You all need to get sex in the city.My husband calls it woman's porn! LOL
You will enjoy it and wont be disappointed.
"Sex and the City: The First Two Episodes" feature a great cast of some of today's hottest young actresses, doing what the average urban professional does, talk about sex. Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) will make you smile, laugh, and savor the wittiness and power the modern woman possesses when it comes to affairs of the bed.
This tape, which contains the premiere episode "Sex & The City" and the second episode "Models & Modelizers" will introduce you to their world of female naughtiness. Chris Noth who plays Mr. Big is wonderful as usual, and if he doesn't make you swoon with his charm and personality, then you have a problem. Sanford, Carrie's best gay friend is also great, and he gives viewers of what it is to be gay and single in New York City.
Purchase this videocassette if you'll like a small taste of what has to be the best show for adults on television. If you do like these episodes, then I encourage you to purchase the entire first series. You'll be a bonafide fan in no time!
Amazingly you can see the difference and the direction this show is taking if you start watching in from Season 1.
Although I must note that when the show first started out it was more of a comedy and now it is more of a drama.
The show in the beginning made me laugh with all it's sexual slurs and comments, and now it makes you misty thinking about their loves and lives and it seems it almost always ends on a sad note, as these girls move on and explore love and loss and breakup and heartaches, and you can't help but go through the emotional trauma along with them.
They say that the 4 characters - Carrie Brandshaw, Charlotte York, Miranda Hobbs, Samantha Jones are supposed to represent all women out there, and sure enough you can see a little bit of yourself in one of the 4 girls.
As a HUGE fan of Carrie and Mr. Big, I love their relationship and the course of events that happen to them in this season.
Season 3 really made Chris Noth - AKA Mr. Big - seem more unlikable to viewers, and he comes back this season as his regular, sauve, handsome, charming self.
One feature I love about the DVD's featured in 3rd and 4th season is the view with Comentary portion. You might want to view all the episodes and then go back to the episodes with Comentary and view those because the writers talk over the show, but it's amazing how much more you can learn about the show and how much attention and detail is put into every single second of this show that you won't even notice half the time unless it is pointed out to you.
A little bit about the characters:
*CARRIE BRADSHAW - It was said that Carrie was supposed to be the forever single girl, and I wish I didn't know that about here because we went through the emotional rollercoaster of her and Mr. Big hoping somehow they would make things work and now her and Aiden, aka the perfect guy, and all along almost knowing that this one will work. But sure enough, she is meant to be single forever. Carrie and Aiden are amazing together, you watch them and it's like you're right there in their living room or in the diner with them, they have an amazing connection together and somehow they just seem to be talking to eachother and not really reading any lines. Carrie goes through another heartache and we wonder how she can do it, her strength is an example to women. A lot of this season is really based on her, and she takes us through a lot of emotions, but as always, it's wonderful!
*CHARLOTTE YORK - After her marriage to Tray McDougal, she really develops more and more of a character and I think she learns a lot about herself. This season is all based on her marriage and struggles with Tray as they somehow try to make things work. But one wonders if they can ever be happy with the many problems that they face, it seems as they tumble over one hurdle another one is just right there again. Again with this relationship as Charlotte and Tray pass hurdle after hurdle, we are sitting there cheering them on, hoping this too will work. Although Charlotte is not meant to be single forever and proves it with her marriage - in sheer haste and desperation - we wonder if she will ever find someone again.
*MIRANDA HOBBS - Another character which learns more and more about herself and realizes she can work and have a personal and life too. With Miranda's pregnancy, she comes into the loop more as well, although her case is not as emotional as Carrie's and Charlotte's, its a definate nice twist to her endless dating. Another relationshion that I think everyone rooted for was that of Miranda and Steve's. After Aiden, Steve seems to be the next perfect guy, that although he has his problems, how he acts with Miranda and treats her is most desirable to almost any women, and the added twist is their baby and trying to maintain a life of seperate-togetherness.
*SAMANTHA JONES - As Miranda put it in one episode 'I think we have to skate home because Hell just froze over' which is how we all felt when Samantha falls in love. We know on many levels that he will be all wrong for her from little things he does and from how careful Samantha is as she predicts the same thing, but against all odds, she finally gives in. Her relationship with Richard is another refreshing twist to her endless dates and sexual 'excursions'. As a viewer, I was getting a little tired of her role in sleeping with every man there is, although I think this was the perfect time to take her into mangomy as the first three seasons the show really explored almost every sexual issue out there by pinning them on the guys she dated. They do a wonderful job in this transition.
If you have seen the episodes on HBO like I have and wonder why bother buying the DVD, trust me if you are a great fan, you will find yourself watching these episodes over and over again.
It's an addicting show which never goes out of style and which true fans can never get tired of!
I personally cannot wait until the 5th season DVD gets released, to all those who are anxious like myself, don't forget to sign up on Amazon.com for the release of season five, if you search season 5 on amazon.com they will tell you that to enter your email address and they will send all the email addresses submitted to the producers to show the demand for the release of the 5th season.
DON'T MISS SEASON SIX ON HBO ONE JUNE 22/2003!
