Cougartown Brings Back the Dead

Brian Van Holt, Josh Hopkins, Courteney Cox, Dan ByrdI’ve been meaning to make a post for weeks about how surprising Cougartown has been.  I didn’t think it was possible to bring back the career of Courteney Cox in life after Friends and that Dirt show, but they’ve done it.

When annoucments were first released about the show I cringed.  I thought the name and the star were all off.  I wasn’t personally interested in the concept either but then came the byline of Busy Phillips and the kid from the short lived CW show Aliens in America, so I decided to give it a chance.

I’m really loving this show.  The humor is topical, the theme is relivant to the times we’re living in and the characters are unique in their normalsy. The father, being played by Brian Van Holt, is an unexpected highlight of the show as the washed up golf pro that lives on a boat, on land.

On top of Courteney Cox’s career, it’s brought back the half hour family-ish sit-com.  It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a functional, prime time sitcom worth watching that was based in the home.  Or at least it’s been a long time since I’ve had one that I’ve added to my ‘must watch’ list.  If you haven’t given Cougartown a chance, I highly suggest you check it out on your ‘ondemand’ feature.  But let’s keep in mind that, while still entertaining, the season started a lot stronger than it’s been over the past couple weeks.
