Storyline

Teenager Travis may live in Florida's leisurely Cougar Town, it's not easy being the son of his divorced parents: over-protective Jules and lazybones Bobby. Jules obsessively draws attention, wins sympathy and 'benignly' bosses everyone around. That includes her real estate office deputy Laurie, neighbor Ellie- who rules her devoted Cuban husband Andy Torres with iron hand- and in various modes hunky new neighbor and barman Grayson, all forming a quarrelsome gang.

Trivia

Sam Lloyd's character from Scrubs (2001), Theodore "Ted" Buckland, also appears on Cougar Town (2009). The first time when the cul-de-sac crew travels to Hawaii to bring Travis back. Ted tells Jules that he came to Hawaii because his girlfriend Gooch, who was also on Scrubs (2001), left him for Hooch, a surgeon from Sacred Heart Hospital where Scrubs (2001) takes place. Ted appears a second time with his band "The Worthless Peons", who also appeared several times on Scrubs (2001). See more »

great show
17 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show has a brilliantly funny writing staff, employs a fantastically talented cast and is an all around entertaining show. The characters all compliment each other so well that the jokes and transitions look seamless.

The dynamic between Courtney Cox's show-centric Jules and everyone else in the cast is so perfectly executed. Busy Phillips' Lori, is one of the funniest relevant characters seen on TV today. Christa Miller adds as much to this show as she did and continues to do on Scrubs. As Ellie, she is cross between her character on Scrubs and June Cleaver.

Although the formula is very similar to Scrubs, there is no reason why that should be a bad thing. Scrubs was a very innovative show when it began and now Cougar Town is following in its hilarious footsteps.

The men in the Cougar Town cast are also so strong. Brian Van Holt's comedic timing, Josh Hopkin's character complexities, Dan Byrd's wide eyed innocence and Ian Gomez's slapstick all work so well with the rest of the cast's abilities.

The only negative in my eyes is the shows title-only because it throws the men off with thoughts of a Sex in the City, Desperate Housewives, Lipstick Jungle hybrid. Men need to have an open mind and not judge a show by its title. They will end up realizing that this show is just plain funny, regardless of gender. Men will definitely enjoy this show on the same level or even more than woman.
