Product Description

Sex and City S2 DVD B/set-; Sex And The City S3 B/Set-; Sex And The City S4 B/Set-; Sex And The City S5 B/Set-; Sex And The City Season Six-

From Amazon.co.uk

Sex and the City managed, over its six-season run, to become something of an icon. It's one of those programs that’s passed into pop culture; the show that launched a thousand personality tests, each asking whom you identify with most: prim and proper Charlotte, career girl Miranda, man-hungry Samantha, or introspective (but always impeccably dressed) columnist Carrie Bradshaw.

The cast isn’t as truly an ensemble as, say, Friends; Carrie is the main focus, with Sarah Jessica Parker's notoriously outrageous wardrobe tending to draw as much attention as the plot of the episode. Funny without being farcical, Sex and the City was also touching and aspirational. Unashamedly girly, the series created a kind of modern fantasy: four friends, each with her own distinct personality, finding her way around the battlefield of life and love in New York City. Though Sex and the City sparked controversy over whether it represented a new age of feminism, or, conversely, was deeply traditional or even damaging, it was always undeniably entertaining nonetheless.

This shoebox style boxset contains all the episodes (and costs considerably less than a pair of Manolo Blahniks) and so is ideal for catching up, ready for the hotly rumoured movie version. -- Sarah Dobbs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It seems from other reviews that my feelings on this boxset are not unique and so I can be brief.

The show itself is outstanding with six seasons of dynamite; witty, intelligent, moving and captivating all at once, it truly is one the finest shows to come out from across the pond in a generation, right up there with Scrubs, Friends, South Park, Family Guy and pre 2000 Simpsons. It also ends on the high and never outstays its welcome.

However the boxset itself is a little bit of a let down. Whilst the packaging is nice, once the DVDs are in he player, things slip. Firstly, there is no 'play all' feature which does get a little annoying but even move so is the lack of chapters. If, half way through and episode, the phone rings, the kitchen explodes, the baby cries or the door goes and you are forced to stop, you have to fast forward through the episode the old-fashioned way to get back to your scene - what is this VHS?

This should not deter you from buy the set though provide that (like me):

1: Picture quality is not important and you couldn't care about the Blue Ray fad.
2: It's the quality of the watch and not the mechanics of the DVD that bother you.
3: Extras are something you maybe watch once if you have nothing better to do.

Personally, the above are not so important to me, but if they matter to you...

The show is brilliant enough to watch over and over again, despite a less than perfect box set for a good price. But if you were expecting some kind of duluxe edition then don't judge this one by its cover and look elsewhere.

Sex and the City is more than a TV show, it's an institution. It was the first show on television to examine how women really think and feel. Yes there is the word 'sex' in its title and sex features a lot in the show, but it is more to do with relationships and female friendship than just 'shagging' the first guy that comes along!

Series One:

The clothes seem a bit dated now but of course that's to be expected and it is now annoying to watch episodes where SJP looks at the camera and the continuous cutting to various extras with their own opinions. Highlights of the first series were 'The Baby Shower' and 'O Come All Ye Faithful'. We are introduced to Mr. Big and develop a love/hate relationship with the man who is never quite there for Carrie.

Series Two:

Is personally my favourite series as the girls are really looking and acting at their best. Carrie is recovering from her break up from Big but manages to rekindle their relationship if only for a brief period. The episode, 'La Doleur Exquise' is probably the most heartwrenching of all the episodes in Sex and the City and the viewer really feels torn as Carrie is literally forced to untangle herself from Big's grasp. Miranda meets Steve and embarks on a brief affair, whereas Charlotte continues her search for Mr. Right and Samantha comes to terms with size being an issue. The final episode of the series, 'Ex and the City' has a fantastic reworking of 'The Way We Were'. I think the highlight of this series was Carrie's impossible relationship with Big.

Series Three:

Once again begins with Carrie recovering from the Big situation and meeting Aidan.

For six series, Sarah Jessica Parker & Darren Starr bought glamour, coutre and titilation into our homes (and on a mid-week too: an unheard of feat up until then) whilst hopping onto the zeitgeist and making Cosmopolitains & Manolo Blahniks "must-have's" for the upwardly fabulous & sent sales of Apple laptops through the roof. Our four 30-something ladies made us all want a little more NY in our lives. Like the Spice Girls before them, they spawned endless "Which One Are You" relatability tests. We we're never ceased to be shocked by the X-rated and sexually head-strong exploits of Samantha. We ached for Charlotte as her prim-&-Priss fairytales of Happy-Ever-After got dashed one by one. And we smirked as Miranda lost her glacier-like front but retained her razor wit.(We were also at odds to explain how Carrie could afford A-List fashions by only writing a 10 inch column in the USA's answer to The Sun) And then there's the men....

Mr Big

Aiden

Steve

Trey

Burger

Harry

Richard

Smith

The russian (i dont have the srength or the "nerd" in me to find the correct spelling

** Add name of 1 x episode date here**

And then we mourned the loss of such an amazing series as HBO drew the curtain. But HOORAY!! the box set is here (in a suitably context-specific fabu-Box-set)

All 6 series are here in all their glory, including the dissapointingly short series 5 as S.J.P went on to have a B.A.B.Y. Having viewed them more or less back to back, it's evident the series doesn't fall foul to the occupational hazard that afflicts so many others of its kind; The charcters evolve (as does their individual style) in front of you.
