A nice surprise
I watched the pilot episode of "The O.C." when it first ran because I was
sick of watching reruns of "Friends" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (even
though I love those shows) and I wanted to watch something fresh and new.
expected to be sitting through an hour of a cheesy, sudsy soap opera with
really hot guy (Benjamin McKenzie) and in truth, I did. However, I
myself by actually LIKING "The O.C.". For all its sudsiness and corny
dialogue, it was really somewhat enjoyable. After having watched all 7
episodes of it so far, I think that its just getting better and better. I
mean, sure Mischa Barton's acting skills are drastically limited, and the
plot is nothing original, but I don't find it to be TOO much like "Beverly
Hills 90210". Besides, I liked "90210" up until a point. Also, the theme
song to "The O.C." is amazing, even better than the one for "Smallville".
am looking forward to the next few episodes of one of my newest favorite
