Product Description

Product Description

It's summertime, but that doesn't mean the women of Sex and the City are livin' easy. They've got new loves, new responsibilities, new choices to make, and (oh, yes!) a new baby to deal with - and that equates to a whole new outlook on being single in New York City. Ready or not, Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha are headed for uncharted territory on an all-new season of HBO's smash-hit comedy series Sex and the City!

(c) 2003 Home Box Office. All rights reserved. HBO(r) and Sex And The City(r) are service marks of Home Box Office, Inc.

It was a short but sweet fifth season for Sex and the City, as HBO's resident comediennes found themselves affected by forces beyond their control--the pregnancies of both Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie) and Cynthia Nixon (Miranda). A truncated shooting schedule to accommodate the actresses forced this season to be reduced to a mere eight episodes, and indeed, you can tell both actresses are expecting. (Carrie's wardrobe became more outlandish and more concealing than usual.) Still, the actresses and creators forged ahead, creating a handful of episodes that if short in content were long on emotion and laughs. Whereas the fourth season found all four grappling with various relationships, the fifth season focused on the perils of being single, with a new intensity lacking in the previous sexcapades. Carrie and Miranda wrestled with their solitary lifestyles, albeit with new attachments--Miranda had new baby Brady and single motherhood, while Carrie found herself in the world of publishing as the author of a real-life book of her columns. Charlotte (Kristin Davis) wondered if she'd ever find another man, while Samantha (Kim Cattrall) finally got rid of the one that had been vexing her far too much, hotelier Richard (James Remar). If the season as a whole felt less than the sum of its parts, those parts were some of the best comedy in the show's history, from Samantha's anointment as the "Michiko Kakutani of vibrators" to Carrie's stressful, one-degree-from-fiasco book launch party. (And fear not, Chris Noth's Mr. Big does pop up now and again.) The season's climactic episode, "I Love a Charade," found all four at the straight wedding of a seemingly gay pal (Nathan Lane) and contemplating their future with a wry, bemused tone. It was one of the series' best episodes ever, equally touching and funny, and grounded the show in an emotional maturity that announced that after all their wild travails, these women had truly grown up. --Mark Englehart

As a devotee of Sex and the City, I never wanted to admit that anything was wrong with the show... until I saw Season 5. A lot of people will say that Season 5 is what's wrong with SATC, but I say that Season 5 is what's RIGHT about the show! Season 5 is the most realistic of all six seasons. Playfully dubbed "the season without men" by the show's writers, there are very few long-term (or short-term, for that matter) relationships for the women in this season. Until Season 5, the women of SATC have gone through a seemingly endless string of semi-serious to serious relationships without any real examination of what and who the women are without men. This season forces all of the women to show their true colors without men. Even Samantha's antics are toned down and used more to expose who she is rather than what she does.
Many fans complained that Season 5 wasn't funny enough. Not enough men, not enough sex. Real single women know that Season 5 was the closest of all the seasons to what all of us experience in our daily lives - loneliness, good friends, occasional romantic connections, and a lot of "in between". Season 5 isn't "filler" or a poor season - its real life. Fans of the show who don't enjoy this season are, perhaps, happy to forget about their own lives while following those of Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha. I prefer to think of the women of SATC as myself and my friends - and Season 5 proves that they are.

Sex and the City, one of TV's best comedy series, faced quite a few challenges in its fifth season. To maintain its freshness during such a successful run is daunting enough. On top of that, the crew, specifically the directors and costume designers, had to pull quite a few tricks to disguise Sarah Jessica Parker's pregnancy (and did so successfully, might I add.) But the biggest challenge was to keep the show lifted out of the shadow of 9/11 which coincidentally occurred between the airing of the two seasons. That's why it breaks my heart to rate the fifth season of Sex and the City with 3 stars.
The themes running through the episodes in this season weren't nearly as engaging as in past seasons. The only thing that comes to mind about Season 5 is Miranda adapting to life as a mother. Most of the other stuff is just a blur.
"Critical Condition" is THE best show of the 5th season where Carrie questions,"when it comes to life and love, why do we believe our worst reviews?" This is also the episode where Samantha decides to play "Mary f**kin' Poppins" by babysitting for Miranda. Check out how creative Sam gets when Brady's vibrating chair gives out.
Unfortunately, the other 7 (yes, SEVEN) episodes aren't good enough for me to recommend the purchase of the fifth season set unless you're a rabid completist who collects all things SATC. Furthermore, as other reviewers have pointed out, the price can't be justified. With only 8 episodes in this set, why is it the same price as the other sets that contain more shows.
However, DO be on the lookout for the outstanding Season 6.

I have seen every episode from the beginning, and like a lot of you agree (...) is too much for only 8 episodes. But what I am also seeing is a complaint of the 8 shows. I have to disagree...SITC is not only a comedy, but a chance to get to know the girls. This season we actually saw Samantha fall in love. Maybe eveyone is upset b/c it was not funny...I don't always tend to watch them b/c they are funny, but to see what's up. There have been several episodes that I was sad and cried (Miranda's mom dying). Some of you have mentioned how ridiculous it is for 40 something women to go after these 20 something sailors (episode 1). That was the point!!! I felt sad for them and they knew they were sad for doing it! I felt like this was a completely true to life season, and maybe you people have a problem with it b/c the reality was too much. I liked this season and once the price comes down will definately add it to my collection and watch it when I need a good cry, since sometimes that is just as important as a good laugh!

Before writing my review, I read many of the already written reviews (mostly negative I might add) and I watched all 8 episodes of Season 5. Relax...if you are a die hard Sex and the City fan, stop obsessing over the price. As for Season 5, I think it was better than worse. Could it have been better...sure; but it could've been a lot worse. So the girls weren't "men-obsessed" like the usual seasons. This season allowed the girls to look deep into their "single-selves." Being single and all alone sucks, and this season showed that. Everyone gets lonely, so it was inevitable that our favorite and fabulous girls were bound to feel the brunt of our pain. In this season we seem to get deeper into the character lives. We find out what fuels their passion, love, and's just a matter of whether or not their tank is full! The only problem I had with this season was Carrie's clothes. I know she was prego and all, but come on! Her fashion sense is what drives this show. This season consisted of too many long and short tunic like frocks! Sure they were designers like Juicy...but a designer frock is still a frock! HBO could've at least beefed up her accessories with infamous purses or shoes! As for the rest...Carrie hearts NY and I heart Sex and the City!
