Sex and the City was one of the most successful shows on television during the ’90s and early 2000s. Even though it’s been off the air for over 10 years, it still grows in popularity. The HBO American romantic comedy spun from a novel by Candace Bushnell was on the air from 1998 to 2004 and created mega-stars out of the four leading actresses, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon. As the first of its kind, SATC pushed the boundaries of television by covering racy or controversial topics as it followed the lives of four successful women living in New York City and their various relationships with men while looking for ‘the one.’ Viewers saw a lot of relationships come and go over the course of six seasons so we’ve decided to take a look at all the couples who have come and gone throughout the series and rank them from worst to best. It’s impossible to cover them all, but here are the 15 most popular!
15. Carrie and Berger
After all the bickering played out between these two on-screen, it’s hard to remember how Jack Berger and Carrie fell in love. Carrie met Berger during season 5 after she was reeling from her second break up with Aiden. At first he seemed like just what she needed — he had a great sense of humor, was a writer and their witty banter back and forth was pretty cute. But Berger and Carrie land as the worst couple on this list because they only seemed happy for about a hot second. Once things started getting serious between them, it was one problem after another with these two. First they couldn’t seem to connect in the bedroom; red flags came up when he showed abnormally harsh feelings towards his ex-girlfriend; then Carrie couldn’t get used to sleeping around his sound machine. It was just one thing after another. It all came to a head when Carrie started experiencing success while Jack’s book deal got dropped. He became really whiny and couldn’t seem to be happy for Carrie. All in all, we can’t think of one good reason why these two got together in the first place. We’re sorry, we can’t. Don’t hate us.© HBO / Courtesy: Everett Collection
