Sarah Jessica Parker
Contrary to popular belief, this show is not just about women acting like men and fucking anything that moves. Actually all four ladies are intelligent, successful modern women who have fairly active imaginations and a hunger for some flesh every now and again. That in itself isn't what makes the show exciting or even original, rather it’s the sharp, thoughtful and (dare I say) witty dialogue, scenarios and characters that make SEX AND THE CITY feel so damn fresh and addictive season to season.
Season 5 consists of only 8 episodes, the lowest of any season so far. The running storylines from the season include Carrie getting a book deal, Miranda dealing with her new tot, Samantha still going back & forth with Richard (the great James Remar) and Charlotte trying to ease her way back into the “game” following her disastrous first marriage. The inclusion of Ron Livingston as one of Carrie’s possible love interests was a stroke of genius as he’s not only a funny, likeable and charming actor, but he was lucky enough to be a part of two of the best comedies from the late nineties: OFFICE SPACE and SWINGERS. My only problem is that this is too short a season. Still, the quality of writing is the same and the funny moments, dramatic touches and clever commentaries on dating and sex remain just as novel as they were back when the show began in 1998.
Interactive Trivia Game: A fun little multiple choice game that tests your knowledge from the 8 episodes from season 5. It’s criminally easy though.
Behind The Scenes With Costume Designer Patricia Field (approx. 21 min.): Just what the title says. Patty takes you from the A’s to the Z’s of everything you wanted to know about designing for this show. I’m a heterosexual who isn’t that big into fashion, so this didn’t interest me too much but you gals might like it and it might also provide some enjoyment for some men who enjoy the company of other men. Who knows?
