On paper this is such an self-indulgent idea for an episode, with the added possibility of it being nauseating and dull - as so many couples' attempts to interest others can be. In reality, this was fucking awesome and I found myself thinking that not only is their conversation fascinating but that they sound so happy and compatible that I realise all my own relationships have been mere shadows played on the wall of a cave. I assume they'd hate the phrase soulmates but if the cliché fits... Also, and sorry to lower the tone, but Mrs H's voice is sexy.

Interesting how some male commenters are using Sam and Anneka's seemingly great relationship to be disparaging about women. Way to miss the point and to miss the reason you don't meet amazing women.

You talked about consciousness and free will on your first date? You lucky dog. I can't find a girl whose intellectually capacity extends beyond the plot of Harry Potter. P.S. I've never heard Sam laugh so... "fully." A full body laugh.
