Critic Reviews for The O.C.: Season 4

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

The series did an excellent job of bringing back the strong early interaction between the main cast, and most importantly, the overall sense of fun that had been missing for so much of the previous year.

The O.C. represented a new wave in self-referential teen TV that could be just as good and clever as its "adult" counterparts, while also tapping into a more genuinely youthful perspective.

It's probably worth sticking around a little more, since there is potential that this season could be at least kinda' back on track. But if you've already bailed on the show, I don't know that there's enough to justify a reinvestment.

The series used up three times as much plot as any other drama around. It burned through whole arcs of character development in one episode and started repeating itself.

Now I see what I missed: the rise of Autumn Reeser's Taylor as a fine, funny love interest for Ryan, lots of good jokes from a clearly-too-old-yet-still-game Seth, and a succession of terrific subplots and scenes for his underrated parents.

The O.C. is once again in great creative shape, with believable storylines and plenty of the razor-sharp wit at which the series excels.
