Product Description

More than just a one night stand! Pick up BBC's most successful new comedy since Absolutely Fabulous, as Coupling returns with the two-disc set Coupling: The Complete Second Season. Find our who splits, who hooks up and pick up even more outrageous "Jeffisms" from this brilliant and sexy farce.

Amazon.com

Steven Moffat's second season of Coupling is a brilliant consolidation of all those neuroses, small deceits, obsessions, and personality tics that struck such a resonant chord when Steve, Susan, and their four friends were first unleashed on us. Comparisons with Friends itself are tiresome and lazy: Coupling is an intrinsically British comedy that picks apart the trivial and the mundane in everyday relationships and takes them on surreal journeys, leaving the participants hilariously bemused and rarely any wiser. Its success is due to the magical combination of Moffat's very funny scripts and the talents of six extremely likable actors, including Jack Davenport (Steve) and Sarah Alexander (Susan). But it's Richard Coyle's Jeff whose sexual fantasies exert a compelling fascination that will really keep you watching in disbelief.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars It's finally here! November 5, 2003
By Shaz
Format:DVD
I picked this up the day it was released. Yes, you can watch "Coupling" on BBC America, but these DVD's are worth it, because they still edit some content for time. With Season 2, you get the following 9 episodes:
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Comedy Classic! September 27, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Coupling is comic genius. Despite the risque subject matter of practically every episode, the excellent script and brilliant acting and especially timing of the cast is superb. Ther isn't too much TV comedy that can withstand numerous viewings, but even after remembering most of the lines of every episode of Coupling, it still just cracks me up. Jack Davenport's (Pirates of the Caribbean and The Talented Mr Ripley) comic timing is incredible as Steve and Richard Coyle (Jeff) is..., well his character defies categorization, but Jeff is a unique and hilarious character because of Richard's remarkable abilities.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! January 26, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I admit that I am a huge fan of this series (and thus not very impartial) but I just had to voice my opinion that Coupling is the brightest, most hilarious comedy to hit the airwaves in any country for many years. After the greatness of Season 1, I was worried that Steven Moffat would not be able to maintain the sheer brilliance of his characters and the hilarious situations they encounter. In Season 2 I found the writing and acting to be even better! "Jeff Murdock" remains the jewel in a crown of great characters. I have to recommend this DVD as equal to or greater than season one on all levels, which is saying alot. It is also great that Season 2 contains nine episodes, as compared to six episodes in Season 1. Buy this DVD... you won't regret it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong second season August 5, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
If you've seen the first season of Coupling, you'll love the second. It's often that sex farce comedies can't cut it past a first season. Coupling is a notable exception. The second season is where Moffat begins to explore more of the characters. Sally and Patrick develop an excellent story line that is completely dysfuntional, funny and sometimes touching. It also contains the most famous Jeff-ism "The Melty Man" and Jane puts in an appearance at a social gathering completely naked. While there are some episodes that are stronger than others, overall this season stands on sturdier legs than the first, which in retrospect, seems like a giant exercise in exposition. The extras on this DVD are better than the scant offerings of the first. These include commentary by cast and creators as well as a much more in depth interview with both Vertue and Moffat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh-out-loud funny October 29, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This 2nd-season package is a step up from the first, as this one has nine, as opposed to six, episodes, plus these have the added bonus of commentaries. (Both season sets are essential viewing though.) I noticed from watching this second-season disk set that the show was actually filmed and is presented in wide-screen, a nice treat for DVD owners, and something you don't see very often in the TV show world. I find the hefty $35 retail price a bit difficult to swallow, but fortunately Amazon.com is discounting it to $25, a bit more reasonable. I first started watching this on PBS back in the Spring 2003, and found myself laughing out loud through most of the show. Casting is as key to the chemistry of this show, as it is to Will & Grace and Seinfeld; the NBC Americanized version is PATHETIC, and I cannot even stomach watching it. (The writing has noticable changes as well, diminishing the comedy. For example, in the first episode of the original BBC series one of the male characters says everytime he tries to break up with Jane, she tricks him into continuing with the relationship. Last time he tried, Jane then told him she was wearing stockings. "In the three years we've been going out, she's never worn stockings before." Then adds, "And I begged!" In the Americanized NBC version he says more vulgarly that she wasn't wearing panties; more crude, and much less funny.) The guys all discuss things that ring true, but are so taboo that they've never been uttered before on the screen. Plus, there's no repulsive sentimentalism and lame attempts at drama that makes Friends so dreadfully awful. This original BBC series is laugh-out-loud funny and shouldn't be missed.
