When I heard about The Carrie Diaries, the prequel to Sex & the City (one of the best TV shows of all time), I didn’t pay it much attention.
With an actress too “cute” to be Carrie, too permed to be realistic, and the 80s looking like they came straight out of Forever 21 – and then there’s the obvious: Do I really want to watch a TV show that talks about a bunch of teenagers?
But out of love and respect for Candace Bushnell (author and producer), I kept watching.
And you know what?
It got me. The structure of Sex & the City stayed the same (one episode, one question), the characters are more “normal” than in Gossip Girl or Pretty Little Liars (even though I’ve never known a teenager with a wardrobe quite as large as Carrie Bradshaw’s…) and the episodes go down as easy as marshmallows. They even talk about sex, it’s funny!!! I can’t wait for the moment when she’ll finally meet Sam…
Take a peek. See what you think.
Let me know what you think!!!
