Product Description

Product Description

Season 1
When Ryan a tough, guarded, fiercely intelligent teenager from the wrong side of town, plunges headlong into the wealthy, privileged community of The Orange County, he soon discovers that the ruling of families of the O.C. are every bit as territorial as the hoods that he use to run with.

Season 2
There's trouble (and plenty of fun) in paradise in this 24-episode, seven disc Season 2 collection of the smash-hit series set in Orange County's posh Newport Beach. Hook up with what's coming down as the Core Four romances of Ryan-and-Marissa and Seth-and-Summer may (or may not) go from very over to very on. Sandy and Kirsten face choices that could trainwrecktheir 20-year marriage, felon (and Ryan's brother) Trey gives Newport living a try, Julie's lurid past comes back to haunt her, and other new hunks and hotties become part of the coastal scene. Live. Laugh. Lie. Cheat. Grow. Share. Connive. Love. In California's beach paradise, they do everything under the sun.

Season 3
Senior year. Prom. Graduation. College visits. Old friends. New problems. And plenty of Korean popstars. Ryan's savior complex becomes a recipe for disaster. Seth and Summer's relationship hits the rocks thanks to Seth's compulsion to edit the truth. As Kirsten attempts to put her life back together, Sandy assumes leadership of the Newport Group and finds himself the heir-apparent to Caleb Nichol's legacy of scandal. Marissa spirals out of control after little sis Kaitlin--a Julie Cooper in the making--returns home to stir the pot. And speaking of Julie Cooper, she's cast out of her Palace--into the slums of the O.C. No sign of senioritis here. All 25 episodes lead to the most schocking season finale yet. With humor, heart, great music and all the teen angst you could hope for (and more), see why "The O.C. has become the John Hughes movie of the 2000s" (popmatters.com).

Season 4
High school is over. Time to move on. But events conspire to reunite Ryan, Seth and Summer in posh, seaside Newport. And there may even be a new Core Four. Because after Taylor Townsend says a quick if not passionate au revoir to her education in France, she just might pursue Ryan until he catches her.

Time, too, for the series to move on with these 16 final episodes. Seth marries Summer? (Maybe.) Ryan goes through life like it's a steel-cage brawl? (Sometimes.) Kaitlin tries to hook up her mom Julie with a billionaire? (Well, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.) But things happen, sometimes quite unexpectedly. Time to hit the beach for all the surprising events of a cool, compelling and revealing conclusion of The O.C.

From Amazon.co.uk

Since its debut in 2003, US teen drama The OC captivated audiences with its fresh dialogue, clever wit, steamy storylines and the mesmerising power of Peter Gallagher's eyebrows! During its four-year run it became a trendsetting force in terms of popular fashion and music tastes among teenagers worldwide, and it will remain a series regarded with great affection by many of its audience. Following the trials and tribulations of a misfit collection of rich and glamourous residents of Newport Beach, California, The OC was at times witty, moving and downright bizarre, often in the same episode. Storylines were at times laughable, but somehow it still managed to carry it off, due perhaps to the acting ability of its ensemble cast. And when the show eventually came to an end, with just 16 episodes made in the final season, the finale encapsulated what many audiences already knew - that despite the show’s popularity and cultural impact, it never took itself too seriously.
For the first time, all four seasons are brought together in one box set, comprising 28 discs with every episode and some bonus extras such as unseen OC footage and The Atomic County comic. --Sally Giles --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
The OC can be summed up in one simple word: escapism. It is a story of sunshine, affluence and beauty of which all but the most cynical secretly crave at some point in their life. But The OC is also a story of two halves. One half resulting in numerous awards, an addicted fan base and critical acclaim; the other resulting in the show being prematurely axed due to low ratings.

The first season sees Ryan Atwood's (Ben McKenzie) life being transformed from a Chino juvenile delinquent into a member of the lavish Cohen household in Newport Beach after public defendant Sandy (Peter Gallagher) takes pity on his case. Ryan gains new friends, including the fast-talking son of Sandy, Seth (Adam Brody), new enemies, and comes to make an impact of almost every person he comes into contact with. His story is ultimately the quick-fix American dream. The episodes are often light hearted, funny and endearing as the viewer comes to realise that like everyone else, the rich have their ups and downs.

It is deliciously far fetched, beyond the remit of reality, yet delivers a plausibility to the characters that makes you want to keep watching further. We are led to loath Julie Cooper (Melinda Clarke), mother of sociopath Marissa (Mischa Barton); laugh at the callous insensitivity of Caleb Nicol (Alan Dale) and lust after the figure of Summer Roberts (Rachel Bilson).

But where the first season succeeded, it's successors never quite managed to. Season two is highly watchable, yet more improbable that the first. It waxes and wanes between drama and soap opera, constantly meddling with the lives of its protagonists - perhaps not always when it should. Most characters are rarely far from catastrophe, and the adults enjoy a more promiscuous and precarious life that their offspring.

Season 1 is in 4:3 format - the only downside to a great value box set. It seems strange, given that seasons 2, 3, and 4 are not only in widescreen, but are available elsewhere (on iTunes) in HD. I already had season 1 in the older "gatefold" packaging. The season 1 in this set is absolutely identical in terms of the discs, albeit they are packaged in a slimmer plastic box. The "16:9" mark on the bottom of the outer box is therefore a bit misleading. That said, this set is a bargain and the show puts newer "teen dramas" in the shade.

We had already seen all of the O.C on tv and loved it so much we wanted to watch it again & again! Being able to get the box set at such a fab price was great. If you've ever watched any of the O.C and liked it then this box set is a must. A great series about the trials & tribulations of being a teenager and everything that goes with it!!

Come on, people, where is your sense of fun? Critics around the world flock to shows like The Wire and The Sopranos, citing them as the only 'worthy' programmes on TV. Yes, they are exceedingly well made, but TV shows excel in different ways. The OC is funny, touching drama. It's easy to watch, but wickedly smart at the same time.

These four seasons ran between 2003-2007, and if you go back to the early episodes, you see that it's becoming a product of its time. For anyone who was at the apex of their youth during those years, it was essential viewing, even though storylines tended to repeat themselves and certain guest characters dragged the life out of it.

I get a little bit fazed by people who criticise shows like The OC, though. It's not really about grand, overarching storylines and a commentary on the changing state of capitalism - it's a witty show that centres on character, above plot. Accept this, and The OC is a great deal of fun for every one of these 92 episodes.

This boxset does the series an unusual amount of justice; really, I've never seen anything like it. Designed as a sort of scrapbook, with tons of stills and episode pics blazed across shiny, high-quality paper, the book is bound by a holographic hardcover, and slides into an epic plastic case. The discs are a part of the book, which is also very cool. It's the best-looking TV boxset ever, by quite some way.

Throw in an introduction by creator Josh Schwartz, as well as a nostalgic conversation between him and Executive Producer Stephanie Savage, and the passionate conception of this boxset is undeniable. WB have chucked in all of the extras from the US releases, too (aside from having season 1 in Widescreen. Balls), so it really does feel like the complete OC experience.

Coming from the generation where you were either OC or One Tree Hill, The OC is always going to be one of those television shows I will come back to, and know that its there when I need it. While the fourth season is debatable in terms of quality, the first season is one of those seasons of TV that can be watched and enjoyed over and over because it was telling a story you were very quickly invested in after the pilot - if you haven't seen the show before I highly recommend it, but if you have this is a great box set to have (although it should be noted that as this was the early 2000s, there aren't a vast amount of special features)

The OC is a show that's far greater than the sum of it's parts. There were other shows, e.g. One Tree Hill which at first glance, seem to be in a similar vein,.... but they're not. The OC stands alone primarily because of it's main ingredients, i.e. it's heart, and above all, it's charm. Right from the beginning it will grab you. It'll have won you over completely by episode 5. By the end of the first season you'll be an addict,...watching out for all those little OC trademarks.....Sandy's down-to-earth sense of humour, Ryan's timely right hook, Seth's ironic T-shirts and pop culture references, Summer's quirky honesty, Marissa's huge feet, questionable dress sense and an inclination to drink vodka at lifeguard stations in the middle of the night. Plus let's not forget the OC's OUTSTANDING, second to none soundtrack and,.... bagels my friend.....oh yes, let's not forget all those bagels. Buy all 4 seasons...sit back...and enjoy. It will make you a better person.

(Personal favourite episode - the Rainy Day Women. Perfection right from the opening track - Blind Melon's No Rain.)
