Columnist Carrie Bradshaw introduces her narrative style by a short story about a British girl who thought the Manhattan manner would be the same. Characters and extras on screen do some of the philosophizing about modern sex life and the life of both sexes she usually does off-screen in her column-style. Among the main cast of four best friends, PR executive Samantha bluntly stands for sex without relational crap, golden spoon-WASP Charlotte for the fairy tale-romantic ideal, while sensitive flirt Carrie herself and stuck-up pragmatic lawyer Miranda seek a middle way; meanwhile gay talent agent Stanford Blatch provides a twisted mirror image. Carrie enjoys using hunk Kurt just for her sexual gratification for a change, then the quartet jumps on the dating game carousel, which never stops in the series.
