In a way I am torn about the decision to not have a season four. I really enjoyed the first two seasons. I bought both on DVD. The first season the kids were more grounded and I enjoyed watching themfigure out what they wanted from life. I loved Lo and really missed her the second year. With Christina/Morgan/Trey/Dieter we got to see kids with real goals and seriousplans for their futures. It was a nice balance to the LC-Stephen-Kristen triangle.
The second season brought Kristen to the front with all her cattiness and drama and she ruled! No matter what she was doing she was fun to watch. The train wreck of relationships were fun to watch as well. Even though I wanted to reach through my TV and smack Jessica every other scene.
The third season I watched just for a chance to see any of my beloved former cat members and all I got was Jessica and teases of Alex, Alex and Taylor. A terible cast with nothing exciting or interesting going on in their lives killed this season. Too little of Chase imo. The girls were boring and unattractive, and so were most of the guys. The drama seemed forced and fake.
Season four would have needed a total makeover, so while I will miss it, I can live without it. Bye-bye Laguna.
