Unlike other who will review this DVD collection, I have never seen the show on television. So everything was new for me from the original pilot episode throygh the remaining 23 episodes of the first season. With the commercials excised, each episode lasts about 22 minutes and it's easy to watch three or four at a time. Actually, I found this helpful since this is more of a continuous story line where each episode generally picks up where the previous one ended.

For the newly initiated viewer the show looks like its going to be all sex and body jokes, and that's pretty much what it is for the first five or six episodes. If you've watched Desperate Housewives and found the sexual humor of 40 year old women lusting after young men or their neighbors husband, you'll feel right at home here. In fact, I was not that familiar with Courtney Cox (well, some folks aren't "Friends" alums) and many times she reminded me of Teri Hatcher's character, Susan, in DH.

After five episodes the sex jokes began to get stale and I wondered how a whole season would hold out. But then, about episode six, all the characters who had separate relationships with Jules (Cox's character) met one another and now they became only happy (well, mostly) dysfunctional family. There's even a brief "making of" featurette in the bonuses where the creators discuss this issue. From that point on (the "bonding") the show takes a 90-degree turn and holds your interest - as well as tickles your funny bone.

Women of Jules' age will relate with her frustrations while men will find humor in the guys in the cast, though probably won't relate to them. And this is one of those TV shows that has a killer soundtrack, inserting pop songs at just the right moment.

In 2009, Bill Lawrence (co-creator of "Scrubs" and "Spin City") and Kevin Biegel thought about a TV series that revolved around single people in their 40's getting back on the dating scene and for Lawrence, said he was also inspired by his wife, actress Christa Miller (who also stars on the show "Cougar town", "Scrubs" and "The Drew Carry Show") and her life when she walked out of the shower, went in front of the mirror and flashed it. By that action alone plus their ideas of featuring a 40-year-old trying to get back into the dating scene, the idea of "Cougar Town" was born.

"Cougar Town" is a sexual comedy sitcom which revolves around Jules Cobb (played by Courteney Cox, "Friends", "Dirt", "Scrubs"), a 40-year-old divorcee who is a single mother raising her teenage son Travis (played by Dan Byrd, "Aliens in America", "Heroes") and also is successfully business owner who owns her own estate business. Having been divorced for eight months, Jules now wants to have fun and enjoy life like a single woman would. No strings tied, no relationships, just to have fun and most of all, having some sexual freedom in her life.

But of course, she's learning quickly that entering in the dating game (and not wanting a relationship) at age 40 is not too easy, especially if your eyes are in younger men.

Fortunately for Jules, she has a support system which includes her next door neighbor and best friend Ellie Torres (played by Christa Miller). Ellie inspires Jules because she is married and has managed to make her marriage work. Ellis is also a voice of reason and a friend she grew up with and since both Jules and Ellie tend to do everything together.

We are totally hooked on this show. My husband and I both like it. We crack up when we are watching it and usually watch 4-5 episodes at a time. The jokes are funny and the story keeps you interested and wanting more. The actors work so well together. I wish we lived by these people, I would love to drink wine with them at 8 am! We are Scrubs lovers and this has the same humor. Give it a chance and you will love it too!

I love this show! Hilarious good fun! I enjoyed it so much during the regular season that I bought the first season and had a Cougar Town party weekend. We drank wine and watched the show. All my friends who had missed it before were instant fans and are watching the new season. It's a definitely a must see!

This show is quick witted and very well-written, with a great cast. The show starts off slowly, with a theme that revolves around Courtney Cox's character acting like a 'Cougar' and dating younger men. However a few episodes into the series the show seemed to hit it's stride as the characters developed into those reflected on the show today. The cast has great chemistry, and their comedic plays on one another are fantastic. The show thankfully evolved into one that is about a tight-knit group of friends (the cul-da-sac crew!) and all of the ways their lives interact. There is quite a bit of talk about the show getting a new name in it's upcoming 3rd season, which I personally feel would be a blessing. This is a show that is about far more than 'Cougars' - and I think people fail to give it a fair chance because of the title. If you like shows with like Scrubs, Modern Family, and yes, Courtney's own little hit - Friends - I suggest you give Cougar Town a try.
