...some, especially in the first 2 seasons, IMO, were really clever. I found the later seasons less so...and I never got how Carrie spent so much $$$ on her MB shoes ! (Funny when she was shoe-mugged, lol) Couldn't relate. But I liked when she was with Mr Big, rather than that politician( tea, anyone? ) or Aidan. I have not read the book on which it was based, and haven't seen the movie...yet.
