Courtney Cox, one of the most powerful actress in the history of television
I gotta say this show really surprised me...I'm not saying i didn't thought it'll be good, i just didn't expect it to be this good! This is a funny, sweet and kinda smart TV show about Jules, a woman who hits a wall when she turns 40, cause she realizes she's never done anything "crazy" during her youth, and it shows how much she regrets that. Of course, she's willing to do something about it, and with the help of her friend Laurie (played by an always endearing, Busy Phillips) and her old-time friend, Ellie (Christa Miller plays this funny woman character)she will start partying, drinking, among other things, to rediscover herself. Some other characters appear in the show (and make it so good too) such as Bobby (Jules's goofy ex husband, played by Brian Van Holt), Travis (Jules's son, played by young comedian Dan Byrd), Andy (Ellie's husband, played by clowny Ian Gomez), the exotic Barb (Carolyn Hennesy, a character that appears when less expected) and Grayson (Jules's "in front of" neighbor, very nice played by Josh Hopkins). But of course, all cast aside, i want to do a review that goes particularly dedicated to Courtney Cox Arquette: the actress that (in my opinion) gives us some of the most powerful performances of television. First, she gave us the obsessive organized Monica Geller, who was quite underestimated by the people in charge of the Emmys and the Golden Globes. But that was probably cause there were six very strong characters on that sitcom. Then, she gave us the polemical and unbreakable Lucy Spiller, who was also kinda underestimated, this time by the audience, given that the show got canceled. Let's not forget about her Scrubs's Taylor Maddox, and now she comes up with a very funny (and endearingly silly, if you will) Jules Cobbs, in Cougar Town. Well, what's left to say? Courtney Cox = TV queen!!
