There were so many good episodes of “Sex and the City,” which makes writing this list particularly hard. The first four seasons were absolutely amazing. The writing and the acting were superb and the fashion was just fantastic. There was a bit of lull in season five, but season six definitely tried to give us what we really came to love in the first four seasons. Since we’re really missing “Sex and the City” right about now, we figured that we’d take the opportunity to go through some of the show’s most memorable episodes. Here are our top 10 choices!

10. “Hot Child in the City” S3, E15

“Hot Child in the City” is one of the funniest episodes in the series. Samantha becomes super jealous of a tween; Miranda gets braces; and Carrie starts dating a guy who still lives at home. One of the final scenes when Carrie’s romantic interest blames her for bringing pot into his parent’s house is absolutely priceless. She admits fault and then walks out with his bag of pot.


9. “One” S6, E12

“One” is Miranda’s episode. After pining for Steve for several episodes, she finally tells him how she feels at their son’s first birthday party.
