In The OC, they watch The Valley. But what do they watch in The Valley? My theory is they just watch Peter Gallagher talk to teenagers in need of his assistance, every week a different teen.Maybe they call it The Bronx or The Beach if he’s surfing while he speaks. He’s world-wise, hip to all these Newpsie antics, and oddly wrapped up in tiny details: the DA’s tee times, the recipe for his mother’s meatloaf, deep cuts
Probably the defining teen show of my teenage years. I wanted to be just as rebellious as Ryan Atwood and to be in love with a Marissa Cooper. Like most TV series, it should have ended a lot sooner then it did but for the first few seasons it was a blast. It also helped popularized a bunch of really good independent artists trough its terrific soundtrack.
