Creator: Darren Star
I had seen maybe a half-dozen episodes of the show before I met my wife and I thought it was pretty funny. Now I’ve seen every episode, most of them at least five times.
There are several memorable scenes that make me laugh every time. Miranda is a strong character I enjoy watching, and Samantha is usually good for a laugh per episode. The final season arc where Carrie is dating the Russian artist is solid, especially due to Mikhail Baryshnikov’s performance. But Carrie is constantly obnoxious, and since she’s the main characters who narrates the hell out of everything it gets hard to love the show. Her draw to Mr. Big is irritating, and while Chris Noth is fine, he’s not so good that he needs to show up as often as he does.
I haven’t seen many of the episodes uncensored. Of the ones I have, they’re somewhat improved due to more colorful language, though the sex scenes aren’t very sexy.
