Yawn. I am bored. The formula is obvious. The actresses’ faces don’t move.
When Cougar Town debuted a couple seasons ago, it made me laugh. First, I think I am apparently the age of cougars and the whole cougar thing was totally at its pop culture apex. I liked the show’s irreverent, self-deprecating humor and the cast had some nice chemistry.
Now, I think ‘all-things cougar’ are rather gross. The plastic surgery thing, the overdone attempts to be ageless, the whole ‘we are just as blatantly messed-up as men in the midst of mid-life crisis’ stuff…I am over it. It is so unflattering.
The entire premise of Cougar Town seems to be: “Look at us, we won’t grow up. We drink red wine like its water. Jealous?” Actually, no, and it really isn’t all that funny anymore to watch 40-somethings behave like 20-somethings.
Forty isn’t the new 25, no matter how many facial fillers and lip enhancers one employs, and Courtney Cox’s manic, controlling and anxiety-ridden Jules is just a little too reminiscent of Monica Geller from Friends for my liking.
Gosh, am I harsh or what?! Bottom line: In my opinion, Cougar Town will be leaving town…soon.
Until Next Time…
