What's up with the spam lately? I've had to delete three four comments in the last twelve hours, which is about as bad as it's ever been here on LJ. Is November the official spam month or something? Things got so bad a while back that I started setting up rules for posting comments, with captcha for non-members, and then so that no non-members could post at all, but it's still not keeping the irritants away. I am not interested in amazing work opportunities. I am not interested in your fascinating You Tube videos about Greek political conspiracies. I am not interested in anything that you happen to be selling. Just. Go. Away.

On a more cheerful note, I'm rewatching season one of The OC, and I'd forgotten how much fun it is. Season two was bad, and three was worse, and I didn't bother watching four. Season one is really, really good, though. I'm eight episodes in, and I'm wishing Marissa would die already, and I would quite like to punch Julie's head in, if that doesn't sound too unpleasant (in all fairness you're supposed to hate Julie, so that's okay). Sandy and Seth are awesome. I can't believe how long ago it all was. 2003?! That's nearly ten years. Horribly nearly. Anyway, the gang just got back from Tijuana, and have "rescued" Marissa from a stay in a clinic that probably would have done her the world of good. Instead of help, support and therapy she's going to be allowed to drink herself into oblivion; which is a fate that she roundly deserves, I'll admit, but boy does she have some spectacularly misled friends. Still to come are drugs, alcohol, sailing and splendid geekery. And Chrismukkah, which should be a proper holiday. For one, glorious year this truly was an inspired show. It's a shame that it went downhill so fast, but I'll just pretend that they only ever made the one season. That technically means that Marissa's death never happens, but it's a sacrifice that I'm prepared to make.

It's not natural to be that hostile towards a sixteen year old girl, is it. Do I get special dispensation for her really deserving it? Presumably not. But never mind.

Here, have some opening titles:


Look at them, all old-fashioned and 4:3. They haven't made TV that shape in years.

I'm having spam, eggs, beans and spam, that's not got much spam in it
I think spam is just designed to annoy people and is not real adverts at all, but that's just me. I don't post publicly on LJ tho I do sometimes on DW.

I just deleted some spam on my LJ today too. So aggravating when you think someone genuinely took the time to comment on something. Just to show you how inept I am, I was thinking, oh, The O.C, I never saw it, I don't really watch Medical dramas. LOL. But now I see it's a show about rich teens, even worse for me!

Are you thinking of the OR that they often reference in "ER"?!

OC stands for Orange County in this instance, and yes, it's about rich kids, sort of. And other things. It was huge a few years back, though only briefly. I should probably long have outgrown teen dramas, but I got really into it!

Yes, I was thinking of the OR. lol. I'm not against all things teen, but even as a teen I couldn't get into most of those shows.
