Thoughts on Dawson's Creek
Ok, so I'm watching the 3rd episode of Dawson's Creek, you know the one where Dawson discovers that his Mom is cheating on his Dad, and I'm thinking to myself that this show has some of the worst dialogue I've ever encountered. I know this is not a new observation and would have been much more relevant 9 years ago, but these kids are supposed to be 15, yet have vocabularies of English professors. I'm an Ivy League grad with a degree from a top tier law school (Not to toot my own horn, but BEEP BEEP) and these little snot nosed kids are putting together sentences and using words I barely comprehend. For example Joey and Dawson were big emoting about life and as she gets up to leave she says, "Well Dawson, I got to get going, the subtext is killing me." I watched that whole scene intently and have absolutely no idea what she was alluding to, so how the hell did the average tween and Anthony Diraimondo, who were watching this show religiously at this point, know what was going on?
