Valedictorian at New York med school, surgeon's daughter Zoe Hart declines an offer to join obscure Alabama Gulf town Bluebell's senior doctor Harley Wilkes to join his country practice, but he kept sending postcards. When she's told to get a year of practice experience to develop patient in order to be admitted to the surgical training, she finally accepts, to her mother Candice Hart's distress. Harley meanwhile died but named her heir to what's actually only his half of the practice which local Dr. Brick Breeland wanted to continue alone. Zoe hesitates whether to stay, appreciating helpful gentleman local lawyer George Tucker and ex-national sports hero Lavon Hayes, now the native mayor, but starting badly with womanizing estate caretaker Wade Kinsella and misled by her first patient who faked an eye test before running over George. Yet an unwanted pregnancy proves decisive. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


In the 1982 novel "Shoeless Joe" by W. P. Kinsella, the (fictional) main character, Ray Kinsella, goes on a road trip to find the (real) writer J. D. Salinger, author of "Catcher in the Rye," because Salinger had a real-life habit of using the last name "Kinsella" for his characters and Ray wants to find out why. In "Hart of Dixie," the character of Wade Kinsella is played by Wilson Bethel, whose mother, the writer Joyce Maynard, had a very well-publicized relationship with J. D. Salinger. See more »

Disappointing, yet hopeful start to the series
30 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Review: I am a big fan of Rachel Bilson and was really looking forward to this show for that one reason only. I was a little disappointed in watching the pilot for a number of reasons.

First of all, no offense to Rachel, but the dialogue for Zoe Hart felt too much like Summer (from The O.C.) pretending to be a doctor. It didn't give me the impression that Rachel was playing a new character. I just felt like I was seeing Summer all over again, which is nice in a way, but it is totally wrong for this show. Secondly, I thought it was a little strange that this was the ONLY option Zoe had. Just because she didn't get the fellowship in New York doesn't mean that she couldn't try her luck in other major cities. I felt like she could have had so many better options than to come to Blue Bells to start her medical career. Finally, the main issue I had with this show was how it depicted Southerners to be so backwards that they didn't even have electricity or had just put up satellite recently.

However, there are some aspects I liked about the pilot. For one thing, I enjoyed the main premise of the show, where we see Zoe make a major transition in trying to adjust in a small knit community, even though she really wishes she wasn't there. The end of the episode where Zoe finds out why Wilkes gave her half the practice was nicely done and to me was the highlight of the show. I also enjoyed watching the storyline of Zoe supporting Mabel.

Overall, I felt the pilot didn't meet my expectations, but I will still watch a few more episodes to see if it improves or not.
