DVD Review: ‘Cougar Town’ With Courteney Cox Deserves Another Chance

Chicago – If you’re like most people, you probably wrote off “Cougar Town” after hearing the overly simplified concept or watching the incredibly sporadic first few months of the ABC series. You should take another look. The Courteney Cox vehicle, now on DVD, changed gears so radically that there’s a special feature about the mid-season shift in tone on the DVD and I have a feeling this series could improve even more in season two, finding a rhythm that it could maintain for years to come.

DVD Rating: 3.5/5.0

Cougar Town” stars the very gifted Cox as a single mom named Jules dealing with the pitfalls of being a 40-year-old woman in Florida in 2010. After being recently divorced, she manages weekly issues of motherhood, friendship, career, and dating.

[TV] Cougar Town: The Complete First Season

The final seasons of Scrubs were a dark time for the series. The shark had long been jumped over; Jd’s musings were no longer endearing, as they’d passed into tiresome and old by about the fifth season; Eliot’s neuroticism didn’t develop in any particular direction and the character became an overly repetitive joke about overly self-conscious people with parental issues; Cox’s once hilarious rants had deteriorated as for some reason he was the one character the writers felt needed to grow and so as he evolved to embrace his fatherly status, his bright moments vanished; and the marriage of Turk and Carla ceased to be anything new by about season 3, making them the control relationship against which everyone else’s was judged. The show, as a whole, ran out of gas halfway through and coasted for as long as possible. Think this sounds a bit harsh?

Cougar Town The Complete First Season DVD Review And Giveaway

To make it as a TV series, you simply must evolve. Your characters have to develop, and eventually, a show ought to only bear a certain family resemblance to the first few episodes. Cougar Town‘s first season put the most rapid fire treatment to this theory in the history of television, and by the time all was said and done, the entire first season was akin to one, enormous pilot episode.

Back when I reviewed the show as a fall preview, I disliked it immensely. It tried too hard with its gags, and forced its title down my throat in a way that I found borderline sad. A little bit of trivia you’ll get from the DVD bonus features is that the word “cougar” has never been used in the show, but it didn’t need to be. A fairly boring vanity piece, the show’s best hope was its supporting cast,
