'The OC's Seth Cohen Just Gets Us

There are a lot of great TV heartthrobs out there, but absolutely no one can compare to what Adam Brody's memorable portrayal of The OC 's Seth Cohen. I mean, who didn't immediately fall in love with this character? From the creation of Chrismukkah to his occasional one-on-one chats with Captain Oats, this guy managed to worm his way into our hearts in the best way possible. Sure, Ryan Atwood had that whole sexy, broody thing going for him, but I think we can all agree that when it comes to irresistible nerds, Seth Cohen reigns supreme. And, let's face it, we've all found ourselves relating to him on more than one occasion.

Granted, I don't know what it's like to live in a luxurious mansion nor do I spend my summers lounging around in my own private infinity pool (though it's not for a lack of trying). However, I've still managed to develop a strong kinship with Brody's character that stems far beyond the reaches of our blatantly different lifestyles. And I'm definitely not the only one. This comic book loving geek has said some pretty hilarious things throughout the show's four-season run, but those sarcastic sentiments have also been extremely relatable. So much so that you can use many of his reactions in your everyday life. Observe…
