Rules of Engagement is a popular American sitcom that aired on CBS from 2007-2013. The show has a star-studded cast that includes Patrick Warburton, Megyn Price, Oliver Hudson, Bianca Kajlich, David Spade, Adhir Kalyan, Heather Locklear, and Mini Anden. The show revolves around two couples, Jeff Bingham (played by Warburton) and Audrey (played by Price), and Adam (played by Hudson) and Jennifer (played by Kajlich). Jeff and Audrey are a married couple who have been together for many years and offer advice and guidance to the younger couple, Adam and Jennifer, who are engaged and just starting out their journey together.

David Spade plays the role of Russell Dunbar, a bachelor and womanizer who is constantly on the hunt for his next conquest. Adhir Kalyan plays the role of Timmy Patel, Russell's personal assistant, and Heather Locklear joins the show in later seasons as Barbara, a successful businesswoman who takes an interest in Russell.

The show is known for its witty humor, relatable storylines, and clever writing. Each episode explores different themes and topics related to love, relationships, and marriage. Some of the recurring themes include navigating through the challenges of marriage, dealing with infidelity and jealousy, and the struggles of balancing work and personal life.

One of the standout features of the show is the chemistry between the cast members. Warburton and Price play off each other perfectly, as their characters offer a balance of humor, support, and practical advice. Hudson and Kajlich also have great chemistry together, and their characters' journey from engagement to marriage is one of the main storylines of the show.

David Spade's portrayal of Russell Dunbar is also a highlight of the show. His character is often the source of comedic relief, as he finds himself in various ridiculous situations, all in pursuit of the company of women. Adhir Kalyan's portrayal of Timmy Patel is also a standout performance, as he constantly deals with the demands of his difficult employer while navigating his own personal life.

Heather Locklear's addition to the cast in later seasons adds a new dynamic to the show, as her character of Barbara brings a level of sophistication and ambition that is often lacking in the rest of the cast.

Overall, Rules of Engagement is a well-written and well-acted sitcom that explores the complexities of relationships with humor and relatability. The talented cast and engaging storylines make it a must-watch for anyone looking for a lighthearted comedy that also has heart.

Rules of Engagement is a series that is currently running and has 7 seasons (120 episodes). The series first aired on February 5, 2007.
