I was in the 3rd grade when this came out. I remember seeing commercial after commercial promoting the show and critics praising the show as well as rave reviews about the show and Katie Holmes before it came out. It premiered in Jan 1998. I watched it and that was the only time I watched it because I forgot about the show. I started watching it again during its 3rd season b/c there was nothing to watch and got hooked I had to go back and see the beginning again to catch up. I wish tv was still like this.

I was thirty when it came out and i watched every week. I own the dvd set. This show leaves me wanting more. The fact that there is no more makes me sad. This isn't just for teens. It makes us older ones remember loves lost and found. It even can make us change whatevers wrong in our life. Thanks "Dawsons Creek"!
