Since the new and final season of One Tree Hill is around the corner, all you fans out there might want to get reacquainted or catch up with Season 8, now on DVD. Not only will you be able to watch all 22 full episodes, but there’s also loads of bonus content just waiting for you to dive into, such as 3 all-new featurettes, two full-length commentaries, deleted scenes and a hilarious gag reel.
Personally, I always love watching the gag reels. Seeing how the actors mess up, laugh, and joke about it always puts me in a good mood and gives me a better sense of the actors themselves. It’s one thing to see them play their characters, and it’s another to see them actually enjoy playing those characters and interacting with their fellow cast members. It’s always hilarious to see how many takes they have to do for a particular scene, what exactly trips them up, how the other actors make fun of them, or when they curse at themselves for messing up the scene. If anything, it makes them seem more human, which sometimes we forget they are.
I also love the commentaries because you get to see their thoughts and opinions on certains scenes and episodes and how they dealt with things happening to their characters or the story in general. I love hearing what the producers, writers, directors think, why they went down a certain road, did this or that to a character, and stuff like that. The creative process is so important in making a show great and seeing all the behind-the-scenes action is one of my favorite parts of getting DVDs of TV shows.
I’m sure you all will enjoy watching the episodes, either for the first time or again, and the extra content will enhance your viewing pleasure and give you more of an insight in the world of One Tree Hill, which we all love.
For fans of One Tree Hill, the Eighth Season will definitely be one to own! Includes all 22 episodes on 5 discs plus all-new featurettes, commentaries, deleted scenes and gag reel on DVD: http://bit.ly/w2DhRu and Ultraviolet: http://bit.ly/rHfjEo
