Back to original Glory
4 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once a hit t.v. show, the OC really lost viewers throughout the duration of season 3. People didn't enjoy the story lines, the new characters, and of course the final outcome: the death of Marissa Cooper. I thought the Avengers was a truly fabulous episode. Every bit of it was excellent. It's good that it takes place 5 months after so there isn't much grieving. Except, from Ryan and Julie.

Although the first episode didn't seem very "oc-ish", Josh Schwartz (the creator) said the first four episodes are about Ryan moving on. After that, the OC will go back to the comedy and the dramatic story lines we all know and love.

Even though Marissa Cooper was a main character on the show, the show hasn't failed or died AT ALL. The two new series regulars, Taylor Townsend (Autumn Reeser) and Kaitlin Cooper (Willa Holland), have definitely brought a new dynamic to the show. Taylor is hilarious and Kaitlin is the new generation of the OC at age 15. The cast is still amazing without Marissa (Mischa Barton) and I think viewers should give season 4 a chance. Once you see the first episode, the Avengers, I promise you'll be satisfied.
