On September 23, 2001 some may say the best show of all time was released. One Tree Hill. It is a 9 season show that went on till 2012. A brief description of One Tree Hill or as fans call OTH, is half-brothers Lucas and Nathan Scott trade between kinship and rivalry on both the basketball court and through friendships in the small town of Tree Hill, North Carolina.
The Director of One Tree Hill is Mark Shwahn and stars Chad Michael Murray, Bethany Joy Lenz, Sophia Bush, James Lafferty, Hilarie Burton, Antwon Tanner, Shantel VanSanten, Robert Buckley, and many others. They all have very strong and diverse characters that make you want to keep watching. Every episode leads to another and it is very easy to get attached to.
After all these years teens still watch One Tree Hill. Many people travel to Wilmington, North Carolina to see the actual houses used for the show. The unique thing about One Tree Hill is they had real live sets. They didn’t build a set so it makes people interested and actually believe the stories.
Many die-heart fans wanted to get to know the actors and they were in luck. EyeCon is the first company to take the chance on a One Tree Hill convention in America. They have different packages that you can buy and get more opportunities to meet the people who made the show spectacular. This past month they had the second convention for all the fans. People got together and got pictures with them, autographs, concerts, parties, presentations, and many other things. They make sure you really get a good experience and meet the people you love through the T.V. screen.
In the future there will be many more conventions. The next convention taking place is going to be in London. The characters who have committed so far are Bethany Joy Lenz, Chad Michael Murray, Shantel VanSanten, Antwon Tanner, and Michael Compon. Fans from all around will be going to this convention!
Although I wish I could go to this convention the tickets are super expensive and I can always just watch OTH through my tv screen. I love One Tree Hill and I think you should give the show a chance. Who knows, you might love the characters just as much as me!
