| I was horribly confused when I bought the entire Coupling series on DVD; Oliver was on the front but I had only ever seen Season 2. I was like "God, Jeff looks a bit odd..." Not in an ugly way, of course, just different. I thought they'd used a funny camera angle or something. |
Can you believe one season of a show made me spend $100 on the entire series? Well, yes, you probably can.
Anyway, I must say that the adorable awkwardness and slight sexual perversion of Jeff won my affections; Oliver was cute, but he seemed like too much of a replacement Jeff to be his own character.
And, also, I have a soft spot for Welshmen.
Oh, God! Jeffina! I don't think I've ever laughed that much. And the woman who played him (Samantha Spiro)... My God, was she good at that. The accent and the way she moved... everything. It really was like Jeff as a woman.
The same thing happened to me; I saw part of the first season and then got the entire season. Definitely worth it though. The woman who played Jeff was perfect. It made it seem so much like Jeff was back (with a few changes).
