Hey, look at that - another show I'm never going to watch. Sure, Rachel Bilson's new show Hart of Dixie has got her in some decidedly awesome wardrobe selections, but the inane plot of the slick, fast-talkin' northern doctor come south to tend to rednecks, is about as hackneyed and stereotypical a theme as has ever been conceived. While the concept of the uncultured southerner might not be all that far-fetched, I prefer those who chose to give them the benefit of the doubt. I know for a fact that there are many sophisticated folks living south of the Mason-Dixon, as well as a number of rather uncouth types lurking north of it. How about doing the story of a Jersey guido who finds him or herself in the South, where they learn about manners and the importance of taking responsibility for themselves and their community. How refreshing that would be.
