Excellent Episode- HBO at is Best!
1 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was an outstanding episode. One of the great things about HBO shows (especially Sex and the City, The Wire, and The Sopranos) is how the characters, and the situations they are involved in, feel vivid and real. This episode has an interesting variety of situations that the girls encounter. Carrie and Miranda have problems that probably every woman has faced; the guy Carrie is dating (Mr. Big) is constantly staring at other women, and Miranda has trouble making time for her boyfriend. Mr. Big is quite open in his leering at other women, and Carrie feels under-appreciated. She explains her problem to a friend, and her plight seemed so convincing I felt as though a friend of mine was actually going through this. Miranda is a successful attorney, who is obviously busy every working day, and her new boyfriend, Steve, is a bartender, who works evenings, the only time Miranda is free. Steve attempts to spend time with Miranda late at night (after he finishes working) but she feels she needs to go to bed early so she is rested for the next working day. He also tries to spend time with her in the morning, almost causing her to be late for work. Steve is sympathetic because he cares for Miranda deeply, and genuinely wants to be around her, no matter what. Miranda is a little more pragmatic; she also enjoys spending time with Steve, but insists on sticking to her work schedule. Charlotte and Samantha have problems that are a little less conventional. Charlotte is dating a guy who she likes a lot, but is very taken aback to find he is uncircumcised. This discovery leads to her not wanting to have sex with him. Her boyfriend picks up on this, and decides to get circumcised. What surprised me about this is that Charlotte is usually so sweet and easy going, yet here she is completely put off by her boyfriends uncircumcised penis. I expected her to just go with the flow, but she does not. A beautiful woman like her can afford to be selective, and she is quite happy her boyfriend gets trimmed, though it leads to something unfortunate for her. On the topic of surgeries, Samantha encounters an ex who has undergone a sex change operation and named himself after her. Samantha, who usually is hard to fluster, is quite disconcerted by this. As mentioned earlier, this episode has great variety, and that makes it great entertainment.
