The CW Fall 2012 First Impressions
We’ve seen The CW’s new fall and midseason pilots, and while they’re not for review (things often change drastically before the shows are set to premiere), we do want to share our first reactions with you.
There are 10 new scripted shows coming to The CW that were ready to preview — the good (really digging “Arrow”), the questionable (“Beauty and the Beast”? Really?) and the worst new drama of the season (“Cult,” we’re looking at you) — and HuffPost TV staff Maureen Ryan, Maggie Furlong, Jaimie Etkin, Chris Harnick, Alex Moaba and Laura Prudom had plenty of varying opinions.
Some thoughts on “The Carrie Diaries” (which really wasn’t that bad!)
Jaimie Etkin: Watch It I wasn’t expecting to enjoy “The Carrie Diaries,” but I really did. The ’80s setting is fun, AnnaSophia Robb is wonderful in the role of baby Bradshaw and the homages to the HBO series — like Carrie’s pre-writing scrunchie — are very satisfying. But I can’t help but wonder: How does this well-adjusted 15-year-old become such a freaking basketcase on “Sex and the City”?
Maureen Ryan: DVR It It’s cute enough, but pretty insubstantial. Also, I was a teenager in the ’80s. Not everyone wore that much neon. Just sayin’.
More on “The Carrie Diaries” and The CW’s other new shows including “Arrow,” “Emily Owens, M.D.” and more.
