Shortcomings

Shortcomings

It's June 6, 1998. The number one movie in the United States is 'The Truman Show.' NBC ruled television, with 'Friends,' 'E.R.', and 'Seinfeld' dominating the ratings. Brandy and Monica were on top of the music charts, and, oh, and 'Sex and the City' aired its first episode. Welcome to The Dipp's 'Shortcomings,' a new 'Sex and the City' podcast from Sam Bush (aka @bravohistorian) and Chris Lewis. They're going all-in on our problematic fave — the memories, the men, the fashion, and, of course, Aidan's obsession with KFC. Sam and Chris will recap all 92 episodes of the series, two movies, and whatever the revival is. So grab a cosmo and join Sam and Chris in taking a critical eye to a show that changed television.

Sam and Chris take on the Season 2 premiere and there’s a lot to discuss. But before they do that, they answer a burning question: what exactly is a dizzy Carrie? They count down her top five dizziest moments, and then ask themselves...does Carrie know what a baseball is? What is going on with Miranda? And what are the rules of breaking up?

We’ll be back next week recapping season 2, episode 2, The Awful Truth. Until then, you can ...

Sam and Chris take on the season one finale and it’s a big one. Is religion the only reason to shower after sex? How small is too small and why is Kim Catrall just the best? And Chris couldn’t help but wonder...should we be seeing this show through Big’s eyes? They also look back on an awkward start to their favorite show with a season 1 roundup.

Sam and Chris are joined by Bairam Rizai to chat about the upcoming SATC revival, being the man behind the icon in a viral moment, and how extra works (spoiler alert: it’s brutal out here).

And then they go all-in on perhaps the first great episode of the show--Miranda continues to be an athleisure queen and very problematic, we see Charlotte’s entire arc in one quick flashback, Samantha does nothing (again!), and Carrie has the fi...

What’s this? A preview! Sam and Chris take a trip to the Valley and never want to go again! We discuss how Carrie is simply not COVID safe as she touches tongues in a crowded bar, the simple fact that we are here for Mr. Big, and the first time our four icons turned in an iconic group scene.
