The Cool Kids: Season 1 (2018)


Critic Consensus: Though the cheesy jokes and cliches are old hat, an all-too-uncommon focus on older characters makes it easier to forgive The Cool Kids' lack of fresh wrinkles.

Critic Reviews for The Cool Kids Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

"The Cool Kids" is a horrible mess.

Oct 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Alas, your friendly content provider has grown old enough to reside in the Shady Meadows Retirement Community. But now that I see what that can be like, well, over my dead body.

Top Critic

Throwback sitcom has mature (and funny) humor.

Oct 3, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Make no mistake, The Cool Kids is funny. Or rather, these characters are funny.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

You couldn't wish for a better cast in this comedy about a group of fun-loving rebels at an assisted living facility, though David Alan Grier, Leslie Jordan and even Martin Mull are all too young for their roles.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Not sure how a show can gather four of the better comic actors of the last 50 years and end up being bad, but The Cool Kids managed to accomplish that feat.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

It's cool having them all back on TV, especially Lawrence, who seems more vibrant than in all those years when she donned Mama's wig.

Sep 28, 2018 | Full Review…

That's the Boomers, making one last glorious mess on their way out.

Sep 28, 2018 | Full Review…

It's not particularly ambitious, in form or content, but it hits the marks it assigns itself.

Sep 28, 2018 | Full Review…

These are comic vets, in some cases legends, and they will take The Cool Kids to heights that are probably higher than the material or even the format merits.
