Season 2, Episode 21 “Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes”

By Nerdy Spice

Joey hugs Dawson from behind while Dawson crouches, in the middle of a dusty scene (mid-construction).

This episode chooses Dawson’s Creek’s favorite theme—people changing—and hammers it absolutely to death. Dawson’s final film assignment (and a highly unrealistic one, by the way, or at least one that indicates the high school is total crap – who gives a shit about drawing parallels to real life in a real film class?) is to compare a character arc from Casablanca to one from his own life. So basically, his plotline is itself a meta reference. Shot! Continue reading →

Recapping these episodes was a strange experience. Between his hilarious drunk antics in 2×16 and his sweet supportive side coming out in “A Perfect Wedding,” Dawson was the most shockingly tolerable version of himself. It was… disconcerting. Continue reading →

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.

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 →
