Again, going back to my editing/rushing through material comment, the Titanic reference confused me a bit. I understand your take on it, and you very well could be right, but I wasn't sure if they were talking the next morning or more time had passed. And if they are such good mates and, well, guys, why not just tell him he was with Trish and felt something? He didn't have to go into detail about how he discovered he had recovered some sensation. Or maybe the Titanic thing did happen and he decided to share that because it just happened and was a nice surprise? And why am I thinking so much about this???
In regards to the male frontal nudity, I've seen some of what you are talking about. There is no question that female nudity is shown much more than male nudity on TV and in film, though we are gradually seeing more of the full monty. ;) But in one of the articles I read, the writer was also talking about how on another UK show it was a big deal that two men kissed, which left me going, "Huh?" That's definitely something that is becoming more and more common in the US (on TV and in film), to the point I can't recall the last time it made the entertainment news here. So I was wondering if the nudity would make as many 'headlines' here as the UK?
