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

Different than what I expected
28 September 2010 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

I hate the name. Sex and the city? sounded so cheesy and not attractive at all, and all I could think of is rich, beautiful NYC girl talking about shoes, bags or well, sex. But I was beyond surprised after I finish watching the first episode. It was sharp, stylish and accompanied by great acting. I like the first episode, it was done well. Sarah Jessica Parker might not be the hottest TV female star of the 90's, but she surely steal every scene she is in. I think the series reputation as 'chick flick' might be damaged on the eyes of male viewers, though its not as great as football games or X-files but for a romance and comedy genre series? It sure has class!
