Confession: Sex and the City is a show that I can still watch over and over…

I’d like think one of the main reasons why so many women continue to be attached to Sex and the City is because the general plotlines are all immediately identifiable, much as those of us hate to be identified with the ladies bopping around the city on the SATC bus tour.  As fun as the fluffy, consumerist angle of the show was, the heart of it lay with the friendship of the four women, and the life experiences we watched them go through week in and week out.  All six seasons reside happily in my media library, albeit a little battered (those cheap cases are all broken…durr).

And though the whole Aidan-Big-Carrie triangle makes Season 3 tough to watch, Charlotte planning her wedding adds a serious amount of comic relief:

(from “Running with Scissors”–specifically the first four minutes):

I love Mario Cantone.  I wish Anthony Marantino was here helping me plan this wedding.

Aside from making me giggle (c’mon, how great is it to watch Charlotte flip out over wedding dresses in bridal magazines?), the show has also given me some ideas inadvertently–specifically, the song I’d like playing during our cake-cutting.  It’s courtesy of Season 4’s “Ghost Town,” during the last, very sexy scene (it doesn’t appear here until two minutes into the clip–unfortunately the only clips available on YouTube are chunks of full episodes):

Aidan feeding Carrie cake?  Can enough be said on how freaking sensual this scene is?  The song in question?  Everlast’s “Love for Real” off of Eat at Whitey’s (which, sadly, is not availble on iTunes or Amazon.com MP3.  But you know what?  The song is so good that it’s worth getting the whole CD).

Has a televsision show–especially one that isn’t an obvious choice–sparked any ideas for you?
