Movie Reviews

One of the most hysterical shows ever!

"I am an avid BBC America viewer - this program hooked me the first time I watched it. I made my husband watch it and he was instantly hooked too. It is funny beyond belief! Both men and women can relate to it, and gives you inside glimpses into the minds of the opposite sex.This isn't Friends...this isn't even the NBC version of Coupling. Even though they used almost the exact same script, the actors and director of the NBC version did not hit the mark even remotely. The British cast and director hit the mark square in the center every time. The characters are likeable, even with their flaws - and it's their flaws that make them hysterical.One thing - this is not something to watch in front of kids - this is very adult humor. This is comedy at it's best. You will hurt yourself laughing. We enjoy it so much, we're getting this set to give to friends of ours for Christmas."
I am in love with Coupling

"This is beyond fabulous. Perfect enough that I find myself making excuses to stay home and watch it in its 10pm Friday night time slot. Beyond raunchy enough that I was terribly embarrassed at making my dad stop channel-flipping to watch an episode when I was visiting my parents last weekend. So universally funny that he laughed more than, and loved it at least as much as, I did. I love poor, awkward Jeff, and all of the delightfully horrific things that come out of his mouth. He's probably the only character on television that I can watch make a total idiot of themselves without cringing, becoming terribly self-conscious, and having to change the channel."
Very Funny

"I caught this show on the local PBS station and immediately fell in love with it. Baudy without being vulgar it is a laugh riot from start to finish. The only drawback is the number of episodes. Evidently, British TV does not run on a strict new episode every week format. So both season one and two together have fewer episodes than one season of a typical American TV show. But it does make up in quality what it lacks in quantity.

I highly recommend the seris"

"NBC has pulled off a real miracle -- lifting almost verbatim the funniest script ever to air on television, putting it in the hands of an American cast, and producing the biggest turkey in recent sitcom history. Thank goodness for BBC America, without whom the current sitcom wasteland on American TV would expand beyond the horizon.

When it comes to almost any aspect of sex, the line between sublimity and absurdity is scarily thin and easily crossed. Sometimes the line can be crossed simply by voicing what occasionally crosses all of our minds. Every episode of this BBC series is a smorgasbord of dashes, stumbles, and retreats back and forth across this line. (Perhaps it's the voicing of these silly, sometimes taboo, thoughts that makes the British version work so brilliantly and the American version fail so miserably. The British actors simply bring better voices to the game -- not in terms of accents, but in terms of more earnest delivery, more abandon as actors, more sincere perplexity at the foibles of human sexuality, and less self-consciousness about airing it all.)

Take, for instance, the dinner party from hell. Jane (the meat-eating vegetarian) shows up for dinner with her psychiatrist in tow, whom Steve mistakes to be Jane's lover. Through a series of gaffes that cannot be explained with mere words, he winds up trying to backtrack from suggesting she grows two extra breasts when she gets excited. And all this while the hors-d'ouvres are still going around. By the time the main course is served, Steve is deep into a forced exposition of the artistic merit of "Lesbian Spank Inferno", his favorite porn flick which he inadvertently left in the video player for his girlfriend to find.

Now come on. Which of us hasn't wondered how we'd explain ourselves if caught red-handed with one of those movies everyone has, everyone knows everyone has, and to which no one will freely admit? It's just so wonderfully liberating to find that porn, properly defended, can be explained after all to one's dinner guests.

Assuming your guests have the tolerance for ribaldry at the Sex and the City level, this is a series to be played at your next party. It's just to good to do it alone."
