Sandy and Kristen are stranded at the local shopping center where Kristen has an accident.

pretty much the worst episode of the o.c. i've ever seen.
16 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i can't believe the o.c. would go to that extent trying to make the viewers into the show. there has been a few other bad episodes, but this one takes the cake by far. trying to shoot it with cameras like it was an episode of the shield. i still can't get over that they would try try to pull something like that off. shoot it like the others, would have made it a little more more worth watching.

i am a fan of the show, but this one really made me think twice of what i was watching. it still doesn't make sense to me that they would try to pull off something like this... maybe they should have just called it after last season. i really don't care that it's going off the air now after seeing this one.
