Alright, I will start this off by admitting that I am a 27 year old male and my friends gather once a year for an OC marathon weekend. I promise you it is much cooler than it sounds. Anyway, for the second annual this year we threw in season 2 after seeing that it was only $9.99 (now $11.99 at this writing). Let me tell you, while often overlooked as a letdown to a spectacular Season 1, Season 2 brings the heat. I think this has been forgotten over time. Clearly, it deserves a number 2 ranking (1,2,4, worst season ever: 3) in the OC season pantheon.
Yes, there are some misses: Mallpisode, Any scene with Mischa Barton that did not include Olivia Wilde, Lindsay/Ryan awful romance, most of the Zach/Seth comic book stuff, and of course DJ trying to steal Ryan's thunder as Marissa's boyfriend who doesn't talk.
But to judge a season you need to look at the hits, and there were many: Great Caleb season all around, Kiki's drinking problem (fresh margs anyone?),...
The second series is even better than the first IMO. Huge value, there are 24 episodes just in this season. There was no skipping/DVD damage, even though these discs were preloved. The plastic case for the first dvd is damaged so it doesn't keep the disc contained when the box is open and you are trying to swap discs around. But that's a very small problem, and acceptable considering this was a 2nd hand item. And since this was the only thing that was wrong with it. Some of the discs looked a bit less than pristine but didn't effect play.
No spoilers here. Seth, Summer, Zach and Ryan and Marisa are now fully formed characters exploring their lives. The season ends on a huge shocking cliffhanger.
I never watch "normal" tv, so I had no idea this series had even been on television 10+ years ago (!) But I discovered it by accident and just LOVE this show :-) The characters are so fun, well drawn, and interesting. There is REAL emotion in most of the story lines and performances. I am especially impressed by Adam Brody's character -- a dork with a heart of gold and SO CLEVER!!! This is just a WONDERFUL series and I recommend it most highly :-)
