I honestly don’t have much to add about Cougar Town since I reviewed the first episode. It’s exactly the same show in every way. It’s pretty funny, but never really reaching any great highs. It tries to address certain truths about being a newly single woman in her 40s, trying to date younger men. It has a decent cast, apart from Cox, who could do with being a bit subtler. It’s very watchable but not addictive.

You’ll like it, you might even like it a lot, you might even empathise with it, but I don’t think you’re going to love it. But whatever episode you watch, you’re bound to enjoy it, at least a little bit, I reckon.

Carusometer rating: 2
Rob’s prediction: Already picked up for a full season. It could continue for as long as Scrubs, but it’ll probably run out of ideas by the end of the second season at the latest.
