Tread Perilously – ‘Dawson’s Creek: Lovelines’

Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.

This Week: Dawson’s Creek‘s “Lovelines”

Tread Perilously‘s New Class continues with a final season episode of Dawson’s Creek called “Lovelines.”

When Jen successfully books Loveline hosts Dr. Drew Pinsky and Adam Carollla for a college show, Audrey gets excited to meet Dr. Drew. Jen, meanwhile, gets stressed out and breaks up with C.J. (Jensen Ackles!). Across the dorm room, Joey’s trust issues with Eddie leave him believing she is repulsed by his touch … which is a totally reasonable guess on this occasion. Finally, Jack wonders if his boyfriend is flirting with a dude who’s clearly looking for a threesome. Will the incredibly questionable advice of Dr. Drew and Adam help these couples resolve their problems? Oh, also, where’s Dawson?

Justin’s daughter discovers Pokemon. Erik’s 20+ year dislike of Dawson’s Creek is reaffirmed. The pair differ on The Faculty while launching into a discussion of the reference-laden dialogue favored by Dawson’s creator Kevin Williamson and the sound of video store nerds from the 1990s. They also reminisce about Loveline‘s formative years in the Los Angeles radio market. Justin theorizes Eddie would sell Joey to the Humungus if given the chance. Erik and Justin create the Supernatural spinoff that would have found success and stumble into another of the Batman’s many crimes.
