Throughout our lives, we experience drama, heartbreak and random things that we never thought we would.  None of it compares to the drama faced by the collective cast of Fox’s hit show The O.C.  Sure, it is unbelievable at times but how boring would it be if it was realistic?

The O.C. is an escape.  An escape from that reality that is so boring, or dramatic at time.  Season 2 takes a little bit longer to get into whereas season 1 hooked you immediately.  But, the difference is that we are already hooked.  We know the cast and we root for them.  Season 2 is packed with the drama, the twists, the turns and the heartache that made us fans in the first place.  Season 2 returns to it’s form a few episodes in and, once it does, it never lets up through the cliffhanging final episode.
