I have heard from many sources and from accaintances of mine, that One Tree Hill is the show to watch, that even watching just the Pilot, you will be instantly hooked - I have to agree.
There is something about One Tree Hill that you want to watch more, in this episode you see two different teenage boys, both raised very differently with different values. Lucas is a character you instantly fall in love with. He was raised right by a single mom.
Anyone that lives in a small town or once did, can appreciate the small community that One Tree Hill is. All the characters seem to have such different personalities you can't help but be drawn in.
Peyton seems to be a dark character but the chemistry between her and Lucas can not be denied. I'm assuming this progresses further in later episodes, even though she is dating the star of the basketball team, Nathan - Lucas' half brother.
Can't wait to watch more!
