Second Season is Better than the First,
This review is from: Sex and the City: Season 2 (DVD)
The first season of SEX AND THE CITY was wonderful, but the show really began to hit the right notes during the second season they were on the air. The characters become much deeper -- we get to see Carrie caught in the snare of Mr. Big trying desperately to make the impossible work, Samantha abandons her relationship with James and begins to recommit herself to never being committed, Charlotte tries anything and everything to get a man (even dates one she suspects might be gay), and the MOST impressive thing ... Miranda develops a soft, warm relationship with Steve the bartender. But just when you think our four favorite single gals might have it all figured out...the season finale throws everyone of them a curve ball! This is some of the best wrtiting ever for a sit-com, and some of the most wonderful characters on television. Gone is Candace Bushnell's blue print of the book (except for the 20-something episode), so season two develops more of a story with each episode building on the next. And some of the funniest scenes ever ... like Samantha's three way with a gay couple, Charlotte's class on tantric sex, and Carrie having to break up with a guy's mother (played by Valerie Harper). Or when Carrie gets slammed by New York magazine for being SINGLE AND FABULOUS? You will want this collection! They get better and better even watching them a couple of times. And I dare you to watch just one at a time!

I am so puzzled. I never watched the show when it was on TV. I decided to rent the seasons. I rented the first season and watched it. It was OK. I received the second season and the first show, miranda has a child, charlotte has been married and carrie is without anyone. I read your review and I'm wondering what happened to the episodes where Charlotte got married, miranda meets steve and has a kid. What disc is that on???
