After making me watch Sex and the City with her, my wife astutely observed that at the heart of this show is a great irony. Touted as a “breakout show” lauding feminism and female empowerment, Sex and the City ironically only managed to portray women as more shallow, superficial, petty and empty-headed than virtually any other television show in history (thank creator Darren Star). Far from challenging whatever backward notions might remain that women are not men’s equals, all watching this show would actually do is effectively confirm everything about women that misogynistic chauvinists unfoundedly believe, especially but not limited to the beliefs that women are silly, adolescent, juvenile and totally unencumbered by any burdens of logic, adulthood or maturity. Great progress.

Tiring quickly of Carrie Bradshaw’s infantile and meaningless ponderings–“Is New York all about change?” “Are new myths required for singles?” “Is life in Manhattan like a bagel with cream cheese?” Here’s one: “Is life really all about perpetually asking meaninglessly vacuous questions and then posing witty but ultimately arbitrary responses?”–one is left to wonder what exactly happened to her in childhood that so effectively stunted her emotional development, seemingly forever cementing her personality at about a sixteen/seventeen-year old emotional age. Are we supposed to pity her that “Big” treats her like a little kid, regardless of the fact that she disturbingly acts like an unbalanced little child? I would say no, especially in light of the fact that in real life “Big” and Carrie would probably not be together in the first place.

Another of the show’s many absurdities is the foursome of friends that comprise its main characters. Let’s face it folks, unless these girls grew up together (and in the show they didn’t), these four women would NOT be friends in real life. They would hate each other.

This is about all i need of SATS-3 episodes.

The writing is always witty and i laughed a few times.

What really gets me through this show is Kristin Davis and

Kim Cattrall. With many facial close-ups of the women,I find

it interesting studying the contours of their face. Kristin especially has the biggest eyes i think i’ve ever seen and the shape of Kim’s jawline

alters interestingly according to expression. I sit spellbound watching the lines and form of their faces. I’m perplexed why Kristin pulls her hair back so tightly in some scenes. It actually looks painful! When she lets it down and it hangs so gorgeously around her face ( a perfect example of this is her guest appearance on an epidode of Seinfeld)I know why i watch this show. Kim has no painful appearances with her hair. I always love the way she fixes it. One other thought…I enjoy the opening credits to the show with our beloved World Trade Center towers looming large in a couple shots and several nice closeups of the angular,shiny silver crown of the Chrysler building. It’s interesting to think that this series was pre-911 and pre-tiny cell phones, as Carrie is using a large off-white AT&T cordless from her bedroom. The emphasis on finding men for the ladies which is the guts of the series would probably not fly now. As a matter of fact, I think the concept of Sex and the City has morphed into The L Word.
