Storyline

This series follows the eventful lives of some high-school kids in Tree Hill, a small but not too quiet town in North Carolina, where the greatest source of pride is the high school basketball team, the Ravens, since living memory coached by old Whitey Durham. Its greatest talent ever was Dan Scott, who now runs a successful car dealership. The present talents are his two sons, Nathan Scott, a beautiful and popular athlete, the absolute star, who was molded and stifled by his proud dad, ambitious Dan Scott, who pushes him harder then even the coach approves of, but rather neglected by his spoiled, impulsive mother Deb, an alcoholic, and Lucas, abandoned at birth with his devoted mother, hard-working café-owner Karen Roe, who grew up with Dan's older but poor brother Keith as substitute father as a social reject, only playing hoops on a public yard in the park with street-kids, his passion being reading; when an incident forces the coach to replace suspended players, Lucas soon proves ...

Trivia

When Jamie was first written into the show, a lot of his scenes were dictated by what Jackson Brundage wanted to do. He would tell Mark Schwahn he wanted to eat ice cream, and in nearly every scene, he'd be eating ice cream. Then, he'd want to play with Antwon Tanner, who played Antwon "Skills" Taylor, so Schwahn wrote storylines for them. See more »

Goofs

Peyton's full name (as seen mentioned many times) is Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer. Peyton says to Haley at one point that Brooke has been calling her "Peyton Marie Sawyer" because of the way she was acting. Peyton then explains that the initials spell PMS revealing that it's just a joke between her and Brooke. Therefore, Peyton's middle name does not change at any time in the series. See more »

Should have ended with season 7
19 January 2012 | by Melissa_1982See all my reviews

This show started out really well, and got better with each season. It was one of my favorite shows. Until season 8. From season 8 and on, I've been embarrassed to admit that I still watch this show.

The characters Chase, Quinn, Clay and Alice are pointless. I have no interest in any of their stories. I miss the core OTH group and the relationships between them. That group of friends gave the show its heart and soul. There are so many new characters on this show that it lost its intimacy and charming nature. The show now seems shallow and dull.

Also, to the writers - please stop using the phrases "you know that" and "you goof," as in "I love you, you know that" and boyfriends/girlfriends referring to each other as "you goof". It's no longer cute, and it is bordering somewhere between extremely annoying and downright obnoxious. I cringe every single time I hear these phrases.

I gave this show a 7, which would have been a 10 if it had ended with season 7... and would have been a 2 if it had started with season 8.

UPDATE: Season 9 makes up for the crappiness of season 8. Stick it out. You wont regret it. I'm raising my rating to an 8.
