Carrie Diaries AnnaSophia Robb

"I don't see 'Sex and the City 3' happening," Chris Noth recently told Parade magazine when asked about a third installment of the big-screen series based on the TV series based on the book. "I'm not disappointed if they don't. I miss the early days before it became sort of a circus of attention, when it hadn't become this iconic thing." Meanwhile, Miranda herself, Cynthia Nixon, is happy to move on, telling THR, "I think we had a wonderful ride. I think it's fine to let it go." But if you absolutely need your fix of Carrie Bradshaw and her various shenanigans, time to tune into the CW...

The first trailer for the prequel series "The Carrie Diaries" has dropped and, being a CW show, it looks pretty terrible. Again based on the book by Candance Bushnell, the series will rewind and catch up with Carrie -- now played by AnnaSophia Robb -- in the '80s riding through her senior year of high school, when an internship brings her to Manhattan. All the trademarks of the original show are here including tedious voiceover narration, a new Mr. Big (Sebastian!), and a new gaggle of trendy friends who go to hip parties. All with an extra dose of Daddy issues. 

To be fair, it's about as "good" as we figured, but in the era of "Girls," this feels particularly musty and outdated. Watch below. [The Telegraph]

    AnnaSophia Robb and Freema Agyeman are the only good things about this series.

    See how is not hard to have diversity.... and I love Freema Agyeman. I will watch because of her.

    Seeing Knives Chau in that show is so depressing...

    She's got a black friend and an Asian friend at least, which is more than you can say about Girls.

    "Girls" has got decent actors/writer/director which is more than I can say for the Carrie Diaries.
