The Election - S2-E9

Plot hole: Season 2 picks up with everyone still in Sophomore year, which continues until the end of that Season. So we are presumably well into the Sophomore school year, and yet during this episode there are suddenly elections for the Sophmore President and Vice President. It doesn't make sense they would wait until this far into Sophomore year to be electing officers *for* the Sophomore year! Too much time has passed; normally elections like that would be held at the beginning of the year so the people elected can do their jobs longer, for the entire Sophomore year.

Suggested correction: As a suggestion: Most, but not all high schools are four years in length. My understanding is season one is actually their freshman year. Joey is debating going off to France. Season two begins, they shared their kiss, and must be ending freshman year approaching sophomore year in the next few episodes, meaning it isn't late at all to have class elections. Pacey, Dawson, and Joey all turn sixteen in season two, they had to have been barely sophomores.

Jen: Cute.
Jack: Gay.
Jen: Aren't they all?

Pilot (aka Emotions in Motion) - S1-E1

Trivia: There was an alternate scene filmed for the Pilot Presentation, where Tamara is first introduced in the Video Store with Pacey and Dawson. In this alternate scene; the location was an actual Video Store located in Southport, about 50 miles away from Wilmington, NC. They decided to reshoot the scene using a smaller Video Store in Wilmington that didn't look like a chain. Once the show was picked up for a Series, they needed a Video Store location that they could use easily every week. Also, in the alternate scene Tamara is wearing a more conservative outfit of black that covered her quite a bit. They put her in a much sexier dress for the aired version. Tamara's wardrobe and the location were changed to give a better tone to the show.
