The O.C. Should Cancel Its Cancellation


There's nothing like the reality and freedom of series cancellation to get the creative juices flowing. For sure, FOX's The O.C. was heading for shit and deserved to be canceled but in the past few weeks the show has gone through a dynamic rejuvenation worthy of re-instatement. The show has been turned on its head with Ryan's transformation from brooding, tough guy loner to active participant in the human race, Taylor's morph from cartoonish high school caricature to smart girl with feelings, Seth and Summer's maturing relationship, Julie Cooper's shift from vapid bitch to love struck nice girl (even if she doesn't really love the Bull oops...Bullet...or stay with him...shouldn't write while drinking a martini), Kaitlin Cooper's change from stuck up, ego-centric mean girl to supportive daughter and Sandy and Kirsten Cohen's transition from perfect couple to even more perfect couple.

FOX, you ought to reconsider your cancellation. Or, at least threaten all shows with cancellation in order to achieve improved creativity. And yes, we admit we watch the show.

I need this show to die. I've been working hard for a few years to make it happen.

oh please, Kaitlin is not a supportive daughter. she doesn't want her mom to be happy, she wants The Bullet's money.

Steve, I agree with you.

But, it's Bullet not Bull and Julie chose Frank last night anyway giving up the money for love. Sweet.

Hey, they canceled Firefly after 12 episodes, and fans loved it so much they made a movie about it, yet this load of crap took a few seasons to finally belly-up. I say it's about time they actually start canceling the bad shows too...

The OC should canel its Cancielation i love that show and it had gotten so GOOD i own all the seasons and it should not be canceled the last epsode will be the hardest ever but even though i can watch them again it will STINK not to see new ones with our favorite tv teenageers. You woun't get to see what happens witha nyone anymore! I don't know why they are doing this. The only reasons the vieweres went down is beacuse of Greys Anotmony and that show will get old real fast they can't base everything off doctors so the oc can be so much better than that show it already is! The viewers will go up if you give it another chance! I own all the CD's and DVD's! I don't know why you are canceling! That stinks ALOT! Why don't they cancel someother tv show like two and a half men not the OC! IT STINKS! CANCEL THE CANCELATION!

ok you fuckfaces!

the o.c. was the best freaking show ever & it ended tonight & i cried so freaking much & people stopped watching when marissa died because they were "believed to be soulmates" & i was one of those people & didn't even think to give it another chance well of course until tivo & boredum happened & its stupid that mischa barton left to supposedly "start a movie career" when we all know that never happened .. . im so disappointed that the viewers & even the writers gave up on the show & as for now i'll justspend every thursday night in a great depression.

oh & "makethelogobigger" I AM GOING TO KICK YOUR ASS! SHUT THE HELL UP! I NEED you TO DIE!
