Since it clocks in at almost 2 1/2 hours, you may think, sight unseen, that the movie version of the HBO smash Sex and the City is guilty of wretched excess. Pathetic excess is more like it. This time out, we get a lot of moping, whining and weeping - despondency in the city and inertia everywhere else. Even when the heroines log major screen time at a five-star Mexican resort, it's so Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) can lick her psychic wounds. Fans who came on board for the series' frisky take on sorority, female eroticism and the adventures of singlehood - be forewarned.

Confessions of a former Sex and the City addict: I secretly despised Carrie Bradshaw. Here was the country's most glam television character, a New York City newspaper columnist, parading around in the likes of Prada and Gucci and two holy Christians -- Dior and Louboutin. "A real journalist could never afford those clothes!" I'd scream at the television set. Believe me, I would know. So when I heard that Sarah Jessica Parker -- the actress who played Carrie on HBO's hit show -- was teaming up with discount chain Steve & Barry's to produce a line of low-cost, high-style clothing for women, I felt tremendously validated.

It's Fleet Week in New York, and Carrie Bradshaw and her girlfriends are trolling a Navy party for studly morsels in tight, white packages. Predictably, it isn't long before Carrie gets her first nibble. She looks out onto the sea of starched white and quips, "This is like the Bermuda triangle for women." "You're funny," a young, handsome sailor says. "You remind me of my mom." The scene is a painful but telling moment that crystallizes the feel of the start of Sex and the City's fifth season.

Cheap Frills by Jennifer Knapp (Chronicle, $19) is not for the lazy, the sophisticated, the snobby or the average. It is, however, for the funky, the crafty, the hip and the over-the-top. Loaded with personality and creative ingenuity (of the Pretty in Pink / Molly Ringwald variety), the book teaches you how to weave new life into your old clothes using a few stitches and lots of ribbons, beads and sequins. Got a plain old '90s cardigan? A little faux fur, some fake flowers and sequins take it from dull to diva (pictured, upper left)

You know what you want. So stop shortchanging yourself with TV shows that can't give it to you, that don't know how to give it to you. You deserve to spend your time with a show that can hit your intellectual, emotional and other assorted buttons -- and all in 22 commercial-free minutes. So dump that "Jesse" chick already and tune in and turn on to HBO's eroti-comedy "Sex and the City." The third season premieres tonight at 9. Look for your shallow, sleazy one-night television stands elsewhere.

Talk about fabulous fantasies. Tonight, as HBO's Sex and the City returns with the first of its final eight episodes, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) gets to sleep with Mikhail Baryshnikov. Next week, even better, she gets to dance with him. The bedroom experience is meaningful enough that, once Carrie is out of his arms and back home alone in front of her computer, she asks what she calls the "classic question" for women in the wake of such moments: "Where is this all going?" It's the same question many longtime fans of the acclaimed HBO series are asking as Sex and the City hits the home stretch of its sixth and final season.

Comedy basically means watching bad things happen to others, and ABC's new sitcom Emily's Reasons Why Not debuting tonight pushes that principle to frantic limits. Too bad that approach doesn't generate more laughs. Emily's Reasons depicts the romantic pratfalls of Emily Sanders (Heather Graham), hapless editor of self-help books. The comedy employs a strong cast, but the introduction to the characters isn't encouraging. Based on Carrie Gerlach's novel, Emily's Reasons Why Not lets its heroine prattle on in a style that in no way surpasses Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City.

Dear Cheryl, Where can I find clothes / shoes / handbags / jewelry similar to those seen on Sex and the City without paying exorbitant prices? -- Trina in San Francisco Dear Trina, Talk about the big fashion question of the past couple of years. As much as I adore the HBO series, it has always been a complete mystery how Carrie Bradshaw has kept her closet stuffed with Prada ensembles and Manolo Blahniks on a journalist's -- take it from me -- usually measly salary. There is hope, however, for real people on a modest budget.

I'm not ashamed to admit it: I love a good Cosmopolitan. I like to order the sweeter, flirtier cousin to the Martini for when, you know, I don't want to end the night on the floor. Sure, it still conjures images of Carrie Bradshaw traipsing around Manhattan - or the immature sorority girl trying way too hard to emulate her at a bar. But a Cosmo, the right Cosmo, can be playful and fun. So imagine my intrigue when I spotted a gin-based Cosmo at the newly opened Adam's Eve Gastropub in Canton: the Bluecoat Continental Cosmo.
