One Tree Hill: Another Week of Filler


I found this week's episode of One Tree Hill to be fairly uneventful once more. Besides learning that Dan is in fact in need of a heart transplant, Lucas doesn't do much (except a little coaching and doctor visiting), Brooke continues to learn that watching after a baby is tough, Dan pleads with Nathan to spend more time with Jamie, Haley hangs around with Jamie and does some recording (what ever happened to her class?) and Peyton begins to get over Lucas (only to read his second book, which I imagine will rapidly change her mind).


The Good:

-Peyton is beginning to act like the mature adult that she is supposed to be. She even went to Lindsay and made a case for the Lucas/Lindsay relationship (though that may have turned out to backfire).

-The Mouth/Millicent pairing is growing on me. I'll admit that they're pretty cute.

-Lucas providing Brooke with all of this help and moral support is awfully kind.

-Lindsay denies Lucas his video chat. Ha.


The Bad:

-I'm very bored with Dan these days. As Nathan keeps pointing out, seeing as he's a murderer and all, spending time with Jamie just won't be an option. Thus, every week his story is more of the same:

Dan: I want to have a relationship with Jamie. I'm different now.

Nathan: No. Well...

Haley: NO.

Dan: Pretty please? I tried to kill myself in jail.

Nathan: (reluctantly) No.

I'm hoping that Dan will die from this heart condition and that this can be the end of him. I think dying alone would be a fitting way for him to go...

-Brooke bringing the baby to the presentation? Can you say unprofessional? Why couldn't she have left her with the secretary or something (and don't start arguing that the baby was a part of the presentation; you don't need a baby to show drawings of baby clothes)?

-Haley, if you're going to throw away Jamie's card, you should at least bury it at the bottom of the garbage can instead of leaving it on the top for Jamie to find next week!


The Ridiculous:

-The cardiologist looked a little bit young, didn't he?

-I don't know all that much about basketball, or sports, but I feel like this new Ravens "lets only shoot 3 pointers" strategy is ridiculous. Even professional basketball players are not particularly reliable with their 3 point shot percentages. Thus, there is no way that an entire high school basketball team is going to start successfully throwing (and making) exclusively 3 pointers. If all it required was a little bit of extra practice, I think somebody else would have utilized this strategy quite some time ago.

If you think that much stuff on the show is bad or ridiculous, I suggest you should stop watching the show all together, or at least stop boring people who actually like the show with your useles comments.

i think this weeks episode was just filler. nothing big happened. it was like watching someone eat a meal; boring and uneventful. i fliped back and forth between it and wildfire, and didnt miss anything. i love OTH, but where has all the drama gone?

I actually this as well that nothing really happened in this weeks episode and I think its mainly because in the past the episodes have been filled with a lot of stuff, something has always been happening, and no its more like watching someones every day life. i gotta say that am lookin forward to see somthing happening soon... anything would be great! :)

Although I love One Tree Hill, it's one of my favorites, I have to agree with RachelL. It seems like the writers have moved everything they originally wanted to happen in this season to the next one. It's great that OTH is getting another season, but it's not so nice, that they are leaving us hanging in here with not much to happen.I mean come on: No news on the Brooke/Chase line, a tiny twist on Dan's story due to his heart condition, Peyton, Lindsay, Lucas, Nathan and Haley seem to be doing almost exactly the same as last week and the week before. Did the writers run out of ideas?
Obviously they wanna make us wait for the happy Peyton/Lucas ending until next season, alright, i get that, but does it mean both their lives just have to burble along? Why not let Lindsay give Lucas another shot but under a very tough condition, so there can be some more drama? Why didn'T they try to get something out of the Quentin/Haley story? Why not give skills a bigger, more interesting part in the whole story and Peyton a big chance so her mind will be off lucas for a minute? And where the hell is Rachel? She was always good for some drama. The story needs some spice is all i'm saying.I'm still obsessed with finding out what happens next, but at the moment the episodes just appear to be fillers and leading to the finale. I hope that it'll be a good one with more than one hook.

I so agree with RachelL! I mean I thought this season was going so great. I really didn't think the 4 years later thing would work, but I was pleased to be proved wrong. However it seems that lately OTH has just lost its way a little bit. In fact I can tell you exactly when it happened... it was the episode after Lucas and Lindsay's [non] wedding, Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace. Never had I ever seen a worse episode then that... I was just so BORED! Which is so unlike one tree hill, I watched it for the soapish unrealistic drama, and the quirky comedy and watching people grow... and more drama! But that has just sort of disapated recently. After that terrible episode, I will say things got a little better but still not upto one tree hill standards. Someone here posted that RachelL should stop watching the show if she wasn't happy... and I have to admit, I am actually considering it. I have stuck by OTH for a long time now, but I just think its not cutting it as of late and I find my self channel flicking when its on because NOTHING HAPPENS. I don't know, I will probably give it a couple of weeks more to hopefully right itself, if not I can't help but tune out.

I dont know. okay, these past episodes have been okay, not really all great to the twist that happens in shows like Gossip Girl or anything but so what. A true OTH fan would probably love the show no matter what. And we have to atleast give it some credit, they gava OTH a season five it was either that, OTH, or give the spot to either Veronica mars and some other show. i bet OTH made it more interesting this season than if some other show got the spot.
