Review: In Fox’s ‘The Cool Kids,’ old pros have a blast at the retirement home

Grier, who has been given some snow-white sidewalls to make him look older (see his last series, “The Carmichael Show,” for comparison), is the designated grumbler, with a way of shifting suddenly from soft to loud, like a Nirvana track (“You know, Charlie, that’s the most lucid thing I’ve ever heard you say and are ONE HUNDRED PERCENT INCORRECT”).
