Breasts, bottoms and pants are the basis for most of the conversational analysis when these friends get together as a group, as couples, as girlfriends, or as mates, invariably becoming metaphors for the state of a relationship or situation. Individual viewpoints and terrors are explored through respective memories of the same event and what-if scenarios. Chain reactions inevitably ensue, fuelling comedy that is based almost entirely on misunderstanding. --Piers Ford
- All 9 episodes
- Interviews with producer Beryl Vetrue, writer Steve Moffat, and actor Jack Davenport

THE MAN WITH TWO LEGS: Jeff finally works up the nerve to approach a girl on the tube whose leg he's been gawking at each day. Will he blow it with another one of his bumbling lines?
MY DINNER IN HELL: Steve bumps into a television presenter he's always fantasized about, and Jane has a fool-proof hairbrained scheme that she swears will help she and Sally meet her.
HER BEST FRIENDS BOTTOM: Steve makes a surprise visit at Susan's apartment, thinking it is she in the shower. It's Sally, and the entire episode revolves around that fact that Steve saw her bottom.
THE MELTY MAN COMETH: Will Patrick and Sally finally come together? If Patrick doesn't stop "failing" then perhaps they can!
JANE AND THE TRUTH SNAKE: In possibly one of the funniest episodes ever, Jane loses her job as traffic reporter. Never fear! She has a career plan up her sleeve that involves children's entertainment and a sock puppet. That's all I'll say.
GOTCHA: One year after their first date, a wedding invite is sent to Steven and Susan. Steve, of course, panics into thinking Susan will now pe expecting a proposal herself.
DRESSED: The meaning of Jane's invite to a dinner date is misunderstood, and she shows up naked under her coat. When she arrives to a flat full of guests, she has to do some quick thinking (rather a lot for Jane, really!).
NAKED: Jeff's 30th birthday is coming, and his workmates have planned a surprise celebration for him. Again, invites are misunderstood and Jeff ends up stripping down naked in front of his workmates...and his parents!Read more ›
I watched the NBC pilot this week, and just cringed. It is the same story as the original BBC episode, with all of the humor sucked out, and with far, far less talented actors. The actor portraying Jeff is so badly cast, he destroys every line he is left with in the butchered script.
Consider taking some classic Monty Python sketches, editing them for an "American Audience" and having the lines delivered by a completely different set of actors who didn't understand the humor in the first place and you have the NBC version of Coupling.
Buy the Season 1 DVD to get acquainted with the characters and you will be hooked. I Cannot wait to get my 2nd season DVD. The 3rd season is airing intermittently on BBC America, and a 4th is still at the script stage. I can't wait.
