Review - Cougar Town Season 1 Episode 2 (S01E02) Into the Great Wide Open

Cougar Town has really grown on me since the pilot episode. I may actually continue watching. I still don't like the premise or the plot of the episodes; however, the acting on Cougar Town, especially by Courtney Cox is top notch, and the jokes are well-written. Bill Lawrence is very talented and I am looking forward to the Scrubs redux next year.

There's not much else to say about the show. Everyone involved in the show took a pretty stupid concept and turned it into a genuinely funny show. If I had to point out one bright spot, it would be Dan Byrd who plays Travis, Jules's son. He did a great job in the last episode and works well with Courtney Cox.

The plot was dumb again, but there were many funny moments. Jules doesn't have any good stories about her twenties and goes out partying. She gets wasted and her friends have all kind of things to say to her. I know it doesn't sound funny, and it's hard to convey the hilarity when the situation is so stupid, but just watch the first 2 episodes. You're guaranteed to see something you like.

Score: 9.0/10
