'The Carrie Diaries' gives Carrie Bradshaw a new voice

'The Carrie Diaries' is not replacing 'Sex and the City,' just giving Manhattan a different spin

If you were an avid lover of Sex and the City and Carrie Bradshaw, The Carrie Diaries probably scared you.

How could anyone be as good as Sarah Jessica Parker? Could anyone ever replace Mr. Big, Samantha, Charlotte, or Miranda? But it's just the opposite.

Robb has taken the famous journalist and put a teenage spin on it, as someone who is searching for herself in high school. This issues of her mother’s passing, mean girls, a rebellious sister, and a strict father is not stopping our girl Carrie.

Despite everything, Bradshaw lands an internship in Manhattan and her love affair with the infamous city begins.

The CW drama is only two episodes in but so far, it’s not crashing and burning, according to TVFanatic.com.

The thing about The Carrie Diaries is that they are not trying to re-do SATC, it’s just a different story about Carrie Bradshaw.

And that shows; there have been times during the episodes when Robb’s facial expressions and voice emulated that of Sarah Jessica Parker.

EW's reviewer says “I actually found it kinda refreshing that the show feels a little innocent and retro.”

We’ll just have to sit back and watch whether or not The Carrie Diaries goes all the way to Manhattan or is stuck in Connecticut forever.
