The O.C. and One Tree Hill head to Soapnet tonight

Are you missing Seth Cohen or Nathan Scott? Or perhaps you’ve never heard of Chrismakkuh or Tree Hill High School?

If so, now is your chance to watch two outstanding series, The O.C. and One Tree Hill, from the beginning.

Both shows debut on SOAPnet tonight, Monday, April 9, so set your TiVos and VCRs. One Tree Hill will air at 5 p.m. EST Monday-Friday, followed by The O.C. at 6 p.m.

SOAPnet will show all four seasons of both shows. Can I get a “woo-hoo?”

If you’ve never watched either show, check them out and see what everyone has been talking about for the past few years. If you’ve seen the shows, but can’t remember the first time we met Ryan and his wife-beater tank or Lucas and his literary obsession, then don’t miss the debut tonight of two of the most fun dramas on the tube.

For those of you new to The O.C. and Tree Hill, here’s some background to get you started:

The O.C.A wealthy public defender takes in an abused kid from the streets of Chino. The move forever changing the lives of Sandy Cohen’s friends and family, who live in the affluent, oceanside Newport Beach community. Cohen’s “adorkable” son, Seth, quickly bonds with Ryan as a brother. The beautiful girl next door, Marissa, also takes an interest in the new guy in town, much to the chagrin of her water-polo playing boyfriend. Throw in some family love, teen angst, beautiful people and fun pop-culture references, and this drama has humor, heart and soul that shouldn’t be missed. The show stars Peter Gallagher, Kelly Rowan, Ben McKenzie, Mischa Barton, Adam Brody, Melinda Clarke, Rachel Bilson, Tate Donovan, Autumn Reeser, Willa Holland, Alan Dale and Chris Carmack.

One Tree Hill — In a small North Carolina town, (that looks suspiciously like Dawson’s Capseside,) two estranged half brothers carry on very different lives. Basketball prodigy Nathan Scott has inherited the throne of high-school popularity once held by his father, Dan. While Lucas Scott, also a talented player, stays an outsider. Spending nights shooting hoops on a riverfront court, Lucas remains the son Dan never acknowledged. Now, Lucas and Nathan's paths intersect for the first time, and in the crossroads stands Peyton Sawyer, Nathan's beautiful, edgy girlfriend who just may have more in common with Lucas. Throw in the quiet animosity between Dan and his brother, Keith, along with Lucas' mother, Karen — all of whom must cope with the aftermath of their choices—and something has to give. The show has some great literary references, too, as Lucas often shares quotes from his favorite writers. One Tree Hill stars Chad Michael Murray, James Lafferty, Hilarie Burton, Bethany Joy Galeotti, Paul Johansson, Sophia Bush, Barbara Alyn Woods, Lee Norris, Barry Corbin, Craig Sheffer and Moira Kelly.

Thanks for the reminder, Jen! I'll definitely tune in. I didn't get in board with OTH until season 2 and I missed the first few episodes of The O.C.
