TV Series Review
At the age of 40, real estate agent Jules Cobb has an 18-year-old son named Travis, a slacker ex-husband named Bobby and self-esteem that’s flagging as her body does the same. So—seeing as how this is TV—when her womanizing neighbor, Grayson, suggests she couldn’t bed a younger man to save her life, she takes on the "challenge."
Naturally, Travis finds his mother and her newly acquired nearly adolescent "catch" in the living room engaged in sexual activities of the oral sort. (They’re visually implied.)
This scene sets Cougar Town’s tone: sexually charged one-liners and scenes coupled with alcohol and profanity-laced jibes. Travis is usually shown to be wiser than all the adults—which should be no surprise considering the fact that Jules’ biggest goal is to relive the wild youth she missed out on by having a baby "way too young."
(Since when is 22 a horrible age to be married with children?)
