I’m fairly certain that you don’t have to even be a Dawson’s Creek fan to fully appreciate Joey & Pacey as a couple. Really. If you’ve never seen the show and you’ve been curious - please just watch the third season. It’s the season that leads up to them getting together and it… is… amazing. I re-watch it every few years and I still get chills from it. It’s just perfect television.
You can watch it on Hulu if you’re in the States.
