  1. oh man i miss the anouncer voice saying " WB 33" instead of "CW" and "on the WB's new Tuesday." Brings back memories. Dawson's Creek, Buffy, Charmed, I miss those shows. Need to rewatch.

  2. The WB: November 11, 1998 Schedule:
    8-9:00 – Dawson's Creek – The Dance 9-10:00 – Charmed – The Wedding From Hell

  3. I still have all my tapes from when I recorded Dawson's creek and buffy and angel and Charmed but do not know if they work anymore.
