Can I just say, I’m 28 and not ashamed that I adore this show. It’s so fun, it doesn’t take itself as seriously as other teen shows on the CW. Yes, it’s escapist, but it’s refreshing as Carrie and co. are suburban teens, not children of socialites who run around snorting coke (although I do appreciate that some of the characters smoke pot and—gasp—no one dies! Oh, and they also have sex and—gasp—nobody immediately gets pregnant and has an awful pregnancy—I’m looking at you, old school 90210 writers…) and sneaking into 21+ clubs and own successful businesses at the ripe old age of 19. It’s sweet without being super saccharine. That’s hard to find these days.
