'Hart of Dixie'
What we said then: "Will 'Hart of Dixie' be a roaring success for The CW? Probably not. But it's got enough going for it with Rachel Bilson, a reasonable concept and a crew of attractive 20-somethings that CW fans gravitate toward."
What we say now: One word: WADE. Wilson Bethel's redneck character was a bit of comic relief in the pilot. Since then, he's continued to bring the laughs -- but we've also seen a ton of heart from the character in his relationships not only with Zoe (Bilson) but also with Lavon (Cress Williams) and, in one memorable scene, with his father. As for Bilson herself, she continues to play Zoe exactly as she played the now-iconic Summer Roberts, and we're cool with that. We tune in every week for some warm-and-fuzzy feelings and to see Wade shirtless. The show hasn't exactly blown us away, but it's lived up to expectations and proven to be the perfect cozy escape after a long Monday.
