    "Sex in the City?" I've heard about this show for a few years, and if you watch TV, you can't help but hear about the stars and all that. But, was/is the show any good? Are you guys going to miss it? Or is it more hype than anything else?

    Personally, I can't wait 'till it's over with, because then I won't hear about it any more, I hope.

    I've seen it.
    But not much interested in watching middle aged women slut it up.
  3. I've seen it once, and I just thought it was a softcore porno with more plot than pud.

    Not bad though.

    Kaz :rolleyes: :smug:
  4. I watched it a few times, it was just a show, didn't seem any different than a reoccuring movie that barely got an R rating. I like Six Feet Under and The Sopranos better.

    My wife watches Six Feet Under, best soap opera I've ever seen. I've never seen the Sopranos.

    No story, completely uninteresting (and totally hysterical) characters, no humour (or at least a kind I don't understand). It has nothing that makes me want to watch. If I want softcore porn, I watch softcore porn.
  7. One of my favorite shows, I don't see how you guys don't think its funny, I find it to be one of the funniest shows I've ever seen.

    i really dislike those shows.

    i dislike the new gay soap operas even more, they seem so unoriginal as original as they seem to think they are.

    last week it was my birthday and i had a birhday dinner gathering of a small handful of close friends. i have a lot of lesbian friends for some reason (maybe because I used to hang out in the lesbian capital of the US, Park Slope Bkly.), but anyhow one of these friends invited a few of us back to her house to play board games after we ate. she warned that her roomate had some people over watching this new show and we'd have to be quiet till it was over. jeeeeez! it was like a religious experience for these guys. there were about 10 women there, and they were not happy we were walking in during their show. i hid with my friend in her bedroom till it was over. there was something terribly nauseating about the expereince, and it had nothing to do with the gay thing. just what they seemed to have invested in that show. "ohhh, she should have never done that!", "if I were her I would have...", "blah, blah, blah...". I don't know. maybe i'm being a tad judgemental. if it were a show about bass players perhaps my living room would be full of even worse sounding people.

    i remember laughing listening to a coversation at a talkbass gathering once. "hey man, are those barts you've got on there? sweeeet!" -i don't know, i think that's funny.

    I liked it. Especially Miranda's character, and Charlottes looks.

    Carrie may have been the 'star' character, but I never thought she was well written. And Samantha was a cartoon. Miranda was believable. Charlotte was a different kind of cartoon, sort of the anti-Samantha, but Kristin Davis is so pretty that I didn't mind.
  10. I think SATC is funny as hell. Wife and I also love these HBO shows:

    Six Feet Under
    Curb Your Enthusiasm

    It is going on the TV right now and my Mum is watching it... :rolleyes: I dont like it. But it at least has something that will make the hair stand on any feminist's head: did you ever think that these women were behaving quite like those men the feminists hate that much? :rolleyes: So (these) single women in big towns are just as dirty as any man from the morals point of view, and not those innocent, poor girls exploited by barbaristic men. The difference is that while many men just talk about sex, these can get it much easier - so are men exploited nowadays? :eek: :rolleyes:

    And i dont like soap opares, anyway

    I watched the 1st couple seasons...mainly to catch a glimpse of Cattrall's boobies(they came out every week or so it seemed).
    The last 2 seasons, I have watched sporadically.
    I did watch the last 2 episodes to see what unfolded.

    Like it or hate it, there were some classic lines & scenes.
    Decorum prevents me from repeating any here...though there was Samantha's suggestion to Charlotte about 'How to Tea-Bag' properly(Charlotte, the innocent one, was merely talking about her boyfriend leaving his tea bags on the counter).

    At one time, Carrie was dating(?) a Jazz bassist(the guy sported a porkpie hat).

    Anyway, I guess the show was considered 'edgy' 'cause it was women acting/talking in a coffee shop like men would act/talk in a locker room.
    I was listening to the show's writer last night; she said the show hit a chord with women because it was 'real'.
    I dunno...I have asked many women over these past years if they related to any the characters. All said not only "No"! but "Hell NO!".

    Next up is a movie and syndication on TBS(cleaned-up versions were filmed alongside the R-rated ones).

    My question-
    Would someone put out the DVDs to Dream On?
    Martin Tupper was my hero!

    Maybe I would watch it for the mammary action, but I got rid of my TV a while ago.

    Sex And The City shot its load. I'm glad it's over. I'd watch it with the wife only to kill time before Curb Your Enthusiasm, which is the best comedy on TV. It's like Seinfeld without a net.

    Can't wait for The Sopranos season premiere (March 7th). Local boy Steve Buscemi joins the cast.

    My favorite show right now is CSI. Just because it moves along and has quirky, eccentric characters. In reality I don't think law enforcement has such nice crime labs though.
