One Tree Hill, WB/CW, streaming on Netflix
You know that there’s a sappy teen deep down inside you, so get ready to fire up old episodes of One Tree Hill. Though later episodes weren’t nearly as focused on the basketball drama, this series began with a classic setup. The star basketball player feels his status is threatened by his half-brother (from the wrong side of the tracks) and the tension deepens when a love interest gets involved.
There’s nothing wrong with going the nostalgic route here, plus the original theme song was by Gavin DeGraw, one of the stars performing during VH1’s Super Bowl Blitz!
