Can't Get Enough ...

The pose … Ilana style

The pose … Ilana style

Bingeing on Broad City — in denial that it's over — savoring every morsel during yesterday’s crap weather. In the last season, when juicy brilliant sexy Ilana squats a perfect Carrie pose — I was in sheer orgasmic joy to indulge in a Broads/Sex and the City comparison …  Let's get into it.

I loved Sex and the City — and this feels cringey given how it went so wrong in the last seasons. But early on Sex was a heady cocktail of glitzy FUN and a love letter to NYC when it was still grimy around the edges. But have we come a long way in 15 years …

Now, I need to somehow be BFFs and date Ilana and Abbi. I never felt that way about Carrie and crew. Sure, I vicariously enjoyed their glam brunches — but all that man-focused banter got stale. Even my girl Samantha became a cartoon — a wise-acre stalking vagina. Trust me, 15 years ago IRL, we talked about our big LIVES — plus dating, but often men were passing appetizers — exactly the way Broads uses them. Five seasons in, I NEVER got bored with the Broads' adventures of discovery — self, city, art, men, drugs. In Sex they were about jobs, boyfriends, and apartments.

In that last episode of Broads, when Ilana and Abbi walk forward for themselves, NOTHING to do with men, EVERYTHING to do with their badass friendship — and we pan to the women of New York — bopping along with their BFFs — well, I had a tissue fest goin’ on. I’m 30 plus years older than these two beautiful GBs, but THEY are who I relate to. Comparing that to the idiotic end of Sex, when they all “get their men”— and live happily ever after — I have no connection to that BS then or now. I am a Broad at heart — I love my women friends — we put each other first — and are sexy, funny and free — with or without men.

We can blame the 90’s for a lot of Sex and the City’s bizarre decisions and shitty last episodes, but did Sex’s man obsession have something to do with being created and produced by a man, Darren Starr (even with Sara’s input) versus created by two women, Abbi and Ilana, and produced by Amy Poehler? “I Can’t Help But Wonder” ...
