Mike Jensen has seen the Sex and the City series many times. Elise Castle has never seen a single episode. "We Couldn't Help But Wonder" what would happen if these two went on an episode by episode journey through the whole series. Join us as Mike watches for the (insert embarrassing number here) time and Elise is watching for the very first. We will discuss how the series holds up almost 20 years later, our own experiences living in NYC, and the debate over too much cranberry juice in the Cosmopolitan.
S11 Ep12: Documentary and Season Recap!
50:13Elise and Mike talk about the HBO Max documentary as well as the (first? only?) season of And Just Like That... to talk about behind the scenes antics, costumes, so many shoes, major hat drama, and to wonder why no one should wear pink. They also clear up a few things about the series, and answer some questions. And just like that, its the end of an era... (?)
S11 Ep11: Seeing The Light
49:06It's the finale of season one of And Just Like That... (we're being optimistic) Miranda gets some new information from Che. Charlotte works hard to plan the perfect day for Rock. Nya and Andre are taking some time apart. Seema can't seem(a) to complete a phone conversation with Carrie. And Carrie thinks she's getting a message from the other side through her lamp. Plus, the diner! And a very surprising (or is it?) encounter on an elevator...
S11 Ep10: No Strings Attached
45:04Carrie prepares for a do-over with the teacher but can't bring herself to take her wedding ring off. Miranda and Che's relationship is going better than expected, but still hits a few snags. Charlotte is dealing with developments involving her children. And at a shelter in Brooklynn, worlds collide as our core ladies new friends meet, and Nya and Andre continue to struggle with what to do about kids.
S11 Ep9: Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered
46:34After coming clean to Che about her marriage, Miranda has to decide how and what to tell Steve. Charlotte and Lily clash over an online post. And as Carrie takes stock of her past (mostly her clothes), she also begins to learn more about the mysterious and cool new neighbor who lives on the first floor.
S11 Ep8: Sex And The Widow
56:57Carrie has a new book, and her editor loves it but wonders if there can't be a glimmer of hope. Meanwhile, Nya is having a hard time telling Andre that she's not pregnant, Charlotte invites Harry to play tennis and maybe regrets it, Miranda continues to pine over Che even while trying to jump start things at home, and Lisa struggles at a school function. And Carrie goes on a date, that goes extremely well, then horrifically awful, but ultimately, maybe, hopeful...
S11 Ep7: Diwali
55:11After discussing the proper pronunciation of this episode, Elise and Mike get into the details. Carrie is apartment shopping and then apartment buying, apartment disliking, and eventually apartment selling. Charlotte tries to deal with her ever changing daughters. Anthony brings Carrie with him to visit the least pushy plastic surgeon ever (or is he?). Miranda is... being a bit obsessive about one activity in particular. Ultimately Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte have a picnic to remember, and Carrie gets a glimpse of Seema's family and culture.
S11 Ep6: Tragically Hip
55:46After a conversation with Seema (and an orthopedic surgeon) Carrie undergoes hip surgery, and as Charlotte and Miranda join forces to help her recover, Carrie revisits memories of Samantha, Charlotte and Harry try to keep up with their child's self identity, and Miranda continues down a path that could change everything.

56:48Mike is back in New York City and he and Elise are back on the podcast. Carrie makes a big decision and finds herself a real estate broker. Charlotte tries to throw a dinner party for her new friend Lisa only to discover how "vanilla" her circle of friends is. Miranda has a heart to heart with her law professor. And both Carrie and Anthony get surprise messages from Stanford.
S11 Ep4: When In Rome
49:18In the aftermath of tragedy, Carrie makes a startling discovery that sets her off on a mission. One of Charlotte's children shares a personal piece of information. Che is taping a comedy special. Miranda starts seeking change in the most surprising of places. And yet another face from the past comes back for a visit!
S11 Ep3: Little Black Dress
53:40In the wake of tragedy, Carrie starts preparing for her next steps as pretty much everyone else makes it about them. Miranda continues to misstep (Learn? Grow?) in her education. Charlotte continues to cry. Che clashes with Carrie's "ride or die." Stanford continues to behave in strange and somewhat unexplainable ways. And an unexpected guest makes a surprise "appearance." Actually, a couple do.
