616 - That Was Then

Happy 2020! We're back and in the homestretch of our final episodes... and what a nice way to return to the show: with a return to Capeside – and the show's "heart"!

From Traci: "Before we began recording this, I accidentally deleted a handful of production notes so there are a couple of things I forgot – the most important being a shout-out to one of our listeners, Cat, who started this fun 'book bingo' that is Dawson's Creek themed! Go check it out here!"

615 - Castaways

We are unapologetic Poey shippers, and we're OK with that.

From Traci: "One thing I didn't get a chance to talk about during the episode this week is that I think Joey may be the first relationship for Pacey where he didn't feel like he needed to 'save' someone. And maybe that was a big part of why they ended up falling apart back in high school. Pacey felt inferior when he was with Joey because he felt like everyone was judging him, and that wore him down eventually. Not that that excuses his behavior and the way he broke up with her, but I think that also says a lot about how Pacey has always looked back on his relationship with Joey with regret."

From Charles: "Unrelated to the actual substance of the episode, but another reason I liked Castaways so much is the realization of the childhood dream of.. getting locked inside a big box store (especially with someone who is more or less your best friend)."

Also... this is our last episode of the de…

614 - Clean and Sober

It's time for a party! At least we get some screen time with each of the characters, although it would be nice to have stronger stories for Jack and Jen. But what's new...

Also, it is a little wild that this is Emma's last episode and she and Pacey have pretty much not spoken (that we know of) since their week at the aquarium. The lack of closure is so frustrating on this show sometimes (OK, most of the time) and it's apparently making Charles very unsure of how much to invest in relationships on this show...

From Traci: "In case anyone was wondering... I did get my FedEx package delivered."

612 - All the Right Moves

Would you buy a collection of short stories about Worcester?

Sorry for the brief episode this week! Charles is studying for finals, but seeing as how we didn't have, like, half of the main characters in the episode this week... 47 minutes feels like that's what 6x12 deserves, right?

611 - Day Out of Days

In the style of Pete Wells' New York Times review of Guy Fieri's Times Square restaurant from 2012, Charles presents his thoughts on 6x11:

"DAWSON’S CREEK, have you watched Day Out of Days? Did you turn on your TV? Did you watch the show? Did it live up to your expectations? 

Did despair grip your heart when Jack only showed up for six minutes? Or when the days of the week started fading in and out for no apparent reason? Were you bewildered about Pacey and Emma’s relationship? Jen at The Stand? 

Do you remember season one, when all the characters were likeable and got good screen time and you cheered for all of them? (You must you sure referenced them a bunch this episode.) What accounts for the difference?"

End scene.

Also! It's the return of What Pacey Wore... how are we feeling about this orange lewk?
