oc 414

Currently watching the Grammys because JUSTIN WILL BE PERFORMING. Yay!

I can’t believe there’s only 2 more episodes of The OC left before it’s OVER. This season has been so great compared to the last two and I’m so sad to see it go. *sob* I’m especially sad that I won’t be able to see anymore of Ryan and Taylor’s story. I never thought about the pairing prior to this season (I can’t help it — I loved Marissa) so I was pleasantly surprised when the show brought them together and I fell in love. They’re so different (Taylor’s overwhelming while Ryan’s passive) yet they just work. And I don’t know that I’ve ever seen Ryan so happy before. The way he looked at Taylor when he said “I love you” in the last episode was absolutely swoon-worthy. Actually, they had a ton of great scenes in The Shake-Up:

— After getting drunk, Taylor says she’s going to sleep and Ryan knows she’s pretending… “Are you pretending to go to sleep thinking I’ll tell you I love you while you’re unconscious?” HEE! *Such* a Taylor thing to do.
— Before Ryan says “I love you,” he sweeps her bangs to the side while looking at her adoringly. GUH. THIS KILLED ME DEAD.
— At the end of the episode (but before the earthquake!!!), Ryan says it again… “I love you… and I don’t want to lose you. So let’s put it all on the table. Berkeley, Paris, Oxford… anything.”

LOVE THEM. Ben McKenzie and Autumn Reeser have great chemistry together.

I should also mention that Willa Holland has totally impressed me this season. I didn’t like Kaitlin at all last season. She had a bad attitude and misbehaved simply because she wanted to get a reaction from those around her. But this season, the writers have really given her layers and Willa’s done a great job of portraying Kaitlin as manipulative (clown porn!) yet caring (all her scenes with the Bullit) and vulnerable (her short-lived relationship with Chris Brown). So I’ve definitely warmed up to the character but in the last episode, when she was yelling at Julie and said “In the last year we lost Dad, Marissa, Dr. Neil…,” that’s when I finally understood her and loved her for it.

Oh, The OC, I’m going to miss you so.

Well, I’ve finally caught up with all 13 episodes of Brothers and Sisters. Just in time to catch Emily VanCamp’s episode next week. I really love this show. From Justin’s rebelliousness, to Kevin’s secret relationship with Chad, and to Nora’s general wackiness… it’s all great. I can’t wait to see how EVC’s character, Rebecca, interacts with the rest of the Walker clan.

A few Grammy comments…
John Mayer, cut your hair, please. Thanks.
I find T.I. kinda hot. Is that weird?
Robyn Troup is SO DAMN LUCKY. I want to HUG Justin too. 😀
Squee! For the shot of Adrian Pasdar as the Dixie Chicks won Album of the Year.
That’s all I’ve got.
