Coupling (BBC-2 2000-2004, Jack Davenport, Gina Bellman)
Sitcom Coupling followed six singles making their way through the big-city dating scene. Jane and Steve were a couple, but they broke up and Steve started dating Susan, who used to date Steve’s good friend Patrick. Susan’s best friend is Sally, who then becomes attracted to Patrick after finding out that he was “born very lucky.”
The oddballs out are the wacky Jane, who Steve found so hard to break up with that she was deemed an “unflushable,” and Jeff, an innocent, sweet kinda guy who’s not had much experience with ladies (and is – to be honest – terrified of them), but still has plenty to say on relationships and women.
Through these six characters writer Steven Moffat gives a bold, frank, hysterical look at modern relationships from both the male and female perspective.
