I only got into this last summer (2008) when my little cousin made me watch an episode of season 4 on E4, instantly i was hooked, i loved Chad Michael Murray anyway so that was an added bonus seeing him in it.

I immediatly went out and got series 1 & 2 on dvd as soon as i could, and suddenly started to understand everything more clearly and christmas 2008 i got series 3 & 4.

Due to the first episode i ever saw being late series 4 my cousin had to fill me in on why certain stuff was happening, i knew from her explanations that i hated Dan (because of episode 316) but i was not prepared for the effect that seeing Paul Johansson portray such an evil character as well has he does would have on me. Any show that can make me feel so much hate for one guy, and any actor who can pull a character like Dan Scott off in my book is worth something, it is the times when you do not think you can hate such a character any more than you already do and you are proven wrong that you have to think what a fantastic show One Tree Hill actually is.

Several times through out the series that i have seen so far (1,2,3 & 4) i have thought that maybe there was a glimmer of hope that Dan Scott could be nice, every time i was wrong, and every time i hated him more and the more i hated him, the more involved in the show i feel i became, more so i think when i actually saw 316 and would scream at the tv for someone to just take him down and find out what he did, the longer people couldn't see what Dan Scott really was, the more i needed to see, so that i saw his down fall.

But One Tree Hill is not just good because of Dan, Nathan in the first series, is horrible, and like his father is very easy to hate for a while, and this comes back again briefly at various stages throught the other series (1/2/3/4) but you have to admire the courage shown by Lucas, and the friendship between Haley and Lucas when Nathan is being this way.

The characters, the fantastic actors and brilliant scripts make One Tree Hill the best show i have ever seen in my life, any show that can make someone like me who hardly ever shows emotion (especially when it comes to tv shows) as emotional as it has done (and believe me there have been a range of emotions i have felt while watching episodes from sad to angry to happy to "omg i just want to die laughing right now") is worth a never ending amount of stars for a rating, but it only goes up to 5 so that will have to do.

I do not look at shows to pick it apart, maybe if i did the review i am writing now would be completely different, but if you enjoy teen dramas and you want a show packed with a variety of emotional scenes that are portrayed by such fantastic actors One Tree Hill is the show for you. Take a risk and do not listen to bad reviews you won't be dissapointed

I found this first season of One Tree Hill quite unusual, and in some ways refreshing, for an American TV series. Rather than being set in the usual unrealistic and glamourous world of the ultra rich (such as The OC, Gossip Girl, 90210 to name a few), it takes a group of ordinary families and tells their story. This does tend to mean that the storylines are more down to earth than escapist fantasy but it still makes for good viewing overall and holds the interest to drag you into their world.

The box set contains all 22 episodes of the first season and each disc has plenty of extras on it including lots of additional scenes, cast commentaries and a couple of featurettes.

Well worth investing the time to watch.

Chad Michael Murraty is amazing, what more can you nee that him almost naked in one of the first episodes?! not only is there him but also his half brother James Lafferty is steaming up the screen. For males it has the gorgeous Hilarie Burton and Sophia Bush and ofcourse it being based around a basketball team! With the confusing plot that seem to become more and more confusing, you would think that it is just another teen drama, but with the adult storylines being just as centeral, it for any ages! To make the programme even better the title track "I Don't Wana Be" by Gavin Degraw has a instantly recognisable start!
One of the best quotes from the season has to be "nice hands"......... " nice legs", from to sexual tension that was being bulit up by Peyton and Lucas.
In my veiw it is not a normal teen programme, as you show a range of emotions, especially when the series gets going and we see a range of accidents! in the last episode it leaves you waiting on the edge of your seat for the next seaon to greet our shores!!!!
Not only on the DVD are there all the episodes, but you also get hours of bonus footage, which is as enjoyable as the series itself!!!
IT A MUST BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

starting watching oth on e4 like so many other people and it was soooooooooo great i could not stop watching it, it has replaced the space that dawsons creek left. - which was huge. i love the love square plus one story line and cant wait until the next season hits the screen, the stories are really great and what you think of the character on the first disc by the 5 you will think so much more of them and really enjoy watching them grow. everyone of my friends remind me of the charcters - nathan, lucas, brooke, payton, hayley and even jake develops into a great character. this is A MUCH WATCH

A great watch, followed the series on TV and decided it was necessary to see them all again. Some great storylines along the way. Would recommend to people who like the OC which is also brilliant. Overall a great purchase.

One Tree Hill is my favourite programme ever. You get so addicted and believe the characters and their lives so much. The storylines are great and each episode is always very deep as well as entertaining. I am hooked and have seen every episode at least 3 times! If you like American dramas this is for you.

As a fan of One Tree Hill, I had seen the later episodes and had Season 5, but not the earlier ones. I thought Season 1 was great and seeing how they started the show - I have now bought all the seasons, except Season 6, which I will be doing asap!!

Who could not love One Tree Hill. We only starting watching it this year and we are absolutely hooked on it. We have Series 1,2,3, and just bought Series 4, half way through it and still the show is as great as ever. I cannot wait to see Series 5. One Tree Hill is blessed with great actors, great story lines, excellent music, and some really important issues raised in each series. I never really got into the OC...I think One Tree Hill is universal, and has more realistic people in it.

Nathan is a hottie... Pouting Sexy Chad is a younger Brad, the girls are all beautiful, Brooke is stunningly beautiful and her bitchy lines are classics, Payton also beautiful..poor Payton she goes through alot but dont worry Payton at least your hair always looks great during the bad times!!! Beautiful Hayley, who reminds me of Shakira all the time is a great actress. Karen and Deb great too. Dan is brilliantly bad, we love him!! Mouth, Rachel, Skills, alot of great characters. We love Coach Whitey, and that accent is so strong, his emotional speech when accepting his lifetime achievement will have you in tears!! We miss you Keith!!!!

Each series has so many funny moments but alot of very sad, powerful emotional ones too, that will have you very tearful.

Buy all the series you WILL LOVE THEM!!!

WELL DONE TO ALL THE ACTORS, AND EVERYONE INVOLVED WITH THE SHOW. WE LOVE IT !!!

p.s. Note to the writers.... Please could Nathan and Lucas take their tops off more often ? just so anyone who is considering basketball can see how great the sport is and how it keeps you fit.........ok I am lying...JUST DO IT!!!
