An Excellent SATC Episode
4 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Carrie tries to quit smoking to improve her chances with her new boyfriend, Aidan Shaw, a furniture designer. Charlotte has a new boyfriend, Brad, but he turns out to be an irredeemably lousy kisser. Samantha dates Chivon, an African-American, but his sister is no so open-minded.And Miranda makes more time for Steve in her life.

The story line of Carrie is good as she begins her relationship with Aidan.Too bad that they start having problems at the start of their relationship.Also,we still get to see the problems that Miranda and Steve are encountering.Finally,we also get to see serious issues like an inter-racial relationship that Samantha experiences and the non-support she is getting from her beau's family.I think that it is good that the show tackles this sensitive issue.Kudos to SATC for doing it for we barely see a Caucasian and an African-American couple whether in television or even in films.And what a great way to add humor to the episode when Charlotte has encountered kissing problems.LOL
