Mike Jensen has seen the Sex and the City series many times. Elise Castle has never seen a single episode.
"We Couldn't Help But Wonder" what would happen if these two went on an episode by episode journey through the whole series.
Join us as Mike watches for the (insert embarrassing number here) time and Elise is watching for the very first. We will discuss how the series holds up almost 20 years later, our own experiences living in NYC, and the debate over too much cranberry juice in the Cosmopolitan.
Documentary and Season Recap!
Elise and Mike talk about the HBO Max documentary as well as the (first? only?) season of And Just Like That... to talk about behind the scenes antics, costumes, so many shoes, major hat drama, and to wonder why no one should wear pink. They also clear up a few things about the series, and answer some questions. And just like that, its the end of an era... (?)
Seeing The Light
It's the finale of season one of And Just Like That... (we're being optimistic) Miranda gets some new information from Che. Charlotte works hard to plan the perfect day for Rock. Nya and Andre are taking some time apart. Seema can't seem(a) to complete a phone conversation with Carrie. And Carrie thinks she's getting a message from the other side through her lamp. Plus, the diner! And a very surprising (or is it?) encounter on an elevator...
No Strings Attached
Carrie prepares for a do-over with the teacher but can't bring herself to take her wedding ring off. Miranda and Che's relationship is going better than expected, but still hits a few snags. Charlotte is dealing with developments involving her children. And at a shelter in Brooklynn, worlds collide as our core ladies new friends meet, and Nya and Andre continue to struggle with what to do about kids.
Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered
After coming clean to Che about her marriage, Miranda has to decide how and what to tell Steve. Charlotte and Lily clash over an online post. And as Carrie takes stock of her past (mostly her clothes), she also begins to learn more about the mysterious and cool new neighbor who lives on the first floor.
Sex And The Widow
Carrie has a new book, and her editor loves it but wonders if there can't be a glimmer of hope. Meanwhile, Nya is having a hard time telling Andre that she's not pregnant, Charlotte invites Harry to play tennis and maybe regrets it, Miranda continues to pine over Che even while trying to jump start things at home, and Lisa struggles at a school function. And Carrie goes on a date, that goes extremely well, then horrifically awful, but ultimately, maybe, hopeful...
After discussing the proper pronunciation of this episode, Elise and Mike get into the details. Carrie is apartment shopping and then apartment buying, apartment disliking, and eventually apartment selling. Charlotte tries to deal with her ever changing daughters. Anthony brings Carrie with him to visit the least pushy plastic surgeon ever (or is he?). Miranda is... being a bit obsessive about one activity in particular. Ultimately Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte have a picnic to remember, and Carrie gets a glimpse of Seema's family and culture.
I love Mike and Elise! I found this podcast a couple weeks ago and I am already on Season 5. I literally cannot stop listening. They are so entertaining and funny. I also adore the musical theatre references and the way they take the time to mention each director, writer and actor/actress and what they’ve been in. They have the perfect balance of staying on topic and getting silly by getting off track from time to time.
There are so many SATC podcasts, but this one is by far the best.
After listening to this one, I wanted more SATC, but the other podcasts don’t compare 😞
Love this podcast
I love this podcast - Elise and Mike are so funny. As a SATC fan since I was in middle school (in the early aughts) I’ve probably watched the series 10 times through. It’s fun to hear a fresh perspective on the show from Elise. I’m listening to this podcast from the start for the third time in a row!
