Sex and the City

The big journey - S5-E7

Audio problem: When Samantha and Carrie are in their room on the train, Samantha starts to pour herself a glass of champagne. We hear it pouring for a few seconds until it sounds like the glass is full but when she puts the bottle down, there's barely anything in her glass.

Sex and another city - S3-E14

Audio problem: When Charlotte is talking to a man at the Playboy Mansion, the camera is on her and in the middle of her line cuts to him, while you still see her in the left corner. Though her line continues, she's not moving her lips.

No ifs, ands or butts - S3-E5

Audio problem: Carrie tips her cigarettes into the toilet and flushes it. The shot is looking into the bowl when we hear the flush, but the water doesn't move.

Baby, talk is cheap - S4-E6

Audio problem: After Carrie returns from dinner, she is using the computer when suddenly Aiden ("AidenNYC") is shown logging onto her AOL Buddy List (upper right of her computer screen). But for some reason, the show uses an 'IM Chime' sound. When someone logs onto their computer and appears on your Buddy List, it makes a different noise (usually a door-opening sound). The 'IM Chime' sound only happens when someone actually sends you an Instant Message. In this case, Aiden had not IMed Carrie. There was no IM on her screen, and he only appeared on her Buddy List. (00:18:40)

Suggested correction: The sounds for logging on or IM'ing can be changed under the settings.

Because Carrie was brand new to the Internet, she had very little knowledge of how it works. She would not be advanced enough to know about IM settings, or how to change them. (This is clear when she humorously tries to 'hide' from Aiden's IM on screen, thinking he could see her physically). And it isn't likely that she would have changed the settings if she was just starting to use the Internet and had little experience with it. They used the wrong sound on camera.

Easy come, easy go - S3-E9

Audio problem: Sam asks the waiter how long does the wheatgrass take to work into one's system, but the last sentences are played with a side shot of her where she's not mouthing the lines.

Just say yes - S4-E12

Audio problem: After Carrie and Miranda are served their drinks and the credits roll, they have small talk about flying to Rio but their lips are not moving or are not in sync.

An american girl in paris (part une) - S6-E19

Audio problem: When Big calls Carrie and is leaving a message after Carrie has long since moved to Paris, Charlotte is there. She picks up the phone and says "Hi, it's Charlotte", but her mouth does not match the words. Her mouth says something like "Hey" not "Hi".

Games people play - S2-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Carrie is sitting at the table writing on her laptop after her trip with the girls to the sports bar, the camera comes round and you can see her TV. You can see a boom mic reflecting on the TV screen, and another camera.

Twenty-something girls vs. thirty-something women - S2-E17

Question: I have a somewhat odd question for everyone that watches Sex and the city. I got into the show about 2 or 3 years after it started running but I remember watching the episode "Twenty-something girls vs. thirty-something women" which was the episode about Carrie and the girls going to the Hamptons and renting a house. Charlotte dates a younger guy that gives her crabs. There is commentary about comparing 20 year girls to 30 year old women and when I watched this episode originally I swear there was a different ending then what is what is shown now. I want to know if anyone else has seen this or am I absolutely insane. In the episode there is a girl that pukes on the beach - her friend holds her hair back and Carrie makes a commentary about "counting on 20 year old girls to hold your hair back." Later when Carrie sees Big with Natasha she runs to the beach and Miranda runs after her. Carrie throws up because she is upset and Miranda holds her hair back, but the version I saw changes the commentary/narration and says that you can "always count on a 30 something year old friend to hold your hair back." I haven't seen that version again. Has anyone else seen it or did I just dream this, because I swear I remember watching this when it first came out?

Weeny Post

Answer: I'm a long-time fan of the show, having re-watched it many times, and I definitely remember slightly different dialogue at the end of that episode than what's on my DVD. I'm afraid I have no idea why this change might have been made or any other info, but you're not insane.
