I used to absolutely love one tree hill, I mean the type of love where every time you meet someone called Lucas, Nathan, Brooke, Haley, Peyton (ok, maybe not so much), you can’t help but think of the characters. And every time you hear a song from the show you are brought back to the exact scene it played. The whole drama was real, the characters interesting, yet relateable, but somehow its all gone down since there.
Seasons 1-4 are classic, and in my mind it will be very hard for another teen drama to beat that. Season 5 was when all the teenagers were all grown up, 4 years later and something about it just wasn’t the same. I still love season 5 but it did slowly start to get worse from here. Now, in its seventh season, and without Lucas and Peyton- the destined-to-be-together highschool sweethearts, the show just isn’t the same. All the drama has gone down hill, resorting to cliched story lines and the original spunk of the show has pretty much gone out the window.
