Matt really reminds me of the water polo guy that Seth was competing with. Booooooring.

It's boring. At least last season, stuff happened. It still sucked, but there was a plot.

For a minute there, I thought Sandy's new partner was lying about the whole "girlfriend in Chicago" thing, and he would end up putting the homo-moves on Ryan.
("Hey teenage boy, blow off your hot girlfriend and help me write a report instead")
But then that would have been an interesting turn of events.

How can a show have scenes in a strip club and still be this boring?

Sorry, but the stripper with a heart of gold that's just doing it to pay her way through law school is just too cliche, even for The O.C.

I may be giving up on the series soon. I was completely bored by the episode. There's no tension anymore. Next week has promise, but if it's not good, I may just wait for the DVDs.

It doesn't help that this is network TV. Is it really a strip club if there's no stripping?

Lois Lane in a red, white, and blue bra would've made it a little more interesting.

They need to get rid of the extra characters, confine the main cast to the Cohen household and start drinking a ginormous amount of alcohol. And surprise everyone w/ appearances by Anna, Luke, Jimmy and Hailey, who will also partake in the activities.

I did enjoy the Seth/Summer story - w/ his jealousy of her near-perfect SAT score.

What was Summer's SAT score? My cable box audio cut out the exact moment she said her score. I was guessing it was a perfect 1500, but I guess it wasn't.

Well, 1600 USED to be a perfect score.....but theyve since changed it, adding three 800 point sections.

Summer got a 2300, If i remember correctly.

Yep, she had a 2300 out of 2400 on the new and improved SAT2. The info was fresh in my mind because I just read in the paper about a SLUH student who had perfect scores on both the ACT and the SAT.

Crappy episode

The thing with Sandy and his partner was pointless. Johnny needs to go away as well.

I think The OC has probably gone back to square one with this dull episode.

I thought The OC was starting to go somewhere, when Julie kicked out that silly Charlotte character and we then move onto more interesting plots involving Kirsten and Julie, but then we hit the buffers again.

A guy in my school when i lived in Germany got a 1590 on his SAT (old school test).

The guy was going to harvard. I'm sure he's in a dumpster somewhere
