One Tree Hill

This show is so funny. I’m not even stoned tonight.

It’s like everyone’s reacting to completely different things than what’s happening in the scenes they’re in.

The whole thing is on Hulu for some reason and each season is like 48 hours long.

It was a guilty pleasure of mine. But, I hated how most of the characters forgave that piece of shit Dan for killing his brother.

Why do none of these teenagers have parents who live in town? I mean, most teenagers spend as little time with their parents as possible and figure out tricky ways of defying them without getting caught, but: Haley’s parents took off in an RV, Peyton’s dad spends most of his time on a boat, Brooke’s parents moved to California without her, I don’t know why Rachel’s parents don’t live with her but they don’t, we never even see Jake’s parents who are helping to take care of his baby. The only parents are Moira Kelly, Dan and Deb. This was a strange choice given that the friction between teens and their parents could have provided at least another hundred hours of show.

The actress who played Hailey (again, -sp?) largely disappeared, which is weird because she seems like the most natural of the cast, but apparently she had to waste a lot of energy escaping a cult. Has the guy who played Mouth ever worked again? Lafferty and Pepperoni Nips have both gotten fairly high profile gigs in the last year or so. I guess enough time has passed that being a CW actor doesn’t have the same stigma it once did. Hilarie Burton seems to be having a Canadian career (Lifetime/Hallmark movies). Did ‘Skills’ ever work again? Were any of the cast local hires?

R139 I always preferred The OC. It was a fun show and the writing seemed self-aware and tongue-in-cheek. It did drop the ball at different points but it still ended at the right time and didn't overstay it's welcome. I loved Seth Cohen being a geek and I loved Sandy Cohen and wish he was my dad. The characters felt more alive and acted like people I knew.

One Tree Hill just seemed so over-the-top dramatic, depressing and bleak. The dialogue felt more pretentious than Dawson's Creek. I'm from a small town and it is nothing like that.

The only other 2000s teen soaps I can stomach is Smallville which had a solid run and superhero lore, Degrassi and 7th Heaven which are so bad it's good that it had to be intentional.

I prefer The OC too. But Seth is just insufferable, along with Marissa. Although I wouldn't mind having the Cohens as parents either.

Not OP but I started rewatching the show on Hulu, first time in 15 years. I was the same age as the characters so the music takes me back. I just got to the post-high school time jump and 5 episodes in...I think I might be done.

The school shooting episode was so terrible, and yet they all probably thought it was so profound.

The OC was so much better because they actually felt like real characters. Sure the show dipped in quality but it was still watchable.

The later seasons of OTH are unwatchable.

Let's not forget DL fave Daphne Zuniga played Brooke's cunty mother.

I remember Nathan asking Peyton if she was on her period when she tried break up with him. She told him to get the hell out and not come back. Real Emmy dialogue there.

They really thought they were saying something.

I prefer the OC but i don't think the characters were realistic.

I loved her in that role.

I have never seen it but I know Chad Michael Murray was in it and I think he is beautiful. I think the only thing I've ever seen him in was House of Wax, which of course was terrible.

I have also never seen Jensen Ackles act in anything but I know he is a CW spawn and he is my favorite GIF face.
