I just bought this dvd and I love it. I'm a guy and I absolutely love this show, along with the show The Hills. I can remember watching this show when it came out back in 2004 and it was one of if not my favorite show on tv. I know that a lot of people didn't like the show but I loved it. I think that I like the show so much because I feel like I grew up with them if that makes any sense lol. Lauren and Lo are my favorite, and for some strange reason I love Kristen as well lol. Overall, the show was and is one of my favorites because I can watch it over and over all the time and never get tired of it. My grandmother stays in Laguna Beach and I go visit her every year, and I can honestly say it's one of the most beautiful places on earth and every time I go, I always hope I will run into someone from the cast like Lauren. I would recommend this to anyone because in today's world, everyone always wants to be serious and watching it really takes you out of where you are and makes you feel like your there with them.
