Thurs 10/27: The Great Indoors (CBS)
Returning to television in his first sitcom role since Community, Joel McHale is now taking on a subject near and dear to our hearts: adventure magazines. McHale plays an experienced adventure reporter who is taken out of the field to consult a whiny group of millennials who work in his magazine’s digital department. There is an important social commentary in McHale’s frustration with his co-worker’s rampant addiction to technology, and his efforts to help them get outdoors. But the best scenes are when his frustrations reach critical mass and the insults fly. The honorable Stephen Fry co-stars as McHale’s scotch-sipping boss.
