For the whole run and 94 episodes of Sex and the City, I loved it and never missed an episode of it. The “sex” was good, the fashions were often charming, the city was beautiful, but the relationships between the ladies and the people were what I loved most.
Sadly, for the years since the series concluded in 2004, I couldn’t even bear to watch one complete episode of the show when it appeared as a re-run. When I saw and heard a few lines of the old jokes, I literally had to flip to another channel. I have also not watched the two films. I suspect the no longer funny jokes and the consumerism in the show just got to me like I couldn’t bear seeing an old good friend become distant.
To end on a happier note, Sex was a good friend and will never be forgotten. Entourage is a TV series about Hollywood lifestyle and male friendship (in its core) that I love a lot. I am eagerly awaiting its seventh season starting June 27, 2010.
