I love TV. More importantly, US TV. When I sort of dated this guy a few months back, I realized that one of the dealbreakers for me when it comes to dating is not knowing and not liking US TV shows. He reasoned out that US shows are all fluff and no substance. I reasoned out that there's nothing more entertaining and inspiration than a wide range of shows, including Lost, NCIS, CSI, House, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother and Chuck, and intriguing and interesting than my roster of high-entertainment value shows like Glee and Gossip Girl. He said he'd rather watch not watch anything. What a waste of European looks.
My latest discovery (and addiction!) is Cougar Town, starring Courteney Cox (the original cougar, IMO), Christa Miller, and Busy Philipps. It chronicles the life of Jules Cobb, real estate agent, mother and divorcee extraordinaire. It shows her misadventures as she reenters the dating scene, albeit weirdly, in the presence of her not-so-estranged ex-husband. Busy Philipps play her notoriously flirty subordinate and together with Ellie (Miller), they traverse the path of cougardom with Jules. Oh and her neighbor, divorcee Grayson is super hot, too!
Have I told you I love the word "cougar?" In my opinion, it's the one word in the modern English dictionary that is actually better than its male counterpart, the DOM. Older women preying on younger men are called cougars. Older men preying on younger women are simply Dirty Old Men. I love it!
