Carrie finds out that Big was married once, and that he had a threesome. Charlotte's boyfriend wants to have a threesome. Miranda feels left out because she's never been "threesome material", so she responds to a classified ad to validate her sexual appeal. Samantha becomes involved with a married man, and his wife offers to have a threesome to keep the marriage together, which Samantha declines.

CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER:   Female fantasy, pure and simple.  Not the lives that woman have, but the lives they wish they had.  And funny, very funny.

PROS AND CONS:  There isn’t a lot to say about this show at this point.  I am through 8 episodes and I still have 5 more seasons to get through.  I am looking forward to it.

This show has two things going for it that make it outstanding.  One is the format.  It is only a half hour show but it moves so quickly and is so engaging that the viewer often time feels that it is over to quickly.

The second thing is the actual storyline / writing / acting.  These are fascinating and engrossing characters.  So much so, that you are envious that you don’t have the table next to them at a swanky Manhattan eatery.
