Not watched since going through all the seasons with the TV in 2007/2008 so no idea how well it will have aged but really enjoyed it at the time. Obviously has some lulls like most shows of that length but felt pretty invested in most of the characters and relationships. 4 for me.

Never really watched it. My ol housenate was obsessed with it though. ?/5

I’m going to sya it right now - this is easily one of the most “of its time” shows there is. We have reality shows talking about sex in the way Sex in the City did, and there was nothing like on telly.

It isn’t shit, in the end, but tainted by terrible Flanderisation of the characters and those dreadful capitalism-as-religion movies, but it was in those first seasons trailblazing.

A 3 if there ever was one.

tbh I’m just gonna mute the thread cause I’m not interested in what a group of mostly straight cis men think

don’t, I think there’s a good chance that those who aren’t cis and white and male will be able to have a good discussion about it.

Really enjoy[ed] watching it with my partner, however a lot of the jokes are very uncomfortable (lots of homophobia. Carrie is horrible)

I’m a Miranda

My then girlfriend wrote her uni thesis on sex and the city, sex, fashion, and the interplay of that, and it was an awesome experience seeing her battle her lecturers about the merits of it. Absolutely brilliant.

Watched it through a couple of years ago with my wife. Thought it was alright, I’m very aware that it’s not intended for me so I’ve voted and will just spectate on this one.

No shade, but what about it is not intended for you?
