Coupling: Inferno   Rewatch 
March 4, 2015 7:14 AM - Season 1, Episode 4 - Subscribe

While tidying up Steve's flat, Susan finds a hot tape we'll just call "Inferno" ... but that's not the FULL title. At a dinner party featuring all the friends, plus Jane's ambiguous guest, he is called upon to give a detailed review of the film and, by extension, a defence of the whole male heterosexual psyche. Jane also takes this evening as her opportunity to proclaim her variety of "open" vegetarianism.

Steve's attempt to explain the plot of "____ ____ Inferno" followed by his rant about men's interest in porn is without a doubt my favorite moment of this entire series.

My wife and I have seen this series at our local video store, and have come close to renting it. Is this really something worth devoting a weekend to viewing? I see Moffat is the writer, which can be a good/bad thing, depending.

I would recommend it. At least the first series/season, as I think it has all my favorite bits. It's similar to "Friends" in that it's six main characters (and you can almost match them as types across both shows), but the stories and situations are quite different. It's much sexier than "Friends," and has a lot of that "British people uncomfortable talking about sex" humor. Also some fun playing with non-linear story structures.

(Just do not watch the US version. They tried remaking it here to literally replace "Friends" but of course they ruined it.)

Jeff's attempt to explain Lesbian Spank Inferno was pretty funny. A collective. Independent filmmakers. A sisterhood.

Jane's "being vegetarian means being open to saying yes. . . to meat" is so perfectly her.
