Characters that annoyed me extremely then, don't as much now. Mind you Maria is still a waste of space... and Liz reminds me of Elena... which is odd.
I was slightly concerned that I try to watch it again, and think it was really stupid, like you tend to do with an older series.
In Dawson's Creek's case... it was exactly how i remembered it, which is most likely why I haven't watched them all yet. lolz
