Cashmere Mafia?

Cashmere Mafia will follow the lives of four ambitious and sexy women, who’ve been longtime best friends since their days at business school, as they try to balance their glamorous and demanding careers with their complex personal lives by creating their own “boys’ club” (The Cashmere Mafia) to protect each other and discuss their personal ups and downs as they try to have it all in New York City.

Four girls + NYC does not Sex and the City make.

Honestly, this preview looks like a cross between SATC on a high dose of Prozac and Kathie Lee Gifford’s personal life. I loved SATC because it was fun and light and made fun of itself and the life the girls led. No matter how serious the topic, there was always a smile on your face as you watched. This Cashmere Mafia show looks like it’ll have you slicing your wrists open half-way through an episode.

This is a dirt-poor man’s SATC. No drool-worthy guys, no to die for outfits, no LOL story lines, no smart-ass funny comments. No Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte or Miranda.

Whoever said this was the new Sex and the City is blind, deaf and dim-witted or never watched the show.

What the hell is this? Drama? Comedy?

I like that Eowyn is there, LOTR nut that i am. :P

Have to see an episode first. Maybe it won't be so bad. Though, i highly doubt it can be compared to SATC. Honestly..

Sorry, I think comparing CM to SATC is lie comparing a pair of heels from Sears to a pair of Manolo's. Yes, they are both women's shoes, but that is where the likeness ends. CM was so boring and predictable. All the women were sad, having traded happiness in their personal lives for success in their professional lives.
It seemed not to have an ounce of fun or optimism. And, as you so wisely pointed out, not a good looking man or a fabulous outfit for miles around.
and I wanted to like it, I love Lucy Liu.

Cashmere Mafia. What a stupid name. But I think Lucy's boyfriend is kinda hot.

Saw this, meh. Sex and the City my ass. The clothes are glamorous (but not as fab as those of the SATC girls) but no witty dialogues.

But you know what? With the writers' strike still going on and almost all tv shows being cancelled, this show may actually find some followers.

Re: Cashmere Mafia. What a stupid name.

So true!!!!!!

I just remembered that last season a show started with three female leads (maybe detectives?), can't remember the name but they were comparing it to SATC too. And that John Stamos show that was v. bad from a couple of seasons ago was the "SATC for men" please get something new b/c these SATC type shows are obviously NOT WORKING!

Cashmere Mafia,
Yes, I HATE the name, too. Is the other one Women's Murder Club? That name is ridiculous, too. Who names these shows?
