I would like to know what's in those execs minds when they do things like this. How does there brains work. I would say that there heads doesn't work at all.
The Street was a microcosm of a youthful Wall St. firm at mach speed. As has been popularized today the dialogue happened fast and furious...way faster than in real life. But that is what kept it vibrant. I am at least a generation or two older than the people depicted in the show yet I really related to the energy the show produced. The give and take between characters was very good on both the personal side as well as the professional side. The depictment of this Wall St. firm as both cut throat with good friendships is what life is...especially in the frenetic pace of the business of finance.
I really liked that in character development no one person was all good or all bad. Each inter-twined along the delicate fence of ideals and truth. I really hope that Darren Star Productions finds a new home for this show. I am anxious to continue watching the evolution of the characters and stories.
At the same time this was aired in England I was watching Titans and Popular and The Street was far superior to both but both lasted longer I just don't get it. If you find a place to watch or buy this series do it asap.
You will love this show!!!!
Come on, a show for Wall street? It would be interesting if it wasn't actually a show for the main character's penis, for Christ sake! I pity the Americans. If sex is the only thing you think and act of, you should all commit suicide when you get older and stop doing it. In short - don't watch this pile of crap - it isn't actually for the $street, it is for the peni$$$ This dull show doesn't deserve the 10th row I am pressed to write for the comment.
0/10 from me.
Unlike the Fox Network, Sky One did at least show all the produced episodes before removing it, though I'm damned if I know why - the deadly combination of impenetrable money-making jargon could have been forgiven if creators Jeff Rake and Darren Star (who, what with this, "Grosse Pointe" and "Central Park West" on his CV, should call himself Darren Blackhole... and yes, I do know he was also responsible for "Sex and the City," "Melrose Place" and "Beverly Hills 90210") had remembered to include even ONE character who wasn't a complete slug. My condolences to Jennifer Connelly for getting mixed up in this, and to W.G. Snuffy Walden for contributing another fine theme to a hopeless show.
Plus, any show where a character proclaims the superiority of Xena over Buffy DESERVES to be cancelled.
(Incidentally, am I the only one who thinks the music for the Darren Star Productions logo sounds like the opening notes of the theme from "The Simpsons" lowered an octave or two?)
The writers (creators, or whatever) of 'Sex In the City' have brought us another cute little TV show about one thing...S-E-X.
Just out of curiosity, I tuned into the first episode and changed channels within 5 minutes. I have grown tired of the repeat sex plots on TV these days. Basically, whoever created this show is trying to bring SITC to Fox. I was not impressed.
A show about bimbos trying to gain power on Wallstreet by "opening themselves up" to Wallstreet men may be sound cool to some people, but the idea is getting very worn out. I have no respect for characters as shallow and as the ones I witnessed. I am saddened that stars like Tom Everett Scott, Jennifer Connelly, and Molly Ringwald are present on this show. Talk about a true waste of talent.
