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

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Anyway... Guys kept teasing me about it, about how Nathan's dad was my dad, too. So I asked my mom, and she said he wasn't. But I get home, and I hear her crying in her room. I knew it was true. So I never went back. I told my mom it was because I didn't want to have to see his face. But, it was mostly because I didn't want her to have to.

One of the best drama series pilots ever made.
8 October 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This is pure perfection from start to finish. Something is happening all the time, and it gives us perfect impression on what's going to happen in the rest of the season/series. In an effective course of 40 minutes we get to know all the main characters (with the exception of Brooke, who we first see in episode 2) and the relationship they're having and not having with each other: Lucas and Nathan who hate each other based on what their parents did, the relationships they are having with their parents, Lucas' very special friendship with Haley and his crush on Peyton, whom Nathan is dating (though they both are pretty miserable), and much more.

The music choices were great and describing, the direction was top notch, and the acting was surprisingly good for a high school TV series. It's not many shows that's got me hooked from episode 1 - but One Tree Hill sure did. Without a doubt the best high school drama show in my opinion.
