I have never searched out the show because I just don't like it that much. Do people really spend that much time worrying about clothes and sex? My friends and I never talk that way!!

I guess I would be the silly Charlotte on the show!

I checked out the show when it first came out in the 90s and thought it was pretty real,I mean it was based on reality anyway.

But as I've matured I see that it's pretty much about a bunch of shallow,opportunistic socialites who have spawned a whole fan base of cosmopolitan wannabees

I love the show but I do not consider myself shallow or a wannabee at all.........

The show has touched on many aspects of these character's lives in the show such as death, cancer, infertility, heartache, mental illness and other real-life occurances that can affect everyday women and how they come together in the end to help each other in life's struggles. So aside from the shoes, sex and all the materialistic aspects of the show......there is a human side too that I think that people can relate to in a way.

Yes! When I was single and would go out with my girlfriends, it was very similiar. We were all in our thirties and forties and the show was extreme but all of us did relate to one or more of the characters. We couldn't afford Milano Blahniks but we did talk about and spend lots of money on shoes and Cosmos or some type of Martini.

Sex and the wrong city: Movie's world premiere held in London | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle (broken link)
Did anyone see the Acorn hat SJP was wearing in London? I bet the squirrels will be all over that action!!

I notice that it's all women at the premiere. Most men don't consider the four characters very attractive. Sarah Jessica Parker relies on fashion rather than acting ability or looks to stay popular. I thought the other characters were pretty good actors. I've heard a lot of people (all female) say SJP is 'beautiful' but what they really mean is that she dresses really good. In my mind that's not enough to warrant continuing attention.

EDIT: I understand the appeal of the show was that most women could relate to one or more characters, and not necessarily their sexual exploits. I just wanted to point out that men watch the show out of morbid curiosity, not because they think any of the characters are hot.
