**** The Hart of Dixie airs on The CW which is on Channel 27 on Columbus Insight Communications and Channel 13 for Columbus Time Warner Customers ****
One show I just wasn’t looking forward to (and considering I don’t care for CW shows usually that says a lot) was The Hart of Dixie. I just didn’t hear anything about it. I didn’t hear about who was in it either. And frankly, it was a CW show. They usually aren’t worth my time. (Sorry, but I’m a judgmental prick. But I’m working on it, okay?)
Color me surprised. My favorite show out of the three CW pilots I viewed, this was by-far my favorite. It’s literally a tv version of Doc Hollywood but I’m okay with that. It features Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson) who goes back to a small town and essentially grows up by learning to be a people person, something is just is not in any way. Her perfect live in the city is destroyed when her boyfriend breaks up with her for being all business, she doesn’t get the promotion in surgery she wants because she is too heartless and cold, and so off to the country she goes!
In the deep south though, there are tons of tropes our heroine can befall. Some of them here are pretty frickin’ hilarious. I won’t spoil it unless the promos have (I don’t watch too many promos of any CW show period but) one of the local neighbors called ‘Burt Reynolds’ is surprisingly hilarious as neighbors warn Hart constantly of Renyolds, but naturally, our heroine won’t listen. The town belles are led by Lemon, (played by Jaime King) and with a bit of viciousness do they strike at Hart, almost equally as cruel as Hart was to them.
Despite the seeming paint-by-the-numbers-idea, the show survives because it’s cast and the chemistry and the nice turnabout the show takes. Personally, I hope The Hart of Dixie is able to continue for a full seasons as of the pilot, it has my sincere vote. We’ll check back in with The Hart of Dixie in a few weeks to see if the show continues to thrive creatively.
