  • this one is not exactly one of the best. Oscar and Felix go spend some days on a cabin, where they encounter a woman, and 3 little girls, one of whom has a crush on Felixmoreless

    although this has some laughs in it, like the lines posted above, this was not my favourite storyline. I mean the idea that some little girl, would take an interest on Felix, just because they share some common interests, that the other girls of her age don't, making them both outcasts in the group, it's not a very good reason for the little girl to feel jealous of Felix's attention to the woman they share the cabin with.

    some might say it's a sweet story, but I didn't feel it had the necessary appeal to it to make it interesting. perhaps if they had made it a 2 parter, which this episodes away from "home" usually are.. but the OC is probably the only sitcom I know that didn't do 2 parters.
