More information to fill the lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. And this one has a bittersweet flavour to it. ABC cancelled Cougar Town, and that was bad news, because the cul-de-sac is awesome to watch, but then, when hope was getting lost TBS came to save the day, and picked up the show from cancellation and have it moved to cable.

Recap from Cougar Town Walls
Recap by Murph and the magic tones for IMDB.com
And the Cul-de-Sac Crew is bac!. And once they’ve gotten their lips of the butts of Dancing with the Stars viewers, it’s time to dig up the time capsule Jules (Courteney Cox) and Bobby (Brian Van Holt) buried in the background when Travis (Dan Byrd) was born. Well, Bobby was, because Jules forgot to dig it up last year when Travis was 18. Bobby needs his lucky visor from the capsule for playing golf because he needs cash. It has a lot of things in it, such as her grandmother’s engagement ring, old photos, Travis’ old Teddy Ruxpin doll, and most importantly (to Bobby), .38 Special cassettes. (HEY, nothing wrong with .38 Special! “Hold on Loosely” is EPIC!) Travis might be interested in that engagement ring, though. At least Jules is thinking that. Kirsten (Collette Wolfe) got a job in Chicago and would be leaving in a few months. Of course, Jules being Jules (and BTW, going on hiatus REALLY agrees with Courteney. She looked amazing.) she has to scheme to keep Kirsten in Florida and in love with Travis. But Ellie (Christa Miller) and Laurie (Busy Philipps) thinks that’s over the line. (And it beats Laurie’s plan to give Kirsten a puppy that explodes if she takes it across town lines…sort of a prequel to Speed.) Ellie wants Jules to stop meddling in Travis’ life.
JULES: Name one thing I’ve done to Travis that is ‘meddlesome’!
(all at once) BOBBY: Watched him while he slept. ELLIE: You scare his girlfriend away. LAURIE: You want to live in his blood.
At Grayson’s bar, Andy (Ian Gomez) won’t pass a single attractive woman a napkin or give them the time because he automatically assumes they’re hitting on him. Grayson (Josh Hopkins) thinks it’s BS, until one actually does the ol’ “I’m just reaching for something and I’m sorry my breasts grazed you for an extended period of time”. So Grayson and Andy corner one of the other ladies Andy thought was hitting on her, only her VERY large husband definitely agrees she just wanted to know the time.
Bobby takes a break with the gang, and what is the only thing they can do on a break? PENNY CAN! (Bill Lawrence has asked me to type it that way the first time I enter it into every synopsis from now on. j/k) Laurie comes up with the idea of selling printed Penny Cans. And since I lived through lava lamps, the Shake Weight, and the Pet Rock, this isn’t the dumbest thing I’ve heard of. Laurie and Bobby invest $400 in cans, printing, and pennies. And then there’s the radio ad, because Penny Can is the most addictive coin-based game to come along since Heads or Tails. Grayson won’t invest, since he thinks it’s a dumber idea than Laurie’s “Gayke Shop.” (“Find me a gay guy who doesn’t love cake!”) Bobby thinks that kicks ass, since it always felt bad when he got his ass kicked, which Grayson can’t figure out for the life of him. But at least now Grayson knows what happens when the penny goes into the can and bounces out: a ‘stache attack, which Jules actually wears very well. (Scary!)
When Travis borrows Tom’s metal detector (the one you sweep on the ground, not the ones they have in schools now) to find the capsule, suddenly Jules is convinced Travis is getting the engagement ring and will propose to Kirsten. (No!) And now Jules needs to do the “No-No Dance” to cover for her discovery.
As everybody tries to rock the No-No Dance (including Grayson, who looks like a REALLY gay Freddy Mercury with his drawn-on mustache), Jules is determined to stop Travis from proposing. Ellie talks to her, and she is convinced she can step back on this, although Grayson isn’t convinced. Of course, he’s also not convinced Penny Can will work, nor will Bobby’s idea of paint-in-a-bag.
GRAYSON: There were so many ways Bobby could have better spent that money. He could have put it in a pile and set it on fire!
After Bobby turns down Jules trying to talk Travis out of proposing because he didn’t want to look like the jerk, Jules does an end-around and digs up the capsule, hiding it in her closet. Even going so far as to lacing Travis’ lemonade with cough syrup to make him take a nap. Ellie is going ballistic at Jules because the “clingy Mom” routine looks worse on Jules than scarves. (“They give you bird face.”)
As Grayson and Andy hide out from the very large man jumping on Grayson’s car, Andy wants him to stop being so practical and be more supportive. One or two of the women were hitting on him, so why can’t Andy think all of them were? Or Jules might actually be able to leave Travis alone? (serious gray area there). Or support Laurie and Bobby in their Penny Can business? He wants Grayson to slap out of it. (They changed it from ‘snap’, and you can take a good guess how.) However, Grayson does slap out of it (once he gets his car turned back on its wheels) by hosting a Penny Can night at the bar, which is a rousing success. Ellie gets Jules at the bar (after demonstrating her prowess at Moving Target Penny Can…complete with No-No Dance), and called her own mother to demonstrate to Jules how much she regrets her mother picking on every little detail of her life. She doesn’t want Travis to resent Jules. Jules gets the point and brought Travis the time capsule. Travis finds the visor, the Teddy Ruxpin doll (complete with Bobby wishing him a Happy 18th), and he puts the engagement ring in his pocket. And all Jules says is she loves him. Travis takes the time capsule back to school, leaving Jules and Ellie to look at his baby pictures?
JULES: (sad) So, now do I just sit here and wait to see what happens? Ugh, this totally kicks ass.
ELLIE: (hugs her and gives her Big Carl) I know, sweetie.

Ok, we have been waiting for this moment. Cougar Town is back!
I know I liked Mr Sunshine, but it´s time already to watch Cougar Town again…
And well, this week will be a two episode week for CT… not bad, huh?
Well, honoring that decision from ABC, I will list Ten Reasons why you should be watching Cougar Town; and if you are not yet… then start!
Ten reasons to watch Cougar Town!
1- Courteney Cox as the leading lady
I have Courteney Cox in the top ten of leading ladies on TV and very well deserved. You perhaps only remember her as Monica and cannot change that image. Well, she is Jules Cobb and that´s a whole different character, a whole different lady, one who´s not so obsessed with cleaning and one who´s very funny also.
2- The supporting ensemble
Arguably the best… but if we are not into arguing mood, let´s just say, one of the best to say the least, and everybody happy: Christa Miller, Busy Philipps, Dan Byrd, Josh Hopkins, Ian Gomez and Brian Van Holt. They click on every level. They are chemistry at the finest!
3- The Creator and Showrunner
Bill Lawrence created this show alongside Kevin Biegel. The names do not ring a bell? Bill Lawrence is the man responsible of bringing Scrubs to life! And here, that kind of humour is well alive.
4- The Title
Ok, the title sucks… Everybody knows it… that´s what´s best… the showrunners also know it, and they tease themselves, they auto mock, they changed the titles sequence from Welcome to Cougar Town to Badly Titled Cougar Town or It’s Okay to Watch a Show Called Cougar Town as some examples.
5- The Tom Petty Connection
I really don´t know if Tom Petty is a friend of Bill Lawrence, or if he´s just a fan or what… but every single episode of Cougar Town is named after a Tom Petty or Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers song.
I´m looking forward to seeing Tom Petty guest starring on the show. That´d be awesome.
Also, I´m looking forward to an episode named after one of Tom Petty´s Mudcructh songs.
He was also named in one episode where Jules describes Josh as among the top 10-15 people she has met, which includes “Tom Petty and Colonel Sanders”.
6- The Community Contact
Busy Phillips, Bill Lawrence, Christa Miller are all very active on Twitter, interacting with fans. The others members of the cast are also on Twitter, a little bit less active though.
7- The recurring cast
They are not in every episode, and they don´t need to be. But when they are, they surely leave a mark. They are fun-neh!
Bob Clendenin´s Tom, Jules’ widowed neighbor who expresses his attraction for her in weird ways; LaMarcus Tinker´s Kevin, Travis´roommate, Collette Wolfe´s Kirsten, Travis´girlfriend and Carolyn Hennessy´s Barb, the only reminiscing character to the Cougaring days of the show.
8- The Pairing
Cougar Town is generally paired up with Modern Family. So that´s a one full hour to laugh. And that´s something to always look for on TV.
9- The Change of Concept
Getting the hell away from the Cougary part was probably one of the best moves in TV in the last few years. Hats off to that decision!
10- The praising of friendship
I know there´s a lot of incorrectness in the show… but the main value behind it is Friendship. That´s always good.
Before going on a ten week and a half hiatus Cougar Town had one more episode left. Cougar Town is the best show with the worst name. And the ensemble cast from the show (Courteney Cox, Busy Phillips, Christa Miller, Ian Gomez, Dan Byrd and Josh Hopkins is great in the chemistry department. In this episode, It’s Valentine’s Day and Jules wants nothing more than for Grayson to open up to her about his feelings. Meanwhile, when Ellie is adamant about not wanting to do anything for Valentine’s Day, Andy makes a date with Bobby, and Travis looks to Laurie for help in creating his “sexy” gift for Kirsten.

If they want it, do it, if they don´t still do it, cause the women don´t know what they want; cause it´s always reliable they are unsatisfiable, you can never give a woman what they want; you can never give a woman what they want.

Recap from Cougar Town S02E11 – No Reason to Cry
Recap by MurphAndTheMagicTones
Bobby (Brian Van Holt) is all set to go on the PGA Tour, and he even has Diet Dr. Pepper as a sponsor. Perhaps he should tell the Diet Dr. Pepper people that. But to be fair, he did try to impress several doctors on the putting green with his Ty Webb imitation. (No money, but they liked it.) Jules (Courteney Cox) and Travis (Dan Byrd) have a little staredown concerning who has the better relationship right now, which Travis is more than happy to concede, as that’s a weird competition to have with your mother. But Jules, despite Grayson (Josh Hopkins) being a “slow wuss” by not returning her “I Love You,” she thinks they have a relationship like the two doves outside her window, as doves mate for life. That is, unless one of them flies right into the frying pan she stuck outside to water the plants. Jules is devastated, but Grayson tries to crack a few jokes about it…unsuccessfully. Jules tells him she wants everybody to cry so hard when she dies, they can’t even breathe and are so distraught over losing her, they never recover. And then she runs over a squirrel. The vet refuses to bring Tuffie L’Rue back to life, and Jules isn’t happy about it.
Kirsten thinks Bobby should be up on current events and gets him one of those magazines that summarizes all of the other magazines. And it works a little too well. Bobby can only think about all the bad things going on in the world, and his golf game is screwed up as a result. Travis warned her about messing in the cul-de-sac dynamic, and it comes back to bit Kirsten in the ass. Suddenly, Andy (Ian Gomez) and Ellie (Christa Miller) are fighting because Andy tried one of his little in-jokes with Ellie on Laurie (Busy Philipps). Now she decides she can give Travis a scalp massage, and Andy exerts payback by giving Kirsten a neck rub. (Should have escaped when Grayson warned her.) Laurie borrows Kirsten’s sweater, and Bobby is so depressed, he’s sleeping on Kirsten’s couch…with his shoes on.
TRAVIS: You meddled. And now they’ve come for you.
Jules tries to make Grayson look like a jerk by getting another squirrel and putting it in a cage. But Grayson’s not fooled, especially after neighbor Tom discovers a dead squirrel in his trash. Jules apologizes because she thinks Grayson will be sad for those two animals being killed. Which he isn’t. She retracts her apology and turns on her heel to walk away…and steps on a small lizard in the driveway.
Travis and Kirsten try to fix Bobby, but even more Diet Dr. Pepper (seriously, have they paid you enough money yet? Don’t get me wrong; I like the stuff, but geez…) won’t help him. Kirsten figures out they don’t get depressed over bad news because they hear so much of it every day, it’s all just white noise to them. Bobby doesn’t want a noise ghost in his head, but Travis tells him to think of a noise that totally relaxes and soothes him. And if you guessed the fizzing of the Diet Dr. Pepper would be that soothing noise, winner winner chicken dinner. Sure enough, the fizz works.
BOBBY: Yeah baby! The world sucks but I don’t care!
Ellie is still mad at Andy for pulling the name trick on Laurie, where he tells Laurie someone’s name, and she talks to them only to get the name wrong. Andy wants to know why. Ellie explains she felt they were the doves Jules wanted Grayson and her to be like. The name thing was the single piece Ellie didn’t share in the “friend prison” of the cul-de-sac crowd. Andy figures it out and comes up with a new “thing” for them: fake apology notes.
Jules is still upset about accidentally killing three small animals in a day, and Grayson finally figures out a way to help her. He makes a pet cemetery in her backyard, complete with gravestones for the dove, the squirrel, and the lizard. (“Serial killer alert!”) Kirsten is creeped out about attending the funeral, but Travis reminded her she started the whole thing. Jules thinks Grayson is mocking her, but Grayson even invited the friend prison over so he can tell her he loves all the little differences between them. And he finally gives her the “I Love You”.

Ok, so Cougar Town is the best show with the worst name. And the ensemble cast from the show (Courteney Cox, Busy Phillips, Christa Miller, Ian Gomez, Dan Byrd and Josh Hopkins is great in the chemistry department. In this episode, Jules wants to help Bobby gain his confidence back and thinks fixing up his boat and getting it back in the water will do the trick. Meanwhile, Ellie looks to dig up some dirt on Grayson and discovers a hilarious fact about his past, Kirsten grows jealous of the obvious connection between Travis and Laurie, and Bobby tries to qualify for a golf tournament with Andy as his caddie.

Recap from Cougar Town S02E10 – The Same Old You
Recap by MurphAndTheMagicTones
This is that episode of Cougar Town where they drink wine. (Oh, wait, that’s like saying that episode of Three’s Company where there’s some kind of misunderstanding) But at least we’re in on the joke this week, as Laurie (Busy Philipps) ponders why they never talk about work. Must be because their jobs are boring and repetitive.
ELLIE: Oh, that’s right. Your jobs are lame.
JULES: Strong words from someone who spent her 20s as a tequila shot girl at a dive bar.
But aside from knowing Jules’ (Courteney Cox) nickname in high school (slug-tongue, and it really doesn’t need explaining, does it?), Ellie (Christa Miller) doesn’t know much dirt about anybody, especially Grayson (Josh Hopkins). But she figures that’s what the Internet is for.
Kirsten doesn’t want Travis (Dan Byrd) to go home for the weekend, and one of Bobby’s (Brian Van Holt) clients is convinced he should go to the PGA qualifying tournament in Sarasota. Jules agrees, as does Robin…sorry, Andy (Ian Gomez).
JULES: Look, Andy is right. You…really? Are you both sulking? Fine. Batman, Robin is right!
As Ellie pours over her research into Grayson’s past…complete with YouTube clips of the Mister Miami competition of the 1980s, Kirsten takes Travis to a sorority party. He thinks it’s cool to actually show up with a date, but Laurie being there and dispensing advice to the sorority sisters isn’t as cool.
Jules explains why she wanted Bobby in that golf tournament so much: he was a golfing “god” back when she fell in love with him. Golden hair, ripped body which didn’t age well, as we were shown, and he was full of confidence. Jules has a plan to rid whatever it is that is keeping Bobby down. She even breaks out the white wine, because it’s the “thinking wine.” Their idea to give Bobby confidence is to give him a home. Specifically, to spruce up his boat and get him a slip at the marina so he has a real address. Although Ellie will settle for a sparkly vest. Worked for Grayson, right? And now he’s on the Internet.
Laurie confesses to Travis and Kirsten why she was pretending to be a sorority girl. She did it in her twenties to drink for free and get anything she needed. However, the girls were turning to her for advice now, even using her vernacular (“That girl Karen is such a bitch. She’s a total Ellie!”) Travis thinks it’s cute, and he thinks it’s even cuter how Laurie is self-conscious about her laugh. And Kirsten is wondering what the hell is going on.
While Bobby is occupied at Travis’ school by being dared to eat an entire tub of cheesy popcorn (even by Kirsten and Kevin), Jules, Ellie, Grayson, and Andy go Extreme Makeover: Ocean Edition on the Jealous Much?. It’s an annoying 80′s movie montage, so Ellie turns off the music. (Awww, Katrina and the Waves NEVER went out of style!) Ellie prefers the sweaty, angry montage…which still features Katrina and the Waves for some reason. They manage to get plenty of paint on each other, not as much on the boat. But Grayson did find a nice 80′s style picture of Ellie. Sort of like what Sinead O’Connor would look like with hair…and the same attitude issues. But it does work. Bobby is so appreciative, he goes to the tournament and is doing great. If Andy would realize you don’t talk to a golfer in the zone like you don’t talk to a pitcher in the middle of a no-hitter. And then Andy says the worst thing you can: “What could possibly go wrong?” Followed by Bobby shanking a tee shot, having it ricochet off the tree, and knocking Andy unconscious.
Laurie invites Travis and “girlfriend” to another sorority party to raise money for a sorority sister’s rhinoplasty, but Kirsten wants to take a pass, since she thinks sororities are elitist. Travis disagrees and Kirsten storms off. Surprisingly, it takes Bobby to point out Kirsten is jealous of Travis and Laurie’s relationship. But to be fair, he had to wake up from the cheesy popcorn effects. Laurie and Travis go into full denial, naturally. Laurie claims she’s as flirty with Travis as she is with everyone else. And the conversation starts getting a bit awkward. Laurie actually contemplated how Jules would react if she dated Travis. Kirsten returns to apologize, only to see Laurie still there. But Laurie apologizes and leaves. Travis plays along for Kirsten’s benefit.
As Bobby limps along without his good-luck caddie in a state of coherence, Grayson and Ellie try to one-up each other on the dirt. Ellie brings out the Hot Florida Bartender Calendar, complete with Grayson in a Speedo, while Grayson fishes out Ellie’s Real World audition tape and a picture of her braces catching another girl’s hair. But both finally realize that’s their rather insane definition of friendship: to have enough crap on someone to prevent that person from revealing the crap about them. Given that Ellie had a tearful voicemail of Grayson telling the woman who took his virginity he loved her, he was happy to call it a stalemate.
Everybody gathers for the relocating of the Jealous Much?, and Jules couldn’t be more proud. And then they place the boat in the water. And it sinks right to the bottom of the harbor. But Jules points out Bobby is able to laugh about it now instead of fall apart like he would have a few years ago. He’s more confident now, and everybody loves him for it. And all of them were there when he made that final putt to qualify for the PGA Tournament.

Ok, so Cougar Town is the best show with the worst name. And the ensemble cast from the show (Courteney Cox, Busy Phillips, Christa Miller, Ian Gomez, Dan Byrd and Josh Hopkins is great in the chemistry department.
In this episode, Travis brings home his new girlfriend, Kirsten, a grad-student, to meet Jules. Jules feels instantly threatened when Ellie points out that, moving forward, any girl Travis brings home could be her future daughter-in-law. Meanwhile, Grayson’s house has become the new place for the gang to hang out, which he hates, and Travis turns to Bobby for advice.

Recap from Cougar Town S02E08 – Little Girl Blues
Recap written by Murphnadthemagictones
IT’S OK TO WATCH A SHOW CALLED – COUGAR TOWN
The gang meets Travis’ (Dan Byrd) new girlfriend, as Kylie went off with her new guy, Turbo. (And not one of the American Gladiators, either.) Of course, the gang insists on embarrassing Travis in front of Kristen, and she is fully embarrassed since her name is Kirsten. She’s also a 23-year-old grad student. As the guys take Travis upstairs and bow to his greatness, Jules (Courteney Cox), Laurie (Busy Philipps), and Ellie (Christa Miller) get to know Kirsten. Jules then clears everybody out so the two kids can have their private time. Clearing out of Jules’ house means going over to Grayson’s place, and Ellie points out to Grayson (Josh Hopkins) that was his first mistake.
ELLIE: Once they get in here, they’re never going to leave. They’re like human bedbugs.
Sure enough, Bobby’s (Brian Van Holt) already in his boxers, and Andy (Ian Gomez) is looking for his “manorexic” food (hidden candy bars). The ladies head back to offer commentary on the new couple…in their presence. But Ellie reminds Jules that every girl Travis now meets is potential daughter-in-law material. (Jules was 19 when she met Bobby.) Jules is afraid she’s going to get mean and try to run off any potential mate for Travis, so Laurie has to be her Cobb-stopper. And when Jules goes loco after making a big pot of spaghetti when Travis promised Kirsten to take her out for dinner, Laurie’s already not doing her job.
ELLIE: (to Laurie) You’ve been on the job for two seconds, and she’s already making him decide between his mother and the cute blonde he’s doinking.
Travis confides in Bobby he isn’t sure if he can be good in bed with Kirsten. They had done it once, but Travis was whacked out on cold medicine, so he didn’t even know if he was any good. Bobby knows Travis has RPA (Repeat Performance Anxiety). And he should know: he was smart enough to install a seatbelt on his hammock.
Kirsten committed the first of many cardinal sins: she made scones…and her grandmother taught her the recipe before she died. Jules can’t stand it, so she has a confab at Grayson’s house…to Grayson’s surprise. Even Tom got to come in. And Grayson didn’t make coffee for everybody fast enough. By the way, if you are ever in this situation, destroying all of your coffee cups does no good: everybody just uses bowls and thinks they’re in a Japanese restaurant.
Travis wanted to talk to Bobby privately about his RPA, but somehow that meant discussing it in front of Grayson (who shaves his legs), Andy (who was born to be a stud, according to him), and Tom (who is still inexplicably there). Travis gives up, and Laurie has to pull out the major Cobb-stopper for the bombshell Kirsten drops: Travis and she were thinking of going to her parents’ place for Thanksgiving. (GASP!) Jules starts giving Kirsten both barrels, and Laurie shoos her away before any more damage can be inflicted. But Jules is so crazy, she starts taking it out on Laurie and her dye job. (“I knew you were going to be mean, but that one cut like a knife!”) Laurie goes up to talk to Kirsten (while she’s showering, yes) She tells Kristen (KIRSTEN!) to treat Jules’ attacks like you would a shark: give her a good punch in the nose. Which Laurie accidentally demonstrates on her. And Jules doing the Meet the Parents on her later certainly didn’t help.
In the morning, Kirsten takes Laurie’s advice and stands up to Jules. She takes some of Jules’ wine for breakfast (which she had brought as a gift) and even used Laurie’s “sexy townie ho” insult on Jules. Jules wasn’t having it, as the thunder and blackout indicated. (Well, that was Ellie rattling a cookie sheet and flicking the light switch, but still…) Jules is ready to go after her, but Kirsten stands her ground…until she accidentally knocks over and destroys “Big Joe,” Jules’ monster-sized wine glass. Even Laurie is shocked. Kirsten breaks down and takes it out on Travis for not having her back the entire weekend (and for calling her Kristen, too). Kirsten walks out in horror. Jules turns on Laurie for telling Kirsten to stand up to her, but Laurie drags her over to Grayson’s. Travis was over there, and the guys (Bobby, Confidence Dance, and Chilly Tush) admit they’re horrible at sex as well, so Travis is in the same boat they are. Laurie puts Jules and Travis together to talk and clears everybody else out. Jules tells him there shouldn’t be anything he did that was so horrible he couldn’t talk to Kirsten about it. He does, and then Jules talks to Kirsten, too.
JULES: I know that I can get crazy when it comes to Travis, but the upside of having a boyfriend with a psycho mom is that I’ve taught him to be the type of guy someone like you would want to be with…We women have a great responsibility to control the men in our lives. Don’t abuse it like I do: be nice to my boy.
And everybody says goodbye to Big Joe…and hello to Big Carl.
