R.I.P.


This is quite possibly the saddest day of the year. And I DO realize the year has just begun, but it doesn't change anything. Even if it was December, I would feel the same. I have tears in my eyes and a sniffle in my nose. I CANNOT. Believe. IT. The OC has been cancelled. I just read the official statement from Fox and tears welled in my eyes. How can I possibly say goodbye to Sandy & Kiki, Juju, Ryan, Seth, and Summer. They have been among my finest friends for the last 4 years. My reason for watching TV, albeit owning one. I feel as though we've just gotten to know each other quite well, and now we have to say goodbye. Sad. So sad.


It's like a funeral planned in advance. February 22nd. D Day. Dead day.
One can only speculate what the future will bring. Nothing better, I presume.

On a final note, I can only say I told you so. To Fox. To Josh Schwartz, creator of The OC. To everyone who thought Marisa was annoying and only talented at saying "Whatever..." and exiting the scene. I have cried about her death in every single episode this season. And I am not afraid to admit it, so long as it in small print. Makes it seem less absurd. It was inevitable that if Marisa died, the show would too suffer, it's own untimely death.

May it R.I.P. Rest. In. Pretty (people living the dream).

And may I, L.I.D. Live. In. Dvd's. At least I have all the seasons on DVD now, thanks to my brother in law.
Fare thee well, sweet friend. Fare well.

Yeah, ol' Schwartz might have bit himself in the butt. But, at least we can say that the show will go out in a blaze of four-year glory, and not be dragged-out like others that you are forced to quit watching because they get so watered-down. Like Lost. And probably soon-to-be Grey's.

I wish I could give you a big hug and tell you everything is going to be OK.

I feel your sadness Jamie.. I just heard the news this morning, and was probably as shocked as you. Although I didn't miss Misha Barton at all this season.. I did feel sad for Summer and the gang.. but if people stopped watching because "Marissa" wasn't on anymore---well then, thier loss on a great final season.

I'm so glad we can share this moment together. At least we have each other in these trying times.

BTW, I heard a rumor that the CW network may be interested in picking it up and trying to revive it. Not sure I could stoop to that level. Interesting...we shall see.

What is CW?

Methinks it is what used to be The Dubba Dubba WB.

Hi Jenny! Are you on Blogger now? Do you have a site?

TRAGEDY! I cannot believe we have Chrismukkah'd our last. I can honestly say I have never been sad about the cancellation of a television program before. Newport, we hardly knew you.

P.S. At least now we can look forward to planning the funeral party on Feb. 22!
