Remember When Sex And The City Was Considered Excellent Television? (How Quickly We Forget)
"Even as The Sopranos
has ascended to TV's Mt. Olympus, the reputation of Sex and the City
has shrunk and faded, like some tragic dry-clean-only dress tossed into a decade-long hot cycle. ... But Sex and the City
, too, was once one of HBO's flagship shows. It was the peer of The Sopranos
, albeit in a different tone and in a different milieu, deconstructing a different genre."
