My Irish friend Sarah has a short treatise on the conclusion of Sex in the City. I’ve always had mixed feelings about this show. On the one hand it’s extremely witty and well-acted (despite the Doogie Howser device), but on the other hand it seemed to render most of the men on the show as incomplete, deeply-flawed or otherwise gobshites.
Sarah reaches an interesting conclusion about the show’s themes:
Between Samantha’s breast cancer, Charlotte’s infertility and Miranda’s obvious happiness in her imperfect husband and move to shock-horror Brooklyn, there is no doubting the core message: SETTLE, FOR ANYONE, QUICK!
