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.Read more ›
"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.Read more ›
Unlike some sitcoms, this show does have a continuous story line along with each episode's own problem and situation that usually gets solved with in the episode. So it was really nice for watching it for the first time to be able to watch them all in order and all at once.
Cougar Town is about a 40 something recently divorced woman, Jules, who is played by Courtney Cox (Friends), who is discovering how to get through life after her divorce and getting back into the dating world. Jules is a real estate agent who has a younger girl working for her named Laurie (played by Busy Phillips- Dawson's Creek). Jules is not just Laurie's boss but also her really good friend and wants to show Jules how to have fun. Jules's best friend Ellie (played by Christa Miller- The Drew Carey Show, Scrubs) lives next door with her husband Andy (Ian Gomez- The Drew Carey Show) and their newborn son. Ellie's personality is just fantastic and she is absolutely hilarious and fun to watch. Laurie and Ellie have a very amusing budding relationship where they find each other quite annoying but have to learn to tolerate each other for the sake of Jules.Read more ›
