I watched the premiere episode of Coupling tonight. Having seen the original British show of same name, couldn’t help but think: “what a ripoff.” 99% of the dialog was the same and it wasn’t even funny this go around. So I was somewhat disappointed. Many of the jokes just fell flat. Maybe it has something to do with the lack of British accent. Or maybe it has something to do with the actors they chose for the American version. It should be interesting to see how the show fairs. I could be wrong, but something tells me it won’t be must see tv for long.
