Episode 7.03 Recap/Review

I have to say that I loved Monday night’s episode of One Tree Hill. I think this season just keeps getting better and better. However, we still haven’t heard why Leyton decided to move away, or when the left, and a lot of you want to know. I really want to know, as well. I’m sure we will all find out soon. Anyway, let’s talk about 7.03, shall we?

Alex/Millie/Brooke

I have to say that I think she is a huge bitch. Who does she think she is staying out all night long when she knows she has a photo shoot to get to. Better yet, who does she think she is flirting with Julian like that when she knows that he is Brooke’s boyfriend. And what the heck was the comment about “Your too old for him.” Seriously? They look to be about the same age! But I love how Brooke puts her in her place and tells her who’s boss. Same with Millie. I love how she brings up the money every time Alex does something stupid, to let her know that they aren’t going to mess around with her. I liked their bar scene together. I can see them being friends in the future. I really can’t stand Alex right now, though, but I think there is more to her. Brooke was a huge bitch in season one and now look at her. I hated her then and now she is my favorite character. And who didn’t see Alex hooking up with Clay? They are so perfect for each other! [[“I’m a slut.”]] Ya got that right, Alex!

Skills/Jamie

I love these two together. They have such a great friendship. I love how everyone always goes to Jamie when they have a problem and Jamie tells it like it is. Skills was a huge baby when he saw that iguana, but it was hilarious! [[“What about that thing” “His name is Percy and he eats bugs and stuff.”]] I wonder how much longer this little charade is going to last between Skills and Mouth. I’d like to see him movie in with Miss Lauren.

Rachel/Dan

So we got to see how their “relationship” started. Of course she was the stripper at the club that Dan was at.  Which totally disgusted me out, by the way. I wonder how long it took her to blow that money that she stole from Brooke? I also wonder if everyone knows that she is back in town and if they know about her and Dan’s marriage. A marriage, that by the way is a not really about love. She has a pretty good idea, though. Marry him because he’s going to die soon. That’s if he ever dies. I’m beginning to think he’s never going to die. I still can’t get over the fact that he has his own talk show and that people actually watch it. I find Dan to be very irritating this season. More so than before.

Nathan/Haley

I’m so glad that Haley is standing by Nathan’s side and she’s not letting that bitch Renee get what she wants, Nathan’s money. I loved her little speech to Clay. It’s exactly what he needed to hear because I’m beginning to think that sometimes he doesn’t keep in mind Haley and Jamie when he’s throwing parties for Nathan and what not. I just feel so bad for Jamie, but I’m glad that Nathan went to go tell him the truth, because he needs to know before he finds out somewhere else.

I’m so pumped for next week. Bitchtoria is back. Is this the season of bitches or what? And I can’t wait to see how Jamie reacts to the news of his father.

Until next week!

One Tree Hill on Trending Topics

For those of you that are on Twitter, last week Christy-Anne over at OTH Twitter Bugs, started getting people to hashtag One Tree Hill so we can start getting it on Trending Topics every Monday.

This Monday we had no prevail, and I was tweeting like crazy, I even went over my limit for the first time ever, but we are going to continue doing this.

So if your wondering, “What the heck is a trending topic?”…well a trending topic is the most keywords being discussed on Twitter. You can find them at the bottom of the page, when your getting ready to log on, or you can find them to the right hand side of the page, after you log on. Sometimes there is a hashtag in front, which puts the tag into groups, or sometimes there is no hashtag.

So every Monday, make sure you use #onetreehill as much as possible to get it up on the trending topics. We need like 75 tweets an hour, with #onetreehill, to even be considered for a spot on the trending topic list. But, don’t just use it on Mondays, use is during the week, as much as possible, as well. We need to get the point across to other fans on Twitter, so spread the word!

So remember, anytime during the week, when you are talking about One Tree Hill, make sure to use #onetreehill so it gets put into a group, which you can search for, and more people will know and start doing it also. On Monday, however, use it as much as possible, so we can get it on Trending Topics. Use it especially during the episode and after the episode, when you are discussing it. But let’s be considerate of the people that aren’t watching it or can’t watch it, try not to use spoilers.

Just remember to use #onetreehill as much as possible during the week, and especially on Monday’s. If more and more people get the idea then we will make it on Trending Topics in no time, so make sure to spread the word!

SOTW: Strays Don’t Sleep- For Blue Skies

I apologize for this week’s featured One Tree Hill song being a couple days late but I’ve been having some technical problems with my laptop and the internet this week, and I’ve been busy getting ready for some exams.

Anyway, this week’s song is Stray’s Don’t Sleep- For Blue Skies. I chose this song last night while I was in bed watching season 3 episode 9, “How A Resurrection Really Feels.”

For Blue Skies plays during the ending montage of scenes where Haley goes to talk to Nathan and ends up staying the night and Brooke gives Lucas her letters and they end up finally getting together. I think it’s the perfect song for this montage.

What do you guys think?

To hear the song just click the box to the right and for lyrics and the official music video for For Blue Skies, click the song of the week box above.

Enjoy!

Episode 7.02: Recap and Review

So I think its safe to say that last night was a crazy episode for One Tree Hill. However, I don’t know about you guys, but I loved it. Some of you are still missing Leyton, but I still think its a good show without them. I’m sure there could have been more storylines with them but after last season the only thing we probably would have been seeing is them adjusting to married life and being parents. There probably would have been no drama with those two, and well, One Tree Hill is a drama, and this season I know there will be a lot of it. I mean, there is plenty of drama already.

So speaking of drama, lets talk about last night’s:

Dan/Rachel:

Dan and Rachel had the first big shock of the night! They’re MARRIED!? Obviously this happened during the 14 months of the show that we didn’t see. But, when…and more importantly, WHY? Why did Dan and Rachel get married? Because from the looks of it she doesn’t love him, and he probably isn’t in love with her either. It looks to me is that they both are using each other. Her for his money, and him for publicity..maybe? I guess we’ll find out, and I hope that its soon! And has Dan really changed this time? I’m not so sure. I think he was doing that whole, talk to the homeless guy thing, for publicity. I mean, why else would Rachel take a picture of them? But then again, Rachel wasn’t around to take a picture the second time we went to talk to the homeless guy. So who knows? I know one thing…that whole talk show thing is already starting to annoy me. I do not like voice overs from Dan. That is one thing I miss from Lucas, his voice overs.

What do you guys think of Rachel being back in Tree Hill and being married to Dan? And do you think Dan has really changed?

Haley:

All I can say is…GO HALEY!! She totally showed that bitch who was boss! [[“Who’s the bitch now!? Bitch!]] It was also good to see Mia come back into the picture. I hope we see more of her. And that impersonation of Lucas and Peyton was priceless! Very funny!!

Brooke/Julian:

I fall in love with Bruilan more and more. They are such an amazing couple and they are so in love. I did feel really bad for Brooke when Julian was talking about how they weren’t getting married, only moving in together. I’m sure after some more time together, he will change his mind! But I love how Brooke called his dad stood up for him. And of course his dad doesn’t remember that special day they had together. Go figure!

Alex:

Seriously!? What is up with this girl! She is totally two-faced for one, and for two, she is really stupid! But even though she is all those things, she is a pretty damn good actress. Using that line from her movie, about the dress on Brooke right when Brooke was about to not use her for the line…what a bitch move! And what the heck was up with her whole “I don’t wear purple.” She is Brooke’s employee and she will wear whatever Brooke tells her to wear. Besides, that dress was really pretty! I really hope this girl gets a reality check soon!

Jamie/Skills:

Looks like Mouth and Skills are still on their “naked” thing. I thought it was hilarious last episode and it’s still hilarious now! Although, I was a bit disappointed to not see Mouth in this episode. But it was really cute when Jamie and Skills were talking about it in the car and “kept their cool” when Miss Lauren got in the car. I also thought it was hilarious when Jamie left them buried in the sand! Too funny! And I just loved Jamie when he mentioned Nanny Carrie and the leash that Skills once put him on. That kid is just too cute!

And last but not least…

Nathan/Clay:

I wanted to strangle this bitch by her neck, through the television! I honestly believe that Nathan would not cheat on Haley, even if he had been drinking. When Clay mentioned that they were pretty wasted, Nathan was just like “yeah, I guess,” like he was really drunk but he wasn’t drunk enough to black out and not remember sleeping with someone else. And I do not think that Renee’s child is Nathan’s. I think she slept with someone else at the party and is just trying to pin it on Nathan. Who knows, maybe it’s even Clay’s baby. He seems to be the person that would black out a lot and sleep with a ton of girls. But at least Nathan told Haley the situation.

What do you guys thing? Do you think Nathan cheated on Haley and is now going to be the father of this woman’s child?

Although, Nathan claims that he didn’t do what the woman is claiming he did, at least Haley is standing by him, which is the way it should be. I’m excited to see more of this story unfold next week.

Until next week!

Season 7 Premiere Recap and Discussion

Season 7 has finally begun and I know that I’m super excited about it! I’ve asked what you guys were most excited for and thank you to all that has sent me a reply on Twitter.

You guys were most excited to see some Brulian. I know that I was really excited for both of those things, and still am. I think they are an amazing couple and are so cute together! Even though I have always been a Brucas fan, I’m so glad that Brooke has finally found true love. And I about died when she wrote “Marry Me” in the sand. It’s a little soon, I think, but it would be amazing to watch a wedding between them.

The thing that I was the most excited to see was Naley. We saw a lot of them during season 6 in the beginning, but not so much toward the end. I’m excited to see how the whole cheating scandal plays out. I about threw something at the television when that random girl showed up saying that Nathan slept with her on the road. I don’t think he did it, what do you guys think? He doesn’t seem the person to get drunk and not remember, that was the old Nate, so what other explanation is there?

I also know a lot of you are a little slow in warming up to the new characters, and that is understandable. It’s not like all the new characters are there to replace the friendship between Lucas, Peyton, and the rest of the group. It’s not like they are all random people they suddenly became friends with over the last 14 months. I’m sure in time we will grow to like these new characters. It is kind of disappointing that they didn’t really explain why Lucas and Peyton left, but we have to have faith in Mark and we have to have faith that he will make this season as great as the others.

One thing that I thought was really random is Dan having his own talk show. Like, do theses people not know who he is and know that he murdered his brother? It just seems odd to me. What do you guys think?

But I loved this premiere episode. I loved Jamie’s cuteness and Skills and Mouth’s nakedness. I’m also excited for tonight’s episode. I’m excited for Rachel to come back, and I really want to know what is going to happen between Nathan and Haley.

SO FOR A NEW DISCUSSION: What are you looking forward to this season? What do you want to see more of? What did you like, not like, about the season 7 premiere?

Sorry, for such a short post, but like I’ve said before, school keeps me busy. But I will try harder to post things on time and such. I’ll try be back tomorrow with a recap/review of episode 2.

Song of the Week: FOB- Dance, Dance

If you have read the last post, regarding my lack of posting, you will know why I didn’t post anything last week, including a song of the week. I apologize, but I’ve been very busy with school.

With that said, I do have a song for you this week.

This week’s song of the week is Fall Out Boy- Dance, Dance.

Fall Out Boy has been featured many times on the show, performed twice at Tric, and Fall Out Boy guitarist Pete Wenz has even been a guest star on the show, playing himself.

Dance, Dance was featured in episode 3.04, during the Halloween party at Tric, when Fall Out Boy performed. This is the only time that this song has been featured in the show, but Fall Out Boy has been featured several other times in season 3, as well as once in season 5 and once in season 6. Fall Out Boy has even been featured on the second One Tree Hill Soundtrack: Friends With Benefit.

Here is a video of Fall Out Boy performing their hit song, Dance, Dance, on One Tree Hill.

For lyrics and the official video just click the Song of the Week box above. You can also listen to the song in the Box to the right.

If you have any suggestions for a song of the week, just leave a comment.

Enjoy!

Regarding the Lack of Posting

Hello fellow One Tree Hill fans! I just wanted to leave a post regarding my lack of posting this past week.

As some of you may know, if you follow me on Twitter, that school has started for me. I’m taking 19 credit hours to try and catch up. Therefore I have a lot of reading to do for my classes and a lot of studying to do. This past week I’ve been trying to catch up on my reading for my online classes and I’ve been preparing for a test in just about every subject. Last week I had three tests to study for and this week I have two.

Since I was very busy with all of that last week I didn’t get around to putting up a song of the week or anything on the season seven premiere. Since this week will be a little bit less hectic I will try and get around to doing all of that this week. I’ve also downloaded a WordPress application to my Blackberry that hopefully will help me out.

Another reason why I haven’t posted much lately is the fact that I have been feeling pretty down about the fact that I haven’t gotten a lot of traffic in like a month and that really upsets me. You don’t need to leave a comment, but I’d just like to know that someone is at least reading what I write so I know that at least someone else gets enjoyment out of all this.

So please, leave a comment on this post letting me know if you enjoy this blog, are a regular reader, or you at least check in from time to time when you get a chance to do so. Either that or leave me a comment or direct message on Twitter (@gamesthatplayus). I would really appreciate it and it would really make me happy 🙂

For those of you that do take the time to read my posts, THANK YOU!! I started this blog to chat with other One Tree Hill fans and to express my thoughts on why I love this show as much as I do and I would love to hear your thoughts in return!

This is what you have to look forward to this week:

A new song of the week…if you have any suggestions please don’t hesitate to let me know!

My thoughts on what I’m looking forward to this season…even though the season has already started I would still love to know what you are looking forward to or what questions you want answered this season.

A review/recap of season 7’s premiere episode…a little late, but better late than never right? Plus it will be a good way to catch up for those of you who missed it. (But I don’t know why you would miss it! ;))

And…

a new discussion…what you did, and did not like, from the season 7 premiere…

…The Games That Play Us xo
