“It’s funny how Cougar Town started as a show about a woman dating a younger man, and now it’s kind of turning into an ensemble show about a bunch of friends and their misadventures.”
NEXT EPISODE PROMO
Emotions are at a high as the drama escalates in Secret Life, and from experience we know that secrets, like Amy’s baby John, are bound to pop out sooner or later. And this time, it seems it’s more than just Ricky who knows something everyone else doesn’t. Who, by the way, is…gone?
So…Travis is looking for a little night out on the town for his Valentine’s Day party. And even though Jules had her little talk with Bobby about good-guy/bad-guy parenting, he’s not willing to let that come between the camaraderie he and Travis have going on. That’s because in Bobby’s mind, this is good parenting!
So we know Grayson’s negative view of Valentine’s Day. But just how negative is it? “It’s a fake holiday. Created by candy companies to prey on sad and lonely women.” So who’s the lucky lonely woman tonight? Apparently Jules, as she opts to spend this “fake” holiday with Grayson, as “just friends”.
According to Manny, “The universe is cold and love-less.” Despite this SAD view, Valentine’s Day is here, and everybody’s got a plan for love. Jay – to take Gloria out for a romantic evening going to see…a comedian.
Take a trip with me back to a month or so ago, when we first found the casting call spoiler for this particular episode. In my head I kept guessing at the comedian they were looking to cast for Jay and Gloria’s “romantic” Valentine’s outing. No more guessing now. It’s David Brenner.
I think you are simply going to *heart* this oh-so-special Valentine’s episode of Modern Family. Scratch that. I know you’re going to love it. It’s going to have those chocolatey-sweet moments…but also those moments that, like flowers sometimes will, cause you sneezing fits.
No, it’s not Jules. Or Laurie. Although at first I thought the latter would be cute, except now I can’t get the image of Laurie and Travis hiding together in Dale’s closet out of my head. Now there’s an idea: Cougar Laurie!
Who else really loved “Wheels” in the first season half, show of hands? Come on, I know you’re out there…. If you’re a fan of the diva-off – wheelchair-turning – Quinn-baby-fun that is “Wheels”, then The Ausiello Files has it you might like a certain episode in the second half, too.
Sure, things turn ugly between Ellie and Jules but meanwhile, at least there’s a nice-looking tennis teacher to ogle. But enough about the cat-fight, what’s happening with our Cougar guys?
