I actually like the show, it's comforting somehow - and I feel good while I watch it. The plot is nothing too special, but I find it immensely better than the tv movie version, and the characters are more credible, if a little on the verge of southern cliche. They are certainly better than "Hart of Dixie"'s cartoonish characters, though.
The two main pet peeves I have:
1) Riley's fake eyelashes
2) The BFF whatsherface - really annoying, especially in the latest episode, when she got all judgmental and high-horsy, and I had an unbearable urge to scream "who the heck asked you, b***!!!" at her.
