Cougar Town Recap: Series Premiere

by at . Comments

Last night, Courtney Cox brought a whole new kind of sexy cougar on ABC's debut of the new Bill Lawrence sitcom, Cougar Town.  So was the gorgeous forty-something former friend able to make cougars funny?

Well based on the pilot, we have some mixed feelings.  Both Cox and Christa Miller, who plays her best friend, Ellie, were amazing in their roles and provided plenty of laughs.  Meanwhile, no one else from the rest of the cast really won us over.

However, as huge Scrubs fans we're going to stand behind anything Lawrence does and give this show another chance next week.  How about you guys?

Cougar Town Quotes

Laurie: Jules told me never to ask, but why do you call me Jellybean?
Ellie: Well JB, when Jules first hired you I thought you were so simple minded she could convince you that Jellybeans were more valuable than gold and subsequently pay you in Jellybeans. This concept was eventually shorted into your nickname, Jellybean.

Grayson: Shall we?
Jules: Indeed!
