    Sentimental in the City 5: Sex & The City Season Five

    Sentimental in the City 5: Sex & The City Season Five

    This is the FIRST class sleeper? Put on your visor and trapeze dress, it's time for the big bag of fun that is season five. We talk about Atlantic City, big wing woman energy, how everyone must open for a dog eventually, the continued comedic genius of Chris Noth, the FINAL act of the MacDougalls Are Coming For Supper, the dangers of falling for Jack Berger and the inspiring self-love of Harry Goldenblatt. Carrie clangs out while 'dating the city' and the fashion is disappointing but not without its charms.

    Sentimental in the City 4: Sex and The City, Season 4

    Sentimental in the City 4: Sex and The City, Season 4

    Don't you bring that cardboard baby in here! This week we're coming into Season 4 with tears, and the firm knowledge that CABS ARE BULLLSSSSH*T. We discuss the comic chops of Chris Noth, the confusing friendship of Aidan and Steve, the great When Harry Met Sally drama that never was, and we go very deep on the financial awkwardness of friendship. We praise the hugely under-sung Walker Lewis and wonder what the hell is going with Richard Wright (creature of the night)

    Sentimental in the City 3: Sex and the City, Season 3

    Take your seats, turn off your phones, it's time to settle in for the National Theatre's presentation of THE MCDOUGALLS ARE COMING FOR SUPPER and there will be no intermission. This week we discuss everyone's favourite members of the Scottish-American aristocracy, Aidan and the affair, and the general neglect of dogs in this season. We also discuss how and why this is Sex and the City's most problematic season – did the writers take their own status as being the Big Sex Show for granted? We rhapsodise about Bill Kelly the piss politician and the great Power Lad divide between Caroline and Dolly.

A joy

Such a pleasure to listen to this smart, diverse group of women who are just so full of joy discussing those books that are mostly severely under appreciated. Who cares about what we ‘should’ read, when there are so many books that bring such happiness? I very much look forward to new episodes every week. Big thank you to Caroline.
