We all used to love The OC. We fancied Ryan Atwood and adored Seth Cohen, we could never decide who was hotter between Marissa and Summer, we laughed uproariously at Julie Cooper's sarcastic barbs and Sandy Cohen's amiable wit. We secretly thought Kirsten was a bit of a MILF.

Not to mention how we drooled over the prime real estate, wished we lived near to the beach, and got extremely jealous whenever every good band ever played a gig at The Bait Shop.

Here are all the things we learned, thanks to Orange County, California, and Mr. Josh Schwartz.
