One movie down, one to go! This week we finish our first journey into the dubiously canon Sex and the City film franchise, and not much has improved since last week. This time we at least get to reflect on the movie as a whole and why it fails in so many different ways. Despite all that, we will forever stan Charlotte for her ability to scream at Big.

Welcome to the Sex and the City cinematic universe! It's movie time and uh. Oops! We had to split this in two. This week we're covering the first half of the first Sex and the City movie, which is actually the second time this movie has been discussed on a Noisespace podcast. Anyway someone decided that BOTH SATC movies should be 2.5 christian hours long so you should be proud of us for covering them.
SERIES FINALE BAYBEEEE!!! We made it! Barring the movies, that is. This week we're covering Season 6 Episode 20, An American Girl in Paris (Part Deux). We finally get to learn how it all ends for Carrie and the gals, and we reflect on what's changed since the beginning. And of course, what (who) has stayed exactly the same.
And lo, as the sun sets across the horizon, a chill shivers down your spine - you know, undoubtedly, that Schlocktober has descended upon you yet again, and there is nothing you can do to impede its ceaseless march. For you're fully aware that any attempt to do so would be an extreme breach of the terms of service. Y'know, like an app? Like in the movie Countdown, where there's an app that kills you? We had the Noisespace king Matt (@mattgcn) and queen Stephanie (@ageofoddish) on to talk about the movie whose elevator pitch was certainly nothing more than…
We're covering part one of the series finale this week: An American Girl in Paris (Part Une). And guess what, we're actually happy to see Big for the first time in our entire lives! Especially because he gets yelled at and stared at menacingly, but also because he's had some "growth" I GUESS. So buckle in, eat some ass, and get ready to find out how men continue to disappoint Carrie even in Paris!
This week we cover an absolutely iconique episode of Sex and the City, season 6 episode 18: Splat! In the third-to-last episode of the series, Carrie faces the big decision of whether or not she should leave New York and move to Paris with Petrovsky. We also get what is I think??? our first on-screen death??? Sadly it's not Carrie or Big though. Other topics of discussion this week: Quebec, our inexperience with Taco Bell, and snuff (the tobacco product, not the media).
This week we're on season 6 episode 17, The Cold War. Yes, they did think that was a clever episode title just because Carrie is dating a Russian and for really no other reason. Yes, we hate it. We also... once again get extremely lost in the weeds about Game of Thrones because we're just tired of where the plot of SATC is at this point and it's fun to be mad.
Stephanie from City Girls Make Do joins us again to talk about the much-maligned Make Believe by Weezer. Rivers Cuomo's side project is Incel and the Troubled Relationship. There's a surprising amount of discussion about Shrek in this one too. David | Matt | Stephanie Tuning Fork
Well we're now at season 6 episode 16, Out of the Frying Pan, which means we're getting dangerously close to finishing all the episodes. Miranda's looking at a bigger place in gasp Brooklyn, Charlotte gets a new family member, and everyone is bald (including us).
It's hard to believe that they can make filler episodes this late into the series, but they sure did that with season 6 episode 15: Catch-38. At least, it was to us, because even if they're real conflicts they're extremely contrived. ANYWAY because we wanted to avoid talking about the actual episode, please enjoy listening to us talk about Rugrats instead!
