THE SOUP IS BACK
18 February 2018 | by jackjteedSee all my reviews

While some review(s) balk at the concept of the show, saying that Joel McHale can't run something like this or that this is some sort of low point, I need only reference the fact that this is, in all relevant ways, The Soup which ran for over a decade.

And this show is The Soup, except on Netflix (dum-dummm), and aside from some jokes geared at the network and other slight changes, this is essentially the same show that you remember.

From the fantastically ridiculous and out-of-context clips to the impromptu cameos and cheesy segment openers, it is the perfect successor to the series, and the same parts that used to make me laugh are doing so once again.

That all being said, this show is not for everyone (the same could be said for the original), but if you liked McHale's last half-hour standing in front of a green screen once a week, you should not be disappointed.
