A few weeks later on 28th October 2003 Warner will release the complete second season for one of our hottest exports, Coupling, at a retail price of $34.98. Coupling: The Complete Second Season is spread over two-discs and presented in Anamorphic Widescreen with English Stereo sound. In terms of bonus features you can expect to find the Interviews with writer Steven Moffat and star Jack Davenport as featured on the UK Release, and better yet (though a kick in the teeth for us), the Americans will also be given Audio Commentary with the Cast, writer and producer. Oh, they get Cast Biographies as well.
