One Tree Hill is a teen drama series that airs on The CW. Iíve never seen an episode of it so I canít provide much more information than that. I think we can assume that the series contains the usual amount of sex, drugs, occasional violence and a healthy dose of drama thrown in on the regular to keep things interesting.

As I understand it, the characters graduated from high school at the end of last season. Rather than dragging the series through the college years (which is usually when your average teen drama series will start to slump), the writers have fast-forwarded the gang past college and into adulthood.

When season 5 premieres, it will be four years in the future. Time will have passed, and fans will get to find out where everyoneís been for the last four years, what theyíve been up to and where their lives are headed now.

Like I said, Iíve never seen an episode of this series so normally my anticipation level would be at ď1Ē for this show but Iím actually kind of intrigued by the whole fast-forward concept. Had Veronica Mars not been cancelled, it was probable that the series wouldíve gone the same route. As Veronicaís first year in college was pretty dismal, I canít say that I blame the One Tree Hill crew for deciding to forgo the college years and bump the kids into adulthood a lot sooner. In that way, theyíll almost be able to reboot the series. Fans can get to know the characters all over again. In fact, I may actually consider watching the premiere episode. If there were ever a time to get into this show mid-series, now would probably be it.

As a non-OTH viewer, I invite any fans of the series to post a comment telling us why itís a great show or if not, express your disapproval/nervousness over the fast-forward thing.
