What I’m Watching: And Just Like That

And Just Like That: Season 1, Episode 9 “No Strings Attached” (B+)

Since I didn’t watch the original series regularly, I don’t know what the relationship was like between characters and their friends’ spouses, but I do like when everyone comes together and gets to interact. Carrie wearing high heels to a day of painting was an absurd choice, and Steve came through phenomenally by rescuing Big’s ring when it unsurprisingly fell down the drain while she was washing off her heel. He was right to be upset about Miranda suddenly leaving and Carrie potentially being somehow involved due to her working with Che, but it was mostly about how his feelings wouldn’t go away and he didn’t plan to ever take his ring off. Carrie made a similar decision when she met up with Peter again, though she might eventually be more open to dating, and maybe even trying again with Peter. Miranda did throw a lot at Che when she just showed up unannounced, and I’m not sure that screening their call to seem less available is the right move, but at least it’s a step. Charlotte trying to help Lily through her tampon emergency was entertaining, and fortunately Carrie and Miranda got to her before she walked around too much without knowing what was showing on her clothes. I enjoyed getting to see Nya’s reaction to meeting Lisa, who emerged out of a limo ready to provide catering for all the volunteers at a moment’s notice, and how that led to an important conversation with Andre when he saw how Herbert was as a dad to his kids.
