Coupling - Series 4 continues the comedy magic!
on 10 July 2004
Before I start praising the series, I better tell you that Jeff, the zany, hapless one has elected to leave the show in order to embark on other projects. You might say that it is a miracle we still got Series 4, because writer, Steven Moffat said that he almost axed the series, but luckily, he's produced another fine six episodes, so I think that people should be grateful we got any...
I think this series however does have a different feel to it, it's darker, cleverer, the plots are thicker. I know people blame the show's so-called murderer, Oliver, Jeff's replacement but I, alone maybe, found him very funny and in a way as good as Jeff because it was a new character to explore, get to know, develope. Jeff was great, but it is nice to have a new face to laugh at.
The episodes are on the whole fantastic, I especially liked 'Night Lines' and '9 and a half months', where Susan gives birth. A wonderful series that deserves more than it is getting, if people want to watch Jeff, play the earlier DVD's but true fans who believe in comic evolution shall enjoy this series no end.
