  • Thanks so much for the shout-out, Reclusive Bibliophile!

    Especially since my dear friend Leila created the show.

    Especially since a certain character on the show was named for me…guess which one? 🙂

    • That’s very cool! Good to know that the Crickett connection is no coincidence 🙂

  • I’d say Gilmore Girls – the quirky town and characters!

    • Good call. Gilmore Girls should be promoted as often as possible 😉

  • reminds me alot of gilmore girls. Zoey is alot like Loralai..Not to mention the quirky town has a bit of the gilmore girls vibe mixed in with the doctor angle of everwood. I do think the doctor stuff is done better on Hart of Dixie. I always thought with everwood that once the doctors became friends that the show began to suffer but the character relationships seem just alittle bit more enjoyable on this show even though I loved everwood too. But this is definitely a good blend of everwood and gilmore girls. But there’s an old show it reminds me of and I just can’t place what it is.
