Coupling: the Complete Series

This fantastic boxed set covers Coupling series 1 through 4 and is the tale of six thirty somethings (Jack, Jane, Jeff, Steve, Sally & Susan) trying to find their way in life and love. Some folks looking at the cover may think the story is a variant on Friends but not entirely so. Coupling is a genuine tale in it’s own right that is a great watch and something you are sure to enjoy. 

Series like this only work through a great writing team and actors who really feel the roles that they are in and that is what you will experience with Coupling as the characters interact with each other, especially when you take into account that this group comprises of people who have gone out with each other and best friends! 

One of the things I loved about the series which was really an aside to the whole thing were the unique terms that they used in it like squelchy which immediately had me thinking “ewww” J 

The show deals with the pursuit of sex and relationships and also the men trying to figure out how women work which is pretty much a mission impossible as it is (I don’t think we are ever really meant to figure them out!). It’s the straight forward banter between the two genders the provides the most laughter. 

Series four saw the most obvious amounts of turmoil with Jeff not being there most of the time, replaced by Oliver who fit in with the group nicely. However in a nice twist…. Ah I better not tell you, almost spoiled the surprise. 

Ultimately even though I have mentioned that Coupling is it’s own show you may find yourself drawing similarities with Friends, the humour is very much different and certainly more in your face than that great sitcom. This six disc boxed set is wonderfully rounded out with a bevy of extras that really tie it all in together nicely. 

Coupling has a high recommendation. In this age of “reality TV”, we don’t find ourselves with a lot of great comedy other than through the DVD format so it’s nice when a high quality one becomes available in it’s entirety.  

It’s a great show and as long as you are not a prude you will be laughing all the way through it. So hint for Christmas or get it for yourself immediately.
