Miranda Hobbes is a career-minded lawyer with extremely cynical views on relationships and men. As Harvard Law School is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts it is unlikely she yet lived in NYC three hours away, unless she was simply in New York at the time and was friends with Carrie during her last year of college. It is more likely a mistake of the writing.
While Sex and the City has been off the air for over a decade now — man, time flies! With Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis starring as four single friends in their early 30s trying to navigate life and love in New York City, the series was a hilarious and sometimes hilariously awkward honest portrait of what life is like for many unmarried women, and women around the world fell in love with it. The Sex and the City girls each had their own distinct personalities, and chances are you related to one more than others.
Skip navigation! Story from TV Shows. June marks the 20th anniversary of Sex and the Citya revolutionary show about four women talking frankly about sex and their desires in New York.
Brusque, candid, and sardonic, the show made even the most hardened viewers laugh. Every one of the four main characters had their own unique sense of humor. Then there's Miranda, the red-headed embodiment of self-deprecating wit. In Season 3's "Frenemies," Miranda calls Carrie after her date stands her up.
Cynthia Nixon will not be the governor of New York after she failed to become elected as the Democrat candidate. Nixon, who before turning her attention to politics was best known for playing the powerful lawyer Miranda Hobbes in Sex and the Citygained 35 per cent of votes in the Democratic primary on 13 September. This was in contrast to the current governor, Andrew Cuomo, who gained 65 per cent of the vote after 93 per cent precincts had reported their results, the BBC reports.
Today marks the 20 years to the day that Sex and the City first aired on our screens. In many ways it was ground-breaking — funny, clever and emotionally honest with a frank and warm look at female friendship, sex and single life. But as time has gone on, it's no longer the easy watching it once was.
Living… in Manhattan in a beautiful prewar apartment on the Upper East Side. She was excited about buying the apartment on her own. Profession… corporate lawyer.
Carrie had her shoe collection, Charlotte her sickly sweet style, and Samantha her sensual slips. Miranda Hobbes may not traditionally come to mind when you think of fashion icons. Her refusal to follow trends may not have made her the most fashion-forward of her friendship group, but her understanding of who she was and what she liked to wear made her admirable to me when watching the show for the first time.
It is widely known that although Sex and the City is a beloved including by me! To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Sex and the City movie, I revisited the fashionable universe containing bottomless cosmopolitans, enough handsome and eligible bachelors to guarantee a lay every other night, and very few people of color. I rediscovered puns that wormed their way permanently into my memory, absurd comedy gags, and a cast of shallow, entitled characters with no moral compasses.
Growing up with Sex and the City on constant rotation in the background of my life, I'm avidly aware that when it comes to picking which character you are on the show, I've always been classed as a Carrie. Of course, I'll always have a soft spot for Bradshaw and sympathise with the fact that she'd rather spend her rent money on shoes, but watching reruns of the series in the year makes me cringe at how much she focuses on dating, relationships and Mr Big. As Miranda Hobbes so eloquently put it, "All we talk about anymore is Big or balls or small dicks. How does it happen that four such smart women have nothing to talk about but boyfriends?
