The Great Indoors : Perhaps A More Fitting "Gen X-ers Vs. Millennials"??

Perhaps A More Fitting "Gen X-ers Vs. Millennials"??

I just saw the pilot of this new CBS sitcom starring Joel McHale (fresh off several seasons of "Community", which was cancelled last year or the year before?), and it's a winner! CBS also currently has a season of the long-running reality show, "Survivor", which pits Gen X-ers vs. Millennials, and I'll tell ya, I think this show is actually more fitting.

McHale stars as a world traveler/adventurer columnist/reporter for one of those "Outdoor" magazines that is switching to all-digital, and he's given the task of supervising a group of "Indoor"-type Millennials who've never ventured into the actual wilderness in their lives, in spite of them running this publication. LOL A nice added touch to this is having Stephen Fry as the magazine's owner. He adds a nice touch of sophistication to this, and I think this may in fact be the best new sitcom I've seen this 2016-17 season?

I hope there is an episode where he actually takes them camping and they first freak out that they can't charge their devices and then because they can't get a signal to tweet.

Re: Perhaps A More Fitting "Gen X-ers Vs. Millennials"??

Now THAT would be perfect!

Called it!

Episode airs 5 January 2017

The Millennials' survival skills are tested when Jack takes them camping and leaves them in the woods without their smartphones.

Re: Perhaps A More Fitting "Gen X-ers Vs. Millennials"??

You got your wish tonight but he just tried to take their phones away.

Pity...there are many camping areas with lousy signal. I remember one Girl Scout camp where you had to go way deep into the woods behind the yurts to get a signal, and a YMCA camp where you had to walk all the way out from the cabins way in the back to the entrance of the camp to get a signal.

Re: Perhaps A More Fitting "Gen X-ers Vs. Millennials"??

Yeah, I wonder why they still had a signal but then they show a 4-star lodge IN SIGHT of where they were.

Re: Perhaps A More Fitting "Gen X-ers Vs. Millennials"??

To me it would have been funnier to have them with no signal. If the guys wanted luxury, they could have gone someplace with fancy cabins nearby, or hauled in a super loaded, high end house trailer and parked it out of sight. All that would have been lost would have been the jokes about Roland picking up women who might wind up Brooke's mum, which weren't that important anyway.
