SEX AND THE CITY
Before Gossip Girl, there was simply Sex and the City (SATC). Ranked by Rolling Stone as one of the greatest TV shows of all time, HBO's hit series SATC centres around the love lives of four women in New York. Carrie, a freelance sex columnist for Vogue, along with Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda reveal all - and we mean all. Fun, fashion-filled and oh, so fabulous - you won't want to miss a single cocktail.

This long-running show is one juicy drama, boasting a hilarious dark sense of humour and melodramatic antics, almost impossible to not binge.
