I am usuallly a bit skeptical of crossover episodes (unless they involve Steve Urkel coming onto Full House, or Taj Mowry coming onto Full House — basically if it involves Full House, I’m okay with it), especially of a show I love SO much and one I don’t really watch. However, I never doubt Liz Tigelaar though, and this week’s Life Unexpected/One Tree Hill crossover is a treat. The way it is handled makes total sense in context of the story and at no point did I feel it compromised the quality of Life Unexpected, in fact, quite the opposite. The basic premise is that K100 (the radio station that Cate and Ryan work for) is having a big outdoor concert. Who performs at this outdoor concert? “One Tree Hill” characters Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) plays a producer who gets on stage as well and Mia (Kate Voegele). But that’s not all! Ben Lee, Sarah McLachlan and Rain Perry (the singer/songwriter of the Life Unexpected theme song) all perform, and their music weaves perfectly into the storylines.
