For some odd reason, I have never neglected to watch a season of Laguna Beach or The Hills. I never plan on it, but somehow I sit down at the right time of a rerun and end up catching every episode of each season. I would call them all a guilty pleasure, but I always felt there was something lacking in the show, something that made me not truly enjoy what I was watching or make me coming back for more. Somehow I missed the season of 8th and Ocean. I heard about it from my friends, but I never sat down at the right time to catch an episode. So I rented it out of curiosity and discovered the thing that was so lacking from it's MTV siblings. This show has heart. A show about ten models and I find more substance in their day to day encounters than any fight between Heidi and Lauren. Sure there are fights. Sure there are shallow people. Sure the stories may be partly fabricated. But you really get a sense that these people truly care about each other, you see them struggle through morals, and confidence issues, and not always succeeding. They actually build each other up instead of spending most of their time tearing each other down, or trying to steal each other's boyfriends. Don't watch this show because you want to see something mentally enriching, but also don't judge this show until you see the heart I'm talking about.
