Broadcast from until , the original run of the show had a total of 94 episodes. Throughout its six-year run, the show received contributions from various producers, writers, and directors, principally Michael Patrick King. Set and filmed in New York City and based on Candace Bushnell 's book of the same name , the show follows the lives of a group of four women—three in their mid-thirties and one in her forties—who, despite their different natures and ever-changing sex lives, remain inseparable and confide in each other.
Starring Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw , Kim Cattrall as Samantha Jones , Kristin Davis as Charlotte York , and Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes , the quirky series had multiple continuing storylines that tackled relevant and modern social issues such as sexuality , safe sex , promiscuity , and femininity , while exploring the difference between friendships and romantic relationships.
The deliberate omission of the better part of the early lives of the four women was the writers' way of exploring social life—from sex to relationships—through each of their four very different, individual perspectives.
Sex and the City has received both acclaim and criticism for its subjects and characters, and is credited with helping to increase HBO's popularity as a network. The series placed fifth on Entertainment Weekly 's "New TV Classics" list,  and has been listed as one of the best television series of all time by Time in and TV Guide in The series still airs in syndication worldwide.
The show was based in part on writer Candace Bushnell 's book of the same name , compiled from her column at The New York Observer.
Bushnell has said in several interviews that the Carrie Bradshaw in her columns is her alter ego ; when she wrote the "Sex and the City" essays, she used her own name initially, but for privacy reasons, later created the character played in the series by Sarah Jessica Parker. Carrie Bradshaw was a writer living in New York City. Carrie Bradshaw and Candace Bushnell have the same initials, a flourish emphasizing their connection.
Moreover, just as Carrie Bradshaw has articles for the fictional New York Star published as a book in later series, the entire Sex and the City series is based on a compilation of Bushnell's own columns for the New York Observer. According to Parker, "I was flattered but didn't want to do it.
He convinced me, begged me to do it, and I signed a contract. I didn't think it worked" and feared it would end her career. Though Star would not release her, he listened to her concerns and implemented major changes before shooting the first season. I never thought, though, that the show would become what it has become. Carrie Bradshaw Sarah Jessica Parker is the narrator and main protagonist, with each episode structured around her train of thought while writing her weekly column "Sex and the City" for the fictitious paper, the "New York Star.
Stanford Blatch, a gay talent agent from an aristocratic family played by Willie Garson , is Carrie's best friend outside of the other three women. Carrie is entangled with Mr. Big Chris Noth , whose real name is revealed in the final episode Season 6, Episode 8 to be John James Preston, in a tumultuous, on-and-off-again relationship.
In a running joke, whenever Carrie is about to introduce Mr. Big on-camera to another character, she is interrupted before she can say his name.
He is the reason for many of Carrie's breakdowns as he never seems ready to fully commit to her. He is once-divorced by the time the series opens and is a prominent businessman and an aficionado of jazz and cigars. Carrie and Big break up when he leaves New York for a work secondment to Paris and does not show willingness for Carrie to accompany him or continue a long-distance relationship, citing commitment issues.
Carrie is heartbroken and some months later runs into Big at a party in the Hamptons. He is accompanied by his something year old girlfriend, Natasha, whom he met in Paris. Despite this, Carrie attempts to be friends with Big, however this goes awry when he tells her that he and Natasha are getting married, something he'd never considered with Carrie. In season three, Carrie meets and is instantly attracted to up-and-coming Manhattan furniture designer Aidan Shaw John Corbett who becomes her boyfriend.
Aidan is more traditional and patient about relationships than many of Carrie's other love interests and for a while they are happy together. At a furniture show, the pair run into Big and now-wife Natasha, where Mr. Big confides to Carrie that he made a mistake marrying Natasha and wants out. Soon after, Big and Carrie begin an affair, with it ending only when she is caught at Big's apartment by Natasha.
Wracked with guilt, Carrie tells Aidan of the affair on the day of Charlotte's wedding to Trey, and the two break up. They reunite in Season four, when Aidan opens a bar with Miranda's ex, Steve. Carrie realizes she is still in love with Aidan and wins him back.
He struggles to trust her, particularly as Mr. Big has gotten divorced from his wife and he and Carrie have a platonic friendship. Carrie stands firm on her friendship with Big, even inviting him up to Aidan's cabin after a girl had broken up with him. When Carrie's building goes co-op, Aidan offers to buy her apartment and the one next door so they can move in together.
She agrees and later finds an engagement ring in his gym bag. Aidan later proposes and Carrie accepts. Aidan is initially patient at Carrie's reluctance to set a wedding date, but soon begins to push her, suggesting they get married in Hawaii. Carrie has a panic attack whilst trying on wedding dresses with Miranda, and again when Aidan is knocking down the wall between her apartment and the one next door. She confesses to Aidan that she's not ready and needs more time.
He agrees to slow things down but at a Black and White ball not long after, he pressures her to commit, making it clear that he still doesn't trust she's over Big.
Carrie cannot commit and they break up soon after. Aleksandr Petrovsky Mikhail Baryshnikov is a famous artist who becomes Carrie's lover in the final season.
Despite their age difference, he sweeps her off her feet with huge romantic gestures and shows her the foreign pockets of New York she has never seen before. Carrie also makes plans to move to Paris with Aleksandr for his work. The rest of the women are not keen on Aleksandr, particularly Miranda who feels that he is controlling and that Carrie is different around him. On the night before she leaves, Mr.
Big turns up at her home. The two argue in the street with Carrie accusing him of turning up whenever she's happy to ruin things for her. She tells him to leave her alone. When Carrie arrives in Paris, she finds Aleksandr to be frequently absent with work on his art show. She is left to wander the streets of Paris alone day after day and begins to regret her decision.
She confides in Miranda during a phone conversation that she is lonely and that Aleks is neglecting her. Meanwhile, back in New York, Charlotte hears a message Mr. Big leaves Carrie on her answering machine admitting that he loves her. Big to the coffee shop where he enlists the help of Carrie's friends, asking if they think he has a chance. Miranda, armed with the information from Carrie simply says "go get our girl" and Big goes to Paris to win her back. Carrie, having once again been abandoned by Aleksandr having given up the opportunity to go to a party with some new friends to accompany him to a preview of his show , has it out with him in their hotel room and Aleksandr accidentally smacks Carrie in the face and breaks her diamond necklace.
As Carrie is in the lobby, trying to obtain a room for the night, Big walks in. They see each other and he tells her she's "the one" something she's been waiting for their entire relationship and he takes her home to New York. Charlotte York Kristin Davis has had a conventional, privileged Episcopalian Connecticut upbringing and works in an art gallery. Charlotte is a classic over-achiever and perfectionist; a "straight A" student who attended Smith College , where she was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma note that there are no sororities at the real Smith College majoring in art history with a minor in finance.
During the series, it is also revealed that Charlotte was voted homecoming queen, prom queen, "most popular", student body president, and track team captain, in addition to being an active cheerleader and teen model. She is the antithesis of Samantha; optimistic, hopelessly romantic and a believer in true love and soul mates. She places the most emphasis on emotional love as opposed to lust. From the beginning, Charlotte is searching for her " knight in shining armor " and nothing shakes her belief of finding "the one" and getting married and starting a family.
All her dating activity during the show is in pursuit of a long-term, monogamous boyfriend with a view to marriage and as such she typically dates men of 'pedigree' and money bankers, lawyers, doctors etc. Charlotte can be a dark horse and we learn that she once had a dalliance with an Orthodox Jewish artist, she dressed in drag for a portrait and allowed an artist to paint a picture of her vulva. She can be an 'East Side Princess' sometimes and she and Samantha occasionally come to blows over their differing opinions about love and sex.
In season three, Charlotte decides she will be married that year and sets about canvassing her married friends to set her up on dates.
One married friend usurps her blind date to try and start an affair with her. Horrified, she dashes into the street and trips in front of a taxi, carrying Trey MacDougal Kyle MacLachlan , an attractive, old-money, Scottish-American cardiologist with pedigree, a Park Avenue apartment and country estate in Connecticut.
They fall in love at first sight and he appears to be everything she has always wanted. Things move quickly and Charlotte, convinced he is the one, suggests they marry, he agrees and they are married very shortly after having enlisted the help of wedding planner Anthony Marentino; a gay, bitchy Sicilian who is as forceful as Charlotte is timid.
Wishing to 'do things the right way' Charlotte has withheld having sex with Trey, hoping for a romantic and traditional wedding night. On the evening before the big day, she gets drunk with the other women and goes to Trey for sex. Unfortunately it does not go well and Trey reveals he suffers from impotence.
Whilst concerned, Charlotte presses ahead with the wedding, although she confides in Carrie just before walking down the aisle. As the marriage begins things do not get any better in their intimate relationship and Trey refuses to address matters either physically or psychologically, resisting their marriage counselor's advice. Matters are not helped by Trey's overbearing mother Bunny Frances Sternhagen , a manipulative sort who intrudes on Trey and Charlotte's relationship and apartment on a regular basis.
Not long into the marriage on a weekend trip to the MacDougal country estate, Charlotte is caught in a clinch with the hunky gardener and this seals the fate of her marriage to Trey. They separate and Charlotte moves back into her old apartment. While separated, they mend their sexual relationship and get back together. All seems to be well and Charlotte returns to live with Trey. To mark a new beginning and letting go of Bunny's control, she redecorates the apartment and they decide to create a baby room and try for a baby.
Having no luck, Charlotte seeks fertility treatment and is told she has a very low chance of becoming pregnant. Seeking other options, she begins hormone injections and looks into adopting a Chinese baby girl. A combination of these factors once again ignite old tensions with Trey and Bunny, culminating in Trey deciding he no longer wants a family. This blow to her hopes and dreams proves too much for Charlotte and she finishes the marriage once and for all.
When their marriage ends, she meets Harry Goldenblatt Evan Handler , her Jewish divorce lawyer, at the beginning of season five. She is not attracted to him initially but spurred on by Anthony she starts a purely physical relationship with him. Harry is the opposite of Trey; short, bald, hairy, uncouth but funny, passionate and attentive.
Charlotte, against all the odds, becomes pregnant after acupuncture therapy but loses the baby very early on. They later go on to adopt a baby girl, Lily, from China, and it is revealed during Sex and the City: The Movie that Charlotte later naturally conceives and gives birth to the couple's second daughter Rose. The oldest and most sexually confident of the foursome, Samantha Jones Kim Cattrall is an independent businesswoman with a career in public relations PR.
She is confident, strong, and extremely outspoken, and calls herself a "try-sexual" meaning she'll try anything once. Early on in the show, Samantha declares she has given up on relationships and has decided to just have sex "like a man", that is without emotions or feelings and purely for physical gratification.
This is her first stab at monogamy but she soon gets bored and goes back to her old ways. Later, she wins the PR business for hotel magnate Richard Wright James Remar who is the male equivalent of herself; good-looking, sexually carefree and not interested in long-term relationships.
She and Richard soon end up together and Samantha feels herself falling for him and finds herself unattracted to other men. Scared of this, she attempts to hide her feelings but Richard is also falling for her and pursues her with expensive gifts and romantic gestures and despite her reluctance they begin a monogamous relationship.
Not long after, Samantha becomes suspicious of Richard and catches him cheating on her which breaks her heart. They reunite not long after when Richard apologises, but Samantha develops jealousy and is unable to trust him around other women. She therefore ends the relationship before he can break her heart again. He mentions being a recovering alcoholic who attends AA. Smith manages to win Samantha's heart thanks to the strength of their physical connection and his patience with her issues with commitment.
In the final season, Samantha is diagnosed with breast cancer and is subject to chemo. She loses her hair and Smith shaves his head to support her. Miranda Hobbes Cynthia Nixon is a career-minded lawyer with cynical views on relationships and men.
A Harvard Law School graduate from the Philadelphia area, she is Carrie's confidante and voice of reason. In the early seasons she is somewhat portrayed as distrustful of men and this is something she struggles with throughout most of the show.
Carrie sets up Miranda on a blind date with her geeky friend Skipper, but he is too sweet and passive for Miranda. Miranda's main relationship is with bartender Steve Brady David Eigenberg who she meets by chance one night. They have a one-night stand but Steve pursues Miranda, eventually becoming her boyfriend.
Steve and Miranda have a great relationship, but Steve feels uncomfortable with Miranda's success and money given that he makes a low wage.
Things come to a head when Miranda attempts to buy Steve a suit to wear to an event at her law firm. He refuses, maxes out his credit cards to buy it, but then returns it, and breaks up with her, saying that she deserves someone who is more on her level. Later, in season two, Miranda runs from Steve when she sees him on the street, but he goes to her house to confront her. They start hanging out as friends, but eventually end up getting back together, and Steve moves into Miranda's apartment.
Steve is keen to move things forward in their relationship by having a baby, but Miranda cites her career as a barrier to this as she is on Partner track at her law firm. Instead they agree on a puppy which proves to be disaster as she feels she is doing all the work and Steve behaves like an overgrown child. Steve takes Miranda's criticisms to heart and later opens his own bar with Carrie's ex Aiden Shaw. Miranda runs into Steve who tells her about the bar and thanks her for spurring him on.
They begin a friendship of sorts. In season four, we discover that Steve has testicular cancer and Miranda sets out to "help" Steve, realizing that he doesn't have healthcare. She helps him through his operation and subsequent treatment and they become close. Steve confides that he is depressed at losing a testicle. Feeling sorry for him, Miranda has sex with him. Soon after, Miranda discovers she is pregnant something she thought was not possible as she had been diagnosed with a 'lazy ovary'.
At the same time, Charlotte is struggling to get pregnant with Trey's baby and is furious when she discovers that Miranda is not only pregnant, but she is planning to have an abortion.
At the clinic with Carrie, Miranda decides she cannot go through with the procedure and decides to keep the baby. She later gives birth to a son who she names Brady which is also Steve's last name.
The show charts Miranda's struggle as a single, working professional mother and her feelings at losing her old single life. Miranda later realizes she is still in love with Steve.
Unfortunately, before she can confess this to Steve, he announces he has a new girlfriend, Debbie—a much younger girl from his native Queens area of New York. Not wishing to rock the boat, Miranda decides not to tell Steve and things remain platonic between them.
Soon after, a new man moves into her building—Robert Leeds, an attractive African-American doctor who works for the New York Knicks basketball team. He is divorced, handsome, and makes it clear that he is interested in Miranda. They start a relationship that becomes serious when Robert tells Miranda he loves her albeit by giving her a giant cookie with the words "I Love You" written on it in chocolate chips.
Miranda feels unable to say it back to him though and in a moment of epiphany at Brady's first birthday party, she blurts out to Steve that she loves him and is sorry for losing him.
Steve reassures her that he loves her too, and soon after they break up with their respective partners and get back together. They decide to marry in a low-key ceremony in a community garden.
Living together in Miranda's one-bedroom apartment still in the same building as her now-hostile ex, Robert proves to be cramped, and they decide to buy a bigger place and eventually move to a house in Brooklyn much to Miranda's initial dismay. Carrie Bradshaw lives in Manhattan and writes a column called "Sex and the City". At a birthday party for Miranda, Carrie and her friends decide to start having sex "like men", meaning without emotional attachment.
However, she realizes she cannot after getting brushed off by a man she has sex with one time later. Carrie has many chance encounters with a handsome businessman whom Samantha refers to as "Mr. They begin to date, but Carrie is dismayed to find out he is still seeing other people. Although he eventually agrees to exclusivity, he doesn't introduce Carrie to his mother and won't refer to her as "the one", so rather than going on a planned vacation with him, Carrie breaks it off.
Carrie sets up Miranda with her friend Skipper. Miranda and he date on and off; he is more laid back while Miranda is more forceful. After they break up, Miranda sees him with another woman and feels compelled to resume their relationship, but they again break up when he wants exclusivity and she does not. Charlotte dates a marriage-minded man but they clash over china patterns.
She declines to have anal sex with another boyfriend and also consents to pose nude for a famous painter. Samantha sleeps with an artist who likes to videotape his encounters, with Charlotte's doorman, with a married couple, and with others.
When she meets James, who seems utterly perfect for her, she's heartbroken to discover that he has an extremely small penis. Carrie dates a baseball player while on the rebound but breaks it off when she realizes she's not over Big. She then dates a sell-out filmmaker, a shoplifter, and a nice guy she scares away by snooping, and then takes up with Big again. She at first keeps this from her friends.
Her and Big's relationship is rocky, and when he announces that he might have to move to Paris for a year but doesn't overtly invite Carrie to come with him, they break up a second time. Carrie then tries without success to convert a friend-with-benefits to something more, dates a writer with a great family but who is always "early" in bed, and then a recovering alcoholic who uses Carrie to replace his old addiction.
She then runs into Big, returned from Paris, and his new something fiancee, Natasha played by Bridget Moynahan. Miranda dates a dirty talker, fakes it with an ophthalmologist, and tries to adjust to a guy who likes to watch porn during sex. By the time she meets Steve, the bartender, she's unwilling to believe he is as nice as he seems.
They start dating but the differences in their schedules and their finances lead to a breakup. She winds up back in bed with Steve, but not before dating a guy who wants to get caught, a Peeping Tom in the next building, and a divorced dad. Charlotte encounters a legendary purveyor of cunnilingus, a handy actor next door, a widower on the make, a man who undergoes adult circumcision, a famous actor, a too-effeminate pastry chef, a shoe salesman with a foot fetish, and a something guy who gives her crabs.
Despite a brief attempt at couples therapy, Samantha breaks up with James. She then sleeps with a litigator, a salsa dancer, her personal trainer, a sports fan who can only rally when his team does well, and Charlotte's brother. She then meets a man whose penis is too big even for her. The end of Season two also marks the end of characters' talking directly to the camera. Carrie starts off dating a politician, followed by a bisexual person. Big marries Natasha, and Carrie meets Aidan, a furniture maker.
They have a virtually flaw-free relationship until Carrie and Big begin an affair. Miranda and Steve move in together. He tells Miranda he'd like them to have a baby, but a puppy purchase instead alerts Miranda to the fact that they're very different when it comes to maturity.
Steve moves out and Miranda makes partner at her law firm. She also goes on to date a phone sex guy, a fake ER doctor, a guy who doesn't swallow his food, and a police detective.
Charlotte, looking for a husband, dates an investment banker with an anger management problem, a photographer who gets her into menswear, a bad kisser, and a climax name caller. She then meets Trey MacDougal; despite an awkward "proposal", the discovery of his low libido and inability to perform sexually the night before their marriage, and conflict with his domineering mother, the two marry. They begin their marriage with a sexless honeymoon, and as sex remains an ongoing problem in their relationship, the two eventually separate.
Samantha sleeps with a firefighter, a short man, her assistant, a black guy with a disapproving sister, a recreational Viagra user, a guy who tastes bad, Trey's Scottish cousin, a dildo model, and a college-aged virgin. She also has a menopause scare, gets tested for HIV, and buys a new apartment in the Meatpacking District , where she has to make peace with the transgender women on her street.
After Carrie's break-ups with Big and Aidan, she dates a guy who still lives at home, teaches a class at the Learning Annex on how to meet men, gets mugged, and tries to apologize to Natasha.
She and Big also make an attempt at being friends. After a chance meeting with Aidan at the opening of a bar he co-owns, Carrie convinces him to restart their relationship. He moves into her apartment after purchasing it when her building goes co-op and then proposes. Despite her misgivings, Carrie accepts the proposal and then eventually realizes she's not ready for marriage. Despite discussing her concerns and initially agreeing to give her more time, Aidan soon pressures Carrie for marriage.
She realizes this is because he does not trust her, given her past affair with Big. They break up and he moves out, and Carrie purchases her apartment after Charlotte lends her the down payment in the form of the engagement ring she received from Trey.
Charlotte and Trey are living apart but continuing to have marital relations; they eventually reconcile and Charlotte moves back into their shared apartment. They decide to try for a baby but realize Charlotte is reproductively challenged; after fertility treatments and discussing adoption, their marriage breaks apart under the strain and they decide to divorce.
Miranda supports Steve through testicular cancer and surgery. Later, when he feels emasculated by the surgery, they have sex and Miranda gets pregnant. She initially considers an abortion, which is particularly distressing to Charlotte, as she deals with her struggles to get pregnant, but Miranda decides to keep the baby.
Samantha flirts with a priest, has nude photos taken of herself, tries to have a relationship with a lesbian, and sleeps with a baby talker, a wrestling coach, and a farmer. She then lands a big PR account with resolutely single hotel magnate Richard Wright. They begin a relationship that starts out as purely sexual but becomes something more to both of them, and they attempt monogamy.
However, she eventually catches him cheating, and they break up. Carrie spends time by herself in Season Five; she fears this means she will be fired from writing her sex column, but instead a publisher wants to turn the columns into a book.
A book tour lands her in San Francisco, where she reunites briefly with Big. In New York, she meets Jack Berger, a fellow author with whom she feels sparks, but who is attached. Samantha tries again with Richard but finds herself constantly paranoid. On a trip to Atlantic City with Richard and the girls, she cannot overcome her lack of trust in him and breaks it off for good. Miranda is now mother to son Brady and finds it difficult to work, date, and carry on her previous lifestyle.
Steve is supportive, and she falls into bed with him one afternoon, making her question her feelings for him. Charlotte has a run-in with her former mother-in-law over the legalities of the apartment she shared with Trey, and she hires Harry Goldenblatt as her divorce attorney. Despite his physical shortcomings she finds herself attracted to him, and they begin a sexual relationship. She soon finds that she is developing real feelings for him.
Harry, however, reveals that he must marry within his Jewish faith, causing Charlotte to actually consider conversion. Carrie begins dating Jack Berger, who is termed her best 'mental match' of all her relationships. However, his struggles as an author and her success with her upcoming book cause too much conflict between them, and they break up.
Big returns to New York for angioplasty , and Carrie realizes she still has feelings for him; she also realizes he still cannot fully commit. After he returns to Napa, she meets Aleksandr, a famous Russian artist. Aleksandr seems to be attentive to her in a way that Big never was, and he asks her to come to Paris with him.
She does, briefly, but realizes how inattentive he is when working, and she breaks it off with him just as Big arrives in Paris, looking for her, ready to finally commit to her being "the one".
Charlotte decides that life with Harry, who accepts her fertility issues, would be worth converting to Judaism. After this process, she presses Harry to "set the date" in an insulting way and he breaks it off with her. However, they run into each other at a mixer and, after her tearful apology, rekindle their relationship and eventually marry. After fertility treatments fail, they decide to adopt, and eventually learn they have been approved to adopt a child from China.
Once Miranda realizes she's still in love with Steve, he begins a serious relationship with someone else Debbie , and so she does the same with Robert played by Blair Underwood. However, at their son Brady's first birthday party, they reveal their feelings for each other and renew their relationship. Miranda proposes to Steve and they marry in a community park. Needing more room for their growing family, she consents to moving to Brooklyn , where they buy a brownstone. After Steve's mother Mary played by Anne Meara is revealed to have suffered a stroke and subsequent memory loss, she moves in with the couple.
Samantha begins a relationship with a much younger waiter, Jerry Jerrod, who turns out to be a struggling actor. She uses her PR skills to help his career, even changing his name to Smith Jerrod. Despite trying to keep their relationship as casual as her others, she develops true feelings for him. Smith supports her after she is diagnosed with breast cancer, shaving his own head in sympathy after catching her shaving her head when chemotherapy makes her hair fall out.
He also insists on waiting for her when her treatment diminishes her sex drive. When he flies home from his movie shoot just to tell her that he loves her, she replies, "You have meant more to me than any man I've ever known. The season and the series concludes with the four girlfriends reunited in New York City, and with Carrie receiving a phone call from Big which finally reveals his first name, John , telling her that his Napa house is up for sale and he is headed back to New York. Carrie's final voiceover states: And if you find someone to love you you love, well, that's just fabulous.
Sex and the City premiered on HBO , June 6, , and was one of the highest-rated sitcoms of the season. Over the course of its six seasons, Sex and the City was nominated for over 50 Emmy Awards , and won seven: The show has also been nominated for 24 Golden Globe Awards , and won eight. A toast to the wonderful wardrobe from Sex and the City , which taught us that no flower is too big, no skirt too short, and no shoe too expensive. The New York Times in credited Sex and the City and its costume designer Patricia Field with "starting crazes for nameplate necklaces , Manolo Blahnik shoes, flower corsages and visible bra straps ".
Field described the show's influence as "like sitting at the bottom of an atom bomb". Criticism has been expressed about the influence the show has on adolescents and how the images displayed on the show affect the way women and young girls view themselves.
Big it was a false alarm. In the episode "Coulda Woulda Shoulda" 4. Miranda opted against the abortion and throughout season 5 and 6, we saw how Miranda dealt with raising a child as a single mother. There were also two episodes that dealt with sexually transmitted diseases. In the episode "Are we Sluts" 3. In "Running with Scissors" 3. The first clue is in the opening credits of the television show. Carrie is standing in a New York street in a ballet skirt, the sort that toddlers wear.
She is dressed, unmistakably, as a child. And, because she is sex columnist on a newspaper, a bus wearing a huge photo of her in a tiny dress trundles past. And there, before any dialogue hits your ears, you have the two woeful female archetypes that Sex and the City loves—woman as sex object and woman as child In this crisis, she cries and borrows the money for the deposit—what child would do anything else?
Another example that feminism is dead is the popularity of Sex and the City , the HBO show that features and something women sending out the unmistakable messages to females both younger and older that careers, money, looks and, ostensibly, intelligence are nothing compared to doing anything to get a man, including endlessly obsessing about the subject, engaging in loveless or even like-less sexual encounters.
In addition to obsessing about finding and keeping a man, the lead character on the show also routinely hides her true thoughts and feelings from said man.
The show uses voiceovers to reveal Carrie's inner thought life, which is often in conflict with how she is expressing herself externally.
As pop culture expert Ashli L. Dykes points out, " Academic critics, however, disagree on whether Sex and the City was truly anti-feminist , feminist , or post-feminist.
Some argue whatever label is applied to the show, it offered an important contribution "to ongoing dialogue"  and that because it "shows women in a world where they can be feminine, attractive, and feminist at the same time The show has received criticism for how it handles topics such as unexpected pregnancy, with Andrea Press stating that it contrasts with feminist progressive thought.
In one episode, Miranda is faced with an unexpected pregnancy, which causes Carrie to reflect on her own experience of pregnancy and abortion. Critics argue that Carrie's shame when sharing this story with her boyfriend serves to "undermine" the hard-fought freedoms that allowed her choice with "multiple critical perspectives toward the act" .
Critics also note that, while the show is lauded as a champion of progressive feminism, its characters adhere to a strongly traditional view of female gender roles with a focus on appearance, glamour, and consumerism. A central message of the show is that consumption is key, and we are fed constant marketing messages throughout the series. In retrospective analysis of the show, critics have generally reassessed Carrie Bradshaw as an unsympathetic protagonist, despite the show's portrayal of her as a positive figure.
In , Glamour magazine called Carrie "the worst" character on the show, saying that "her brattiness and self-absorption eclipsed her redeeming qualities and even her awesome shoes. Until then, Nussbaum writes, Sex and the City "was sharp, iconoclastic television.
A article in The Guardian entitled "'That show was as white as it gets! Sex and the City's problematic legacy", pointed to the lack of any non-white series regulars and "racial insensitivities" in the show like Carrie's "ghetto gold" reference or Samantha's wearing an afro wig to cover her baldness from chemotherapy. Carrie's calling bisexuality a "layover on the way to Gay Town", or Samantha using transphobic language to refer to the sex workers outside her apartment.
It's true that it was progressive for its time but that doesn't mean contemporary viewers should be dismissive of some of its more problematic content. Season two was broadcast from June until October Season three aired from June until October Season four was broadcast in two parts: Season five, truncated due to Parker's pregnancy, aired on HBO during the summer of The twenty episodes of the final season, season six, aired in two parts: As of , the show is currently syndicated on E!
