For those who may be unaware, The Soup was basically the best thing that E! Television ever made - EVER - and the idea of Joel McHale going back to that kind of buzz is frankly exciting.

The new show, titled The Joel McHale Show Starring Joel McHale, will see the veteran comedian take "a sharp, absurdist look at pop culture and news from across the globe," and will probably feature lots of green-screen if this opening video is anything to go by.

Take a look.

And just because we need you to know how good The Soup was, here's just a taster of what it was like at full flight. The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale lands on Netflix on February 18th.
