This piece was written during the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strikes. We stand with the SAG-AFTRA. Without them, the movies and television shows we cover would not exist.
We’ve been One Tree Hill fans for quite sometime and right now we’re wishing that we still had our One Tree Hill DVD’s. Yes, we were stupid and we got rid of them because we were like who needs them, there is streaming.
Take our advice, you don’t ever want to get ride of the DVD’s.
With WGA and SAG-AFTRA on strike, it’s one of those things, where we wish that we had all of the DVD’s that we hadn’t gotten or had given up. Especially our One Tree Hill DVD’s.
But that’s a personal choice for us, because with all the news out there on residuals, we feel like watching streamers isn’t supporting our favorite cast. Instead it’s just supporting the wallets of people that it shouldn’t.
“Now we are no strangers to pushing back against imbalances and abuses of power — it is the very basis of our podcast here,” Hilarie said, “We’re reclaiming a really pivotal chapter in our lives.”
But reclaiming that chapter may have to be put on hold for a bit because of the strike. You see actors are not allowed to promote their current or past projects. While the girls have been given the go ahead to honor their iHeart Radio contracts for now, the future of some podcasts does hang in the balance for now.
“We’re in full support of the strike as well as the writer’s strike, and we’ve checked in personally with multiple representatives and have had our teams do the same so that we maintain an active line of communication,” Sophia shared.
For now, the girls are treating the podcast, “as a walk down memory lane in an old school way” said Joy Lenz. They also, “encourage you to do the same.”
Joy Lenz continued, “Bust out those DVDs, OK? We’ve signed thousands of box sets, so we know you have them. Get together with friends and have watch parties like we did back in the day.”
We wish we had saved ours. We’re going to have to find a new set.
