The OC – Hulu
A brooding blonde (Benjamin Mackenzie, pre-Gotham
) with a penchant for tank tops and trouble leaves his life of poverty in Chino behind to move into the glamorous Orange County home of his attorney (Peter Gallagher, recently seen on New Girl
). There, he befriends his comic-book loving, sarcastic social-outcast son Seth (Adam Brody, the original nerdy heartthrob), their troubled but beautiful neighbor Marissa (Mischa Barton), and her bubbly best friend Summer (Rachel Bilson).
- Watch for the beautiful scenery, the teenage drama, and the incredible Indie music soundtrack (the show is credited with bringing Death Cab for Cutie to the mainstream) – plus catch plenty of big-actors in their first roles (Chris Pratt, Vampire Diaries Paul Wesley, Nikki Reed, Arrow’s Willa Holland)
