Product Description

Coupling: The Complete Third Season (DVD)

The third series of Coupling, first aired in 2002, takes fans of the BBC's comedy of sex, manners, and modern relationships into new realms of engaging surrealism, leaving those irritating comparisons to Friends trailing in its wake. The men are constantly in pursuit of a basic grasp of the "emotional things" that make women behave the way they do. The women analyze everything to death. But thanks to Steve Moffat's scripts, tighter and quirkier than ever, these characters are living, breathing human beings rather than cynical ciphers for comedy stereotypes.

The performances are as strong as you'd expect from an established team, with actors such as Jack Davenport (the ever-perplexed Steve), Ben Miles (unreconstructed chauvinist Patrick), Sarah Alexander (dryly intelligent Susan), and Kate Isitt (neurotic Sally) wearing their roles like second skins. But in the surreal stakes, it's Richard Coyle as Jeff, wondering aloud what happens to jelly after women have finished wrestling in it, and Gina Bellman as Jane, musing on the importance of a first snog in identifying what men like to eat, who really raise the laughter levels. All things considered, this is superior comedy for all thirtysomethings--genuine and putative. --Piers Ford

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece! April 13, 2004
Coupling is one of my very favorite shows for several reasons: the terrific actors, the solid scripts, and it simply makes me laugh more than most other sitcoms. This season features a lot of farce and new Jeffisms (such as "porn jelly" and "secret listeners"), but there is also more of an emotional depth given to all of the characters. I can't review the DVD itself yet, but if the special features and presentation are anything like they were on the second season DVD, that would be fabulous. Here is a recap of the seven episodes of this season:
1.) Split - Picking up where season two left off, we follow Steve and Susan (in a split-screen format) after their breakup. The men and the women head to their own versions of the "Temple of Woman", before Steve and Susan reunite again.
2.) Faithless - Jane falls for a handsome co-worker at her radio station, James, the host of a Christian program. Meanwhile, Jeff tries to figure out whether his pretty co-worker Wilma likes him as a friend or as something more.
3.) Unconditional Sex - Wilma admits her sexual attraction to Jeff, despite her having a boyfriend and him being involved with Julia. Jeff tries to find a way to stay faithful to Julia without offending Wilma, and confusion ensues.
4.) Remember This - Patrick shows up at Sally's apartment at 3am, believing Sally had called him to get rid of a spider. It turns out that he had dreamed about the phone call, and he interrups her night with another man. This later prompts Sally and Patrick to reminisce about their first meeting. They describe two very different versions of what happened to their friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their Funniest Season Yet! March 29, 2004
By A Customer
Frankly,I would prefer to watch Coupling any day of the week and would gladly stop watching Friends. Why? Because this cast tests the boundaries of comedy and the whole half hour is hilarious! My favorite episode is the season finale when jeff starts dancing to the spider man theme song in a spidey costume! and finally patrick and sally admit their feelings to each other! all i have to say is that jeff (richard coyle) made this season the best...with the episode in which he has 8000 names for breasts or him and Porn Jelly. yes there are only 7 episodes, but you will be laughing the whole way through. go out and buy it...and i guarantee you it will be bloody brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars The surprise of Series 3 is the sympathetic Sally Harper November 18, 2004
There are only seven episodes for the third series of "Coupling," which is a disappointment, and the focus actually shifts from Steve (Jack Davenport) and Susan (Sarah Alexander) to Sally (Kate Isitt) and Patrick (Ben Miles), which is actually pretty interesting. Meanwhile Jeff (Richard Coyle) tries to make the worst of his relationship with Julia (Lou Gish) and Jane (Gina Bellman) starts dating the celibate James (Lloyd Owen) from the radio station.

Far and away the two best episodes of the third series are the first one and the last one. As we remember from the previous series, Steve had finally proposed to Sally while she was pretending to be married to Patrick, but then there was that unfortunately incident with the girls all pretending to be Giselle and Steve answering the phone in an Australian accent for Bruce's Bar & Grill because he has swapped phone numbers with a girl at the bar. So the one couple on "Coupling" that are actually coupled start off uncoupled in "Split." The effective gimmick here is when the split occurs we see it literally on the screen as the picture "tears" in two. We then have one camera following Steve and one with Susan for the rest of the episode. The screen is split various ways (left and right, top and bottom, big and small), which works well in the sequence where both the guys and the gals deal with the problem of checking to see who made the last call to Susan's phone.

We end up covering familiar ground with Jeff in "Faithless" and "Unconditional Sex" as Julia is out of town and one of the women at work Wilma Lettings (Emilia Fox), takes a fancy to Jeff. In a twist on "Cyrano de Bergerac," Jeff's conversation with Wilma at the bar is being listened to and commented on by the rest of the group courtesy of the headset he is wearing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as season 2, but still darned good! December 3, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As is always the case, when a show this good gets to about the third season people stop comparing it to other shows and start comparing it to its own past seasons. As is the case with Coupling. This season 3 DVD is still funnier than anything you will currently find on American network TV. Period. I would not go so far as to say that it is better than Coupling Season 2, but it is at least in the same ball park!

If for no other reason, this DVD is worth buying because this is the final season for Jeff Murdock (the funniest character on the show).

If you are a fan of the show and have season 1 & 2 already, then you absolutely MUST buy this DVD. If you are not already a fan, wait and buy them one at a time in order so that you can decide if this is for you or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Made DVD of Great Series June 21, 2004
By A Customer
This DVD, the last Coupling DVD that will feature Jeff, who left the show after the third season, is outright hilarious! Farce at its best. But while the situations are as funny as ever, the plots get deeper and more meaningful in this season than some of the earlier ones.
It should also be clarified that a previous reviewer's comment about poor sound on the DVD is not accurate. The first episode, Split, features split screen with Steve's story on the left and Susan's on the right. The stereo sound is split accordingly with Susan's voice primarily coming from the right speaker and Steve's coming primarily from the left. I suspect that the previous reviewer is either watching a mono TV which is dropping the right channel rather than mixing them, or his or her right speaker or stereo separation is defective. The sound works perfectly on my set.
This is an amazing program, extremely well written and acted, outrageously funny. I highly recommend it!
