It's sad because it was a really fun, witty, and well-written show.

This was such a great show, I'm so upset that it got canceled, but I'm glad that I bought the season and can continue to watch it.

It had really great chemistry, and I plan on getting the Dvd's as soon as they come out.

Why didn't Perfect Couples get a fair shake? If you are married or in a relationship, then you get this show. It had really great chemistry, and I plan on getting the Dvd's as soon as they come out. A show needs time to build a fan base. I didn't even start watching the Office until season 3. It finally clicked one day. Some people are slow and it's really too bad this great comdey series was removed from the air. I really hope it's put back in the NBC Thursday night line up.

This was a funny, quirky, weird show and like most funny, quirky, weird shows it was never given a much of a chance. It didn't have a laugh track and it didn't pander to the lowest sitcom common denominators. I really miss this show, and miss it even more now that I've seen the new shows NBC has thrown into its new Thursday night lineup.

The show revolves around three couples (Dave & Julia, Vance & Amy, Rex and Leigh) and how they each would handle the daily problems life would throw at them. For the most part, each episode would start with a central theme that gets carried through the episode. For instance, one episode starts with "Things That Go Bump" and it shows how each couple deals with a noise that wakes them up at night. For Dave and Julia, Julia ends up yelling out the window to some kids to get off their lawn. Carrying that theme through then, the rest of the episode deals with Dave trying to find a situation where he could take charge and help Julia out.

Maybe because it didn't have the setup, punchline, and audience cue to laugh, that this show didn't get a large audience. It's sad because it was a really fun, witty, and well-written show. I hope that now that its out as streaming here, that it will be able to gain an audience. If you are looking to try one episode out, two of my favorite episodes are "Perfect Jealousy" and "Perfect Lies".

I applaud Amazon and am grateful to NBC for releasing three un-aired episodes of the show to Amazon Instant Video (Perfect Pants, Perfect Daughter, and Perfect Tens). I only wish the whole season could have been made and released.

This is the first review I've ever written on Amazon and it because I'm so moved that I heard today this show is most likely canceled.. It is an extremely good show and the first new show in awhile that I've enjoyed...

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Paul P. Belle Isle on June 17, 2011
Early on in the series, Olivia Munn steals the show with small, but pitch-perfect, contributions sometimes involving little more than gestures and stellar timing. By the last episode of season one, however, it's clear that all six members of the cast are each very, very funny in their own ways, and the chemistry between them is outstanding.

The main theme is nothing new - the differences between men and women is a central idea that has been done many times before and will be done many times in the future - but "Perfect Couples" takes an approach that is fresh, witty, often subtle, and best of all, even-handed in its mockery of both sexes. (Unlike most sitcoms, which tend to feature idiotic husbands and long-suffering wives.)

It's definitely not for everyone - most great efforts aren't - but if you are a fan of off-kilter humor and enjoy watching actors grow fully into their roles, "Perfect Couples" is well worth your time.

This show is hilarious. The characters are great, and the actors really have chemistry with one another. I look forward to watching years and years of this show.

Unfortunately, we found this show after it was cancelled, but still love it. We had been watching it on Hulu, but apparently they dropped it too. So we decided to buy it here, as we find ourselves watching several episodes at a time for some good laughs. The show revolves around 3 couples, and I'm sure most would think they are most like the "normal" couple and yet I'm sure we all know some couples that are like the 2 other extreme couples: so in love, or constantly fighting (but also extremely in love).

Give it a shot, and I think you'll find yourselves watching it (and quoting it) quite often.

We LOVE this show! I was surprised that it was cancelled and even more surprised that another network didn't pick it up. What was the most disappointing was that there was't much advertising for it...this show never really had a chance because we just happened tio stumble on it...it would be really neat if more episodes were made!! I would buy all of them! Phrase pass on to powers-that-be...it's a smart, funny show! Bring it back!!
