Really? From recent media reports, I was beginning to think I might hate
this show as much as I hate "My So-Called Life" or "Ally McBeal".
Instead, I ended up liking it a lot more than I though I would...

Indeed... <evil grin>

I actually will sign off on this, in agreement. :)

Hmmm... Let me put a different spin on this: I *can* relate to the
*characters*, but I can't relate to the *circumstances*. I liked all of
the characters to certain degrees, though I obviously liked Dawson and
Joey more than Jen or Pacey (but aren't you supposed to?!).
But a 40 year old teacher going after a fifteen year old? Another teacher
belting him in a theater?! Jen taunting her grandmother like she did?
Joey's pregnant unmarried sister (and guardian!)?
Seems highly unbelievable to me...

Neither did I. Musical 'vignettes' have been so misused in TV since "Miami
Vice" that I actually think they should stop using them all together.
