The packaging is great and slim.

It's very sad to see it all end, but it's nice to go back and watch all The O.C. episodes.

And with these final 16 episodes, the once pop-cultural phenomenon "The OC" finally fades to white. It had been a rocky road for the series and the characters over the 4-years that `The OC' aired on the FOX network, but through it all the series persisted.

The theme of season 4 was essentially `going back to the beginning' and that was exactly what happened in this final season. Since all the main characters either died or graduated high school in the third season finale, the four season premier seemed more like a pilot than a season finale of a show near its end. And for 15 additional episodes the writers brought the humor, wackiness, and pop cultural refrences that made the series so popular to begin with back, leaving the melodrama at a bare minimum.

I'm sad to see `the OC' go, it will always be a part of my history because for better or for worse I watched the show through every-one of its 94 episodes, and I will remember these characters fondly. I also need to mention the series finale, which to my amazement didn't dissapoint in the least, it was lighthearted, fun, zany, and had all the right ingredients, and definitely worth a rental if you just want to see how the series comes to a close.

This DVD set contains all 16-episodes on 5 discs, in additional to deleted Scenes, Gag Reel, 2 Featurettes, as well as a commentary on the final episode, `The end is not Near, it's Here'

I deeply regret both that FOX didn't order a slate of episodes for THE O.C.'s final season and even more strongly regret that they cancelled it when it still had a lot of life left in it. Season Three had been a thudding disappointment that both chased off a lot of previous fans and made FOX consider ending it. The network never really gave it a chance in its final season, putting it in a timeslot in which it couldn't possible maintain strong ratings. Nonetheless, after the dismal third season, it was great to see the series regain the charm that had made it so much fun to watch in its first and most of its second season.

One of the reasons for the success of the show in the fourth season is that they finally seemed to realize that the endless number of hated characters that popped up over the years were simply that: hated. They were not characters we loved to hate, we simply didn't like them. It all started with Oliver and then mushroomed in the next two seasons, exploding in Season Three. But this year they managed to avoid introducing any truly awful characters. I never really warmed up to Ché and Taylor's French ex-husband was not very likable, but neither approached the loathsome characters of the first two season. Instead, we were left mainly with the same characters that were the real reasons we enjoyed the show all along.

I must admit that at first I was leery about the reappearance of Taylor and Kaitlin. The latter in Season Three seemed to be on the verge of being as self-destructive as Marissa had been. With Marissa gone I was certain that Kaitlin was going to go down her path. Instead, the writers took her character in a number of unexpected ways and she ended up being a delightful character. But even more shocking was what they did with Taylor.

For those who aren't sure if Season 4 would be good after a terrible season 3, I assure you that this is a great rebound. I didn't expect much after Marissa's death, but the show rebuilt itself from the ground up in the 4th Season. The show was dying on its old legs and dynamics, but with the colossal event that changed the series, Marissa's death, new life was breathed into the show.

You'll find much more comedy this season than in Season 3, much like in the show's glory days in Season 1. So if you strayed from this show after a mediocre to decent Season 2 and a terrible Season 3, your faith should be restored with this one.

The fourth season of The O.C. was one of the highlights of the 2006-2007 season. After a good but not outstanding second season and a very bad third one, the show finally began to face the sun that made its fame during its first speech perfect season. Yes, killing Marissa Cooper was a tough decision to make and the way it was taken care of wasn't really thrilling or good even if you hated that character. But then you watch the season premiere and you feel like her death was just useful.

The show finally focused on three characters portrayed by three amazing actors : Julie (Melinda Clarke), Summer (Rachel Bilson) and of course Ryan (Ben McKenzie). And it was just great again. The awesome and beautiful Autumn Reeser and Willa Holland were made regulars and they were a great addition to the cast, making sure the balance between drama and comedy was respected. In fact the season is more funny than dramatic. Because all the plotlines revolve about quality and light stuffs : new romances, old romances, babies, weddings, French talkshows, fun natural disasters, slutty aliens and of course family.

With great indie music, Christmukkuh and all the things that made The O.C. the phenomenon that redefined a generation, you will not want to miss this season which will only leave you with anger concerning the network that cancelled the show, Fox. But again you will think this is the perfect way to end this history. Rating : A
