  • Another very enjoyable episode!

    I thought the storlyline in this episode was not garbage, as this show has produced in the past, but instead, it was actually quite unique, and very enjoyable to watch.

    I thought the sepisode was definitely quite funny, particularly when Jules began attempting to learn Mandarin! THat was funny all right, and I really enjoyed that scene!

    Overall, the storyline and the humour combined well to generate a very enjoyable all-round episode, and I ereally liked every minute of it! This show is certainly on the right track to success!

    I'd highly recommend this episode of Cougar Town, and I hope it continues this way!moreless
  • A new wine salesperson sets her sites on Grayson, but is he up for it? Everyone especially Elle is on Jules about her drinking in a fun way, but then she gets serious and stops drinking driving everyone away. Bobby gets a dog!moreless

    A fun episode with some weaknesses. Sheryl Crow shows up as Sara, a wine salesmen selling Grayson's business supplies. She's good and she's also interested in Grayson. Unfortunately he has no idea how to act with a real women as he hasn't really been with one since his divorce. A very funny sequence of events unfolds.

    The other two plots were related to Jules and Elle/Laurie and Bobby with a dog and Andy's reaction.

    Jules decides to quit drinking which in the end drives everyone else crazy. Of course Jules is a little OCD to begin with which makes you wonder what she becomes sober? Hmmm...

    Andy gets jealous when Bobby gets a large dog and he is afraid he will take his place as his best friend. Tiring sequences occur related to Andy versus the dog with the dog winning most of the time.

    Not the best episode of the season, but still entertaining. Jules is a little crazed regularly. No alcohol for this character could be a disaster. Hmmm, I wonder what we're teaching people? Self medicate! Thanks for reading...moreless
