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

Trivia

When Richard Coyle read for the part of Jeff, he spoke in a Welsh accent. The character wasn't written Welsh, but the producers liked it and hired him. It wasn't until well into the second series that they realized that Coyle was not Welsh, just putting it on for the show. See more »

One of the best
16 December 2004 | by karl-devosSee all my reviews

Just simply amazing how Steve Moffat and his wife are getting away with it: words that would be censored in most series, fly about in this one and you don't feel offended. Every episode is different and the build-up (flash forwards, split screens, themes that run through various episodes) is amazing for a comedy series. British humor at it's very best and very recognizable for every modern day couple. Don't hesitate to go out and buy the four series, you will not regret it and they will put a smile on your face over and over again.
