Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
The plot of "One Tree Hill" takes an unprecedented four-year jump forward in time for the show's fifth season. Some characters will be very familiar; others will be radically different. Some relationships will have become stronger; others will no longer exist. The powerful character stories will continue to progress, joined by new mysteries. What events have shaped the characters' lives during the interim?]]>
Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray), following a well-received first novel, is facing writer's block on his second effort. But he fills his days as the new head coach of his old high-school basketball team, the Ravens, aided by his old pal, Skills (Antwon Tanner). Meanwhile, Lucas' brother, Nathan (James Lafferty), is lost in a dark hole of despair after losing his dream of signing with an NBA team. Barely able to move his legs, Nathan is almost crippled in a bar fight and spends his days and nights boozing and raging around while wife Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) and young son Jamie (Jackson Brundage) try to survive his emotional torrents. Lucas is no longer with Peyton (Hilarie Burton), the latter having moved to Los Angeles to become a disgruntled assistant's assistant in a music recording company. Brooke (Sophia Bush), however, has hit the jackpot in New York as the celebrity founder of a designer clothes empire that has made her wealthy yet not quite free of her domineering mother (Daphne Zuniga). Everyone ends up back in Tree Hill, looking for roots and a future that involves support from one another. Friendship matters, but it doesn't inoculate this bunch from the pain of Peyton's ongoing love for Lucas (who is romantically involved with his pretty editor), or Brooke's emptiness after briefly fostering a child who then must leave her, or Nathan's slow crawl back from misery. In true One Tree Hill fashion, the characters' collective challenges come together in a critical mass during the season finale, ending with a very unusual cliffhanger involving four cell phones. --Tom Keogh

As a DVD reviewer once said: "High School Dramas are not made for high schoolers, they are made for the people that didn't have the high school experience they wanted." And "One Tree Hill" is the epoch of this discussion. And this is what makes the fifth season so special. After focusing on the groups High School years from seasons 1 thru 4, Season 5 fast-forwards the action 5 years, with all the kids living their own lives, much seperated (and grown up) from their 18-year-old alter-egos.
Whereas many believe the show would have out-right failed had season 5 progressed into the groups various freshman year of college experiences, it instead shines. The cast is allowed to play their own ages, and the viewers are able to see what happens when the real world comes into play. Every character has learned the harsh lessons that come with college and finally moving away from your parents/home town. The characters have finally learned how life can be without a security blanket. But alas I don't want to give away too much.Read more ›
The fifth season is also better than the fourth. The actors actually get to play character that resemble their own age group though James Lafferty still looks like a teenager. The overall performances of the cast explains why the show has been renewed for a sixth season and hopefully many more.
I actually really enjoyed this season. It was still probably my second to last favorite season (second season was my least favorite season) just because there was no more high school drama (which I enjoyed), only 18 episodes, and a lot of the characters only appeared a few times throughout the season (Karen, Rachel, Deb, Coach Durham, Chase, and Andy). Meeting the new characters in this season was great though, especially Jamie (Hayley and Nathan's four year old son). Some of the new characters this season are Lindsey Strauss (Lucas's editor and current love interest), Quinton (a member of the Tree Hill Ravens, coached by Skills, Lucas, and Nathan), Mia (a struggling music artist who is signed to Peyton's record label), "Nanny" Carrie (Jamie's nanny who takes an interest to Nathan that pushes Hayley over the edge), Owen (a bartender at Tric who takes an interest in Brooke), and Millicent (Brooke's assistant and Mouth's love interest) and a surprisingly good performance by Kevin Federline as a rude band member of Mia's band. As you can see, more than half of the cast this season were new members.
The season is set four years into the future and skips over the college years.Read more ›
Season 5 did not disappoint. I was so relieved that they didn't set the show during the college years, and make it so that all of the characters somehow went to the exact same college (in example, 90210) and instead chose to set it to four years later, while giving you flashbacks of things that happened in their college years.
And best of all, this season introduces you to extremely talented singer Kate Voegele.
All in all, this is a great season, and I can't wait till the DVDs are released!

Um, Keith died in season 3. I'm pretty sure that he won't be coming back to the show? And he is definitely dead. Are you talking about Dan Scott?

|Difference between season 5 dvds and original airing||
Saw your post. A lot of times it comes down to licensing. They may get the ok to use it for an episode, but then not for a manufactured product, which are the sets. I'm a fan of a lot of the WB shows and unfortunately this happpened with a lot of them when they came out on DVD. If they... Read More
