Cougar Town: Hail, Hail, the Gang’s All Here

<I>Cougar Town</I>: Hail, Hail, the Gang’s All Here

This show is weird, sentimental, insane and sitcomy, but somehow when thrown together with a liberally poured glass of wine, it works really well for us. While we were initially inclined to write it off in its early days, it completely charmed us over time and we missed it so much during its nine-month (!) hiatus. Maybe not as much as Abed has, but a lot nonetheless. Still, since we are skeptical about everything, we were more than a little concerned that the show might have lost its magic during its long time away. Fortunately, we need not have worried. Here are our favorite parts from last night's season premiere:

Rake and Other Shows with Vague, Deceptive Titles

<i>Rake</i> and Other Shows with Vague, Deceptive Titles

Despite what the title suggests, Rake the new Greg Kinnear show on Fox, is not about a rake or even a series of ill-placed rakes.. Heck, the name of Kinnear's character -- a lawyer with a bad boy attitude -- isn't even something like Rake Rexington, which is really too bad because then I'd be more inclined to watch this show. (His character's name is actually Keegan Deaneā€¦ BORING.) Instead, the title here presumably refers to the "rakehell" characterization in literature ("An immoral or dissolute person"? Check!), as well as the term "rake" in poker (you see, the guy also gambles in this show). Sorry to bum you out, leaf-raking enthusiast, it looks like you'll have to wait a little bit longer. But don't feel bad about being duped by the vague title, because over the past few years that's become something of a trend on television. We've picked a few shows (including some upcoming new ones designed to trick us) with vague, deceptive titles, what they really meant, and what we actually want them to mean.

TWoP 10: TV's Most Entertaining Roommates

The roommate dynamic has been one that has been mined for TV forever (just look at The Odd Couple and Laverne & Shirley), with Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 and Girls adding their own variations to the conceit this week. But which current sets of roomies are the most fun to watch?

TWoP 10: Best Bars Currently on TV

While most of us (of legal drinking age) will gravitate towards our local Irish pubs this weekend to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, we'd really prefer to be imbibing cocktails at some of our favorite television watering holes. While years ago, we may have wanted to go to the Boston bar where everybody knows your name, or would've liked to take in some sweet drinks while cruising with Isaac, there are plenty of newer fictional establishments that are calling out to us these days. Man, there are a lot of lushes on TV.
