Sex and the City...


I had never watched Sex and the City but my best friend is obsessed and I watched the movie with her. I thought it was pretty good, so I decided to give the show a chance. I'm currently on season 3, and I have to admit I don't really love it. It's just eh for me. Please don't hate me for saying this but I don't get the obsession with Carrie. I think that at times she can be really jealous, possessive, and a whiner! I don't hate her, but I like Charlotte the best. It's still entertaining enough to watch I guess...and I do enjoy (even like) certain episodes, but am I missing something? Should I have not watched the movie first? Does it get better past season 3? Why is everyone so darn obsessed?

You've never wathed it!! ahhh...

Carrie was never my favorite.. I always found carrie to be very very very selfish..but she also never tried to make excuses( well, much)

I am another one who hasn't even seen the movie or watched one episode. Didn't really have any interest.

Oh I love Sex & the City! I have to say Carrie's quirkiness is what I like about her, but not much else. Andd i started at season 3 up til the movie, so I think it gets better. ?
OH and I started out loving Charlotte, but I grew to love Sam because she was so confident & hilarious. haha

i agree carrie can be a real whiner and a straight brat some times. but i still LOVE them anyways

i definitely think it gets better after 3, the first few seasons are odd to me.

Haha I can't believe you have never watched it!!
I have always like charlotte the best. Some of her reactions to things are simply priceless.
My favourite season is season 5 and 6 so hopefully you begin to enjoy it more.
I do however love the crazy things carrie wears - even if I would never be caught in any of them, i still think its fun and all of the beautiful quotes (so really I should thank the writers!) xx

Oh, I loveee Sex and the City. My roommate had never seen it either, so this semester we've been going through all of the seasons, and I see what you mean about Carrie. She is a bit much sometimes and can blow things out of proportion and be unbelievably selfish...but I don't know I still adore her.
One of my best friend hates the show and says that Carrie is way too manipulative, so I guess that everyone sees it all differently :)

I think the seasons progressively get better though. I'm a big fan of both parts of six!

I love season 5!! It's great! Hhhmm Charlotte is not my favourite, she's kind of naive... I like Samantha, she makes me laugh!

Season 4 was my ABSOLUTE favourite! so, keep going! I liked the film, but it was more for fans of the show, so I get why you would think that the beginning was different. I too have never liked Carrie - she whines and moans and annoys me. My boyfriend says that NO WOMAN should listen to a word that she says!! But I do love Charlotte - she's so lovely! keep going before you judge!!!

yah i dont know if the order would have changed much how you feel. i do LOVE them all and watching from season one when she was WAY different and to see how far miranda's character has come fashion wise are all the things i love.

hey i think im the only one who doesnt watch gossip girl, so dont worry!

I have never watched the show either and finally watched the film when it came out on DVD a couple weeks ago. It was ok.. not entertaining enough for me.
