Dan survived the fire and vows revenge, his evil machinations again to dominate - including a bid to be mayor, can you believe!

Season 3 has disappointments - a few stories trite, a rather shallow newcomer creakingly stirring things up a bit. Not all the attempts at comedy work: some of the younger stars needing to know it involves more than speaking very quickly and waving arms around.

Fortunately the strengths dominate: much of the writing, most of the cast. There are welcome returns of favourite characters, moving portrayals of teenagers trying to adapt to new circumstances: Lucas keeping secret his heart condition; Peyton out of the blue confronted by her biological mother; the marriage of Nathan and Haley in disarray. Outstanding (again) are Barry Corbin as Coach and Lee Norris as Mouth - spellbinders both, dominating the screen whenever they appear.

As for Episode 16...! Here an already fine series attains new heights - at the High School, sudden horror. Although mirroring similar real life tragedies, sensationalism is avoided - a heartrending issue sensitively handled and provoking much thought. Cast and crew were deeply affected during the making. Also powerful is the episode that follows, those who were involved trying to make sense of it all.

Despite occasional weaknesses (including unconvincing final cliffhangers), the season deserves its five stars. Although over fifty years older than the probable intended audience, I found much to applaud - not least the show's heart and integrity.

Season 3

Senior year. A time to grow up, to forget, to forgive, to dream, to learn to love all over again. People come together -- except Dan, consumed by anger as he tracks down whoever started the fire that almost took his life. Tree Hill is rocked by powerful new events -- the good, the bad and the catastrophic. The good: Haley fights to save her marriage, Peyton comes to terms with her birth mother, Brooke creates a hot clothing line, and Keith comes home. The bad: Dan gets a rival for worst person in Tree Hill -- a conniving redhead named Rachel, the new girl at school. The catastrophic: Tragedy strikes Tree Hill High, and suddenly who wins the cheerleading tournament or basketball championship seems insignificant compared to who lives. And who doesn't.

The series follows their lives and some of their family issues and influences, the main characters face many trials and dramas which unfold a hidden story, that causes more lives to be turned upside down. If you like a good drama, this is for you.

With Season One's focus being to try to find its footing and Season Two lacking the essiential basketball drama that made the show unique in the first place, you'd think that the producers of One Tree Hill would have found the right balance by the third season. And, I am glad to confirrm, they have.

Season Three kicks off the Tree Hill High Schoolers' final year of high school. Dan is desperate to track down the culprit who attempted to kill him in the fire as the Tree Hill teens attempt to adjust to ordinary life after the drama that ensued in the Season Two finale. Lucas is keen to get back with Brooke and Brooke agrees - with a twist. Meanwhile, Haley returns to Tree Hill from her rock tour and attempts to reconcile with a brooding Nathan who feels as though he can no longer trust Haley due to her decision to go on tour and abandon Nathan and her friends all the while last season. And of course, basketball season starts again with Nathan all too determined to gain a basketball scholarship for college.

The third season definitely manages to top the first two with its balance of relationship and basketball drama. The actors appear more confident in their roles, having played them for years already. The acting and the writing is, as usual, of a high quality and, as is the case with One Tree Hill, you'll be literally addicted to its ever engaging storylines.

Overall, Season Three of One Tree Hill is brilliant and engaging. A pleasure for any Tree Hill fan and for any fan of American Teen Drama. A worthwhile watch that you won't regret.

Disc 1-5 for season 3 was very good, played perfectly well. But to Disc 6, the last 3 episodes, froze and it wouldn't play. The CD is completely scratched and damaged ,I'm very annoyed. I would like to know what has happened on Episode 20,21,22.

As with the two previous seasons, this one starts immediately after the end of the first with the fire at Dan's car dealership. It sees the kids entering the first half of their senior year at Tree Hill High School with the drama getting even better than before.

With this season, the show has really got into it's stride with the confidence of the actors within their roles and the writing really coming together to produce some outstanding television.

The box set contains all 22 episodes of the third season. As with the previous seasons there are plenty of extras including additional scenes on most episodes, commentaries on three episodes and a featurette on the making of an episode.

If you have enjoyed the first two seasons, then this is an essential purchase.

This show just gets better and better every series. This series involves everything from a school shooting to a wedding. The show itself is great and has everything that a lot of British shows don't have in them which is amazing music every episode has music which reflects the characters emotions. You will not regret buying this, you will just wish you had watched it from the start.

dan has survived the fire but is soon back to his old ways and even becomes mayor! keith comes back and finally gets his true love karen who has returned from a summer in new zealand alone. peyton struggles with the return of her birth mother and has fling with pete from fall out boy. she has to follow her heart and its takes her to savannah and Jake ( can bryan greenberg wear a wife beater or what?!) lucas comes to terms with his heart condition and his future pplaying basketball, the brooke and lucas will they wont they continues as always. the major storyline is the school shooting which im not sure if they did show on tv as a similar tragedy had happened just before it aired in the UK. great episode which didnt glamourise or sensationalise the story and brought tragedy to all in tree hill. Lee Norris becomes a regular cast member and is brillant to watch. dvd set also contains unairedscenes, feature on the school shooting episode along with episode commentary. music guests fall out boy and bethany joy galeotti performs again.

I've been a One Tree Hill fan pretty much since it began and with the last season finished a couple of months ago I decided it was time to relive the dramas of the small town teens. I still think season 1 was the best but season 3 is definetly fun to watch and it's great to see the development of the characters. Groundbreaking episode 16 is a highlight too. Special features are good, the 10 minute documentry on the making of episode 16 was very interesting. Overall, I couldn't stop watching.
