THEN AND NOW: 'Sex and the City' Cast
Miranda Hobbes is a career-minded lawyer with extremely cynical views on relationships and men. As Harvard Law School is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts it is unlikely she yet lived in NYC three hours away, unless she was simply in New York at the time and was friends with Carrie during her last year of college. It is more likely a mistake of the writing. Miranda is from the Philadelphia area, and is Carrie's best friend, confidante, and voice of reason. In the early seasons, she is portrayed also as masculine, but this image softens over the years, particularly after she becomes pregnant by her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Steve Brady, whom she eventually marries. She is also very promiscuous, but is a long way from the promiscuity of Samantha Jones.
Should Sex and the City just scrap the revival and bring back the indomitable Miranda Hobbes for a solo spin-off? The witty, individualistic and often confident Miranda has carried the show on her shoulders since she ended up with the responsibility of being the most grounded, realistic friend who just seems to know better and has no delusions. As television evolved, modern audiences began to associate less and less with characters who do not show any signs of self-awareness or are unable to laugh at themselves.
