I always recall this debut season of SEX AND THE CITY as bad hair, cheap clothes, and a lot of introduction. It's the weakest season, in my opinion, but necessary to enter into this lipstick jungle. Carrie Bradshaw establishes herself as the conduit between the audience and the single women in New York. As a sex columnist, she's more than qualified. She navigates the city with an eye for all things love, sex, and relationships, developing an angle and drawing conclusions. However, she often finds herself more confused by the idiosyncrasies of people and the quirks of the city that never sleeps but often sleeps around. Meanwhile, Carrie has a trio of friends: sexpot PR exec Samantha Jones, naive romantic art dealer Charlotte York, and cynical lawyer Miranda Hobbes. Samantha blazes her own trail by having emotionless sexual escapades devoid of all romance and commitment; in a handful of episodes, she manages to sleep with a real estate agent, a chef, a publisher, a doorman, a married wine importer, and an artist who exclusively dates models. Miranda starts off the series hating men; they're all unappreciative to her and thus they should all die. She’s angry and outspoken about it. No wonder the men at her firm think she's gay. Still, she finds herself a nice guy whose kindness annoys her at first until she finally succumbs to his charms, only mildly irritated by his disposition. Charlotte travels a different path, a more chaste one comparatively. She plays by an unwritten set of rules to find the love of her life and marry him. She really is too good for the city she is in, getting snubbed by promiscuous womanizers and snubbing those who don't share her taste in china patterns. Together, the quartet set the city on fire with their wit and their smiles. It's fun and funny to behold and, while weaker than the later seasons, it serves as admission to one of the most iconic series in the last twenty years. I recommend it.
