Just what we need - sex with 70yr old obachans

It was pretty bad the first time around. It'll be hard to top it.

Night of the living dead more like

Kim Cattrall cannot stand Sarah Jessica Parker and she has been saying no to a reunion for years now. The wife will be happy to hear about the reboot but I can skip it.

This show has ruined so many young women's lives, it's an awful example for women if how to live their lives. They hit late 30's realise suddenly that the chances of finding a trustworthy loving partner is gone along with any hopes of kids and a family. Then loneliness in old age awaits. Sad.

Yes! That's exactly what we need. There are plenty of older women who still want companionship and physical intimacy. It's not just older men. Your comment is not just sexist but ageist and as far as that goes, the oldest among the three who'll be on the show is 55, so a fair ways yet from 70.

If that's what you think, then you really don't think much of women. I know plenty of women who watched and enjoyed the show and not one who wasn't able to separate it from reality or had it ruin their lives. Do men have this problem when enjoying television programs?

A sad program so sad women who watched it. Will be even sadder for even sadder women who will watch it. If people's lives are so empty that they watch this trash to fill up some of the mostly empty space between their ears, then corona is the least of our problems

Oh Happy Day!

We’re SAVED ! Life can go on again.

Disgusting show that helped ruin a generation of women.

3 ( +13 / -10 )

Not my thing but I doubt that it ruined anyone's lives. Some people do get triggered easily.

And btw, what is that grey speckled fluffy mess at the top left of the photo? Is that thing sitting on top of somebody's head?

3 ( +7 / -4 )

Eww! NO!

Kim Cattrall was the main reason I watched it.

Really ? There have been studies or something ?

No one wants to see 60 years olds trying to be 20... no one wants this TV show

8 ( +12 / -4 )

Still, could it be any worse that it was the first time?

@Eppee

Yes, check out that stats.

New York City has more than 300,000 more single women between the age of 45-64 than men. It's a graveyard for over the hill ladies unfortunately.

Awful. Awful Awful.

That's why there's astroglide. I can't wait to see it! Will Carrie finally land Mr. Big now that she is pushing 50??? I say YES!

They look well beyond Jukujo, but never heard of the program let alone see an episode. Were they young in the first run? What City? The only place we ever called The City was NY.

And this is attributed to this show ?!

Lol. Will this be considered geriatric soft porn?

Reboot needs to be called menopause in the city

Gonna be a hit in China

https://www.vice.com/en/article/jgxa7k/sex-and-the-city-china-feminism-career-left-over-women

In China, Fans of ‘Sex and the City’ Would Rather Be Miranda Than Carrie - 'Sex and the City' continues to have a cult following in China and Miranda, a financially independent, Ivy League-educated lawyer, is an icon to women who are still expected to give up their careers and marry before 30.

If the re-boot is realistic there should be a LOT of cats in the new show LOL!!

And the line, ""where have all the good men gone"" should figure prominently :)

Can’t wait for the incontinence episode lol

Kim Cattrall’s got the right idea. I never got the appeal of SATC, all the characters were awful people, Carrie Bradshaw was the most appalling person ; self centred, crass, dishonest, reckless, selfish, fickle, disloyal, and we were supposed to admire her. Yuck.

Slags in the city.

When they were young(er) I found them trite and simplistic. Now that they’re old,.... just pathetic.

The only one I ever respected as a strong woman was Samantha. Now THAT is a woman.

grandmas get wild and cRazy in NYC BE NEW TITLE

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

I'm not sure why so many men are bashing Sex in the City and saying it ruined a generation of women. Is it possible that these men only feel confident around demure, passive women and that successful and confident women make them lose their ... ahem ... mojo?

Another reboot of another vapid TV show, this one from an ugly period in entertainment. The late 90s - 00s decade period sucked in SOOOOOO many ways? Who te hell wants to remember, relive or revive all this trash? We've had a Spice Girls 'reunion', will there be a 'Touched By An Angel' reboot too?

No!

No, no, no!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HELL, NO!!!!!

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

And for that matter, is an 'Ally McBeal' reboot in the works, too?

Time to destroy the TV, just like Elvis used to do. BANG!

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Wow! It’s totally okay when older men are seeing as being sexually active on tv shows but heaven forbid women in their 50s be depicted as such. I get it if the show isn’t to your taste and you don’t care for reboots but the vitriol being directed towards middle-aged women, on a fictitious tv show, is pretty pathetic and rather telling about those who seem so worked up about it. Really, just don’t watch it if it’s that triggering for you.
