One of my guilty pleasures is curling up on the couch with a hot drink or a glass of wine and watching a DVD.
I don’t watch a lot of television, in fact I find I go through stages where I don’t have much time to watch television, and it’s almost impossible to be home at the same time every week to watch the same show (and I’m yet to invest in a recorder as I can’t convince myself that I would remember to watch the shows I’ve recorded!)
So instead, I often turn to DVD’s of TV shows so I can watch an episode here and there when I have time…when Frivolous Friday calls, I’ll let you know what it is I’m watching…currently it’s one of my favourites…One Tree Hill…
Set in Tree Hill, North Carolina, One Tree Hill follows the lives of Lucas and Nathan Scott (…brothers to different mothers), along with their friends Haley, Brooke and Peyton.
Over the course of nine seasons…it starts in high school and follows them to graduation…then jumping ahead to the post college years, we meet them again as adults.
At times (OK, a lot of the time…) it’s far fetched and not realistic…but quite often it touches on some very important subjects (teen pregnancy, suicide, marriage, divorce, death and business…to name a few).
At the end of the day, if a TV show or a movie is mildly entertaining and can take me to another place, even if just for an hour or two, I’m pretty happy…so I’ve just put Season One back in the DVD player, and I’ll work my way through to Season Nine, that’ll keep me occupied!
Has anyone seen One Tree Hill? Your thoughts?
