'The Gamble' sees Ryan's mother Dawn (Daphne Ashbrook) making a surprise visit to her son's new home. Newport's finest young ladies are preparing to enter society in 'The Debut'. 'The Outsider' sees Ryan taking a job at the Crab Shack diner. Marissa must choose between Ryan and Luke (Chris Carmack) in 'The Girlfriend'. In 'The Escape', Seth, Ryan, Marissa and Summer (Rachel Bilson) take an end-of-summer trip to Tijuana, Mexico. 'The Rescue' sees Ryan enrolling at his new school. School begins in 'The Heights', and Marissa finally chooses her man. 'The Perfect Couple' sees Ryan and Marissa planning their first date. In 'The Homecoming', it's Thanksgiving - and Ryan gets a call from his family back home. 'The Secret' sees Ryan and Luke making friends. In 'The Best Chrismukkah Ever', Seth is still stringing two girls along. It's New Year in 'The Countdown', and Seth finally makes his choice.

Synopsis

When Ryan Atwood, a tough, guarded, fiercely intelligent 16-year-old plunges headlong into the wealthy, privileged community of Newport Beach, he soon discovers that the ruling families of Orange County are every bit as territorial as the tough crowd with which he ran on the streets of Chino. For Sandy Cohen, the idealistic public defender who takes Ryan in; his wife Kirsten, the linchpin of O.C. society; their awkward adolescent son, Seth; and the beautiful troubled girl next door, Marissa Copper - Ryan's presence will forever change their lives.

Thinking of buying this boxed set for a friend, I was immediately struck by the two (identical) one-star reviews at the very top of the list, written by an incomprehensibly enraged 'viewer' who condemned the OC as shallow, badly acted trash before grandly predicting a second Wall Street Crash as a symptom of modern society- and all this from someone who, amongst other things, spelt 'lobotomy' with an 'a'.

I'm writing this, then, for two reasons; firstly to encourage prospective buyers not to be put off and to give it a go, but also because I seriously do enjoy the series.

The OC is described on the official review as 'edgy', a term which sums it up well; it may be set in the materialistic, artificially beautiful world of Orange County, but a more than desultory flick across channels makes it clear that this is completely self-aware. The OC is a show about outsiders. Revolving around Ryan, a resented lower-class arrival into the community,and Seth, a geek despised for not fitting in, the mere fact that the series was written by Josh Schwartz,(who in his teen years suffered bullying in Orange County) should make it clear that while it may take us into the homes and stories of beatified, trivial rich kids, it is far from celebrating them. It will not be too much of a spoiler, hopefully, to say that Marissa, who with her water-polo playing boyfriend fits initially fairly well into the 'rich kid' category, finds that when her desperate attempts to break away from the Orange County tight social circle lead to emotional disaster; society is unwilling to let go of her, a beautiful 'rich kid', as much as it is the customary outsiders.

I could say more but hope I've made some case for the OC.

Format: DVD
The story of a delinquent who finds himself living in wealthy Newport Beach, California, is fun to watch over and over. We can again meet Chino bad boy Ryan (Benjamin Mackenzie) and follow him as he is rescued from jail by his attorney, Sandy Cohen (Peter Gallagher) and becomes part of his family. Wife Kirsten (Kelly Rowan) isn't sure she wants the brooding boy near her son Seth (Adam Brody), who is the quintessential comic book geek. And then there are the girls: Moody Marissa (Mischa Barton), Seth's secret crush Summer (Rachel Bilson), and spunky Theresa from Chino. Marissa's troubled parents and Kirsten's parents have their share of drama, too, and who could forget Luke or Haylie. It's simply the best season of the show, with the most memorable one-liners. Who can forget Summer's first "Ewww!" or Luke's "welcome" speech to Ryan.

Teens like the show for the trendy music and fashions, while people over 20 consider it a guilty pleasure; it certainly is deliciously decadent, romantic, funny, shocking, and, of course, luxuriantly beautiful. The secret lives of the fabulously rich Newpsies contrast nicely with the outsider's two-fisted approach to life, until he realizes they're not so different after all. Season One has all the angst of high school junior year, as well as the social and financial machinations of the middle-agers. The action all revolves around Ryan, sensitively played by Mackenzie, and the loving Cohen family, with the wonderful Peter Gallagher anchoring it all as the kindly and wise dad. Creator Josh Schwartz has made fascinating characters and an addictive story line. Extras are few; there are no bloopers or commentary, but it's still a terrific DVD set that will satisfy your craving for all things O.C.

People everywhere have been talking about the OC, and I never really gave it a chance. But after receiving the box set as a Christmas present, and having watched the whole of the first season in a span of no less than 3 days, I can confirm that all the hype is necessary. I have never watched anything so gripping, dramatic and unpredictable as the OC. The plot is so engrossing and addictive, it's almost impossible to stop watching. There is comedy, as well as tragedy. You will be shocked by many of the intense revelations and it'll have you both laughing and crying. The balance between the two is what makes the OC particularly special.
The OC has it all. The overlapping storylines include relationship problems, covering themes like jealousy, infidelity and heartbreak, as well as the development of other relationships and friendships, with the odd punch-up or cat fight in between. The introduction of new characters keep the flow of story interesting and there is always something new going on. It never gets boring.
Entertaining, full of surprises, with an amazingly talented cast, 18 hours of television masterpiece. What more could you ask for?
Bring on Season 2!

WOW! Oh my god how brillant is the OC. I definately recommend to everyone that you buy this boxset it is worth every penny. As soon as you see the first episode of this fantastic show I can promise you will be hooked not only on the huge storylines but also on the fitness of ben and adam.
I am a massive OC fan and couldn't wait for the second season. But to feed my appetite of this great show while I had to wait for the second season to air I watched the first season over and over again.I can honestly say this show is one of the best shows around and you never get bored of watching the episodes again and again.
The storylines have a purpose and the fact that the show is based on the trials and tribulations of teenage life and love just helps you relate to the characters and love them even more.The show has a brilliant cast and every episode you are left wanting to know whats going to happen next.
Anyone without the OC boxset does not know what they are missing. You may look at the price and be left thinking is it worth it but with 7 discs and a massive 27 incredible episodes plus all those special features I would say this is definately money well spent and I am just waiting fo the awesome second season to be released.
