'Community' finale: Was that Laurie and Travis from 'Cougar Town'?

What's the only thing better than
Community meets Sergio Leone meets Star Wars? An awesomely unnecessary and unexplained cameo by Laurie (Busy Philipps) and Travis (Dan Byrd) from Cougar Town. They appear for less than a second after [SPOILER ALERT]


'Cougar Town': Love is a battlefield

In last night’s episode of “We Pretend… Cougar Town…Is Called Wine Time,” I was surprised by the lack of grape being pounded by our favorite cul-de-sac crew. I think a little time with Big Carl (RIP Joe) and even Little Richard would have done the group some good and maybe even helped with their familial problems.  READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town': The Cobbs can get through anything!

The headline says it all. The Cobbs can get through anything! I know you’re (probably) not a Cobb, but I have faith you can make it through this recap. So let’s chat “sorry, we still cringe at the title” Cougar Town.

Kirsten was officially planning her move to Chicago. Since locking her to a pipe with a chain was not a valid option, Travis furthered his plan to propose with his great-grandmother’s ring. I must note the rejected plans: 1) Skipping the ring altogether and putting a baby in her. 2) Pimp-whacking her over the head. Yeah, a proposal was really his only option. READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town': A historical lesson brought to you by Richard Stands

Last night’s Cougar Town taught us a valuable lesson about embarrassment: You can’t hear the world laughing at you if you’re laughing harder. (Or in Andy’s case, if you have pool water stuck in your ear.) It also taught us the importance of a good history lesson. If you don’t learn the simple stuff, you might just end up looking like a super-sexy corpse. And I think that’s a bad thing. READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town' Penny Can calls continue: Watch Courteney Cox answer one

Okay, so the exclusive video embedded below of Courteney Cox answering her first 1-855-Penny-Can call backstage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week would have been funnier if the caller had said he wasn’t hoping to get her. But still, it’s visual proof that the cast, creators, and writers are taking turns with the phone, which ABC tells EW has been ringing non-stop. They’re still passing it around this week, so it’s not too late to roll the dice and dial. Has anyone gotten through to someone? Share your story below. (We’d like to applaud Courteney’s caller for ending the conversation gracefully before she had to.)  READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town': Adventures in babysitting

It’s like Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) in April with TWO new episodes of Cul-De-Sac Crew…umm Cougar City…I mean Cougar Town this week. So let’s pound grape and dive right into it!

In Wednesday’s “Baby’s A Rock ‘N’ Roller,” we were reminded of baby Stan. That’s right. Ellie and Andy have a kid. Really, they do! I’m not making it up. And thus a plot was born: In order to prove that it’s a lot harder to raise a baby in your 40s than in your 20s, Ellie gets Jules (and Grayson by association) to babysit Stan. Team Ellie pointed out when Jules had Travis, she was young, had a lot of energy, and was too dumb to worry about screwing him up. Team Jules seemed to think that with a devoted husband and nanny, Ellie had it easy peasy. So Jules put all of her dangerous items in the pantry and her babysitting duties began. READ FULL STORY

'Community' goes 'Pulp Fiction': Check out the big brain on Jeff!

It makes total sense that Abed is a fan of Quentin Tarantino. Both have minds that are essentially Raiders of the Lost Ark warehouses filled with pop culture ephemera, both make references within references within references, and both can be extremely awkward when faced with the prospect of a normal, straightforward conversation. All of which is why dedicating an entire episode of Community to just making Pulp Fiction jokes would make complete sense and would probably be totally fantastic. But the writers on Community are too clever for that, and as the show progressed, the bespoke suits and gunplay of Pulp Fiction somehow morphed into the beige jackets and wordplay of My Dinner With Andre, combining one of the coolest movies of all time what is likely one of the least cool. (With the exception, of course, of the My Dinner With Andre action figures.) READ FULL STORY

David Arquette opens up to Oprah about his childhood, his marriage, his separation, and his intervention

(Oh wait, Sheen did.) As Arquette joked to Winfrey, you have your breakdown on Howard Stern, then you come back together on Oprah — and it appears he has. Arquette taped the interview a little over two weeks after completing a 28-day rehab program for alcohol addiction. He was honest and more serious than most of us have ever seen him as he discussed his public spiral and detailed the events that led to his separation from wife Courteney Cox. READ FULL STORY

Which TV character would you date in real life?

TV-characters-to-dateImage Credit: Monty Brinton/CBS; Eric McCandless/ABC; Mitchell Haaseth/NBC; Justin Stephens/NBC; John P. Johnson/HBOSince Valentine’s Day is approaching, we’ve decided it’s time to crown TV’s Most Datable Characters. Here’s how this works: As we did in 2008, we are asking you to name the TV character you’d actually date in real life. The rules remain the same:

1. Hosts or reality TV contestants of any kind are disqualified. The relationship you’re creating is real; your better half must be fictional.
2. You can’t change anything about your partner — other than that he or she will no longer have feelings for the show love interest, obviously.

Here’s what’s different: This year, we’ll tally your nominations — male and female, from current shows only — and, assuming it’s not a landslide, create polls with your top picks and take this to an official vote. The Office‘s Jim Halpert won the men’s title in ’08. Can he repeat? Let’s find out.

To get you thinking, here are a few names being tossed around PopWatch HQ. Remember, if you want them to make the poll round, you have to nominate them as well…  READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town': Give women what they want!

cougar-townIn “Cry to Me,” the cul-de-sac crew celebrated Valentine’s Day. Grayson, being the rock-star boyfriend that he is, bought Jules (and even Kirsten!) roses the day before V-Day, thus beginning an epic circle of love. I would like to adopt the circle of love concept into my life, especially if it means someone will bring me sticky buns. Even if that someone is Tom.

The gang recounted their worst Valentine’s Days ever, and Grayson won (?) with his dad’s Feb. 14 death. Jules’ overcooked swordfish pretty much paled in comparison. So Jules spent the rest of the episode trying to see her double rainbow — Grayson crying. Even though Boyfrizzle was willing to do just about anything for Valentine’s Day, he decided he’d rather touch his tongue to a car battery than open up emotionally. (Warning: Do not do this or you could end up just like Laurie’s friend who sits around watching game shows with the lady who helps her go to the bathroom.) As it turns out, Jules really wanted Grayson to treat her differently…which he already does. Also, tears really can squeeze out of his tiny eyes, courtesy of Field of Dreams. READ FULL STORY
