10 Reasons Why Sex And The City Sucks

Sex and The City is a terrible show. After being asked by 4 people if i’m going to see this movie, I had to write something about it.

Here’s 10 Reasons Why Sex And The City Sucks:

1. I don’t know what the word “sassy” means but SITC is supposed to be a sassy show about sassy broads. Virginia Slims are sassy. Mac Books are sassy. BMW convertibles are sassy. I don’t like sassy things.

2. SITC promotes the falsehood that talking crap about your boyfriend with your unhappy, unmarried, old maid friends means you’re working out your relationship problems. Telling your friends embarrassing things about your boyfriend or husband is a violation of your relationship. Imagine if he said that you smell bad when you have the red-vag. That’d be a funny story to tell over a round of cosmos eh?

3. Writing a diary, like the main character does when you’re pushing 40 isn’t introspective it means you’re immature. “Can you believe Todd read my diary?! (gasp)”

4. Sadly, many women lack what many people describe as “a personality” or “identity” and instead of actually developing one: tastes, ideas, beliefs, knowledge— all ingredients to a personality– they look to other women, movies, TV shows and magazines for guidance, oftentimes wholesale. In this case, Sex And The City is a terrible example for these bobble heads.

5. Sex And The City shamelessly lies to it’s (weakminded) viewers by promoting a lifestyle that is purely fictional, should not be imitated by anyone wanting a happy life, and will ultimately keep these same viewers glued to a TV fantasizing about a life they will never have: financial success, interesting partners, careers and personalities.

6. Dingbats think of themselves as a character in this show and correlate their friends to a character in this show. This is more annoying that Swingers references and no it doesn’t make it ok that you’d squat over a bush if you thought there was a snake in it because the redhaired lady on SITC is a skank too. She’s not a real person— not that you are either.

7. While preaching the “we girls gotta stick together” Thelma and Louise message, any casual observer would tell you that those women are terrible for each other and are standing in the way of each other’s growth and their ability to have meaningful relationships. But it’s like a self-cleaning oven, if you act like them, then you’ll always need your group of spinster cougars around to commiserate on how some guy just couldn’t hack it with all you have to offer.

8. This woman looks like Gargamel and I don’t like to look at her.

9. Sex And The City, like Dougie Howser MD, always ends with an introspective touching message that the head cougar writes on her Macbook. This is cheesy and tries to cull sense or meaning from the noise and stupidity. This helps dumb girls think that blowing some guy in a nightclub parking lot can be summed up as one of life’s speed bumps rather than “pretty gross that you blew some guy that wears underwear that is sold in a tube”.

10. The most pernicious lie that SITC wheels out is that being slutty, catty, boy crazy and “sassy” will help you succeed in life. Following the recipe for success demonstrated by Carrie Bradshaw and her pack of upwardly mobile metro cocksmiths will help you become successful like me drinking beer and watching the dodgers could be considered “Baseball Training”. It couldn’t, it’s actually counter- productive to any kind of success or happiness and that chick with red hair looks like Don Knotts with a wig on.

  3. These pathetic SITC individuals are excactly what give women the delusional idea that being a slut at age forty while picking up many STDs along the way is the prime direction to take in life. These sub human inferior life forms that are pure fiction are a blue print for today’s woman, failure, failure, failure. Message to American females: YOU ARE NOT ALL THAT. Get over yourselves, that’s why white males now marry foreign girls. Most of you are losers.

  5. The show appeal to 40 something women who like fiction and live in fantasy land. WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD FIND ANY OF THESE MEN-WOMEN REMOTELY ATTRACTIVE?? Sex -objects at age 53??
    The show was fantasy to appeal to the lowest common demoninator–single, bitter, old maids who bang anyone and anything all the while enjoying a good STD or too—-that is why many American men do NOT marry or marry foreign women –with class and dignity–not sluts in some fantasy Hollywood show.

    • How do you know ‘foreign women all have class and dignity’? How do you know what they did before they came to grace your not so humble abode? Haven’t you heard of people who would do anything to be a U.S. citizen? Please do not make blanket statements about women of any kind, unless you’d like us women to make blanket statements about men…Yes, SITC is fantasy! That is what T.V. is all about! Escape and fantasy…Oh by the way, use ‘spell check’;you spelled ‘two’ too. And American women are more likely to take measures to prevent STD’s. Thank GOD you’re American, huh? And who isn’t bitter about something after the age of 40? You are, I’ll bet. I’m very happy to be single, by the way! ‘Old’ is a frame of mind, not a number.

    • I couldn’t agree more with you, JJB. Sex and the City is the worst ever television show in television and media history to begin. That show is a negative portrayal of modern women. Carrie Bradshaw is no heroine at all. To me, she is more of a villian. She is a materialistic, narcissistic, selfish, shallow, spoilt and a loose homewrecker who steals someone’s husband for herself and only cares about spending, sex and her own needs. Therefore, as a young woman, I don’t understand why ladies my age look up to her.I prefer Penelope Garcia from Criminal Minds anytime than Carrie and co. Last but not least, Sex and City sucks!

    • Then you will surely lose most of them as friends. What a jerk you are. I don’t like all the shows my friends and family like but I don’t try to make them feel stupid for their preferences.

      Also to all, SITC is a fantasy. I love the series but never took it seriously. I never aspired to be like them. I shop at Ross, not Chanel. I’ve never cheated or used men. This show didn’t convert me into a slutty, materialistic bitch. I simply enjoy it because I find it funny and some of the points they make do make sense to me. Many of the episodes put a smile on my face.

      If you all don’t like it, that’s great. You’re allowed to like what you prefer. I won’t go talking about how much your favorite shows suck. I realize that each person is different. Believe it or not, not everyone in the world enjoys watching YOUR favorite shows.

  14. The worst part of the show is the desinger, yuppie, upscale New Yorkish girly blah attitude. Also how
    the main characters seem to want to have people feel sorry for them. Sadly, a lot of sheltered women
    think that they can live a interesting love life in NYC and eventually settle down, but ha ha, the city any city

  22. I have to say that, as a woman myself, I find it pathetic that hoards of other females worship “Carrie” and her band of tramps. This show is so materialistic and is filled with 40-somethings with a vapid and clone-like mind-set.I’ve never been interested in this drivel and you won’t believe the number of times I have to tell some of my female friends that I won’t be accompanying them to watch they’re weekly SATC DVD sessions. In fact, the only DVD series that I’ve ever spent money renting, is The Wire.
    Oh and of course, all these SATC fanatics/clones can’t believe it when I tell them, I’d rather watch The Wire or True Blood, rather than 4 idiots. Hey, that’s a good name for the show, should they decide to re-vamp it. “4 Idiots”.
    Oh wait, there’s already another one: “Lipstick Jungle”. God help me.

  23. I have to say, I totally agree with you about this vapid, aspirational, superficial, amoral, introspective TV series. I think you are right when you say that anyone who emulates these women has their priorities all wrong, and it certainly is no recipe for long-term happiness in relationships or life generally. I am very puzzled by it’s ongoing appeal. I have just seen the promo for the second movie, and it is just so depressingly predictable. Carrie, having been furious that Mr Big had second thoughts about getting married on their wedding day, is now celebrating their second wedding anniversary and is bored, so toys with hooking up with someone else to get some “sparkle” back in her life. Meanwhile, Mr Big seems to have thought it out carefully and expected married life to be like this two years on. I just find these four women very, very high maintenance.

  24. On more thing. I saw an episode where Carrie Bradshaw basically created a rift in her relationship with a lovely author who had just had a book published (a very exciting event for anyone, and he should expect the wholehearted support o fhis girlfriend) and she basically ruined it by making a big deal out of the fact that one his female characters wore a scrunchie in her hair and Carrie insisted that “New York women don’t wear scrunchies”. I’m sorry, but that just takes superficial stupidity to a whole new level. I sat there just thinking, “I want to like this show, but when someone like her is the lead character – and the strongest character at that – what hope is there?”

  25. when this series came out I liked it for a few seasons – i liked that they talked about taboo topics in a funny way. But then of course as with any american show that becomes successful, they got full of themselves and it became about clothes and living a ridiculous lifestyle. It seemd that whatever outfit the girls wore it was fabulous! I swear they could have put “Carrie” in a garbage bag with a gucci belt and the next day you’d see girl after girl walking down the streets of manhatten in the same outfit. anyway I agree that the characters are ridiculous, and why is it that americans prefer to sit in front of the TV and fantasize about unobtainable lives instead of making the most of their own. I recently saw a preview of SITC2 and it looks like it’s going to be even more offensive and ridiculous as the last movie, which means americans will love it and want to emulate it. ok I’m rambling, anyway the show sucks and the characters are pathetic

  27. This could have been funny and insightful. It is not. It is a grammatical horror-show lacking the most fundamental knowledge of the English language (“it’s” as possessive?)Carrie Bradshaw’s “I couldn’t help but wonder,” pales by comparison. But it is your tone, your _loathing_ of older women that is truly disquieting. If you are a woman, do you believe you will not turn 40 some day? And when you do, will you look back at this and feel ill? If you are a man, you hate women, how trite. I suppose your show, about girls in bikinis who cannot speak intelligibly, is far better, and when is that on?

    • Commonenemy… it’s instead of its isn’t grammar, it’s either a typo (in this case) or bad punctuation, but not grammar. Grammar means something else. If you had a better grasp of the language and what words mean you would know that. My _loathing_ (ha great punctuation there graybush) of older women.. hmm. I think this was referring to stupid women and not older women, necessarily. Disquieting eh. I would imagine most women who have self esteem or are successful in life would completely agree with me here. If anything, the point here is that these broads are not to be emulated. I wonder how many cruise line bartenders who can’t speak english have thrown it into your January of 1972 playboy bush

  40. Following the success of Sex and the City, I have decided to produce a TV show called: “Career and the City”, using the same format as “Sex and the City”. The main character is this guy by the name of John Smith – that’s myself; he has a column in the news paper, called: “Career and the city”. One the left side of the bus, there is this commercial that says: “Carrie Bradshaw knows good sex.” On the right side of the bus, there is this other commercial that says: “John Smith knows Career Success.”

    My daily routine, and my life style, would be the following:

    - Wake up at noon everyday.

    - Have a cocktail for breakfast.

    - Go shopping for the latest business suit, Italian tie, latest business haircut, business shoes, latest smart cell phone, and the latest laptop, laptop case, latest computer software for writing resume.

    Go to Starbucks and Kinko’s to rework my resume everyday. I’d experiment with different computer systems, from PC to Mac, different font, different color paper, different way to re-write my resume every day.

    Attend all kinds of career conferences, call recruiters, call HR managers.

    Go to all kinds of job interviews, wearing all different kind of business suit, different ties, and different color brief cases.

    Attend night schools on how to write resumes.

    I became so good at it, I even teach night schools on how to write resumes, and how to get interviewed.

    I receive job offers about twice a month.

    I would shop for new cloths for the new job.

    I would go out drink, celebrate my new job, usually the night before my first day on the job.

    I would be late with a hang-over, for my first day at work.

    80% of the time, I quite after 1 day. The reasons are often the same: my chair is uncomfortable, the person in the next cubicle spoke too loud on the phone, my boss was bossy, my computer’s mouse didn’t like me, I don’t like the mouse pad they gave me because it was the wrong color, they only have black pens, but I really need blue pens, they use Micro$oft Outlook for email, but I insists on using google email. Etc etc.

    15% of the time, I’d get fired within a week. The reasons are often the same: I was late for work all the time, I have trouble follow directions, I fail to understand it’s my first week on the job so I should learn as opposed to make suggestions, I was gossiping on the job and leaked out some commercial secrets, etc etc.

    After I get fired, I would drink with my best friends, and complain about big companies abusing employees.

    3% of the time, I’d almost last 3 mth, and pass my probationary period, and be ready to stay as a permanent employee. But just the 1 week before my 3 mths is up, I’d get so pushy with my boss, asking him to make me the permanent employee, I become very emotional, and boss would fire me for my bad behavior in the office.

    2% of the time, my boss would present me with the offer as a permanent employee, way before 3 mths. My boss would be understanding, supportive, and he’d tell me point blank that why he thinks I am a great employee, with great potential for more. But I’d be secretly job hunting else where, and turn down the offer for permanent employment.

    I’d write a column in the newspaper, about how I know “career success secrets”. This column includes tips like:

    What to wear for interviews.

    What computer to use to type resume.

    What font to use.

    What color paper to use.

    What to watch out for in a nasty employer. “If they don’t offer your coffee at your interview, don’t take the job.”

    10 most important questions to ask at any interview: “Question 1: how much does it pay. Question 2: how many vacation days. Question 3: do they pay over time. Question 4: Is Viagra covered under health insurance.”

    I also have some deep philosophical questions on my column:

    1. Is a blue suit better than a navy blue suit for the job interview?

    2. Should I wear fake glasses?

    3. Did I not get the job because my resume was printed on pink colored paper?

    4. Why do we all have to go to work at 9am?

    5. For those of you who not only have a job, but are also getting promoted, don’t you realize you are hurting my feelings?

    People are going to love my column. They tell me it’s the essential survival guide in the corporate world. They ask me to come and teach career strategy at community colleges. They think my experience is so wonderful and unique; they want to turn my story into a TV series. They will turn it into a book, and translate it into French.

    Finally, by the age of 38, after having a different job every month since I graduated college, I finally realized there is the one job that I truly love, and it’s the first job I ever had right after college: Drive thru window manager at McDonald’s.

    The TV show is such a smash hit success. Millions of young people watch it every week, learning essential skills on career success. Everyone is experimenting with different fonts on their resumes, all thanks to me.

    Do you think I will be able to hold on to my job at McDonald’s? Stay tuned, we are going to make a big screen movie about it. No, we are going to make not 1, but 2, big screen movies about it.

  41. Reasons why sex and the city sucks.
    Reason 11:
    Well, duh, it’s sex and the city!
    I’d rather castrate myself with a spork than watch it.

  42. ”Sex and the City” is the most mindnumbingly horrible show ever. I mean wow, I actually felt my IQ drop down while that dehumanizing woman-horse hybrid thing spewed irrelevant nonsense to a gaggle of repressed chimpdicks that only a 9 year old sexually confused girl with a pencil jammed through her brain can relate to. Maybe its just me? No, no, I think my description hit the spot. Honestly, if not for the fact that I was high out of my mind ( Weed) while watching this I would have went on a murderous rampage.

  43. have you even seen an episode?
    like seriously though?
    half the crap you mention is never talked about in the show. theres only one girl in the show that can be considered a skank. the other 3 go through very long periods of not having sex.
    how can they be only obsessed with themselves and self pity when you also claim they’re only obsessed with men and shopping. everyone is obsessed with the opposite sex.
    they dont have mac books. the show is too old for that. not only that but its sex AND the city. not in the city. you seriously dont have a clue what your taking about.

  45. There are maybe 2 things you got right. I had a friend who would say I was like a certain character and she was like another… it use to piss me off. But I can totally tell you’ve never watched the show – and really don’t know what the definition of a cougar is. There was only one cougar on the show and had only played that role once. The women mostly dated men their age and were not prowling for younger men… so they were not cougars.
    But honestly… aside from the unbelievable life (which I don’t know if it is completely unbelievable) women do talk like them. Women do kiss and tell. Women do talk about how bad their boyfriends are in bed.
    But this isn’t 10 reasons the show sucks – this is 10 reasons who YOU hate the show. Your opinion is respected.

  46. This show just helps perpetuate the notion that women who are unmarried by 30-35ish, are materialistic, self-absorbed bed-hopping skankbags like these. The ridiculous thing is, from what bits of the show I’ve seen, at least 3 out of 4 of the women are constantly complaining about being single, about not being able to find “the one”, are expressing jealousy toward married couples. Right, am I failing to understand something here, or are they? They’re wealthy, they’re obviously able to attract men…what is getting in the way of them settling down besides, um, their own REFUSAL to SETTLE?

    So being selfish, lack-witted, insecure, vain, shallow, self-pitying and borderline impulsive, is supposed define female empowerment these days? Or at least according to Hollywood?

    See, if they were coming at this show from an angle of “this is what’s wrong with some women today”, then it might be better. But how often does the media, and the fans of this show sell these women as strong, feminist icons to be admired? The whole thing would be laughable if it wasn’t so sad.

  48. I am a woman and I second each and every point you mention here. When I was growing up, I had only friends among guys for one simple reason: they all wanted to do something with their lives even if it was something unrealistic like being an astronaut or becoming a champ like Bruce Lee, they wanted to make something of themselves. On the other hand, all the girls I had the misfortune of knowing wanted to be “princesses” or marry this great guy, or whatever other nonsense what was not goal one could work towards, rather something that happens to you while you sit on your butt! I am sorry that even career women have these fantasies and that is reflected in the popularity of SATC, which cuts across various age groups and classes of women.
    And before someone accuses me of being a bitter, disillusioned feminist, let me clarify that I am happily married and have never ever had anyone of the weird problems described by the women in SATC. I am just a decent human being who treats my partner as I would like to be treated myself. Surprising, I have never met the unending parade of “scum” men and “dogs” men that NYC seems to be full off according to SATC. Maybe I am just the luckiest girl in this city, or more likey the facts that I don’t diss my partner around family and friends, opted for a civil marriage and use my salary to help pay for mortgage, chip into our retirement fund and do other boring things like buy groceries for our home instead of buying shoes, eating out all the time, and meeting my shallow mutual admiration club for expensive brunches seasoned with malicious gossip have something to do with it.
    And yeah, I cook for my family, not because I am a slave, but because it is cheaper and healthier in the long run. My husband mows the lawn, fixes my computer and frequently, massages my tired feet at night. Strangely, neither of us is complaining.

  52. I was having dinner with three friends the other night, all of us in our early forties, successful and in happy long-term relationships, when the conversation turned to the phenomenally successful HBO series of the mid-90′s “Sex and the City”.   All four of us had been devotees of the series throughout it’s entire run (including a countdown of days until the movie came out).  However, as we went from our early thirties, to our early forties, we had to wonder (as Carrie would say), what were we thinking?

    Afew years ago, my boyfriend had the unfortunate experience of being holed up with me while I had the flu.  There also happened to be a bad snowstorm and our cable went out so I put in a SATC DVD.  As my boyfriend later said, and now still agrees to, it was the worst eight hours of his life.   He not only found NOTHING appealing, intelligent, humorous or sexy about any of these women, but also said they were a mockery to smart, intelligent women everywhere.   Several other men I know who’ve also had the unfortunate task of watching SATC have said similiar things.  I guess I wasn’t surprised to find there are actually several websites devoted to men who hate SATC.

    Given, apparently at one time we found the trials, tribulations and sexcapades of Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte funny.  However, as we grew older and randomly tuned into the reruns that run endlessly on both E! and Style, we all had to agree that the series was for the most part, ridiculous.

    Looking back now, what is it that Carrie, a woman so many viewers looked up to,  was thinking not only in her clothing  and  man choices, but in her etiquette?  If only we could have a count of how many times she did her “round the mouth lip lick” (when she sticks her tongue out and licks the entire circumference of her mouth).  Refer to the following episodes;  she and Burger having a burger, Steve and Aidan’s bar opening when she’s outside eating a piece of cake, Jazzman feeding her meekreb, meeting Burger on the way to the Hamptons when she has a disgusting glop of ketchup on the corner of her mouth, or in the movie when she’s walking down the street with the copy of Vogue she wants no one to see. What is it with the lip lick?  Does she thinks it’s sexy, appealing? It’s disgusting, yet, at the time, viewers thought she was the bomb! Thank goodness we grew up.

    Forget the clothing choices, most noteably the Heidi ensemble she wore to a picnic in the park with the girls or the “newspaper” dress she wore to stalk Natasha in the restaurant (she wanted Natasha to think she was classy, and what better way to do so than by sleeping with her husband, and having the audacity to stalk her under the guise of apologizing for it).  Just the thing to impress a Park Avenue Princess.   Her choice of men didn’t improve with age or the fact that she wrote about them for a living.   By the time Burger rolled into the picture, the idiot Big was actually starting to look good!  Is it our imagination, or was Burger the most mismatched of all Carrie’s paramours?  Always complaining, he couldn’t accept her fame as an author or the fact that no one wears a scrunchi in publc.  Nor could the poorsport let any comments slide off his back.  He practically killed her on his motorcycle, but instead of strangling him with the Prada shirt, Carrie just forgives him and  walks the red carpet, the carpet on which he embarrassingly left her when he decided he would only ruin the night for her.    However, in as much as we couldn’t stand him, it gave us just a little pleasure to watch him bail on Carrie in the Hamptons when she started prattling on and on about her last relationship.   Just loved the way she tried to look graceful and composed when he took his leather jacket out from under her, tumbling her onto the grass and hopped on his motorcycle and bailed.

    Only one thing gave us more pleasure than to watch Burger dump Carrie and that was to watch Cowgirl Carrie run into Big in the Hamptons, where he introduced her to the lovely Natasha.  Yes, Big, who was still supposed to be in Paris.    There was Carrie, dressed for the “HO” down in a ridiculous outfit, wondering why Big was with Natasha.   Natasha, who was impeccably dressed, giving off a pedigreed aura, style and intelligence (not to mention the “shiny hair” Carrie later whined to Charlotte about), that Carrie would never have the ability to produce. Not one to give up easily, as soon as she wiped the vomit off of her mouth, she decided “being friends” with him would be a sly way of getting him back. But not one to take rejection well, she stormed out of their oh-so-friendly luncheon when he told her that he and Natasha were engaged.  How’d that friendship workout?  With Carrie having an emotional breakdown, because, heaven forbid, Big decided to marry someone with class, intelligence and style.  But Carrie, being desperate for any Big crumbs, then went on to have an affair with Big well into his marriage.  With an apparent need to suddenly gain Natasha’s approval, Carrie played the “let me be your best pal because I’m so in awe of you” by causing Natasha to fall down a flight of stairs, then taking her to the hospital.   What a pal.

    By this time, her “aww shucks” attitude was grating on all of our nerves, especially when we found out just how much of a financial trainwreck she really was (note the episode when Aidan moved out and gave her the option to buy her apartment).  She didn’t have a pot to pee in, but hey, she had a great shoe collection, so lets cheer for her! Not one to master multiplication (because it’s oh-so hard), Miranda actually had to tell her that she’d spent not $4,000.00, but rather $40,000.00 on her shoe collection.  Carrie then had to admit to a loan officer that she didn’t have a checking account, any savings, CD’s or collateral, this after coyly trying to gain the female officers sympathy by stating she was single and out of a horrible relationship.  Hand me a tissue.   Not humiliated enough, she then had the audacity to grovel at Bigs’ feet for financial advice (as if), then went on to hock Charlotte’s engagement ring, but she had on great shoes while she was doing it!

    Trying to act oh-so-chic and sophisticated, Carrie then went on to leave New York for Paris, with a Russian ass who was emotionally, than later, physically abusive to her.  He embarrassed her in front of her friends (note the episodes when the girls stop into his house unannounced and he gives Carrie a verbal lashing for interrupting him,  or the dinner party when he saw nothing even remotely interesting about any of them), but there was Carrie dosey-do’ing all the way to Europe for him, only to get slapped in the face by him for complaining too much.  And there was our heroine, standing there holding her cheek, giving him an explaination as to why she was leaving.  Don’t kick him in the nuts, take the diamond necklace and bail, just stand there and give him an explaination, because he deserves it.  Okayyyy.    And this is someone we found entertaining and inspiring???  Thank God Big came to the rescue in the lobby, where she was crying and picking up her diamonds, only to give her a kick in the pants in the movie by leaving her at the altar.  Oh, I’m sorry, the library.  He left her waiting at the library, because the library is where people get married these days.

    Miranda.  Ugh.  From the first episode,  I think most women wanted to give Miranda a kick in the pants or a slap in her yellow teeth (why did she not whiten her teeth until the second movie, can someone please tell me).  Always bitter, continuously jaded, alternatively whining, Miranda could never be happy for Carrie where Big was concerned.  Then again, Miranda had a hard time being happy for anyone. And she’d let you know it by making a little sour lemon pucker face.   Lets count the lip puckers Miranda did, where she could actually make her entire mouth disappear (refer to the episode where she was on the date with a new guy after she’d gotten braces, or when a thirteen year-old told her that her braces were old-fashioned).  Also, note her ability to say complete sentences without having her top and bottom lips touch (refer to the first movie when Samantha tells her she’s booked them all on the trip that was supposed to be Carries’ honeymoon.  Mirandas’ response is ” I can’t go away, I have a job)”.  Now, say that sentence without your top and bottom lips touching.  Exactly, that’s just how ridiculous Miranda looked.  And even Carrie got in on the act at times, doing the same exact thing.  Her whole two rows of teeth showing while she is trying to play coy and shy for the men (her “aww shucks” act, if you will. Note the episode of Charlotte and Harry’s wedding when she is talking to her one-night stand on the steps of the church).  The only thing more off-putting then Mirandas’ lip puckering, were her table manners (refer to the episode where her and Carrie were having dinner outside at a restaurant and Steve and his new girlfriend came by. There was Miranda “shlurping” down her spaghetti with her trademark “tongue out of the mouth as the forks goes in” pose.  How very sexy to watch a woman who has bad table manners.  And of course, what better sloppy food to have her eat then a big plate of spaghetti, sort of the way commercials put it in front of a two-year old, knowing full well they will make a mess. How sexy to watch a so-called intelligent, Ivy League grad slurping strands of spaghetti up).   Her spaghetti shlurping was almost as sexy as watching her eat the salad with the “extra Ranch” in another episode. What part of any of this was sexy?  Better yet, what part of Miranda did any of us find either sexy or remotely appealing?  She failed miserably at trying to look chic, sexy or confident or able to maintain a stable relationship, the most obvious examples of the latter being the date she went on with the detective.   She had to get sloppy drunk because she was so good looking.  Not only did she not get “any” that night, or any other from him, but when she awoke (alone) from her alcohol induced sleep, she was staring at a card for the local A.A. group.  How about the guy from the gym, who dumped her immediately for being so full of herself after she spent an hour sitting on her sofa, drinking wine, bragging about herself?   In our opinions, though,  nothing holds a candle to the night she had a one-night stand with Steve, then threw him out.  Instead of jumping up and down with happiness that she finally met someone willing to tolerate her miserable self, she treated (and continued to do so), Steve like garbage.  He should’ve taken the clue at their first meeting when she wouldn’t even say “please” when ordering a glass of wine.  But hey, she was upset, because she had just had a huge fight with Carrie.  Over, what else?  Miranda sticking her nose into Carrie’s “Big” business.   After their one-night stand, were we not supposed to figure out Miranda actually liked Steve, but thought playing hard to get would be appealing? And this is a woman others are supposed to look up to?  Again, as Carrie would say  -  what were we thinking? Was I the only one who cheered when Steve fessed up to cheating on her? He should’ve left her alone on the Brooklyn Bridge and taken Debbie and Brady to the zoo for the day.   My boyfriend loves to say that Miranda bears an uncanny resemblence to Cartman from “South Park”.

    Samantha.  Puhleeze (as one of my girlfriends said).   Looking back now, we all see Samantha as an older women, not accepting aging, trying hard to fit in with the young crowd (note ANY of the episodes, but epecially the Hamptons episode where Richards girlfriends put her in her place, as well as Nina telling her that the difference between her and Samantha is that Samantha went to Studio 54, and Nina went to Studio 54, the movie). The only thing more embarrassing about Samantha in the series, was Samantha in the second movie, still trying to pull of looking young, with an overly powdered/made-up face, still “purring” and trying to pull off sexy.  My boyfriend said it was sad to watch, and I have to agree. I was embarrassed for her.   We won’t even touch upon her sexcapades, while at one time they seemed funny, now they just seem sad, pathetic and a dire need for attention.  Of all the men I’ve asked who were familiar with SATC, the consensus was the same – they all felt Samantha was an old dried up bag and wouldn’t touch her if paid.

    It’s kind of hard to cut Charlotte up.  All four of us agreed on this.

    Speaking of the movie, while the first one was watchable, what were they thinking with the second?   There was so much wrong with it, we would have to save that for another article.  The second movie was a disaster on so many levels, the most being the blatant disrespect to the religions and cultures of the Middle East.  Was Carries’ joke about women eating French fries while wearing a Burka supposed to be funny? Flashing her thigh to get the attention of the cab driver? Samantha throwing condoms around in the town square?  Plain disrespectful.  Is it a safe bet to say we have seen the last of these ladies?  Please say yes!

  53. If that is your opinion, alright, but at least be informed before writing such an untrue post. First of all, Carrie does not write a diary, she writes a column about her personal life. Second, it is stupid tu criticize a show for a character’s appearence. Third, no one has said that this show is sassy, and if they have, it is just an opinion (if you do bot know what the word sassy is, look it up). Fourth, it is SATC, not SITC. and last, saying that most woman lack a personality is maybe one of the most ignorant, anti-feminist and discriminative statements that I have heard. In conclusion, please educate yourself and stop writing such crap on the internet.

    I hope that most of the comment here are from men, because this so sad the program is , I think, trying to make us understand that you can be a woman and be independent.you can be a woman and still want things. Some MEN will sleep with the conventional beauties but will not afraid to marry women who challenges them.
    their own opinions. Life is not over when you are forty. I don’t particularly like the show but I LOVE the characters they run thier world.
