Huh? What? Dawson's Creek? Debbie, that's been off the air foreva. Yeah, I know. But I was thinking today about guilty pleasures. You know those things that you do that maybe you shouldn't do but when you do, it really makes you happy...guiltily happy. TV is
sometimes usually like that. My biggest guilty pleasure right now is "The Office." That is must-see-guilty-pleasure-TV for me. I can miss Idol and not care, but I can't miss "The Office." So what does that have to do with Dawson's Creek? Well, I never watched the show when it was actually on TV. As a matter of fact, I didn't watch it until last year when I found it on Noggin one sleepless night. I watched one episode and finally understood why it was so popular when it was on. It's actually really really good...great writing, smart dialogue, great stories, loads of character development, beautiful scenery, funny, endearing, great opening song, (that I added to my playlist today) etc. So we joined Netflix so I could rent the series and watch at my own pace. It took me 10 months to go through all six seasons, but I really enjoyed it. The early years were exceptional, the latter years not so much as usually happens when the original writers go on to bigger and better things although I'm not sure what bigger and better things they went on to...but it was still entertaining and you were either a Pacey/Joey fan or a Dawson/Joey fan. I started out a fan of the latter, but became a big fan of the former. If you watched, you know what I'm talking about. To me it was a guilty pleasure, because let's face it, it was a teeny bopper show and well, I left my teens in the last century.
Now it's your turn, what's your favorite guilty pleasure? Come on, everyone has one. I love hearing what people have to say. And if you were a Dawson's fan, were you happy with the ending?
