It's June 6, 1998. The number one movie in the United States is 'The Truman Show.' NBC ruled television, with 'Friends,' 'E.R.', and 'Seinfeld' dominating the ratings. Brandy and Monica were on top of the music charts, and, oh, and 'Sex and the City' aired its first episode.

Welcome to The Dipp's 'Shortcomings,' a new 'Sex and the City' podcast from Sam Bush (aka @bravohistorian) and Chris Lewis. They're going all-in on our problematic fave — the memories, the men, the fashion, and, of course, Aidan's obsession with KFC. Sam and Chris will recap all 92 episodes of the series, two movies, and whatever the revival is. So grab a cosmo and join Sam and Chris in taking a critical eye to a show that changed television.

    S1 E10: The Baby Shower

    Sam and Chris take on Laney, who is a lot to handle! They wonder if the writers have fully forgotten the previous episode, question the name Shayla, and beg the women to stop wearing black. Oh, and Samantha continues to be an icon!

    S1 EP9: The Turtle and the Hare

    S1 EP9: The Turtle and the Hare

    Sam and Chris take on one the Turtle and ponder whether a later episode handles all of this better. Join them as they discuss how the girls should just let Charlotte enjoy herself, struggle to remember the breakout Vince Vaughan movie, and ponder whether they should have just watched season six’s Catch-38? Spoiler alert: they should have.

    We’ll be back next with recapping season 1, episode 10, The Baby Shower. Until then, you can rate and review us wherever you listen.

    S1 E8: Three's A Crowd

    S1 E8: Three's A Crowd

    Sam and Chris take on an episode of SATC that has a lot of potential to be great...and that’s about it. Join them as they figure out which lady they would go to bed with, try and tackle the mystery of Jack’s mouth, and take on Carrie’s attempt at being Kathleen Kelly. Spoiler alert: she fails. They also get into episodes they look forward to talking about and more photos from the set.

    We’ll be back next with recapping season 1, episode 9, The Turtle and the Hare. Until then, you can rate and review us wherever you listen.

    S1 EP7: The Monogamists

    It’s Shortcomings: After Dark as Sam and Chris record at the late, late hour of 8 PM on a Wednesday. They get into an episode they are both struggling to remember, Carrie’s continual struggle to simply understand Big, the storyline that HBO said no to, and someone is revealed to be a Skipper stan.

    We’ll be back next with recapping season 1, episode 8, Three’s A Crowd. Until then, you can rate and review us wherever you listen.

    S1 E6: Secret Sex

    S1 E6: Secret Sex

    Sam and Chris are joined by Bairam Rizai to chat about the upcoming SATC revival, being the man behind the icon in a viral moment, and how extra works (spoiler alert: it’s brutal out here).

    And then they go all-in on perhaps the first great episode of the show--Miranda continues to be an athleisure queen and very problematic, we see Charlotte’s entire arc in one quick flashback, Samantha does nothing (again!), and Carrie has the first of many breakdowns/breakthroughs.

    We’ll be back next with recapping season 1, episode 7, The Monogamists. Until then, you can rate and review us wherever you listen.

Rosie Bloomgarden ,

LOL thank you

Sam and Chris — are we soul mates? Thank you for this delightful podcast about SATC. It’s like you read my mind every episode

I REALLY wanted to love this

But it’s so hard when the hosts completely hate every episode so far. I’ll second the notion that someone over 30 needs to co host. The lack of reference these two have over what the culture was truly like in the 90s is astonishing. I love the earlier seasons more than the others and I just don’t think they “get it”. Please do more research and stop with the insights that are so basic they are annoying. Do they even like the show?

Love

This podcast makes me happy!! Would love to hear twice weekly to get through the series in less than a decade ;-)
