You all are amazing I LOVE reading the comments thank you sincerely ❤️ I will continue to recap the series so even if you don’t watch the show or have HBO come back here and watch the recaps! Also let me know if there is another show you want recapped! Thank you all.

It would've been great if Big had never changed his will and Natasha inherited EVERYTHING and kept ALL OF IT forcing Carrie back to being poor. Now that would've been interesting! This shit show is just cringy. Your review is spot on.

I’m 55 and I lost my husband from a heart attack this year - so I should be able to relate to what Carrie is going through. I can’t. The situations are unrealistic, the emotions are obviously fake, and the acting is awful. It’s like the writers have never met, and can’t imagine, what it’s like to be a 55-yr old widow. Missing your husband so much, missing the future you thought you would have, missing the person who was the center of your world - missing their touch, a look, a word. Waking in the night from a nightmare and no one to tell it to to make you feel better. The aimlessness, no motivation, days without showering, eating toast because no point cooking a meal for one, and even if you do, sitting at a table alone. And then there is the guilt and regret. Especially given how she didn’t do anything to try to save him - I did cpr on my husband for 15-minutes until help arrived, and I still feel guilt - I go over and over his last night - did I miss signs. Where is that? She is chasing around town, having lunch with her friends, going to comedy clubs ffs - I’m just not able to relate.

I watched until episode three then gave up. I read a synopsis of the last episode and am glad I gave up on it. I’m three weeks shy of the first year anniversary of my husbands passing - a most horrible year - each day seemed endless, but now it’s almost a year, it seems as if it went so fast - the time-space continuum. We had a hard two years before my husband died - I was a full time carer for my MIL who had Alzheimer’s - she came to live with us as her condition worsened. She died 10-weeks before my husband. So I went from caring for two to caring for none in 10-weeks. I miss them both. I had given up work to care for my mil, and am starting to feel ready to return to full time employment. I have been volunteering with meals on wheels for 6-months now, but that doesn’t take up enough time. I am finding it hard, after three years out of the workforce, to get any response to job applications. I’m (now) 56, not 96, but I guess employers don’t like gaps in employment, no matter how good your reason. Thank you all for you kind words and commiserations, and sharing your stories. Perhaps the writers of sitcoms (?) should speak/read what real people experience before writing such glib storylines.

Most women in their 50s really come into their own. Not caring unnecessarily about what others think about them, open and accepting of others, more relaxed, honest, courageous and good humored and it keeps getting better (I'm 73). What a missed opportunity here. I watched the first one, and had no interest beyond it, but may follow more recaps just for fun. I have no idea why this thread showed up for me, but I decided to comment. Oh well.

@ChrissyTheWickedHippie IKR! Carrie "won" - she has all of Big's money (minus 1 million, but then she gets the insurance!) Plus he can never ever cheat on her - he's DEAD. Yeah, it's tough to lose your husband, but if she loved him at all she would have damned well dialled 911 when she found him collapsed in the shower!

It can definitely be a time we tap more into our inner Samantha if we haven't before, or revive her if she got lost in the day to day bustle of careers, kids, etc. I hope I still feel that way at 73!

@Stephanie Beaver Great comment! Live your life, girl. I’m not sure of the age, it’s different for everyone, but typically, by the time you hit your 50s, you just don’t give a crap. It’s fun. Like with everything, there’s an exception. If you’re consumed with aging, you won’t be happy. Embrace it all. 26- wonderful age. 🙂

Exactly. Miranda busted her ass going to law school, passing the bar, working long hours as a single mother for awhile and she’s being talked down to by a couple of 17yo punks. People in their 20s and 30s don’t run shit in the real world.

Here is how empowered and matured women would have been in the REAL reboot: 1. Carrie would be at the top of her writing game. She would be a best-selling author. She would have started her own publishing company for maverick authors who can’t get publishing deals in the big companies. She could have had Samantha (off-camera) helping her promote them. She could have introduced woke authors. The show should show the differences of opinions on these topics. That’s REAL drama and real life. Miranda would be a partner in a law firm and a noted prosecutor. She would be running for DA. She would be at dealing with the new normal in NYC of no bail and riots. Steve’s business would be struggling because of the pandemic. His business might have been looted during the riots. The girls could be raising funds to help him rebuild it. Miranda would be helping him get his business running again and it would help them rekindle their marriage and bring back the sex better than ever. Brady would be having a nervous breakdown from the stress of trying to be like his parents and compete to get into Harvard. They could show the cost of that. Charlotte and Harry would be running a charitable foundation that nurtures new ventures in the arts and helps support them after everything closed down in 2020. Her eldest daughter might have anorexia. She might be struggling to get into the performing arts in NYC and all the difficulties in that. Rose could have friends that are already experimenting with sex and drugs and have parents more interested in their own upscale NYC lives than their children’s lives. Finally, Big would have cheated on his third wife as he did with with his first two. For comic relief, the ladies would sit around and fantasise about how to bump him off. Coincidentally, he would die by getting pushed into a subway train in Penn Station. Carrie would feel guilty for wishing him dead. The girls would comfort her in their sarcastic way. He would appear in Carrie’s dreams and beg forgiveness but she is over it. She gets a psychic reading and tells Big to bugger off forever. She meets a new author she is publishing who is much younger and he is finally a great match for her. Neil Patrick King needs to stop making this show about him and his agenda. His writers need to stop mentioning age every five seconds unless it’s about hot flashes. There’s plenty to say about career women in their fifties plus deal with the culture wars without all the contrivances.

Well, in fairness, when it's the one toilet in a place, it usually will have the "for everyone" sign. In the public library in my part of Dublin, they had two toilets, one female, one male. I once saw this little girl dancing outside them - she needed to go, but didn't date go into the men's. (It was a single toilet, like a handicapped one) I had to give her "permission" to use the "boy's one" 😄

@Ant A they have always been with us. In my circles they are freer to explore and or come out. Of course they aren’t going to be open in those places you mention. They would be shunned, killed, arrested etc. Representation is important. It’s too bad they did such a shitty job with the writing in all the areas.

@Jackie Anderson in LA which is a huge metropolitan city and state in the USA. Not in the world, it is your personal experience of a few people, I'd guess between 5-10. I'm in the UK and it is probably way less that even 0.05% of children . Think globally. How many non binary people live in Saudi Arabia? Israel? Sri Lanka? this show is based in NY and not LA. I'm sure it depends on the circles of people you know and associate with. Something tells me that in a Jewish family in NY it is less likely. There is something about pushing the Liberal agenda that even makes liberals annoyed. I'm liberal but I think SATC are taking the piss.

@DonorFan I don’t think it’s distain until it’s shoved down our throats. You want to be gay, bisexual, non binary or Trans… go ahead. But don’t expect people to react positive to it when it’s shoved down their throats. Accept that not everyone agrees with this as you may not agree with someone else’s life style. I think people are just tired of it being brought up all the time. Can’t a show just be for entertainment? Why do politics, religion or sexual orientation need to be discussed to the point where it’s no longer enjoyable to watch a show? I use to love this show. This rendition of it is awful! The show use to just be light hearted and fun. Took your mind off the reality of the world. Cause trust me, it was just as messed up in the 90’s as it is now. It’s just more obvious and in your face. But at least you had an hour to disengage from the world and enjoy the show and laugh. Now it’s all serious. No laughs and reminder of how messed up this world is. Who needs that show? No one. They should have left well alone and never brought back the show.

The Golden Girls had actresses that were comedy by themselves and together. The writers also loved working on the show. One of the best shows ever created on tv. There's even a funny Robot Chicken sketch where its the Golden Girls doing a parody of Sex in The City. Still better than Carrie and the other characters.

@Equatorial Journey I agree, the backlash just perpetuates all the ideal standards women are constantly expected to live up to. These characters had their problems then, and they have some other/or the same now. I never liked Carrie's behaviour, but she is an interesting raw characters.We could learn a lot about ourselves just by wondering why we react to certain characters' flaws the way we do.

Will the series ever mention the dreaded "M" word--menopause which may be causing all of the ladies to over-react/over-drink/over-explain things/have sexual dysfunction? Not shaming it, just being real here, having to go through all of the weird changes myself this past year. I remember Samantha going through it openly in the second movie in Dubai. And she did it with glamour and humor! Still praying this show will improve. Seriously, the fashion is AWFUL for everyone!! WTF. It's NYC!! Do better there, at least. 🤪

1. SATC without Samanta is ridiculous.. Samanta was the sex.. And now it's just a lame city. 2. The plot twists are so uncreative and boring. There were at least 50 cooler versions they could have made. 3. Killing Big and making Carry single again after everything that she went through is cinic for me. 4. This LGBT new character is a little too modern for this type of show. They should have had more diversity from the beginning of the movies rather than compensating for it on steroids now. Every normal mother would get mad if she sees her son getting high by a stranger in front of her. 5. All of the characters developments seem unlikely. This is not the way they should have been. 6. Everything looks so desperate. The show has lost its good fun vibe. They made single ladies in their 30s and 40s cool and vibrant. They should have presented the 50s in the same way. Sad.

Oh yes. I hate that "Che" character. She just doesn't fit into the kind of show SATC was about. She actually played a lesbian on Grey's anatomy and didn't act like that.

This show is so awful. Like you say, it's clear the writers have no idea how 55 year old women actually think, outside of the Hollywood bubble where youth and fashion is everything. They can't even imagine that women might be comfortable in themselves and have bigger things to worry about than "omg I'm so old / we're so old / my husband is so old". There's also this pandering to the 20-something viewpoint on things that just doesn't feel organic at all. Forced wokeness is probably the best term for it. It feels like these characters are having the reaction a Gen Z-er would have to events they would almost certainly have a different perspective on. I know Hollywood is a bubble, so the actresses probably share these opinions themselves. But out in the real world? A lawyer? A stay-at-home mom who converted to Judaism for her husband? I just don't buy that these women would think the way the show depicts them thinking. Carrie, MAYBE, I can see trying to cling to the zeitgeist in this way. But the rest of them? I'm sorry, but Miranda would not be this clueless about race. And she's a lawyer. She's conditioned to look at things critically, and she was always the character who reached for the truth, even when that truth was ugly. Miranda would not look at a woman like Che and see this super cool comedian who makes her tongue tied. She would see a woman who has internalized misogyny and homophobia to such an extent that she thinks her choice of fashion and attraction to other women literally makes her less of a woman somehow. Miranda (and most 55 year old women) would not be impressed by this. If anything, the two characters would butt heads, as Miranda would challenge her on this BS and Che would not have any real comeback to being put on the spot about it. The kind of pseudoacademic waffle that fools kids on the internet is not going to fly with a cut-throat lawyer like Miranda. This is a case where Cynthia Nixon's values and beliefs are being mapped onto her character, and it just doesn't feel right. I'm open to the idea of Miranda exploring her sexuality and finding out that maybe her tastes aren't what she always thought. Maybe she is attracted to women too. Late in life coming out is real, particularly for women, and it could be a great storyline. But it has to be done in a way that respects the character, and respects her relationship with Steve as something that was clearly shown to us to be real. If this is the direction they wanted to go in, I don't know why they didn't just break up the couple off screen and show us them co-parenting post divorce. Throwing Steve's character under the bus like this is not the way to do it. Especially as he is one of the few working class characters the show even has. And I'm sorry, but if Miranda falls in love with a woman, it has to be someone I could imagine her character respecting. Which Che just isn't. Che is like an overgrown kid, with her juvenile comedy and willingness to smoke pot with a seventeen year old. At a FUNERAL. This is a person Miranda would be scornful of, not go gooey-eyed over. (By the way, "smoking blowbacks as a lesbian awakening" is a trope quite literally borrowed from a teen drama. It was in British drama Skins ten years ago. Which really illustrates the point. Whoever is supposed to have written these scripts, there's no way they weren't actually written by someone in, at the latest, their early 30s. There is a total, frustrating lack of imagination for what lesbian sexual awakening might actually look like for 55 year old Miranda Hobbs. No attempt whatsoever to make it organic to her character.) I feel the same about Charlotte. It's clear the writers see her as some kind of "middle aged annoying privileged white lady who doesn't get it". Like they're projecting their own mommy issues onto the character. And it's true Charlotte is a a born WASP, it's true she likes things just so and can be a romantic. But she's not self-absorbed. She wouldn't make Big's death all about her. And while it's true she would probably be attached to the idea of dressing her daughter up like a mini me, I don't think she would be so obsessed with it that she would risk her daughter's happiness over her choice in clothes. Especially not when she has another daughter happy to play along, and has Harry to keep her grounded if she starts getting too bound up in the fantasy of her daughter over the reality of who she is. Charlotte would get over it and let Rose be more of a tomboy. Even though her definition of a tomboy would probably still be very dapper and well put together. Charlotte grew up in the 80s, a pretty gender fluid time. Even if it's not her own preferred aesthetic, she wouldn't be unaware of the idea that androgynous fashion exists, and doesn't necessarily "mean" anything about her child. This honestly feels like another instance of Cynthia Nixon's private life being projected onto the characters in the show. Nixon had a child she supported in transition, so none of the SATC ladies are going to ask the tough questions or criticize child transition. Even though this is a hot button issue. (Sorry, but Anthony was right. Kids are impressionable and go through phases, especially as teeangers. The duty of care of a parent is to guide them through that with patience. Not go along uncritically with every idea they have.) For me, Charlotte believing her daughter has some kind of gendered soul and turning her into a life-long medical patient - destroying her physical health on the flimsy pretext that this is "the only way" to save her mental health - would be her failing really horrifically as a parent. I'm angry beyond words that this is being presented to us as some kind of life lesson for Charlotte, or as a story with a happy ending for Rose. And I think the silent majority of parents will feel the same watching it. The writers are making a mistake if they think the loud voices of Gen Z and Millennials on Twitter are reflective of the views of their actual audience. Which is women in their fifties. You know, the hated "Karens"? The kind of women who not only DON'T think JK Rowling is some kind of evil bigoted witch, but are really uncomfortable with the witch hunt against her. That's the average audience for AJLT. Most of these women won't dare speak up online about why they hate these aspects of the show. But they will criticize other things instead and / or quietly turn off the show. And Gen Z aren't going to step in to fill the viewership void, because ageism, and because this show isn't supposed to be "for" them anyway. If this trainwreck proves anything, it's that we need the voices of more older women, outside of the Hollywood nepotism / old money bubble, in writers rooms. Because this perspective on mid fifties women is just embarrassing. They try so hard to tell us the women are out of touch, but what I see most of all are writers who are painfully out of touch with their audience.

I LOVE this post!! Thank you for speaking so much sense!! To add to what you said, there is a bit where, when asked how college is going, Miranda answers “well now that I know everyone’s pronouns, pretty good” In real life, this would have been said with an eye roll and a laugh!! As you said, women who have lived a bit of life, see this whole “wokeness” as the nonsense that it is!!

So Steve turns 55 and suddenly goes deaf?!? And to make sure we know, they give him the old fashioned ones that are huge and go behind the ear. I think they have enough money to afford the "in the ear canal" model. They are really overdoing the "Hey, we're older than we used to be, and we're going to beat you to the punch so you can't make fun of us for being old!" SOOOOOO contrived.

I just find the show to be depressing. After all these years, Carrie is still displaying the same insecurities….searching through her husband’s belongings, needing to hunt down Natasha. I agree with just about everything you said. They all seem a little over the top. The podcast is awful and not a fan of how they’ve developed the characters. Stanford was lovable in SITC… but not so much now. The age comments are ridiculous….I feel like they are talking about 100 year olds. The comment made by Miranda to Carrie about being the only 55 yr old on the steps…who says that!?! It’s so focused on getting old, it’s like the “good parts” of life are over. This is a mind set that people adopt but not people who choose to live their life, and choose to be happy and enjoy each moment.

Most of us feel relief with age - we don't have to go through all the stress and insecurity anymore. We've figured out no one's watching us (or we just don't care anymore), so we do what makes us feel comfortable. Yes, there can be unexpected trauma...but most of us have accepted that the world does not revolve around us.

Especially clueless about 55 yr old on steps. As a professor for many years I can tell you the classes are full of middle aged people going back to school to be teachers, or another change of career as that's the age you realize you've been an employed zombie most of your life and you now need meaning and purpose. You need to pursue what's truly important to you, having lived long enough now to figure it out. It's SO incredibly clueless of the writers to not be in touch with what's happening in universities. I had students as old as 82 working toward degrees. Unbelievable.

Couldn't agree more with this synopsis. It's painful watching how bad this show is. I also agree with a previous comment that Cynthia Nixon is actually a good actress, (her performance in WIT at the Manhattan Theatre Club a few years back was wonderful) but come on? She's a lawyer. She had a black boyfriend in previous episodes, but now she doesn't know how to talk to anyone who is diverse? Not only doesn't know how to talk, but acts like an embarrassed 15 year-old. It's totally unbelievable. The worst part is that the writers actually think we are so stupid, we would buy this? Clearly from the number of comments, I am not alone when I say that this show jumped the shark at episode one.

I've read many explanations for why they killed Big but none of them work for me. After 6 seasons of really wanting and hoping for a happy ending to Carrie and Big (and then 2 more in movies), I'm realizing that I just wanted to see them happy together as a couple facing normal relationship stuff after menopause and retirement. I have zero desire to watch Carrie, or ANY of them, back out in the dating scene. We got to know the ladies through their single lives. I wish we could have gotten to know them again in their married lives.

A note about the puffy-sleeved shirts: I'm not saying this is the case but Charlotte's stylists could be choosing shirts that look like this to hide any upper-arm fat? For some reason it seems like the writers are making it a point to make sure that we the audience know that EVERYONE IS OLDER now, but then don't want us to SEE that they're older now. Like Miranda's grey hair, they make it a point to TELL US that she has grey hair now but it looks like it's been colored enough that it looks like a stylish choice and not just a "I don't feel like dyeing my hair so I'm not going to." Her hair literally looks like it has highlights. Maybe Cynthia is just blessed though. But I really do think the fashion this season is to hide the fact that the actors have all aged. They don't want us to see that they've aged otherwise it somehow ruins the vibe that "We can be fabulous at any age because this is Sex and the City." This really makes me wonder how they would've handled Samantha's character because even though in the original show they made it a point to let us know that Samantha was aging (grey pubic hair, menopause) they still had her present herself in a way that was true to her character. I just can't see Samantha in a show like this. Plus, if they're so woke now maybe they should normalize what aging looks like rather than trying to hide it from us or glamorize it or make it into some funny moment. But maybe I'm being insensitive and all of the wardrobe and hair options are upon request of the actresses' preferences.

Charlotte is a good friend. She has this gift of foreseeing something bad or preventable is about to happen, getting worrying, and expressing her feelings. In this case, is with Miranda and her possible drinking problem but Carrie again said it's nothing. Last time, in movie two, when Charlotte told Carrie that she would play with fire if she went out with Aidan; Carrie didn't listen and it happened, Carrie and Aidan kissed. The other time is with the money lending issue. Carrie should trust more in Charlotte's judgment.

Kristen Davis was stunning and we all age but she has done it all wrong. Imagine how beautiful she would look without the fillers 🤷🏻‍♀️I CANT STAND Che oh my gosh talking about shoving it in your face I have to fast forward the scenes.

I only put make up (my lazy version, press powder, lipstick and maybe a little eye shadow depending on how imbitious I am) when I'm in the mood but it's rare now with the Covid fashion 😷. Now I could just get up and go in public with hair pin up in my sweat and not have worry how I look because I know I'm clean and took care of my self. I am more happy with my self now where as in my younger year I was so insecure and would never leave the house looking like that.

As much as I loved and still love the original SATC, after watching every episode for the hundreth time, I finally realized what a self absorbed, needy, whiny asshole Carrie really was! That said, the dynamic just worked between the 4 friends. Now the writers have managed to make these characters so uninteresting and while I appreciate being "woke" they are trying way too hard to introduce too many cliches at once, non binary, transgender, black friends, the thing is, they should have had those characters all along anyway.

I get what you are saying about the acting of Miranda's character, but honestly this is the writers' fault. They did the same shit in that God awful second movie. They made her this ridiculous caricature of who Miranda was in the series - just yelling and cheering on her friends, so cringe, very much like this. I don't blame this on Cynthia Nixon; she is a good actress. Look at her body of work. I place this shit on the writers. They are obliterating her character and it's tragic. Alcoholic? Going to have an affair with this non-binary character after all that she and Steve have been through? Fuck you writers of AJLT LOL! I get some might not have liked the character of Miranda in the series - she was the less glamorous one, but she was the Harvard grad, well accomplished lawyer, witty and very loyal to her friends. However, she really grew through the series in her relationship with Steve, Brady and especially Steve's Mom. I hate what they have done to her since.

Every "potentially problematic" sentence is followed by "oh but actually this is problematic in case you couldn't tell, I wasn't ACTUALLY being serious while making this joke, please don't be offended". Che is absolutely the worst new character in the show. As for the rest, in an age of influencers and rich teenagers off TikTok and Instagram, Sex and the City has no place at all. We're going through a pandemic and we want to eat the rich more than ever. It's not fun to fetishize glamorous lifestyles anymore.

What is strange about a man (or a woman) leaving a small part of their estate to their ex-partner? There was great love once, and it is just a parting gift. I know 1 million sounds a lot, but Big was obviously worth 10s of millions. Carrie has to make a drama over everything.

Perhaps one (or both) of Natasha's sons are Bigs? Doubt it but that could happen in this trainwreck of a reboot. Carrie seems to think these things happen to her while indeed she brings much of this on herself. She's unaware and selfish.

Okay, IF Kristen Davis was actually allowing herself to age naturally, I would have ZERO complaints. But what she did to herself, probably because of a demand from producers, etc is just HORRIBLE. Actresses need to STOP this! They will never stop being pressured to do this if they don't start standing up and saying "NO, I'm not going to make myself look like some kind of bloated space alien!" And OMFG this show!! What is the point of any of this show? It just feels like there's absolutely no point to any of this. Dear God! Thank you for taking one for the team and watching this drek for all of us.

Yep actors should be able to move their faces to show emotions. Some really good actors get criticized when they have too much botox and look stiff. But when some "not so good" actors do this, it's because they have to stay young for Hollywood and let's not age shame them lol.

I'm watching your reaction to this episode just to see if I can bear watching it. It's too soon for me, Carrie isn't going through normal grieving but jumps right out to a "comedy" club with the girls really puts me off more. (I get it It's Che's night but Carrie's character should've stayed that one out, when people die It's hard enough to eat). I'm dreading the forced wokeness, predictable plot with Miranda and Aidan coming back to be a Big bandaid. I can just hear the writers, "part of the audience always wanted Carrie with Aidan, let's just do that they'll forget Big" ugh I wish they'd scraped this. And seeing the preview of Carrie giving up their apartment standing in the closet when the lady says "it's all got to go" at 55 with all her money and whatever Big would leave, plus life insurance our Carrie would still have a dream closet she could afford her old apartment and whatever else she wanted to move into that has the room a 55 yr old woman needs. I read an article that pointed out her apartment didn't have a couch, there wasn't even room for one. Nice to keep the apartment, not looking forward to seeing her move from luxury to her 20 to 30 something apartment full time. Another non 50s move, bad enough they want everyone acting like they're late 60s and trying to be woke, the reasons not to like this never end. I can't believe they killed the show but this painful.

One thing I noticed about the acting is that everyone seems tired, like they're just going through the motions, and it just isnt believable. There's no excitement or energy in the characters at all. Both Miranda and Charlotte's characters are more caricatures of who they were in the original series. Yeah, I get it, they are older.

@theEarthChildx I just want every character to be more than their skin colour or sexual orientation. I just watched Yellowjackets and they did it perfectly with one of their lead character, who happens to be a person of colour, as well as gay. No awkward cringe, like the scene with Miranda and the professor, no one fixates on race. The characters actually have depth and are not defined by their gender, race or sexuality.

Charlotte's friend is the only one that kinda makes sense IMO, the others aren't even given enough room for character development, they're just there to counterpart the main characters and make them look like these dumb, old white women. I had thought that maybe the professor would have a freaky sex life and would offer comedic relief but no, another downer, she's struggling with infertility. And Che is just a caricature.

The issue I had with the first 3 episodes is the toxic wokeness and this weird reminder of age. I think there was a real missed opportunity to address what the pandemic affect has been on the wealthy and their ability to earn income. This would have been an interesting way of writing about Samantha's possible money problems. Perhaps it could have been a message to the audience that rich people may be perpetrating a front as well. I think I was mostly disturbed about the toxic wokeness on so many levels. I think instead of Miranda fumbling like an idiot in front of her professor, they could have leaned in with her giving "karen" vibes at first. This story line could have been finessed much better. Then you can show her character development by having her learn what allyship really means... this would have come across better. Instead, the series is trying to throw every possible social issue at us all at once. Gender Identity, gender pronouns, ageism, health concerns, podcasting, diversity, inclusion, etc... it was all at once. I feel like they are bullying the audience all at once instead of finessing the storylines... I think the one they they did that I liked was when they killed of BIG, they ensure he still had a little douchbaggery about hm which is more on brand. He became more tolerable but at least he left with questions... Sigh... so much to say but I will leave it here.

Carrie still acts like a spoiled brat, but that has been her character all along, imo. Charlotte is basically the same. Miranda, though, has always been my favorite character to watch grow. She became a very likeable, believable character. The writers of SATC 2 made her character goofy. And her character now just isn't "Miranda" 😢 Samantha's antics were a HUGE asset throughout the whole series and movies. She's the only one that stayed true to her self. And last but not least, Big😭. I really liked him. He's really been consistent in his character as well. Seeing him die like that was awful😰

So glad I found your channel! I recently started getting into satc, and this reboot is a complete mess! What angered me the most about this episode is how entitled Carrie feels regarding Natasha’s time. Natasha doesn’t owe anything to Carrie. Miranda and Charlotte were immaturely supporting Carrie’s stocker behavior. Natasha dealt with all this with so much class, which was the only redeeming factor of all of this.

Another great synopsis and analysis! I agree that the "comedy" show felt more like a pep rally and frankly I'm not sure why Netflix would agree to have their name mentioned as it suggests that they'll let anyone have a comedy special even if that person has the comedic acumen of a moldy loaf of bread. If that were a real Netflix special she'd be lucky to get more than a couple hundred streams and there's no way it gets repeat viewings. Lately my girlfriend and I have been rewatching the original show and oh man does it show just how far this new show has strayed from what made it great. As you mentioned, a lot of the scenes feel oddly pace and placed and without Carrie's narration it doesn't have that same feeling of progression. There's just no flow to the show. Truth is I'm not sure I wanna stay on this train as I'm having a much better time with the original.

Totally agree with everything you have said, the wokeness is absolutely unnecessary and forced is a great word, you can get older but you don't need to become a completely different person. The death of Mr. Big ruined the whole thing for me, after all the years of will they or won't they and then they get the mostly happily ever after he's dead. Such a flop and without Samantha the real sense of what made the show so great is gone.

I knew they would forcefeed the whole woke sandwich down our throats like we are all children who need a lesson. Again I have not seen it but I get a pretty good idea from your recaps. I get it, change is good but they have ruined a good thing. Some may not agree but some of this reminds me of the acting in the second movie. A lot of manic behavior. I loved the original show and never missed it. I think the so called writers on this show missed a great oppty to create a great reboot. You know what sums up the whole thing for me? That Che character. Nothing to with who he/she is or beliefs or anything, it's just so forced and pushed it makes you feel like cringing. Seems like after every show we are all supposed to feel educated and woke. What happen to just entertainment and fun. Is it not allowed anymore? Just my 2 cents but again thank you for the videos.

My youngest, who is transgender, watched this with me and said THIS is part of the reason there is so much confusion and hatred toward the trans community. You don't wake up one day and think "Today I want to be a boy"..Poof! Change.. The next day "Today I want to be bi" ...Poof! Change! I was ready to turn it off when Miranda had her first class.

Having watched some of Nixon's political campaign, I had every expectation that she'd push woke in the reboot. It was obvious producers would need to rework the premise of the original series and woke would be the obvious new direction. These women led trivial self-indulgent lives in their middle age. It can be no surprise they reap such a meager harvest as they approach their golden years. Carrie never knew her husband if she's this shook over how he spent his money. I am glad Cattrall and Noth had the sense to stay clear of this. Big was alpha and there's no room for alpha males in this kind of show.

"55 is not that old" this is true for the majority of people but not for all. People age differently, I'm in my thirties but I've had relatives who couldn't walk at 50.

I almost didn't watch this series due to some of the warranted reviews. I did watch it our of morbid curiosity and was pleasantly surprised that I actually laughed out loud on a few occasions. Stanford's and Anthony's relationship is a scream. I like how they tied up Natasha's story and there was some closure. Samantha's flowers at the funeral was genius and well done. I agree the clothes are deplorable and the person who insisted on those atrocities should be beaten with an ugly stick. Did Charlotte call Seinfield and ask for all his puffy shirts? SJP's obsession with having that "good girl" persona is bleeding over with all the gut wrenching woke dialogue. The lesbian pod cast character is absolutely sickening. I don't tolerate men who come on so inappropriate and strong, so I don't think it's appropriate in a pronouned person either. It's just nasty no matter what pronoun a person is. The character of Steve at this point is like an annoying skin tag. My take away is that some of the spark remains, but lose ALL the diverse friendship lines, send Steve to an old farts's school where they can disable his climax killing baby talk, send Brady to permanently live as a monk on a hilltop somewhere, get new writers and costume designer.

I was a die hard SATC fan back when the show was on the air. As someone who lost her husband last year watching the first episode was beyond upsetting(I found my husband’s body) that I had to shut the show off. Thinking there was a possibility it would turn around I put the show back on and watched both episode 1 and 2. The reality of finding someone who died and the nightmare of making the arrangements and going to the funeral are so far removed from how it was portrayed on the show. I was so outraged by the way the show handled Big’s death that I refuse to continue watching the program. The point I would like to make is this.. we watched SATC as a form of entertainment, a fantasy of clothes and shoes most average working women can’t afford and story lines that were fun, funny and exciting to watch. The writers are so off target with this one. No wants to watch SATC as a reality show and if you are going to put it out as a reality show then check your facts and come down to what reality is.. don’t do it half way. I refuse to watch the show again to see Carrie running around NY playing at Merry Widow in an outfit that costs more than a normal persons wages for a month with a Cosmo in one hand and bemoaning her extremely privileged life.

Those three were never exceptional actresses, just average, in my opinion. Back in the original series Samantha was the only character I found believable and Kim Catrall disappeared from my mind when I was watching the show, but for the other three I was always aware that there were three actresses playing a part. Overall I didn't have high expectations for the revival but OMG this is a snoozefest of forced politically correctness education. And about the age thing, I have the same feeling I had when I was watching SATC, the writers develop characters full of cliches. Hell, if you watch the "Golden Girls" you'll be astonished by the levels of energy, especially by 80-something Sophia Petrillo, and may I add, Dorothy Zbornack discovered she had a hearing loss in one episode and that didn't stop her from being as active as a 20 year old!

I was fearing that the writers were going to tarnish his legacy to make it more reasonable for them to throw Carrie back into the dating pool. Although I feel it's going down that path anyways. They keep focusing on thst gray haired producer who laughs at everything Carrie says during the podcast. I may be wrong but that's my prediction of what they might do...

What can be more horrible than a serial philanderer cheating on his much younger wife? Oh right, they already did that storyline. And Big was faithful to Carrie? Puh lease 🙄

I would love to see characters of strong, successful women, who have reached an age where they have succeeded in their work, together with their families and never lost their femininity and gained more self-esteem. I would like to see women who have reached that age and accept themselves as they are, love themselves and that their peers also grew up with them. I would like it not to be encouraged to use drugs and speak in a grotesque way.

The fashion for this show really became muted. Partially it's because they changed the costume designer, but a huge part of it is because they're trying to be financially conscious when presenting themselves. The luxury lifestyle and ostentatious wealth portrayed in the original sex and the city was an ode to its time. Flaunting money and wealth like that during covid, a time where unemployment is at an all-time-high and celebrity-worship is at an all-time-low, is going to be received poorly. So, they chose a bunch of clothes that look like they've been plucked from vintage thrift stores. They still name-drop a brand here and there, and Carrie isn't Carrie without her closet, but they toned it way down for the show this time around.

@Alberto Cesar But they appear to be financially feasible, which is a very "old money" thing to do. They don't look like they cost much, but they do.

I followed an Instagram detailing all the clothes they are wearing. they are outrageously expensively dressed in top designer clothing even if they don’t look like it. Nothing financially conscious abt it.
