Woman Spots Mistake in 'Sex and the City' Intro You Probably Never Noticed

For many, the And Just Like That reboot currently airing is bringing back a host of memories of Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes, Charlotte York and even Samantha Jones.

The Sex and the City TV show, originally on our screens from 1998 until 2004, tells the story of a group of 30-something singletons navigating the world of dating in the big apple.

The iconic theme song, and introduction, featured shots of the city and Carrie, played by Sarah Jessica Parker.

But one fan noticed an error in the opening sequence, which many have seemingly overlooked all these years.

Kara McLean shared a clip to her TikTok page, @aquietlifewithme, as she revealed the rookie continuity error.

McLean, from England, wrote in the on-screen caption: "TV mistakes: Sex and the City and the bus blip."

For anyone not familiar with the scene, Carrie is walking along a street when she appears to get splashed by a passing bus, featuring her face on the side.

But McLean, who worked in music publishing in the film industry, pointed out not one, but two mistakes.

The bus which is meant to soak her is driving through the puddle in one shot, and in the next it's miles away from the sidewalk.

And in the next clip, the bus is packed as it turns a corner, but it's then shown completely empty.

The editing suggests the vehicle is mid-turn, meaning it's unlikely the fictional passengers would have all gotten off at a stop.

Speaking to Newsweek, McLean revealed her friend, Sarah, had informed her of the editing fail, as she regularly shares movie and TV mistakes on her TikTok.

In the clip, posted on Wednesday, McLean says: "In this one here, what you've got to look out for is the bus that goes past her. I mean first off, are we meant to think it's the bus that's splashed her? Because it's well away from the curb when we next see it.

"But the thing that Sarah pointed out, is that when we see it in close up, there are people on this bus. There they are, they're having a lovely day out in New York city.

"But where have they gone? There's no people on that bus anymore. Was this an early blip?"

Chatting to Newsweek, McLean said: "Sarah pointed out the people on the bus and then when I watched it back I noticed how far away from Carrie the bus was when it was meant to have just splashed her.

"I love the mistake! I'm fascinated by the technicalities of filmmaking that lead to these little errors and I am always excited to see something where the director/editor has decided that the error doesn't matter because it's the best take.

"I didn't notice it until Sarah pointed it out but I never really paid attention to the opening titles or fast forwarded through them.

"I assume they shot the close-up on a different bus maybe even on a different day? Then filmed the SJP coverage and decided no-one would notice. I mean, the focus is very much on Carrie."

McLean, whose video amassed thousands of views, said she gets mixed reactions from people when pointing our an error.

Pointing Out Mistakes

"I get some people asking who cares but a lot more people enjoying them. Depending on how popular the film/show is (like Lord of The Rings) sometimes people will jokingly tell me off for ruining their favorite.

"But I also get so many comments asking me to do videos for other mistakes. I enjoy finding funny ways of pointing out the mistakes."

In the comments, DB joked: "'An early blip' I love it."

While Rachelle Forbes552 pointed out: "When they meet the French Man, he eats an olive from his martini, and I'm sure he eats the same olive twice!"

McLean admitted she's a fan of the original series, saying: "I very much enjoyed the original series and was even lucky enough to go to the first SATC movie premiere in London. I haven't watched all of the latest series yet."

Stars of the Reboot

The current reboot features 10 episodes, and while Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis reprised their roles, Kim Cattrall doesn't feature in the show.

Willie Garson starred as Stanford Blatch, in his last television role, after passing away on September 21, aged 57.

His last appearance is in episode four, which pays tribute to the late actor, with a message at the end of the first set of credits reading: "In memory of our beloved Willie Garson."

Another actor who reprised his role was Chris Noth, who plays Mr Big, although fans were shocked to discover (spoiler alert) he's died.

The 67-year-old has been rocked by a string of sexual allegations from three women, allegedly taking place in 2004, 2010 and 2015.

Noth, who denies the claims, released a statement saying: "The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false."
