Coupling: The Giggle Loop
February 18, 2011 Leave a comment
I’ve recently started watching the amazing English comedy series Coupling. Coupling, created by current Doctor Who head writer Steven Moffat, is the story of a couple, Steve and Susan, and their four close friends. The show is a witty sex farce with an at times unique vantage point on life. Take for instance the frequently batty character Jeff. Jeff ‘s take on the world includes such concepts as the “nudity buffer,” the period of time between when you start talking to an attractive person and when you start picturing them naked. Another one of Jeff’s very real concepts is the “giggle loop” which is demonstrated with pub glasses.
