    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.

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

    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.

    The humor is so lighthearted, the show practically skips. [20 Feb 2012, p.48]

    I like Cougar Town. Sometimes I even love it. Great characters, great chemistry. But sometimes, especially last season, the writers got too wrapped up in gimmicks like penny can, instead of the real relationships between their characters. Don't get me wrong, Penny Can was great, then they overdid it and ruined it. At least for me. This first episode of season three promises to get us back to stories about the characters. The first ten minutes fell a little flat for me, but it picked up from there. I'm definitely going to keep watching. Full Review »

    This is the worst season yet for me. It lacks the quick wit of the first two seasons, and has been just downright awful. Still, it is better than most sitcoms out there, and I have faith its next season will be better than this one. Full Review »

    I quite liked the first 2 seasons of this show but now it is starting to wear thin. 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.
