We are just hours away from a return trip to Bluebell.
Following a fantastic finale in May, Hart of Dixie kicks off Season 3 tonight on The CW - and who better to pick the brain of for some scoop than executive producer Leila Gersteiin?
In the following exclusive interview, Gersteiin tells us what to expect from Zoe and Wade, how the series is dealing with Jaime King's real-life pregnancy and whether George's Zoe-related blues are finally cured...
The core of this show has always been the love triangle between Zoe, Wade and George. Zoe has brought nothing but heartache to poor George. One of the best scene's from "If Tomorrow Never Comes" was when Zoe told George how she felt, again, and he responded "Are you freaking kidding me!?" I loved this scene because it's exactly how I felt. George is safe for Zoe.
I completely agree with you. »

As irritating as it is to watch Zoe ping pong between Wade and George, her frustration over what happened was hilarious to watch on the Hart of Dixie Season 2 finale. At least at first.
In "On the Road Again," Zoe woke up hopeful that she didn't sleep with Wade... only to be disappointed when he walked out of the bathroom in only a towel. And then to make matters worse, George walked in on them. Seriously, her romantic life is a comedy of awkward situations. At this point, is it possible for her to be happy with either George or Wade? I'm not sure. And I blame the writers for that.
Zoe's actions these past few weeks haven't felt true to character at all. She's selfish, indecisive and was hurt by Wade, but her declarations to George and the night with Wade didn't make sense. And even though George walking »

When The CW's small-town Southern rom-com "Hart of Dixie" closes out its second season Tuesday (May 7), country trio Gloriana is in the house, but that's not the only very special appearance.
According to the synopsis for the epiosde, called "On the Road Again," "Lavon (Cress Williams) discovers that the opposing town's mayor has stolen something dear to him and enlists the help of the townspeople to get it back."
It's been a while since anyone saw Burt Reynolds, the pet alligator of BlueBell, Ala., Mayor Lavon Hayes, so it's possible that the big lizard could be the "something dear" in question.
But however it happens, Burt is back, and Williams gets up and close and personal.
The 1973 Palme d'Or at Cannes was shared by two disparate, odd-couple road movies: Alan Bridges's The Hireling, in which chauffeur Robert Shaw drives rich widow Sarah Miles on visits to English cathedrals, and Jerry Schatzberg's Scarecrow, starring Gene Hackman (recently released violent convict) and Al Pacino (recently signed-off gentle merchant seaman) who meet in California and set out to hitchhike to Pittsburgh where they intend to open a car wash. Both films are largely forgotten now, but neither is without merit.
Scarecrow, an elliptical mixture of the tough (Pacino is raped on a prison farm) and the whimsical (the title tells us that scarecrows are successful because crows find them funny), is the best film in Schatzberg's small but interesting oeuvre. The magnificent cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond has dusty images of »

Question: When will Kate finally say “I love you” to Rick on Castle? —Meg
Ausiello: Probably when she succeeds in breaking down those steel-fortified walls of his. “The issue [ex-wife Meredith raised] is going to cause some trouble,” series creator Andrew Marlowe acknowledges. “We spent four years exposing who Kate is. She’s a very private person, and she’s kind of opened [up] to Castle. But now the question is, where’s Castle’s depth? He tends to live on the surface, »

Roseanne Barr is taking another swing at developing an NBC sitcom. According to THR, she and producing partner Steven Greener have signed a deal to have Barr create and star in a new comedy. Déjà vu: Barr developed an NBC sitcom last pilot season that would have reunited her with John Goodman. Alas, Downwardly Mobile didn't make it past the pilot stage, but perhaps everyone will fare better this time. For old time's sake, here is a clip from one of the best episodes of Roseanne. If you can hear the song "On the Road Again" without just subbing in "dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah road again" for the lyrics, it's only because you've never watched season four's "Kansas City, Here We Come." »

Johnny Cash: Blood, Sweat and Tears (Columbia)
Some of Cash's '60s concept albums were burdened with much too talking between tracks; here the tribute to the American working man gets to mostly stand alone on its musical merits, and shines. Notably, it incluces the top version of the traditional "John Henry"” about the most legendarily heroic working man ever, and the version of "Casey Jones" here is classic as well. Politically and psychologically, Cash was the perfect man for this job.
Byrds: Notorious Byrd Brothers (Columbia)
Sometimes transitional albums, confusing listeners expecting a group's earlier style, are underrated. Not so with this classic. It's true that it didn't sell as well as earlier Byrds LPs, nor did the single from the album chart very high, but for decades Notorious Byrd Brothers has been widely revered, and not just by fans; some critics have even anointed it as the band's best album. »
