    Dawson's Critique—Season 2, Episode 16—Be Careful What You Wish For

    Dawson's Critique—Season 2, Episode 16—Be Careful What You Wish For

    On this episode of Dawson's Creek, it is a miracle that Dawson has any friends that will speak to him after how he behaves at his 16th birthday.

    Joey plans a surprise party for Dawson, despite his telling her he wants to be together and then getting mad when she says that's not what she wants.

    Andie and Dawson get drunk and sing the worst blues song ever. While Pacey tries to corral them to the party.

    And Jack and Abby Morgan have an interesting talk about sexuality, which leads to a nightmare scenario in Dawson's room.

    We hope everyone is staying safe, healthy, and sane. Hope we help you get through this week.

    Dawson's Criqite Season 2, Episode 15—That Is The Question

    Dawson's Criqite Season 2, Episode 15—That Is The Question

    In the second half of the big two parter, Jack and Andie's dad shows up when he finds out what's been happening at school with Jack. And Jack reveals something about himself that changes everything...for the better, as far as we're concerned.

    Meanwhile, Jen is inexplicably dating Ty, and Joey and Dawson end up at the jazz club we may or may not be referring to as The Peach Pit, where we all learn that Ty can play a passable jazz piano, and where the proverbial triangle of Dawson, Joey, and Jen, find out that actually they kind of have fun together.

    We hope everyone is staying safe, healthy, and sane. Hope we help you get through this week.

    Dawson's Critique Season 2, Episode 14—To Be Or Not To Be

    Dawson's Critique Season 2, Episode 14—To Be Or Not To Be

    In this first episode of the big two parter, Jack is forced by a sadistic teacher to read a poem in class that ends up making him cry. By lunch, the whole school is atwitter that Jack is gay.

    Joey is with Dawson when she hears, of course, and Dawson goes from being kind of a dick about it to giving her good advice.

    Pacey stands up for Jack, which puts him at odds with Andie.

    And Jen's storyline is completely out of touch with this main one, as she goes on a non-religious date with Ty, who will not take no for an answer, which we hate.

    We hope everyone is staying safe, healthy, and sane. Hope we help you get through this week.

    Dawson's Critique Season 2, Episode 13—His Leading Lady

    Dawson's Critique Season 2, Episode 13—His Leading Lady

    Dawson is supposed to start filming his new movie, 'Creek Times', and he still doesn't have someone to play Sammy, the character that is basically Joey in Dawson's interpretation of his relationship with Joey.

    As luck would have it, when Dawson shows up randomly at Joey's art class, the girl who is posing naked is an actress and he casts her in the movie! Rachel Leigh Cook, star of on of Julia's favorite movies, Josie and the Pussycats, is featured in this totally bananas episode of Dawson's Creek!

    Check out who is the real leading lady of this episode, and listen as Julia and Erin talk all things Dawson's Creek!

    We hope everyone is staying safe, healthy, and sane. Hope we help you get through this week.

    Dawson's Critique Season 2, Episode 12—Uncharted Waters

    Dawson's Critique Season 2, Episode 12—Uncharted Waters

    In our first episode recording at home and not at the studio, Erin and Julia navigate the rough waters of the Witter family, namely Pacey's dad and their very hard relationship.

    While Dawson, Mitch, Pacey, John Witter, and (surprisingly) Jack, all end up on a boat doing very manly fishing things together, the women of Dawson's Creek end up at the Leery's so Gail can interview them about the struggles of being teenage girls.

    Joey's weird competition with Jen finally reaches a head and might we say they reach an uneasy peace by the end?

    We hope everyone is staying safe, healthy, and sane. Hope we help you get through this week.

    Dawson's Critique Season 2, Episode 11—Sex, She Wrote

    Dawson's Critique Season 2, Episode 11—Sex, She Wrote

    In Erin's favorite episode of Season 2, it's a full-blown whodunit...literally. Abby finds a letter and knows someone had sex, and she is hellbent on getting to the bottom of who actually did it and who is just saying they did it.

    An episode that solidifies Pacey Witter's place in the hierarchy of television dream boats, this, as they say, changes everything.

The best Dawson’s pod!

This is the best Dawson’s pod out there! Loving rewatching a beloved series from my teens with the added bonus of listening to you witty ladies discuss it after. Really enjoy your relatable and personal inputs, especially on all the totally problematic 90’s Dawson’s themes in the light of modern eyes. Avidly awaiting your next episodes, keep up the great work!
