forgot to add in my prev comment. if the CW was to re-launch One Tree Hill with a fresh cast- Carrie would be the perfect Peyton Sawyer...just saying :)
It was refereshing to see the early 80s but I was kind of hoping to have a glimmer of Gossip Girl in the show. I love how they introduce Manhattan as the protagonist, after all Manhattan will shape Carrie as to who she becomes right? love the sequined dress and the manhattan skyline snow globe- with the carrie diaries written in hot pink. the first few seconds only sweep u in.
And i agree about the steamy pool kiss- Cruel Intentions 1 set the trend for steamy + pool ;)
I love her friend mouse and her wannabe goth sister is a cross between annoying jenny ( from GG) & the various Waldorf Minions :)
What can I say about Sebastian Kidd? control that outta control smirk dude, u have a slight chance of overtaking Damon Salvatore! NO!!!
The mean girls aren't bitchy enough and high school parties suck even in 2013...
Overall, I am going to hang on for a few episodes, and Robb who plays Carrie is so fresh, believable and cute.
Thumbs up to the network & hope they have 10 seasons like SATC!
cont... I actually like the voice overs of Carrie's thoughts, the handbag with her name on it, the little c necklace, and then the end with her initiating her love of writing at the window with her desk.
It will be interesting to see how today's teens take to it because like somebody else said... some teens today may find something like 'Girls' far more interesting.
Anyway, I think it'll be nice to watch Carrie Bradshaw fall in love with Manhattan in the '80s before the rest of the characters story played out.
I'm in my late 20's and a fan of Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw so I wasn't sure if this show was something I should even tune into... whether it was very much a teen drama and whether it would just butcher everything great about the character Carrie Bradshaw. Honestly... I really didn't hate it. The '80s setting makes me feel okay with tuning in, lol. The 80s music, outfits, and backgrounds are also done quite well and not overly cheesy however; like others, I imagine Carrie's hair being FAR more frizzy in the 80s.
I also feel like there were moments where you could see the young girl playing Carrie has taken the time to learn small quirks made known by SJP when creating the adult TV Carrie Bradshaw and as a fan of the SJP Carrie Bradshaw... it's appreciated :)
As a huge SATC fan I was looking forward to this show....but I feel like they lost me early on. In SATC Carrie references that her dad quit her and her mom when she was little and she thinks it shaped how she sees men. That's a pretty big detail to change.
Stbob is right. The teenagers now would probably more incline to watch GIRLS. I am a big SATC fan, only reason why I am watching this. The pilot was average. I think Anna Sophia is good. Having a good lead is important in keeping me interested in the show. I had hope it would be show Carries in her 20s rather than when she is 15. Perhaps if there is a 2nd or 3rd season, they could time jump a few years.
I do love 80s music and the show have lots of it even the more obscure White Horse. The more innocent times why handphone and laptops were not common. I did grew up in the 80s.
I really think they should have made it more consistent with sex and the city. I won't even talk about it being consistent with the carrie diaries books because they already changed the story line completely (the way she gets to new york).
I wish it was a little less inocent also, i know this is her as a teen ager but its the 80's and kids were already doing all kinds of stuff, they even show it (mentioning sex and pot) but it feels a bit forced seeing how wide eyed she is.
I have very high hopes for the show, I am a satc fan and loved the books. I just really hope they don't turn it into your typical unrealistically positive teen series (like jane by design)
(V.0) Inner Dialogue, Why??? Aside from that dreadful device to engage the viewer, I thought it was charming enough.
It definitely deserves better ratings.
@carrie " I'm glad they chose AnnaSophia. It's so rare (especially in the 'teen' genre) to find a lead that is captivating. Only one in recent memory for me is Ashley Rickards on Awkward." Agree
That's why I don't believe she needs the (V.O). Awkward gets away with (V.O) as it's very little ,and it's a comedy.
