Coupling - The Complete Third Season

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

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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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!
