I have dove into talking about One Tree Hill in another thread, but I decided this morning that I really need somewhere devoted entirely to my rants about this show. I am totally addicted to this show and its characters, but certainly doesn't mean that I don't have some things that make me want to scream out loud in my bedroom because it effects me that hard. First, I want to say that my comments here are definitely going to contain spoilers, so if you don't want any spoilers, then you might not want to read what I've got to say. I think One Tree Hill is an excellent show. It manages to incorporate a heart and realism that many soap operas don't ever really capture. There was someone here in one of these threads that favorably compared One Tree Hill as a more modern take on the Knots Landing concept, and that's certainly a solid comparison. The two shows are rather similar, mostly because of their ensemble cast setup, which makes it easier for the stories to move forward, and incorporate newer characters and write out those whose actors want to move on to other things.
