Why Do I Still Enjoy Watching the Show, Sex and The City

Ever since the “Sex and the City” TV show was released, it has been one of my favorite shows. I’ve watched it so many times, but I never get tired of it!

I like it not only because it’s about people finding love in a big city.  I enjoy watching the “Sex and the City” show because it’s about four close friends (Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha), each with a unique personality, who care about each other dearly, and help each other go through ups and downs in their lives.

In my opinion, the bond of the four main characters’ friendship in the “Sex and the City” show actually outweighs the handsome lovers they have throughout the six seasons. In the “Sex and the City” Season 4, Episode 1-“The Agony and the Extasy”, Charlotte believes that there’s “one perfect soul mate” for each person while the other girls thought there’s no such thing as “one perfect soul mate”.

Whether there’s “one perfect soul mate” for each person or not, towards the end of the episode, all four of them are sitting in the coffee shop. Carrie was depressed and felt sad about being alone without a guy on her 35th birthday. Charlotte suggested the sweetest idea that all four of them can be each other’s soul mate instead waiting for the perfect guy to be the so call “soul mate”.


In the end of “The Agony and the Ecstasy” episode, as Carrie walks home from the meeting with the girls in the coffee shop, she saw Mr. Big (who had returned to New Year from London) waiting to give her red balloons and celebrate her birthday with a bottle of champagne. It was a friendly gesture, but it really added a nice touch to the episode. I guess sometimes a girl can have soul mates and a lover, too. Why settle for just one of them, right!


Another big reason I enjoy watching the ‘Sex and the City” show is its fashion component. The show wouldn’t be quite as fabulous without the die-for handbags, the fabulous stilettos, and gorgeous dresses. Although I can’t help wonder how a writer (Carrie) can afford all the luxury accessories in a big city. But as long as everything look good in the show, why does it matter if it resembles the reality, right?
