Image Credit: Michael Desmond/ABCWe couldn’t let last night’s episode of Cougar Town pass without noting that even after it was at its most crazy, we still cheered when Grayson finally told Jules that he loves her. Yes, we had to sit through the Diet Dr. Pepper product placement (having Bobby think DDP would be his golf sponsor if he wore a hat and polo shirt with the logo was fairly good integration) and Jules accidentally killing animals (a dove, a squirrel, and a lizard), but it was all worth it. Jules questioned whether she and Grayson could be compatible if they handled the animals’ deaths so differently — she was upset, he wasn’t — and rather than producers using it as excuse to break them up and build back some sexual tension, Grayson eventually told her it’s their differences that he likes best. In front of the cul-de-sac crew, who he had gathered for a triple burial in the front yard, he told Jules how he feels about her. I cheered. Complete with arm-pumping.
So, let’s hear it for Cougar Town not being afraid to keep Jules and Grayson together and progressing like two adults who genuinely enjoy each other, and for having faith in the fact that this crew will always have issues that can divide them. Let’s also hear it for Big Carl, and for Laurie’s Bug Hookers pitch. I wish that would be the subject of the Cougar Town webisode currently on abc.com, but then again, I can’t see Diet Dr. Pepper sponsoring that. Watch Andy’s Dreams — a trailer for a Rocky (IV)-inspired sports film, Playing for Pennies. It’s from the studio that brought you Wild Hogs. Ah, well, maybe next week — a new webisode premieres every Wednesday.
