From the team behind MTVs genre-bending series Laguna Beach comes the next addiction in television. 8th & Ocean tells the story of 10 aspiring models living together in a beachfront apartment complex while enduring the cut-throat world of fashion. Capturing the real lives of the cast with the look and feel of a drama, 8th & Ocean is shot in the style of a narrative film, but with an "indie edge." There are no interviews or confessionals the stories are told purely through probing camerawork, eclectic music and unscripted dialogue.
Take equal parts Laguna Beach, The Real World, and Melrose Place and you get MTV's reality series 8th & Ocean. Set in the oh-so-glamorous world of modeling (Miami style), the show focuses on the lives (and loves) of 10 hotties trying to become the next Gisele Bundchen and Jason Lewis (Sex and the City). The cast is young, brash, and entertaining, although at times not very realistic about their chosen careers. One of the girls is averse to modeling risqué clothes for photo shoots. She seems to forget that she's a model. In Miami. And that most of the civilians walking around on the beach are flaunting less clothing than she is. As for Vinci, the resident heartthrob, he seems intent on sabotaging his own burgeoning career by being forever late (if he shows up at all).
8th & Ocean has plenty of eye candy to offer in the 10 episodes here. Between the fast editing, hormonally charged vignettes, and emo background music meant to make viewers pine along with the cast, it's easy to get carried away with the kids' dramas. Which two will sleep together? Will Sabrina's skin problem ever clear up? Will any of them become household names? No, they're not life or death dilemmas. But for the majority of folks who will never be mistaken for a model, it's nice to see that even the beautiful people are plagued by insecurities. And zits. --Jae-Ha Kim

What's gonna suck when you buy it is on the first disc you have the previews to freakin' laguna beach and the hills and you can't skip over it so it's like walk away for three minutes and come back. (hate you guys for that crap. first time great but IT SUCKS TO WATCH IT.)
The shows are great. I wish they'd had an extended show or a never before aired show. The dvd goes through really fast. Man this is such a great show.
Deleted scenes are QUICK. great but 2 QUICK!!!! The TRL appearance is on it, which I'm offended by b/c none of the people i watched the show for are on it. (No offense Brit, Twins, and Vinci)
The MTV overdrive is on it which is GREATTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!
The bios could have been better. I would have liked to see a resume or some pictures or somethin!!!
There's an audition section which is great!!!! Loved Talesha's the best. The twins started arguing again. Come on girls!!!
I always see TRacie on tv now and I love her I'm pissed she left the show. But I see her on everything. I saw Vinci in an underwear ad. are they doing a season 2?????
