Carrie Bradshaw: [voice over narration] One of the best things about living in a city like New York is leaving it. My friend, Patience and her husband invited me out to the Hamptons for the weekend. Patience and Peter were the perfect married couple. They were fun, smart, and they looked like they fell out of a J. Crew catalogue. If their house wasn't right on the beach, I would've hated them.

An Fairly Good Episode
1 July 2013 | by (Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

The Bay of Married Pigs was a fairly good episode. I found some of the incidents in the episode beyond humorous.

The idea of there being a cold war between Marries and Singles is a great plot for the episode. I feel that cold war in real life as well and I think it is an important issue to cover.

Samantha's part of the episode seems untrue to her personality. I felt like it was poor writing on the staff for this episode.

The format of the episode was okay, but I do wish that there would be more story lines that branch off for the other characters, but it was centered around Carrie and Miranda instead of all four, as it usually is.

I felt weird about Miranda's part of the story, the way she treated her fix up wasn't right, she was nice enough to her, but she just used her in the end.
