Broadcast from until , the original run of the show had a total of 94 episodes. Throughout its six-year run, the show received contributions from various producers, writers, and directors, principally Michael Patrick King. Set and filmed in New York City and based on Candace Bushnell 's book of the same name , the show follows the lives of a group of four women—three in their mid-thirties and one in her forties—who, despite their different natures and ever-changing sex lives, remain inseparable and confide in each other. Starring Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw and co-starring Kim Cattrall as Samantha Jones , Kristin Davis as Charlotte York , and Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes , the quirky series had multiple continuing storylines that tackled relevant and modern social issues such as sexuality , safe sex , promiscuity , and femininity , while exploring the difference between friendships and romantic relationships. The deliberate omission of the better part of the early lives of the four women was the writers' way of exploring social life—from sex to relationships—through each of their four very different, individual perspectives. Sex and the City has received both acclaim and criticism for its subjects and characters, and is credited with helping to increase HBO's popularity as a network.

Man Repeller has broken down everything from the big stuff, like the Aiden vs. The rent-controlled, Upper East Side apartment where she lives in early seasons of the show looks like something that was airlifted out of Gothic literature, replete with giant dripping wax candles , bizarre lamps , heavy red curtains and a red velvet duvet strewn across a mahogany four-poster bed that would make Edgar Allen Poe proud. The vibe, in sum, is dim, thick and claustrophobic. But then!
At one time, around the year , their whole gay cult of youth thing seemed quite funny and quite ripe in Sex and the City. Their love of handbags and designer labels appeared gleeful and sometimes satirical in an American Psycho kind of way, and their dreams, oh, their dreams, appeared to chime with those of many a late-twentysomething looking for love. When we last saw Bradshaw Sarah Jessica Parker and her gaggle of gay impersonators they were suffering the ups and downs of having the New York society wedding of the year. Except not.
