Factual error: During the Pilot of Dawson's Creek, Joey mentions to Dawson that they are about to "Start High School" soon, implying they are just entering High School for the first time. When Jen shows up in the taxi for the first time, they also tell her they are Sophomores as well as she. I assumed this must be a High School that begins with Sophomore grade, meaning Middle School in their area must have been 6th or 7th through 9th grade. The entire first two Seasons of the show are their Sophomore Year. But in Season 3, during their Junior Year Jen meets Henry, a "Freshman". He is repeatedly referred to in the show as a Freshman, although technically Capeside High is supposed to be 10th through 12th grade. This makes no sense timewise, as there are no Freshmen at that school. The main characters all started High School as Sophomores. Also-there is a trivia section on one of the DVDs that lists certain classes/teachers the main characters had as Freshman English, etc. But since they had those classes/teachers in the show, they were really Sophomores which further verifies there are no Freshmen at the school.
