Sex in the City to end next year
HBO announced that their breakthrough, Emmy-winning comedy Sex in the City will end after its sixth season, with the series finale airing sometime in early 2004.
WFOoBH has obtained a synopsis of SITC's ultimate episode:
The Slutty One From Mannequin buys some shoes, sleeps with a man who buys her a nice necklace, and reveals that she has never had an orgasm because she's never learned to love. The Boring One From Melrose Place admits that she has been secretly engaged in a relationship with a woman and reveals that she has never had an orgasm because she has cared too much about her sexual partners. The One With The Red Hair And Who I Think Was Pregnant Or Something finds herself in desperate financial straits and sells her baby on eBay to save her Upper West Side apartment and her massive shoe collection, then takes in a fabulous male interior decorator as a live-in nanny. The One Whose Head Vaguely Resembles That Of A Horse, But In A Pretty Way, Really, decides that she will never find True Love, shaves her head, and sells the hair to an outrageous Madonna-impersonating drag queen in order to help The One With The Red Hair And Who I Think Was Pregnant Or Something save her baby from online auctioning -- but it's too little, too late. The baby's been bought and paid for by a mysterious stranger wearing one studded glove and a surgical mask. The four friends engage in a weepy, irony-tinged shopping spree, and we discover that the entire series has been nothing more than the dream of a slightly-autistic shoe salesman from the Manolo Blahnik store on Sixth Avenue.
So it goes.
