Storyline

Columnist Carrie Bradshaw introduces her narrative style by a short story about a British girl who thought the Manhattan manner would be the same. Characters and extras on screen do some of the philosophizing about modern sex life and the life of both sexes she usually does off-screen in her column-style. Among the main cast of four best friends, PR executive Samantha bluntly stands for sex without relational crap, golden spoon-WASP Charlotte for the fairy tale-romantic ideal, while sensitive flirt Carrie herself and stuck-up pragmatic lawyer Miranda seek a middle way; meanwhile gay talent agent Stanford Blatch provides a twisted mirror image. Carrie enjoys using hunk Kurt just for her sexual gratification for a change, then the quartet jumps on the dating game carousel, which never stops in the series. Written by KGF Vissers

Jazz and Sex
28 February 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

We're introduced to the four main protagonists for the first time here and it's a competent beginning. We catch a glimpse of each of the girls' different personalities and ideas about love and relationships. While I get that Miranda is supposed to be the 'feminist' of the group, she's such a ball buster that it's hard to believe any guy would bother to take any interest in her at all. She treats Skipper like dirt and he still pursues her. Not believable. Her abrasive personality and clear disdain of men is a complete turn off. And it's not like she's so beautiful that her looks make up for her prickly nature. A bone of contention: the 'English girl' at the beginning of the episode is supposed to be from London, however, she is clearly Australian with her accent. Not sure why they couldn't have made her from Sydney, or simply cast an actual British actress. The jazz that accompanies this episode is a perfect complement to the seductive themes of sex, lust and attraction. It's a pity it's not woven throughout the entire series. It feels like it could have been another character, like New York. Loved the freeze frame on Carrie at the end. Coupled with the soundtrack it felt very film noir.
