The much anticipated Carrie Diaries premieres a week tonight on the CW and I’m of mixed feelings.
On one hand, I feel like nothing can compare to Sex and the City. (Including the movies. WTF was SATC 2. Seriously.) The previews make it out to be, like, Jane By Design meets, well, the 80’s.
But then again…
I loved Jane by Design.
And the 80’s.
A friend of mine saw the pilot and said it’s all kinds of awesome, so I’m tuning in for the pilot episode. One thing I’ve read a lot about is Young Carrie (played by AnnaSophia Robb) wears a little “C” necklace, as a nod to the iconic Carrie nameplate worn by Sarah Jessica Parker in the original.
Though Carrie’s actual little “C” is a $678 gold little letter by Alex Woo, this version by Olive Yew is similar to the original.
Even if it is a bit of a knockoff.
Not unlike the Carrie Diaries itself.
