Still excellent after all these years
on September 13, 2011
I don't agree that the show has gone into a "just sex" mode - there was definitely a lot more when the main characters were in high school. I agree that Haley & Nathen are so fantastic together, but I like to see Nathen fully grown up & going to college. They will always be a totally solid couple. I DO miss the other characters & wish we could see more (or any) of them! Karen! But I guess when an actor wants to leave there is not much the show can do about it. I am glad that through all the heartbreak, Brooke finally found her joy & don't begrudge her her "time in the sun". I love to see stories with Jamie too - it sets the scene for the "next generation" - I would like to fast forward & see him playing a Raven's sport. That last scene with him dribbling the basketball over the bridge was so reminiscent of his uncle that I wanted to cry - it was perfect. I'd like to see him in high school dating Madison while his Mom run's Karen's. I do miss Lucas & Peyton, but I don't think (from what I hear & I could be wrong) that CMM is a very nice guy. I do think season #8 was their last season, but I'll watch as long as they're on.
