Are any of you guys 14 year old girls? No*?

Then of course you hate it.

Hey, the CW is talking about trying a Wonder Woman show! So they're not ignoring you guys completely.

I've always found SJP to actually be fairly attractive, perhaps more-so when she was younger and while can certainly see the "flaws" in her that hardly make her look like the usual near-flawless Hollywood typ; SJP has always looked quite attractive to me.

Same way Levar Burton grows up to be John Amos, I guess.

Any reason why this show has SUCH a similar title to The Vampire Diaries?

Re: Sex and the City Prequel: The Carrie Diaries

They had a 10 minute preview on the CW Previews when they were also introducing Arrow, Emily Owens and Beauty and the Beast.

I was reasonably impressed, and with the "completion" of Gossip Girl there is a gap in the Universe to lather with some new teen filth.

Freema Ageman!

Maybe a Romulan traveled back in time, changing Carrie's family history in the process, thus creating an alternate reality. Maybe one with lots of lens flares.

Here's the link to what I read.

http://tvline.com/2013/01/13/the-car...on-1-spoilers/

With an oddly similar comment of...

"I’m confused…so they are using the same “character” to create a completely separate continuity? Did a Romulan go back in time to try and kill her or something?"
:-p

Re: Sex and the City Prequel: The Carrie Diaries

“I wanted to meet her before she had sex, before she fell in love and before she met Manhattan,” said Harris. “I really wanted to explore that in the first season.” = Fuck you, fans! Amy B. Harris. What she's really saying is that the show must start with no sex and it can't be in a city. That's a compelling tribute to the original books.

Well... at least now's our chance to find out if Sex and the City continuity hounds are as rabid as science fiction fans.

"Respect teh canon11! Carrie's dad isn't dead and she hasn't had sex yet!!!11", and so forth.
CW raped my childhood and so on.
Charlotte shot first, etc.

Recipe for laughs and gags: De-raunched series plus continuity assfuck. I can't wait for this show. If it erases Sex and the City from existing, I stand to gain 40+ hours plus back plus two movies!

Solve for X:
[ Sex + City ] - [ Sex + City ] = X

Reminds me of the old Gene Siskel barometer for film criticism: "Is this movie more interesting than candid footage of the actors and directors having lunch?"

Yes, because it has the word "The" in the title.

Re: Sex and the City Prequel: The Carrie Diaries

Just saw the premiere. I probably would have sampled this show then bailed, but I enjoyed Sex and the City and thought this was a good enough compliment to that series that I hope to stick around. The production quality matches that of Sex and the City and I can already see a lot of the older Carrie in this younger version. I'd think that things would start getting exciting when she becomes sexually active, assuming the show gets that far and they don't try to sidestep the issue, but she's been described as more of a romantic, so I can see them downplaying the sexual component.

I don't remember much about Carrie's backstory but I read that this is an issue. I don't like when prequels mess with continuity like this and I hope they can explain away any seeming contradictions.

I also read that when Carrie first moved to the city, she met Samantha Jones, who then became her guide and mentor. Looks like that role is being filled by someone else, but I think Samantha can still fit. This other girl is a bit on the shady side, so maybe Samantha will come to the rescue. If Samantha is indeed one of her first friends in the big city, then she'll probably have to show up pretty soon if the series lasts.

Not time travel.

What about identity theft?

The Carey Bradshaw we've known all these years shows up, switches wallets, and pushes this punk kid under a train.

Re: Sex and the City Prequel: The Carrie Diaries

I didn't watch this, but I just read that they are using the post-9/11 skyline. I'm torn on that - I understand the sensitivity about it, but I really dislike revisionist history.
