"Russian Doll is probably the most affecting show I watched over the last year. It's brilliant and I love it - but as you say, its format and its tone is not at all friendly to it winning this. I" - ScottC

Is There Still Sex in the City? You Tell Us! 

By Spencer Coile 

Just when you thought the Kim Cattrall v. Sarah Jessica Parker feud would result in a discontinuing of the Sex and the City cinematic universe, Paramount Television and Anonymous Content swooped in to acquire the rights to Candace Bushnell’s Is There Still Sex in the City? A follow-up to her previous 1996 book, Bushnell – who will write the pilot and serve as executive producer – asks a new age question: how sexual can women in their 50’s and 60’s be? She adds:

I’m thrilled to be reflecting the rich complexity of their reality on the page and now on the screen.

Is There Still Sex in the City is set to premiere on August 6, 2019. And because we won’t be seeing the return of Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda, I couldn’t help but wonder: will this reincarnation into the Sex and the City-verse be as successful as its predecessor?

The Gay Heart of "The Family Stone" 

Members of Team Experience have been asked to share their favorite holiday film. Here's Spencer Coile with his...

I vividly remember the trailer for The Family Stone when it first came out in 2005. I was thirteen, a recent film and Oscar snob, and still incredibly naïve. I was swept into the two-and-a-half-minute long saga of uptight Meredith (Sarah Jessica Parker) visiting her boyfriend Everett’s (Dermot Mulroney) family for their first Christmas together and the family’s cliquey antics. Add on a stellar cast and the Maxine Nightingale classic, “Right Back Where We Started From,” and I was hooked. I couldn’t possibly wait until December to see it. 

And I didn’t. I waited even longer, months after it was released...

Celebrating 10 Years of "Sex and the City: The Movie" 

By Spencer Coile 

I remember being 15-years-old, sitting in an empty theater on the opening night of Sex and the City -- precisely 10 years agoI had just finished watching the series for the first time, and was ready to continue on with the stories of Carrie, Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte. The tagline for the film was “Get Carried Away,” and I absolutely did. It was so easy to slip back into this dream-like, romanticized version of Manhattan – where money is endless, where relationships come and go, but friendship (and shoes) are forever. 

Was the movie adaptation perfect? Absolutely not. Was the sequel unnecessary and borderline insensitive? Completely. Still, that first film left me beaming from ear-to-ear. It’d be easy to pick out all the problems with the plot, the length, the way it treats Jennifer Hudson’s character (there’s no way her email password was seriously “love”). But even watching it today, I go back to when I was 15; feeling hopeful, giddy, and gay. Those are the movies that stick with you.  

Happy Birthday, Sex and the City! But most importantly: do you identify as a Carrie, a Miranda, a Samantha, or a Charlotte?

Hidden Streaming Gem: "Miami Rhapsody" 

Hello! Robert here. The other night as I was enjoying my long Fourth of July weekend I was in the mood for a movie; something I hadn't seen, something light and funny, something for a summer night on the couch with a bottle of rosé. After clicking around on HBONow for a few minutes boy did I ever find what I was looking for: a gem of a '90s pseudo-intellectual rom-com called Miami Rhapsody. Won't you take a journey back in time with me and explore this strange little film?
