A couple of years ago when Hart of Dixie premiered I remember wanting to watch it. You know, when the new seasons start and all the new shows come out. We TV junkies try to figure out how we are going to squeeze new shows in, while maintaining our old favorites, sometimes keeping fingers crossed that our favorites won’t go the way of Go One, one of my favorite shows from last year that got canceled (NBC, I’m sad now *tear*). Over the next two years I’ve tried to watch Hart of Dixe, I caught an episode here and there, but I couldn’t make it stick. I loved it too! That was the weird part. It wasn’t that I couldn’t get into it, life just happened.
So when I happened upon it on Netflix I was thrilled. I just figured I’d be behind a season as we went along. I gobbled it up like my favorite junk food, powering through two season in a couple weeks (can you say addicted?). Then I decided to see just how far they were into the new season. Some shows don’t start until later so maybe I hadn’t missed too many. CW is so freaking awesome that their mobile app had all of the episodes so far. Just like that, MAGIC, I’m all caught up. Now the tricky part comes, waiting for the episodes to air in the normal fashion. Dang it all!! I love the show. It has been the closest thing to “Gilmore Girls” that I have found. It’s witty, funny, and actually spends time developing characters and story. So many shows out there don’t have a story, or real depth, so they just end up throwing a bunch of crude jokes and sex at you. The writing is great and the casting is perfect.
In the last episode we were left on a total cliff hanger because Brick’s ex-fiancee was back and pregnant (with probably his baby…what!!!). Lemon left the Rammer Jammer and didn’t get Fancy’s either, because the ex-fiance had purchased it herself. AB and the Mayor finally had their talk about their relationship (I really hope it goes the distance), and I guess Joel is finally starting to grow on me…but come on…I’m a total succor for Wade. He should really stop the whole bad-boy thing.
I don’t know about you, but I CAN NOT wait for next week!
I’ll be tweeting (#heartofdixie) and writing about all the fun shenanigans that is “Hart of Dixie” over at ENMNetwork. Chances are, if you haven’t a favorite show you will find some fun over there as well. Make sure you check it out.
Any other HOD fans out there?
