And Just Like That: How Aidan Shaw's return could save Sex and the City's legacy
Let's face facts, the revival show wasn't particularly well-received among loyal SATC fans.
And while the first few episodes for AJLT seemed promising, the show lost its footing towards the middle and end of the first season due to poorly written storylines that were cheesy and honestly offensive to the original series.
That's why some were surprised that the show even got picked up for season two.
But all may not be lost, as John Corbett's return could just be the infusion of SATC legacy that the really needs.
Will Aidan Shaw bring that SATC sparkle?
For those faithful who were #TeamAiden since season three of SATC, it's time to rejoice!
No shade to the late Mr. Big – although the scandal surrounding Chris Noth has made feelings around the character a lot more complicated – but Aiden was always the perfect match for the overly complicated Carrie Bradshaw.
The return of the beloved and humble carpenter has everyone excited.
Corbett's reprisal tease a possible love reunion between Carrie and Aiden and could also be what saves AJLT.
Again, season one showed some promise. But once certain characters, ahem Miranda Hobbs, starting spiraling by cheating on another fan-favorite Steve Brady, the revival was becoming less and less appealing.
Besides the raunchy sex scenes, SATC was a gem to watch simply based on its emphasis on female friendship, the glamorous New York City lifestyle, and of course, Carrie's ridiculously expensive collection of shoes.
It's also worth mentioning that the chemistry between Carrie and Aiden was almost a little too good, which makes this go around a perfect opportunity for the former lovers to get it right this time.
This is all assuming that AJLT doesn't screw the pooch with Aiden's storyline, so we'll be holding our breaths.
In the meantime, viewers can stream the first season of And Just Like That on HBO Max.
