Episode One: take me out to the ballgame
Carrie rebounds from her relationship with Mr. Big with “Joe,” the new Yankee, up from the minors. The new Yankee is my favorite of all single-episode boyfriends, although he doesn’t talk much. I just like the idea of one New York icon dating another and their photo ending up on Page Six.
Also in this episode we learn that Carrie has been dating for ten years in Manhattan, and that she was there before Big (“If Big had any class, he would have moved away. I was here first”). Wonder where he was before that. Sidenote: Chris Noth’s current picture on imdb.com is disturbing.
Behold, the introduction of the coffee shop, “our Saturday morning ritual.”
