  • Great show. Lots of drama. Great characters

    10
    When I first heard of The OC, I thought it was one of those shows you feel like you\'ve seen a thousand times before. I was totally wrong. The OC is packed with drama. Very intense show at times and that is what keeps me at the edge of my seat for 40 minutes everytime I watch the latest episode. But you cant make a show without good characters, and The OC has amazing characters and cast. Everyone of them have their own personalities and their own thing that makes the characters very interesting to watch episode after episode. The reason that its so popular is that many of us youths experience some of the same problems as the people in The OC has to go through. So my conclusion is that The OC is one of the best shows that has ever aired on television. Legendary!
  • The O.C has been a fabulous piece of Television that has influenced the lives of many over the years that it has aired. Congrats! And farewell.

    The very moment i began watching The O.C, i fell in love with its quirks, scandals and of course...drama. The thing that drew me to the show at the time was its popularity...but as i got into it, i figured out why it was becoming the most popular teen drama on television. I loved the idea of a kid from the wrong side of the tracks, suddenly sweeped up into a world far away from run down suburbia. Newport Beach was portrayed as so far out of Ryan\'s world...the people the scenery and the life. How he would adjust is probably what intrigued me the most.

    The Orange County \"bubble\" was explored in depth throughout the show\'s four seasons as we were invited into the world of 2 families. The Cohens and The Coopers were the main focus and schoolfriends, work colleagues and shadows from the past added to the show\'s spotlight. The legend of the \"Core four\" began early into the show\'s first season and continued until the departure of Marissa, in season 3. Ryan, Seth, Marissa and Summer were a special group of teens who had been through a huge amount of traumas together...strengthening their bonds in the process. Fun was also to be had, as the show was hardly just about misfortunes, although this played a big part. As my favourite characters of the show, Ryan, Marissa Seth and Summer were fantastic...whether together or apart they filled the TV screen with life...whether in good times or bad. Kirsten and Sandy were the moral centre of the show, and loved by all. Some say they held the show together, through the good times and the bad. They became \"real\" parents to Ryan...as Seth became a real brother. Julie was always the wooden spoon stirring the pot. She kept everyone on their toes wondering what she was going to do next. Goldigging was her main forte, however, as time went by she mellowed. She became a \"person\" with morals and that was a huge step for the lady from Riverside.

    In closing...i\'d like to congratulate Josh Schwartz for creating a fantastic world...and inviting us to view it. I\'d like to thank the actors for making the show what it was and filling every episode with excellence. And to quote Sandy: Even though the O.C. is gone...it won\'t soon be forgotten.
  • The O.C. will stop at the right time. 4 seasons, we enjoyed this show, and now it will all come to a well deserved clossure. We should be happy!

    9.8
    We all agree The O.C. was a great show from beginning to (hopefully) end.

    Shouldn't we just be happy that it can rest in peace with a great ending? There is nothing as bad as a show dying, like Gilmore Girls for an example. We've been through good and bad, we've seen people come and go and we've seen incredible character developments!

    The basic storyline for The O.C. story is a messed up kid (Ryan) moving in with this family and nabourhoud that looks perfect from the outside. As we can see in this years outstanding Chrismukuh episode, this kid moving to California was the greatest thing that could happen to this 'perfect' world.

    What can happen with Ryan, has happened, his mother, ex girlfriend, brother and now also his father have made there apearance on the show and they all got a storyline and clossure they deserved. Now with 7 episodes to go there are only a few things to happen and we should be happy with that. We will all be sad when the end is there, but looking back on the 4 seasons, we can only be happy if you ask me.

    I hope, sooner or later, everyone can put this behind him/her-self and be proud on what The O.C. has become. To end my message, I'm happy to see that Josh feels it this way. There is nothing as good as ending a show at its highlight.

    Thank you Josh, and thank you cast of The O.C. I enjoyed everything!
  • The OC follows the rich and wealthy occupants of Newport Beach, Orange County. This seemingly perfect town has a lot of dirty secrets and hidden pasts from secret children to accounts stealing money and back again, this show has it all.

    8.5
    Now in it's fourth season, this show has been a huge success and it is plain why. The acting has been top class and the story lines, although they do seem to repeat, are outstanding. In saying that you might begin to wonder how so many bad things can keep happening to the same two unfortunate families but go figure. The inhabitants of glorious Newport Beach are constantly faced with new demons which of course makes for some great viewing.

    The incredible drama in this show coupled with frequent hilarious one-liners and oh-so-cute romance make this show one to watch out for.
  • Just a bunch of kids from different sides of life although living in the same area who have much different problem but kearn to help one another and hopeuflly help themselves

    10
    This show is amazing, I have bth seasons on DVD and i just love it. It is drama that i can see and not actually be in. I am very mad for the station cancelling it because some kids that watch this have gone through what they have and can feel not alone in the world.
  • Simply amazing and fans will not dissapointed

    10
    An amazing show one that should never be cancelled old fans from season 1 who may have lost interest in seasons 2,3 should come back to season 4 as they would not be dissapointed so far, all the drama and comedy keeps the show fresh and full of surprises. Looks like Josh and the writers have listened to the fans as the o.c is back to its best i personaly think fox should listen to the fans aswell and not cancel it and keep it on as it will only get better and better, all we need is for more people to take an intrest in the show again and get those ratings up.
  • I keep hearing that the OC has made this huge comeback... I never thought they left. I am a huge fan of the show. I've been watching ever since the pilot, and I have loved every episode... even the “average” ones people like to put down.

I agree it was a bold move, but personally, I don't think it makes the show any less enjoyable. I love this show, and I'm always anxious to see what they come up with next!
  • This sitcom is the best of the best, I mean When I watched The O.C in first time, I was suprised

    10
    This sitcom is the best of the best, I mean
    When I watched The O.C in first time, I was suprised. Then I watched every part of The O.C and I was delight on every action in this sitcom. The O.C have a greatcharacters , for instance Ryan, Taylor, Seth, Summer, Sandy and others. I was disappointed, that Marissa died, but her part to assumed Taylor and she is better now I think, because her character was change, when she good know Ryan and she struggled for Ryan and I like it. Now I delight for every part of fourth season an I hope, that the capital characters find their happyness. That s my dream, so as The O.C continue in 5.season

    10
    I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT.
    Kaitlin Cooper...MY IDOL.Shes like sooo biiitcchhyy and it makes the show worth watching! ! ! ! She even looks like Marissa ! [R.I.P Marissa by the way]
    Oh and i hate julie cooper. OMFG i hate her so much but i dont know where the show would be without her! she thinks shes 16 again and its fricken hilarious.
    But i must say ... i thought the OC woud be ovah without marissa! Hell, was i wrong..its just as good! Seth and Ryan are still sensationally hot.
    So its officiall..The Oc is the greatest show ever to be made. =D
    xxxx
  • the oc rocks!! season 4 is the best season ever with new surprises each episode. no chance of it getting cancelled now. just the show to put you in the right mood when ur feeling down.<br /> fingers crossed for season 5 ^_^

    10
    who knew that when i bought the first season off my friend in the summer of 2002 that this would be my favorite show and i would be religiously watching each and every episode to this very day; 4 and a half years later. well so far the 4th season has been spectacular, this has been by far the best season ive ever season out of all the shows i watch(smallville,prisonbreak,heroes,lost). the oc season 4 is really trying hard not to get cancelled and is well deserving for a full season and should be granted a new season for next year.

    its never too late to get into the o.c...
  • Season 4 is better than than season 2 and 3 combined. It\'s almost equal or possibly even better than Season 1.

    10
    Man, whoever quit watching The OC just because Marissa left and season 3 was a bummer, made a bad choice. This season has brought such a more lighter OC than in the past seasons. There is still drama, but has more comedy, which is really appealing. I mean, with all of Marissa\'s problems she was having, it became kind of depressing to watch. But now with Taylor, she just makes me laugh all the time, and she is gorgeous. Honestly, forget about the ratings. If you are like me and love to watch The OC, even if it has poor ratings,but just can\'t stop being addicted to it, then just watch it. Even if this is the last season, let\'s just enjoy each episode.
  • Suprisingly The OC is back on track with Season 4, made me remember why i have watched it!

    8.5
    Meet the OC Again! but hey it's missing a member! Marissa cooper have left us, but the show still continues, while the rest of the gang deal with her death and try to get their life back at track!

    Amazing new season which shows OC can still prove its still has more to present!
  • NO C

    5.0
    The O.C. is just more upper class suburbia facing \"tough problems\" becuase of their burdens of luxury. The only thing worse than the concept of the show is the acting and the writing. The only redeemable parts of the show are Rachel Bilson who is smoking hot, and the guy who plays Seth and used to be on the Sausage Factory becuase he is mildly funny. In all fairness even though I can not stand this show, I can turn that from dislike and lack of interest into real hatred because of the undeserved popularity. Far too many people not only watch but adore this show with no reason to. This show belongs with any other terrible daily soap opera, the only difference is the budget and music (most of which sucks anyways). I wouldn\'t hate this show if it weren\'t for other shows on Fox that have good writing, good acting, and intelligent fans getting cancelled too soon over and over while this show, which ran out of steam after the pilot, gets renewed over and over for no forseable reason.
  • This is the best show I've ever watched! I am in love with The O.C.!

    10
    The O.C. is my all-time favourite tv show. I could watch it forever and never get bored. It has heart and humour, great characters and great storylines, the best music and amazing actors. It is full of drama and so enjoyable to watch. I have never been so obsessed with a tv show!
    Season One was amazing and Season Two was brilliant also. Season Three was quite disappointing but still worth watching and now it's back wait an incredible Season Four, completely reinvented and i love it! Each episode is better than the previous and it's quickly recovering from the disastrous Season Three, hopefully it's not cancelled just because people are missing out on the best show on tv.
  • Wellcome to The Orange Country, where the troubles are in eeeevery place!

    10
    It´s one of the best shows I have ever seen. The characters, the beach, the partys of this members are unbeliable, I really like it. One of the best of the show, in my opinion, it´s Ryan Atwood, the guy you will never meet your mother- I mean this character, is always in trouble, always figthing with every guy who touch his girl, and never let them go away.
    Of course, the other cast are very good characters: Seth, Marissa(not for more long), Summer, The Choen´s, and of course Julie Cooper. All of they make the show one of the Best. Whacht it!
  • I really don't know why I watched this, but it sure had something to do with Seth Cohen :P

    10
    Cause I think he's so cute. anyways, I love the storyline of the OC. Bad boys in places where they should not be is not priginal, but like, who cares? I'm glad they took Ben for it, cuase Ryan is totally perfect for him. Adam Brody as dorky Seth Cohen is so cute. He's a bit childish, but not in an annoying way. Summer started off as a dumb brunette, but I'm glad that she have met Cohen, becuase without him, she would be so less. He tought her a lot. Marissa is fierce as always, and it's a shame that they killed her off. Taylor is perfect to replace her, and I'm sorry for Marissa-fans, cause I don't meant it as a mean thing. I'm glad that it isn't Kaitlin who's the one to replace Marissa, because she couldn't d that. Maybe later in season4 (or5) Season 4 is the best season i've ever seen (tbh in competing with One tree Hill) and I just can't wait to see it. Every week, it's the OC that I wanna see.
  • fantastic

    9.5
    what can i say, it rocks. This show ia absolutely fabulous and i can\'t stop watching it. it is addictive. my friend keep teasing me for liking such a superficial show. but ita my guilty plaesure, every one has one, and it just so happens that mine it watching this show. i recomend all mature audience to watch the oc because even tho it it malerialistic and hipocratic, there are feelings and a stroy behind all of the nonesense. so go ahead, go to blockbuster and rent 2003\'s hottest series, i assure you you will not regret the 27 hours of the OC in the first season. toddles!
  • I need held with question. They are all below in my review. Thanks you soo much for you help. I really appreciate it.

    9.7
    I missed about a season and a half, middle of second, and all of third, becasue I felt liek this show was getting way too dramatic. But I ended up watching it last week, and it is really good! Even this week. But I need a quick summary of everything that has happened. Like who was Taylor married to? Is Taylor Kristen\'s sister? And doe\'s Ryan know about his baby with Theresa yet, or anyone for that matter? please lemme kno, and any other important stuff. Thanks. !:D> And who is that one guy with the weird name?
  • Oliver, baby.

    10
    Hmmmmmmmm. So who agrees that Oliver should come back to The OC? I mean... I don\'t remember enjoying the show as much as I did when Oliver was present. Here\'s an idea: Because the oc is obviously going to end after this season due to poor ratings... they should Oliver to kill everyone then kill himself. that way there will be no chance of a crappy spin off with marissa\'s sister or anything. Dont get me wrong... i love the oc... but ive come to peace with myslef that it cant go on forever and that it has to end sometime. What better way to end the show then to bring back on of the hottest, beloved chracters of all time? and screw mischa for leaving the show! she\'s not that great of an actress! she will never be bigger than the oc!!!!
  • This episode was definetaly one of the oc's best episodes, it delivered one of the many "happy" fixes that had to be brought back to the show.

    10
    Good Episode, Good Show, i hope they dont kill it off because for those of you who think its going downhill, this show will have a second wind and that is exactly what it is having. I like the alternate universe idea, brought something original to the show, it was an amusing episode and was funny, i cant think of anything else to write, like the writers of 24 :P haha so ill leave you with this.In the wise words of Van Damme No Retreat No Surrender.

    Re-Elect Governor Schwarzenegger lol. 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 yay finished haha
  • Right, the OC... where to begin... its amazing!!! Season 1 was classic, I really enjoyed Season 2 when others didn't and Season 3 was pretty good too!

    9.7
    To some people, the seasons have been going rapidly downhill but I still love it... the cliffhangers at the end of the seasons have me in tears no matter what happens... seriously, I still cry at the season three finale. Season 4 starts soon here in the UK but thanks to Youtube, I've seen a few and its a very different season from what I've seen so far...

    If you like a show that has really quite likeable characters (maybe not oliver so much!) and a storyline that weaves with interesting revelations and so on, watch the OC!
  • A pretty good show

    9.3
    The story centres around Ryan Atwood, a boy who is taken in by public defender Sandy Cohen, to his lavish home in the Orange County. This sets off a chain reaction, that affects the Cohen family, the Cooper-Nichol family, and the rest of Orange County. The O.C. has pretty people, great music, dramatic storylines, beautiful locations... what more do you want? I reckon Seth is the best character, with his sharp wit and sarcasm, rolled into one geeky but cute teenage guy. Then Summer with her b****-turned-sweetie personality, and her \"rage black-outs\" lol! Marissa and Ryan are so sweet together, which is clearly demonstarted in their first date by the pool!!!! Marissa with her not-so-sweet \"hobbies\" and Ryan, who is the guy from the \"wrong side of the tracks\" with a heart of gold. The adults, Sandy and Kirsten Cohen, Jimmy and Julie Cooper, and Caleb Nichol are alright, though sometimes they are kinda screw-ups as parents

    The OC has really made an impact with it\'s 4th season.

    The characters have matured into thoughtful adults leaving childish problem behind and dealing with the past. This 4th season starts with how everyone is dealing, or not dealing with the loss of Marissa Cooper.

    At first it looked like the OC hadn\'t changed at all. Ryan still contradicting himself at every turn. but then suddenly the OC got it\'s humor back and Taylor Townsend has really been a breath of fresh air.

    Summer\'s college life was a bit silly and ot in a funny way but now she is back in Orange County and poor Seth is putting off college for a semester to spend time with her.

    This is definately the best Season so far. What a shame there will be only 16 episodes.
  • Great Show!, started off great, but season 2 and 3 left something to be desired. But now with Season 4, WOW!!! The show is going back to it\'s roots, let\'s hope FOX doesn\'t cancel it. Ratings rule, I know but the show is great when it wants to be.

    10
    I heard about the show after it\'s first season had aired. Little bro told me about it, so yeah caught a few episodes, Mischa Barton definitely got my attention (lol). Bought the 2nd season on DVD when it first came out with extra cash I made, lets just say after watching it I know why people loved this show, incredible characters, original ideas and storylines. It got me interested to see where these characters came from.

    Bought the 1st season and I was amazed, the ideas were way more thoughtful and the storylines had guesses around every corner. Compared to the 2nd season it was kind of tame and had recycled ideas. I watched most of last season, the stories were getting better but still nothing compared to the 1st season. I dont know if it was the producers idea or Mischa wanting to leave, neither do I care but as much I loved the Ryan/Marissa thing (ala Rachel/Ross from Friends). She had to leave, her character had become boring, predictable even tacky at times. I was on a job when the season finale aired so I had to catch it yesterday when I bought season 3 and it made total sense to have her leave. By the way, \"The Graduates\" was one of the saddest episodes ever, right below \"The ties that bind\" from Season 1.

    Thank god for CTV, I had a chance to catch all 7 episodes on the internet. And let\'s just say I was blown away. I think Schwartz and his writers have gone back to the drawing board to see what the show was, I mean how could they not????? show was doing horrible in ratings compared to before. Anyways, the show has that \"kick\" back, the jokes, the storylines (granted thus far the characters dealt with Marissa\'s death) but definitely starting to resemble the OC from the 1st season that people had grown to love.

    When Josh said that the show would focus on Ryan more, I sort of shaked my head because you lose a core character on the show and most of the time it\'s tough. But I know why now, I have really grown to love Ben Mackenzie\'s acting, WOW. The last show \"Christmukk-huh?\", let\'s just say I was never more moved or saddened. The show was a homage to Marissa Cooper and it\'s dumb that Mischa or whoever didn\'t let her be part of the alternate universe because it would have made it even more incredible. The episode closed all doors for once and for all for Ryan and for the characters to all move on.

    The show has had it\'s ups and definitely it\'s downs, especially the second half of season 2 (UGH!). If the writing keeps up and the ratings go up then I see no reason why this show should be cancelled. I chose the classification as \"Underappreciated\" because it\'s due to this season\'s episodes. Season 2 and some of Season 3 have deterred fans from coming back but if people gave the show another chance, I pray Josh keeps up the excellent writing, I promise the OC is worth every penny.

    This show is so cool! I began watching this show 2 years ago! I watched of course all the episodes!
    My fave character is Seth, he's so funny, I love the way he talks, his jokes, his comments, his clothes! He's awesome! My other fave character is Sandy, he's smart, funny too just like his son!
    The 1st season is wonderful! the 2nd one too! But in the 3rd marissa began to annoy me! She became really boring! Even if her death was very sad, I'm glad she's gone!!
    This season is sooooo much better than the last one! It's not fair that they're gonna cancel it!!
    Whatever happens, this show will remain as one of my TOP favourite shows.
  • Cool storyline, good characters, hot girls. Is's the best TV show.

    Cool storyline, good characters, hot girls. Is's te best TV show. Just simply great.
    My favourite caracters are Seth and Summer. And the creator (Josh Schwartz) just so brilliant. As soon as you watched the pilot episode, you knew this show was going to hit it off. It has comedy, romance, and deals with many real life problems that teens have to deal with, like drugs and divorce. The cast is made up of wonderful long-time actors and fresh faces who will be more than one hit wonders, I'm sure. Major thanks to FOX for inventing this addictive drama!
