It was actually pretty good! Some clever lines and bits, and the "*****" is hot! A keeper. I like the way they deal with the TV star guy and work in some fellow actors in crazy ways. Pretty inventive.

I find myself feeling guilty at laughing during this show... I had DVRed the 7 episodes last season and just got around to watching them in time for the season premier last week... I'm glad I did. It's quirky-funny, which is my kind of funny.

Also... Van Der Beek essentially reprising his self-send-up routine from Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back is hilarious.

I do wonder, though...

When people in real life used to approach him and confuse him with his fictional "Dawson" persona... he could easily say "Dawson is a character I play on TV... that's not who I am."

But... I wonder how he handles his over-enthusiastic fans now who see him playing "himself" :)

I hate to say this, wait no I don't... I told you so. :)

He was on Fallon the other night and referred to his character on Don't trust as "Fake James" or something like that. And whenever he said his "character's name" he, and Jimmy, did the whole air quote thing.

Missed it last season, is the Dawson's Landing guy supposed to be gay or what? He shows no interest in either girl and the "*****" discovered his gay hookup app on his phone. Yet this ep didn't feature him interested in guys either.

I think I like this show because each character is so fully committed to their own insane reality. It is very NY, I know people like that. And it's funny--very hip showbiz references. And the ***** is hot. A show without a hot ***** is not a show.

It's Dawson's Creek and no he's not gay.

He's playing "himself" on the show. His "character" isn't gay at all. You should watch last season. It's only like 6 episodes I think and available on Hulu.

His assistant, definitely gay.

Where to begin...

Dawson's Creek...

The "*****" put the gay hookup app on his phone so that she could track him.

The pilot episode introduced the fact that "*****" and Dawson had dated but decided they were better as friends.

Dawson's assistant is clearly gay... but I haven't seen anything on the show to indicate Dawson himself is playing a gay character.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

It's really good to see Krysten Ritter get a juicy part, and she shows us she can more than handle it; I've been rooting for this girl to get something like this for years, both because I think she is that talented (and in a unique quirky way) and she is also smokin' hot, and who doesn't want the smokin'-est actresses to be the ones you can tune into every week? Both leads are great in this show, and the writing is certainly above par for this type of show.

I think these writers know how to do "edgy" while not crossing the line to "disgusting". It's really clever how they present the outrageous in a way that does not turn people off. The opposite of this would be Chelsea Handler, everything she ever said or did, and every show she has been involved with. She has had opportunities to shape "edgy" shows like this and each time she completely blows it out her %%%. What a useless blob of protoplasm. It's OK to not have talent, but pretty annoying to have no talent and be convinced that you actually do, and to bend over for a network president to get there.

+1 on Krysten Ritter, she's terrific! Chelsea Handler...is there a vomit emoticon handy?? The only audience I imagine her having is women who are so relieved there's actually someone on TV LESS attractive than they are that they fall in love with her. Zero talent, brutally unattractive, not funny. I avoid at all costs.

Everybody's so fanatical over whether it's Dawson's Creek or Landing, that suggests you actually watched that show?? Yikes.

Ah, the ***** put the gay hookup app on there herself! Nice touch. The show really does give you a quick hit of classic NYC characters. Having lived there, the characterizations are not as broad as it may seem!
