    So Far from just watching the Pilot I was Pleasantly surprised. I assumed it would be just another teen show over sexualising kids and portraying teens to be adults. This was not true. I felt like the teens in this show were very realistically portrayed. There was some sex talk but not in the way you would expect considering this is a spin off of a very sex driven show.

I don't think fans of sex in the city will like it if your looking for a carbon copy of the original. This is a TEEN show and it is fully a teen show. Saying that I wouldn't let anyone below 14 or 15 watch it because it does touch on mature subjects. Collapse

    Kinda like a reboot to the Sex and the City franchise, but I like the series instead of watching The Carrie Diaries. I don't know if the show is gonna be a success, but maybe CW viewers including women everywhere have watched Carrie Bradshaw and the gals having a good time, partying at clubs, and Samantha having sex over the past 8 seasons. Those were the good old days at HBO. So, I don'tKinda like a reboot to the Sex and the City franchise, but I like the series instead of watching The Carrie Diaries.

    I may be biased as I was a SATC fan, but this show just doesn't capture the magic of Sex and The City. I hate the idea of making a prequel to Sex and The City, even though I do miss the show. Carrie wasn't the only character in Sex and The City either. At this age, she doesn't have best friends like Samantha, or Charlotte.

The Carrie Diaries is about Carrie trying to find her place. I just don't like it. Expand

    Diaries is lukewarm and earnest. [21 Jan 2013]

    The problem is that The Carrie Diaries is an inept spinoff that dishonors its source.

    AnnaSophia Robb is appealing enough in the title role, but Monday's first episode starts to sag from all the CW-ian title character narration and overall pop tune heaviness.
