  摘要 This thesis aims to re-examine the acceptation of discourses on and around “power structure” in Taiwan by applying a textual analysis of Sex and the City, the HBO original series which has raised debates on subjectivity, consumption, and power control among the public media and academic arena in Taiwan since its debut in 1999. The analyses of power relations and the interpretations of the lives presented in SATC will be different from most of the criticisms circulated in newspaper columns, internet discussion board, or news group, which more often than not take the TV series as deception to its potential audiences, masking the male dominant power control by creating the needs of false and conspicuous consumption. Michel Foucault’s counter hypothesis theory will be re-appropriated to examine the way discourses on “power” is accepted, and Ulrich Beck’s “risk” theory in a modern society will be drawn to account for the unprecedented phenomena in a de-traditionalized society which may be re-inforced by the appearance of such a TV series as SATC. In the end, Borge Bakken’s theory on “exemplarity” will help conclude possible reasons and results of appropriations of power discourses and the consequences of how such appropriations may change our society when combined with education.
