Storyline

Jules is a woman in her forties who's five months out of her marriage and being pressured by her best friends into getting "back out there" although finding the dating scene not her style. With a teenage son, who would be happier if she were to hide out in the house, she gets the business from him when she feels like she's allowed to have a life. Written by Moviedude1

Okay But Could Be Improved
23 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm more than half-way into the first episode and it could be way better if it cut the slapstick-style delivery of lines. The dialog would be far funnier if it were delivered in a staid fashion at least part of the time. It wouldn't hurt to copy a little bit of Nancy Botwin's style on Weeds. Weeds is successful for a reason.

Kudos to ABC for introducing a bunch of new comedies in a time when people need to laugh. And good for them for trying to have fun with a newer trend -- cougars.

But this show needs work. Namely the slapstick/silliness. The dialog is fine. The actors are fine (it is their delivery). I'm not fond of Cox's husband, but maybe if they clean his appearance up just a little bit and stop trying to make him completely over the top, he could turn into a really funny character.

I like seeing Cox in this role and hope the director(s) or whomever is responsible for this show will tell everyone to breathe more and talk more and screech a lot less.
