Tv Season Info

The cul-de-sac crew are back as Season 4 opens a week after Jules (Courteney Cox) and Grayson (Josh Hopkins) tie the knot, though no matter how many ways they try to stoke their passion—naked day, anyone?—it's a never-ending challenge to keep their bliss from turning into blahs. And there's room for more than one happy couple in fictional Gulf Haven, Fla., as Bobby (Brian Van Holt) finds romance when surfing buddy Lisa (Maria Thayer) hangs ten right into his heart; and a long-distance relationship for Laurie (Busy Philipps) gets closer when Wade (Edwin Hodge) returns from Afghanistan, but the soldier soon realizes that her bond with Travis (Dan Byrd) is much more than a flirtation. Meanwhile, Andy (Ian Gomez) dabbles in politics; Grayson sells his house to an older couple, which conjures up thoughts of Jules and Bobby's move to the neighborhood; and a health scare for Jules' dad, Chick (Ken Jenkins), inspires the gang's trip to Hollywood and an encounter with a Tinseltown legend.

The wine still flows. The banter still (um) bants.

Three cheers, and a toast with a bottomless goblet, to one of TV's most deliriously entertaining ensembles.

If you were worried about the switch to TBS messing up the show in any way, be calm. [Season premiere] "Blue Sunday" gives us the same Cougar Town we know and appreciate.

Though the network has changed, there's no sense of transition, just relief to see the familiar faces of the cul-de-sac... It's still great fun. Entrenched fans won't be disappointed. But even if you haven't watched, it's easy to pick up.

Cougar Town is back! And it's still one of the best comedies on television.
