The OC: Season 2 Review

Image for The OC: Season 2

Another season of the California set drama, with froth aplenty

★★★★★

When your prime ‘will they/won’t they’ pairings are both answered with ‘yes they will, repeatedly’ by the middle of the first season, you’re leaving yourself very few places to go. The sophomore season of Josh Schwartz’s classy froth gets a touch desperate in trying to retain viewers, introducing teen lesbianism (read: winsome looks at each other’s bikinis) to spice things up and chipping away at the perfect 20-year marriage of Sandy and Kirsten. It still fulfills its remit of optical junkfood but, like its female stars, the storylines are starting to look malnourished.
