And with these final 16 episodes, the once pop-cultural phenomenon "The OC" finally fades to white. It had been a rocky road for the series and the characters over the 4-years that `The OC' aired on the FOX network, but through it all the series persisted.
The theme of season 4 was essentially `going back to the beginning' and that was exactly what happened in this final season. Since all the main characters either died or graduated high school in the third season finale, the four season premier seemed more like a pilot than a season finale of a show near its end. And for 15 additional episodes the writers brought the humor, wackiness, and pop cultural refrences that made the series so popular to begin with back, leaving the melodrama at a bare minimum.
I'm sad to see `the OC' go, it will always be a part of my history because for better or for worse I watched the show through every-one of its 94 episodes, and I will remember these characters fondly. I also...
I deeply regret both that FOX didn't order a slate of episodes for THE O.C.'s final season and even more strongly regret that they cancelled it when it still had a lot of life left in it. Season Three had been a thudding disappointment that both chased off a lot of previous fans and made FOX consider ending it. The network never really gave it a chance in its final season, putting it in a timeslot in which it couldn't possible maintain strong ratings. Nonetheless, after the dismal third season, it was great to see the series regain the charm that had made it so much fun to watch in its first and most of its second season.
One of the reasons for the success of the show in the fourth season is that they finally seemed to realize that the endless number of hated characters that popped up over the years were simply that: hated. They were not characters we loved to hate, we simply didn't like them. It all started with Oliver and then mushroomed in the next two seasons,...
For those who aren't sure if Season 4 would be good after a terrible season 3, I assure you that this is a great rebound. I didn't expect much after Marissa's death, but the show rebuilt itself from the ground up in the 4th Season. The show was dying on its old legs and dynamics, but with the colossal event that changed the series, Marissa's death, new life was breathed into the show.
You'll find much more comedy this season than in Season 3, much like in the show's glory days in Season 1. So if you strayed from this show after a mediocre to decent Season 2 and a terrible Season 3, your faith should be restored with this one.
