I watched the first couple of episodes but had to stop. The whole premise that a kidnapped child after so many years would be dumped back with her biological family with only a bog-standard family therapist helping the whole family is flawed and insulting to the viewers' intelligence.

That "Carter" is an angst filled, rebellious teen is just what many teens go through and the writing of her character flaws and psychological problems didn't feel real. The layers of issues that she would be facing would be greater, more intense, and the help that she would require would be daily hands on support.

This show has its share of strengths and weaknesses, but overall I would say that it's an interesting show to watch. There are many underlying storylines that can be explored in the next season to relieve some suspense, e.g., who assaulted Bird... what is David's connection to Lori... what will happen to Max and Taylor... etc.

I'm not fond of Carter's erratic traits possibly because I cannot relate to her, but I feel like she needs to sort her issues out and make some definite decisions on what she wants! Alot of the actions of the characters and storylines are also questionable and unrealistic in my opinion so I hope that these will be improved in the second season.

Finding Carter follows the story of a girl whose life gets flipped upside down, after a night out with her friends. It features aspects such as drama, romance, action and even a little bit of mystery.

The mother's (Cynthia Watros) plastic surgery is horribly distracting. Every scene she is in I find myself just staring and wondering why anyone would be so afraid to age that they would do that to their face.
Besides that, this show is surprisingly good for an MTV show.

Great show. Very interesting plot and the decisions made in the show feel realistic in the situation they are in. Can't wait to see where this goes.

Finding Carter is a great new show with a lot of potential to be even better than it already is. Many shows have issues in their infancy, but the writing in this show is pretty strong. The characters are intriguing (though I would like to know some more backstory to characters other than Carter, particularly her family members like Taylor and how she dealt with the kidnapping), the storyline has a chance to become something really amazing, and the show is just overall a good watch.

So far, nearly done with season one (I would be done if I had internet at my place!) and I LOVE IT. Oh my god was I hooked! I ate it up a few days in a row! Some things annoy me but I really, really FEEL with the characters! I get scared, excited, embarrassed for them. And it is SUCH a different, unique idea!

Now why is it on a Hiatus?!?!?! You better get your #$ together! lol

Now on first look this is a show for teens but somehow it has a fantastic hook built into the story lines which keeps you wanting more. WORTH a look.
UPDATE: Now on season 2 I just cannot give it the time - so just ticking it off - atleast for now.
