WE'LL MISS: JULIE COOPER NICHOL
Julie Cooper started off as a one-note, man-eating vixen but by the end of The O.C.'s run, darned if we weren't rooting for the one-time trailer park resident to find real happiness.
WE'LL MISS: THE COHENS
It's hard to find a more likeable husband-wife on TV than Kirsten and Sandy Cohen on The O.C. From Sandy's advice to Kirsten's 'cooking' we found ourselves wishing we too could be a part of the Cohen brood.
WE'LL MISS: SETH AND SUMMER'S ROMANCE
The core relationship on The O.C. was the romance between popular girl Summer and comic-book geek Seth. When Summer finally caved to Seth's schoolboy crush it became obvious they were always meant to be. Just like Captain Oates and Princess Sparkle!
WE'LL MISS: CHRISMUKKAH
It's all about the Chrismukkah! Only on The O.C. will you see a holiday that celebrates the best of Christmas and Hanukkah in a perfect blend that even incorporates Santa yarmulkes.
WE'LL MISS: MINI-COOP
Marissa's younger sister Kaitlin Cooper brought some much needed attitude and youth to The O.C. after the tragic death of her older sister. 'Mini-Coop' was always cooking up schemes, but deep down she just wanted to be loved by her family.
