I can't wait for season 4 to be released!
Michelle Kramer
She could say so much with just a look, a glance at the camera and the attentive audience knew exactly what she was thinking and feeling.
S. Gadbut
This set should really have another DVD so the quality would be better, they would not have to cram so many episodes into one disc.

The first episode I ever saw of "Dawson's Creek" was when the gang graduated from Cape Side High School, at which point I learned that Dawson Leery (James Van Der Beek) was still a virgin, which certainly took a lot of the suspense out of "The Complete Third Season." This is the season that convinces us that Pacey (Joshua Jackson) is serious competition for Dawson in the Joey (Katie Holmes) sweepstakes, not only because Dawson and Joey run hot and cold for each other on alternate timetables but also because Pacey can be awfully darn cute when he wants to be. Consequently his earnest pursuit of the clueless Joey remains the bright spot in a series where most of the characters get seriously sidetracked.

Season Three begins with a series of oblique turns in the first episode, "Like a Virgin." Joey is interested in Dawson, which should be a good thing, but he is fascinated by the mysterious Eve, a new bad girl in town and end up crashing his dad's boat and trying the whole "Risky Business" approach to making the money he needs to get the boat fixed. Jen (Michelle Williams) does a wonderful job of demolishing the school's head cheerleader, in a telling speech about what life will be like 25 years down the road, and in a twist of fate that defies logic in the high school I remember is made Head Cheerleader. Apparently now once Kevin Williamson was gone, the idea was to jerk the chains of the characters as often as possible.

If you only are able to buy one season of Dawson's Creek, this should be it. The show really grew up and it took risks. It was nice to see the show truly go beyond the Dawson/Joey relationship and for the first time explore the possibility that they may be happy with other people. The Pacey/Joey relationship is magical just like Dawson/Joey. Deep down you knew there was a reason those two were fight constantly. I really love the Jack/Jen relationship too. They become better friends and Jen gets a boyfriend from almost out of nowhere. Still it's a really sweet love story. Jack deals with a lot this season and he will always be one of my favorites. So, I highly recommend this DVD. It's a must for the Creek fan.

I'm sorry, but this new theme song is a whiny piece of crap! "Run Like Mad"? Yeah...in the opposite direction! I don't care if the new song was used in the original Season 1 release internationally and I am very disheartened to learn (elsewhere) that it may be used on the Season 4 DVD collection as well. It just doesn't have the same depth as the Paula Cole song.
As tired we sometimes get of themes we've heard over and over (and over) again, there is a reason why the best ones are successful and become intrinsically linked with the identity of a show. The way "I Don't Want to Wait" was used in Dawson's Creek--sometimes cutting into the whimsical part, other times into the more humorous "do-do-do-do-do-do" chorus, other times straight into the main verse--cannot be replicated. "Run Like Mad" isn't fun and it's not dramatic, it's just plain annoying.
I tried to give this collection a chance. I broke my own rule and purchased a copy thinking that the music changes might possibly be an interesting reinvention of the show. But with very few exceptions, they just don't work and sometimes even become downright distracting. It's like the producers chose songs that lyrically fit the scene, but don't capture the mood nearly as well. And the examples are just too numerous to go into.
As for the video transfer, it remains a disappointment here. I have DC videotapes that look better than this! And now I could just kick myself because in buying the set I feel I have given the producers permission to continue these antics. It just shows such a profound lack of respect for the fans that have supported the show through the years.

Okay, here it is! The season that redefined Dawson's Creek and truly made it must-see-TV.
There has never been more heartbreaking angst and pure emotional drama packed into a single story on this show than the relationship of Pacey and Joey, and this is where it all begins. From the tentative first realization of feelings to one of the all-time greatest season finales ever, THIS is the season you MUST own.
The Pacey and Joey pairing had every element of a truly great love story, and I have to believe there is a reason those in charge of the show decided to wait a few seasons to let these two characters explore the sparks that were always under the surface between them. The chemistry between these two actors is amazing - truly electric - and undeniable as it carries over onto the screen. There's a little bit of influence from modern day romances like "When Harry Met Sally..." or "Say Anything..." thrown into this story, as well as that wonderful sort of humorous banter that you usually only got to see in the old Hepburn-Tracy classics. Sweetness and sarcasm abounds...and Pacey and Joey are also sizzling HOT together.
It's certainly no wonder that the Dawson and Joey relationship on the show was never able to rebound after this season with the majority of the fans. Of course, painting Dawson as the guy coming between TRUE LOVE in this season didn't do his character any favors, but he certainly became the character we loved to disparage, and every TV show needs one of those. We all knew Dawson was going to throw a hissy fit when he found out his best friend and his best girl had fallen in love when he wasn't looking, and he did not disappoint us in all his drama queen glory.
Such great entertainment this season!
