We’re starting a new segment here on Soap Trope, “For serious,” in which we will tell you what you should absolutely be watching/reading/listening to right now. For serious, we’re serious about this. Hence the name. Obvs.

For serious, you need to be watching Cougartown. Not only is it a funny sitcom with some heart, it’s by the dudes that made Scrubs. I mean, honestly, I don’t think I should actually have to say anything more, because Scrubs was a delightful, whimsical work of genius. And even though those showrunners have moved on, there’s still a fair amount of awesomeness to behold. For example, the fashion.

Please look at this amazing cat sweatshirt that Busy Phillips is wearing (yes, your girl Busy is on this show! FOR SERIOUS).

The only problem with this sweatshirt is that I don't own it.

Also it’s exciting to see how they slut up Courteney Cox’s outfits. (Should I be proud or sad that I knew to add the extra e to CC’s first name?) For example, I own this gingham shirt. It’s from J. Crew (Cougartown is on TBS now, so the wardrobe budget has probably been downgraded a bit.)

What up, boobs?

I tried to take a picture of myself wearing this shirt, you know, with two more buttons fastened? But then it just seemed like I was taking pictures of my boobs to upload to the Internet, and that didn’t seem like the best idea.

The one place where the wardrobe does splurge is Courteney’s nightgowns. Girl wore like six different ones in a recent episode, her rack on full display. And I’ve got to say, if my boobs still looked that good, I’d unbutton a little bit more too.

She's making a weird face, but trust me, the nightgown works.

In conclusion, won’t you watch Cougartown with me, so we can discuss the outfits at length? It will be so much fun.

Say it with me: FOR SERIOUS.
