At the risk of further destroying this TV Addict’s credibility, I’m just going to say it. Tonight’s 2 hour fifth season premiere of ONE TREE HILL is must see TV. No seriously. Before you close your browser in disgust. Or worse, click on over to read my nemesis Michael Ausiello — hear me out. Because OTH writer/creator Mark Schwan deserves some serious credit.
Rather than force fans to endure the show-killer that would inevitably have been OTH: The College Years, Schwan cleverly decided to skip college altogether. Tonight’s premiere picks up 4 years later, where we find Lucas back in Tree Hill coaching Basketball, Brooke living the high life as a New York fashion designer and Peyton attempting to turn her music producing dreams into a reality. Of course, this being ONE TRE HILL, not everything is as it seems and having your dreams come true may not be all that it’s cracked up to be.
Still not convinced? Here are two more reasons to tune into tonight’s premiere.
1) Kevin Federline [pictured above] pops up for a 3 episode guest arc as a musician. And let’s face it, the ex-Britney Spears most definitely could use a career boost in order to support his train-wreck of a family.
2) Fans of FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS will find one plot line in particular very familiar.
