how did i not know that one of the better episode writers for the new Doctor Who (steven moffat, wrote The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, The Girl in the Fireplace, and Blink) is the one who created the UK sitcom Coupling?

i mean, i've seen a few episodes of Coupling and thought they were pretty good (much better than Seinfeld or Friends), and i always meant to watch more of it, but i never got around to it.

Maybe it's time to. The last sitcom i watched with any sort of regularity was Family Ties because i'm pretty sure that almost all sitcoms created after that are rubbish. (although i've always been somewhat intruiged with Malcolm in the Middle and Arrested Development, i never actually got around to watching them because it was around then that i stopped watching regular telly.)

Coupling was excellent
Oddly enough this is a show I learned about from my wife and my mother...

I really like Coupling. There were a few bits in the final episode that haunt me to this day. The season finale for 3 and 4 were perfect. There are few shows that have been better written than the S4 ending in my opinion. Granted more than few parts of that episode hangs with me.

Well that and the equivalent for the Theme song from Madamme Butterfly... :)

Re: Coupling was excellent
I just killed a good half hour, rereading old Coupling quotes and episode guides.

Time well spent:)

Coupling is excellent! Teh Moff is fab. When RTD leaves, I want Moffat to take over.

You should definately check it out. Arrested Develepment is worth watching as well.
