The Vampire Diaries' prom episode marked a milestone for the high-school-set show, and it brought back memories of other great TV proms. Watch as we highlight three of the small screen's most memorable prom episodes and why they gave us TV to remember.
Busy Philipps and Seth Rogen memorably played members of the out crowd in Freaks and Geeks, but viewers may have forgotten about their affair on Dawson's Creek. OK, it's less romantic than it sounds. When Joey comes a-knockin' looking for Audrey, she finds Bob (Rogen), who explains that they "porked" the night before. High comedy, I say!
Check out the clip after the jump.
James Van Der Beek brought back a whirlwind of emotions for Dawson's Creek fans everywhere when he returned to TV this week on Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23. We're happy to see him back on prime time and even more excited that we found this clip of him back on the Creek, making his now infamous "crying face," just minutes after he realizes that he's been dumped for his BFF Pacey. It's been years, but we still feel his pain. Just go, Joey, go!
We are so excited that the first installment of Suzanne Collins's trilogy The Hunger Games hits the big screen today. The gripping series follows 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen in a postapocalyptic world, where she must fight for her own survival and the survival of the ones she loves. And while the action-packed plot keeps you on your toes, it's the will-they-or-won't-they love triangle between Katniss, Peeta, and Gale that really kept us turning pages. Even the actress who plays the girl caught in the middle, Jennifer Lawrence, told Seventeen Magazine she had a hard time picking a favorite: "I think I was [team] Gale until he started getting a little too trigger-happy. Or maybe first Peeta and then Gale or Gale, then Peeta? I went back and forth. I flip-flopped."
It seems some of the best stories on screen center around the complications of choosing between two love interests, from classic films, to '90s TV shows, to huge franchises like Twilight and Harry Potter. We've rounded up some of the most famous love triangles with women in the center of the feud for you to weigh in on which guy you would choose!
It appears Katie Holmes unknowingly prepped for her role in this week's horror film Don't Be Afraid of the Dark during her days playing Joey Potter on Dawson's Creek. In this late '90s episode of the teen drama set on Friday the 13th, Holmes and James Van Der Beek's character, Dawson, discuss their tactics for trying to scare one another throughout the episode before quickly turning the conversation toward the morbid topic of how they might react to each others' deaths. Watch as Joey impersonates Dawson's reaction to her jumping out of the closet, and stay tuned until the end to see what surprise Dawson has left for Joey under the covers.
Dawson's Creek may be gone, but it's certainly not forgotten, and especially not by the folks at Funny or Die. After Joshua Jackson took to Comic-Con with Pacey-Con over the Summer, now his former costar James Van Der Beek is getting in on the self-parodying action with his new spoof, Vandermemes. The video and companion website feature gifs of Van Der Beek's ever-emotive mug (inspired by a classic crying gif from the '90s series). Both videos are pretty entertaining, but it's time for you to decide: which of these viral videos from the Dawson's Creek boys is funnier?
Paris Hilton breaks out a sexy swimsuit to film a music video in Spain, Joshua Jackson explains how he can spot closet Pacey fans, and MTV sets the stage for another Beyonce/Taylor Swift/Kanye West moment!

Joshua Jackson can't believe how many people were happy to see the revival of his Dawson's Creek character at his Comic-Con sideshow, Pacey-Con.
Joshua Jackson put on his best oversized bowling shirt and headed to San Diego this weekend for 2010 Pacey-Con, a celebration of the "greatest television character in television history . . . ever . . . period" from his former show Dawson's Creek. Unfortunately, his celebration of all things Pacey Witter ran into a bit of a snag thanks to the much larger event going on next door: Comic-Con. Just when we thought we couldn't love Joshua any more, this video is awesome. He reads some fan fiction aloud, tries to break into Comic-Con to find "Pacey-heads," and reveals the real reason he works on Fringe is to fund his convention. Don't miss any of our coverage and videos from the weekend's panels — long live Pacey-Con!
