Storyline

The mating ritual can get messy. Let's see if we have this straight... Steve's with Jane but he's suddenly hot for Susan who met Steve through Jeff whom Susan used to go out with though she's just dumped Patrick despite the great sex so Patrick's asked Sally out which bugs Susan since Sally is her best friend... Based on the outrageous British hit series of the same name, Coupling concerns love and lust among six thirty- somethings who are either involved, formerly involved or looking to become intimately involved -- often with each other. The result, not surprisingly, is a very involving comedy filled with eye-popping situations and equally jaw-dropping one-liners. The comic possibilities for pairings appear as limitless as the characters' desires for Coupling. Wild comedy... Insatiable laughs. Written by NBC Promotion

Oy VEH, this was bad!
26 July 2007 | by (Eugene, OR) – See all my reviews

I was pretty dubious when I heard that there was going to be a US remake of Coupling, but I figured, "Oh, what the heck? How bad could it be?" I should know better to say that in the country that invented Fox News and "The Simple Life."

It wasn't just that the sets were kinda cheesy. It wasn't just that they copied the script word-for-word. No, it was that the actors were totally unconvincing. Truly awful. {sigh}

Spoken English English is in iambic pentameter. Spoken American English is in iambic quadrameter. English English scripts spoken by Americans don't sound right because the tones are wrong. That'd have been easy to find out if anyone had listened to it. But this brings us back around to the question of why on earth they used the same script. If you wanted to hear the original script, why not just license the original show and save yourself all that money?

I cannot believe that they didn't screen-test this somehow. The sounds of people in the test audiences eating their own left feet out of desperation would have given them a hint that something was wrong.

Sheeeeesh
