While complicated and dramatic, this show provides many life lessons for teenagers that make it so relatable and fun to watch. Sophomore Sophie Napolitano says that One Tree Hill is “filled with so much love ”. This show is really exciting to watch and promises a good story, as Napolitano puts it “it also shows different types of families and shows teenagers and young adults their journey through growing up together and changing as people”. This show embodies high school and all the things associated with it, but also shows the character’s development as they grow into great people.

“it also shows different types of families and shows teenagers and young adults their journey through growing up together and changing as people”.”

Viewers can really connect with this show, characters like Brooke Davis, played by Sophia Bush,  make you really feel connected with the show. Daniel Fienberg of the Chicago Tribune puts it as “Bush, the only reason I ever really want to watch this show, is forced to work around Brooke’s erratic and often insufferable character fluctuations”. The character development from this show makes you want to come back for more. While this show is fictional, you feel as if you are watching the characters grow up into inspiring people. Ginia Bellafante of The New York Times states how “ ‘One Tree Hill’ is a no-arrogance, no-entitlement zone, and I’m (shamefully) happy to pull up and park”. This show is worth the binge watch as you will become surrounded by the fictional world of Tree Hill it will almost feel so real. 

While OTH ended filming in 2012, it is still a fan favorite to this day. While it is no longer available on Netflix, it is still something great to watch especially with all this free time. It will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat  and bring some excitement to quarantine. This show is absolutely binge worthy, especially during this quarantine.
