Music Monday: Cougarville

What it is, reader!

I caught the first episode of the new Courtney Cox show, Cougar Town. What can I tell you? It just wasn't good. Too bad, I kinda liked Courtney as Monica on Friends but this show is dopeyville. You can watch it on Hulu, here.

In other cougar news, I just read that the hot hot Mary Louise Parker is dating some youngster named Charlie Mars. I had not heard of him, but he appears to be a Jason Mraz/Jack Johnson, guy-with-a-guitar singer. Mary Louise also stars in his video, Dark Side:

I found this video neither steamy nor interesting and the song, a snoozefest. Perhaps one does need to be high to enjoy it?

All cougarness, or cougarity, aside, a question arises: she is no doubt teh hotness, but why does Mary Louise so embody passivity? Her lethargic character on Weeds is making the show nearly unwatchable (saved by Andy and Doug), but watching this video, I wonder--is this actually just her?

WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT? I hope that isn't the real Mary Louis Parker! Lame.

Yeah, it's like she's always playing that part from Fried Green Tomatoes. "Idgeee...ehhhh....uhhh," droop, flop.

Batwinger, YES! I totally forgot about her role in that movie. Also very passive and in dire need of rescue. Hmmmmm...
