Episodes included on this first season set are:
"Flushed" -- Steve (the beset Jack Davenport) tries, mostly unsuccessfully, to break up with Jane (the mad Gina Bellman), while beginning a relationship with Susan (the radiant Sarah Alexander).
"Size Matters" -- Steve and Susan's relationship reaches a new level. Sally (the moisturized Kate Isitt) is horrified by Patrick's (the swaggering Ben Miles) political beliefs.
"Sex, Death and Nudity" -- Everyone ends up at Jane's aunt's funeral. Jeff (the crazed Richard Coyle) has his job interview strategy boomerang on him.
"Inferno" -- Susan discovers Steve's video collection. A dinner party goes awry.
"The Girl with Two Breasts" -- Jeff tries to connect with a girl who doesn't speak English.
"The Cupboard of Patrick's Love" -- Susan discovers that her ex (Patrick) has videotape of her in a compromised position.
There is a second season of nine episodes currently in rotation on BBCAmerica for you digital cable subscribers. And a third season has just begun airing in England.
Also, word is that an Americanized version of this show is being groomed as a replacement for ... aw, you guessed it. The soon-to-end Friends. See where it all began here.
And see where it (probably) was a whole lot funnier. Unfair pre-judgment. But probably true.
And don't even think about lending your DVDs to a friend. It will be impossible to get you friend to give them back.
This stuff is laugh out loud funny...and mini-marathons watching the DVDs make for great girls nights in.
The DVD includes the Episodes: Flushed; Size Matters; Sex Death and Nudity; Inferno; The Girl with Two Breasts; and The Cupboard of Patrick's Love
Wait till you hear about "Wobble Wars"! :-D
The characters are six thirty-something friends who are involved, formerly involved, or potentially will be involved with one another.
Susan is beautiful, bright, secure and sexy tart.
Jane is a nitwit completely oblivious to social tact and often oblivious in general.
Sally is pretty, but shallow, insecure, and vain. She is obsessed with appearance and aging (primarily her own but she also delights in critiquing other women).
Steve is a bit neurotic but the closest to "normal" in this bunch.
Jeff is a lunatic who has never had a normal healthy relationship with a women. Typically when he is around attractive women his brain disengages and he stammers himself into impossible-to-explain situations. Jeff has his own unique views on life and has named some of life's most arcane occurrences ("the sock gap" etc.). Naturally he has to explain this stuff to his friends.
Patrick is a lothario who is the antithesis of political correctness.
This is the funniest show on television - period. I regularly laugh out loud especially at Steve and Patrick's reactions to Jeff's absurdity. How many laugh-out-loud funny shows are there on television really? The humor is at times British but that only contributes to Coupling's charm.
Coupling is probably not appropriate for young children and the character's topic of discussions are frequently sexual in nature.
Hysterically funny show! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Coupling, too, is about a group of 6 close friends, and deals with their every day problems and relationships.
In the first series, we are introduced to Steve, who is determined to break up with his girlfriend Jane and discusses this with his best friend Jeff. In their regular pub Steve runs into Susan (a colleague of Jeff), and sets a date with her. All this happens while he is having sex with Jane in the ladies' room.
Susan breaks up with her boyfriend Patrick, and her best friend Sally decides Patrick is fair game. More so after hearing Patrick is well endowed in the nether region section.
After the introduction episode, we get to see how Susan and Steve hook up together, and the crazy adventures the friends roll into. There's Jane's aunt dying, a discussion about Lesbian porn (the spanking kind), Jeff running into a stunner of a woman who doesn't immediately mace him, and Patrick's personal porn pile (starring Patrick).
While each of the actors is equally brilliant, the genius and probably the reason Coupling is such a success is Jeff (Richard Coyle). His absurd experiences in life have caused him to come up with names for situations. You'll laugh your ass off while he explains the "The Zone", "Unflushables", "The Sock Gap" and most brilliantly, "The Giggle Loop".
But you're not ready for that ;)
A definite recommendation. And for those who cannot get enough of Coupling, season 2 and 3 have also been brought out on DVD.

I liked the other 3 seasons a bit more. The season was a bit slow, but the last episode crammed a lot of ideas, they just wanted to get it over with.Published 2 months ago by Josh LRRC
A racier and Seinfeld-like take on Friends. My favorite was the Episode 3 - Sex, Death & Nudity ("to know of the giggle loop is to become part of the giggle loop"), and The... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
