Comfy is used to describe an episode or era of Doctor Who in which the general tone of the material exudes a feeling of inner peace and happiness, reminding one of childhood cuddled up on the couch in a warm blanket watching Saturday morning cartoons, preferably with hot cocoa while its lightly snowing outside.
Comfy factors Edit
Material can be considered comfy if:
- The material is GOAT for cuddling with a significant other.
- The material persuades the person nearest you that you're very interested in to cuddle up with you.
- The material is well written and produced to a point that it draws you in and doesn't let go.
- The material is poorly written or produced and has a B-movie nature to it, making one laugh or feel at peace by the sheer silliness in the material's creation - this is particularly true if the actors seem to be genuinely trying to make the material good.
- /who/ says so.
