Dawson's Creek is the most awkward shitstorm of writing and acting I have possibly ever seen from network television. And I can't stop watching. No thanks to LoveFilm instant watch.
This is one of those shows that I was aware of really only by title as a kid. I wasn't allowed to watch this. This, The O.C., and Degrassi were off limits, though I don't have any express memories of my parents explicitly saying I could not watch them. I do have memories of my father hollering at me to "turn off that sex show," followed by me defending it was just Mr & Mrs Matthews getting frisky on Boy Meets World.
