NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Dawson's Creek's is a coming of age story focusing on four teenagers in the quaint, fictional town of Capside, Mass. The show was the first mega-hit for the fledgling WB network. Its premier tagline "It's the end of something simple. And the beginning of everything else." is a good summation of the show. We join Joey, Dawson, Pacey, and Jen as they begin their sophomore year of high school, just as things are getting complicated. The show, the Dawson character particularly, is partially auto-biographical for its creator Kevin Williamson, and was taped near his hometown in Wilmington, North Carolina.
