I'm pretty sure the show ended in what, 2002? Because I feel like I was a freshman in college when it ended. Maybe 2003 in the spring/summer. Either way, they seriously pretty much look the same, except for new hairstyles and some beards (well, on the dudes anyway).
Also, I'm sorry, but I'll forever see James Van Der Beek as Jonathan Moxon from Varsity Blues more than Dawson, but, ya know...dudes and football and whipped cream bikinis win for me.
But in all seriousness, SO cool to see them back together!
