…who doesn’t care at all about the upcoming Sex and the City movie?
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!)
No, I don’t give two hoots either – in fact the more I hear the less inspired to pay it any attention. My usual cinema companions are my son (who likes cars and gadgets in his films) and my girlfriend (who likes Zombies and Shane Meadows) so I don’t think I’ll be off to see it somehow.
Having said that, I’ve a morbid fascination for the fun the tabloids have had comparing the actress’s real life faces and their airbrushed promo material ones!
How is Gossip Girl almost realistic and Sex and the City not? They’re about the same in the realism stakes. Plus it’s really annoying when people are all, “Oh, am I the only one not to care about (insert popular cultural phenomenon here)” and trying to position themselves in an anti-popular too-individual-to-follow-the-masses sort of thing. No, you’re not the only one. You’re in good company with all the anti-populists.
hahaha. i know how unrealistic it is. i think i watch it more for the fashion statements and for samantha’s sarcasm than anything else. i know what you mean about carrie… there are parts of me that feel like i can relate to her, but the moment i think that, she does something that is so bloody irritating, i tell myself,”don’t you ever dare do that.” ha
