Characters[Edit]Edit

Carrie is author of the weekly column ' Sex and the City ' in the New York Star, in which she topics around sex and dating on Manhattan treats based on events in her life and that of her friends. In the first episode already met Carrie John James Preston or "Mr. Big" (played by Chris Noth), the great love of her life. However, he has binding anxiety and is selfish: they go after a year apart (end season 1). In subsequent seasons they have a flasher relationship, while Carrie has relationships with furniture designer Aidan Shaw (played by John Corbett), writer Jack Berger (Ron Livingston) and artist Aleksandr Petrovsky (Mikhail Baryshnikov). Carrie and Big decide to marry, but on the day of the wedding sees Big there from. They Later marry. They want no children.
Carries large weaknesses are smoking and shopping, especially shoes. This series has by the frequent mention of this shoe designer Manolo Blahnik made wildly popular.
Miranda is a successful lawyer, but slightly neurotic. Characterized by its pessimism and cynicism they usually goes through life as a Bachelor. Her most important relationship is that with bartender Steve Brady (played by David Eigenberg), she met in season 2. She gets a son of him, which gives them as Steve's last name first name, but with her last name, so Brady Hobbes. She is first single mother, but marries later with Steve.
Charlotte, who works in an art gallery, is the best of the four. She has classical views on sex, relationships and marriage (to put it in Carries words to say: Charlotte sees marriage as a club where they desperately in want to hear). They married in season 3 with doctor Trey (Kyle MacLachlan), McDougall but this has been running pretty fast on the rocks and she is eventually fell in love with her divorce lawyer, the Jewish Harry Goldenblatt (Evan Handler). They get married, adopt the Chinese girl Lily and get themselves a daughter, Rose.
Samantha, a successful businesswoman with a private pr company, choose above all for freedom. She is crazy about men and sex, a real femme fatale. She is in own words a "try-sexual", she wants to try everything. Her most meaningful relationships in the series are those with hotel magnate Richard Wright (James Remar) and the younger actor Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis /model).

The series[Edit]Edit

' Sex and the City ' is based on the novel of the same name by writer Candace Bushnell, who acquired international fame.

All of the first season on it was ' Sex and the City ' a hit. The glorified sex and dating on Manhattan and, according to some, was an important step in the emancipation. The series gave a light-hearted look at life as a hip thirtysomething with a career and good girlfriends as the basis for their luck. The series gave women a clear message around the world that all possible views on sex and relationships are possible today. The series took out many topics around sex from the Dim world of tabootriossoaonenightstandsoral sexbisexuality and dildos are all topics that are discussed. The idea was spread that everything is possible, as long as you like. There is also criticism of the series: some find it correct not liberating for the woman. So the female characters superficial types, prejudices and thereby confirm the message that women do not need to be taken seriously.

Also in the field of fashion is the series become a cult phenomenon: shopping is one of the favorite pastimes of these women and there is also attached great importance to fashion and their outfits. Charlotte has a somewhat conservative appearance, Miranda a sober, understated style that suits her career. Samantha on the other hand, opt for suits and dresses in bright colors that accentuate her body and Carrie has an eclectic style, with it mostly revolves around her shoes, almost always stilettos and preferably Manolo Blahnik or Jimmy Choo. It runs mainly to the 21st-century fashion, and the countless trends. Patricia Field was the Stylist of the series.
