Finally
It's not news per se since we've known about it for a long time but it's now official that Sarah Jessica Parker is returning to HBO Comedy series stardom withDivorce.SJP is fearless.Think of the way people treat Madonna.Once women are past a certain age people want them to disappear.Only the brave soldier on so I hope this series is brilliant and all best wishes her way.But can we talk about how rude it was forGothamistto illustrate the news of this series order by HBO with a photo of Sarah caressing her husband Matthew Broderick's face?

Re: On the bubble shows...I'm actually ok if Revenge ends this season....there's pretty much nowhere else for this story to go...Although I will miss Madeline Stowe dearly on my TV every Sunday night...I'd love to see her take on a comedic role next.

This is so true about SJP and Madonna.The way she is treated is depressing,and especially given that she never gets any credit for being one of the great actors of TV's Golden Age.Carrie Bradshaw is every bit as important as Walter White,Tony Soprano and Don Draper,but SATC's legacy continues to be swept under the rug.I remember a review in The Observer referring to her 'equine' face in a review of the second movie and I just though,'really?!' Even all those fashion articles that refer to her as wearing 'Carrie drag',like she's somehow too old for those outfits now,rankle.But since the movies haven't given her much (give or take a Family Stone) to do since the end of that legendary television show,I'm excited to see what's next for her.

ben1283-

Preach!!Spot on.I am 35 and Carrie Bradshaw is one of the most iconic,memorable,flawed,complicated characters of my generation ( for me anyway ).SJP must have some very thick skin to deflect all the pointless hate thrown her way.

bye haters :)

Right now my biggest fear is that you leave us to enter the dark world of pastry.

Re Peter Travers: "He gives the nicest reviews — he's such a cream puff,"gushes an indie exec."You can put him in all your ads — he gives quotes in advance."
That sounds about right.

April 17,2015 | Unregistered CommenterMike in Canada

Michael Patrick King is solely responsible for the dampening of Sex and the City for the public.Sure Sarah Jessica Parker wanted to leverage the brand into a film franchise to relaunch her film career,but even in the plentiful days of her film career she was never a box office draw.Sometimes TV offers performers a showcase vehicle that does not translate for other mediums nor new characters.

April 17,2015 | Unregistered Commenter3rtful

Travers is the worst kind of film critic: pandering,crass,superficial,and mistaking his own supposed wit,which is actually all tired prefab nonsense,as more significant than honest,clear-sighted analysis.He is the same one who wrote F YOU in a movie review to any naysayers.

Thank God for Nathaniel's site so I don't have to read hot-steaming drek like that.

How much would I love to see Imelda Staunton in Gypsy I can't even say!!With Streisand's long aborning version seemingly stalled,and love Babs though I do the time has passed when she would be a convincing mother to preteens,how great would it be to see her do it on screen.

April 17,2015 | Unregistered Commenterjoel6

That sissy list.No Richard Simmons,no Nathan Lane,no Aaron Schock,no Robert Downey Jr.,no Marcus Bachmann,no Elton John,no Carson Kressley............

April 17,2015 | Unregistered CommenterHenry

3rtful - totally agree about King.He was never the best writer but there was a huge drop in quality from the tv show to the movie,and especially from the 1st movie to the 2nd.If you watch interviews with him,he became way too full of himself.I wouldn't be surprised if he was surrounded by 'yes men' who never give him constructive feedback.He seems equally clueless when he talks about his work on 2 Broke Girls.

April 17,2015 | Unregistered CommenterDJDeeJay

FYI Reese W also made the Time 100

April 17,2015 | Unregistered CommenterLyndee

I envy those lucky theatre goers who get to see Imelda Staunton.After her immortal turn as the pink clad Dolores Umbridge,Mama Rose seems very appropriate.

Respect for Madonna & SJP - Absolutely!Sex and the City was a game changer in terms of attitudes and influences.

April 17,2015 | Unregistered CommenterLadyEdith

DJDeeJay: Of the 15 writers or writer teams on Sex and the City,how would you rank them?

April 17,2015 | Unregistered CommenterVolvagia

I think episodes centered on Miranda are the most sharply written because she's the least vapid character.Like Felicity Huffman on Desperate Housewives.

April 17,2015 | Unregistered Commenter3rtful

This might be an unpopular opinion,but I have to say that I find the Out Power 50 rather depressing with its overabundance of movie/TV stars.Andy Cohen as #10?Jane Lynch as #12?I love what Laverne Cox stands for,but her as the ninth most powerful LGBT person?It all says to me how few LGBT people have actual political or economic power.

April 18,2015 | Unregistered CommenterEvan

Volvagia - whoa,that is some next level fandom right there.I've seen the whole series but i don't know it well enough to rank the writing teams.
