We Love the OC is a podcast dedicated to the un-ironic love of the 2003 Fox series The OC.
We do a deep dive into one episode per week where we discuss everything from the music and fashion of the episode to the historical and cultural contexts of the time that it aired. Our belief is that this show is not only fun to talk about, but important to talk about because of its place in the culture of mid-2000s America.
Be prepared to think critically, laugh earnestly, and perhaps receive a twinge of nostalgia as we examine the greatest American Teen Drama of all time.
We love the OC, and we think you should love the OC too.

    The Ringer.com just listed this episode as #9 on their "100 Best TV Episodes of the Century" list. TV critic Chris Ryan listed it at #1 on his "Best Pilots of the 21st Century" list. That is because it is as close to a perfect episode of television as you can get.

    Episode 2: The Model Home

    Episode 2: The Model Home

    Welcome to the 2nd episode of We Love the OC. This week, we discuss the neverending nature of Holly's parties, the second demension to Luke's character, and the first (and only) proper use of Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah. A triumphant punch from Ryan leaves this episode with one of the most memorable lines from the show, and if your bike shop in 2003 was sold out of pegs, this episode was the reason why.


    Also, will the belt change hands in this episode? Listen to the end to find out!

    Episode 3: The Gamble

    Welcome to the 3rd episode of We Love the OC. This week, we discuss the time vortex that the citizens of the OC live in, the rise of Julie Cooper (and her velour tracksuits), and the most emotional episode of The OC yet. At casino night, when the beat of the floor tom starts, it doesn't stop until multiple relationships are on the brink of collapse.


    HEY! We said no video game!

    Episode 5: The Outsider

    Welcome to the 5th episode of We Love the OC. This week we take a trip to "Crab Shirt Ryan's I Love This Bar & Grill"! What's on the menu? Lobster, day old mac and cheese, and grilled cheese made on an actual grill. Ryan finally asks Marissa on a date, Sandy introduces Jimmy to Dynasty Warriors, and Seth buys tickets to an IMAX movie on sharks.


    Needless to say, someone gets shot.

    Episode 6: The Girlfriend

    Welcome to the 6th episode of We Love the OC. This week we play a game called "Cute or Creepy", as Caleb's 25-year-old girlfriend, and retired model, Gabrielle Gosling makes moves on 15-year-old Ryan. (Hint: its mostly creepy). Sandy railroads his wife, Ryan pushes Marissa into Luke's arms (and bed), and Summer kisses Seth?!


    Kerbs also informs us that the Pumpkin Spiced Latte was released this same month. Just. The. Facts.

Hilarious and insightful

I am so glad I found this podcast. It is the perfect show to listen to while watching or rewatching The OC. The chemistry between the hosts is fantastic and I love how the conversations go beyond just recapping episodes to actually analyzing the narrative in a really insightful way.

Great

If you love the O.C. this is THE companion show to it, they’re as enthusiastic about the show and its’ quirks as the biggest fans are. Everybody is clever and funny. Love it.
