"Dawson's Creek" Exec Reveals There Was An Alternate Ending, And His Mom "Hates Him" For Not Choosing It

- Page 1

There are a few decisions I've made that my mom probably isn't too proud of. But I don't think any of them have hit the level of "not ending your TV show with the finale she wanted." Unfortunately for Dawson's Creek showrunner Kevin Williamson, that's exactly what level he's at. He and fellow showrunner Paul Stupin had differing opinions on how it should all play out.

Dawson's Creek was our ultimate guilty pleasure as teens, and honestly still is. You'd be hard-pressed to find a teenager from the 80s and 90s who didn't enjoy the weekly indulgence of our version of The O.C...but with less guns and drugs.

Dawson, Pacey, Joey, and Jen were just trying to get through high school without any major disasters and hopefully with a little romance. The biggest division between fans was whether or not Joey (played by Katie Holmes) should end up with Dawson or Pacey.

The answer, of course, is Pacey. She belongs with Pacey. THANKFULLY, that's how the show ended, and my teenage heart didn't have to deal with all the emotions that would have overwhelmed me if it had been the other way around.

But I recently learned that my young, impressionable heart was almost shattered into 10 trillion pieces thanks to stupid Stupin.

With such an impressive cast, you'd expect a guaranteed hit, but it received mixed reviews.

Founder Of Toys 'R' Us, Charles Lazarus, Has Passed Away At 94

Going to Toys 'R' Us was literally the highlight of our childhood. Each and everyone of us would run through those sliding doors and would immediately turn into little Tasmanian devils and tear through the store as though we had no knowledge of manners. The reason that we got to enjoy this epic experience was because of Charles Lazarus. Lazarus founded his company in 1948 and every since he has watched his company grow. That is, until this week. The first toy store he opened was not called Toys 'R' Us, but instead "Children's Bargain Town." He knew that the


The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if
