One Tree Hill: The Complete First Season (Repackage)(DVD)
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.]]>
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

Highly recommended !!!
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.

Lucas Scott is a street basketball player whose father, Dan, left his pregnant mother before he was born. It was there he met Deb Scott and also got her pregnant. Their son, Nathan, is the star of Tree Hill Ravens, the school basketball team. Dan's brother, Keith, helped to raise Lucas. Nathan's girlfriend, Peyton Sawyer is a cheerleader for the Ravens along with her best friend, Brooke Davis. Haley James is Lucas' best friend.
The actors are very well chosen and give great performances throughout the series. Chad Michael Murray plays the brooding outcast brilliantly and believably.
Paul Johansson is excellent as the Tree Hill villain, Dan.

One Tree Hill relies heavily on music to set the scene. What really works is the variety of music they use. From well known bands such as Snow Patrol and Stereophonics to underground acts. This is a great place to find some awesome new music to listen to.
With so many characters comes a lot of storylines. Most people can probably relate to at least one. I find this really helps me to connect with a show and its characters. There are twists and turns throughout, from Dan and Lucas' relationship to that of Keith and Karen. At times it is funny and at others particularly emotional. Watching the characters grow is very engaging and entertaining.
This box set includes additional scenes not shown on TV, commentaries by the cast and crew and behind-the-scenes footage.
I would recommend this to anyone, at least to watch the pilot. There are 22 episodes, each around 43 mins long. Well worth a tenner!
The love triangle, deaths, frienship, faimly is all captured in this series. Although it starts off being about high school, basketball and the drama.. the script of OTH is so engaging and creative which is why bay FAR it is the best american TV show. I also love 90210, The Vampire Diaries, which is similar, Its so nice to see tha OTH has made it to Season 9
But Definately you should watch this, most suitable for teenagers, great story lines and actors Chad Micheal Murray, Sophia Bush, James Lafferty ;)
I don't believe I am the target audience being in my thirties, however I was pleasantly surprised by this series.
I even ordered Season two whilst only half way through this first season.
I am a fan of Dawsons Creek, Gilmore girls etc, and find this, in my opinion, to have the same feel good factor, albeit bordering on cheesy on numerous occasions. But it is very enjoyable, easy to watch, and as I enjoyed it so much I give it five stars.
Obviously a very popular show to last nine seasons!
Its been a surprise hit for me this year and I'm glad I had that whim now and purchased this great show.
Even if you hate basketball (like me!) never mind as the show is not just about basketball, this show is about the characters.
Buy this now and you won't regret it even if you think this won't be your cup of tea it will be soon!
