Storyline

Three of the girls wrestle with the delicate question of what to tell or discreetly leave unmentioned with loved ones. For Miranda, this means overcoming her aversion to explicit encouragement and dirty talk in bed; Carrie's blabbermouth causes a friend to divorce, then she invites Mr. Big to her birthday party; Samantha finally tells her sweet lover, after he talked her into couples counseling (which she hates), that she finds his manhood too small. Meanwhile, Charlotte tries a pedigree dog as a temporary substitute for the unfindable perfect fiancé. All find out the downsides of their choices. Written by KGF Vissers

Kind of horrifying
15 September 2016 | by michaeltoomey_2005See all my reviews

Watching this episode, I was somewhat horrified by the rampant misogyny on display, particularly the idea that was reinforced throughout the story of the relationship between Susan Sharon and Richard that it's better to be in a horrific, abusive relationship than to be single. What is worse is the callous disregard that Susan Sharon's "friend" Carrie displays towards this, as if the idea that if by turning to her supposed friend for help that she is placing an unfair burden on her...I mean, if you can't turn to your friends for support when your husband is preventing you from leaving the house, then what is the point of those friends?
