The third series of Coupling, first aired in 2002, takes fans of the BBC's comedy of sex, manners and modern relationships into new realms of engaging surrealism, leaving those irritating comparisons with Friends trailing in its wake. The men are constantly in pursuit of a basic grasp of the "emotional things" that make women behave the way they do. The women analyse everything to death. But thanks to Steve Moffat's scripts, tighter and quirkier than ever, these characters are living, breathing human beings rather than cynical ciphers for comedy stereotypes.

The performances are as strong as you'd expect from an established team, with actors such as Jack Davenport (the ever-perplexed Steve), Ben Miles (unreconstructed chauvinist Patrick), Sally Alexander (dryly intelligent Susan) and Kate Isitt (neurotic Sally) wearing their roles like second skins. But in the surreal stakes, it's Richard Coyle as Jeff, wondering aloud what happens to jelly after women have finished wrestling in it, and Gina Bellman as Jane, musing on the importance of a first snog in identifying what men like to eat, who really raise the laughter levels. All things considered, this is superior comedy for all thirtysomethings--genuine and putative. --Piers Ford

4.0 out of 5 stars Ingeniously Clever!!! 16 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Anyone who loves the First and Second Series will certainly not be disappointed with the Third - quite to the contrary actually. The Third Series is marked by the same originality, wit and cleverness in conception that has become the trademark of "Coupling". It shows Steve and Susan's relationship flourish into a mature and stable union, nonetheless, we will continue to see Steve's outrageously hilarious "outbursts" at the dinner table, as the battle between the sexes continues. The highlight of the Third Series is undoubtedly the sizzling sexual tension that begins to grow between Sally and Patrick, which will culminate into an exciting finale in the last episode. The Third Series will unquestionably leave you wanting more...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Yet 27 Sep 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You probably need to see series 1 & 2 to get thoroughly grounded on this dysfunctional group's dynamic but then you are in for a treat.
The central theme continues as the guys struggle to comprehend the girls in a series of classic 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus' situations. And then there's Jeff...... who knows which planet he's from?
There's continued great use of the parallel view technique, (seen in earlier series) either concurrently with a split screen or the same scene reprised from the other gender's viewpoint. With some beautifully crafted scripts to emphasise the differences this technique adds to the comedy.
Very, very funny. It's 'Friends' with more raunch and more reality

5.0 out of 5 stars Friends, what Friends??? 17 May 2004
Take it from someone who used to, kinda, enjoy Friends every now and then: all those who dare to compare Friends and Coupling have no idea what they're talking about! You simply can't compare a lame, pathetic, plain vanilla excuse of a sitcom to a brilliant, racey, inventive, side-splitting rollercoaster of fun. What's funny is that I'm not even British or native English speaker for that matter, so some of the jokes have regretably gotten wasted on me! However, I haven't laughed that hard since Seinfeld (nor I thought I ever would). Needless to say I'm completely addicted, and since my da*n cable provider doesn't carry BBC America, I guess, I'll have to wait until season 4 comes out on DVD. As to American remake of Coupling, all I can say is - please! As one of the reviews on the Internet said, one can't duplicate brilliance. How true!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh no it isn't! Oh yes it is! 16 Dec 2003
Is series 3 as funny as the first two? At first I thought not - the situations in the 3rd series are (if possible) even more ludicrous than those in the first two. It is true that the writer does some things with the characters that feel out of line with the way they are in the previous series, but people do change - and anyway, we aren't talking about real people here!
In the end, series 3 does still have a lot of marvellously funny moments, and the characters that previously played second fiddle are brought out more. The extras on the second disc are light (28 minutes) although they do contain some interesting interviews, and there are commentaries on a lot of the episodes (4 or 5) which are worth a listen.
In the end, I think it IS as good as the first two series. The acid test is that it too can be watched several times without getting boring, and for me that says a lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first two. 13 Oct 2003
I have to say that I regard the first two series of Coupling as just about the funniest thing that I have seen on TV in years. The third series is much of the same really, but it does not seem to have the freshness of the first two.
For those of you not familiar with the show, it basically follows a group of six people (allegedly based on the writers life and not a rip off of Friends) through their relationship problems. It is in places one of the crudest shows I've seen, but it manages to pull this off without being offensive as it all seems to fit somehow.
All of the gags in series three are pretty much along the same lines as before, though they all feel a little more forced than before. I think some of the problem is that we now know what the characters are likely to say, so it does not surprise when they do. I don't think anyone could have expected Jeff to have told a woman that he has a false leg in series two, but now we know that these are the things he does, we can't be that shocked.
Not that this is a bad DVD, far from it. The first five episodes all contain standout moments, but the last two are noticeable weaker and the overall package suffers as a result. The extras disc is completely pointless as well - I would sooner have just had the shows and no extras for less money.
To sumarise, if you are a Coupling fan, buy it. If you've not seen the program before, checkout series 1 and 2 first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coupling Series 3 continues in its funny-ness 10 Aug 2003
Ok, first of all, Series 3 isn't released yet...but is out in September, the reason I am writing this review is because I have seen the entire series on the bbc, so i can encourage you to buy it when it is released. The eagerly awaited 3rd series is nearly ready for release and it is continuing in its real-life situation/funny real life way that can happen to us all. Writer Stephen Moffat continues his success in writing this huge UK hit sitcom, and does not fail to impress here either. With Steve and Susan split, he has cleverly written 'two scripts' following the life of the two (surrounded by the other characters' into one episode. This is a new thing for UK comedy but works extremely well and just improves its funnyness. This is another GREAT BUY-MUST BUY situation and will keep you laughing untill your head nearly does fall off with laughter. After watching the thrid series, i found myself not being able to wait for the next -> yes the next series, series 4 will begin shooting later this year and come to our screens around 2004. Again this is a great buy, but won't make much sense unless you have seen the other two series'. Although it doesn't take much getting used to, this is a great sitcom, and something all people should experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever plotting as ever.
All the brilliant episodes you want are there, but the extra DVD doesn't add much- pretty pedestrian interviews and a half-hearted blooper reel.
