    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 characters in the original TV show were women in New York City trying to find love. The Carrie Diaries is about Carrie trying to find her place. I just don't like it. Expand

    Honestly this would be a good show if it wasn't a SATC prequel the show has absolutely no relation to SATC and it's sad they say it is. For ex: In this show her mother died and she lives with her father yet in SATC Carrie says the reason she has such trouble with men is because her father left her and her mother when she was 3, so I mean it's really annoying they call this a prequel when really it's a totally different show.

    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.
