Before Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars ever graced the airwaves, teen-centric television was ruled by one show: The O.C. If you watched the Fox drama, you know why it rocked. Sure, Newport Beach had gorgeous scenery and even more gorgeous people, but what kept fans intrigued wasn't the aesthetic of the show, but the characters within it. And as much as I adored Ryan, Summer, and Marissa (OK, I mostly tolerated Marissa... RIP) there was one member of the pack that was the ultimate O.C. standout: Seth Cohen. The wise-cracking, self-proclaimed "ironist" and bagel fanatic won our hearts from his first awkward ramble, but it didn't hurt that he also looked like Adam Brody, the guy who embodied "adorkable" before Jessica Day was even a thing.

Though The O.C. ended in 2007, Seth Cohen is certainly not gone: He lives in the body of Adam Brody, who seems a whole lot like his TV counterpart. Here are the most Seth Cohen shots of Adam Brody. Welcome back to the O.C., bitch.
