Rachel Bilson (The O.C.) leads a stellar ensemble cast in this fish-out-of-water comedic drama about small-town living, big-city attitudes and complicated love triangles. Aspiring heart surgeon Dr. Zoe Hart (Bilson) must take a job as a general practitioner to secure an important fellowship the following year. Offered a position by a mysterious southern country doctor, this lifelong New Yorker packs her bags, slips on her stilettos and leaves Manhattan for life in BlueBell, Alabama - where no one has ever seen the likes of Dr. Zoe Hart. Zoe feels the culture shock of her new surroundings immediately, but in the South, things aren't always as they seem… and Zoe might just discover she belongs in this town more than she ever could have imagined. Jaime King, Wilson Bethel, Cress Williams, Tim Matheson and Scott Porter also star.]]>

This show will make you smile and have you rooting for Zoey as she tries to navigate life in a small southern town and deal with the attentions of the perfect man (George - he is my pick for Zoey) and the hot but destined to go nowhere bad boy (Wade). If you like chick lit or romantic comedies then you will love Hart of Dixie!
This is a soap opera that's done light-handed. The show is interesting and the casting is well done and the characters are mostly a mixture of likable, charming, and quirky.
The main character (Zoe Hart) is a driven NY surgeon with a bit of tunnel vision and while she excels as a surgeon her people skills are sadly lacking. Because of this lack of people skills, her career game plan gets blown off track and she finds herself accepting an offer in an old-fashioned small Alabama town. She's the outsider and it's all uphill as she starts off with mistake after mistake - and being a small town, she's constantly under the grapevine magnifying glass. Fortunately she has a few people on her side, and little by little - episode by episode she is growing personally and professionally and also becoming part of this small, community complete with gators on the loose.
It's interesting in all kinds of quirky ways, and the love interests are all messed up and you have to wonder if, when and how things are going to work out -- and while there are some hot chemistry moments, they have (so far) managed to keep us from having to watch semi-porn.
For some reason this is labeled as comedy and I don't see it as such. It's more of a charming light drama, or soap. I guess you just have to see it for yourself - chances are it'll have you hooked quickly too. It's well done.
I would definitely recommend this show for anyone who loves a good small town comedy or romance shows. It will keep you laughing and then drive you crazy when you have to have to wait till next week to see what is going to happen next. It is definitely a guilty pleasure watch, not something to be taken seriously. But if you are looking for a tv show that will let you escape for a while, and leave you feeling happy then this is your show!!
Big names aside, Hart of Dixie is really creator Leila Gerstein's baby. Gerstein is known for her previous work on The O.C., too, having written the hilarious season-four episode "The Metamorphosis," to much acclaim. Many fans will be delighted to hear that Gerstein has put the word "Ew!" back in the mouth of Bilson's character (a phrase made famous by her O.C. alter ego Summer Roberts). In a genius bit of casting, Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights) gets back on his feet as the Hottie of Dixie, and he proves that he is leading man material. Cress Williams brings even more Friday Night Lights alumni flavor to the ensemble.
The concept of the show is recycled and straightforward, but who wants fresh when familiar tastes just as sweet? Zoe Hart has her life under control; she is on her way to becoming a heart-surgeon (awww, cute pun) until her fellow med-student boyfriend dumps her (GASP!). Newly single, she rips a page out of Elle Woods's memoir and embarks on a journey of self-discovery. She ventures into the heart of Dixie (oh, now I get it) to take over a dead guy's practice.Read more ›
