End Season Roundtable: Cougar Town Season 1
Now I know what you’re thinking, you’re saying, “Jon, that show is called Cougar Town, of course I didn’t watch it,” and to that I have to say, Did you know that this show has easily some of the best comic timing on television? Did you know this show has no laugh track? Did you know this show was created by Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel? Bill Lawrence being the creator of Scrubs and Kevin Biegel being one of the writers on Scrubs?
Did you know this has some seasoned actors as well as rookie actors who are all really good at taking direction? Now I know, you didn’t watch it because of the Cougar aspect, but believe me, this is actually a very funny show done by some seasoned veterans, and it does help that they don’t have to rely on the Scrubs inner monologue. Did you know that the show’s producers even considered a name change primarily due to the fact that it isn’t following a premise of “cougars” and that many people didn’t watch it simply because of the title? Now the beginning of the show wasn’t all that great, the first couple episodes were trying to find their voice, but by the end of this season this show was among the best on television. And it has been picked up for a second season. If you have the heart and you loved Scrubs you might just want to give this one a chance, I’m still quite impressed at how much I like it now. It grows on you and it realistically gets better.
