If you like "Friends", you'll love "Coupling" on BBC America!

    My Tivo just caught this show for me last night and I proceeded to tivo some other episodes and I gotta say....this show is what Friends would be like if the censors allowed them to actually say what was on their minds.....Beautiful women, guys who like porn and drink ale at the local pub. Funny stuff. Check it out, you won't be dissapointed.

    I've caught a few episodes in the past, I caught some more last night, and I have to agree: a very funny show. I love the way British television can get away with so much more. My only regret is that based on last night's broadcast and showings in the past, there only seem to be about six episodes that BBC America is showing.
    Does anyone know if any more were made?
    And for those of you who've seen the show, I have just one name: Jenny Agutter. [​IMG]
    For those of you who haven't, tune in!

    This is weird - in Britain the show was largely dismissed as another attempt to imitate Friends but without any of the sharp writing.
    Afraid I can't help you with the number of episodes, since I haven't watched it - just not my cup of tea, old boy; I much prefer Friends and Frasier.
