From Amazon.co.uk

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 and Cynthia Nixon. A truncated shooting schedule to accommodate the actresses forced this season to be reduced to a mere eight episodes, but they and the writers forged ahead, creating a handful of episodes that if short in content were long on emotion and laughs. 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 wondered if she'd ever find another man, while Samantha finally got rid of the one that had been vexing her far too much. 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. The season's climactic episode, "I Love a Charade", 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

Product Description

Contains all the episodes from Series Five:

  • Episode 67: ‘Anchors Away’
    Miranda's new arrival baby Brady reminds Carrie, Samantha and newly single Charlotte that they aren't getting any younger. The girls wonder whether they should keep waiting for 'the one' or settle for just someone.
  • Episode 68 & 69: ‘Unoriginal Sin’ & 'Luck Be An Old Lady'
    While Miranda debates the merits of baptism with Steve, Carrie lands a book deal, and for a while career takes precedence over love life. A trip to Atlantic City to celebrate Charlotte's 36th birthday results in the end of Samantha's relationship with Richard. Carrie decides to stop being an old cynic and start dating again - thank heavens!
  • Episode 70: 'Cover Girl'
    Samantha takes her mind off her break up by helping Carrie decide on the perfect cover for her book. After heated debate on what counts as 'decent' they decide on the perfect look. Meanwhile Miranda finds a man at slimming class, and together they work off the calories in the bedroom.
  • Episode 71: 'Plus One is the Loneliest Number'
    Worried about having no date to accompany here to the biggest night of her life, her own book launch, Carrie meets fellow writer Jack Berger and sparks fly. She invites him to be her 'plus one' but he has a girlfriend.  Despite the traumatic results of Samantha's chemical peel the party is a great success, made even more memorable by the arrival of a lone Jack Berger.
  • Episode 72: 'Critical Condition'
    Post book release Carrie is feeling self conscious. A chance meeting with the woman who dated Aidan after her makes her feel worse. Carrie's book receives a rave review in The New York Times, but she continues to worry about the review she would receive after her treatment of Aidan. Miranda is finding motherhood testing, and an unlikely babysitter in Samantha.
  • Episode 73: 'The Big Journey'
    This episode sees a sex starved Carrie heading off to San Francisco on her book tour, with Samantha in tow.  Big appears at the signing and wants to talk about her portrayal of him in the book. Before long they are back in the bedroom. In New York, Charlotte embarks on a 'sex only' relationship with her divorce lawyer Harry.
  • Episode 74: 'I Love a Charade'
    Season Five ends with a wedding, surprisingly that of someone the girls had all thought was gay! Carrie begins to wonder whether a relationship can work without that special 'zsa zsa zsa', or if she should just settle for someone she gets on with. Running into a newly single Berger at a party in the Hamptons helps her to decide! Meanwhile Charlotte is falling for her 'just sex' partner Harry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but sweet 13 Jan 2004
As always, each episode is sassy, sexy and fantastic fun to watch, but there are a couple of problems with this series.
Firstly, the series is very short, I'm used to seeing 16 or more episodes in a SATC series, but this series comprises only EIGHT episodes... not nearly enough :(
Secondly, there are no special features on the DVDs! At first, I though "OK, fair enough" but anyone who takes a look at the HBO Online Store will probably notice that the american version of this series features commentaries, a quiz, featurettes and more. (I might consider buying the American Region 1 DVDs in future)
On the whole, a good series, but it is missing extras.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the previous ones 24 Oct 2003
I realise I am probably in the minority with what I am saying here, but I just don't think that Sex and the City series five was a good as 1,2,3 and 4. For starters there's only 8 episodes which was a bit annoying, but they're not even up to the usual standards. Don't get me wrong - I am a HUGE fan of SATC but I just thought that these episodes, like some of the one's in series 6 (not realeased yet) lacked.... for want of a better word.... oomph. There was very little to them, but still worth buying just to complete a collection. As usual, Samantha is the one to say or initiate all the great one liners such as (Sam) "Ladies, Seamen 12'oclock" (Miranda) "I hope that when I turn around that there are sailors there because with her, you never know" and it is really easy viewing - great for a girly night in or to cheer you up when you're a bit depressed, (which is probably only why most of us watch satc anyway!) But just be careful - don't pay too much for it and don't hold your expectations too high, it's not worth your last penny like the other series more than were.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not that good.... 21 Sep 2006
By Deborah
I am an avid fan of SATC but I really do feel that this series should have been delayed until the girls had had their babies. It seems rushed, the stories don't really hang together and seem like individual episodes. I think that fact that this series only consisted of 8 episodes - left the fans feeling a bit short changed. Obviously its understandable considering that the producers had to contend with two iminent births... but maybe if it had been delayed 12 months we would have something a bit more like the usual standard. Beside those negative points... the clothes are still gorgeous, the script is witty, the girls look lovely and there is still a lot to be enjoyed!! I would recommend this series to seasoned fans. It would not be a series I would suggest that someone started with, but still deserves four stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars it just keeps on getting better and better 16 Feb 2004
Out of the five box sets this for me has to be the best so far. Having waited for so long it finally arrived, and it's just fantastic. I never tire of the characters and the stories just keep getting better, lots of little twists along the way - and surprising endings - what more can you want. To me they're never predictable and sometimes the endings you want aren't always what happens, a true reflection of real life. A brilliant box set, cannot wait for the sixth to arrive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but not enough of it. 22 April 2004
Of course for any fan the series content remains excellent. I knock itdown a star though because having just watched series 2, 3, and 4 each onewith 18 episodes i was a bit upset to see this had only 8 episodes. Andthey had the cheek to charge us the same money!!. Its still veryenjoyable though and worth having.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short and not so sweet 26 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I am an avid fan of SATC and was frustrated that this took so long to come out. Once it did I was slightly underwhelmed. Don't get me wrong. The show is still good, the dialogue witty, the episodes well-constructed but a couple of the episodes (like the one where Carrie finally meets up with Mr. Big agains in San Francisco) just don't work and limp along dissatisfactorily. The girls also all seem quite catty in this series and very unsupportive of one another, some of their energy seems to have vanished and they don't seem 'together' as a group anymore. I hear that Series 6 is right back on track again so this was obviously a less inspired moment. First-time viewers should certainly not start with this series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's the rest?!? 2 Jan 2004
I was surprised to find that this series was so short. It kind of left you feeling like you missed something. I even searched the box thinking I was missing a part of the package. It was a little disappointing. But, I am hoping that season 6 will be enough to redeem SATC for the grand finale. I don't mean to complain since I love the show and the first four seasons were excellent. I hope that at least one of them finds happiness in the end!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been much better! 1 Dec 2003
First of all, I love love love Sex and the City. As an expat in London, it is the only show that reminds me of the city and people I love and miss. However, these eight episodes are a bit of a dissappointment. Carrie is too bitter, Charlotte has gotten too dumb down, Samantha is always Samantha, and Miranda's characteristic angry New Yorker is becoming annoying and not as witty as the character first started out. I think the writers were definitely contemplating ending the show at 5 (zsa zsa zue? who came up with that stupid phrase) Things get better in season 6. Avid fans like me will buy, but once you get home you will find yourself wanting more. 8 episodes are not enough to get into no matter how much you love the characters. This is not SATC best season.
