is it the directors fault? Wow! it hurts. Has Cortney Cox always been a bad actor or is it the rest of the cast? It must be the worst thing on TV. Sad.
Cougar Town is really awful...

I was trying to watch it but man...the actors were all overacting...the dialog just kept getting more and more ridiculous. I mean...maybe these people aren't terrible actors...maybe it's the script or the director? A very attractive cast but the acting seems more than forced.

I just saw it for the first time ever tonight. I don't know what would make me feel worse, if all those ladies were made to get all that Botox by the producers of the show or if they chose to do that on their own.

I know Courtney is over botoxed, I didn't notice that anyone else was. Courtney could play a very old vampire...you know, the ones that always stay beautiful and never age...except they look like stone.

R5, has it right. I watched the 1st season and it was ok, but it became unwatchable when they made it "Friends" 10 years late. Only with zero likability for any of the characters. In fact they are all annoying. The Ellie character is the worst and not funny at all.

The first season was genius.
This season, not so much.
The tension between Jules and Grayson was terrific. Barb was featured more often. The annoying neighbor was seldom seen.
And Penny can is tired.
Maybe it's just a sophomore slump...

It's a cute show, though I find the modern day screwball patter (it's like a more bro-y take on the Gilmore Girls dialect) all the characters speak in a little much, but I guess if we're going to accept the premise that Cox's character (a realtor in what looks to be Newport Beach masquerading as Sarasota) would have enough money to keep herself in bathtubs full of red wine and botox given the real estate market these days, heightened speech isn't anything to get worked up about. I do find the posters on here defending the show as if it's "I, Claudius" ("it's for grown ups!") quite amusing.

I can't decide which actor CC is sleeping with in real life - it's one of them. I'm inclined to think it's not Josh Hopkins, since he seems like a dog and wouldn't want to be pinned down.

USA Today must have part ownership in this series b/c there is never a negative review. Busy Phillips is awesome and I will watch anything she is in. Courtney Cox is great as well. I just wish there was a better project for them.

It's fucking terrible. Really, watch it and be enlightened.
On a very basic level: they changed the premise half-way through the first season and have spent so long coyly mocking teh title etc it is tedious
They changed it to: Courtney and her neighbours sit in her house and drink red wine and quip incessantly. Of course it is totally different from Friends...
...One of them is her ex (not her brother, she has a kid, and a boyf)and Friends was better written on its' worst day than this shit.
Penny Can...LOL funny like a stroke
She was interesting in Dirt and edgy as fuck.

CC has always been a terrible actress. The only thing going for her until maybe the second season of Friends was that she used to be a very attractive girl. Sometime during the long run of that show, she morphed into a super skinny, perma-tanned harridan. A damn shame because she looked great with just a little more weight on her.

It's just a frivolous show, with 40something adults celebrating their empty lives. Not the first of its kind. I tried being patient with it; but not worth it. (Was anyone here mourning last year's "Emmy snub" of Courteney Cox?)

Courteney was a wooden post on Friends, and she still is on Cougar Town. Not funny, never was. And now her face is a freakish Botox mask that hurts to look at.
Why is she still working, with all that Friends money? I would vacation and do charity work for the rest of my life.

The actress who plays Ellie should be grateful she's married to the show creator/producer. No work was ever done on humanizing her. She's just a bitch character played by a mediocre actress. If they got someone talented, than maybe we would see more sides of her. But no...
I imagine she was one of the primary reasons the show was cancelled in its primary ABC run.
She radiates nothing but unlikeable bitch, and she has SUCH a prominent role on the show.

I concur, R47. That "our title sucks" shit was so played out. And they never once ever acknowledged who came up with it. Was it the studio, network, or the hack-driven writing staff?
I guess "Unlikeable Assholes With Industry Connections" was already taken by a by a CW show in development.
