The first episode is here and I listened to it from the Apple podcasts app, not realizing the YouTube version had ~visuals~ such as Captain Oats. Anyways, it was a good episode and my notes really don't even begin to cover it!

Lord how messy Ben would become. The affair with Morena is wild. Did they talk to Tate Donovan yet?

I hope they talk about the iconic scene of Mischa screaming next to her pool after that scene with her mom.

Morena guest starred on the OC in S3 which is even crazier. And apparently Ben didn’t remember her when they met years later lol

A side plot we never got was Seth Cohen and the friends he gave sailing lessons to.
Thst would’ve been really cute tbh

I miss this show and the era of my life it represents. Everything was so simple and I’ve never been to the west coast before and was curious if everyone lived like that
I don’t think I could rewatch it or listen to the podcast the nostalgia would hit me too hard then again here I am procrastinating on a dying Russian livejrounal community when I should be doing a PPT so I probably have time to deal with the sadness the nostalgia will inevitably bring

I completely get this. When I watch The OC or Gossip Girl I feel so nostalgic for that time in my life it hurts. It’s like when the future was still The Future in capital letters and anything was possible, including dreaming of living in nyc or California and being rich and fabulous lol.

Exactly. And it didn’t feel so far away. Now it feels like that time and living in California in an environment like that is something from another world. I miss having hope and dreams lol and feeling like it might actually happen now knowing it won’t makes me sad but also it could never be the way I imagined it so

I appreciate Ben’s shyness and nervousness that he brought to the role. Garrett would’ve been good but he’s almost too gritty imo. He would’ve been an excellent Trey honestly.

Rewatching it has truly made me realize how great of an actor Ben is.

I’ve been rewatching the first season and it’s so good. The cast’s chemistry is incredible.

Everyone’s having so much fun in the beginning. The reason season 3 sucks so much is you can tell the actors (especially Mischa, Adam, and Ben) are OVER it.
