Reviewed: The final OC montage

So what, Frank Atwood is an alcoholic abusive convicted felon for three and a half seasons, and then all of a sudden he fathers Julie’s child, wears a suit to work, and becomes the model dad just because Kevin Sorbo has an extended guest appearance? Everything sucked except for the final two minutes when Ryan is a hot architect, and then I became instantly depressed at not being able to see Ben Mackenzie on tv anymore.

I mean, really, what’s the deal? Every season of the OC has ended with an awesome montage except the final one. (1: Ryan knocks up his girlfriend and goes back to Chino while Seth sails out into the Pacific alone, 2: Marissa shoots Ryan’s ex-con brother as he’s trying to kill Ryan, 3: Ryan is run off the road by Volchuk, leading to Marissa’s death in his arms.) Also, seasons 1 and 2, had the best montage songs ever; Jeff Buckley’s “Hallelujah” and Imogen Heap’s “Hide and Seek”, respectively.

And I guess Kirsten and Taylor weren’t doing anything cool enough in their lives five years later to make the montage.

16 Stars. Pretty sorry as far as montages go. At first I thought it sucked that Marissa didn’t make the montage, but then I thought, oh wait, she’s dead.
