The O.C., Season 1
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
When Ryan Atwood, a tough, guarded, fiercely intelligent 16-year-old, plunges headlong into the wealthy, privileged community of Newport Beach, California, he soon discovers that the ruling families of Orange County are every bit as territorial as the tough crowd with which he ran on the streets of Chino. For Sandy Cohen, the idealistic public defender who takes Ryan in; his wife, Kirsten, the linchpin of O.C. society; their awkward adolescent son, Seth; and the beautiful, troubled girl next door, Marissa Cooper — Ryan's presence will forever change their lives.

need seasons 2 & 3
They need to put season 2 and 3 on! I Love this show, it sucked when they had to stop doing the show, I LOVE the o.c!!!
Way Under-Rated. iTunes, Where Are Seasons 2 and 3?
This show is usually considered to be something only teenage girls watch. I just finished this season, which I bought mostly from iTunes, and liked it immensely. The writing is good to great, the acting is good for the most part, the obscure references and Jewish humor is also very good. The stories can become redundant and cheesy at times, but all in all this was a worthy view, with a very powerful closing montage. However, I would request that iTunes put up seasons 2 and 3, as that would be much appreciated.
Where are seasons 2 and 3?
Please put up seasons 2 and 3 iTunes!
