The Cool Kids: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

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.

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

"The Cool Kids" is a horrible mess.

October 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.

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

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

October 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.

October 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.
