Season 1, Episode 17: "The Rivals" aka "Skadoosh" with Joey Takegami

 So. Fucking. Punchable.

So. Fucking. Punchable.

I'll let you in on a little secret - we record these episodes three at a time, several weeks ahead of time. So sometimes it's hard to remember what we talked about. That didn't happen this time, as we waxed philosophical about the demise of Zelda Scott Fitzgerald, an honorary bro, Tyler's plan to be bewitched by a Wiccan, and of course, "Skadoosh." We're again joined by Kinda Funny's very funny Joey Takegami.

Skadoosh.

Episode description from Hulu:
"Sandy and Jimmy buy a restaurant; Julie irks Kirsten by becoming the new model-home designer at the Newport Group; Seth is jealous of Summer's new boyfriend; Ryan is out to expose Oliver."

Season 1, Episode 16: "The Links" aka "Drunk Sandy" featuring Joey Takegami

 "Ew gross!" and then Good Guy Luke takes it in stride.

"Ew gross!" and then Good Guy Luke takes it in stride.

Oliver takes a turn for the outright sinister and so do the bros. Well all the bros except for our first guest bro, Kinda Funny's Joey Takegami. Finally this show gets a little credibility as we welcome an actual Orange County resident. Anyway, Sandy gets drunk and buys a restaurant or something while the teenagers go to Palm Springs unsupervised. Luke looks good in golf clothes.

(Completely inaccurate) episode description from Hulu:
"Seth finally chooses between Anna and Summer but does not know how to break the news; Ryan debates whether to help Oliver out of a sticky situation."

Season 1, Episode 15: "The Third Wheel" aka "ULTIMATE LUKE"

 Serenede me, sweet boy.

Serenede me, sweet boy.

Frankly there's a bunch of nonsense about trying to buy drugs, but this episode is (once again) about how awesome Luke is. Oh and Sandy Cohen's constant perversion of the legal system.

Season 1, Episode 14: "The Countdown" aka "Guess I'm Riding It"

Screenshot 2017-01-02 00.17.37.png

The bros kick off 2004 with a bang by going to a very polite swingers party where Tyler gets paired with a less attractive partner, but does the right thing. The boys also explore intimacy issues.

Episode description from Hulu:
"As the midnight hour approaches, Ryan endeavors to reach Marissa in time for their first kiss of the new year."

Season 1, Episode 13 "The Best Chrismukkah Ever" aka What's in Your Starter Pack?

 It has twice the resistance of any normal holiday.

It has twice the resistance of any normal holiday.

Christmas and Chanukah are totally happening and that means one thing: the Bro-C bros have reassembled to talk about Chrismukkah and kissing each other. And Christmas traditions. And what would be in their starter packs they give to two girlfriends. And Alex talks about the time he dressed up in Wonder Woman lingerie and took a business ethics class. Also Jon says some pretty offensive things and Tyler takes meticulous notes. And they're still making jokes about cuckolding. Oh and Luke found out his dad is gay last week so he took this episode off. Only 78 episodes to go...

Episode description from Hulu:
"Seth combines Christmas and Hanukkah to form his own holiday; Ryan worries that the holidays will once again lead to family fights and drinking."

Season 1, Episode 12 "The Secret" aka I got Doxxed by Seth Cohen

 Well actually it's about ethics in games journalism.

Well actually it's about ethics in games journalism.

We told you. We freaking told you. We told you Luke is awesome and actually has an interesting story arc. The producers of The OC handle some sensitive subject matter with surprising sensitivity. Which is more than we can say for Alex, Jon, and Tyler, who spend the better part of an hour ragging on a (hopefully) long forgotten internet hate campaign while making cuckolding jokes. 

Episode description from Hulu:
"Seth struggles to make up for the way he acted over the holidays; Ryan and Luke become partners for a history project."

Season 1, Episode 11 "Homecoming" aka American Cheese Melted in my Ramen

 As far as chop shop owners go, this guys seems pretty trustworthy.

As far as chop shop owners go, this guys seems pretty trustworthy.

This week on the Bro-C, the bros discuss if their show is actually just a super long episode of H-Bomb and Friends and/or just the dumbest joke gone awry. We also go off on a tangent where Jon shows the other bros how to lifehack ramen. Meanwhile, in Orange County, the A plot sees Ryan & Marissa stealing a car (has he learned nothing from the Cohens?) and the B plot has #GamerGate organizer, Seth, miraculously juggling two women at Thanksgiving dinner. The B, C, and D plots feature adults. The E plot of Kirsten getting wasted is really worth the price of admission.

Episode 10 - Season 1, Episode 10 "The Perfect Couple" aka The Chip Saunders Philosophy Hour

 Icky

Icky

This week, we bro out with the bros on The Bro-C… or do we? Which love triangle do the bros best mimic? Is it Kirsten-Sandy-Rachel? Seth-Summer-Anna? Jimmy-Julie-Caleb? Nope, no love triangle, only a love rectangle with the boys and Chip. Anyway, the ocean is like, super vast and endless, man.

What is life?

Episode 9 - Season 1, Episode 9 "The Heights"

 I am just green with jealous rage.

I am just green with jealous rage.

This episode is all about Anna, I think. Actually, we record these up to two weeks in advance and I'm pretty sure it's all about Anna. Oh! It's also about paying tribute to (and kind of ripping off) The Karate Kid and some really dumb misunderstandings. And Anna. Did we mention Anna? She's in this episode a lot.

 We finally meet Captain Oats.

We finally meet Captain Oats.

The Summer's over and it's time to go back to school. OR go to rehab. The kids hatch a terrible plan, Ryan skips out on an important test, and Marissa's parents continue to be terrible. On the upside, Luke again redeems himself.

Episode description from Hulu:

 Yeah, it's THAT episode.

Yeah, it's THAT episode.

Summer's step-mom dispatches her step-daughter to retrieve opiates and barbiturates from Mexico, Seth skips Comic-Con, the bros defend Hostess Ding Dongs and Marissa drinks to forget. In the B and C plots, Sandy get's a new job and Jimmy Cooper continues to be an absolute shitbag.

Episode 6 - Season 1, Episode 6 "The Girlfriend"

 She may not be your guys' grandma, but she is an adult who probably shouldn't put sexual advances on teenagers.

She may not be your guys' grandma, but she is an adult who probably shouldn't put sexual advances on teenagers.

Things get weird as we discuss hooking up with Hot Pseudo-Grandma-Adjace and how Ryan mysteriously sensed a disturbance in the force which was actually Luke and Marissa confirming their love for one another by making "the beast with two backs." Frankly I gross myself out. Anyway, Summer also kisses Seth and the bros wade through some technical difficulties to bring you our longest episode yet! BEST VALUE!

Whoops, "Scared Guy Luke" didn't see this one coming.

After taking a look at the top films and news stories from this week in 2003, we take a deep dive into this week's episode, which again has two meanings! Ryan gets a part-time job, has a date with Marissa,  and then someone gets shot. But we go to more crazy parties and eat beautiful grilled cheese sandwiches, so it's all good!

Episode description from Hulu:
"Seth is eager to attend a party in Ryan's old neighborhood; Ryan finally works up the courage to ask Marissa out on a date."

Episode 4 - Season 1, Episode 4 "The Debut"

 This must be what Seth meant by "a life of insecurity and paralyzing self-doubt."

This must be what Seth meant by "a life of insecurity and paralyzing self-doubt."

Shit really hits the fan as Alex is welcomed into the family with open arms while Tyler makes his debut into central Pennsylvania society. Unfortunately, Jon has been running a less-than-optimal Ponzi scheme and the whole party comes to a crushing halt. Speaking of crushes, the bros discuss who their "O.C." crushes are and it's purely coincidental that we met Anna this week.

Welcome back to the Bro-C, bitch! I meant bitch in an affectionate way! Hey where are you going? Anyway, our intrepid bros return this week to discus some The O.C. social justice news before dissecting this week's episode, "The Model Home." I think the title has like a double or triple meaning.

 "Whoever you want me to be"

"Whoever you want me to be"

Welcome to the Bro-C, friends! Can you believe it's been thirteen years (to the day) since The O.C. premiered on FOX? What better way to celebrate this cultural milestone than by joining bros Jon, Alex, and Tyler for the inaugural episode of The O.C. rewatch podcast by bros, for everyone. In this episode we go over our personal backgrounds with The O.C. and reminisce about where we were with our lives when the show premiered in August of 2003, before recapping and reacting to the pilot episode.
