On average, men and women think about sex every six seconds. Shorten that to every second, and you've got Coupling.
This series centers around Susan and Steve (who are a couple), and Sally and Patrick join the gang as friends of Susan (and then Steve), while Steve pulls in his best friend Jeff and his crazy ex Jane.
One bar, three different points of view, the same nine and a half minutes. Susan and Steve are pregnant (mostly Susan), Patrick and Sally are discussing relationships (mostly Sally), and Jane has a blind date - but will his job be a problem? Meanwhile, in the skies above an Aegean island, terrible danger grows.
A phone call between Susan and Sally grows and grows as Steve, Patrick, Oliver and Jane gradually find their way onto the line. Will the phone call ever end?
Since the dawn of time, men and women have been falling in love - and men have been trying to get straight home afterwards. Can fallen playboy Patrick Maitland ever find his way home from the Enchanted Glade of his one true love and get a decent night's kip? Kate Isitt as Sally makes her singing debut.
It's time to start attending antenatal classes. Susan need a back-up birth partner, Steve is haunted by the ghost of spanking lesbians past and Sally is seeking the solace of a string quartet. Meanwhile, Jane is trying to find a way to out-keen Oliver.
Oliver invites Jane to his apartment, not realizing that things such as porn and dirty dishes now replace the floor. Meanwhile Patrick lets the fact slip that he slept with Jane during a conversation with Oliver and Patrick which gets back to Sally. While all the drama unfolds Susan realizes that the pains in her stomach means the baby is finally on his way.
Steve panics at Susan goes into labour, Patrick panics as Sally goes Hulk-style mad after finding out he's slept with Jane, who is oblivious to all the tension and is having a blissful afternoon with Oliver.
