30 Days of TV Meme: Day 12

So as I was reading through my blog archives, I noticed that I have a tendency to start a series of posts or memes and never finish. I end up abandoning them after a few weeks. Oops? 🙂

I started the 30 Days of TV Meme right around the time that we moved last summer and I inevitably got caught up with unpacking that I didn’t even get halfway. Let’s see if I can pick up where I left off and actually finish it this time.

Day 12 – An episode you’ve watched more than 5 times
I could take the easy way out and name a Dawson’s Creek episode since there are many that I’ve seen at least 5 times. But I thought I’d go with the series finale of another one of my beloved shows, The OC.

Thanks RAWR Caps!

The End’s Not Near, It’s Here isn’t a perfect episode but it’s hopeful. Which is exactly what I wanted for these characters I loved so much. The episode featured a mix of closure (Cohens moving to Berkeley, Julie choosing herself, Ryan and Seth heading to college, and Summer joining GEORGE) with flashes to the future (Julie graduating from college, Seth and Summer getting married, Ryan becoming an architect) and hints of what might be next for the characters (Ryan and Taylor!!!). When I feel nostalgic for the show, this is the episode I tend to watch — it’s such a satisfying goodbye.
