Classics Lessons from SATC

Because it won't go away (Sex & the City)...

Radar waxes poetic with story lines and classical mythology, my fav being the Achilles reference, just because:

Here's the thing about Achilles: He begins the Iliad phenomenally upset because Agamemnon—who's a king, mind you—has stolen his concubine. Achilles refuses to fight. And yet, many bloody days later, it's the death of beloved friend Patrochlus that finally leads Achilles out of his tent to kill all the Trojans. This is sort of like the part in season one, episode 12, where Charlotte dates that guy who really enjoys listening to Cher, but also enjoys boning Charlotte. You know, the gay-straight, straight-gay guy.
