On December 9, after 11 long years since the last movie, hordes of people of all ages tuned into the premiere of And Just Like That…, HBO’s reboot of the iconic Sex and the City series. It was the platform’s biggest-ever debut for a series, and yet many, myself included, were left angry, disappointed or lukewarm at best.
