If You’re Not Hate Watching Finding Carter Right Now, You’re Doing Summer TV …
July 16, 2014 - Finding Carter
When we started saying people review MTV’s Finding Carter to The Face on a Milk Carton after a uncover premiered final week, I knew we had to watch it. Especially given I’m still holding a hate opposite Kellie Martin for ruining a TV film behind in 1995. Finally, we thought, we can see this classical abduction story brought to life. Also maybe it would enthuse Reeve to start display adult in my dreams again. Has a hunkier hunk ever hunked? we hunk not.
But alas, we was misled. Finding Carter is not The Face on a Milk Carton – even yet both stories revolve around a teenage lady being forced to lapse to her birth family after being lifted by good kidnappers for 13 or so years. And that’s mostly given Carter (Kathryn Prescott from Skins) sucks. Where Janie/Jennie came off as confused and sympathetic, Carter/Lyndon came off as inhuman and sociopathic.
Okay, fine, sociopathic competence be a reach. But a approach this lady attacks her biological mom for wanting to be reunited with her creates no sense. we get being aloof during a transition — being ripped divided from a life we know and being told your mom is a abductor contingency suck. But we don’t get sabotaging her bio mom’s career as a detective. Yeah that happens! (And yes, her mom is a investigator given of march she is.) During a array premiere, Carter has all her new friends lift a waggish antic on her mom. You see, her bio mom thinks Carter’s going to get re-kidnapped by her fugitive-kidnapper-mom, so she goes to a mall with a garland of her investigator friends to stop it. But twiiiisssssttt, Carter and her friends were usually messing with her! The kidnapped mom is still on a lax and Carter’s totes safe. Jokes on bio-mom for caring! Charming, right? It usually gets improved when Carter hooks adult with her bio-twin sister’s vanquish and afterwards overdoses on molly. Like we said, Carter is a treat. A genuine fun to raise. I’m certain her family is soooooo happy they found her. Spoiler alert, her bio-twin sister is not.
As we was examination this final week, we felt myself removing exhilarated and yelling during a TV. “THIS SHOW MAKES NO SENSE,” we kept revelation my couch, “WHY WOULD THEY MAKE THE LEAD SO UNLIKABLE?” and “IF CARTER’S GOING TO BE A HEINOUS BITCH TO HER MOM, WHY NOT AT LEAST BE USEFUL AND TELL HER TO LAY OFF THE BOTOX?!” After spending dual hours (yes, two!) revelation a uncover how most it sucks, we set a array recording on my DVR. Mostly given there’s zero we adore some-more than hate examination teenage dramas that are targeted for people 10 years younger than me. Not given watching The Secret Life of a American Teenager have we felt such a rush.
Since I’m such a kind and inexhaustible person, we wish we to feel a same rush! If you’re like me and we like examination shows simply to make fun of them to yourself, you’ve got to watch Finding Carter tonight. It’s all we wish in a teenage drama, including, but not singular to Alex Saxon, the hawt blonde moppet from The Fosters. (And yes, he plays a youthful derelict with a heart of bullion in this uncover too!) So cancel whatever skeleton we had for tonight and watch it, I’m going to need someone to listen to my rants tomorrow morning.
