Not as good as you would expected it to be
13 March 2015 | by Eddie_weinbauerSee all my reviews

As others have mentioned before me,its not quite as black and white as it might come of in the trailers.. Finding Carter starts out pretty interesting, and the 2-3 first episodes are entertaining enough.

But after that is goes into stereotype mode. Prescott does a fairly good job of playing Carter the long lost kidnapped daughter returned home. But Cynthia Watros does the most horrible job of pretending to be a mother,a cop and a struggling wife.

She doesn't look remotely believable as any of the three characters.I mean how many active duty detectives do you know,who walks around in high heels? Carters siblings are mostly one dimensional.

Her little brother is a gamer,and thats basically all you know about him.

Carter's so called twin sister(which doesn't look remotely believable as a twin) is the bright head of the family, the stereotype good girl who just struggles to break out of her role and be bad. And along comes carter soon she's smoking pot and hooks, up with Carters EX boyfriend, a stoner none the less.And her cop mother even condone. So They come up with a few twist and turns along the way,just so you will stick to the end. Mostly it consists of the usual family dramas.Wife cheating,struggling author of a husband,who feels he's a failure cause he can't come up with another best seller etc. I'm kind of amazed they gave it a second season,cause it's really not that great of a storyline. But I will watch it
