EW's Morning Bite: And the best sound bite from last night is...

“If there’s anything we’ve learned from Michelle Pfeiffer in Dangerous Minds or Sandy Bullock in The Blind Side or Hilary Swank in that movie nobody ever saw, it’s that all you need to fix minority problems is a really pretty white woman.”

'Cougar Town': The Pig Trials

First, let’s make one thing clear: I think I would watch a show called The Pig Trials. Particularly if the lawyers were humans and the bailiffs were horses. And I fully support any world in which the maximum sentence is bacon. But I digress. Last night’s “Southern Accents” wasn’t just about the pig trials. It was about Jules letting go of her hatred of Grayson’s baby mama Holly, and learning to accept her for who she is.

'Cougar Town': Mo money mo problems

The road to marriage hasn’t been an easy one for Jules and Grayson. Their most recent speed bump came in the form of money issues. Grayson assumed they’d combine their finances, but Jules wasn’t too thrilled about possibly supporting Grayson’s little “whoopsies.” So where does Jules go to deal with all her relationship issues? Her therapist, Lynn, of course!


'Cougar Town': The episode with a cougar!

Thanks to Travis and his desire to make a name for himself on campus, last night’s Cougar Town featured an actual cougar! Okay, so it was a cougar statue that Travis intended to steal. But still. I think it counts. Trav enlisted the help of Bobby and Chick — the real masterminds — to commit the crime, but Sig and Kevin were also accomplices. And although I’m pretty sure the felony won’t actually skyrocket Travis to big man on campus status, I am rather pleased with the cougar crossover. “Why does this school even have a cougar? Nothing here has anything to do with cougars.” Well played, Cougar Town writers, well played.


'Cougar Town': Simon Says

Oh, ABC. You’re such a tease! You finally brought back Cougar Town only to shelve it again for Dancing With the Stars. One of the show’s creators, Kevin Biegel, joked today on Twitter that at this rate season 3 would last until Christmas. “Christmas 2015.” If Cougar Town can manage to survive that long, I’ll gladly pound some grape. But otherwise, let’s try to keep to a regular schedule, ABC.

But enough of that. In last night’s “You Can Still Change Your Mind,” Grayson began his adventures in parenthood by babyproofing the house for Jill Tampa. The babyproofing provided a safe environment for Jill Tampa, but Jules couldn’t seem to outsmart the cabinetry. And thus, the trash sink was born. READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town': Everybody Loves Graymond

Something so big happened on last night’s Cougar Town that they titled the episode “Something Big!” Clever writers. Anyway, the road to marriage isn’t an easy one, particularly when you’re packing a lot of extra baggage. So off to therapy Jules and Grayson went to make sure their relationship was completely baggage free before tying the knot. Therapy was a success, but then they hit a pretty big speed bump when they learned Grayson had (gasp!) fathered a child with a former girlfriend/clubbing partner.

'Cougar Town': Operation Kiss the Girl

Cougar Town is really on a roll this season. And last night’s “A One Story Town” was easily the best episode yet. I guess good things really do come to people who wait nine months for their favorite show to return. But before we get down to business, we have to set up the episode: It was all one giant nod to the 1966 movie, Gambit. The film, starring Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine, features characters Harry Dean and Nicole Chang executing a brilliantly planned robbery. Only this foolproof scheme of theirs is only in Harry’s head, and actually still in the planning stage. (Ed. note/hidden gem: If you look closely, you could even see Gambit on the theater marquee in the plaza early in the episode.)


'Cougar Town': Did you wine-watch 'Braveheart'?

Penny Can! It took four episodes, but my favorite TV game returned last night to the special Courteney Cox-directed episode of Cougar Town. The main story featured a group of bicycle-riding hoodlums that were terrorizing the cul-de-sac crew, particularly Jules and Andy. The bicycle boys were going through their yards to get to the new mall behind the neighborhood. And they were trouble. They’re the kind of people who write “don’t” on stop signs, call anyone over 20 grandpa, and make garden gnomes gay. Wait, that last one was Jules. Anyway, they picked the wrong neighborhood to mess with.

But their plan for revengeance got sidetracked when Andy got offended that Jules wouldn’t let him be king of the neighborhood. He even started burrowing, guys! He’d completely resigned himself to being the world’s bitch, but Jules allowed him this one thing. And thus, cul-de-sac Braveheart was born. And let’s be honest, it was a much better plan than Officer Pumpkinhead. I cannot even put into words how hilarious this parody was. Andy on a fake horse = me dying. So funny.

Meanwhile, Laurie and Ellie were discussing the pros and cons of Internet nudity. It’s too risky, Ellie said. Laurie’s rebuttal? “The whole world saw Paris Hilton’s Berts and Ernie and now she’s rich!” Set. Match. To help prove her point, Laurie decided to send a skin pic to Wade, an Army guy in Afghanistan whom she met on Twitter. (Don’t worry. She kept it classy: “Covered up my berts. Single nerped him. Just a peek.”) This began a whirlwind Twitter romance in which Wade sent her a virtual promise ring, and she returned the favor by sending him her social security number. Ellie still doubted, but after reading their Twitter conversations she had a change of heart. Laurie and Wade are just so good together!

Travis also had a change of heart. He was focused on his photography class. Bobby was focused on Travis’ photography teacher, Angie (guest star/Scrubs actress Sarah Chalke). Travis did what he could to keep them apart, but finally caved and introduced the pair. So now they’re all Bobby and Angie sitting in a tree and Scrubs fans, like myself, are happy for another reunion.
