D-Bag-O-Meter: Joshua Jackson

Dear Josh,

Can I call you Josh? Or even better, can I call you Pacey? Because I fell in love with you back when you were on Dawson's Creek and I still sort of love you. I don't know why really, but it's true. Perhaps it's because you always play smart, sarcastic, funny characters. Maybe it's just your rugged good looks or it might even be because I'm a closet fan of your show Fringe in spite of the fact that it's really gross and I have to close my eyes through entire scenes.

All kidding aside, the reasons I actually love you are quite simple: you're extremely hot and you've never humiliated yourself in public. I think that if we met in real life we'd probably run away together and get married and have lots of sarcastic babies. 

Yes, I know the chances of us meeting are slim and I already have a husband and a couple of kids, but they're super quiet. You'll hardly know they're there. Well unless you happen to take away a special treat from Jack. You do know some self defense moves though, right? I'm sure you must have picked up some of that stuff while filming all those movies and lord knows Dawson could have used a good ass whooping.

Anyways, just wanted to take a moment and congratulate you on being a non-douche. Oh, and kudos for skipping Ed Hardy, man scarves and other harbingers of douchiness. Well played.

Wow, so you haven't been salivating over him on FRINGE with me??? You can watch full episodes on if you didn't get the first season. Its one of my fav shows! I just hope they don't d/c it!

Oh and when I saw the title, I was comin' looking for a fight! But now that I see he got a Zero, I'm calming down. ;)

PurpleClover said...

Oh and I must add my daughter now crushes on him when they watch Mighty Ducks. lol. Poor kid. Wait till she finds out how old he is!

Jen said...

I love me some Pacey!! Honestly, he was on my top five until I saw (500)Days of Summer and Joseph Gordon Levitt knocked him off. I'm planning to catch on Fringe episodes so I'm pretty sure he will move back into the top 5 very soon.

While I fully agree with your assessment of non-D-bagginess, I do have to burst your bubble with this video of Josh wearing a "man-scarf":

Sarah Wylie said...

Haha, love this. LOVE Joshua Jackson. I started rewatching Dawson's Creek from season 1 and, I have to say, that Dawson kid really did need a good whooping.

Gorilla Bananas said...

Do you want his e-mail address?


Gorilla, are you being for real? B/c if that was an open invitation for his email, then hell yeah!

I gasped when I saw this post. I thought for SURE I was coming for a fight--I even had my guns out!

I LOVE him. I started watching Fringe solely b/c of him, but he'll always be Pacey to me. And I was Team Pacey All. The. Way. Both times I watched the series.

I'll even forgive him his man scarf, so long as he steers clear of Ed Hardy crapola.

Kelly H-Y said...

Now I'm going to have to check out 'Fringe'!

Meg said...

I gasped because at first I thought you were calling this dear, wonderful man a douche. What a relief to read on and find my love mirrored in your words.
The meter killed me. This is great, keep it coming.
Came over from JennyMac's recommendation.

Katie Anderson said...

Who is Jen because she is fun ny!

And now I have to add Fringe (and 500 Days of Summer) to my viewing pleashas.

That was "pleasures" with a funny accent - LOL

Oh how I love the D-Bag-O-Meter! And love that all of your readers got all nervous and bowed up like they were gonna have to fight you!

Did Gorilla just google his buddy Josh and is now offering his email??

P-Clo - Oh, I do watch Fringe, but I probably only get about half of every episode because I have to cover my eyes at the gross parts. I think he's just fabulous in that show. He's one of the main reasons I watch.

Jen - I'm dying to see 500 Days of Summer. Looks amazing! Oh and I love Joseph Gordon Levitt too. He was so cute in 10 Things I Hate About You and now he's older and hotter. As for the marve...I'm just going to pretend I didn't see that. Ok? Ok.

Sarah - No one on the planet has a larger head than Dawson Leary and no one wanted to kick that head in more than me.

Gorilla - Um..yes! Please? Are you serious? Are you really an ape? Can we be friends?

Jess - I am with you all the way. Love that you came here looking for a fight! Hee!

Kelly - Definitely watch Fringe. It's a little gross, but overall pretty entertaining. And there's Pacey. Lots and lots of Pacey. Can't go wrong.

One Sassy Girl - Welcome! Jenny Mac has some kick ass followers. Glad you came to visit. The D-Bag-O-Meter is a crowd favorite. Or maybe just our favorite. Either way, it's fun.

Katie - Jen is hilarious. You must check out her blog. You guys would get along famously, I think. Also, I really like when you use funny accents in your comments.


p.s. LOVE the pic you chose of Dawson. Cracks me up. Does that make me evil?

JennyMac said...

I (insert profanity) love this. I knew I found great company with you two. D-bag: one of my all time favorite expressions. D-bag meter? My new fascination. And Ed Hardy, all Ed Hardy attire wearers, and those drinking Ed Hardy wine are the Pantheon of D-bags. Dennis Rodman, attired head to toe in Ed Hardy = DBAG times ten.

Eva said...

Be still my Josh-loving, beating heart. If you actually get his email address and make contact, you'll have to post and update. :)

Tess said...

Man, I'm so out of it. I'll admit he's cute, but have never seen him before. I think I once saw a commercial for Dawsons Creek, or at least it sounds familiar. My poor friends.

Danyelle L. said...

I think I live under a rock. Of course, I don't have television reception. O:)

confused homemaker said...

love, love, love fringe. totally wasn't a fan of him on Dawson's Creek but then again I never watched the show; however, now I'm a fan. a total fan.

The AC Slater post inspired me to search for more D-Bag-O-Meters. And I almost doubted you ladies when I saw Joshua Jackson (aka the best part of Dawson's Creek and the primary reason I tune into Fringe each week) -- but then I exhaled when I realized that he got a non-D rating. Whew! We almost had a battle on our hands. (And I love how all the other commenters panicked too! He has such a loyal following.)

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
