This show is often called Sex in the City. However, people may be confusing Sex and the City with another similarly titled show Caroline in the City. Both shows feature female lead characters. Both shows aired in the 90s, though Caroline in the City ended in 1999. See more »
In the earlier series, the exterior the Carrie's apartment was another apartment block (in one episode we see a couple having sex through this windows). In later series, the exterior changes to the street outside and the other apartment seems to have moved. See more »
I revealed too much too soon. I was emotionally slutty.

From episodes 61 ("The Good Fight") and beyond, the credits were altered after the 9/11 attacks. New footage is now present, durning the title and Sarah Jessica Parker's name, that originally featured shots of the Twin Towers. See more »
One can easily identify with the characters on this show -- if one is young, attractive, and affluent or rising (with money to feed a cutting-edge fashion sense). One can also identify with the characters if one is supposed to be intelligent and capable yet is really vapid and narrow-minded. The stars' ages range roughly around my own, late-thirties and mid-forties, but their mentality is barely past puberty. These are prosperous career women who talk like junior high schoolers. It's as if they never had a deep thought in their lives. They seem intelligent enough to grasp Dostoevsky, and it would do them good -- but they'd probably think that meant something sexual since, as the title implies, they think of nothing else.
That such shallow characters, with no more depth than an ad in Cosmopolitan, can exist for an hour a week on television is not suprizing. What is frightening is that some people actually think human beings can live like this, and may even want to emulate them. I don't know anyone like the characters in this show, thank God, and I hope I never meet any. I will reside in the country where people read and think, are reflective, introspective, and muse on eternal verities. Shows like this, which present people who are supposed to be intelligent and witty and urbane but who in fact are sadly vacuous, encourage one to keep the television off and live a real life.
