OTH: Better Than Ever Baby! (Season 7, Episode 2)


Here's a show that actually gets better the longer it's on TV...7 years now, and still going strong! There have been times, in the past, when I didn't watch as much b/c it kind of bored me, but I will honestly say that the past few seasons have been pretty good...I noticed a dramatic improvement in the show after Gossip Girl started getting all the buzz. At that time, I thought GG was definitely better then OTH in terms of the writing, but now I actually prefer One Tree Hill. The show definitely deserves kudos for the vast improvement it made in such a short period of time.


I got into Brulian last season, and am loving all their togetherness...I hope they don't get boring though. The writers are going to have to do something to keep them interesting- now that they're living together, and are officially, the new Leyton. I don't really mind that Leyton is gone...I enjoyed them at times, but then at times, I didn't. I liked that Lucas could bring the waterworks on with his sentimental/thoughtful narration... I suppose Dan is the new narrator, of sorts...speaking of which: WOW. I find it amazing how they've redeemed Dan...very creative. They've found a way to resurrect his character in an interesting & original way, so they get hand claps for that one. I'm glad they haven't abandoned the sentimentality of the show, as that's what makes One Tree Hill for me.


Naley is my couple...they're great together. I love their relationship and their adorable Jamie. I knew it was only a matter of time before they had to bring the drama into their relationship (since this is a drama), but Whoa! I just didn't see the gold-digging skank s/l coming (although he is a professional b-ball player, so it makes sense), b/c I guess I just never thought he'd be in a situation where he could be accused of cheating (but then, that crazy psycho babysitter fabricated a story against him, so I suppose I should have seen this a-comin'). I don't believe he even slept with her...who cares whether he was drunk and she's three months pregnant? That doesn't mean it's his child...just get a dna test done pronto...they did it on "Young and the Restless" last year (although that stupid s/l continued for the better part of the year...but this is about OTH, so I'll get back to it). Haley had me rolling a few times in this epi: I enjoyed her imaginary conversation w/Peyton and Lucas...she did a good job mimicking their facial expressions and voices. I was also glad when she got the one-up on that record label lady and said "who's the b*tch now b*tch?" Lol...Haley is a trip...


Other Thoughts: So Dan's wife turns out to be Brooke's baddie-buddy from high school...who would've thunk it? I knew that new actress-chick was acting when she came back from the restroom completely opposite from what she had been before she went in. I was hoping Brooke would read her and not fall for the okey-doke, but alas, I think this girl is here to cause problems, so here we go...


I'm looking forward to seeing the next episode and the new season, in general...I think this is going to be a juicy one.

Yeah, I don't like anyone messing w/Nate or Naley...we may need the old Dan to come back for a moment and take care of her, lol. I know we're all human and make mistakes, but I just don't want to believe that Nate was so out of it that he'd step out on Haley...I hope someone pulls the rug out from under that skank, quickly.

I agree, Lucas & Peyton were boring last year, and I actually preferred watching Nathan & Haley (my faves : )...yep, the fact that they can move on and still keep the show interesting is a tribute to the talent and creativity of the writers. I just hope they will keep the show focused on the characters we've grown to love over the years, and not these newcomers...if anything, they should just be support roles.
