A perfect ending to a perfect series

Author: Divine_Goddess from The Arms of Unconsciousness
9 June 2006

It's was a bittersweet experience to see the end of a series that played a pivotal part in our culture. I wouldn't be surprised if this show wouldn't be in the history books of children a few decades from now. Women and men, whether they were single, married, divorced, gay, straight, bi, young, middle-aged, old.... all could identify with these four women and the situations they face. True, they are dramatized and it isn't real life, but we all can see intimate links of our lives with the show. A work of brilliance that would never ever be replaced. On this night women allover tuned into HBO...sipping their cosmopolitans.. gathering their friends... toasting Sex and the City, for the best six years of their lives.

You Got to Love

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

For a series that began so quirky and with self-contained episodes that dealt with the sexual peccadilloes of four successful, single Manhattanites living in a decadent New York City, and then evolved into a cartoon of itself around the ending of Season Four and all throughout Season Five, Season Six had it mature considerably. Gone was the outrageousness that had characterized many of its story lines. Even the comedy seemed strained, but that only made it more intriguing, because it was already known that it was on its way towards the end. Even when from episode to episode (during the first part of the Sixth Season) events were taking place a little too quickly, it served as a prologue for the more heavy themes the series would handle towards its climax.

In this episode, all the plot threads were resolved in a satisfactory way. All of the women had grown up to become real people and not posters for female glamour gone rampant. Charlotte and Harry Goldenblatt finally were able to get their adopted child after a trying phase (and Kristen Davis' expression as she sees the picture of what will be their child is a beauty of self-restraint and overflowing emotion), Miranda dealt with her mother in law's illness (and momentary disappearance from their house) in a masterful sequence that alternated from day to night as Mr. Big was on the search for Carrie in Paris to the beat of the French rap song "Le Belle et le Bad Boy." (That sequence alone is a staple of romantic suspense taken to its extreme.) But by far, and even though she gets less screen time, Kim Cattrall has the most complex scenes in the entire episode which in fact make her character's evolution from power-slut to a woman in love battling breast cancer and her own mortality more poignant. She has, by far, one of the most emotional scenes in the episode, when she tells Smith "You have meant more to me than any man I have ever known."

All in all it's a beautiful, transcendent ending, one that is satisfactory in every possible way down to the scene with the four women walking side-by-side, and the one where Chris Noth closed the series with his signature line.

Great Finale!

A great end of Sex and the City! I always loved the show because it was so funny, charming and romantic! I loved the actresses and all hilarious things they said. The last episode starts on a restaurant in France. Carrie meets Alexandr's ex wife. They wait for Alex, but he calls and says that he can't be there. The ex wife tells about how Alex always used the words "as soon as" in their relationship. And Carrie realizes how lonely she is. What about Mr. Big then? The girls in New York old him to go get Carrie. Great episode. Too bad the show s over. I really enjoyed it. I wonder what the new show is like, "Related". The commercial says "from the creators of Sex and the City". But the actresses even have the same haircuts like the ladies in "..the city".
