The O.C. - The Complete Third Season Review
The third season of The O.C. was a huge disappointment after the wildly successful first season and the pretty good second season. This year, the kids are seniors and college is on the horizon. Ryan romances a dull newcomer, acts like he's 40 years old, and has way too little screen time. Marissa, once the queen of Harbor School, goes to public school with some unsavory new friends. Summer and Seth spend most of their time bickering, as do Sandy and Kirsten. Only spunky Julie Cooper stays true to her character as she merrily copes with new-found poverty and an unexpected new love.
What made the show great in the beginning was seeing Ryan adjust to the Newpsies and the on-again, off-again romances of the "Core Four" and their parents. Sadly, this season that all took a back seat to tedious guest-star story arcs featuring unlikable and off-putting characters.
Even with all its shortcomings, though, this season is a must for OC fans and it does end in a surprisingly exciting finale. 3.5 stars.
The O.C. - The Complete Third Season Feature
The O.C. - The Complete Third Season Overview
Senior year. Prom. Graduation. College visits. Old friends. New problems. And plenty of Korean popstars. Ryan's savior complex becomes a recipe for disaster. Seth and Summer's relationship hits the rocks thanks to Seth's compulsion to edit the truth. As Kirsten attempts to put her life back together, Sandy assumes leadership of the Newport Group and finds himself the heir-apparent to Caleb Nichol's legacy of scandal. Marissa spirals out of control after little sis Kaitlin - a Julie Cooper in the making - returns home to stir the pot. And speaking of Julie Cooper, she's cast out of her Palace - into the slums of the OC.

The O.C. - The Complete Third Season Specifications
Welcome to the dark side. At the end of The O.C.'s second season, Marissa (Mischa Barton) shoots the troubled Trey to stop him from strangling his brother, Ryan (Ben McKenzie). She saves her boyfriend's life, but it leads to her expulsion from Harbor High--just as she was to begin her senior year. Meanwhile, Ryan's guardian, Kirsten (Kelly Rowan), is doing time in rehab. It won't be easy for her to stay dry with two-faced resident Charlotte (Jeri Ryan, Shark) making every attempt to take advantage of her vulnerability. Ever the hothead, Ryan recovers in time to punch out the mean new dean (Eric Mabius, Ugly Betty), who expels him next. So, Kirsten's husband, Sandy (Peter Gallagher), hires a tutor, while Marissa attends public school where she falls in with the surfing crowd, including the besotted Johnny (Ryan Donowho). Arguably, Marissa's newly widowed mother, Julie (Melinda Clarke), is hit hardest when she finds that husband Caleb (Kirsten's father) didn't leave behind as much money as expected. Then the mansion is repossessed, and wild child Kaitlin (Willa Holland) returns from boarding school. And that's just the beginning of Julie's woes.
By the finale, two of these people will be gone forever, but it wouldn't be The O.C. if there weren't some bright spots along the way. College-bound couple Seth (Adam Brody) and Summer (Rachel Bilson) are still full of quips, the Tracy Flick-like Taylor (Autumn Reeser), who plays a bigger role in the next season, is a welcome addition, and the soundtrack is jam-packed with material from the likes of MIA, Gang of Four, Sufjan Stevens, Lady Sovereign, and the Subways, who appear in "The Anger Management." Sadly, this would be the last full season of The O.C. as only 16 episodes were produced for the fourth and final year. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I recently saw a very brief report, the new security x-ray machines, which are carried out on all the major airports. This x-ray machines can see through a persons clothing, their naked bodies.
Is a violation of privacy, a bell ringing? Where are these X-rays will be sent? Who are the people see these pictures? Let's start with the guards at the airports to start.
The security people at the airports and the people that your baggage as you walk through the metal detectors, are employed by private security companies. I assume (though I probably am wrong) that the employer is a background check on people to rent to do it. Will only women view the female body? If children have their bodies exposed to foreign eyes? It is clear, children are not just for children's facilities. Are we creating new jobs for pedophiles? Voyeurs have a great day when they are hired to man these machines. If the consideration, these> Have naked bodies, a possibility that the selected images, such as young teenage girls or boys?
After these pictures of who ever considered, the images are recorded and to a main terminal? Where do they go from there? Will they be saved along with fingerprints and DNA? If private companies have access because it is these files are sent by Homeland Security? Or it is a special computer file of young nubile bodies by anyone that clearance has to be viewed. If Iremember correctly, have three employees of Homeland Security has already been arrested as a pedophile.
It is illegal to expose your body in public. Why does it then become legal force anyone to expose her body to strangers? It is illegal to look at people undressing or undressed without their permission. This is a gray area, because if someone does not give permission, is this person is not capable of an aircraft.
I do not know who thought of or approved these idioticIdea. I know when I travel within the continental United States, I will have to drive. If for some reason, I have to cross the oceans, I'll probably go with the boat. It's not that I have such a great body, but it is my body and I have to choose the right to see it.
How far will we allow our rights to be entered in the name of national security with his feet.
