When a show captures the zeitgeist of its time as well as Sex and the City did, viewing it from the distance of a decade or two brings its best and worst moments into much clearer focus. Here, in honor of its 20th anniversary, is every episode of this sometimes problematic, sometimes infuriating, sometimes sublime — but no doubt seminal — show, ranked. On the other hand, it plummets in our ranking for its clumsy handling of Samantha dating a black man named Chivon.
