Please Everyone Watch Cougar Town Tomorrow Night!!

I have literally been looking forward to tomorrow night for months!  Why, you ask?  Could it be I have special Valentine’s Day plans? Hell no!  I have been waiting for the third season of Cougar Town FOREVER!!!!

“Ewwww, Cougar Town?  Isn’t that that show about old ladies who sleep with younger guys?”  That is probably what most of you are thinking, but the answer is NO NO NO!!!!  It is in my opinion, the best show on tv right now.  It is definitely my favorite comedy show of all time (tied with Arrested Development).  This show is so amazing… makes me literally laugh out loud and cry in the same episode.  I love all of the characters and totally want them to adopt me into their Cul-de-Sac Crew.

So, for those of you newbies out there, Cougar Town DID start out as a show about Jules (Courtney Cox), who was recently divorced, dating younger guys.  That only lasted about six episodes.  Around episode seven of the first season, it really became about Jules’ group of friends and family and all the hilarious misadventures they get up to.

It is by the same lovely people who brought you Scrubs, and I know a lot of you out there are Scrubs fans.  This show has several familiar faces from that series popping up on occasion and is just as funny (in my opinion a lot more funny) than that beloved series.  You all know how fickle I am about tv shows.  I break up with them at the drop of a hat, so professing my love for a show is not something I do every day.  I own both seasons 1 and 2 on DVD, and I have literally watched disc 3 of season 1 at least six times.

It is hard to describe what I love about the show, because it is just so perfect that it is difficult to pick out one thing.  I think I would have to say it is the running gags and inside jokes that are in all of the episodes.  Grayson’s guitar, Big Joe/Big Carl, Jules’ finger guns, Penny Can, and my favorite–Ellie’s imaginary tip of the hat that no one seems to understand.  But don’t let that fool you into thinking that you can’t pick up on the show right now.  I have heard that they specifically created the first episode of season 3 to kind of introduce new viewers, so PLEASE WATCH TOMORROW!!  Watch with your valentine if you have to, I promise you will not be disappointed.

Here are a couple of videos to show you how awesome it is.  One of them is the season 3 highlight reel, which contains a lot of spoilers, but for some reason I am not too worried about it.  Even if I know what is going to happen I know it will still be hilarious!!

Here is a scene from the end of my favorite episode.  I totally want to hang out with all of these people!!!!  And I LOVE that they make Travis and Smith carry the keg 🙂

Here is a video of Grayson’s top ten moments:

And finally, here is the season 3 highlight reel:  I think I’ve watched it 4 times 🙂

So anyway, that is what I will be doing tomorrow night at 7:30 on ABC.


P.S.  Sorry, I haven’t posted in so long, hopefully this will be the first of many posts on here.

    Jen, I thought of you when I saw this. Hope you’ll be able to make it.

      Aaaarrrrggghhh!!!! Of course it has to be on a Tuesday night in the summer. Those are Family Nights at the library and I usually work 12 hour days. But, if I know far enough ahead of time, I just might be able to get someone to cover for me….

      Thanks for the heads up!

    Jen, I watched Cougar Town for you the other night! It was my first episode, but I wasn’t completely lost. It was cute and pretty funny. I can’t say I am a dedicated watcher now, but I will probably set my dvr for a few more at least. When I saw the title card with the show’s title and an * and note, I had to look up the show on Wikipedia. I love writers who are not above fixing what maybe doesn’t work so well. I think if they can change the name, they might get some new viewers. We need more well-written, smart shows and less dumb ones!

    Awww Jill, that’s so sweet that you watched it 🙂

    I will admit that I did not think that episode was the funniest one they have ever done. I wasn’t a fan of the Travis/Bobby storyline, or the baby storyline. But the ending made it totally worth it 🙂 Hopefully the next few episodes will be more like what I am used to.
