It captures a lot of the heart and charm that the original did, alongside some hard emotional truths. And despite a lot of doubt on the part of viewers when this project was announced (especially sans Samantha), as of the first two episodes the show has genuinely made a case for its return.
There’s a lot to admire here, actually, such as a real push towards inclusion which isn’t just limited to the wonderful Sara Ramirez, getting a true breakout role as comedian and podcast host Che Diaz. There’s a greater feel of community to this show, as the ensemble feels richer and more developed.
I like the show. And for those who is angry, disappointed and constantly asking “What have they done to Steve or Miranda or **** smth like that ?” I would say that’s not they(directors, producers, writers…) that’s time! Time makes people change. Now we can see the evolution… they’re not longer 20-30 years old hot girls, there are WOMEN! Beautiful, adult women, with their stories. Just accept or quit.
It's very nostalgic, entertaining and dramatic. For fans of Sex And The City it will be a celebration of their legacy. It perfectly addresses sensitive issues of today's society while fixing some problems the series might have had in the past due to ignorance from past eras.
It's very heartwarming and I hope there will be a continuation
The instability is both the point and the problem, the thing that makes you want to watch and cringe at it simultaneously. It’s poignant, even. And Just Like That … is both in on and outside of the joke, but either way the sight of someone falling makes you laugh.
The series has to update to 2021, or try to anyway. To that end, there are prominent Black characters here for pretty much the first time in series history — better late than never but about as awkward an attempt to redress its unbearable whiteness of being as you might imagine.
Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie), Cynthia Nixon (Miranda) and Kristin Davis (Charlotte) gamely tried to fill the Samantha-shaped hole with lame stuff about masturbation, gender-neutral toilets and teenagers leaving used condoms on bedroom floors, but it felt as though they were going through the motions, as if their hearts weren’t really in.
This year has been a bummer, and so is the sequel series. The zippy, intimate, charmingly featherlight landmark HBO series of yore has been replaced by yet another bloated streaming-service grief-com, the latest piece of intellectual property back in zombie form to generate headlines, pique nostalgia and ultimately disappoint us. ... Less like urgent storytelling than panicked legacy-salvaging. In apologizing for its past wrongs, the show forgets to do what it did best.
I really don't get the low user score here. I'm a die hard fan of SATC. I grew up with these amazing ladies. I love the fact that the ladies have grown over the years and have gotten more complex, wiser and kinder. I mean, do we really want to see these ladies doing the things that they did in their 30s? And Just Like That is an amazing series. Period.
The show has the potential to be great, but it’s missing so much of the spark the original show had. The storylines are for the most part boring. I only watched it due to nostalgia from the original show but it disappointed me. Also, I get that SATC received a lot of scrutiny for not having enough diversity (which I agree with) but the diversity in AJLT seems SUPER forced and it’s annoying. Some of the new characters just don’t add anything to the plot and it seems like they only casted them because they added diversity to the show.
I did not want to hate this but you can't do this series without a certain someone, she's the whole show, and the yin to Carries' Yang.
Really it was hubris to try to make this without her. Just pure foolishness.
This series continues its downward surge - in the penultimate episode, the numbingly monotonous Kristin Davis is humiliated as she treis to get her daughter to become familiar with tampons, but the punchline of her own menstrual situation is about as appalling and pointless as writing can be. Ms. Parker is, as always, centred in her grief and confusion, while Miranda is freed from her previous life of rigid expectations and permitted an idiotic girl crush - and let's not forget that every episode feels the need to underline that Charlotte is married to a Jew - baking chala, preparing for her daughter's bat mitzvah, serving shabbat dinner - WTF!
Generally horrid, save for the expected haute fashion and interior design tutorial. The original was funny and relatable. The only thing relatable about this zombie is a weekly reminder that overly woke people are annoying and depressing.
