Joel McHale, the snarky star of Community (2009), ridicules the silliest moments reality television, internet videos and TV from around the world have to offer. Each episode also features celebrity guests and a couple of sketches.
Joel McHale, host of "The Soup" hosts a terrific look back at some of the greatest moments in "Talk Soup" history. The clips include lots of great stuff from the Greg Kinnear (Yes, the legendary Phil Hartman sketch is included!) and John Henson years (You get to see John's chicken fetish and Dustin Hoffman's appearance one more time!), along with some choice bits ("Foxy Chocolate") from the Aisha Tyler year and thankfully very little from the sad Hal Sparks season, also known as "the season that killed Talk Soup". I'm flattered to report there is also a fine salute to my own contributions to the show as Senor Sock, including the death scene we faked as part of an elaborate tax dodge. Joel makes an excellent host for this potpourri and proves a talented successor to the Kinnear-Henson golden years. This is a MUST for any fans of the original "Talk Soup".
