My One Tree Hill Re-Watch: Season 1

I finally caved and decided to re-watch One Tree Hill. I have been putting this off for so long because there are 9 (!!!) seasons. I also tend to get a little addicted to binge watching.

This tweet is still 100% true. One Tree Hill is early 2000s perfection. The high school memories just flooded back with every moment of the show. And damn, so much happens in season one! Like, all the things I remember about One Tree Hill happen in season one.

Not going to lie, I got a little teary watching the opening credits for the first time.

The technology from 2003 is so fucking hilarious.

Selfies on a polaroid, because Peyton was the best prime-time punk rock princess ever.

Doing a quick little Internet Search, y’all.

Nathan snapping a 0.3-megapixel photo of Haley and Sheryl Crow, because even back then they knew that pics or it didn’t happen was the rule.

I don’t know what is more retro about this photo, the classic Nokia phone, that Brooke is actually calling, or that it is titled “Brooke’s Cell” because they all still used their home phones too.

These “Street Style” headphones that he was probably using with a discman.  Screen Shot 2016-05-14 at 7.08.25 PM

The early 2000s fashion is also so perfectly captured.

This random extra on the basketball team who is only in this episode. His hair + necklace combo and, maybe eyeliner (?!) is so much emo perfection.

The quotable moments from the show are killer. This gem is my favorite:

“I guess I’m just a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside a bitch.” — Peyton Sawyer

Oh and the soundtrack is beyond amazing. I’ve compiled my favorites from season one in case you’d like to stroll down a very emo memory lane. So many of the songs from this TV show were the ones on the mix cds my bestie, Ida, and I made.

I am so glad I’m re-watching One Tree Hill in all its glory. Season 1 gets a 10/10 in my book. Did you watch One Tree Hill back in the day? Are you a Brooke, Haley, or Peyton? I’m obviously a Peyton 😉
