I completely disagree w/ Holly from Michigan. This is an excellent scholarly piece of work providing a critical analysis based on contemporary critical communications studies. As such, this book does a very good job explaining these theories, examining Dawson's creek and providing an explanation of the two. As for the encoded messages within the text of the show, of course they exist. Encoded messages are not meant to be negative or deceptive, they are based on culture, our ideological beliefs. Ms. Bindig did a very nice job with the structure of the book, explaining the theories, and providing in depth examples from the show. It is obvious she put in a great amount of work for this book. She also points out that this critical analysis is based on her interpretation, and that it is possible for others to have their own interpretations. This book is not a fluff piece. As a scholarly piece of work it is educational. As a fan of the show, it brings up may interesting points about the show a casual viewer would not catch (as she says!) and it was well worth the purchase.

Ms. Bindig's book is dry and much too wordy. It reads a bit too much like a college essay. She made several errors when discussing specific events on the television show Dawson's Creek. Her conclusions are far fetched and I do not buy the messages she is trying to sell!! She believes that Dawson's Creek has messages encoded in the program in relation to class, gender, capitalism, race, and sexuality. I have watched the show many times and I have never once received any of her so called encoded messages. If Dawson's Creek were to have been written the way she thinks it should have been written the television show would have bombed! I do not recommend reading this book unless you are a hard core feminist and not a fan of Dawson's Creek. Now I know why she didn't provide a synopsis!

To whom it may concern,

I bought this book and I would just like to say that I do not regret it AT ALL. I would easily say that this book changed my life. I have been a Dawsons Creek fan for several years, and Bindigs point of views and ability to capture the true story of Dawson's creek is remarakable. I have never read a book that I physically could not put it down. My husband left me because I would want to read the book all day rather than spend some quality relationship bonding time with her and the kids. Im not upset about it at all. I am perfectly happy sitting with my cats in my cat pajamas just reading this book with a good cup of tea. I would recommend this book to any stranger. It changed my life for the better. Because I knew read this book. I have been changed, for good.

Oh right... and listen Tripple horn, your crazy. ARE YOU BLIND to what creative writing talent is all about? Clearly you are. Back Off.
