Dawson's Creek is a true reflection
of the utter, blatant stupidity
. Who hasn't sat there compelled
to watch the show despite the obvious inevitability
of each situation - whether it be the relationship between Joey and Dawson
or whichever sordid
tale the writers
have decided to squeeze into the 1 hour timeslot
this week. You, as the viewer, know exactly how it is going to end. That is the simple beauty of it all.
Dawson's Creek IS life, life IS Dawson's Creek. We as humans are continually, foolishly placing ourselves in situations whose circumstances entail failure of one sort or another. And yet, we don't know how to stop ourselves. Like watching sappy television characters we are watching our own inevitable melodramas play out.
Or maybe I'm reading too much into this.
