Tuesday, January 8th, 2008 marks the return of One Tree Hill to The CW with a two-hour season premiere. The show flashes forward 4+ years and drops you back into the lives of Brooke, Haley, Lucas, Mouth, Nathan, and Peyton.
It has never been one of the best shows on TV, but it has plugged right along, first on The WB and now on The CW. The TVaholic still wishes they had gone through with the plans to do this with the far superior Veronica Mars. But, alas they didn’t. So, the return of One Tree Hill will just have to do, since there is very little else in the scripted drama department these days, due to the writers’ strike.
Now, it jumps from the end of high school in season four, to after college in season five. Bizarrely enough, most will still be playing characters that are still younger than they are.
