33 Thoughts I had when watching Dawson's Creek for the first time

I don't know about you, but I missed Dawson's Creek the first time around.  I think I was a little too young and it was a little too grown up and American so either I didn't watch it or wasn't allowed to. 

However, recently when I was scrolling through Channel4 online I saw they had all six seasons - and I love a binge, so I decided to watch the first episode and share my thoughts with you as I go.
