Got the season pass before I’d watched even one episode. My mistake. This Muppet crew no longer revels in the wink-wink in-the-know type of jokes of yesteryear. Now all we have are a Kermit and Miss Piggy who are as Progressive and crass as their Hollywood peers. What made the Muppets so special was their childlike attitude when facing a very adult world. Now they’ve grown up to be the adults that baffled them all along.
There are moments of the old gang with Kermit still trying to hold anchor in the eye of the storm. This is what adults remember about the Muppets and what still makes them fun to watch. The political crap the writers are foisting on viewers now is wholly unnecessary to make this an “adult” show and fun for “kids of all ages.” Pixar accomplishes that with every movie, even the ones rated G.
Jim Henson would not approve.
Save your money..watch Sunset Boulevard instead
I so love the Muppets and the old Muppet Show. Unfortunately with this program, Gone is the clever writing, witticisms, plot, music. Sadly departed are gentle reminders of better times past and frivolity...replaced by coarseness and pitiful PC. A sad representation of the worst of 21st century tv...the Office meets 30 Rock...hackneyed would be an undue compliment. Tragic. As painful as watching the return of the greats Mary Tyler Moore, Carol Burnett and Lucille Ball to their last sitcom...not knowing when to retire...a veritable Blanche DuBois. This franchise would have been better served giving "Jim Henson's Creature Shop" another season rather than ruining its reputation with this pitiful reminder of all that is wrong with television. May it be laid to rest with a quick cancellation.
The Gang Is Back
First and foremost, HOOOOOOORAAAAAY!
Disney’s revival of the Muppets is if you know anything of Jim Henson, something he more than likely would have approved. (He wanted to be known for more than Sesame Street and cuddly stories.) The humor is edgy and a bit more adult while still having the slap-stick nature that pulled us in as children. There’s lots of homage to the original series and a lot of the original character’s places in the films. It starts a bit slow but the series is picking up pace. (After Episode 3). I for one am glad Disney is not letting this property fade into the night but bringing them to the forefront and enchanting a new generation.
