American television can make foot ulcers and brain-death into moving and funny drama; sex, it can only turn into a vehicle for cheap laughs.

The true power of the SATC girl squad has only been realised in the show's extraordinary durability.

More social satire than sitcom, it looks openly at relationships steeped in ambivalence, fear, and the games people play.

Parker, with her combination of sweetness and savvy, does a lot to smooth over the rough spots... A nice confection rather than a classic.
