Cougar Town Review: "Everything Man"

by at . Comments

Wow, we're glad that Jules continues to meddle in peoples' affairs, but we're not sure how long we could have handled a pursey-whipped Grayson on Cougar Town.  Wow, that really is a fun expression.  I do hope it catches on!

Sheryl Crow / Grayson Duet

At least when Grayson finally manned up, it was nice to see him with the gorgeous Sheryl Crow.  We were also glad to see the show take advantage of her singing and guitar skills by having her play a duet of "Everything Man" with Grayson.   Though, wow, it really makes you realize how terrible Grayson is at guitar slash singing.

So did any other Scrubs med fans out there?  Well in light of his other show being canceled, Bill Lawrence is clearly giving a little work for his supporting actors.  Daryl, the tile repair guy, was the cheesy security guard from the new Scrubs.  Unfortunately, he was still just as unfunny to us.

Speaking of unfunny, how often can we make Andy's plot line revolve around not getting some from Ellie.  Unless it was all an excuse for Bobby to call masturbating, "making shower babies," we weren't sure of the whole plot line.  But if it was, well done.  That was a pretty amazing line.  Possibly funnier than pursey-whipped.

The primary story line of Grayson and Sara's relationship with Jules' constant need to meddle was definitely the strongest of the three, but overall the plot was a little weak for what we've come to expect out of Cougar Town.

Travis' love life with Kylie has definitely been pushed to the back burner, and it was cute to see these two again.  Though, wow, they need to give his girl some lines.  She's just a quiet little cute thing in the background.  Well, I guess that does explain how nerdy, awkward Travis could land her.  I mean come on, doggy Travis has more game than this kid!

Overall it was just an average episode with enough great Cougar Town lines to save it.  Our favorite ones are after the jump.

Jules: I cannot wait for this bathroom to be done. In fact, put it in your calenders because I'm going to have a bathroom warming party.
Grayson: Can I bring Sarah to what sounds like the worst party ever? | permalink
Jules: I can't believe your school makes you do photography projects. It's like they cater to the weird, artsy fartsy kids.
Travis: I started the photography club.
Jules: Cool.
Travis: Nice save. | permalink
Jules: Grayson is totally pursey whipped. That is really gonna catch on. pursey magnet, pursey hound.
Laurie: Pursey cat.
Ellie: That's not how it works. | permalink
Bobby: You need to get place with there's no sexual desire left whatsoever.
Andy: I can probably do that, if I spend a little a private time with you know myself.
Bobby: There's nothing wrong with making shower babies. It's not a sin if you're doing it for love. | permalink
