Hart of Dixie: Season 1 Reviews

March 24, 2020
Oh, "Hart of Dixie" isn't awful... But it's totally derivative and lacks the kind of heart that made shows like "Gilmore Girls" and "Everwood" so great.

Despite a very alluring cast, Hart of Dixie is just a little too cute for its own good.

"Dixie" can be satisfying in an old-fashioned way. I wouldn't have shed a tear if [it was] canceled but...There's room for improvement here.

I guess Hart Of Dixie was always going to be bad. The premise is just too hackneyed to really be salvageable.

Hart Of Dixie captures all of the superficial trappings of the small-town show, but it never captures the soul that made shows like Northern Exposure or Gilmore Girls work.

"Hart of Dixie" is a mess of a show. Its tired plot, stilted acting and manufactured drama only highlight the fake accents and implausible characters.

The show...is more about moving pieces around a set than telling a new or interesting story.

Homey charms aside, the Dixie tale is sillier than an electric banjo!

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.

It's the South as seen by Hollywood writers who've never been there, or went there blindfolded.

Rachel Bilson (The OC) plays a would-be cardiothoracic surgeon. Yeah, I know, right?

The show is cozy, predictable, comfortable and, like a good ole' huntin' dog, not in need of serious housebreaking.

Hart of Dixie doesn't look to be much more than what you'd unfortunately expect.

Perhaps with more attention to concrete character details and less reliance on silly stereotypes, Hart of Dixie will manage to grow into a show that does not provoke multiple fits of eye rolling
September 26, 2011
This CW show is so silly and lightweight it might possess unexpected appeal for its sheer camp factor.

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

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

A convincing performance may be beyond her, but she could start by finding a way to say "Doctor Zoe Hart" as if it doesn't surprise her as much as it does us.
