James Van Der Beek on the Paley Center’s Dawson’s Creek Panel

11 12 2009

“I was watching this little kid with really long hair in the pilot episode … it didn’t feel like me. It was interesting to kind of go back and revisit, but also put it to bed too. Now that it’s out on DVD … it almost felt like closing a chapter.”

Official Announcement for Dawson’s Creek: The Complete Series

1 09 2009

Last week TVShowsonDVD.com reported that the Dawson’s Creek Complete Series set would be released November 10.  As expected, they were right–and now they have more information to share.

This screenshot comes DIRECTLY from their Web site. For the full story, click the link.

Some thoughts…

1. Interesting choice not include Kerr Smith (Jack) on the cover art and what we can see from the inside art.  Yes, there was a core four but it really became a core five for a lot of viewers.  What do you think?

2. A little disappointing but not surprising that most of the extras aren’t new.

3. The new ones seem interesting–but we all know you can play Dawson’s Creek trivia anytime with me!

4. Not clear if the episodes have the original music, or the edited soundtracks that appear on the individual season sets.

5. Not clear if the “bonus CD” is a new compilation or one of the previously released CDs.

6. Interesting that it mentions an official Web site.  I assume they are referring to DawsonsCreek.com, but I don’t see how that counts as an extra.  It also hasn’t been updated in a few years.

7. Not clear if *all* the deleted scenes from prior sets, including the extended version of the series finale, will be included.  If it’s not, I highly suggest you still purchase that disc separately.

8. I wonder if any of the cast will comment on the set as we near the release date.  I’m sure someone from somewhere will ask them about.


Site of the Week

Dawson’s Creek ended nearly six years ago but its official Web site still exists.

DawsonsCreek.com has a lot of great features, including a detailed episode guide, lines to remember and media like screensavers,  audio interviews and clips.

Since the show doesn’t seem to be on the air anymore (if someone finds it, please let me know!) this is a great way to keep the memories alive.
