Oh Say, Did You See The OC?
It feels like ages since we've seen Seth, Ryan and the gang. It looks like ages too. Did you SEE the cast members? It seems like some of the youngins aged overnight. I mean, no one is a teenager, except for Mischa and everyone else, well...they seem to be in danger of entering Ian Ziering territory in a few short seasons if you know what I mean. I'm hoping the look I was seeing on Adam Brody's face was just exhaustion. Yeah, that must be it. Exhaustion.
But alas, there is FINALLY something on Thursday nights to fill the 8 o'clock void. I'm sorry to say it, but Joey just isn't doing it for me. Watching Joey after having Friends for so many years is like having a side salad when you used to have filet mignon.
Anyway, there was a lot of baggage that needed to be checked on last night's episode. In case you missed it, the looming questions were:
Due to last year's content, The OC has been unofficially categorized as a dramaedy, half drama/half comedy. Only last night it was more like 80/20, with drama holding strong. I guess with all the angst to deal with, there was little time left over for laughs. I'll forgive you OC...this time. Next week though, I won't be as forgiving. You've been handed the 90210-Dawson's torch to carry on to the next generation. No pressure or anything.
Remember this and make us proud.
