    Watching Hart of Dixie is like mainlining praline. Your mind will rot before your teeth do.

    This CW show is so silly and lightweight it might possess unexpected appeal for its sheer camp factor, as well as the opportunity to see the South depicted as a place as exotic as the dark side of the moon.

    The smart way to go would be to turn this mess into a savvy comedy, but that may be asking too much.

    Meryl Streep would have trouble making Gerstein's never-been-there, never-done-that creation sound anything but ludicrous.

    What follows is a silly, youth-oriented CW drama packaged as a fish-out-of-water yarn.

    What demotes it from a C to a D is some of the laziest plot setups ever, as well as the dumbing down of "Friday Night Lights" alums Porter and Cress Williams.

    Funny and talented, she [Rachel Bilson] tries painfully hard to make the show work and occasionally comes close to overcoming some of the worst writing since Gutenberg invented movable type.

    Hart of Dixie is basically "Northern Exposure" dumbed down to a nanoscopic scale.

    This is no Gilmore Girls or Northern Exposure. The writing is bad and Rachel, as much as I loved her in the OC is playing pretty much the same type of character here, except...she is a Doctor which really doesn't work.

The shoe doesn't have the best writing, but there's still time to improvement, so this is the one to watch, however there's only so much more time before the show is endangered if it doesn't improve. Jaime King however was destesable in her role of Lemon Breeland. Full Review »

    There are not a lot of non "reality" shows that have southern roots. This is a fun, romantic with just the right amount of drama show. IThere are not a lot of non "reality" shows that have southern roots. This is a fun, romantic with just the right amount of drama show. I really hope they keep it. It would be such a shame to lose such a great show on the lineup with such a unique story line. Full Review »
