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

Perfect Pilot
30 June 2013 | by (Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

The Sex and the City Pilot "Sex and the City" is probably the best pilot I have ever seen. It is was interesting, had a great rhythm, I loved the way she interacted with the audience, and it followed the first three articles featured in the book so very well.

The girls looks a little older in the pilot than the series, which is odd because it was pilot and is filmed long before episode two.

I thought that this episode was Sarah Jessica-Parker's best hairstyle in the series. It fit her face perfectly.

I wasn't a fan of Charlotte wearing glasses, and her hair in the pilot, they were trying to hard to make her look the same age as the other girls.
