Season 4 episode 1 us where Pacey & Joey come back from their Summer in the boat. I have bought the first 3 seasons but when I look at season 4 on Google Play Movies, the list of episodes starts from episode 2. Does anyone know why? If I download the season, will the 1st episode be on there? I would have no problem giving 5 stars for this show, but c'mon - we all know Pacey and Joey storyline is the best and this was and important episode in the group's situation.

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.
