HBO has confirmed a new limited series of Sex and the City and the long and nuanced story of Sarah Jessica Parker’s feud with Kim Cattrall is hitting headlines yet again, it’s as though it’s 1998 again. So, in the name of nostalgia, here is the most hated episode of Sex and the City according to official IMDb rankings. It might surprise you.
The series ran for 94 episodes from 1998 to 2004 plus two (not wildly well received) films in 2008 and 2010, and since HBO confirmed a reboot of the much-loved series earlier this week fans have been speculating about everything from storylines to cast, as well as reminiscing about the original series. But there’s one episode they may not have particularly fond memories of; episode three of series four, Defining Moments, which is the worst-ranked episode of the entire series according to IMDb.
The episode centres mainly around Carrie meeting a Jazz musician called Ray King while out on a ‘non-date’ with Mr Big. Meanwhile, Miranda dates a man called Doug who likes to leave the toilet door open, Samantha’s budding relationship with Maria begins to develop into something romantic, and Charlotte tries to deal with her new husband Trey who insists on only having sex in public.
The episode is rated 7.1 on IMDb, compared to a series average of 7.6, owing mainly to the fact that it’s slightly forgettable; and with public weeing and phrases like “non-date”, who can blame you?
Meanwhile with a score of 8.8 the best rated episode of the show is unsurprisingly the finale, An American Girl in Paris: Part Deux, in which Carrie and Mr Big finally get together for good. Shout out to all the Aidan fans out there rolling their eyes right now.
