From episodes 61 ("The Good Fight") and beyond, the credits were altered after the 9/11 attacks. New footage is now present, durning the title and Sarah Jessica Parker's name, that originally featured shots of the Twin Towers. See more »
Mostly watchable, maybe less so the last season and a half
I'm not the intended audience of this show. I didn't watch it during its original run. I saw a couple of episodes last month, and continued watching it.
I've found SATC more entertaining than I thought I would. I'm not a moralist. I don't mind women using foul language. And most importantly, I really don't care about any messages a TV show conveys to its viewers.
Of course the characters, and the situations they find themselves in, are exaggerated and at times shallow. But this is a 25 minute per episode show, trying to wrap the stories of at least 4 characters; what else could you expect? Real life and real women may not be like they are depicted in this show all the time, but they are so from time to time, and SATC captures these moments and highlights them for dramatic effect. Not every talk in life is about politics or environment or global issues. And not everyone is politically correct when amongst friends. You can think of this show as fragments of life, seen through a shape distorting magnifying glass.
Are the stories in SATC ultimately pointless? Maybe so, but this also implies to me that this is not a didactic show, and for me that's a good thing. Let's face it, it's been more than 10 years this show went off the air. You're probably watching this because you don't have anything else to do and you want to escape your life for a little while. If this is the case, SATC will give you just the right amount of real life to be engaging, but not so much as to be annoying.
My most serious complain is the transformation of Carrie after mid-season 5. The character was never mature enough for her age, but after episode 2 or 3 of season 5, she becomes a spoilt little princess, and incredibly superficial. And Charlotte, who was always more a stereotype than a real character, becomes a caricature of herself in season 6.
I don't want to rate SATC. I'm not labeling it as good or bad. I tried to write a non-judgmental review, trying my best to show what it is, rather than what it should have been.
