It’s been five years since basketball-loving teen Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray) first appeared on our TV screens. And to be quite honest, I haven’t seen a lot of him since – and for once, I won’t blame it on the network that screens the series here in Australia either (though it probably goes without saying that they do screw with the show; last I heard it was screening at some inane hour in the middle of the day!?). No, to be frank, I just never got into the show – and haven’t really watched it since it premiered. I always presumed it was quite good, if even based on how well it does -and after watching most of the episodes in this current season, am convinced it is – but just never got hooked on it like I did, say, similar-themed soaps like “Dawson’s Creek”. Maybe it was the basketball aspect of the series? Maybe because there was no Joey Potter? I really dunno.

Anyway, the fifth season has arrived on DVD, fans.

Lucas, as regular viewers of the show would know, is a fatherless (technically he does have a father, but both don’t want anything to do with one another) teenager with a serious heart condition, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) which he concealed for a long time. Lucas has managed to find happiness though – largely as a successful writer.

This season jumps four and a half years into the future (“Desperate Housewives” recently did the same). Lucas is a bestselling author dating his editor; Peyton is an unhappy assistant at a record label in LA; Brooke is the owner of a clothing line, and Haley and Nathan are in a strained marriage after Nathan was in an accident that left him temporarily paralyzed. Lucas also decides to settle down – and as the season comes to a close it’s revealed he’s proposed to someone. Who? Apparently we have to wait until the next season to find out.

I can see why people enjoy this show – they’re an interesting-enough bunch of characters. Will I watch it again? Nah.

Extras

Few bits and pieces that should interest the fans. Honestly, I never ventured past the menu listing so couldn’t tell you whether they’re worth your time or not.
