CleoCaesar October 20, 2014 Share October 20, 2014 I just hated the these people had all of New York and all they did was dress up and eat. Nobody saw a play or went to a concert or a museum or a library. I agree. I live in NYC and even though I consider myself a homebody, I do my best to discover new museums and plays, and just get to find interesting places and activities in the city. What's the point of living here if you don't take advantage of it at least once in a while? It's not like Carrie was burdened with some high-stress, 60-hour-a-week job. To her the superficial image of New York - cultured, beautiful, powerful - was more important than the actual city, it seemed. Same goes, on a smaller scale, for Carrie's relationship with Paris - she spends years romanticizing it and then when she actually moves there, she gets bored in literally two weeks. And actually tells Miranda on the phone that she's "been to every museum, twice". AAAARGH you are in Paris! That's not only impossible, it is just insulting and stupid. If the show had actually explored this idea - that Carrie was not in fact the quintessential cultured New Yorker, and that it was just as much a costume as any of her ridiculous outfits - it might have given Carrie some additional depth as a character. 2 Link to comment
