After All the Drama You Do This?!
1 July 2013 | by (Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

I hated this episode. It was the worst one for all of season 1, which is saying a lot because this is one of my top 10 favorite TV shows

Carrie's Part of the episode upset me beyond words. I spent a whole season dealing with all the drama that was Carrie and Mr. Big's relationship and then she dumped him for something so normal. Why would he have her meet his mom before he was ready to marry her or movie in with her?

Miranda's part of the episode made me feel awkward, the way the guy acting during their love scenes made me blush and it is hard to make me blush. It was kind of creepy, I didn't get why she would date such an odd man who was way below her league.

I think that at the end when the relationship between Carrie and Mr. Big ended I was actually happy. It really takes all 6 seasons to fall in love with Mr. Big if you don't like Macho Egocentric men with commitment issues. I felt like Carrie finally had a change to get a real guy and it made me want to keep watching the show.
