my review for Apartment 23 B* show

Dear Creators of this Show,

Please change the name to one of the following: "The Dawson Show," "Dawson, Sans Pacey," "The New Adventures of Old Dawson," "James Van Der Beek Express," "NKOTB. JK! JVDB!" or something similar. In addition, you should only feature James Van Der Beek and Krysten Ritter. Ditch the blond girl who is supposed to be the main character. With these improvements, you could potentially cut the length to about 15 minutes.


P.S. - You can keep the blond girl (I feel bad saying she should get fired), but you should silently and stealthily move the focus from her to James Van Der Beek. Or as creepy window guy just called him, "JVDB"

I cannot stop watching this show that I am pretty sure will not be picked up for a 2nd season. I am aware that "Apartment 23 B* show" is not the actual title, but "Don't Trust the B* In Apartment 23"? Seriously? I'm supposed to say that every time I reference this show? No.

Honestly, James Van Der Beek should win some kind of medal for this show. Everything scene featuring just makes my day. I am 8 minutes into this 21ish minute episode, and I've already forced the sis to read my typed rendition of several scenes, including:
  • "You should've come, it was awesome. They had tons of drugs and a baked potato bar."
  • "The BBC is here. They've loved me ever since I did that Guy Ritchie movie" - cut to Dawson speaking Brit street gibberish holding a gun in a track jacket

End result: If you love OR hate Dawson, I recommend checking this show out. It is great to eat your dinner to.

This whole revelation is doubly shocking due to the fact that after many, many viewings of ALL of Dawson's Creek, I absolutely HATED Dawson. I think that might be part of why every moment of JVDB playing JVDB and thriving off of his Dawson fame is pure glee for me. Krysten Ritter does a great job being his BFF and the B*, and I'm also partial to her due to her role on teen shows (Yay Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars!). Unfortunately, I don't share the love for June, the main character. I get that she's supposed to be the wide-eyed innocent from that area between New York and L.A., but I think she's trying a tad too hard. This episode features the B* coaching her to become a little more thick skinned, which results in June acting differently and me being able to cope with her more.
