This is a great show, considering it's on MTV
16 August 2014 | by CelraSee all my reviews

I normally don't watch MTV at all, I'm not one of those girls who sits around and watches 'Teen Mom' and all those other fake reality shows MTV likes to air! My Grandfather likes to watch 'Ridiculousness' and that's how I ended up seeing the commercial for 'Finding Carter' and I decided that I would watch the first episode and see how it was and I was not disappointed!

This is what you call a decent show! It sucks you in and makes you want to know what happens next. You want to know how Carter is dealing with all of this and you want to know if she's going to stay with her family that she was reunited with or if she's going to run away with Lori, the woman who kidnapped her and raised her as her own Daughter.

This show will not disappoint you! The acting is amazing and I recently found out the girl who plays Carter is from the U.K. and you can't even tell she has an accent! It also has some drug references in it and I think that it shows how today's teens act and that's another thing I like about it, it shows you the reality of things that could actually happen.

This show makes you want to keep watching for more and I've recommended this show to some friends who all loved it as well. This is one show you'll get hooked on!
