    I just got word from the BBC UK that one of my favorite britcoms, 'Coupling', is in the works for R1 DVD. No release date yet.
    This show, which appears similar to 'Friends', is actually much funnier (IMO), has more character development, and is a lot raunchier.
    It can currently be seen on BBC America on Friday nights.
    Anyhow, I don't normally pass along info like this but I really like this show. [​IMG]

    Funny show! Thanks for the info. I've been enjoying some episodes a friend tapes. This will be a buy for me.

    Oooh. I think I saw this a few times on PBS but I could never figure out what the name of the show was.

    Is this the one with the episode with the doofy guy who tries to pick up this Israeli girl in a bar and she doesn't speak English? Cute show.

    Well that figures!

    Just this week I broke down and bought a multi-region DVD player -- mainly so that I could watch the region 2 "Coupling" and "League of Gentlemen - Series 2" discs from the UK.

    This is great news. One of my favorite TV shows of late. Glad to hear series 2 is on it's way in region 2.

    I was wondering if you had seen this in the States, I have been preaching about this series to my American friends, I must tell them to look out for this on TV.

    I have the excellent Reg 2 1st series and I am pleased to anounce that the second series which has recently been shown in the UK is even better !

    This show is superb and the Israeli girl episode is just perfect. Wait till you see the excellent second series, and its w/s anamorphic !!

    The odd thing about Coupling is that they only showed a few episodes of it on WGBH and then it totally dissapeared. They have a short paragraph on the website about the show, but that's about it.
    I mean, come on, how many times can they show Are You Being Served?[​IMG]

    Since we're comparing to Friends, is there anyone on it that is as hot as Jen Aniston on Coupling? Links to pics, or names would be appreciated...

    BBC America on Directv shows Coupling here.

    The blonde and the redhead are pretty hot on Coupling.

    I saw a spot on Ent. Tonight a while back which says that NBC is looking at an American version of this show to replace Friends with after its final season.
    I turns to me missus and says, "Why don't NBC just air the Britich version, if it's so good?". [​IMG]
    I'll definately take a look at it!
