Not just an adult version of "Friends" !

You can be forgiven for thinking that "Coupling" is just the UK, more adult version of "Friends", but only if you haven't seen it yet.

I will admit that there are basic similarities, such as there being six people, two of which are going out and that there is a slightly wierd woman in the group.
But that is about where the comparison ends. "Coupling" has a quirky, adult sense of humour, which stems from some ingenious writing. But that's not all that sets "Coupling" apart from the rest of the comedy world. There is some fantastic "coincidental" storyline, which you won't find in "Friends", say.

The characters are all loveable in their own right, and there is definitly one character that will appeal to you! The episodes are superbly acted, with great flair and determination.

I've been told that the first season isn't even the best yet, but I can scarcely believe that it can get any better.

Good series, if a little short and well worth the money!

    What is this? Is this from the back of the box, or something? I'm sorry – Coupling is crap. Not a scratch on the sort of writing talent Friends enjoys, or the performances. I couldn't care less about the characters. In fact, I can't stand most of them. Seriously. "Coincidental storylines" = lazy scriptwriting.

  2. I'm sorry you feel that way, but that doesn't give you the right to insult my views and opinions. I didn't write this review to make people watch it, but rather to express my opinion about this series. I love Friends too and I think these two series are very different and both very good. So don't flame reviews.

  3. Yeah Coupling is quite funny. However, 'Friends' is cutesy american CRAP. All IMHO of course.

    i think that coupling is far superior to friends. hoverever, the newest (fourth series?) was utter rubbish as jeff wasn't in it! he was easily the best character and had all the best lines.

  5. Then again the female version of Jeff that was seen in the dream was pretty damn funny.
