Just saw Coupling a while back, the American version. God awful. The show is so much cooler on the BBC. Ok, I have to admit the people don’t look as good there (hmm.. or do they?), but who cares? They so fit their parts. The dialogue is insanely funny. (That, and they use proper words. British words.) And the characters have humour in their lines. The show there is mostly slow dialogue, and the humour is quite subtle at times. This just seemed slapstickey, in the sense that they were trying too hard to be funny.
I can’t believe I missed most of an episode of South Park for this. Gah!
