Although it seems like something I would actually watch, I’ve never been able to get into it. Maybe its the unlikable characters – I know we’re supposed to love Carrie, but she just seems to be superficial and annoying to me.
When I was working at Crest, I was on a team with three girls who absolutely loved the show and would talk about it in such detail, I feel like I’ve seen all the shows anyway.
If there is nothing else on TV, I end up watching it, but it irritates me for no particular reason.
Another more recent show thats come onto our screens with similar aspects is Gossip Girl
As those around me will know, I bloody well love Gossip Girl. It’s similar to Sex and the City in certain ways – fantastic fashions, based in New York, random plotlines thrown in – but I love it so much more because
its the sort of life that we probably would all love to have, and its almost realistic.
I love the outfits that are seen, the awesome soundtrack, and the bitchyness from the charactors and of course from the narrating Gossip Girl. (Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Gossip Girl is voiced by Kristen Bell, who we love in a non lezzie way)
I also love the Gossip Girl books – yes, they’re trashy and made for 16 year olds, but they’re quick and easy to read when your brain just doesn’t want to look at accounting textbooks anymore.
So will I watch the Sex and the City movie? Pretty unlikely – I’ll be found in front of my VBox watching Dr Who again (I love the catch up ability!)
