Storyline

Nathan Scott is the star of 'the Ravens' high school basketball team, just like his proud father, Dan Scott - but get's pushed even harder by his dad than the team's coach. When the team celebrates a victory by 'borrowing' a school bus arrests are made; Dan manages to get Nathan out of trouble. Unfortunately others are less lucky and the team needs new players, so the coach invites Nathan's half-brother Lucas Scott, who only plays informal basketball his passion being reading. When he also seems to get on with Nathan's steady girlfriend Peyton, the star dares him to a one-to-one for high stakes. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Karen Roe: So, I got something for you, Lucas.
Haley James: Actually, I found it. Not that I was looking for something specifically, which implies some hideous sort of "Joey loves Dawson" scenario and completely creep me out, but, you know, we saw it, and... Well, give him the book!
[Lucas open up the gift]
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Wow. "Julius Caesar."
Karen Roe: "There's a tide in the affairs of men", or something like that.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Nice. Thank you, guys. Thank you very much.
Haley James: Whatever. That's what you're into.

Greatest Show Ever - It's as simple as that
17 November 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One Tree Hill has redefined the name ''television series''. Easily the most well written series ever, with amazing actors and a great combination of humor, romance, action, and suspense. The pilot really gives you the feeling that this show has something special, and is running with it, running long and hard. OTH has the best music with amazing bands, that sometimes no ones ever even heard of before, but yet, they are still amazing. Take Gavin Degraw for example. He didn't have many sales for his album, but the second one tree hill made his hit song ''I don't wanna be'' the theme song, his sales sky rocketed. One tree hill has been strong for 6 seasons, and hopefully there's much more to come. The material is still fresh and Mark Schwan is the greatest television creator living today. The pilot episode started something that didn't seem to go anywhere at first, but keeps growing as it continues on. 10/10 to Mark Schwan, the actors, the writers, the directors and everyone else involved with One Tree Hill.
