Tv Season Info

Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), who lost Big (Chris Noth) to a wife (Bridget Moynahan) 10 years younger and several inches taller than she, finds love with furniture designer and all-around nice guy Aidan (John Corbett) in the comedy's third season.The romantic humor helped nab "Sex and the City" an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series---the first such honor for a cable series in any category. Unfortunately, Carrie also has her share of drama, jeopardizing her relationship with Aidan by having an affair with Big. Hoping to put this squandered opportunity with Aidan behind her, Carrie takes off for Los Angeles to explore the prospect of turning her columns into a movie. The trip includes a meeting with Matthew McConaughey and, with her friends in tow, a visit to the Playboy mansion. Back in the Big Apple, Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) hires a judgmental maid (Lynn Cohen) and takes a stab at cohabitation with her on-again, off-again boyfriend Steve (David Eigenberg). Samantha (Kim Cattrall) fulfills her firefighter fantasy, meets her idol Hugh Hefner and clashes with the transsexual prostitutes in her new neighborhood. And wedding bells are in the air for Charlotte (Kristin Davis), who finally discovers her Prince Charming in blue-blooded, Park Avenue doctor Trey (Kyle MacLachlan), but her dreams of a fairy-tale romance don't come with the happy ending she imagined. Series 3 guest stars include John Slattery, Bobby Cannavale, Mario Cantone, Alanis Morissette, Frances Sternhagen, Carrie Fisher, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Vince Vaughn.

Critic Reviews for Sex and the City Season 3

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

As we've come to understand over the show's first two seasons, they all are fully conscious of something missing from their personal lives - duh, it's l-o-v-e - which makes them at least sympathetic, if not entirely endearing.

There's room for fun, meaningless entertainment on TV, but sex talk alone won't make me tune to "Sex and the City" on a weekly basis.

Expect some of the tightest writing, expert acting and mature sensibilities on TV.

Apr 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Watching this season again, it struck me as the show's magical realism season, with odd tonal veers, like the bizarrely cartoonish "Freak Show" episode and a dubious "cameo" by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Bottom Line: Still a pretty hot date.

Darren Star: The man has mastered the difficult trick of crafting mass entertainment from the quivering concerns of a highly specialized demographic.
