Did You Know?


The World Trade Center towers( 1970-2001) were not included in any of the scenes of the pilot, even though it fits within the show's time frame. This was done deliberately by the producers so it wouldn't be possible painful reminder for any of the audience See more »


Carrie Bradshaw: Love is something we wait for. We imagine our first kiss or first sex, or first "I love you", but we never imagine our first heart break... maybe because it's too painful to even imagine, but in a way the pain of love is was truly changes us.

It Was Good, but It Wasn't SATC
20 January 2014 | by (Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

I knew when the CW took on this project that it was never going to be anything like Sex and the City, they are mainly teen and new adult shows, the CW isn't a station about nudity, violence, and it is very much so not HBO.

Still, being a huge SATC fan, I chose to watch it...I mean what harm can that do? I was board during the start of the episode, it took until just after meeting Larissa to pick up.

After the episode picked up the show was pretty good. I wouldn't say I'll be addicted to the Carrie Diaries, it is a little too stream line for me, and it isn't SATC, but I'll watch it again.
