The US version of Coupling was put on "hiatus" by NBC (after something like 3 or 4 episodes), so more than likely, it'll never see the light of day ever again. For some reason, not too many US versions of British shows tend to do well.

One of my favourite "sit coms", if that's not the wrong term to use. I'm surprised that no american tv companies have bought the broadcasting rights for the show. We get it on Norwegian tv for crying out loud.
But I suppose it does work better for the brits. After all there are many people (british politicians, actors, celbreties etc) which most people abroad have never heared of.

We get it too down south (well, compared to Thom@s, we ARE down south ), though it's usually only screened at around midnight. I loved the NY special they did, especially the file footage of the VS A340.
Also, the one they did, where they went to Paris, because the "other one" (can't remember the name) was going to do a photo session for some fashion magazine. The ending was absolutely hilarious - poor Saffi
Now, a rather strange question - who the heck is that strangely demented girl that's always running around in a dress that would make Boy George proud? I skipped the series for a while and then all of the sudden she was there.

Yeah, it's Bubbles alright - as for how we are downhere: Cold. We had some snow day before yesterday, yesterday it was around -5 degrees centrigrade and today it's -5 degrees centigrade & the wind is storming. So if I had had chance, I'd stay in bed all day. But of course, I had to get out, and some kids (5 or 6 of them) decided that I was going to be target practice for their snow/gravel/stones/???-balls. Fortunantly for them I wasn't in the mood for running and fortunantly for me they had absolutely zero aim - with one of them managing to miss me by 3 feet despite only standing 6 feet from me!
