The title says it all. I actually expect to hear a lot of, “how could you not like it?!” type of remarks but I’ve never ever really gotten why it’s such a popular show. What am I missing? The first SATC movie played yesterday and I cracked up a few times because of how overly dramatic everything was. I don’t know, I’m a HUGE friends fan but can’t understand what the deal is about SATC.
What makes you gals LOVE SATC? Please enlighten me.

Well, I don’t think it’s fair the judge the show on either of the movies. I loved the show, but I will admit both of the movies were not that great and pretty lame. Of course I saw them anyway, and would see any other sequels they make, because the show was great, and for me, I became invested in the characters.

I actually was a huge fan of the show while it was still on, but never saw the movies. The show was good, for me, because I could relate to dating guys who were no good, and it was fun to see a show about women who considered each other “soul mates.” I could also relate to the characters’ mistakes and flaws and their sabotaging of good relationships.
Of course, it was also fun to lust after the gorgeous shoes and clothes and their glam if unrealistic lifestyles. I’ve heard that the movies don’t really do the series justice.

I LOVE Friends. I never watched Sex and the City, though. I saw the first movie, i’ve seen a few episodes, I just don’t find the lifestyles very interesting. And they’re always whining about their sex lives and the men they date, which i never get. I want to scream at them, “LEAVE THE JERK”!!!! half the time. When Bigs dumped her at the altar (or left, whatever) i was just like, “seriously? Sigh”
I’ll watch it when it comes out on video ($1 redbox!), but overall, not a huge fan of the whole series or movie. I can’t relate I guess and they sorta annoy me! But that’s ok…lots of people find Friends annoying and I have seen every episode like, 20 times. I own the whole box set =]

@ejs4y8 ditto. I own the whole box set of Friends as well. I have actually tried to sit through a number of SATC shows but still don’t get it. Just like you, I always feel like they’re whining.

You and me both. I’ve never watched Sex & the city.
