The O.C.- most unimaginative script writers.

All that's on is people breaking up with eachother. I check in on it time to time coz its more of a comedy. They break up for no reason. But Merissa is the definition of sexy!

It's just a re-hash of Dawsons creek and 90210, i.e. rubbish. Seen a few minutes of a few episodes, doesn't really entice me to watch more.

It's just entertainment. Why get worked up?

It's not a take off of Dawson's Creek. Even though I loved watching DC, it annoyed me at times with the big words and silly story lines.

The OC is far more entertaining Never seen 90210 so can't comment on that

No it's not, I hate when people compare it to Dawson's Creek (only people who have only watched snippits).

The script may not be the most imaginative, but the show is doing great in the ratings so why risk that?

They did bring in the new lesbian storyline, which I'm sure will entice the lads.

lets be honest. if they brought out a tv drama that was completely different, no one here would watch it.

Oh Jesus I hate The OC. Everybody hooks up in random permutations, then the next week they all swap. Now the attention whore lesbian story? What happened, did the writers run out of hetero combinations? And what the hell age is anybody supposed to be?

They put all the character names in two hats, male in one and female in the other. They pick one from each, put the names into a computer and it generates a story for them, the writers then just press print and it's all done. The must have accidently put a female name into the male hat and a female name was picked from both hats. The writers didn't know what to do so just put both female names into the computer.

I'm sure I seen an episode of this where it turned out alot of them were secretly related to each other.

I think it was the Chrismanakauh episode. Personally I thought Festivus was a much better idea.
