On Sex and the Dystopia

@BattyRabbit Yeah, I see your point. I can't figure out if it is worse that the male anti-heroes are so outlandishly evil that we don't worry about the moral implications of their decisions, or if it is that we can more readily forgive them mortal sins when we can't forgive the ladies' consumerism. I'm going around with myself on this one, but I still love the show unashamedly (and while blocking the movies from my memory completely).

On Sex and the Dystopia

I've been wondering ever since I read Nussbaum's article whether what I see as SATC's main weakness - its horrible consumerism - can be excused. For culturally-lauded dramas like the Sopranos and Breaking Bad, we easily excuse the terrible killing and drug-dealing habits of the protagonists. No one wrings their hands over the influence the mafia or Mexican drug cartels may have over viewers of those shows. Could we possibly view the main characters' shopping additions and general acquisitiveness in the same way?

@slanket I know. I know. I wonder that too. The anticipation is killing me and I'm not even sure that GRRM (in his infinite, twisted wisdom) will see fit to give us an answer at the end.
