This series about modelling and living on South Beach in Miami is quite eye-opening. We follow the ups and downs of the models who work for the Irene Marie Model Agency, with the twin sisters Kelly and Sabrina, the handsome male models Sean, Vinci, Teddy, the girls Britt, Talesha and Tracie, who is considered too skinny and over-the -hill at age 25. Series consists of 10 half-hour episodes, with loads of eye candy and provocative modelling shoots and castings. Disc 3 is full of extras and special features. A very good and interesting series!

This set gives a true feeling for how difficult the world of modeling can be! Patience, organization, being able to take rejection, not getting a big head when u r overly praised, take everything said with a grain of truth (it may NOT be the truth), etc etc.
Some people are not cut out to be models, even if they have "the look" - 8th and Ocean points this out very clearly.
It's a fun series, esp for those who love the world of fashion n competition.

Take a dip in the "Ocean"

"I'm not a 15 year old girl, and i absolutely LOATHE Laguna Beach and its fakeness, but i really enjoyed the first season of 8th & Ocean. I think the reason i enjoy 8 is because the people on 8 have to make a living and make their own way in the world, while on laguna the kids are spoiled whiny ill behaved brats. SUMMARY, Good girl Britt joins the Irene Marie Modeling Agency in Miami and tries to advance her modeling career while hanging on to her morals. Britt moves in to an apartment shared with other models such as Tracie who at 24 is no longer the fresh face she used to be and whose opportunities are drying up. Also living in the models apartment are feuding twins Kelly and Sabrina, (whose parents must have been CHARLIES ANGELS fans), who have to deal with sibling jealousy and ups and downs of their cereers while being at each others throats, i mean if you can't trust your sister who can you trust. Irene also has to deal with super hot, super FLAKY male model Vinci who is super unreliable. So will Britt be able to keep her morals or fall prey to the sharks that are attracted to fresh meat? Tune in to see. EP"

"Great t.v show. On the trailer it showed a lot of clips missing that weren't aired, where are they? how come the whole cast isn't on the cover? Vinci is awesome, just misunderstood i love his interviews, love brianna and tracie. adrien did he ever get that role?"

"I got it on sale which made it even more awesome. I don't like the fact that all the ethnic people (Sorry Vinci you know how you're marketed sometimes even though your a hot puerto rican) are on the back and the white people are on the front. I'm white but I even noticed it before my friend did. You can barely tell it's 8th and ocean anyway cause the name is small or just blended to well.
What's gonna suck when you buy it is on the first disc you have the previews to freakin' laguna beach and the hills and you can't skip over it so it's like walk away for three minutes and come back. (hate you guys for that crap. first time great but IT SUCKS TO WATCH IT.)
The shows are great. I wish they'd had an extended show or a never before aired show. The dvd goes through really fast. Man this is such a great show.
Deleted scenes are QUICK. great but 2 QUICK!!!! The TRL appearance is on it, which I'm offended by b/c none of the people i watched the show for are on it. (No offense Brit, Twins, and Vinci)
The MTV overdrive is on it which is GREATTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!
The bios could have been better. I would have liked to see a resume or some pictures or somethin!!!
There's an audition section which is great!!!! Loved Talesha's the best. The twins started arguing again. Come on girls!!!
I always see TRacie on tv now and I love her I'm pissed she left the show. But I see her on everything. I saw Vinci in an underwear ad. are they doing a season 2?????"
