Joey and Dawson smile at each other under his coat while the rain comes down.

Season 2, Episode 10 “High-Risk Behavior”

The first part of a classic two-parter, “High-Risk Behavior” is the kind of episode that branded this show as “scandalous” and “sex-obsessed” in the 90s, but looks downright quaint in the post-Gossip Girl world. At the center of the episode we have the teen soap contrivance to end all teen soap contrivances: Jack ruins Joey’s figure drawing with his adorable clumsiness, and Joey just has to draw him in the nude.

Dawson’s Creek Drinking Game Rules: An Update

We’re a season and a half into our Dawson’s Creek Rewatch Project, and our drinking game rules have been serving us very well. (Our entries have ranged from zero to a whopping 29!) However, they were mostly written with the first season in mind, so here are a few updates for upcoming episodes:

Also, at least half of the snippets in the credits involve Carrie’s condition rather than the political/spying-related stuff.

Season 2, Episode 4 “Tamara’s Return”

So… I was definitely dreading recapping this episode. The worst thing to happen to the show (which the creator gamely stands by to this day) is back. I know the term “witch” is being reclaimed by feminists right now and I love it, but by the end of this episode I’m just like “Ding, dong, the witch is dead!” Continue reading →
