I like Dawson more than Joey so I'll disagree but you already know that
There weren't that many random girls for Pacey, I remember a couple before Audrey but that's it

It might be because they based Dawson in LA initially, so it would of been hard to make him to focal point considering all of the other main characters were in Boston. All of his scenes were with brand new characters, at least some of Joey's were with Jen/Jack/Grams and of course Audrey being added to the main cast. It's as if they had to choose someone based in Boston to take on the lead role and naturally they chose Joey for this.

At the time it made sense to send Dawson to LA considering that's what he'd been working towards it all of his life but in reality maybe the convenient film school in Boston he later attended should have existed from the start. I mean it was was inevitable they would all end up in the same place, they had to for the show to work. DC is mostly about friendship so I didn't really enjoy Dawson's scene's in LA, it just didn't feel right, him being there on his own. I liked it when he moved back to Boston and embarked on his relationship with Jen, he was more likeable than ever before when this happened.

Agreed. DJen in S5 was pure .

But they didn't have Dawson in LA for even one entire episode in the beginning of S5. He came back at the end of 501. So no need to change the focal character for that reason.

I didn't like him sleeping around with Melanie Shae Thompson (blah, I really hated her lol). Or Gina/Rina. Or kissing Alex. He also slept with Karen. In the past he was more of a relationship guy. I was glad he settled down with Audrey, even though I thought they were a mismatch for the longrun. Still, they were fun.

Well I think I blocked those girls out of my mind Cause I didn't remember that many.

I think James asked for some time off that season to work on some stuff. So maybe that's also why they shifted the focus on Joey. I still think they should have distributed that screentime better between the characters

That's interesting and makes a lot of sense. I agree with you, it would have been nice to see an equal amount of Joey, Jack, Jen and Pacey (if they had decided Dawson wouldn't feature as the main character).

It's not even as if Joey's stuff was that interesting, I mean the whole Professor Wilder thing was blah. The only scene with them I liked was the last one, when he published her story. I did love her relationship with Audrey. It was lovely watching them grow close, they had some lovely and quite funny moments.

S6 was better for Joey I think.

I wasn't a huge fan of Joey by the time season 5 aired (she was my fav until season 3 though) but I wouldn't have minded more screentime if her storylines were actually interesting. I like her friendship with Audrey but actually what I loved the most about it was Audrey
I would have loved to see more of my favourite characters (Jen, Jack, Dawson) but I know I'm being selfish here

I agree about Joey's SL this season. It wasn't so great. I could've cared less about Prof Wilder, and I actually love that actor when he's doing comedy. The Joey/Nice Guy SL was lame as well. Also DJo and Joey/Charlie... actually just Charlie in general, blah. Hated the PJo amnesia, but I'm glad they still had their friendship. It could've been worse. Like S2, complete isolation lol. I too loved her friendship with Audrey. She changed my life, you know. Audrey was the perfect person for Joey to experience college with. She really pushed her buttons, in a good way.

So many things The triangle pretty much killed her for me actually, they way she treated both boys, I had a hard time understanding her. After season 4 she should have stayed low for me to love her again and he didn't happen.

Audrey was one of the best thing about season 5

Joey and Charlie was just so wrong....and so predictable that he would "fall in love with her" However Jen and Charlie I LOVED. They had great chemistry and their episodes (before he became the womanizer from Boston Bay) were so cute. I would have liked to have seen them last a bit longer actually.






But then later came Dawson and Jen which I adored so I guess it's not so bad.

Awww, couldn't agree more. I loved their friendship.

^^Aw, they were cute before he turned out to be a sleeze. At the very least, they were pretty together.

I honestly wanted to punch Joey in the face in 100LYFH, when Jen was trying to look out for her.

I loved the scenes with Jen and Charlie when Dawson was filming that movie with Charlie and Audrey in Guerilla Filmaking. Jen was so comical.



Oliver: Where are we gonna find an actor who fits the bill, you know? Somebody's who's... Sexy, charismatic and attractive. And not burdened with a soul.
Dawson: Exactly. Where we gonna find a guy like that in 6 hours?
Jen: [Laughs] I used to date him.
Dawson: That's not a bad idea.
Jen: Oh, yes it is. It's a terrible idea. And you would never make me do that, would you, Dawson?



Charlie: Jen Lindley. How ya been?
Jen: Busy. Just trying to wrap my head around this whole "lemon diet coke" phenomenon.
Charlie: I knew it. I knew you could never live without me.
Jen: Hmm. Oh, on the contrary, I actually plan to spend the rest of my life living without you, Charlie, but... I need a favor.


Jen: A world of pain. Charlie, one step closer, and you're entering a world of pain.


Jen: Are you seriously gonna give me a reason to slap the silly out of you?! Hey. Hey. Come on, slim. Come on! 'Cause I’m feelin' a little bit crazy today!



Jen: Dawson, he's evil. Isn't it entirely possible that he is the antichrist, packed into the body of a handsome musician?
Dawson: I need you to do me a big favor.
Jen: You want me to kill him.

As much as I'd love to hate Jen/Charlie, I can't because they're too damn pretty together. And Michelle and Chad had good chemistry, imo. I just would've liked to see have Jen have one fully functional, long standing relationship in that season and not have two which just kind of fall apart.
