  • 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 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. 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

    I wasn't as enamoured by this season as the last 4, however once you adjust to the 22 year olds behaving like 35 year olds it's still quite good. Nathan & Haleys son is a little too dominant in the storyline which in my opinion is unfortunate for the series because it leaves the Lukas & Payten drama as the 'catch' after Nathan's healing has taken place. The wheelchair & recovery needed far more time & the writers needed to do a bit of studying for this one. I should know, as I have actually had to learn how to walk again and I can tell you first-hand this was done very badly in the show and wasn't even close to realistic. As was the 'comeback'. Another thing this writer has had to actually live. Different arena; basketball vs dance but still there are interesting challenges along the way that the writers could have explored that would have been wonderful to see.

    One Tree Hill is about love, relationships, what family is and what it isn't. On this, the writers remained true.
