HBO Max And Just Like That has viewers jumping right back into the life of Carrie, Charolette, and Miranda. However, without the fourth amigo, Samantha, is just feels off. Check out the details of my parents guide review.
HBO Max And Just Like That dropped its first two episodes this week. The show is a long-awaited sequel to the hit show Sex in the City, and it reintroduces many of our favorite characters, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis. So much has changed since we last saw these saucy females, but friendships never go out of style. However, without bestie Samantha (Kim Cattrall), will this new series be able to achieve the same level of success? Check out the details in my parents guide review.

And Just Like That Parents Guide
The Max Original AND JUST LIKE THAT…, the new chapter of the groundbreaking HBO series “Sex and the City,” follows “Carrie” (Sarah Jessica Parker), “Miranda” (Cynthia Nixon) and “Charlotte” (Kristin Davis) as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.
And Just Like That Age Appropriate Parents Guide
Let’s take a look at what parents need to know before letting their kids watch HBO’s And Just Like That.
Language: And Just Like That contains strong language with profanity used throughout. Lookout words include: f*ck, sh*t, a**, p*&&y, wh*re, hell, and more.
Mature Content: Just like its predecessor, the new series contains a lot of talk about sex, anal sex, masturbation, teenagers having sex, and more. The characters are shown drinking alcohol and smoking pot. There is also a death of a character, which could be unsettling and trigger some viewers.
**Disclaimer: This parents guide review was written after viewing two episodes of the series.
HBO’s And Just Like That brings back the sassy and stylish females we grew to love many, many, many years ago. In some ways, it feels like the series hasn’t missed a beat since audiences last saw them in Sex in the City. In other ways, it feels like the world has drastically changed, and by all counts, it has. The series does a great job of addressing some of the craziest things the world has experienced and has included topics such as the pandemic and even cancel culture. Admittedly, it is a bit uncomfortable to see how out-of-touch these women are with the ever-changing climate. We see Carrie in a new podcast gig, and who would’ve thought a sex writer would be a bit shy about talking about sex? Or that the progressive women, who literally have two gay men as their besties, would be on the brink of getting cancelled? Twenty years ago, these women were examples of hip, trend-setting progressionists. Now they are older, a bit out of touch with this “younger” world, and as entertaining as it is to watch, it is also very relatable.
And Just Like That definitely feels a bit off without the fourth amigo, Samantha, who brought so much of the hilarious and inappropriate quips to the conversation. The absence of Samantha is dealt with very early on in the series, and given the awkward position the series was put in, it was done in the best way possible and it’s believable. While fans may not be too upset over Samantha not being a part of this series, I believe those feelings will quickly fade and be forgotten soon after the first episode, when more shocking events occur which will throw viewers off-balance. The first two episodes set the pace for the series, and that being the case, who knows what viewers are in store for. I wouldn’t be surprised if at some point Samantha makes an appearance after all of the hullabaloo in the press about her not being attached. Maybe it is just a pipe dream, but the series feels bereft without her, and although I will be anxiously awaiting the next installment there is still a pang of emptiness inside. Honestly, I don’t know how else they could have revisited this series after such a long time away without major changes, and for fans, it will be everything.
