    Cougar Town returns with its wit, silliness and good-heartedness fully intact.

    Cox remains a very engaging lead, and her supporting cast is rock solid.

    If you've given Cougar Town a real shot and found that it's not for you, fair enough; but if you already love the goofy-sweet-smart flavor of this show, you'll find a lot to like about the new season.

    Witty and wacky--but emphasizing the wacky above all--this sharp-tongued, sweet-souled sitcom picks up without losing a (heart)beat.

For anyone still not watching please get on board. Lawrence and his team have crafted a gem of a show that encompasses everything about daily life into a sitcom. The characters are fun and lovable, and with both guy and girl dynamics it appeals to everyone. Forget the title and keep enjoying the best writing on TV. Expand

Their first season got off with a shaky start due to the slight controversy of it's title. But if you just get past that, you will find yourself watching a tv show about friendship through every situation and loving these hilarious, well balanced and dynamic characters. Every single one of this characters has their own role on the show, and each adds a different twist with their own specific humours, that somehow manages to appeal to everyone. I strongly recommend it, it's abnormally funny. I just wish i had these kind of friends! Expand

Ellie's meanness used to be amusing but now it just feels nasty and desperate. Jules' quirky sweetness used to be endearing and entertaining but now it just feels forced. On top of this - Christa Miller and Courtney Cox's faces can't make expressions anymore. I find myself facially emoting while I am watching them - like I am subconsciously willing their stone masks into some kind of animation. It was fun for a while but now I'll be moving on. Expand
