I have seen only the first two episodes of And Just Like That, the much-anticipated HBO Max reboot of Sex and the City, but like the second of the two SATC feature films that followed the original television series, I already wish it had never happened. And I don't see how the remaining eight episodes this season could possibly change my mind. Indeed, I haven't seen so unwelcome a shift from bright comedy to humorless dramedy since the dismal 1990 Brady Bunch reboot The Bradys or, even worse, the 1999 follow up to The Mary Tyler Moore Show, titled Mary & Rhoda, which was the pilot for a series that was mercifully not picked up.
