Superb British comedy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Coupling: Complete Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
British comedy seems to have come through a rough patch (Exhibit A - Gimme Gimme Gimme) with a renewed vigour. Coupling is to relationships what The Office is to the workplace. Despite the ridiculous situations the six characters find themselves in, there are some great observations that are so true to life they are painful to watch.
Some of the scenes in this series had me having to mute the telly and watch the subtitles. It was making me cringe to hear the characters digging themselves into deeper and deeper holes. Jeff's "too many legs" episode is a great example.
I'd thoroughly recommend this series, but I don't think it necessarily appeals to everyone. I think that comparisons with Friends are inevitable, but I think that the two are quite different. Coupling is a little more risqué, but very funny with it.
