Andy's 'One Tree Hill' Afterthoughts: Isn't This Now The Most Depressing Show On TV? Everyone's Life Sucks!

Dear Lucas, I’m just going to nitpick this week — aside from Brooke’s business drama, the Oct. 12 episode was a depressing snooze fest.

I think we can all agree that NO ONE outside of the people on this show would ever watch Julian’s (Austin Nichols) documentary about the Tree Hill gang’s daily lives. Why would people willingly subject themselves to an hour of depressing southerners talk about giving up their dreams and being unhappy? Oh, wait… I do that every single week now.

The slower scenes, however, were punctuated once again by moments of sheer genius from Miz Sophia Bush. As I watched Brooke lose her money, her company and her mother, I felt like I was walking through white collar hell right along with her.

And now, my sources of boredom & sadness this evening:

  1. Is it just me, or are the girls always right on this show, and the guys always absurdly understanding? Between Nathan (James Lafferty) crying on the season premiere, and now Julian practically living merely to boost Brooke’s ego… these guys had better be getting some.
  2. Why is Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) suddenly working for a crisis help line? Note to Miz James Scott: You may have a flair for the theatrical, but you are not Brenda Walsh! (Also, who do we all think is the mystery person who keeps calling her?)
  3. Even if Chase (Stephen Colletti) turned into a werewolf and Alex (Jana Kramer) turned into a vampire and they started fighting, I would STILL NOT care even the smallest of bits about their storyline. Just serve the beer, kids.
  4. Weird goop is still oozing from Clay (Robert Buckley) and Quinn’s (Shantel VanSanten) bullet wounds, but they were both allowed to go home to the scene of the crime. Let the horrific flashbacks begin!

What annoyed you this week? Or was the episode great, and I’m just being a Negative Nathan? Vote below, and drop a comment. Don’t be shy.

I could not agree with you more! At this point I just want them to bring back Dan so we can have something interesting and less sappy going on!

Umm, did you totally black out during Mouth’s HILARIOUS act for Julian?? That was easily the funniest/freshest part of this episode other than the divine Ms. Bush, who was terrific as usual. Lee Norris is hilarious when the writers give him decent material!
