Ten years ago today, we bid farewell to Sex and the City–otherwise known as the “girl bible” and one of HBO’s best series. For six years, we lived vicariously through the fabulous (and dramatic) New York lives of Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York, Miranda Hobbs and Samantha Jones. Sure, they wore designer threads, never took the subway and could afford at least one brunch a week, but their discourse on men, sex and relationships struck a universal cord that has sinced continued on through two films and syndication.
Each character had their niche, but Samantha’s penchant for lovers and hilarious one-liners make her a standout amongst the legendary clique. While her commentary on love, sex and everything in between may seem brash, we all secretly nod our heads in agreement.
