"Dawson's Creek", "Buffy", and the idea of a "One True Pairing"

Okay, I know that veeeerrrrry few people on my friends list watch "Dawson's Creek" (1998-2003). But the series is ending this year, and it's got me thinking about stuff and so I'll probably be writing a few journal entries about it, despite my embarrassment to admit that I even watch the damned show. But, hey, sing along with me, friends! It's my journal, I'll look dumb if I want to, dumb if I want to, dumb if I want to. You'd look dumb too, if it happened to you...

Anyway, since "Dawson's Creek" (1998-2003) and "Buffy" (1997-2003) are both ending this season, the simultaneity of the series endings has gotten me thinking about why it is that I'm a firm believer in the Joey/Dawson pairing primarily because of its strong set-up in the first 2 or 3 seasons ... and yet I am not a Buffy/Angel believer even though the series began with the same sort of set-up. I know this probably interests no one but me, but I'm writing it for me anyway. :)

The concept of a 'One True Pairing' ... why do I buy it on 'Dawson's Creek' but not on 'Buffy'?Collapse )
