Storyline

Teenager Travis may live in Florida's leisurely Cougar Town, it's not easy being the son of his divorced parents: over-protective Jules and lazybones Bobby. Jules obsessively draws attention, wins sympathy and 'benignly' bosses everyone around. That includes her real estate office deputy Laurie, neighbor Ellie- who rules her devoted Cuban husband Andy Torres with iron hand- and in various modes hunky new neighbor and barman Grayson, all forming a quarrelsome gang. Written by KGF Vissers

I didn't expect to, but I really loved this show !!!
5 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hearing the name Cougar Town and thinking of Courtney Cox Arquette's recent plastic surgery, I didn't expect much from this show. To say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. I was driven to write a review (my first one after being a member for many years) because I really enjoy this little gem of a show and I wouldn't want to see it go off the air after only one season.

The characters work beautifully well together. There is a nice chemistry to the cast, but their rivalries and grudges are also appealing. Cox plays a great neurotic divorcée, but the character is quite different from her portrayal of Monica on Friends. Her son does a superb job as a deadpan role, probably the most down to earth of the entire cast of characters, he is great for one liners and comments on the awkwardness of his familial situation. The strangely devoted relationship between her ex-husband, Bobby and her best friend Ellie's husband Andy is hilarious and over the top but still believable. Meanwhile Ellie (Christa Miller a.k.a. Jordan from Scrubs a.k.a. Kate from Drew Carey) plays a slightly nicer version of her Scrubs character and does so with panache. It's actually nice to see her tone down the meanness and be more human, but still with the wittiness and bossiness of Jordan.

I've heard that Cougar Town has been garnishing some pretty scathing reviews and I can't really understand why. Not an episode has gone by where I didn't Laugh Out Loud several times. Honestly, I think it might be the second best show to debut in 2009- right behind Community, which would be extremely tough to beat.

Anyway, my overall grade ? A+ Very well done.
