  • A match for Jeff? Saints preserve us!

    This particular episode of Coupling again features Jeff in his unending search for a compatible woman. As a regular viewer might guess, that's a tough woman to find. However, it looks as though he's finally found his match in Julia. Though she is his superior at the office, she's his match in ineptitude when it comes to the dating game.

    After the pair have an initial encounter that is related in two incredibly different ways to their friends by the principals, the stage is set for an ending that is sure to shock. It seems at first glance to be one of the cruelest fates ever to befall our friend Jeff, but the writers manage to pull it out and leave us happy.

    This isn't necessarily my favorite episode, but with a series this funny, even the non-favorites are head and shoulders above most of the other comedies on television. And any episode that features Jeff is worth watching.
