The Carrie Diaries: Season 1, Episode 1 :: Pilot

Jan 15, 2013

This week on The Carrie Diaries (Season 1, Episode 1), the Pilot kicks off with Carrie Bradshaw receiving the internship of a lifetime. Read Kidzworld’s recap of the “Pilot,” which aired on January 14, 2013, to discover what you missed.

Standing Out For The Wrong Reason

While high school student Carrie Bradshaw spent the summer dealing with her mother's death, her best friends Mouse and Maggie were falling in love and losing their virginity's. Upon Carrie's return to school, she feels like everyone's staring at her - the girl who lost her mom. But a new kid at school helps to take her mind off her loss - blond hottie Sebastian Kydd. While everyone is drooling over him, Carrie is thinking back to her fond memories of swimming with him over the summer. And, of course, their kiss. Her first kiss, in fact. 

Troubles At Home

Gawking classmates are the least of Carrie's worries. At home, her 14-year-old sister Dorrit is acting out, wearing too much make up and sneaking out of the house, forcing Carrie to play the mother role. So her father offers Carrie an opportunity that she can't refuse: an internship at a law firm in the city of her dreams.

Carrie's New Man - Manhattan

On her first day in the city, Carrie meets the spunky Larissa, the style editor at Interview Magazine. Larissa has no idea that Carrie's a high school student, but loves her innocent act. She invites Carrie to join her crazy night on the town, pushing her out of her comfort zone and opening her eyes to the glamorous Manhattan lifestyle. As a result, Carrie misses her school dance. Mean girl Donna LaDonna takes the opportunity to win Sebastian Kydd's affections.

The Bottom Line

Outside of the setting and the wild fashions, The Carrie Diaries is not exactly comparable to Sex and the City - the show's adult counterpart. It's a great show for teens as it explores the issues of loss, family struggles, crushes, virginity, heartbreak, passions and new opportunities - essentially all the fazes of growing up. The show delivers strong, loveable characters right from the start. The Pilot episode was an impressive beginning. We suggest everyone give this show a try; you'll be hooked in no time.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
