  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
It's time to say goodbye to The O.C. characters of Newport in this final Season 4 of the hit television show. With Marissa (Mischa Barton) gone, life after high school is somewhat of a challenge for Ryan (McKenzie), Seth (Brody), and Summer (Bilson). But with parents like Sandy (Gallagher) and Kirsten Cohen (Rowan) to keep them in line, it's almost a sure-fire guarantee that there will be a happily ever- after. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD looks good, with vibrant colors, adequately deep blacks, and good shadow delineation. Details can occasionally look soft, and fleshtones are often are too red. Contrast is generally nicely balanced. The picture is enjoyable, but not perfect. (Danny Richelieu)
