In a recent Kindle Singles Interview, Sex and the City creator Darren Star said that he didn't think that Carrie Bradshaw, the show's main character (played by Sarah Jessica Parker), should have ended up with her on-again, off-again boyfriend Mr. Big (Chris Noth). In response, half the world's SATC fans yelled at their computers, "I KNOW, RIGHT?" It's not that he wanted her to end up with someone else (sorry, Team Aiden), it's that he would have preferred the show ended with Carrie single. He saw her romantic, happy ending as a betrayal of what the show was really, at heart, about—"that women don't ultimately find happiness from marriage." He clarified: "Not that they can't. But the show initially was going off-script from the romantic comedies that had come before it. That's what had made women so attached."
