I don't believe this has been mentioned here. Hidden clip on the Dawson's Creek Series Finale DVD.

1. Go to your "Special Features" menu.
2. Underline "Main Menu".
3. Press the "up" button on your remote twice.
4. Press the "left" button on your remote twice.
5. Press the "enter" button on your remote once.
6. Press the "right" button on your remote twice.
7. The letter in Dawson's hand should be yellow. Hit enter

The Easter egg is a clip of various cast members giving the crew thanks for the years of work put into the show.

The above button combination is kind of tricky to pull off.
I also got to the clip by manually entering Title 7, Chapter 1 on my remote. Or it may have been Chapter 7, Title 1.

You are really brave to expose yourself here like this! Posted Image

But seriously, I didn’t get this because I think it’s ridiculous that they are trying to cash on this by presenting only 2 episodes and in 4:3 non-widescreen! At least they could have presented it in widescreen! Season by season is the only way to go. Too bad I’m not planning on getting the sets after season 2.

Um, even though it was filmed in widescreen, I'm pretty sure it was composed for 4:3 though.

Also, I'm actually glad they've made the finale available, because I'm not buying seasons 4-6, but I found the finale to be well made and a nice treat for fans who liked the early years.

That's exactly why I held out. Well, that and the high SRP of $24.99.

One interesting tidbit: Apparently this disc has a few extras including footage from the alternate pilot (with a different actor playing Dawson's dad). Why the hell was this not put on the season 1 set instead??

As for the aspect ratio, trust me, it may have been shot in widescreen, but it has definitely been composed for 4:3. I've seen all of seasons 4 and 5 in WS on German TV, and some of the WS goofs are baffling (clearly visible lighting rigs, lip-synch by normally off screen actors and such).
