The Cool Kids (Fox) – Premieres 28th September
A sitcom set in a retirement home, where after the death of their friend Jerry, Hank, Sid and Charlie find themselves with an univited new member of their group in the shape of Margaret.
With them initially not taking to Margaret inviting herself to the group, they finally accept her after she helps the trio execute their schemes that go against the rules of the retirement home.
The show is the standard network comedy setup, where even lines that aren’t jokes get the canned laughter treatment. And altogether it comes across as a pensioner version of It’s Always Sunny, where virtually every joke misses the mark. It’s not good.
