  • Brilliant!!!

    This TV show is excellent. Although teens may not be as rich as these kids, they will find that they can relate the some of the things on the show. Also, you will not want to miss an episode and find out what happens will enjoy Ryan Atwood (Ben Mackenzie) and Seth Cohen (Adam Brody). Guys will enjoy Marrisa Cooper (Mischa Barton) and Summer Roberts (Rachel Bilson). Teens, boys and girls, will love this. As well as adults, men and women, will enjoy it too! I love it! The drama will make everyone forget about their problems. You will want to buy the seasons on DVD so you can watch THE OC over and over again.
  • Amazing Show

    Never thought a "Teen Drama" would be my second favorite show of all time (right behind beast wars transformers) I like to consider it more of a "Dramedy" though because the show has a lot of humor also.

    Very few shows have as good of character development as this one, and the cast works together flawlessy.

    Season 3 was the only season where the show went downhill for a little bit but then made an amazing return in season 4.

    Seth and Taylor are my favorite characters.
  • is missed.

    I MISS IT:(( its one of my favorites i loved the story and the characters!!
  • OTH/OC

    I agree with the guy with the breaking bad picture, when he said there is one show better I thought he must mean OTH. The OC is epic, One Tree Hill is the best ever.
  • One of the best teen dramas of all time but it will always come second on my list.

    The O.C. was one of the first shows i ever watched religiously.I discovered it one summer and i immediately fell in love with it.With that said,the O.C. is my second favorite teen show after One Tree Hill.I love both shows but i think One Tree Hill is better,even though the O.C. gets all the praise.They both started the same year but OTH evolved so much more.
    Anyway,let's talk about the show now.The show is about a troubled teen from Chino named Ryan who after being kicked out of his house ends up in the home of a rich family in Orange County.There he forms friendships,he finds love,he faces his own fears and he tries to overcome his troubled past.
    Most of the characters are excellent and well-written and most of the storylines are enjoyable.On the other hand,the acting is average.Benjamin Mckenzie is sort of wooden, Mischa Barton is not exactly the best actress and Willa Holland is insufferable.However,a few members of the cast,like Kelly Rowan,Adam Brody and Peter Gallagher are truly magnificent.
    The first season is definitely the best season of the show and the beginning of this beautiful journey.The pilot and the tear-jerking season finale are two of my favorite episodes.
    The second season is not as good as the first one but definitely one of the best.Kirsten's alcoholism,Caleb's death and the return of Trey are extraordinary storylines.
    The third season is kind of a let down considering the strength of the first two seasons.Johnny's death and Volchok were two aspects i hated about this season.
    The fourth season is the worst season,IMO.I thought it was kind of weird.Storylines i hated include: Summer wanting to save the world,Che and his spirit animals,Taylor getting married to that obnoxious french guy who wrote a book about her(??) and Ryan's dad ending up with Julie...
    As a whole,the O.C. was and always will be a great show that influenced a lot of teens around the world,including me.Long live O.C.
  • The best teen show ever!

    I first watched the first episode and thought it was amazing. I then watched the second one, and the third one, the fourth one... and by the end of the first season, I was in tears when Ryan was leaving Newport to go back to Chino. I got hooked to this show really bad. Seth was sailing away, Marissa was heartbroken, Kirsten was in tears, Sandy was heartbroken, Summer was heartbroken and most of all, Ryan too was heartbroken. I even loved the second season more, with Zack in the mix, Lindsay - the illegitimate love child of Caleb Nichol, Carter who had a crush on Kirsten, Julie's porn Identity revelation, Rebbecca Bloom - Sandy's old flame popping into town, Alex the sexy lesbian Bait shop manager who had a thing with both Seth Cohen and Marissa Cooper and Trey Atwood, the mislead Atwood that comes to live in Newport with the Cohens and lands in a lot of trouble. It was just amazing watching the second season! The whole Johnny Harper drama in the third season, Taylor Townsend and Dean Hess secret romance, Sadie the cousin who comes after Johnny's death, Volchok the bad boy afraid of Ryan Atwood, Dr. Henry Griffin and Matt Ramsey turning Sandy Cohen to 'Caleb Nichol', Kirsten's relapse to alcohol, Kaitlin growing boobs, Dr. Roberts and Julie Cooper having a thing and getting married, Summer and Marissa having a cold war, and finally Marissa dying in a car crash... Come on that was entertaining! And for the fourth season, I thought that it would be boring without Marissa but it turned out that Taylor Townsend was a great source of comedy. Her french husband Henri Michel was amazing. I couldn't get enough of this show. So sad it came to and end due to cancellation, but I loved it so much. Long line The O.C.!
  • Set in orange county, california The O.C. is a story revolving around the Cohens, Nichols and coopers with the entry of Ryan Atwood, the stranger who changed their lives forever..... a show you will savour no matter what!

    Set in orange county, california The O.C. is a story revolving around the Cohens, Nichols and coopers with the entry of Ryan Atwood, the stranger who changed their lives forever.The story begins with Sandy Cohen, a lawyer bringing ryan to their home when his mother threw him out, because once 'he was that kid' and he wanted to give him a chance. As the story unleashes we enter the ever changing world of orange county with every face hidden beneath thousands of masks waiting to be ripped off. From the outside they can all be described in a few characteristics and yet you know they can't be... for they're as complex as they can be. From ryan atwood, the brooding young man to julie cooper-nichol, the manupelative, calculating gold digger.. they all have skeletons hidden from their past... from porn tapes to illegitamate children... from stealing cars to taking drungs.. they're all involved in something that'll leave you dumbfounded. For they're all leading secret lives that we know can't be secret for long. With awesome sound tracks, captivating music score, breathtaking performances this is one show you will savour.california.... here we come!

  • OC is the best show ever!!!

    I think that this show is the best!!! I just started watching it, and now I can\'t stop, not that I would like to stop but anyway! i mean, it have so much drama in it and that\'s just great! at first when i heard that someone in my class was crazy about the show, i was just like, oh, yeah right!!but then i watched one episode and i fell for it to!!!! now i have to watch it all the time!!!! they have such great actors/actress!!! this is one of the best shows i\'ve ever seen!!!! i\'m like a tv-show junkie!!! and i watch many tv-shows and this is one of the best!! I LOVE OC!!!!
  • awesome

    I love this show, and i can\'t wait when I will watch a new season. After death Marissa I don\'t image, how the show looks. I hope that will great. I think that, when I watch a promo 4 season. Maby 4 season will be beter than third. It\'s mean more funny and I hope that Seth and Summer still will be together, becouse it\'s my favorite coup. In promo I saw then Kristen and Sandy will be happy again, and I glad for this. I worry about Julie and Ryan, both Loved Marissa, and its hard to live without her. I\'m glad that Taylor and Katlin will be regular. I think that is a new age of The OC without Marissa, I missed for her. In my opinion fourth season will be awesome and more intresting.

  • great

    the oc it one ov the greatest programs going no other tv show could beet it so i wished it came back on with the same characters and bring marrisa back because i think it was a bad mistake cuttin her off

    i think seth goin a lot better with anna than he does with summer she is such a selfish idiot

    i also think that ryan goes well with marrisa if she wasent so bad to him poor thing i so hope that the oc comes back on even if they don't live in the big house or manshon .
  • The OC is a Television Show about a boy, named Ryan, that is "saved" from the criminal world, by the Cohens, a rich family, which lives on Newport Beach!

    I love The OC!
    In my opinion is the best show ever!
    There are great actors on it, and a good history!
    I think people from every age can watch and like, because it addresses many different issues! I really don't understand why they canceled.Most of the people said it was because of the death of one of the main character,Marissa, but i don't agree, and I think the show mantained the same quality even after her death!
    About the performances...most of the cast is really good,but ofcourse there are some actors that need some "help".
    Ending, it is a really good TV show! I recommend, watch!
  • Best show EVER!!!

    I can even smell California when I watch this show. Never ever watched anything like this before. It's so pure and simple at the same time deep.

    Every moment of this show is special. The characters, the drama, the acting... everything is so incredibly good. The cast rocks! I like marissa, ryan, anna, seth, kristin, summer, sandy, jimmy and almost everyone in the show. The show is just too perfect. It has comedy, drama, emotion, happiness, sexy moments everything.

    I love OC. Can't believe it's off-air. How can they stop a show like this!? Huh?

    I'll miss and love the OC 'til the end! :D
  • The OC covered many hardships in teens lives.It showed how family and friends come together through hardtimes.You need to watch, all the seasons and then you will really get a feel of how good this show really is.

    Honestly, I was an advid watcher when the OC first came out and throughout all the seasons. Even after Marissa died. Although I was absolutly appauled by the fact that she was killed off, I still loved the show. In the past 3 years I got Tivo and decided to tape the shows. I started watching them again and fell in love all over again. I am completely obsessed again and wish they would come back. I dont understand why they went off in the first place. Gossip Girl supposedly took the place of OC. To tell the truth Gossip Girl isnt cutting it for me. I dont look forward to watching that as much as The OC. The characters in Gossip Girl are unreal. Dont get me wrong i do like the show but The OC was way better, why is gossip girls stil on the air and not the OC?
  • It's the BEST teen Comedy Drama I've ever watched. I love it!

    I never watched the first season on tv, I ignored it. I never knew what I was missing until I watched it on DVD and I'm now so addicted to The O.C.! I love Adam Brody, Ben McKenzie, Rachel Bilson. Kelly Rowan, Peter Gallagher, Mischa Barton, Alan Dale, Tate Donovan and the rest of The O.C. cast. I've at least seen them in other tv shows like Gilmore Girls, Judging Amy, 24, Neighbors, Friends and I still cannot get enough of them, especially Adam Brody whom I love just the way he talks with his tongue! I Love The O.C.
  • The most amazing show on television!!!

    I watched the whole series like three times, and yet I still enjoy watching bits and parts of it wherever I can.
    Ben McKenzie is absolutely FANTASTIC! He can play the brooding bad boy all day and he would be real 100%. When I heard that Chad Michael Murray was the choice to to play Ryan and he turned it down to play Lucas Scott on One Tree Hill I thought, wow, it's too bad , because he was a bigger name than Ben. And then I started watching One Tree Hill and I realized that there's no one better to play Ryan than Ben.

    His performance just blows me away every time I see him on screen. He is not trying to look sad or brooding he just naturally does it.

    Ryan is the show! Ben is the show!

    And the music! I took me in the land of indie rock and and I love it ever since!

    Though there were mistakes made with the show...I have to say, it will take a while for another show like this to come around!

    I'm lucky that I was a part of this phenomenon which was and will always be...The O.C
  • BringitBack

    This is a great story about a troubled teen from a bad area in California known as Chino brought to The O.C. when his mom throws him out and disappears. His mom comes back but he ends up staying with this family the Cohen's anyway. The girl next door known as Marissa played by Mischa Barton is Ryan's on and off girl friend until she dies in the end of season 3. The Cohen's son Seth is known for being a geek before Ryan showed up but now has a girlfriend named Summer that he has obsessed over his whole life. Bottom line is that its a great show that never should have left :(
  • The O.C. Rocks!!!

    The O.C. is one of my favorite shows. I own season one through 4. I was very disapointed to see it end so soon. I loved when misha Barton was on the cast. I was just so used to her with Brian and the whole love-tragic story. I didn't her character sometimes on the show for all she put ryan through but i did love the four of them together. Then she was gone and i missed the drama lol. But they did make a great sequel to the ending of season four. It would have been better if Marissa Cooper was still on the show. I think it would have went on for more seasons then. I'll always love the O.C. show it has an amazing cast and it will always be remembered. #1 O.C. Fan, Winny look alike
  • one of...

    As I mentioned in classification this TV show is one of my personal favorites. Especially it's because of McG, because I can watch and I enjoy watching all the movies and all the TV shows that have been produced by him. His perfect at his place. In this TV show also. It wasn't the typical teenage drama when you sit in your cozy watching the episode and predicting what will happen next. This was something different, so I love it really much. Time to time I had a headache, because I wanted to find out what will come next. I think that our generation need more TV shows like the O.C. because there were a lot of good things to learn, to "ask for advice and to get it" and enjoy the dream living in Orange County or other region of California. This is the reason why we were watching the Beverly Hills 90210, the O.C. and now the 90210, to enjoy the life, the problems of rich and quite famous.
  • Amazing, just amazing. I never really liked any teen soaps, but man this one is awesome.

    Amazing, just amazing. I used to rag on my best friend, whom like myself is a guy, for watching this show. He used to always tell me I didnt know what I was talking about, and if I gave it a chance, I'd be hooked. So one night in 2004 I decided to tune in, and I caught the episode, "The Chrimakuh That Almost Wasn't" I thouroughly enjoyed this episode and immediatley called my best friend to ask him if he could lend me his first season on DVD! After watching the very first episopde, I COULDN"T STOP WATCHING!!! I maintained and watched every single episode on from "The Chrismakuh That Almo9st Wasn't" Live on TV Until the very last episode in 2007, "The End is Not Near, It's Here," Which nearly brang tears to my eyes. Season 1,2 and 4 are absolutley incredible, however there is a big hiccup in season 3, not very wathable up unitl the last four or five episodes of the season. This along with 24 are probably my all time 2 top favorite shows!!!!!
  • I Loved and always will love the oc

    wooow wear to start! i remember when i was in grade 9 and this show was in its second season, eveyone was talking about it ! i was a survivour fan but for some reason all the talk about the oc got me to watch a epsiode. so one thursday night i went down to my room and fliicked on fox and from the opening them song i fell in love. )the first epsiode i saw was the one called 'riskey business'_ it was very good. i watched the rest of the second season and then bought th efirst season in the summer and fell mor ein love with this show. it seemd the oc was ontop of the world and everyone was watching it all my friends and familyy! the night after the third season permier (i loved it by the way) people at school wernt sayin the same responses that they had given abou the first two seasons ! i knew something was wrong from this point when i liked th show and all the people who got me hooked to it in the first place dident like the premier! soooo the season went on and the ratings went down and down eventually to the point when they hit the mega panic button and killed of micha berton ! this was the final axe in the OC as rattings shot the show to cancalation levels! the fourth season was a attempt to build the show back up to a level wear fox could continiue to air it , but after a weak start to the season it was al down hill for the oc! i remember for the first time missing weeks of the OC (altho i did misss some epsiodes in the third season i still wanted to no aht happend) now it was like the oc was missing something, like it lost something! iafter the finale i cried i was on my toes for the last scene and always look back to the oc and remember how good it was.

    The oc was my life , i go tmy music, clothing style, personal style, and eveyrhting else form this show. i wante dot be like the oc ! and still do!

    I am excited for 90210 as it reminds me of teh oc in a way, and hope this show picks up like the oc did!

    i will alwyas love the oc and wenever i see a rerun or have th chance to watch a rerun i am happy, it brings back good memories about everything!

    long live the oc , one of my fav shows of all time
  • It is still one of my favorites!

    The O.C. is one of my favorite series, they took it off the air way too soon. Since I am a big fan of Mischa and well she shouldn't have ever left the show. The intertwined drama felt like a nighttime soap opera to me. Everyone was very attractive and alluring. The O.C. also seemed like drama within surreal life and circumstances. They should bring back a similar show or recontinue, if that makes any sense. I love Brian McKenzie and this show definitely gave him his start! Rachel Bilson is very cute and was able to continue carrying the show.
  • i dont watch shows like the hills/heroes n' stuff, but the oc is awesome! btw, it is on sumtimes, but not as often as it should be. it should get nominated for stuff too, even though it is kinda old, its still awesome!

    awesome! i dont watch all these shows like the hills and heroes and stuff, but the oc is awesome! it has real life situations and is so realistic, but still dramatic. i dont know why i even started watching it cause i always thought it would be bad, but when i decided to watch it for the first time, it was awesome, and i watch it whenever posible ever since! funnily enough though, i still havent seen the first episode or even the first or second season cause i want to watch all the episodes in order. it should be on more often though, and get nominated for stuff, even though it is kinda old, its still awesome!
  • The OC is a show I never thought I was gonna watch, but now I have, and I love it:)

    What I love about the OC, is that all the characters are interesting, and has great storylines.. I'm usually not a fan of "parents" on a show, but Kirsten, Julie, Sandy ++ is only fun to watch:)
    I think Seth is the sweetest guy ever, and him beeing friends with Ryan is just so cool:P they're not alike at ALL!! .. but they get along well, and that's good:) Sandy must be one of the best dads ever, he's so nice to everyone, and wants to help out anytime!!

    these rich kids beeing involved with betray, stealing, unfaithfulness, LOVE, fights.. makes this a good show.. and it's fun and exciting to watch!! the creator of this show is a genious..not only because of this show, but because of gossip girl and chuck!! some of my other favorites.. so no wonder I like this show so much:)
    my fav characters in order must be: Merissa, Sandy, Seth, Ryan, Summer, Kirsten, Julie, Jimmy, Luce...

    (ps: I've only seen the first season when I'm writing this)
  • This show is basically a drama and it's has really influenced me in many ways!!!

    this show was my favorite.... because of The OC i became addicted to Series all in all... from the OC on i couldn't sleep without watching a series.... full of drama and interesting every episode... you just can't switch the TV off and you can't stop watching it coz u always gotta know what will happen next.... They always find a way to catch your attention again... whenever a problem ends 2 or 3 others replace it and they are always more intereting and harder to solve than the others... i also find it gr8 that unlike other teen series there are also grown ups involved just like in real life...
  • The O.C:the most addictive series i've ever watched! A must see show!

    What can i say about the oc, without spoiling anything? Orange Country superficially seems like another spoiled-rich-teen-drama, but when you start watching it you'll realize that it's missjudge. This show has some great characters that you start loving since the pilot:
    -Who on earth wouldn't want Sandy and Kristen as parents?
    -Who hasn't dream of finding their own Summer?
    -Who wouldn't want to have Julie Cooper as a neighbour?(lol)

    Basically the story is about struggle, discrimination, apparences and lonelyness; pretty much what everyone have been trough high school. It also has it romantic and funny part wich make this show even richer!

    So personally to everyone who is looking for a show to watch, i totally recommend the oc, you won't regret it and you'll realize that this show is much more great than it seems!
  • I miss this show best show ever.

    I never watched season 1 of the show when it aired but i did watch repeats and I fell in love with this show. Adam Brody is just so funny as Cohen. Rachel Bilson and Mischa Barton are both great actresses and Ben McKenzie was a great newcomer. The adult cast was perfect and the show was flawless. In season 2 it got more drama filled and it intorduced a fave of mine Alix played by Olivia Wilde. Season 3 was great too and Autumn Resser and Willa Holland where perfect in their roles although i was sad to see Marissa go but Season 4 was great the two new regulars fitted in perfectly. The show is my all time fave and i love everything about it.

  • My personal favorite.

    The O.C. is probably one of the best shows to ever air on television. Premiering in 2003 this wasn't just a teenage drama. Adults and their children can both relate to this. It's about human struggles and the way in which we are all connected. It's about people trying to do what is right, and trying to make things work with the people around them. It's about finding true love and having a good time. It was the perfect combination of hardcore drama and it dealt with sensitive issues, as well as providing us with some fresh, witty banter every week. Yes, the characters were flawed, each and every one of them. But it made them seem more real. After a couple of episodes they begin to feel like close friends. The acting was great. Of course nothing is perfect, but it only helped to add to the show's reality factor. The setting may not be everyday America, but the problems and the issues are real, from drugs and alcohol to teenage pregnancy the OC tackled it all and it was definitely triumphant.
