One Tree Hill: The Complete First Season marks the beginning of a genuinely engrossing series that maintains, for a long while, an unusual focus on a single, powerful conflict defining the destinies of two characters. Adolescent half-brothers Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) and Nathan (James Lafferty) Scott have lived parallel lives in One Tree, North Carolina. They share a common father, Dan Scott (Paul Johansson), who has disregarded the existence of Lucas, his son by a one-time flame, Karen (Moira Kelly), whom he dumped years before to accept a basketball scholarship to college. While neglecting Lucas, Dan--whose hoop dreams never materialized--has spent his time almost perversely micro-managing every one of Nathan's moves on and off the court at his old high school, where the lad is currently an arrogant superstar under gruff-but-wise coach Whitey Durham (Barry Corbin). Nathan (whose mother is separated from Dan) is a child of privilege and has been raised to disregard teamwork, compromise, or the feelings of others. He regards Lucas, a basketball sensation on neighborhood playgrounds, as trash, and his own girlfriend, Peyton (Hilarie Burton), as a pretty bauble he can abuse and dismiss at will. Still, he's sympathetic; one can see glimpses of the human being struggling to emerge from under Dan's control.
Meanwhile, Lucas helps Karen run her café, hangs out with platonic best friend Haley (Bethany Joy Lenz), and pines for Peyton (herself a punky misfit at heart). He also turns to surrogate dad Keith Scott (Craig Sheffer)--actually his uncle and Dan's older brother--for support, and sees himself as a perpetual and doomed outsider in One Tree. All that changes when Whitey invites Lucas to join the b-ball team that Nathan dominates, a move that challenges the status quo of multiple relationships in a small community. For about a third of its episodes, this series from creator Mark Schwahn (who wrote the hit film Coach Carter) stays true to the suspense surrounding Lucas's and Nathan's changes in fortune. Then a bit of padding follows to the end of the season; there are 22 episodes to fill out, after all. But even as various distractions (a kidnapping subplot, a car accident and coma for a major character) and random events creep in (Dan, rather incredibly, takes over the team from Whitey at one point, thus coaching both his sons), One Tree Hill remains highly watchable. The writing is shaped well and organic, while performances are consistently excellent. (It's especially good to see Sheffer, perhaps best known for A River Runs Through It, again.) --Tom Keogh

The DVDs: Visually, the quality of the show significantly increases as you get further into the season, not sure why that it, but I definitely noticed a change.
Special Features: They're really cool; tons of deleted scenes, commentaries (with the creator & actors) & behind the scenes features.
Overall: "One Tree Hill" has a huge variety of music & interesting storylines, which I personally find better than the average 'teen drama' show.
My mother on the hand, adores the cast and the plots and what-have-you. She sounds like a teenage girl whenever she reviews it. When I gave her the DVD as a present, she did a dance. Then she snatched it out of my hand, slammed the door in my face and watched it. Okay, I'm exaggerating, but that's the gist. I'll have to get the rest of the seasons.
All I can say for those who are thinking of buying it is that you should. I mean this series, especially the first season never gets old. I don't know how many times I have watched episodes over and over again because they have grabbed my attention like no other series has. And that's the thing about One Tree Hill: the first season that all the characters grow up like normal human beings should.
So if you are ready to cry with the characters, scream in frustration for their lack of thinking, and laugh when they do, then this is the series for you. Just beware, once you buy the first season you won't be able to stop once its over and you will find the need to buy the second season and the third and so on.
