    The concept of the show is great, kidnapped kid grows close with mom ' who is not her natural birth-mom' But not being angry at her that she was lied too, all her live is not realistic. She should understand the feelings of her birth mom. But that's why I sense there is more to this story, than just abduction. Kidnap mom knows more. Maybe that is why the cop-mom wants to find her so bad. Carter is an annoying brat most of the times though. She should embrace the concept of have a bigger family now.moreless

    My husband and I both love this show, and we were adults when MTV began. When Finding Carter starts, Carter is 16 and lives with her single mom. It's clear that they have a loving relationship, and Carter is a happy girl. Then Carter and her friends have a little trouble with the local police (as many basically good kids do, and many more just don't get caught). A few hours later, Carter's friends are released, but she has to stay because her fingerprints match those of a child who was kidnapped 13 years earlier. Carter's life is turned upside down; she is immediately sent to live with her real family (mother, father, twin sister, and younger brother). Everyone of them had assumed she was dead. Inner chaos ensues for all of them, but Carter wants only to go back to her old life, living with the woman she has always believed is her real mother. She doesn't remember her original family at all, and making things worse (in Carter's eyes), is that her original mother is a detective hell bent on arresting her other mother. It is so fascinating to watch how the kidnapping changed everything for all of them. The acting is quite good, production values are high, and the plot is one that I have never before seen in a tv series. Except for the lack of nudity and "bad" language, this show could be on HBO. Please watch it without being so judgmental about Carter. Try to remember when you were 16 and how you would feel if your life is ripped apart, and you are sent to live with strangers.

    Then think about each of the other family members, plus Carter's other mother, and how you would feel and deal with these enormous changes in your life. This show deserves to live.moreless
  • Maturity

    1.0
    This show is annoying. Carter is old enough to understand why her mother is overprotective. She has no grasp on reality. My 5 year old understands and cares for people more than she does. Carter's life was taken from her but again ,she is old enough to understand what is going on and why everyone is doing the things that they are doing. She just seems like a crappy person in general. She is too self-centered.moreless
