Dear "The Carrie Diaries":
When I first heard that we were getting a prequel series to "Sex and the City," I honestly didn't care. I didn't read the books you were based on, and I was never a fan of the Sarah Jessica Parker show. However, I do love any and all things CW, so I figured I'd tune in to your series premiere anyways, just so I could say I gave you a fair shot before purging you from my DVR.
But to my own surprise, I was instantly hooked. The way you dealt with teenage issues in a real way -- with nary a supernatural influence
