I never got into Sex And The City when it was showing on HBO. With the movie release this month, I thought that I would give the television series a try. I downloaded the first season of Sex And The City on iTunes and thought that I would give a few episodes a watch.
Two weeks and hours of nearly obsessive watching later, I have decided that this series was one of the most intelligent shows on television. Sure, there are the gratuitous f-bombs and sex scenes that just scream, “We’re on HBO!” If you can wade through the sex talk, there is a gutsy story of four women in New York. Like the proverbial hooker with a heart of gold, Sex And The City has a lot to offer the thinking mind.
Here are my favorite quotes:
From the pre-9-11 shots of New York and the World Trade Center to the picturesque image of Paris, this series is so enjoyable that I think I will have to go back and watch it again at a much slower rate. If you thought that Sex And The City wasn’t for you because it was all about sex, then give this show a try. EVERY time you start feeling like the show is going over the edge, there is a character who complains about it going over the edge and voicing your outrage. It’s witty and it never takes itself too seriously. Enjoy!
