I know many people still watch this show despite that the show is now only available on syndicated TV. I know many women who like to believe their lives mirror that of the characters on this show. I also know that this show is one of the most ridiculous shows on TV.
I had a friend who spoke of this show the way some people speak of religion… which is to say she was a maniacal cackling fool.
I often wonder why women gravitate toward certain shows just as I am sure some women wonder why men gravitate toward some shows. I guess the difference is that the shows men watch, in my estimation anyway, don’t harm them.
Sex in the City is an unrealistic representation of life. The women are all so flawed as humans, it would be difficult for me to even want to know they existed in real life much less as characters that some real women would like to emulate.
I’m sure some of my female readers, especially those who are fans of this show, will say that I just don’t understand or worse, that these women are empowered. I am not the target demographic (admittedly, I am male, have a brain, self-estem and taste), but that shouldn’t preclude me from commenting on whether or not this show is crap. Ladies… this show is indeed crap.
Addendum: Okay, I should probably have said that I wouldn’t comment on something without having first hand knowledge. I have watched a number of episodes of Sex and the City, scattered across the history of the show. Some the first season, a few the second, one or two the third… etc. In other words, enough to know that Sex and the City is crap. I feel unclean knowing that I’ve wasted a few hours of my life being bludgeoned by this affront to the medium.
