Critic Consensus: The Great Indoors serves up one repetitive, formulaic joke, though the cast performs respectably within the significant constraints of the material.

News & Interviews for The Great Indoors: Season 1
The show just alienates too much of its potential audience; an audience that by the show's own admission is easily offended, and probably won't stick around once it realizes it's the butt of some ill-conceived jokes.
The show's ignorance feels totemic, though-there's nothing wrong with poking fun at younger folk, of course, but it's can't be the premise of an entire television series, certainly not one with any hope of a future.
The Great Indoors, while far from great, is the freshest, wittiest new comedy on CBS this fall.
The Great Indoors has at least the potential to grow into something better. But it might not be worth that second look if not for Stephen Fry.
Still, despite how broad and obvious the humor is, the show does manage to be funny a good deal of the time.
