How many of us have searched for a new Netflix series time and time again? You may have scrolled past "Hart of Dixie" on Netflix thinking you hadn’t heard of it or it sounded too cheesy.

While a majority of CW shows can be hit or miss, I’m here to tell you it’s the cutest, most original show there is, and it’s unfair that there are only four seasons worth of binging.

Zoe Hart has grown up her whole life in downtown New York. She graduates medical school and decides to respond to the nagging messages of an older gentleman who asks her to practice at his own practice. With nothing else to do and zero jobs lined up, she moves to Bluebell Alabama to work at the practice, only to learn that she has inherited half of the practice from her late biological father she didn’t even know.

The problem is that this city girl needs to adjust to Southern hospitality, all while competing with the other half of the practice who wants her out. Think of this series as a southern version of Gilmore Girls, minus a mother. It’s cute, it’s sappy, it’s all sort of binge worthiness that you need to start.

Zoe Hart is THE “it girl."

She’s spunky and adorable, amazingly smart, and sometimes trumps southern hospitality with her New York 'tude. When she comes to town, no one takes a liking because they’re jealous that she’s as beautiful as she is. The boys love her because of her looks, but the girls are envious because they assume she thinks she’s better than everyone else. While she kills everyone with her kindness and with her intelligence, everyone adores her enough to take her in as her own.

Bluebell is the town we all want to live in.

It has that small town feel that has many different characters that make up the simplicity that the town is. Everyone knows everyone and probably knows their entire life story. People start their lives there from the day they're born all the way until they grow up with grown-up jobs and start their own families there to continue the cycle.

The town itself has everything one could need to survive and live in. A café/bar known as the “Rammer Jammer,” a bakery known as “The Butter Stick,” which is the local bakery that everyone goes to for coffee, pastries, and the likes, and “Fancie’s,” where everyone goes for a nice sit-down meal. The unfortunate downside is that it’s a fictional town that you can’t even go to visit in real life.

The Southern Hospitality isn’t fiction.

Although not everyone is a fan of Zoe Hart at first, they eventually grow to love her and accept her as one of their own. And when I say love her, I mean adore her.

When she goes through a messy break up with a boyfriend from New York, they immediately take her side and love on her all that she needs. When you see everyone interacting with one another, you can see the history of everyone and the care and admiration that everyone has for one another. It shows that Southern Hospitality is a real thing.

There’s a love triangle that lasts for a majority of the entire series.

Since Zoe is the “it girl” it’s only proper that she falls in love with Bluebell’s “it boy,” right? Not necessarily. The town goofball, better known as Wade Kinsella, who just so happens to be George Tucker (it boy’s) best friend, is another boy who just so happens to be interested in Zoe as well. During all four seasons, the ups and downs of this love triangle leave the viewers wanting to know who Zoe will end up with once and for all.

The feel-good show makes you appreciate family dynamics.

Zoe Hart isn’t the only character to struggle with family relationships. While Zoe was never able to meet her biological father, she also doesn’t have the best relationship with her mother. Her mother embodies what one would believe to be a typical uppity New Yorker’s attitude, and she finds Zoe insane to have ever stepped foot in the state of Alabama. Her step-father expects so much out of her as a cardiac surgeon, and when Zoe wants to stay in Bluebell to practice family medicine, he thinks it’s absurd.

Another major character named Lemon has to deal with her mother who left their family to start her own after over 10 years of being with them. While she lives in only the next town over, Lemon never gets to see her mother and is heartbroken when she finds out she has a little sister that she’s never even met.

While I don’t want to give too much away out of this show, there’s nothing else to say other than it’s a show that must be watched. It’s such a feel-good show that is simply adorable and leaves you wanting to watch more. You might just want to take the next flight out to Mobile and search for a little town similar to Bluebell.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at Pottermore.com. For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.

10 Places From Movies And TV You Can Visit In Real Life

It's like stepping into Hollywood!

1202
views

I am constantly so enamored by the world of Hollywood and by going to visit places I have seen on screen. It's always such an unreal feeling to see where my favorite pieces of entertainment were shot. Here are 10 places from some of our favorite movies to see and visit in the real world!

The High School from "10 Things I Hate About You"

If you have ever wanted to dance on the same stairs as Heath Ledger or just stand in the same courtyard as Julia Stiles then you're in luck! Along the water in Tacoma, Washington, Stadium High School is located which was used both inside and out as the high school from one of the greatest teen movies of all time. This school is massive and so beautiful it's almost Hogwarts level stunning.

Pacific Coast Academy from  "Zoey 101"

Growing up I always dreamed about going to Pacific Coast Academy and being best friends with Jamie Lynn Spears and one of those things can (kinda) become a reality! Located in Malibu is a beautiful campus called Pepperdine University and it is the school they used to shoot scenes of Zoey and the gang at PCA. It is a christian based college and is prestigious in it's own right so if unlike me you are smart enough you can live out my dreams.

Central City Police Department from "The Flash"

Have you ever wanted to show up to Detective Joe West's place of work? Well head to the Vancouver City Hall in Vancouver, Canada and you will recognize your surroundings as the Central City Police Department! If you are lucky enough to show up on a filming day, you might even seen the man himself — Barry Allen.

Forks High School from The Twilight Saga

Personally, I am more invested in Bella and Jacob but for all my Team Edward ladies (and gentleman) you can visit the real-life school where Bella and Edward first met and their love blossomed into whatever obsessive weird thing it was. They also used the parking lot at this school to film the infamous scene where Edward saves Bella from getting crushed by a car. The school is called Kalama High School and is located in Kalama, Washington

Max And Dani's House from "Hocus Pocus"

Anyone with taste loves the movie Hocus Pocus — that's just facts! And I have some good news for fans of the film...you can visit the infamous Denison house! Located in none other than Salem, Massachusetts you will find this beautiful home where my favorite siblings once lived.

Silent Hill from "Silent Hill"

I will say before talking about this place that visiting it is EXTREMELY dangerous as just like in the movie the town as been burning from below for years and years. This small town is called Centralia and is located Pennsylvania and has a roaring population of about four people.

Hobbiton from "Lord Of The Rings"

I am personally not a fan of Lord of the Rings but I know a lot of people are so I wanted to include this super cool place on the list. If you ever find yourself in New Zealand you can visit Hobbinton from the movies and spend a day living like your favorite characters.

Platform 9 3/4 from the Harry Potter Series

Now this place will unfortunately be packed with muggles of course but you can find it at King's Cross Station in London! If you are anything like me and are obsessed with these magical movies this is a dream destination just don't run too hard at the wall if you're a muggle it will probably end in a concussion.

East High from the High School Musical Saga

Located in Salt Lake City Utah is the real life East High that was used in the filming of all three High School Musical movies. It is my absolute dream to attend this high school and walk the halls of the greatest high school of all time. They used both the outside and inside and the school so every inch of the school will remind you of these great teen movies.

Gus and Hazel's Bench from "The Fault in Our Stars" 

If you ever wanted to visit the site of this kiss between star crossed lovers you're in luck! Located along a canal in Amsterdam is a bench that is clearly marked by all the fault in our stars graffiti. Recreate this cute picture with your significant other and use a quote from the movie — then you'll just win in life.
