What did I just watch? Am I high? Not high enough? What did I do wrong? Did I have something to do with the Linbergh baby in a previous life? Cause this shit is painful.
Sex And The City was an institution and it was something I loved. But if we’re basing shit off this episode, I would like to know why anyone greenlit this nightmare. And don’t say it’s cause I am not in my 50’s – that has nothing to do with it.
What it has to do with is that it just lost its charm and I have to wonder is that because Kim Cattrall isn’t there?
Miranda and Charlotte are the same old, same old. It’s nice that somethings don’t change. But one has to also wonder why it is that these two didn’t evolve and are the same old.
Miranda is still uptight and doesn’t know how to interact with people. She’s going to say all of the wrong things and think that she’s trying too hard.
Charlotte is still an Upper East Sider, trying to be down to earth, but not even close.
And Carrie – I want to love Carrie. I have always loved Carrie. Carrie made you feel like you could do and be anything. She made you feel free to be yourself, as if there was nothing bad with feeling, wanting, and trying to live out your dreams. But Carrie – as she tries to adapt to the new decade, she’s still a woman that tries to please everyone but herself. She’s still a woman that can’t tell left from right.
And she’s still a woman that lets her life revolve around a man. Look, Mr. Big used to be one of my favorites, but but lord, even that changed. His love for Carrie is endearing, but he lost that ummm – je ne sais quoi – which hey, sure we all do at a certain point.
But suddenly where as Sex and The City was all about gaining things in life – yourself, love, independence, and more – And Just Like That is about loss. Ok, sure, you have to find a new way to tell a story and as we get older – we’re going to loose things.
Though Samanthas absence is explained – she’s moved to London and cut the girls out after Carrie no longer needed a publicist. I don’t get it – makes Samantha something that I never thought that she would be. Because no matter what happened she was there for the others. So are we saying that she’s been fake the entire time?
Another thing we loose.
We’re going to loose a lot of things.
But what we’re also going to find is a new way of life. But in this story – in this iteration of Sex and The City – and I am only judging by this episode – no one is finding anything of importance. What we’re finding is that the world is more open – which is great – but what we’re also finding is that none of these characters have learned to evolve.
They have just learned how to become more awkward.
And more stuck in the 90’s and early 00’s.
Miranda may be the only character that gets worse with time. She is always feeling this need to over explain herself and it’s kind of annoying. Most lawyers I know are more reserved. They don’t and won’t over speak. They know that shit can be used against them.
Carrie – what my issue with her is, she’s on a podcast and seems more closed off than ever. She’s not comfortable with shit being raunchy? Where did that happen? Is it because Samantha isn’t around to tell her how to deal with things and how to be open? When the fuck did she become so closed off?
Charlotte, well we expect her to be where she is. An uptight Mom whose life is her family. And it works for her.
The only good thing about the show is the new characters. The older ones are spending too much time hanging onto nostalgia and forgetting that this isn’t 1998. Cause like it isn’t and if we’re spending too much time hanging onto that, what we’re loosing is the fact that time evolves.
The kids – Brady, Rose, and Lily are the people that I want to know more about.
And it’s sad – because all of these characters I loved so much. And now – now I am just like whatever.
How can 40 minutes change so many years of watching a show?
But the worst part? The end.
Mr. Big – he has a heart attack and when Carrie comes back from Lily’s piano recital and finds him on the ground, clutching his arm, still alive and looks up at her. She stands there, staring at him and then goes to hold him as he dies? Like why didn’t she call 911? What the actual fuck?
Like seriously. WHAT DID I JUST WATCH?
I really want to know? Carrie would have called for help. She didn’t here. She just held him screaming? Like what the actual fuck.
I really hope that this show gets better.
Because right now… hard no.
And Just Like That... they killed my love for a series. To that I say f*ck you to the people that thought that was okay.
- Anthony and Stanford are still lovable and their bitter bitchiness – I love. They are adorable and I stan.
- Lily is hilarious
- Brady is a sex crazed little shit and if I was Miranda and stepped on his used condom, I woulda grounded him for life.
- Miranda is just as miserable as ever
- Where can I find a man like Harry? He may be the only person I am find with not changing.
- Dave Annabelle is hot AF.
- Sara Ramirez is awesome in the show.
- Can I repeat that Dave Annabelle is HOT AF.
- Carrie needs to loosen up.
- Lily can play the piano like no other.
And Just Like That streams on HBO Max.
