i never understood the fascination of that show.... for one thing, every single character has the exact same sense of humor - and they all have brilliant minds and encyclopedic vocabularies to boot
I too, always find that distracting, it was quite pronounced in Scully from the X-Files, but she was one well-educated person so I could buy it, in real life there is always that one person that has read more and thinks faster then most. Dawson’s Creek, however, pure bullshit, if I ever went to that town my brain would melt.
I can see me ordering a latte and getting an asinine socio-political oral dissertation on the effects of my coffee purchase on the Columbian school system, or how my double shot speaks of my capitalistic greed and over-commercialization of my wants and desires, which she just might find kinda sexy.
Just give me my coffee you verbose, bloviating windbag, only to be lectured minutes later by the meter maid, as I am issued a parking ticket, on how unpaid parking tickets just widens the already stark gap between the haves and have-nots.
She will then cap everything off by nicely recommending an, up until now, virtually unheard of psychological school of thought that will help we with my obvious coffee addiction. Effectively exploding my brain.
