Think you can ace this "Sex and the City quiz?" Prove it.
HBO sure struck it rich with this one (of course, HBO has a habit of picking winners, don't they?). "Sex and the City" ran for a total of six seasons and 90 episodes. During its run, the series invited women all over the world to question, explore, and have fun while Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) did the same for her weekly column on... well... sex and the city.
Bradshaw used her friends, Charlotte York (Kristen Davis), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) as inspiration and support. The show was based in part on a 1997 book of the same name by Candace Bushnell. Bushnell, like Bradshaw, wrote a racy weekly column for a newspaper and turned those columns into essays for her book. Bushnell went on to write other books, including Lipstick Jungle and The Carrie Diaries.
The show garnered dozens of awards, including seven Emmys, eight Golden Globes, and three SAG awards. Additionally, both TIME and Entertainment Weekly listed the show as one of the all-time best television shows. Overall, however, critical reception was not good, with critics claiming that the show was a bad influence on adolescents and that the character of Bradshaw was selfish and childish. Regardless, the show still retains millions of fans who catch reruns on a regular basis.
