sex and the city was one of the most groundbreaking shows of its time. Although the series hasn’t aged well, it remains a cult classic that attracts new fans with every passing day. While there were many wonderful sex and the city episodes produced, there are a few that stand out. We’ve rounded up our favorite episode from each season for your consideration.
Season 1 of sex and the city focused heavily on Carrie Bradshaw’s sex column. That doesn’t mean the best episode is heavily focused on Carrie, though. The absolute best episode of the inaugural season largely centered around Samantha Jones.
In Episode 9, “The Tortoise and the Hare”, the girls deal with the emotional fallout of attending a friend’s wedding. Feeling discouraged, Samantha agrees to spend time with Bernie Turtletaub, a man with horrible breath. Samantha tries to change her style and adjust her demeanor into a man she finds acceptable to this day. It didn’t work out, but hearing Samantha refer to the man as a “superior repairman” still makes us laugh.
Season 2 of sex and the city was dotted with many superb episodes. The show’s second season largely dealt with the relationship between Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big. So it’s no surprise that the best episode of the season has a good chunk of Mr. Big in it.
In the Season 2 episode, “The Exquisite Pain!”, Carrie is faced with the realization that Mr. Big has, once again, disregarded her in his life when he reveals that he may have to move to Paris. After insisting that he didn’t want her to follow him to Paris, to be with him, she loses her temper and throws McDonald’s all over his apartment. In the final moments of the episode, Carrie frees Mr. Big. The scene is incredibly beautiful and haunts us years later.
Season 3 of sex and the city has been filled with many ups and downs. There are also several notable episodes. For Season 3, we agree with the IMDb ratings. The most popular episode of the season is “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.
The episode revolves around the wedding of Charlotte York and Trey MacDougal. The subplots, including Miranda and her date pretending to people they’re not, and Carrie finally revealing her affair to Aidan Shaw, steal the show. While Miranda’s storyline is far dumber than Carrie’s decidedly weighty reveal, all of the stories mesh neatly together. It remains one of our favorites sex and the city episodes.
Season 4 of sex and the city covered a lot of ground. Carrie rekindled her romance with Aidan before getting engaged and eventually breaking off the engagement. Miranda reveals her pregnancy and Trey and Charlotte’s marriage completely disintegrates. Samantha also finds love in unexpected places.
While several Season 4 episodes are worth repeating, “I Heart NY,” the Season 4 finale might be the best. The episode, often called a “love letter to New York City,” centers on Mr. Big and Carrie hitting the town as a sendoff before the financier moves to Napa. Although the episode aired shortly after 9/11, it was not written in reaction to the terrorist attacks. The serendipitous nature of it all makes it a bit more special.
Season 5 of sex and the city was shortened to reflect Sarah Jessica Parker’s actual pregnancy. While the season included far fewer episodes than those that preceded it, there were still some bright spots.
Of the few episodes produced for Season 5, we like “I Love a Charade” the best. THE sex and the city The season finale episode takes Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda out of Manhattan. The foursome visited the Hamptons in a previous season, but did so in Season 5 in much more style. Bobby Fine and Bitzy Von Muffling’s ethereal wedding served as the perfect backdrop to watch Carrie try to find love with Jack Berger, Charlotte come to terms with her feelings for Harry Goldenblatt, and Miranda wonder what to do with her romantic interest in Steve. Brady.
The last season
Season 6 of sex and the city was the last of the show and was certainly eventful. Cut into two parts, fans first watched Carrie’s romance with Jack Berger blossom and then die. Miranda and Steve got back together, Samantha found out she had cancer and found the love of her life, and Charlotte found her flawed perfect other half.
The best episode of the season is undoubtedly the two-part finale. In the show’s final moments, everyone found relationships that worked for them. Mr. Big chased Carrie to Paris while Miranda and Steve found a place for their family in Brooklyn. Harry and Charlotte have fulfilled their dream of starting a family, and Samantha has found her perfect partner in Smith Jared. While there were complaints about the “too perfect” ending, we can safely say that it was absolutely satisfying.
The stories of Charlotte, Miranda and Carrie continue in And just like that… the Max reboot of sex and the city. Season 2 of And just like that… begins June 22.
