The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale

Recommended Posts

I cackled so loud with the "That Happened" segment. "That's why things don't change" line plus the moody emo kid was hilarious. 

The end credits song was also so funny. The music and lyrics are so catchy.

It basically is The Soup, but for legal reasons I'm sure they couldn't use "The Soup" anywhere in the title.  I prefer this, anyway.  I am sure Joel is more involved in the production, I like the fact that they can use whatever language they want (not that I want every other word to be a swear, but sprinkled in is fine).  I just wish it were longer.  This is a Netflix show.  It can be 45 minutes, at least. There's so much on TV to make fun of.  I'm sure they could come up with content. 

Nah just give Wheaton his own show like this making fun of sci-fi/genre shows! ?

The Sri Lanka has talent show clip cracked me up. The way that guy just slowly fell backwards, man that had to hurt.

"Osher is here." I laughed pretty hard at that. I have no idea why. ?

Joel is so handsome. He has a great smile.

I think Britain's Got Talent may have one-upped Sri Lanka's Got Talent in a major way.

Also, Germany's Next Top Model is about as existentialist as you would expect a German reality show to be.

As a Vanderpump Rules watcher, I love that it’s featured basically every week—it’s so snarkable anyway. Kristen hobbling away from the conversation was definitely a highlight of the ep. As was Schwartz’s Fruit by the Foot confession.  I also love the weekly joke about the name of the show. So happy that Joel is back!

I also love the weekly joke about Vanderpump Rules because I have no idea what this show is. So everything Joel says about it could be true. I have no way of knowing!

I enjoyed Joe I'mnotlookinguphowtospellhislastname. The whole bit was pretty awkward but I laughed anyway. He's a cutie.

The good thing about this being on Netflix is that one of the things that killed The Soup was the edict from E! that they couldn't make fun of Kardashian-related media, Real Housewives, or other Comcast-owned properties.  Now, we can have weekly updates on Derpump, the Van who rules.

Yes! When they were told they couldn't make fun of the Kardashian's, it sucked. Some of the funniest jokes came at their expense, and it was hilarious.

Which is weird though because he hasn't really made fun of them at all since being back. I still remember that awesome Soup joke about how some Kardashian hanger-on came out of a coma and the first thing he asked (in the joke of course) was how was Bruce doing. 

Joel also hasn't been making fun of Seacrest at all which is super surprising. Especially since he talks about American Idol regularly. Although that clip they keep showing of Lionel Richie wiping out on the chair is hilarious.

I loved the Ryan Seacrest jokes on The Soup ?? especially when they made fun of his height.

I remember hearing Joel interviewed on Howard Stern maybe seven or eight years ago, and he was asked about how he got away with the Kardashian jokes, and he said that back then, Kris Jenner didn't mind them being made fun off, as long as people were talking about them.  After Caitlyn started to transition, something seemed to change there.

I think my favourite bit in the most recent episode was how Braxton Family Values is a show about Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant.

I have to call foul.  The guy yelling at One Piece Man was named Seamus, which is an Irish name.  The aggro farmer was speaking with a Yorkshire accent

During what I will genteelly refer to as the elephant scene, I had to cover my eyes and thank my lucky stars that the dialog was in French.  I still ended up gagging without the visuals or the audio.

If one of those other panelists on the View-like show (on what I can only assume is a Christian network) were to snap and murder the passive-aggressive host, no jury in this land would convict.

I remember seeing someone else (Bear Grylls?) squeeze water out of elephant poop years ago so I thought I would be fine watching that clip but I was still trying not to gag. Blech!

“Heavy is the meathead who wears the balloon crown.” “Shark Tank, but with lower stakes and louder people... chairmooks of the board...” I love this show so, so much. 

And though we don’t get Vanderpump Rules, we do get Iyanla! (Actually that exercise didn’t seem all that bad, once you got past the initial silliness.)

That poop scene was nasty.

 So of course I had to look this show up... it didn’t seem to have its own Facebook page, but I found the one for TCT and one of the latest posts quoted a Bible verse that said “Let all that you do be done in love.” Uh, I guess “alll” doesn’t include being a snarky son of a gun to your “friends”? “When do the *friends* show up?” indeed! Ouch! Those ladies are 100% gritting their teeth waiting for at least a small hunk o’ coal to hit Julie on the head.

Now, GET OUT OF ME GARDEN!

I wonder if it is a test to see if people watch right away. I plan on binge watching. I've missed The Soup quite a bit.

That guy wasn't Scottish, Joel. He sounded like he was from West Yorkshire, or possibly Lancashire. Still, his accent was more convincingly Scottish than the guy they had pretending to be him. Those on-set skits are definitely the worst part of this show. It's okay when he gets stars from other Netflix shows to appear, but when it's people I don't recognise in costumes, it just doesn't hit the funny bone. 

QVC seems like such a depressing channel, and a soulless place to work. I've never watched it, but any clips I've seen are of people who appear to be uniquely untalented and desperate.

But not as depressing at that thoroughly amateur looking show, Julie & Friends. Good grief, that was pathetic to watch. That woman had negative levels of charisma.

I guess how I was wondering it’ll work because I like when they make fun of recent clips of shows from the same week generally . So I guess the clips might feel a little outdated by the time they’re released.

I found an article about him from when the clip first went viral. Definitely Yorkshire.  Also amusingly, the article said that his wife didn't know why he had to get so angry, because all she ever had to do to get them to move was to ask politely.

This has been such an nice way to wrap up the weekend for the past 13 weeks, I'm not sure how I feel about being able to binge it instead of making it into a ritual.

Still, I'll take more episodes if Netflix (ba-dong!) will allow Joel to keep using salty language.

Everything will be outdated. This is a topical show, it needs to be weekly. I guess for me, it's not the kind of show I would binge.

I'm not sure about binging this show, either, since that means they're not exactly timely.  Even though they aren't pulling ALL their clips from that week's shows, there has been enough of them to make me feel like it's current.  If they film all of the episodes in advance, that means they're probably moving away from network tv and doing more internet?  Not sure.  I'll still watch, but it'll feel different.

Does it matter if they are current or not. Most of the clips they play are for stuff I wouldn't normally watch anyways. Hell for all I know Joel could have been showing me 4 year old clips from Vanderpump Rules, this past season. But as long as they are funny I wouldn't care.

Lol. Same. I think the only current show that I actually watched that they showed a clip was Survivor, so I guess you have a valid point.

I’m just glad Vanderpump Rules is basically over for the season. Maybe The Not Soup will be back to weekly eps by the time it comes back :)

I do think this show drives viewers to the show it features. So maybe Netflix’s MO is to drive people to shows? Hmm.

This was my point I made when this was announced!  I'll watch it all right away because I love Joel, but the format is all wrong for this type of show.

From now on anytime anyone talks about much smarter and classier British tv shows are, this clip will be the first thing i think of.

The Warsaw Shore guys were obviously doing the fusion dance from Dragonball Z.  Come on, show!  Do your research!  

I have noticed that with a few things, one example is when Joel was talking about Jozea from BB and the challenges. He called him Joe zay uh.  His name is pronounced Joe zay.  So that showed me that Joel definitely doesn't watch these shows.  Kind a nit pick i I know!  I mean, obviously who has the time to watch Allll of them, but get these little facts right.  Imo. 

Anyhoo, I do enjoy the show and liked seeing Gillian Jacobs. 

Joel's delivery is the best part of the jokes.

I've only watched two so far. I liked it better when they came on weekly. I love both Gillian Jacobs and Justin Hartley so I enjoyed them and I see that Joe Manganiello is up next. He was pretty funny last time.

Well that sucks but I can't say that I'm totally surprised.  When they took a break then came back with all the episodes available at one time, I figured they must not be getting that many views with the weekly format and we're trying to see if changing how it was viewed would improve ratings.  Apparently not.

I am disappointed but perhaps not that surprised. I only watched a few but they seemed to lack the magic of The Soup. I did think it might take a bit to get into the swing of things again and became too busy to try it again. I think that may be how it went with other longtime McHale fans. I definitely think he is one of the most talented comedian/actors out there, so I hope he finds another suitable vehicle soon, one that uses his talents as well as Community did.
