Critic Reviews for One Tree Hill Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8)

The young audience for which One Tree Hill is aimed may swallow all this unflinchingly. Yet if they learned anything from Dawson's Creek, a much better and smarter show, they're more likely to gag.

The writing -- like the basketball scenes -- is junior-varsity stuff.

Enjoyably cheesy with some nice moments of juxtaposed stories and visuals. Teen soap fans will be satisfied, as long as they're willing to endure the show's intense, sometimes laughable earnestness.

Even if you loved the show, it's impossible to deny that there were some serious problematic parts, such as character portrayal, age differences, choices to make some episodes "supernatural," and select plot holes that avid fans could spot immediately.

A standard-issue WB teen soap opera about love and basketball that promises to get better because it can't really get much worse.

In some way or another, this show is trying to be Everwood, Dawson's Creek, Eight Mile and Hoosiers all rolled into one. It would be a whole lot more accessible if it would just try to be One Tree Hill, whatever that is.

The Biblical story is a good, classic plot that lends itself well to a modern retelling, as John Steinbeck did so well in East of Eden. If the pilot is any indication, it should work just as well for the teen set in One Tree Hill.

Nov 26, 2018 | Full Review…

A very likable and melancholy drama about high school basketball and patrimony.

Nov 26, 2018 | Full Review…

From the start, One Tree Hill made it so easy to fall in love with all its characters, which is why it's easy to navigate the sillier parts of the show.

Sep 25, 2018 | Full Review…

It's like they came up with the concoction -- teen angst and pouting and brooding and raw emotions and shirtlessness -- then mixed it all together with lumpen writing and overarching themes.
