YouTube Video of the Week

31 05 2009

In January, one of my YouTube Video of the Weeks was a One Tree Hill video about Leyton, set to Celine Dion’s “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now.”

It was one of the best videos I’ve seen any for teen drama couple, let alone Leyton.

I recently found a Brucas video set to the same song and, in the interest of fairness, the video is below.

Despite Leyton’s marriage, we all know the Brucas vs. Leyton debate rages on.  I don’t really mean to add fuel to the fire, but I do think it’s interesting to look at both videos as they have a lot of similarities.


James Lafferty on One Tree Hill

30 05 2009

“My contract ended at the end of season 6, and choose between signing a contract for two years or continue your career, it is the decision of a lifetime. Especially at this time.  I would not doubt that there was rather a reflection on what was best for me. And I am confident of the fact that I made the right decision.”

“For me, the relationship between Lucas / Peyton is one of the bases of the series and remains the common thread of the first season…Lucas has always loved Peyton, and he is faced with this choice. As a viewer, I loved to see that.”

“It’s impossible for me to say that I have learned nothing from Nathan, but it is also difficult to describe what he gave me. I saw him through so much, and now be a good father and good husband.. It’s hard not to learn to be the best man possible. It is, moreover, [what] Nathan tries to do constantly.”

  • Candy Spelling, mother of Tori (Donna, Beverly Hills 9021o) is reportedly blaming the death of husband Aaron Spelling (the creator of BH90210) on Tori’s decision to alienate the family from her life.  Candy has since clarified her original statements a bit via The Huffington Post.

Teen Dramas: The Evaluation

28 05 2009

Based on the responses to the polls for each series, we’re now going to have a championship round of sorts.

I’d like to know where you guys stand on the current teen dramas–who tops your list when all three current shows are compared together.

Please vote in the following by Sunday evening!

Question: Any news on the CW drama Body Politic? Will it be picked up for mid-season? –Corinne
It won’t. But I keep hearing rumors that one of the show’s stars may find work on another high-profile CW drama. If it happens, and all of my sources insist it probably won’t, it would create quite the hububaloo.

Question: Why did The CW kill the Gossip Girl spin-off? –Tammy
I’m told the higher-ups never embraced the whole ’80s conceit. I’m also told the reason CW boss Dawn Ostroff stopped short of declaring the project dead last week was because there’s a chance it could be reconceived down the road.


Note: I think the first question is referring to whether Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) will appear on the new 90210.

  • Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210) told Access Hollywood that she suffers from a heart condition, but isn’t serious right now.  Garth has advocated for the American Heart Association in the past.
  • The One Tree Hill Season 6 DVD will be released on August 25.
  • Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) was one of the many stars at an anti-Prop 8 rally in Los Angeles last night.
  • The supposed Mark Schwahn (creator, One Tree Hill), James Lafferty (Nathan, One Tree Hill) and Bethany Joy Gaelotti (Haley, One Tree Hill) Twitter accounts are fake. The OTH Twitter Bugs site is providing a really great service!
  • It’s been confirmed that Mischa Barton (Marissa, The O.C.) has a Twitter account.

Any scoop on Gossip Girl‘s Season 3? — F.R.
MICKEY: Speaking with at the CW upfronts, Leighton Meester seemed to confirm that Georgina’s plan to weasel her way into Blair’s life will be successful, as Blair will be living — gasp! — in an NYU dorm, with the little people! Including possibly both G. and V.! (Don’t worry, Dorota fans; she’ll still be on hand to tend to her “Miss Blair.”)

One Tree Hill: The Evaluation Results

27 05 2009

This poll had the most interesting results out of all three shows only because you guys didn’t follow the directions too well.  For almost every question, people put in things for ‘other’ that didn’t even take place during this season.  Remember, guys, I said to vote on this season only.

Because there were so many crazy votes (and a few of them made me laugh), I’m going to organize this results summary differently than the others ones.  I will list the winners, some of the answers you guys wrote-in, some of the invalid answers (i.e. not eligible because it wasn’t from this season) you wrote-in and my thoughts.  I think it will be much clearer this way, since there is so much I want to share.


Winners: Brooke, Lucas

Noteworthy Others: Julian

Invalid Others: Keith, Chris Keller, Fake Derek…and Chuck Bass?

Thoughts: Brooke beat by Peyton by only 2 votes.  The percentages were 37.5 versus 37.0.  Ridiculously close!  Julian getting a decent number of votes bodes well for next season when he’s a regular.


Winner: Lucas & Peyton

Invalid Others: Brooke & Lucas, Brooke & Nathan…and Brooke and Rachel?

Thoughts: Not surprising considering their huge following, and that Brucas wasn’t an option.  Naley wasn’t too far behind.


Winners: Peyton, Lucas

Noteworthy Others: Victoria, Millie, Nanny Carrie, Gigi and “Kate Buy-My-CD Voegele”; Chase, Owen, Dan, Dixon, Nick Lachey

Invalid Others: Bevin, Nikki, Lindsey, Anna; Felix, Derek, Tim, Chris

Thoughts: I know there are a lot of Leyton haters out there, and a lot of people love Brooke, Haley and Nathan individually so I guess this result kind of makes sense.  I’m, of course, disappointed since Peyton and Lucas are my fave.


Winner: Brooke & Owen

Noteworthy Others: Mia & Chase, Skills & Lauren, Mouth & Millie, Skills & Deb

Invalid Others: Lucas & Anna, Bevin & Tim, Rachel & Cooper

Thoughts: There was a lot of Browen love last season…and then Julian came around so I understand why this won.


Winner: Jamie

Noteworthy Others: Julian (who I should’ve included as one of the options)

Invalid Others: Rachel

Thoughts: All the choices got a vote except for Nino and Mick.  I thought that was pretty interesting.  There were some that I didn’t think were going to get any votes.


Winner: Karen

Noteworthy Others: Chase

Invalid Others: Rachel, Jake

Thoughts: Karen won by the largest majority seen in any of the OTH polls–57%.  Gigi actually got 5 votes.  Who are you people?


Winner: Leyton’s relationship

Noteworthy Others: Brooke’s relationship with Sam, Nathan’s comeback

Invalid Others: Peyton’s stalker, Brucas relationship, Naley’s season 5 split, the school shooting

Thoughts: The top three vote-getters weren’t surprising since they were the main stories of the season.


Winner: Nanny Carrie’s return

Noteworthy Others: Skills & Deb relationship, Dan’s heart getting eaten, Millie-Mouth-Gigi triangle, Peyton’s pregnancy

Invalid Others: Brucas relationship, Lucas & Lindsey, Rachel, Peyton’s drug storyline, “Trick question…I see right through you”

Thoughts: The top vote-getters were all fair answers, I think, even though I did like the Peyton pregnancy storyline.


Winner: Peyton’s health scare(s)

Noteworthy Others: Brooke’s attack, Quentin’s death, Sam with Quentin’s killer, Season 6 finale

Invalid Others: Season 3 finale, school shooting, Season 5 finale

Thoughts: Knowing that the Peyton health scares were coming, I’m more torn between Brooke’s attack and the Q stuff.  Both were a lot more stunning and emotional.


Winner: 8

Thoughts: Every single value got a vote–that means some of you (12 total, to be exact) thought this season was only worth a 1 or a 2!  10 came in second but with only 22% of the vote.  This one was very spread out.


Winner: 10

Thoughts: The only one of the three dramas to get a perfect score! It had the majority with 53% of the vote but, again, all values were voted for.  For those of you that rated the show a 4 or lower…why are you even watching? Or participating in this poll?


(Even if you didn’t follow the directions! =P)
