TV SHOWS THAT DISAPPOINT TEN YEARS ON
SEX AND THE CITY
I really liked this show in its heyday. It seemed like the first show that took single women seriously. That allowed for them to have sexual desire, to be ambitious, to have community, but still yearn for an eventual husband and family.
Now when I watch it, I just see superficial women who only care about fashion and cute, rich boyfriends. Yes, they share a camaraderie but it's based on discussions of trivial things. When did they ever discuss a book, politics, their families. The show takes place over the year of 2001 and yet it gets very little attention. Very disappointing. Perhaps it was the movie that put it into perspective. Spending two hours with these women was too much.
What show did you watch later and no longer like?
