Something Cool (Television Thoughts: The Cool Kids, Fox)

p15517384_b_v8_abI was drawn to seeing ‘The Cool Kids’ because one of its stars is Leslie Jordan, a gay comic and actor I generally like. Of course, he plays a gay man here, with a scarf and a Southern drawl, so you know this is probably a show which will make fun of stereotypes, since it is billed as a ‘comedy.’  This show is from Charlie Day, of ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ fame.  The show is set in a retirement community, with David Alan Grier, Vicki Lawrence, and Martin Mull as the other Senior Citizen cast. Call it a Co-ed ‘Golden Girls,’ I guess. I chuckled maybe once during the pilot episode, but strangely there is something about the show that may pull me back in. I’ll check an episode or two more before I give up on this.
