Dawson’s Creek Season One

In 1998 nobody on the planet thought about owning shows on VHS or DVD. Why would they? Sure people recorded shows onto VHS but they were weird psychopaths that everyone would grow up to love. Any show you wanted you could catch in re-runs. *Smash Cut* NOW us marathoners crave DVD and streaming releases so we can close the shades, gather some snacks, and sit in the dark watching episode after episode of The Wire while peeing in milk bottles. Why am I explaining this? Because…. don’t lose your minds… on the DVDs and Netflix releases of Dawson’s Creek, “I Don’t Want To Wait” is not the theme song! It’s “Run Like Mad“. I still encourage you to play it in the background while you read this though. For a ton of old shows, Dawson’s Creek included, they just didn’t get the rights for home video releases of the show and why would they? They had no idea that the show would have such a profound impact on America’s older sisters. So how does Thrilliam like it?
