Sex and the City, A Review

While I was back home in December for the holidays, I decided I should probably conquer the Sex and the City monster. I had seen episodes here and there, and knew of its wild popularity, but never really knew the show personally.

Let me tell you folks, Sex and the City gets real personal, real quick. How daring for a show in the 90s to portray women as sexual beings, so vividly and so in detail...I've never been more addicted to a show, aside from LOST. But the addiction does not stem from the, ahem, sex scenes. It comes from the well-crafted relationships between the girls, their lovers and everything in between. 

Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda have the conversations that we all have, or at least think about, whether we are admitting it. And so, the characters become relatable and progressive at the same time. There is a sense of womanly strength radiating from the show--through the cool and daring fashion, to the sleek shots of the city to the mere thought that women can be single past 28, and by god, be happy! GASP!

Oh...and the men. I love Aidan. I love Big. I CAN'T CHOOSE. I LOVE THEM BOTH. AHHHH!


Sex and the City will forever be one of my favorites. For its wit, for its philosophical ramblings, for its honesty and for its bravery in putting it all out there. Oh, and quite possibly the best theme song ever?

Thanks Ladies!

    1. Not a fan of this show? I think it's more introspective than it lets on ;)

    2. and...what's my age again? :)

  2. Ha, I'm laughing at Krystal's comment!

    I love SATC, but I didn't watch it until a few years back- a latecomer like you Ashley- I have to remind myself it first came out in the 90s. Definitely ahead of its time.

  3. My absolute favorite tv show everrr. Nothing beats it and I am looking forward to seeing it all again, that will be the third time. But I always let some years pass between, cause I don't want to get tired of it. It's magical!

  4. I think I've seen one episode of this show before. Perhaps I'll have to check it out.

  5. I was devastated when the show ended, the movies were ok but just not the same!
    Love it xx

  6. Like you, I got into the show way after the final season. I loved it so much, I ended up accumulating the entire series over time.

    I was always an Aidan girl. Sure I got the appeal of Big, but Aidan was such a good guy. And he never strung her along for years. He was always straight with Carrie and I liked his whole rugged builds-things-with-his-hands things. Super sexy!

    1. I think I lean towards Aidan as well. But I had a major crush on big, so that's the problem there ;)

  7. good thing you decided to give this show a go, i absolutely LOVE it. i've seen every episode about 7 times and still watch it every time it's on- it just never gets old. and like you i couldnt choose between Aiden and Big either, they were both just so darn perfect. My favorite season was the last one, oh Paris!!
