What ever happened to The O.C.?

By way of explanation as to why we haven't been writing about The O.C. this season, we thought we'd just post this recent exchange with a reader.


Dear Amy's Robot,

First, thanks. If it weren't for Amy's Robot, I never would have added Disc 1 of The O.C. Season 1 to my Netflix queue, in an effort to combat post-election depression. As it turned out, my wife and I watched all four episodes in one sitting, immediately drove to Target to buy the boxed set, and TiVoed the first 2 episodes of Season 2 while we finished off Season 1 on DVD.

At first, we thought that Season 2 was just off to a slow start, the
writers would settle back into their groove and The O.C. we had grown to love would soon return. Sadly, it's only gone from passable to bad to worse. For a while, I thought that Lindsay was the problem; get rid of her and things would right themselves. Now, however, especially after the past two episodes, I've had to admit to myself that the whole show (plot, dialogue, characters) has become flat, uninspired, not funny, even boring.

I noticed that, since the premiere, Amy's Robot has been silent on the subject of The O.C. I have to know: Do you agree that The O.C. has become a shadow of its former self? Or do you see qualities in Season 2 that I'm somehow missing?



Dear Michael,


Amy's Robot
