Cute and fun.
12 March 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

When Summer and Marissa run into Grady Bridges, the star of Summer's favorite prime-time soap 'The Valley', he invites them to an LA party, and they accept. On the road trip to LA, Seth, Summer, Marissa, and Ryan run into Hailey, now working at a strip club. Jimmy and Sandy present their restaurant to Newport's finest and approach Caleb for some financial help.

This episode is a reminder of what the show is really about. I loved the irony with "The Valley" it was so hilarious, it made me smile. Adam Brody has his own band and he is known for improvising on camera. And at the time, Adam and Rachel (Seth and Summer) where actually dating.

I loved watching Colin Hanks on the show, and hated Paris Hilton. She totally ruined the scenes with Seth and Summer.
