This is one of the funniest and realistic shows around. The characters are great and it makes excellent viewing for a girls night in. I can't fault any of the episodes, they are all brilliant. There is definately something for everyone. It really is like watching your best friends on screen. The episodes on this DVD definately get 5 stars from me.
One problem though: why has it not been released on the UK pal format? I was very disappointed to discover that it doesn't work on my TV and so I have to watch it on my computer which just isn't the same.
Great show, Bad DVD

This was the first time that the girls, Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte graced our screens as the straight talking, sex talking career girls of New York that we all wanted to emulate in one way or another. It's great to look back and so how the series changed and developed as the seasons wore on. And it's still great to watch. If you are going to collect the box sets... then this is a good place to start!

The whole Sex and The City series make wonderfully compulsive and uplifting viewing... rather like watching an agony aunt column on relationships through the eyes of four quite different, but equally disarming women. Women get to identify with the million-and-one observations of the four women, whilst men get a fascinating insight into the female psyche. However, there are no cringe-inducing cliches here.
If you haven't seen the whole series on TV then you get the chance to see what you've been missing and if you've already seen it, like me, then you get to savour the fabulous Carrie-Big saga. A true love story told without over-sentimentality and complete with all the frustrations and diversions of real life. This is a classic series of Friends proportions, though with a little more drama. There are plenty of laugh-out-loud scenes and the dialogue is witty and concise with no 'filler' material in sight. The characters are perfectly drawn and the one drawback of purchasing Series One alone is that you'll soon wish you'd bought the box set instead.

This is Bridget Jones with New York chic. No large grey knickers appear on the pert butts of the four thirty-something sassy women as they navigate through the minefield that is the Big Apple. Sex right side up, wrong side up, al fresco, singly, in pairs, threes and groups, gay and mechanical, monogamy, love, prostitution and nymphomania all come under the microscope for discussion and/or experimentation...... A major health warning for men who think that girl-talk is all frocks and lipstick.

When I first heard of this series, I approached it with a sense of fear and trepidation. After all, a US sitcom based around four 30-something New Yorker women taking the proverbial out of the weaker sex's "athletic" abilities did not seem to bode well, let alone promise any degree of entertainment. After all, we all think we're perfect, don't we...
Anyway, after getting over this initial stigma, I decided to give the series a whirl. Initially it was a bit of a shock, as I was expecting the standard US turgid pap, but the first signs were promising - no canned laughter! As the first episode progressed I also realised that this series was conforming to the standard ideals of HBO programming - excellent performances (spot on casting all round), brilliant dialogue, and (almost as importantly!) four letter words and nudity! Having come across from the cossetting land of Friends, this made a most refreshing change. It also comes across at times as a slightly less paranoid, female biased version of something Woody Allen may have produced if he worked for HBO.
To cut to the chase, I'd recommend this to anyone looking for an intelligent and genuinely funny comedy programme, but with the proviso that you have to have a fairly broad mind! Okay the dialogue does have a go at us blokes, but not in a "all men are scum" way, and to be fair, the women aren't exactly portrayed as angels all the time, either...!
And if you think Series 1 was good, just you wait for Series 2...!

The hip, chic and sassy wise cracking mega babes of the metropolis that is, Manhatten, take us on a journey through the battlefield that is SEX! Managing to overcome diabloical and outrageous sexual encounters with the opposite sex, the four sexy girls manage to pull in the laughs from female and male counterparts alike...At times sentimental and encouraging, it brings home a lesson to us all...sex, be it in a city, is fun!!

Consistently funny, and scarily close to the truth to how women think.
Definetly a girly night in DVD but if you want to teach your man a thing or two make them watch it.
