The new episodes of Cougar Town starts up on January 7, 2014 fifth season. The gang of friends are having fun, hanging out, and doing a lot of drinking in these episodes. Courteney Cox plays the role of Jules Cobb who is now remarried and still loves drinking wine. She's basically the main character of the show even though there are a bunch of other cast members always appearing throughout the show. Before now I had never watched this show, it didn't seem like a show I would be much interested in but now that I've watched it I found that I did enjoy it.
In these three episodes I was able to follow along with what was going without really needing any sort of back story. Considering that I've missed the first four seasons I thought I wouldn't know what was happening but that's not the case. Cougar Town is formatted so that the shows are self contained with it's own plot line but there are still moments that are carried over from past shows. Yet those moments are giving enough explanation or is made so they are understandable for anyone (like me) who hasn't seen the show. It's large cast of characters actually work well for the development and humor. I liked that there are a lot of different people that interact with each other. It makes the show have a little more reality to it as well as opens up areas for some good jokes. Each of the actors play there role well, they also have a good chemistry with each other on the screen.
This was a funny show, more funny then what I thought it was going to be. It's not bringing a tear to my eye funny but there more a few moments that I did laugh out loud and I had a smile the rest of the time while watching. The large cast is part of the reason the show is good because the characters don't stay on screen for long enough to get bored with them. Each character comes into the scene, does their lines, then is replaced by the next character. This is part of the well format that I mentioned because the flow of the show is smooth allowing the characters to go in and out of scenes while keeping the interesting and funny. It's not a witty show but it's a fun show with good lines, good characters, and a good cast.
