Product description

Product Description

The complete third season of the popular US drama series. The O.C., also known as Orange County, California, is an idyllic paradise where everything and everyone appears to be perfect. But beneath the surface is a world of shifting loyalties and identities, of kids living secret lives hidden from their parents, and of parents living secret lives hidden from their children. Episodes comprise: 'The Aftermath', 'The Shape of Things to Come', 'The End of Innocence', 'The Last Waltz', 'The Perfect Storm', 'The Swells', 'The Anger Management', 'The Game Plan', 'The Disconnect', 'The Chrismukkah Bar Mitz-vahkkah', 'The Safe Harbour', 'The Sister Act', 'The Pot Stirrer', 'The Cliffhanger', 'The Heavy Lifting', 'The Road Warrior', 'The Journey', 'The Undertow', 'The Secrets and Lies', 'The Day After Tomorrow', 'The Dawn Patrol', 'The College Try', 'The Party Favour', 'The Man of the Year' and 'The Graduates'.

Synopsis

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 OC.

Firstly can i just say that iv always loved watching the OC. I was hooked from the first season...and in my honest opinion, the freshman year of the show will ALWAYS be the best. But i think in general the series has held itself together.. i still want to watch it every week, i still want to buy the box sets.

This season opened following a great season finale in season 2.. and although its resolved rather quickly, the flashbacks and what not still show that the finale was integral to the characters.

Season 3 is great viewing and the characters are still every bit as interesting, funny, even annoying in some cases, as the first season. The new addictions to the cast do a good job. especially Volchek played Cam Giganet. Just like Oliver...you can't help but want to slap him!

If you liked the first two seasons...you will be very satisfied with the third instalement...which dramatically paves the way for the fourth season.

oh and btw there are SEVEN discs, not SIX... and TWO special features... i know its not much to shout about but worth letting people know there is something.

short and simple review:

season 1 - awesome

season 2 - good

season 3 - very good

after watching season 3 i felt it took a short while to get going, but once it did it was more entertaining than the 2nd season. admittedly however, in places it does get a little bizarre in terms of storeylines and connections to the previous seasons.

overall, if your a fan and havent seen the 3rd season, theres no reason why you shouldnt buy it in my opinion.

Season 3 has its good points and its not so good points. It's much darker than the previous 2 seasons: Seth doesn't get into Brown which causes a rift between him and Summer, Marissa and Ryan break up which propels Marissa into the arms of the heavily tattooed 'bad boy' Volchok, and Ryan gets kicked out of Harbour by the new Dean and struggles to deal with his his anger management. It's also full of change. Marrisa gets sent to public school, and the Core 4 are in danger of dissolving into the Core 3 minus one. But as much as I love The OC I cannot ignore the flaws which abound. Quite simply, the season lacks cohesion, but that is a flaw in the writing which is arguably visible in Seasons 1 and 2 as well. The emerging storyline with Kirsten and con artist Charlotte fizzles out without really leading anywhere. The evil Dean Hess and his sidekick Taylor hits the ground without making a lasting impact. And as for Johnny...don't even go there. The writers seem at a loss when it comes to wrapping up story arcs. Most of the guest stars either move away (think Anna, Lindsey and Alex) or get killed off. But it's not all bad news. Yes, Marissa is slightly (or even very) annoying, and sometimes you want to shake Seth for not being honest with Summer, but it's still a very enjoyable season. There are things that perhaps could have been done differently. Taylor is immensely irritating at the beginning of the season, and tries to break Summer and Seth up. But she certainly adds new energy to the show and the writers seem to like her. I just wish the writers had had the hindsight to know they were going to put her with Ryan in the fourth season, because Taylor and Ryan have no chemistry at all in the few scenes they share here. So: the writing is weak in places, but when you ignore that The OC is still good fun, and maintains the ability to shock.

Takes a little while to get going this time and feels like a lot has changed. Kirsten and Sandy's relationship is on the rocks (no pun intended) after Kirsten is admitted into rehab for a drink problem. New characters take their place but a while to settle into the heart of a huge OC fan. The same old thing of someone trying to split Ryan and Marissa up but then it all comes good with an amazingly shocking finish, you'll finish the season wishing that just for once Josh Schwartz (creator)cant have a happy ending but then i suppose it wouldnt be the OC and people desparate to see the 4th Season.

Definately worth a purchase you'll find yourself hooked living every part of the guys lives, if your not in tears at the end i dont know how yu managed it.

Season 1 catapulted The OC into the history books, and Season 2 was an under-rated follow-up. But in Season 3 you get the feeling that the producers are scraping the bottom of the barrel to create storylines we can relate to or care about. Realism was never what The OC did best, but in Season 3 the boundaries are pushed and even Bad Girls can be said to be as realistic as this 25-episode marathon which shows all the signs of a show nearing its expiry date; which is a shame because the brilliance of the first two series' showed promise for The OC to become a long-term installment in TV schedules.

The season isn't without its plus points. Rachel Bilson's Summer continues to be the quirky, funny, attractive counter to Mischa Barton's Marissa, who for some strange reason turns to the dark side. Adam Brody's Seth continues to hold up his smart sense of wit but at times it's a bit too much, and Kelly Rowan, Melinda Clarke, and Peter Gallagher continue to give spectacular performances as Kirsten, Julie and Sandy respectively. On the down-side, Ben McKenzie's Ryan is even more wooden than before, and the insinuation that we're supposed to interpret the stunningly sexy Taylor as a Billy-No-Mates is asking alot.

Giving the characters so much drama means they reach their expiry date too soon, so keeping additional characters like Season 2's Zach, Lindsay and Alex could have given the show a bit more mileage. How much more can they do with Seth and Summer's relationship? Or Kirsten and Sandy's marriage? Apparently the producer has promised a "complete re-invention" of the show for Season 4 - if he doesn't deliver, the end of The OC could be upon us.
