Your Complete Guide to Binge-Watching 'Sex and the City'

How to Watch

HBO GO, Amazon Prime and good ol’ DVD box set

Reason to Watch 

Because it is the best show in the history of the world? Literally, no other reason than it will make you laugh, cry, scream and live life to the fullest. Oh, and don’t forget the major fashion inspo you will get.

Suggested Rate of Watching

One season per week. If you try and binge-watch this show too fast, you are going to catch a really bad case of envy. Seriously. Symptoms are: dressing like you're in 2002, writing school essays in Carrie Bradshaw’s voice and searching for flights to NYC in your spare time. This is not a bug you want to catch. Or do you?

You Will Like This Show if You Like…
