Cashmere Mafia – the new Sex and the City

 

Imitation might be the sincerest form of flattery but what is it if all you are doing is imitating yourself? Such is the question posed by Darren Star's new series Cashmere Mafia, in which the former Sex and the City executive producer doesn't so much pay homage to his previous series as regurgitate it for a new generation.

Or so it seems at first glance. All the things that made people love or hate SATC appear to be present and correct in Cashmere Mafia - from the number of friends to the ever so slightly wacky fashion (courtesy of SATC's ever so slightly wacky fashion guru Patricia Field) to the way in which our heroines are forever meeting up for lunch in chi chi restaurants to dig the dirt or being filmed strutting down the street in slow motion.

So far so familiar, and at this point I have to hold my hand up and admit that I loathed Sex and the City, finding all four of the main characters unbelievable, unpleasant and very irritating - so it was with some trepidation that I watched the first two episodes of Star's newest show.
