Getting to the Hart of the Matter

New out this season is a television show called Hart of Dixie staring Rachel Bilson as Doctor Zoe Hart. I promise that I'm not ruining too much of the storyline for you. At Zoe's graduation a man approaches her and essentially offers her a job in Bluebell, Alabama which she doesn't even consider for a second. You see, Zoe is a surgeon from New York and is aspiring to be an amazing surgeon like her dad. However, she is told that she had a horrible bedside manner and that she should spend a year in family medicine because otherwise her career isn't moving anywhere. Zoe decides to head to Alabama to take that man, Doctor Wilkes, up on his offer. Turns out Doctor Wilkes has passed away, but he has left Zoe his share of a medical practice because he was her father! Yeah, you can see where this is going.

In summary, the cast of characters are (from left to right):

  • Levon Hayes - Former NFL star and mayor of Bluebell. He also happens to be Zoe's landlord and bestfriend. However, he is also in love with Lemon Breeland.
  • George Tucker - Lawyer in town. Used to practice law in New York but moved back for Lemon Breeland.
  • Zoe Hart - Big city northerner doctor trying to make it in smalltown Alabama. Has resolved that she can't get anywhere with George Tucker because he is engaged to Lemon Breeland.
  • Lemon Breeland - All around southern belle with a real nasty streak when she chooses. Is engaged to George Tucker and her dad shares the medical practice with Zoe. Also, hates Zoe and had an affair with Levon Hayes.
  • Wade Kinsella - Bartender at the Wammer Jammer. Is a neighbour of Zoe's and also had Levon as a landlord. Is in love with Zoe, but won't tell her.
A thinks I'm completely nuts for liking this show, but it is so refreshing compared to most of the televsion shows on air these days. I desperately hope that they don't cancel it!

What is your tv guilty pleasure?
