Following the travails of a set of wealthy families in the harbor-front community of Orange County, California, The O.C. has become an instant success that goes beyond the Tiger Beat crowd. Audiences recognize and appreciate its witty dialogue and self-awareness, but trying to discuss the merits of a teen drama from the same network that aired Beverly Hills 90210 has left mature viewers blue in the face. Alan Sepinwall's Stop Being a Hater and Learn to Love The O.C. is a support group of a solution, and a fun look at this television phenomenon for fans of all ages.
