"Size Matters"

As expected, my traffic spiked again tonight after "Coupling" was on. Lots of people are looking for naked pictures of Rena Sofer. "We've turned the internet into an enormous international database of naked bottoms!" - Steve, in an upcoming episode entitled "Inferno".

Jeff defines the Sock Gap: "I mean, where exactly do you take your socks off? My advice is to take them off right after your shoes, and before your trousers. That’s the sock gap. Miss it, and suddenly you’re a naked man in socks. No self-respecting woman will ever let a naked man in socks do the squelchy with her."

The second episode (adapted from the UK first series, second episode "Size Matters") showed the cast a little more comfortable with their characters. Nothing major jumped out at me from what was in the missing 8 minutes, and there was a nice little original bit at the end (Susan grabs an electric toothbrush, which Steve mistakes for something else that vibrates). With only 8 or so episode per UK series, the US series will be adding some original episodes (according to people who have seen the tapings in LA, as reported on the BBC America "Coupling" message board - which series creator Steven Moffat also reads).
