Long Live One Tree Hill

I was in desperate need for my heartstrings to be pulled, tears to be shed, and laughs to be had. I turned to One Tree Hill and Lucas, Nathan, Peyton and Haley. 8 wonderful seasons of heartbreak and relationships, family drama and marriage, and life after graduation.

If you’ve never seen One Tree Hill, here’s a quick synopsis for you:

Lucas and Nathan have the same dad, but different moms.

Nathan and Peyton are dating.

Brooke doesn’t like to settle down.

Lucas and Haley are BFF’s.

(Fast forward)

Nathan and Haley get married.

Lucas and Peyton date.

Brooke has twins.

 

Well then, that escalated rather quickly. Want details? Go binge it for yourself. I guarantee you won’t regret it.

Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte

I never thought in a million years that I would enjoy binge watching Sex and the City. To me, it was always this ridiculous show about 4 women living in idealistic Manhattan talking about sex 24/7.

 

I wasn’t wrong.

 

But it’s also so much more than that.

At first I was a little hesitant to begin watching it, but being sick in bed and fresh out of ideas for new shows to binge, SJP popped into my head. So I went on Amazon Video, and there it was, all 6 seasons. I started, and haven’t been able to stop since.

Although we like to reminisce about theĀ 90’s, my generation doesn’t actually remember anything from then. And also considering today’s video quality, I thought that the fact that Sex and the City wasn’t in HD 1080p would bother me. On the contrary, actually. I enjoyed every minute of the old school look and feel of the production, the set, and even the fashion.

Carrie, Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte are 4 best friends that live in the city, and also happen to be strong, independent, working, and successful (not so young) women. Each woman is trying to fulfill her respective definition of love. Each woman has her own personality and ideas on love, and somehow they each manage to give each other advice on achieving that happy ending.

The show has made me laugh, it’s made me cry, and it’s opened my eyes to what life was like when I was only 3 years old (I mostly appreciated that Carrie drank Starbucks and I got to see what the cups looked like in 1998).

I’m excited to finish the series, and as far as I can tell, it’s a show worth recommending.
