Men and the last bastion


You can't go wrong with a scene from Coupling to raise some debate or simply laugh a little. This is one of my favourite TV shows and definitely my favourite on the subject of relationships between men and women.
The scripts are brilliant and thought-provoking.
This one is part of an episode called Inferno, which is a must-see. Men and bathrooms. I knew about that, but I needed the explanation.

No debate here, I’m in the laughter category, uproarious laughter! I loved this guy’s eloquent rave—fully plumbed caves and who gives a damn about the smell, recreational haircuts out of boredom and despair, walking the toilet mile alone... The hilarious differences between the sexes that we never get tired of rolling our eyes about, that we’re eternally surprised anew about. It’s an inexhaustible area. Thanks, that was great! :-D

I've never really seen it before but I shall investigate further

LOOOOOOOL walk the mile alone! This one's hilarious! And in most cases, I cant agree more ;-)

Luckily, men and women don't have to completely understand each other to get along :) Honestly, the bathroom thing could stay a mystery for me though. Really.r

Missalister: If you loved that bit, you'd be in tears of laughter if you'd seen the whole episode. I'll see if I can find more clips :)

Chris: Really? You didn't know this? But you must!

Miss Iyer: We can agree to disagree (men and women, I mean), can't we?

Stephanie: AS long as it doesn't get into much detail, I like to understand...

More clips! That'd be great! I love British humor. I adore Monty Python. The Holy Grail is an all-time favorite. And although I all but never watch TV now, I used to love watching Keeping Up Appearances and Are You Being Served?

Devil Mood said...

Missalister: Those are all fabulous classics! I love the expressions of Hiacynth in Keeping up appearances LOL

For some reason..the screen showing the video is missing..but anyway, I love Coupling too..I think Geoff is my favourite character!

Devil Mood said...

Niall, really? I can see the screen here,perhaps it hadn't finished opening. I always thought of him as Jeff but I guess Geoff is the same thing, isn't it?
