Hart of Dixie  
So I randomly decided I wanted a cute, fluffy show in my life and downloaded Hart of Dixie. One episode in, I was all TEAM WADE! and I watched all current ten episodes today. Awesomely, the show is exactly what I thought it would be: Cute and fluffy, with the addition of the unexpected uber-hot chemistry between Rachel Bilson (Zoe) and Wilson Bethel (Wade). And seriously?! How hilarious is the similarity in the actors' names? Hahaha! You couldn't make that up, people would roll their eyes at the unbelievability of it, hah!

I suppose George/Zoe are supposed to be the OTP of the show, but I swear it's as if the show itself forgets this. We'll have two to three episodes that highlight all of the typical root-for-couple behavior, misunderstandings, sweet moments, tension, etc. with Zoe and Wade, and then suddenly an episode where it feels like the writers slapped their foreheads and went 'oh, crap! It's supposed to be GEORGE and Zoe!' And then we'll have a scene or two highlighting their "connection" in an episode. Then it goes right back to a couple of episodes all about the perfection of Zoe and Wade. Weird, but I ain't complaining. :)

Anyhoo, it's a cute show. The guys are hot. Zoe and Wade are AWE-SOME! And I'm onboard! Woohoo!! And true fact? I totally adore this icon I made for them. So pretty! :D

Aren't they awesome? I ship them so hard. I thought you weren't going to watch this though? It is seriously my guilty pleasure. I wasn't sure in the beginning, but after the third episode it became can't miss television. George who?

They are awesome. I just enjoy the heck out of them so much. :)

I wasn't planning on watching because I'd pretty much heard that the only reason to watch would be if you're a Rachel Bilson fan, and well I don't dislike her, but I'm not a fan. But sometimes, you know, you just get a random urge to check something else. That's what happened here. :)

I ♥ Zoe and Wade :D I like George as a character, but he has his own problems with Lemon still being in love with Lavon. He should just let Zoe and Wade do their thing.

I need to go find some icons for this show.

Exactly, I like George on his own, but as a romantic love interest, I definitely prefer Zoe with Wade, and Lemon with Lavon.

I love this show. Like you, I need some cheesy, uncomplicated show sometimes and Hart of dixie is perfect.

I suppose George/Zoe are supposed to be the OTP of the show, but I swear it's as if the show itself forgets this.
Yes! It's not that I don't like George but I don't really care what happens to him... I want Zoe with Wade and Lemon with the Mayor. Sorry George, lol.

Exactly. It's just a simple, turn-your-brain-off and enjoy show. :)

It's not that I don't like George but I don't really care what happens to him

Exactly! :)

I always laugh at that about George/Zoe because most of the build up HAS been for Zoe/Wade and then, like you said, we get a random episode or two where George/Zoe have a ~a connection~ and then its right back to awesome Zoe/Wade.

I know, right? It's just odd. The only comparable thing I can think of is Merlin, where the show will be all Merlin/Arthur and randomly remember that they are sorta following the Arthurian legend, and, oh yeah, here's Arthur/Gwen. But at least there, there is the template. With this show, it's their own original story, so I say just go with the flow. Clearly EVERYONE wants Zoe/Wade ... including the show, LOL!

i like hart of dixie. it's a cute show, and it's not one you have to follow closely in order to understand it, which is great for me right now because i don't have time to pay close attention to shows. i like wade/zoe, too, but i like george/zoe because of scott porter, AKA jason street :)

I like George (and Scott Porter), but I find George and Zoe boring simply because I don't think that BIlson and Porter have any chemistry.

I adore Hart of Dixie and Wade is totally, totally the right man for Zoe. I find George soooooooooo boring. He is clearly the Duncan of the show. :D
Arabian: Zoe & Wade01arabian on December 20th, 2011 12:54 am (UTC)
Totally. But isn't it so weird how it's like the show forgets that it's "suppposed" to be Zoe/George and does all this awesome Zoe/Wade stuff ... and then remembers, oh yeah, George, and throws some random line or scene to "remind" us. It's just so ... odd. Hopefully, if they get renewed, they go with the pretty much universal love for Zoe/Wade (that most of the writers clearly feel as well) and do something better with Scott Porter's George.
