Anyway, it got my thinking, why hasn’t a new show come to fill the empty Manolo Blahniks’ Sex and the City so gloriously filled? Don’t get me wrong, the movies was OK, but where are us girls supposed to go for our weekly drama aimed solely at us? These days the kinds of shows that appeal to me and my friends are either aimed at the family (i.e. Lost, Heroes, Dexter) or try and appeal to the teens by being largely about teenagers having sex (Skins, Inbetweeners).
Quite simply, I could just carry on re-watching any one of the six seasons Sarah Jessica Parker & co ever so kindly made for us. But instead, I’ve decided to take a look back to Carrie’s signature “I couldn’t help but wonder…” questions and see whether they relevant to twenty-somethings (a.k.a. people my age) in the Noughties.
#1 Is it better to “fake it” than be alone? (Season Two, Episode Four)
#2 Why do we let the one thing we don’t have affect all the things we do have? Why does one minus a plus one feel like it adds up to a zero? (Season Five, Episode Five)
#3 Why are we should-ing all over ourselves?(Season Six, Episode 15(
#4 As we speed along this endless road to the destination called “Who-We-Hope-to-Be,” I can’t help but whine, are we there yet? (Season Four, Episode 11)
#5 Can you make a mistake and miss your fate? (Season Four, Episode 18)
More to come as I think of answers to these timelessly relevant questions!
