Aside from basketball, Nathan Scott (James Lafferty) and Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray) have little in common -- but the two young men share the same father, Dan (Paul Johansson). Arrogant, wealthy and assured, Nathan is the star of the high school basketball team. Quiet and driven, Lucas is a legendary player on the playground and the product of a working single mom, Karen (Moira Kelly). After growing up in opposite worlds in the same small town, the half-brothers find their lives colliding. In the middle of the crossroads is Peyton (Hilarie Burton), Nathan's beautiful girlfriend who may have more in common with Lucas, and Lucas' platonic best friend, Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti). Sophia Bush also stars as Brooke.]]>
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 show is about two brothers who grew up in the small town of tree hill and yet they barely know each other. Luke, who along with his mother was abandoned by his father before he was born, is the outsider; while Nate, who his father considers to be his only son, grew up to become one of the popular kids in school. But when Luke join's Nate's Basketball team, the two brothers beging to breakdown the years of walls their father has put between them.
Warner Brother's has put together a really nice set, releasing it a little earlier than usual (they usually wait til at least the third season of a show to release the first on DVD). The Set comes packaged the same was as all of Warner Brother's other WB sets (bookstyle packaging). The Special Featuresing include Commentary on 4 episodes, A Making-of Documentary, a Behind-the-Scenes Featurette, a Music Video, Gag Reel, and 48 Minutes of Deleted Scenes.
One Tree Hill is about two half-brothers, Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) and Nathan (James Lafferty), who share the same father, Dan (Paul Johansson), but different mothers, Lucas' mom, Karen(Moira Kelly) and Nathan's mom, Deb (Barbara Alyn Woods). The show basically revolves around the two brothers and the girls in their lives and what they deal with everyday. Dan left Karen their senior year of high school after he found out that she was pregnant with Lucas. He went off to college and met Deb, got her pregnant, and the two later got married and had Nathan. Keith (Craig Sheffer)is Dan's older brother and has always had feelings for Karen, although those feelings haven't been reciprocated. He's also been like a father to Lucas.Read more ›
Pretty great. They are sprinkled throughout the DVD's, which I liked. Each disc has some special features on them, which makes watching each disc enjoyable because after you watch an episode you can watch the deleted scenes for it or listen to one of the commentaries. The best part of the special features is the cast commentary on the last episode. They have two separate commentaries one featuring all the "teens" and one with all the adults. Both were hilarious. It's great hearing the behind the scenes stuff and how all the "teen" girls are crushing on Craig Sheffer aka Keith. Then you hear Moira and Barbara practicing whisper talking like Sophia. The other commentaries are by the producers for the pilot episode and the Boy Toy auction. They are interesting but not as funny as the cast.
The deleted scenes are great. There was a ton of stuff cut out. There is one whole storyline involving Peyton and a foster child who now plays Teri Hatchers daughter on Desperate Housewives. The diaries are okay. They are quite short. One is on Chad's birthday, one shows him buying a truck, and the last one is when they thought a Hurricane was coming. The making of One Tree Hill is interesting in terms of back-story. The exclusive Gavin DeGraw performance is just him singing "Oh Chariot" in Karen's Café. Not anything special. There also a clip of a practical joke Paul plays on Barbara, which is funny and shows that he's not like the character he plays. Overall, I think this DVD contains some of the best Bonus Features I've seen on these series DVD's recently.
