Why I love it: As fans of "The O.C." always knew, Rachel Bilson has superior comic timing and she's anchoring an ensemble of fine performers getting a kick out of playing lovable eccentrics, including Scott Porter, Wilson Bethel, Cress Williams, Jaime King, Kaitlyn Black and even lesser used actors including Ross Philips, Mallory Moye, Reginald VelJohnson, Brandi Burkhardt and more. "Hart of Dixie" isn't "Gilmore Girls," despite shared locations on the Warner Brothers lot, but it often has a low-key, but similar mix of big-hearted quirkiness.
Why it's cringe-inducing: A lot of people decided early on that because of her use of formal shorts, Rachel Bilson's Zoe Hart wasn't believable as a doctor. Bah. That is *not* a flaw of "Hart of Dixie." However, I can't tell you that "Hart of Dixie" doesn't rely rather heavily on a sometimes inconsistent mishmash of Southern caricature and soap opera love triangles.
