TV show description:
A multi-camera sitcom on FOX, The Cool Kids revolves around a loyal but motley crew who live at a retirement community and will break any rule to have fun.
Hank (Grier) is the leader of a trio of male friends. He’s gruff and opinionated and not completely unlike Archie Bunker. Charlie (Mull) is a bumbling wanderer who constantly goes off on tangents about bizarre episodes from his life. Meanwhile, Sid (Jordan) is a fun-loving but quite melodramatic little guy.
The lives of these guys are complicated when Margaret (Lawrence) forces her way into the group. She’s a brash and confident woman who’s not going to take crap from anyone — especially not these three.
Though they may be old, this quartet is far from done with life. Growing old with dignity is for chumps. The self-proclaimed “cool kids” are determined to make the third act of their lives the craziest and most interesting one yet.
Episode #22 — The Friend-aversary
Hank, Charlie and Sid prepare their Friend-iversary party, and don’t include Margaret. Noticing the tension between Hank and Sid, Margaret encourages Sid to speak up for himself. Meanwhile, Sid has his sights set on the patio for their party and attempts to convince the cat ladies to release it to them.
First aired: May 10, 2019
