Sex and the City is the best show in television! However, I see the first season as a warm-up to the seasons which follow this one. Also, the theme music is a little bit different. We meet our four heroines: Carrie Bradshaw, the writer; Charlotte York, the conservative one; Samantha Jones, the (...); and Miranda, the sardonic, acid-tongued lawyer. I was a little bit disturbed by the way Carrie talked to the camera in the first few episodes... but the first season kicks off the season by introducing us to the City that Never Sleeps.

EPISODE 1 "SEX AND THE CITY": We meet the four ladies; Mr. Big comes onto the scene; we also meet Sanford Blatch and his opinion on gay relationships and sex; the women discuss (and try out) the theory that women can have sex the same way men can.
EPISODE 2: "MODELS AND MORTALS": The episode is all about models, as Miranda dates a guy obsessed with them (a "modelizer") and Carrie briefly dates a man who is a model.
EPISODE 3: "BAY OF MARRIED PIGS": Carrie visits married friends at their house in the Hamptons and the ladies discuss the differences between married couples and singles. Miranda is set up with a lesbian for a corporate party.
EPISODE 4: "VALLEY OF THE TWENTY-SOMETHING GUYS": Carrie keeps running into Big, and considers dating him; Samantha goes for a guy in his twenties.
EPISODE 5: "THE POWER OF FEMALE SEX": While playing poker the four women discuss the idea of women using sex to gain power; Carrie runs into an old friend of hers who introduces her to a charming French architect.
EPISODE 6: "SECRET SEX": You know that promotional photo of Carrie on the side of the bus in the credits? This is the episode in which that photo is taken.

First she took LA, now she takes Manhattan! With Sex and the City, now in its third season on HBO, Sarah Jessica Parker has created a compulsively watchable series! Parker stars as Carrie Bradshaw, the alter-ego of real-life NYC-based writer Candace Bushnell (the blonde bombshell of Manhattan Sex Columnists!), who is the author of the book which started it all.
Thanks to great writing, real-life NYC backgrounds, and enthusiastic acting by the four female leads, Sex and the City is nearly flawless in its excellence and fun. If it has a flaw, perhaps it is that it is *completely addicting*!
In addition to Parker's Carrie, there's Samantha, the beautiful, fun, (read, quite a bit more promiscuous than even the daring of us would ever be in real life!), and ever-so-spunky PR Executive. Confident, hilarious, and tough, her one-liners are a highlight of the show. Samantha is played by the "grow on you till you absolutely love her" Kim Cattrall. Then there's Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), the lawyer who some at her law firm, where she is trying to make Partner, think is gay. She's also very spunky, and adds another dimension to the four-tette of gals with her dry humour and sarcasm. Finally, there's Charlotte (Kristin Davis), the self-described husband hunter who is much more conservative than the other three, but who still loves men, and who can't wait to find her Mr. Right. The comedy and fun lies in watching her search, often in vain, for just that, in the available (and as we see, sometimes not-so-available) pool of Manhattan men!
To round things out, there are beautiful men to boot! There's Mr.

Sex and the City is, in a few words, the wittyest, funniest, and most entertaining piece of television on the air. With the passing of its British counterpart, "Absolutely Fabulous," thank God that HBO has come up with a show that is intelligent and hilarious. Carrie Bradshaw, a "sex anthropologist" who writes a column about the modern woman's dating woes, finally finds the right man in Mr. Big, although in one second season episode she thinks the relationship is over because he won't let her leave a hair dryer at his apartment. Carrie is the only "single and fabulous" woman that has a stable relationship. Although she sometimes strays, "He was straight and a smoker. Everything that I was looking for that night." Her nympho high society friend Samantha has "survived the dating scene in New York for the past 30 years by becoming a hybrid. The body of a woman with the ego of a man." Samantha at least has the decency to sleep with a man only once before moving on, and on and on and on. Charlotte on the other hand, is a naive good girl who seems to lure bad boys. Miranda is a successful lawyer but is a paranoid woman, suffering from various neurosis. In one episode, she has the fantasy that she will remain single forever and end of dying eaten by her cat. Miranda prevents this by overfeeding her cat. These are all very real and interesting women, whose problems you can watch and say, "Yeah that's exactly what happens!" The show is pure pleasure to behold, with Carrie and her whacked-out friends trying to survive the single life in a New York filled with neverending chaos. I hope that they keep struggling forever, because without Sex and the City, Sunday nights wouldn't be as much fun! This show is definitely for mature people who enjoy watching four women work out problems that we all have in real life, only much much funnier.
