    Being from Alabama myself I absolutely love this show. Its a good sweet comedy. There is not to many shows out there with heart “no pun intended”. I really hope this show does not get cancelled. So many shows do not get a chance to survive. How can we have so many violent shows and so few family shows. I love the chemistry on the show.

  2. Mirjam says

    Love the show! Love the characters!! Rachel Bilson ist so funny, but the others are also amazing!! Jamie King is a great comedian, too. And there is so much chemistry between Zoe and Wade – it was the best decision to follow this story line, I think. Hope so much the show will have a 3d season…

  3. Lindsey says

    It was just on a whim when I started watching the show on Netflix. That was a week ago and now I’m completely addicted. I really hope it doesn’t get canceled, Wade Kinsella it’s too hot to cancel!!

  4. says

    Hart of Dixie is one of those shows that once I start watching it, I am hooked, but I forget about it in the meantime. I loved it until the end of season 1, when all season they lead up to George and Zoe finally being together, and then basically dumped the whole storyline, which was disappointing.

  5. Bree says

    i dont know. I guess for the viewers that like the show, they like the fact that there isnt much depth to the story lines, but for viewers like myself i dont care whos running for mayor for a whole episode against another character that has no storyline background and showed up one episode ago. Whats going to keep viewers wanting to return next week? Thats what they need to base their story lines around cause right now this show is easy to forget to watch

  6. says

    great relaxing tv show, please please don’t canclr it. latelh there are no much shows where somebody didn’t kill someone , let’s keep this one

  7. Anonymous says

    Stumbled across this show on Netflix and sailed through all the episodes. I hope it doesn’t get canceled! Crossing my fingers!

    Hart of Dixie was good up to the point where George found out about Lemon’s affair and Zoe slept with Wade. From that point on, Zoe forgot that she graduated on the top 10% of her class, her dreams about being a heart surgeon, to become a sex maniac and slave of Wade, in a little town where there is only two guys available for dating. Her behavior is like of a wild 15 years-old. George is now pictured as insecure, sometimes confused and a little idiot. Wade who ,before Zoe coming to town, was preparing himself to replace his father as the next perennial town’s drunkard, now has taken another role – of a jerk. Wade is the typical irresponsible, imature, cynical and un-cultured guy. The type of guy for just one night of fun and nothing else. Except for 1 min conversation in the barn, there has never been any meaningful or normal conversation between Zoe and Wade. Zoe lost focus. George became an idiot. Wade thinks that his prowess in bed can make up for everything he lacks in other areas. Finally, we have Lemon who looks now
    more mature and saner than everybody else.

    Hart of Dixie is a GREAT little show…there are really no weaknesses in the cast or the writing or anything….the only problem is that they put it on at the same time…I think…as NCIS, which has always had ratings through the roof….it is a shame to see Hart of Dixie hurt by just putting it in the wrong timeslot….

  10. Vanessa says

    I started watching Hart of Dixie like a month ago… and I love it…i watched the 1st season like in 3 days…so far i love season 2!!! The Vampire Diaries, Nikita & Hart of Dixie are my favorite shows…I hope they don’t get cancelled!!!

  11. Kristin says

    I love Hart of Dixie. It’s one of the few shows on the network that actually has adults that we haven’t been watching since high school. Rachel Bilson is great and always makes me laugh. I’m excited to see Lemon grow and become a bigger character.

    This last episode was a little vanilla. I need a little more excitment without going all 90210 or OTH crazy.

  12. Ellen says

    I love Hart of Dixie. It’s such a fun show, with a very talented and very adorable cast. I bought the season DVD set and loving Season 2.

  13. Carole says

    I love the southern charm of this show and wish it were more popular. I’ve even bought online some of the episodes that I missed last season.

  14. Lois says

    Why ask that anyway? It was given to her anyway. She needs something to do. She don’t care if don’t come back. It should end with her hooking up with one the guys. She really don’t like working on it anyway
