Coupling Plot

Coupling is a British television sitcom written by Steven Moffat that aired on BBC2 from May 2000 to June 2004. Produced by Hartswood Films for the BBC, the show centres on the dating and sexual adventures and mishaps of six friends in their thirties, often depicting the three women and the three men each talking among themselves about the same events, but in entirely different terms. The series was inspired by Moffat's relationship with producer Sue Vertue, to the extent that they gave their names to two of the characters. Coupling is an example of the "group-genre", an ensemble show that had proven popular at the time. Critics compared the show to the American sitcoms Friends and Seinfeld. The critical reaction was largely positive, and the show was named "Best TV Comedy" at the 2003 British Comedy Awards. The show debuted to unimpressive ratings, but its popularity soon increased and by the end of the third series the show had achieved decent ratings in the UK. The series began airing on

Before Moffat had Doctor Who and Sherlock to his name, Coupling did more justice to his genius script writing skills. Hilarious, autobiographical and genuine, coupling is the original from which every sitcom in the future will uphold the standard. Coupling has the most relatable friends' circle with the funny one, the quirky one, the stupid one, the couple in love, the sexy one and the pervert. The finest british television from the 90s.
