You know the season one finale of the OC where Ryan leaves and Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley is playing and Marissa is staring over the balcony and Seth is sailing away and Kirsten is sobbing into Ryan’s old sheets and Sandy comforts her and the sun is setting as the car gets further and further away paralleling how the metaphorical sun is setting on Ryan’s new life and he’s going back to the darkness of his old one and it’s tone is captured PERFECTLY with such a beautiful and sad song? Yeah they don’t make television like that anymore.

“It was really a couple episodes later when we really started to feel the chemistry with the cast come together.There was a scene in the second episode where Ryan and Seth and Marissa are all on the boardwalk together and Ryan and Marissa are on his bike and she’s riding on the handle bars and Seth is on his skateboard — it just felt really free and very, very real too.”

I can’t believe we are at this point right now. Simply, thank you to this beautiful show and everyone that has continued honoring its legacy. May this gem of a story continue to shine.
