The media were abuzz in recent days with the final episode of HBO's Sex in the City. I didn't see the final episode. Fact is, I didn't see any of the earlier episodes - not a single one.
I read a couple reviews of the show early in its run. They gave me the impression that the program was about several young women and their various liaisons, their yearning search for fulfillment via uncommitted relationships. All the city is a bedroom and apparently the bedroom was the playroom for these females.
The women of Sex and the City wouldn't remind me of my mother, my wife or my daughter. They are hardly a role model for anyone but those who are determined not to learn from their mistakes and try to live by a Biblical moral code.
I suppose some folks will find it narrow-minded of me to criticize a program I didn't watch. Frankly, there are lots of destructive things in life that I don't need to try to know they are bad for me. A television program about sex is among them.
