Sex and the City 2/15

Wow, almost 2:00 a.m. EST and still no "SATC" thread!? Anyway, really good episode tonight. Although, I feel the series wrap up is rushed. I didn't expect the goodbye dinner at the beginning of this episode. And I thought that would last longer than 2 minutes. Also, no send offs for Carrie? No one went to the airport with her or anything? Odd. Anyway, again, I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. And everyone knows at this point how it's going to end next week

I agree with only that last sentence. I thought it was a dull, humorless episode that totally lacked focus or structure. I'm hoping for a much better finale because I was really unimpressed tonight.

Carrie's blowup on Big was just scathing and uncomfortable to watch. Was is deserved, probably, but it sure doesn't make Carrie all that sympathetic going into the series finale next week.

The Paris scenes go from the ecstasy to the agony as Carrie's homesickness overtakes her.

Sam's speech and hot flashes were amusing.

And damn, the show ran over, so I had to scramble and watch the final 2 minutes "live" (with no context as to what was happening as I was recording it on my ReplayTV). Grr...

Decent episode last night. I still enjoyed it even though there was very little humor - honestly, I haven't found this show ever to be all that funny...just engaging.

I'm not a big fan of the series, and I haven't watched it faithfully over the years. If this episode - which by all logic would be one of the ones getting special creative attention - is typical, then I think I've saved myself a lot of time during the past 7 seasons.

Well, the show is not just about humor. And I wouldn't expect the last few episodes to be funny. However, when Carrie wiped out in Dior, that was hilarious. Sure, it was pure schtick and physical. But I wasn't expecting it and literally laughed out loud. Well executed scene! Also, the scene with Big was justified. Completely. He's dicked her around for years. Carrie is feeling vulernable and he shows up. And she lost it. But I don't remember them parting on bad terms the last time. Before that? Yes. Overall, I thought the show was very touching. There were several very emotional scenes. Which I think the show does very well. Such as the episode where Miranda's mom dies. My all-time favorite "SATC" episode.

I can understand what they're doing and why, but the setup to the justification/reasoning for a reunification with Big is weak/rushed.

You knew it was coming, but the way they handled it was weak.

Here's a summary... goodbye NY, let's spend time with that, hello Paris, more time, I'm with Russian, more time, oh nevermind, back to Big, series over...

Just doesn't seem to mesh.

No the series finale is not on tonight.

This show has been a constant companion for the last 6 years or so, and I am going to miss it.

I thought last week's show felt more real - The fight between Carrie and Miranda really seemed real - everybody has got friends who can't or won't accept change, you just have to work through it or find new friends.

Next Sunday I believe.

I was underwhelmed by the show.

His name is Freddy, and it was supposed to be revealed this season, but I can't remember it is was or not.

Funny how when Carrie was telling Miranda that she missed new york because....


I (and probably everyone) thought she was going to say 'I miss my job, my own apartment, my friends, my routine and my life!' she says she misses a guy!
Very atypical of the show.

BTW, anyone think its odd that she up and leaves a friend who one week ago she was worried was going to die from breast cancer mid-way through her treatments?

Today on Oprah, the 4 ladies from SATC will be on (their only "farewell" interview with all 4 of them together). Check your local listings.

I caught it last night. I enjoyed sammantha's speech the best. The ending looks real predictable right now. I will be suprised if it doesn't end with Carrie going back to new york with Big.

I wonder if the fact they are trying to make a full length Sex and the City movie will affect the "closure" of the final episode?
