life could have destroyed a friendship for good. But there's a reason why the audience roots for Dawson and Pacey to be friends again and that's because we know they have shared too much and still care for each other. We know they are both good boys!

Of course, Joey's relationship with Pacey is serious and commited. She helps him with school, with his family on his birthday, and even later, trying to get him into college. In return, Pacey also makes sure she studies, helps her babysit, makes sure she doesn't get too drunk at parties and, even though he has mixed feelings about it, he does want her to succeed by getting into a good college even if it means he'll have to stay behind. They make one of the best TV couples ever, and you get to wonder if Dawson would have been as good a boyfriend as Pacey was.

But Dawson meanwhile has his own life to worry about, although his life is far less interesting.

Dawson's Creek was not a show that I watched during it's regular network airing. Friends of mine recommended that I check it out, but it was never something that interested me. Then one evening while watching another show on The WB, I saw a commercial for the reairing of the very first episode of the show, prior to the final episodes as the series wound down. I watched the reairing of the Pilot and from that moment on was hooked on the lives of Dawson, Joey, Pacey and Jen.

The fourth season of Dawson's Creek is mostly about the relationship between Pacey and Joey and the problems and issues it causes among their friends. While Dawson and Joey have long considered themselves soul mates, they spend much of this season questioning that as Joey explores her relationship with Dawson's former best friend Pacey.

This season was also the final season for the group in Capeside, Mass. The kids graduate high school and move on to other things. In some cases, college is the answer, but not for all. The goodbyes to Capeside provided a solid emotional end to the season as the lifelong friends prepared for life beyond their sleepy Cape Cod town.

Katie Holmes, as tomboy turned beauty Joey Potter is perhaps the star of this season. Her relationship with Pacey and her attempts at keeping her friendship with Dawson alive completely turn her in many different directions, often unsure of where she is going or why she is going where she's going.

Joshua Jackson as Pacey gives a great performance, once again, giving good reason for the producers and writers to have him end up with Joey in the series finale. While their relationship ends before the end of the season, you always know how happy she makes him, yet he himself never really feels like he deserves someone liker her.

I have to say that this season is the best out of the whole series. Katie Holmes and Josh Jackson captured an on-screen emotion that seemed so much more like love than anything I've seen on TV or in a movie before. In fact, I have to say that their relationship is the reason I'm a hopeless romantic. I know that the end of the season isn't the way that I would want it to be...but we know how the series turns out, so I'm not too sad. Plus, once this DVD is released there's only 2 more until we have the complete series on DVD. That'll be the longest marathon ever...

For those of you who were raving like lunatics over the music changes in season 3. Get a Grip!!! This is not the place to be venting. Like I said email the people at sony, and they will direct you to the right people. The New Theme song does, however, not fit with the credit, and I to would like the original put back in. But the changes in season 3, music wise, were microscopic compared to the butchery of season 2. But I digress, this is a whole new ballgame, Season 4.

This is the Season the the torrid love affair between Pacey and Joey goes full boar, and I love it. There is so much passion and very little analyzing of their relationship, that it is a much better storyline than the Dawson and Joey story line. The best episodes are the ones that deal with the steaming couple, and lead Dawson into a different relationship with Gretchen, Pacey's older sister. The only music request that I have is that they please keep the song entitled "This Year's Love" by David Gray in the very first episode of the season. It is without a doubt the best placed song in the entire 6 season run of the show. The growing plot between Jen and Drew is another pleasant surprise as it brings back Jen's insecurities, and finally opens the door into the complex motivation in sending Jen to live with Gram's.

The marquis moment for me in season 4, is when Pacey and Joey, go on the Senior trip, and in a very unique and passionate moment they give themselves to each other sexually. You get to see once again how Pacey, is insecure about himself and his relationship throughout the season, but it is a truely gripping and ripping moment when that insecurity blows out and is released onto Joey.

On the other side you get to see how Pacey's family life has shaped the man.
