The O.C. is an American teen drama television series that originally aired on the Fox network in the United States from August 5, 2003, to February 22, 2007, running a total of four seasons. The series, created by Josh Schwartz, portrays the fictional lives of a group of teenagers and their families residing in the affluent seaside community of Newport Beach, in Orange County, California.
The series centers on Ryan Atwood, a troubled youth from a broken home who is adopted by the wealthy and philanthropic Sandy and Kirsten Cohen. Ryan and his surrogate brother Seth, a socially awkward yet quick-witted teenager, deal with life as outsiders in the high-class world of Newport Beach. Ryan and Seth spend much time navigating their relationships with girl-next-door Marissa Cooper, Seth’s childhood crush Summer Roberts, and the fast-talking loner Taylor Townsend. Story lines deal with the culture clash between the idealistic Cohen family and the shallow, materialistic, and closed-minded community in which they reside. The series includes elements of postmodernism, and functions as a mixture of melodrama and comedy.
The series premiered to high ratings and was one of the most popular new dramas of the 2003–2004 television season. It was widely referred to as a pop cultural phenomenon and received mostly positive reception from critics. However, ratings declined as the show went on. The low ratings led to its cancellation in early 2007, even after an online petition that gained over 700,000 signatures. The O.C. has been broadcast in more than fifty countries worldwide, and re-runs are now shown on Hulu, SOAPnet, Really, Channel 4 and MTV (Latin America). The entire series has been released on DVD, as well as on iTunes.
On August 5, 2003 I was in Saginaw, Michigan while living at my mother’s house at the age of 13. I was watching some TV at my room and then there a new show came on titled The O.C. on Fox Network. It became one of my favorite teen shows of all time. I know there’s a lot of stars was in the show are Ben McKenzie, Adam Brody, Mischa Barton, Melinda Clarke, Kelly Rowan, Peter Gallagher, Willa Holland, Chris Carmack, Autumn Reeser, Alan Dale, Tate Donovan and others. It made a huge household names for them to become famous. I do also know that celebs who guest starred on The O.C. including Janel Parrish, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Bonnie Sommerville, Chris Brown, Cam Gigandet, and others. Amazing cast.
That show moves and inspires me to have a better life in Saginaw, Michigan like doing some independent things and stuff like that. I was really upset when the show ended in February of 2007. Fox cancel it due to low ratings. The episodes like “The Dearly Beloved” where Marissa shoots Ryan’s step-brother Trey was classic.
Ten years later The O.C. is still one of my favorite shows of all time. In the immortal words of Luke Ward “Welcome to the O.C., bitch!”.
Here are some clips from the show that became of your and mine favorites.
Watch some clips on YouTube or other video websites. My credits goes to Wikipedia for this amazing blog post.

First let me just say that I adore when The Ewing’s are on the same side. They are more powerful than anything when they’re all fighting for the same cause; as Sue Ellen shared with her old pal Ken, “When the Ewings unite, nothing can stop us”. And though folks may try, in the end, I know it will be the Ewing’s that will prevail.
“Let Me In” began on a somber note with a montage of Christopher and Pamela dealing with the loss of their babies. While Christopher is taking apart their things, smashing the cradle in anger; Pamela is putting their room together, as it should have been. Those scenes just broke my heart, watching these two “should be” parents dealing with the loss of the babies they never got to meet… and color me wrong, but I wanted them to deal with it together. Married or not…

30 Day TV Challenge: Day 17 – Favorite miniseries
My favorite miniseries is Political Animals. The show was premiered on USA Network around July 15th through August 19, 2012. I watched it while I was living at my mother’s house before I move in to the apartments next to school. The series was brilliant and extraordinary. The title, plot, episodes, theme and acting was amazing. I love that show.
