I know this show was probably created for the typical teenybopper CW audience and no, I am not their audience but I decided to check it out anyway. I was surprised by how light, funny and charming this show is! It doesn't make you think or teach you anything but pair this show with a glass of wine and a carton of Chinese food and it is the perfect antidote to a crappy week for the professional woman.

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!

I'm hooked. For me, this is almost as good as Gilmore Girls, and as good as Northern Exposure was (remember that one?)

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.

This show has got me hooked right now. I never gave it a chance until I saw it on TV one day at work. It was a very slow day at work and I was flipping through the channels and saw a very cute girl(Zoe), I remembered her from Jumper which she was great in. And I thought I would give the show a shot. I'm glad I did. You will love this show, give it a try its addictive as hell!

This Hart of Dixie dvd set was put together beautifully. Each disk is a different color and there is an inside paper that gives you a summary of each episode. Before each episode on the disk you get "a previously on hart of dixie", so even if someone is coming into it in the middle they will be caught up quickly. I was very impressed with this dvd series set. It was beautifully done. I would recommend this to anyone. This show will capture your heart. I even got my father and mother hooked on this series! They keep asking me when is the second season coming out. HAHA. Hurry up and buy this you wont be disappointed! :)

The CW's new series, Hart of Dixie, has a lineup of stars, producers, and writers that will make any fan of the teen drama genre swoon. For those of us who have worn out their DVD seasons of The O.C. to the point of being unplayable, Rachel Bilson's return to television is more glorious than the second coming. Put her in a production with Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage's (The O.C., Gossip Girl) names attached, and it dunks the show into a deep fryer of indulgent pleasure. It seems the production team had this in mind when creating the color palette for the show; everything (including Bilson) is country fried a warm golden brown.

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. A big fish in a little pond, Zoe faces a future battling southern belles in hoop skirts (the queen of which is portrayed winningly by Jamie King) and running from pet alligators.

The country music soundtrack is charming and germane to the world of Bluebell, Alabama. The show, like its setting, is simple and intimate, calling to mind shows like One Tree Hill and ABC's short-lived October Road. Bilson's voice-over narration sounds a lot like Lauren's commentary on The Hills, which lends the show a current, hip (ugh, the word "hip" is so un-hip) quality. Hart's profession brings the satisfying elements of a workplace drama to the otherwise quaint and character-driven affair. Hart of Dixie doesn't give the instant gratification of something like Gossip Girl in its pilot episode, but all of the seeds of a great guilty pleasure are planted; watching them grow might be best left for a TV on DVD binge once the series is in full swing.

Okay, so this isn't exactly Emmy material but this show has so much heart it makes up for everything it lacks. The characters are all so funny and unique it's perfect! It has the same feeling as Gilmore Girls, but obviously does the romance so much better. When this show first came out, I was not interested; but my fiance is a huge Rachel Bilson fan after the OC so we started watching it. It has now become my all time favorite show, as I love the small town feel with the awesome townspeople always coming together and getting in each others business. I love the relationships between Zoe, Lemon, Lavon, George, Wade, and everyone else. I feel like the cast has fun together and it shows on screen. I am definitely rooting for Wade and Zoe to get together! There are rarely dull moments on the show, and every new person they introduce is interesting and never seems forced.

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!!

During this past summer, the family and I made a trip out to Warner Brother's Studios. We enjoyed a VIP tour of several studio sets including one which we were not familiar with - Hart of Dixie. The tour guide described the set as Lemon's living room and Mayor Lavon Hayes' kitchen and rec room. When the tour guide asked if anyone was familiar with this new series, there was dead silence from the small group of tourists. I actually did have a valid excuse for not being familiar with the series since I've lived overseas for several years and didn't have the opportunity to watch it. After the trip I decided to give the series a try and instantly liked it. I purchased Season I in HD through Amazon's Instant Videos and enjoyed every episode. I enjoy the small town setting of Bluebell, Alabama and especially like actress Rachel Bilson as Dr. Zoe Hart and how she interacts with all the other characters. I've been a fan of actress Rachel Bilson since she appeared on the hit series Chuck. Now that I'm a fan of the show, I feel fortunate to have had the unique opportunity to actually visit the set and to say I've been there, when I watch every episode. Would definitely recommend Hart of Dixie.

This show is set in the south. It has a great cast, with some really interesting clothing. All the girls in our house love this show and can't wait for the next time its on. You should check it out.

I just happen to see this show on my Netflix and decided to check it out. I spent the whole day watching one episode after another, it's that addictive! I love Wade and Zoe together. And the rest of the cast is great too!
