Do colleges have pre-frosh orientations before high school graduation? I remember going to orientations when I was applying to universities and obviously they have them when you first arrive on campus for your freshman year, but I don't remember any in the springtime.

Then again, I also don't remember everyone getting their acceptance letters on the same day. Or a rejection letter arriving in a big envelope.

Oh well, who cares? Anna Stern is back tonight! That should make this show at least moderately watchable.

Wait, if Seth didn't get into college, which orientation is he going to?

Last episode ended with him scheming to get into Brown, so I imagine that's where he'll run into Anna.

My college had one in the springtime.

Anna's hair extensions look ridiculous on her.

I was thinking she doesn't look near as good as she did during S1 or when she was on Entourage. Thankfully, the chemistry is still there. That's what made S1 so great - the entire cast was perfect and they all meshed so well on screen. But no - they had to get rid of Anna, Luke, Jimmy, Caleb, Hailey...

I LOVE ANNA!


Marisa and Ryan need to NEVER get together again.

Seth needs to just TELL Summer. Pull her aside and just blurt it out!

And I find it weird that ALL the colleges have this same "pre" orientation on the SAME weekend. And um also, did Summer, Ryan, or Marissa even ACCEPT admission to Brown and UC:B?

AH, some aspects of this college stuff is cute, while others are downright ridiculous!

Well, Ryan can believe easier now since Theresa confirmed the paternity of her boy.

Summer's gonna stew for the entire plan ride home, damn, that would suck.

Marissa going back to Volchuk's pad was ick-ville.

Kirsten's off the wagon once again.

Yeah, Ryan goes overboard! About time Volchuk got a fist full of Atwood.

I said, "Goal!", when Kirsten downed the wine. And my wife got mad at me.



Kirsten's toast was great. And Julie still calls her "Kiki".

As much as Mischa Barton can annoy me on this show, she is a million times better than she was in S1.

I haven't seen The Sound of Music in a long time, but didn't the guy from the gazebo end up being a Nazi who almost foiled the von Trapp's escape at the end of the movie?

This episode reminded me of season 1 in the way i would sit there anxious waiting for them to get back to Seth, Summer, and Anna.

Anna looked OLD!!! Some serious bags under those eyes. What do they put in the water in Pittsburgh?

This was not a very good episode, Anna notwithstanding. Taylor was once again MIA(although they showed her in next week's preview). The coincidental timing of the college orientations was absurd. And they're once again recycling storylines. Kirsten is an alkey once more. And I really shuddered at Marissa leaving Berkeley to comfort Ryan. That scene coupled with the preview of him attacking Voltron better not be a hint at the two of them getting back together yet again. I swore if that happened, I was done with this show.

Samaire Armstrong is 25 years old. I think the hair extensions made her look older as well.

I can't remember an episode when Mishca Barton had so much dialog! She actually held a conversation at times!!!

All that make-up didn't help either.

It was a lot less than she wore in S1.

Seth is such a pussy.

Eddie was played by Eric Balfour if I recall correctly. He's not Hispanic.

I don't watch the show regularly anymore but saw the last 20 minutes last night. Interesting to see they brought both Anna and Theresa back. Two characters that never should have gone away in the first place.

About the baby. Let's see, he has red hair, blue eyes and looks anything but Hispanic. This is a Soap after all.

I'd ask to see the Paternity test.
