20 Early ’00s TV Shows That Were Way Ahead Of Their Time
One Tree Hill
One Tree Hill ran for an entire nine years from 2003 to 2012 and it was a full nine years of perfect drama. The show was set in North Carolina and was initially based on two brothers’ rivalry for positions on their school’s basketball team, and the complicated relationship dynamics surrounding them, their families, and friends. The show was pretty much a point of obsession for teenage girls all over America, and although it had some cheesy and problematic moments, it also shed light on issues like slut-shaming, fat-shaming, and bullying, using speech in the way we would to talk about those same things today. Can we please just rewatch it all over again?
