Tonight is the series finale of the O.C. I welcome this for many reasons, the largest of which is that I no longer have to be embarrassed that I watch The O.C. At the same time, I have grown fond of these little spoiled freaks and may, unfortunately, come to miss them. There have been some fantastic and crazy moments on this show. Most of these moments have come in this final season when they just took things TOO far. I was initially turned off by it but have come to realize the ridiculousness what just what the show needed. The season beginning with Ryan getting into cage fighting to deal with his pain was simply too precious. Who does cage fighting? That is simply brilliant. Summer going from a fashion focused ditz to an environmentally conscious fashion focused not ditz was just the kind of growth and development the character needed. Seth not going to college and becoming an even bigger comic book nerd and hanging out with old people all the time was the epitome of pathetic perfection. Summer’s crazy friend from Brown who thought Seth was his soul mate because of some vision quest. Taylor’s going to France and marrying some guy who wrote a book about their erotic adventures that became a best seller??? Can you get any better than that? I’ll miss this crazy show.
In even more pathetic TV news, the new season of Top Model starts next week and the girls look more of a mess than ever. I can’t stand the fact that I am going to watch this show. Will someone give me some willpower to resist horrible television? I think Heroes and Ugly Betty are my saving graces and I suppose the Law and Order shows don’t hurt my rep either. Will they please hurry up and bring back Project Runway so that I can be enthralled by good reality television.
On a positive note I have been able to resist American Idol since the first round of audition shows ended. I don’t know if that is something I am ready to give up just yet. Maybe next year. I almost watched it last night but decided that Spartacus would be a much better viewing experience. It was, until I fell asleep. I wonder what happened? Don’t tell me, I’ll finish watching it. I didn’t even get to see him go “I am Spartacus,” which I think is relatively important. Why did they have to have TMD in Roman times? These are the things that occupy my mind.
California, California, here we COOOMEAAA. Goodbye my O.C friends fare well on your new endeavors. I hope they aren’t as horrible as this show was. But remember, I mean horrible in a good way.
