  • Summary: Set in the fictional small town of Tree Hill, NC, this teen-driven drama tells the story of two half brothers, who share a last name and nothing else. Brooding, blue-collar Lucas is a talented street-side basketball player, but his skills are appreciated only by his friends at the riverSet in the fictional small town of Tree Hill, NC, this teen-driven drama tells the story of two half brothers, who share a last name and nothing else. Brooding, blue-collar Lucas is a talented street-side basketball player, but his skills are appreciated only by his friends at the river court. Popular, affluent Nathan basks in the hero-worship of the town, as the star of his high school team. And both boys are the son of former college ball player, Dan Scott, whose long ago choice to abandon Lucas and his mother Karen, will haunt him long into his life with wife Deb, and their son Nathan. Until now, Dan has managed to keep his two sons far from each other. But the past and present collide sharply when Tree Hill's basketball coach recruits Lucas for his team, much to the chagrin of Nathan and Daddy Dan. And the siblings natural rivalry only intensifies when they set their sights on the same girl, Peyton Sawyer. The residue of the past lingers far into the future for the residents of Tree Hill, even as a new generation is rising. Tree Hill follows the lives and loves of these two brothers, their friends and their family as they navigate high school, marriage, and finally... adulthood. One Tree Hill theme song:
    I don't want to be by Gavin DeGraw

    I don't want to be
    Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
    All I have to do
    Is think of me and I have peace of mind
    I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
    Wondering what I've got to do
    Or who I'm supposed to be
    I don't want to be anything other than me

    From season 1 to season 4 the show has been grade, because it had a direction, and it followed it with strenght and memorable moments. AfterFrom season 1 to season 4 the show has been grade, because it had a direction, and it followed it with strenght and memorable moments. After the pause, the seasons 5 and 6 were good as well. Not as good, but at least they didn't lose grip in respect to the first 4. It's not usual to see the character you liked so many years later in a show, and that was the plus point. But then, after the season 6, all the good that had been done was ruined with two useless seasons, with new characters, too much sentimental. The last season was not the worst, but well...who cares after the mess made in the previous two? Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. If you expected to see a coming of age story that has quite a bit of realism, you're not going to get it. This season takes us to murder plots, attempts that fail, and actual murder, point shaving brought about by threats by an illegal gambling syndicate, frightening violent stalkers, a problem pregnancy that could kill the mother, a teachers sleeping with a teenager, an 18 year old pregnancy but it's ok she was married prior to getting pregnant (lol) and a son who finds out his father is a murderer. Personally, I like that this is nothing like real life & real teenage dramas. It makes the show interesting & action packed. It really makes it a fantasy-drama. There are some coming-of-age-plots like losing virginity, how best friends deal with betrayal & cheating, prom & graduation. Cool. It's nice to have that interwoven with the fantasy-drama. One Tree Hill makes for interesting viewing, enough realism to get into it & enough unrealistic plot-lines to create drama & suspense. Expand
