Anyone watching?

I'm totally loving it - women supporting women and no one being awful, but going through the ups and downs of 20-somethings in NYC. Beautiful clothes and people!

I'm not keen on all the sex as some of the lesbian scenes seem gratuitous and made for men but overall I love this show!

I tried this a few weeks ago, not generally my sort of thing at all.
Ended up bingeing all 4 seasons, thoroughly enjoyed it. I found the lack of bitchiness and their mutual support quite uplifting.

Yes it's like a younger, modern Sex and the City.

I think it's the lack of bitchiness that I love the most - there's no 'baddie' as such and everyone (including Jaclyn) is there to help and support one another and make the best possible magazine they can. Shit still happens but they love and support each other as best they can through things. Currently watching about Jane's mastectomy and Sutton's miscarriage - so good!

I liked it! Binged it all.

I didn't think i'd like it, but i ended up watching all of it very quickly! Really hope there's another season.

The fifth season is the last, and only 6 episodes
I think! It's airing in the US now, but not sure when it'll be available in UK.

I binge watched too and really enjoyed it! I was sad when I'd watched all of the episodes!

Oh no, that's too soon for me! Need another few seasons!

I’m watching this with my DD. Agree supportive women is great, gratuitous sex scenes not so much. Don’t get me started on the unlikely scene where a love egg gets stuck and rather than go to A&E/a nurse you get your friend to fish it out 🤢

I love this too. Especially Jaclyn who is THE best boss. I do think Jane tries to make a lot of things about her though. She started to grate on me in series 4

Oh FML I just clicked on this as have just started S2 and scrolled down to see massive spoilers! Thanks OP sad Maybe ask MNHQ to add SPOILERS to your title??

I loved it, even though I’m much older than their target audience I’m sure! It’s a great update to sex and the city.

I love it. I want Jaclyn's whole wardrobe. Although I'm sick of Kat's constant navel gazing, and if Sutton doesn't want Richard, I'll have him. And yes, I'm pretty sure I'm too old to be watching it.

I have binged it. And I’d be happy to have Richard as well smile

Agreed - I'll take Jaclyn's wardrobe and Richard as a partner and all will be well grin
