I do love that one. And Alice In Wonderland was always my favorite children's story -- which only intensified as an adult after Jefferson Airplane released Grace Slick's "White Rabbit."
Cougar Town is the show I was going to cover. But it did not air in the fall. Finally, last night the latest episode aired.
Honestly, it was a little slow going at the start.
I wish they had not tried to give us back story and what is up with Ellie? what is up with Travis? etc. Instead, they should have just plowed forward with a storyline.
Bobby has lost a ton of weight. He was not a fat man to begin with. He was slim. But he has lost a ton of weight. He also got a new haircut and it looks really good on him. (Bobby is Jules' ex-husband.)
Laurie was probably in the funniest storyline -- with Andy and Ellie. Stan, Andy and Ellie's son, is a holy terror who -- over the break -- became a little monster with a hammer. Apparently, he gave Ellie a black eye. Andy and Ellie are scared of their toddler. Laurie finds that hysterical and also finds that Stan has a lot of Laurie in him. (Which frightens Ellie even more.)
Jules does not like that everyone finds her predictable. (Jules is the lead character -- played by Courtney Cox.) I wonder why the writers did not give Jules a wild storyline where she does something to prove she is not predictable?
I am glad the show is back on and it was not a bad episode. It just spent too long playing catch up and, honestly, kind of lost Jules. And she is the main character. When she was on, it was as if the writers had only thought of one scene and she got stuck playing it over and over.
Maybe because of the ending last season and the drama to that, they felt they had to come back with all these developments having happened off screen?
I do not have a clue.
But I am glad the show is back on and hope next Tuesday we get more Jules.
