S.A.T.C. Anonymous

Hello. My name is Jody and I’m a Sex And The City-aholic.

I hadn’t even thought about indulging in the popular HBO endorsed extra-soft porn series directed at 30-something women until this summer. Maybe it was the hype around SATC’s recent feature-length movie. Maybe it was because I’d already binged on all the other HBO and Showtime series available at the library. Maybe I had just reached the time in my life when I needed to vicariously relive all my relationship blunders through forty-eight 23 minute episodes.

They say admitting you have an addiction is the first step on the road to recovery. I can do that. What I can’t do is watch one episode at a time. Watching only one episode from a series box set is like opening a bag of chips and eating one. Once I start watching a DVD I need to finish watching all the episodes on it; six episodes back to back. Almost 2.5 hours.

Which doesn’t sound that bad considering what I’m going to admit next: I watched the entire first season in one sitting.

Good thing it was only a twelve step program…um…I mean, twelve episode program.
