Now I’m an OC girl from way back (if by way back, you mean start of 2008) but when I was home recovering from my operation my friend Mal leant me One Tree Hill (OTH) season one dvds (and I’m going to her house for a season two marathon tomorrow :D). I started watching and was hooked before the end of the first disc. Not only does it have Chad Michael Murray for eye candy, it has just the right mix of humor, romance and depressing scenes. It’s just so good. And it’s into like it’s seventh or eighth series or something. What the OC could have done if Mischa hadn’t decided to quit (not that I’m complaining, I would have liked to see Marissa dead in season one).
What I’ve decided to do today is do a comparison of the different types of characters in both shows, showing the teen drama stereotypes that exist today.
‘Forever’ Couple – Seth and Summer (OC) Haley and Nathan (OTH)
Alco Teen – Marissa (OC) Brooke (OTH)
Love Interest – Ryan (OC) Lucas (OTH)
Best Friends – Summer and Marissa (OC) Brooke and Peyton (OTH)
Nerdy Girl Come Cool – Taylor (OC) Haley (OTH)
Divorced Parents – Jimmy and Julie (OC) Dan and Deb (OTH)
Bad Guy Come Good – Ryan (OC) Nathan (OTH)
Supportive Parents – Sandy and Kirsten (OC) Karen and Keith (though technically an uncle) (OTH)
There’s more, but I’ve recently learnt that the word ‘moving’ is synonymous for ‘cleaning’ so I must go and take down all the posters in my room (*tear*), so why don’t you leave me your thoughts, or just favourite characters from either or both, in the comments 🙂
