Sex And The City Creator Says Series Finale Was A Betrayal

Not that they can’t. But the show initially was going off script from the romantic comedies that had come before it. That’s what had made women so attached. At the end, it became a conventional romantic comedy…. But unless you’re there to write every episode, you’re not going to get the ending you want.”
