574. sex in the city

at the risk of losing 90% of my eight readers, i just don't get sex in the city.
i've had opportunity to listen in on women in conversation, and i have to say, they don't talk in that sex in the city way.
they might say the same things, but not with the same emptiness.

(may the bloodletting begin)

No bloodletting from me bob.

I never really watched the show, mainly because I don’t have HBO at home but I did watch a couple episodes while traveling (hotels always have HBO). Sex and the City may have been a great study of female friendship but like Miranda pointed out in one episode I did watch, “How does it happen that four such smart women have nothing to talk about but boyfriends?”

I’m not saying it wasn’t a good show since it dealt with many important topics like infertility, bereavement, ageing, single motherhood, sexual discrimination and divorce, to name a few. And the way they spoke, and the things they talked about, were (supposedly) very revolutionary


If I had been a loyal fan of the show, I think I would have been disappointed at the end. Why did they (and most all of the other networks) always have to go back to the “traditional view” that the future for (most) women means marriage and children?

That’s my two-cents anyway.
