Tv Season Info

Season 5 for the cul-de-sac crew finds them adjusting to the full-blown romance between Laurie (Busy Philipps) and Travis (Dan Byrd), but like everything else for this gang, the news goes down fine with a little more wine. Meanwhile, Bobby (Brian Van Holt) and Andy (Ian Gomez) hit it big when Penny Can becomes a global sensation, but Bobby's newfound wealth is a good time for Grayson (Josh Hopkins) to remind him of all his unpaid bar tabs; Andy organizes a 5km race to salvage his reputation as mayor after an embarrassing article runs in the paper; Grayson must be careful what he wishes for after landing a role in a commercial; Laurie and Ellie (Christa Miller) pose as a couple to get Stan into a new school; Chick's Alzheimer's symptoms prompt Jules (Courteney Cox) to urge him to look for a house in her neighborhood; and the crew learn that Tom (Bob Clendenin) has a model of their neighborhood in his garage—complete with lifelike dolls. Guest stars include Matthew Perry and Ken Jenkins.

It's a pleasant surprise to still have the Cul-de-Sac Crew around - and to have the show still feel as clever and energized as it does.

The show's fifth season seems to have slowed things down ever so slightly though, allowing for a more relaxed feel instead of its typical manic pace. But Cougar Town's beloved absurdity is all in place.

The cul-de-sac crew is back for another bottle of wine!

An excellent start to the season and one that signals that the creators may have more of an idea about what they're doing this time out of the gate.

Jan 9, 2014 | Rating: 7.4/10 | Full Review…

Season five lacks the recognizable momentum of prior seasons. This year has been an overall enjoyable run for the show, with consistent laughs and a few gut-punches here and there, yet there hasn't been a concrete arc you can point to

Audience Reviews for Cougar Town: Season 5

Season 5 is already beginning to go down hill, still enjoyable for the fans but those who wish to can the show would not enjoy it

Sylvester K Super Reviewer

The name of this show has nothing to do with the show at all, and is never really justified in the show either. It's certainly far from the top of my list but it's the kind of show you want to do well because Courtney Cox hasn't done anything worth remembering since Friends.

Just as great as it's always been. Still one of the definitive comedies on TV today.

You gotta give this show a chance. It is written much like the old show "Soap". Very original but you have to listen tight as it moves at a pretty good clip.
