One Tree Hill, four years later

One Tree HillHow many of us wish we could just blur past four years of our lives as if they never happened? I know a couple people from college who did just that and aren't sure to this day if they ever attended college or not.

When the gang from One Tree Hill left us last year, they were finally graduating high school and heading off for college, with new babies and careers on the horizon for some. These are some pretty important and pivotal times in a young person's life, but when the CW drama returns with its two-hour premiere on January 8, 2008 according to Zap2It.com, it'll be four years later and these moments have passed.

How did the dust settle? A lot can happen in four years and a lot can change. Creator Mark Schwahn thought the jump forward in time was a good idea considering much of the "young" cast was looking too old to be just starting college. I ask, where was that kind of thinking when the "kids" of Beverly Hills, 90210 were pushing their walkers down the halls and having to leave class early to go pick up their grandkids from day care? There's such a thing as suspension of disbelief, but there's a line to be drawn, and I'm not talking about the half dozen or so lines that were on Luke Perry's nine inch forehead.

With the new status quo, viewers can look forward to finding out what happened with Lucas' book, Brooke's fashion career, the baby, Whitney's coaching job, Dan's prison term? Schwahn promises there will be peeks back in time with either flashbacks or entire episodes set during the missing period. Maybe when the new season opens, the camera shot will zoom out from someone's iris and we discover the entire cast has been transplanted to a mysterious island in the middle of nowhere, where they're hunted down by polar bears, smoke monsters and the cast of The O.C.

The return of One Tree Hill means that The CW will not be airing repeats of freshman series Reaper, but the show is scheduled to return with new episodes later in the season.

Jenn, Gilmore Girls was not canceled by the networks, the main actors on it didn't want to do the show anymore so they had to end it.

Wait?!? One Tree Hill is returning to the CW, but Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls are gone! What the crap is up with the CW and its programming choices?

I always just assumed that "One Tree Hill" took place in an alternative universe where the natural aging processes were completely different. Oh, and where everything sucked.

This is an interesting decision. Shame it's the only thing about the show that interests me.

I'm amazed how big of a trash show this is. They just graduated?! Meaning all the marriages and "deaths" and just pointless shit all happened in HIGH SCHOOL?!
