Well, Cougar Town is back, and if you were worried about the switch to TBS messing up the show inany way, be calm. “Blue Sunday” gives us the same Cougar Town we know and appreciate. Beyond a few winks on the title card and at the beginning (“Telling our stories to each other, to the world!”), and a montage of wine pouring just to set the viewer straight on what this show is really about, the show hops right back in to the cozy world of the Cul de Sac Crew.
Of course, the main thrust of the plot deals with Grayson and Jules being a newly married couple, and while the initial premise of everything in the first week setting a precedent is funny enough, I think things really take off once Jules falls into her “blue vortex.” There’s something so perfectly Cougar Town-y about Jules becoming that upset over something that happened in a dream that I couldn’t help but to love it. Even Ellie takes it completely seriously, and her line to Grayson, “I’d apologize, but I know how to behave in a dream,” might have been the biggest laugh of the night for me.
