Storyline

On average, men and women think about sex every six seconds. Shorten that to every second, and you've got Coupling. It's more than just a one night stand! When a couple gets together, it's never just the two of them - they also bring baggage - and Susan and Steve are no exception. Their baggage is a crowd of best friends and exes who talk about all aspects of sex and relationships on their never-ending quest to find true love. Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps... Susan Walker is a beautiful go-getter with an uninhibited attitude who used to date Patrick Maitland, the sextet's charismatic, cocky player, London's king of conquests - a guy who's just too cool to worry about being smart. Attractive Sally Harper is a beauty therapist who is Susan's unashamedly vain best friend, who aggressively battles aging with heavy doses of moisturizer and men - including Patrick. Meanwhile, Steve Taylor, while getting together with Susan, can't seem to shake loose from his vivacious and slightly vacuous ... Written by I'm_So_Sexy

Consistently hilarious!
13 July 2002 | by (Wolverhampton, England) – See all my reviews

I happened to drop on this series in the middle of the first run of the second series last year, and can only regret missing the first series. In my admittedly humble opinion 'Coupling' is one of the funniest sitcoms I have seen in many years. I agree with other reviewers in that the show can be compared to 'Friends', but is this necessarily a bad thing? I think 'Coupling' is almost unique in it's blend of adult orientated humour and traditional sitcom situations. The writing is little short of inspired and the acting superb. Only one criticism in that the storylines tend to have a common element, that of one character or other finding him or herself presented with a once-in-a-lifetime sexual opportunity and something going horribly wrong. But this is a very minor criticism and in no way detracts from my enjoyment of the show. Please please please BBC. Give us a third series!
