I wouldn’t have expected anything less from the production company responsible for Smallville (an effective blending of two bipolar gender interests: comic book superheroes and teenage soap opera), but Tollin/Robbins Productions has made the lightning strike the same place twice with One Tree Hill.

One Tree Hill centers on the lives and loves of two half brothers named Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray) and Nathan Scott (James Lafferty) who both go to a high school in Tree Hill, North Carolina, and play for the same basketball team. Other plot points in the show include their smarmy, self-serving father, Dan Scott, Nathan’s poor, downtrodden mother and their respective love interests.

The series started with Lucas being recruited by the Ravens basketball team, which experienced a sudden lack of players after most of its team members were suspended for drunk driving. Lucas’ inclusion into the team and his exceptional performance didn’t go too well with his half-brother Nathan, who is the current captain of the Ravens. Nathan wanted Lucas off the team because he felt threatened and wanted to remain as the Raven’s star player, going so far as to help kidnap is brother and throw him into a ditch. Lucas persevered nonetheless, and eventually, after several clashes and complicated relationships that are intertwined with each other, and as a result of finding out that they share a common dislike for their father, Lucas and Nathan found themselves able to work together not only as brothers but also as teammates.

One remarkable trait of One Tree Hill is its ability to get both male and female watchers to relate with certain aspects of the show. One Tree Hill was in fact originally intended to be a show about the basketball team, and was tentatively called “Ravens”, until producers changed the concept to also get the female demographic interested. As a result, male viewers may be inclined to watch the show due to the masculine plot devices such as basketball, rivalries between brothers and peers, competitiveness in sports, and the brothers’ struggle against their unscrupulous biological father.

The female watchers, on the other hand, loved the soap opera aspect of One Tree Hills, Teenage girls and young twenty-something were the perfect target demographic for One Tree Hills complicated pairings and the twisted, strained relationships between the various characters in the show – from Nathan’s initial hostile reaction towards Lucas, their love interests Peyton, Brooke and Haley, the complicated relationships between their mothers and father, and everything in between.

Still going strong since its inception on September of 2003, One Tree Hill has seen many ups and downs and continues to please its viewers and fans as it enters its sixth season. One Tree Hill is currently being shown on the CW Television during Mondays at 9/8C.
