Cougar Town Review: "Breakdown"

at .

There are not many comical shows that could follow the ingeniousness that is Modern Family, but Cougar Town not only is able to, but does it brilliantly!

We love how all the characters have come together to make a funny, but lovable gang - that loves to drink filled-to-the-top glasses of wine. Last night, the group all together had the best quote we've heard in a long time:

Jules: All together now -
Everyone: If it's on the internet, it must be true!
Jules: Exactly now, everyone sip please.
Travis: Afternoon booze bags. What are we celebrating now?
Jules: Science. | permalink

Even Laurie and Ellie have become close, well closer than they once were. We found it touching to see that Ellie cared enough to find out what was bugging Laurie and even fixed the problem without her knowing it. Really, each person in this group brings something different and zany that we have grown to love.

We find it odd that Jules and Grayson wanted to keep their relationship a secret from the group - and were able to pull it off! How strangely funny was it that Travis sat on his face and didn't even notice it! That was a bit much in our books.

Travis and Jules

Jules overly attached relationship to Travis was clearly shown in this week's episode in a couple of ways. For one, the shirt. Really, who in their right mind would do that? And the flashback of Travis as a kid not being able to play football because he got a scratch. She really knows how to play the overly over protective mom to a tee.

Now that Travis will be heading to college, what will Jules do? Thankfully for the show and Jules, it is only twenty minutes away and we guarantee she will be showing up to his dorm and the most inconvenient times. We just cant wait to see it!

Off topic, how awesome was it that they actually used a picture of Courtney Cox dancing with Bruce as a flashback into how cool Jules was in high school!? We think this minute detail is why we love this show so much!

The last scene where Travis says screw the speech and goes to chase after the red balloon did give us a little tear in our eye. We just love that kid! What did you think of "Breakdown"?
