Thursday Movie Picks: High School (TV)

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. For every last Thursday of the month, the theme shifts from film to television, with this month being about high school in television. While I don't watch shows set in a high school now, I did watch a bunch of them before. Here are my picks for the week.

The OC - My favorite season of this show is its last season, when Misha Barton left the show. While it did get axed partly due to her departure, this was a pretty good season. There wasn't so much drama, especially between Ryan and Marissa. Taylor, who was portrayed as someone 'evil' was pretty decent, and I was shipping Ryan and Taylor hard. I thought it did end well and gave its characters closure. This was also the only season that I completed; I only watched bits and pieces from the first three seasons. 

Dawson's Creek - I felt bad for Jen Lindley in all aspects (as a character and her storyline). While she was still included in the narrative for the first two seasons, she was eventually shifted to the subplot as the show focused more on the triangle between Dawson, Joey, and Pacey. She wasn't given character development, and I hate how the show pitted her against Joey and their relationship never got any redemption. I only got until season 4 for this, but still #TeamPacey.

Veronica Mars - My theme within the theme for this week are shows I never finished. I've only completed the first season and got too busy to watch the latter seasons that I forgot about them. I did like this show; Kristen Bell played Veronica perfectly.

  1. I never watched these shows all the way through either. I only saw a few episodes of each. I felt like the only person that didn't watch Dawson's Creek when that was on.

    1. I didn't watch any of the shows when they were running either. I was too young to understand what was going on with Dawson's Creek back then. I found The OC to be too dramatic for me, so I only watched the 4th season.

  2. Three shows after my time. I graduated in 1990 and never really had much desire to watch high-school shows that came out after then. You're making me feel old!

    1. I don't think I've ever finished a show set in high school. Not even Freaks and Geeks, and that's only one season.

  4. Totally forgot about Dawson's Creek! Remembered loving Pacy but that's about it..

    Missed the last season of The O.C, got fed up with the 3rd to be honest...

    Loved Veronica - came to the Mars party last after obsessively watching it one summer.

    1. Veronica Mars is a good show, but I wasn't a fan of the movie.

  5. I like Dawson's Creek, well what I saw of it, because it aired very late here, meaning a few seasons behind the US premiere, with odd timing so I only got to see a few episodes from season one.
