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. Written by
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 »
Well, I see no one else likes it. Oh well. I think its hilarious. Maybe a little much for basic television, but on cable it would be awesome. I think it's really funny. I don't think it's offensive at all. Just because we don't feel like we relate to a character doesn't mean that they are offensive. I'm from Texas. Have you ever seen how they portray us on television. They act like we are all how do I put this, "Big ol' country bumpkins that say ya'll every other word and wear cowboy hats and belt buckles as large as our state, and that every word we say has to have some southern twang to it". It's a television show. It's funny. For once can we just let one show survive at least one season. I've already lost Lipstick Jungle and Samantha Who.
