Now you can achieve multiple viewings of the best Sex on TV. Winner of Golden Globes for Best TV Series and Best Actress, Sex and the City is based on Candace Bushnell's provocative bestselling book. Sarah Jessica Parker stars as Carrie Bradshaw, a self-described "sexual anthropologist," who writes "Sex and the City," a newspaper column that chronicles the state of sexual affairs of Manhattanites in this "age of un-innocence." Her "posse," including nice girl Charlotte (Kristin Davis), hard-edged Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and party girl Samantha (Kim Cattrall)--not to mention her own tumultuous love life--gives Carrie plenty of column fodder. Over the course of the first season's 12 episodes, the most prominent dramatic arc concerns Carrie, who goes from turning the tables on "toxic bachelors" by having "sex like a man" to wanting to join the ranks of "the monogamists" with the elusive Mr. Big (Chris Noth). Meanwhile, Miranda, Cynthia, and Samantha have their own dating woes, few of which can be described on a family Web site. Seinfeld has nothing on Sex and the City when it comes to shallow, self-absorbed characters or coining catch phrases. Episode 2, for example, introduces the term "modelizer": a guy who is obsessed with and will only date models. Some may accuse this series of male bashing. But women, after years of enduring shows with "men behaving badly," will relish the equal time. Some may blanch at the ladies' graphic language and ribald humor, or dismiss some of the situations as unrealistic (Carrie doesn't bat an eye when she discovers that an artist friend surreptitiously videotapes his sexual conquests). Still others will view Sex and the City as documentary. Regardless of your view, this groundbreaking series will have you longing for more. --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and fabulous June 27 2004
By Betsy
Format:DVD
I got into this series when it was almost over and can recommend it. Yes, it's explicit at times so beware of that, but it's fresh and fun and most importantly absolutely fabulous. The characters are all played wonderfully by this cast and the stories have you chatting later about it with your friends saying things like "GEEZ, I'd never put up with that" etc. Depending on your favorite character as a woman it's easy to find yourself in one of the cast.
LOVE THIS SERIES!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Format Jan. 27 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I originally bought the series on DVD around 2005ish. The original DVD cases were flimsy plastic and broke easily. The DVD's also do not have a "play all function". One of my Season 1 discs stopped working so I bought this. The menus are better, the case is more sturdy, and there is a "play all" option. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sex and the city fan for life March 25 2004
Format:DVD
I just love this show. I saw part of season 1, so it was fun to be able to get the DVD and watch the whole season. It took me two days, but it was worth it. My favorite episode is the one where Carrie farts in front of big. I kept rewinding that scene because it was so funny. The show was well cast. Samantha gave new meaning to sexual liberation. If you never saw the show, go on and treat yourself to the DVD. You will find yourself watching the show every now and again with your girlfriends.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Man Like Sex and the City March 13 2004
By Jamie
Format:DVD
Sex and the City rules from a male perspective. I started watching Sex and the City with my mother when it first aired and have not be disappointed by the show. This review is based on the whole six series of SATC. All the main characters are honest, funny, and shares a similar desire. Carrie's character is a sex columnist for a newspaper. Carrie uses her own personal experiences as well as her girlfriends experiences to compose a column about men, women, sex, and relationships. Samantha is extremely sexually active women who works in Public Relations. Miranda is smart, self assured lawyer who is cynical which leaving her to fake her emotions about relationships. Charlotte is prim and proper Park Avenue women who goals are to get married and have a family.
The reason why I like SATC is because it give a comedic version on sex and relationships. No matter what happens to your own social life, you can watch SATC and share the same humorous episode of what Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte did, and learn to laugh a upon at your own situations. These six series will be treasured and revisited by me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Highly Toxic and Habit-forming March 16 2003
Format:VHS Tape
...Why do I watch it? Because there's enough fun, fact, and female reality check to hook me. I have a shoe addiction, too, but I'm still trying to figure out how someone who writes a column for a newspaper can afford designer shoes, fabulous outfits, and salon hair and still pay rent in Manhattan. Those are just a few of the fairy tales of the show. A post-feminist, post-modern fairy tale is exactly what SATC is.
...If these women honestly want a man to have a real relationship with, why do they find glaring defects in the available men they meet? Either he's too young...or he doesn't make enough money or he doesn't like the right china pattern...it's Seinfeld! A more upscale, glittery crew than Seinfeld, but it's the same emotionally unavailable, incapable of having a relationship crew as the one on Seinfeld. The women on SATC complain about modelizers, womanizers, and every other variety of -izers, but they're just as obsessed with ideas of male perfection. It doesn't matter if the guy is sweet, kind, genuine, or otherwise acceptable. If they can find one thing wrong with him, he gets discarded. They're as shallow as the men they complain about.
What are the chances that 4 women in NYC have their level of education and income, but not one of them is involved in a personal growth program? How is it that no one is in therapy or a 12-step program? God knows they need it-Carrie drinks like a fish and Samantha is a total sex addict. Even if 12-step is passé, therapy is de rigueur for Manhattanites. Not one of these chicks even reads self-help books.
I'd like to see the post-September 11th season of the show. I can only hope that a huge event like that would inject some depth (and values) into the lives of The Fad Four.

4.0 out of 5 stars good to see how it all began Aug. 9 2002
By momazon
Format:DVD
Because I don't have cable, I have had to rely on friends' opinions and watching the occasional episode. So when I received this video, I was surprised at how enteraining it was when you know about the show from the beginning. Carrie and the girls have careers but aren't rolling in wealth -- they have to be fabulous on a budget, so people can actually relate.
(Ignore the fact that the actresses playing quintessential single gals are married and pregnant. It's entertainment, not the gospel. Make your own decisions, just enjoy the show!)
