Review of The Muppets

30 minutes

“The Muppets” return to primetime with a contemporary, documentary-style show. For the first time ever, a series will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, breakups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires. This is a more adult Muppet show, for “kids” of all ages.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This review is based on the pilot episode which aired 9/22/15.

Very funny. Feels sort of like 30 Rock, except with muppets. If you're at all familiar with the muppets -- you know that Kermit is a
pretty normal guy, and everyone else is Peter Griffin or Homer Simpson level stupid. Kermit is trying to run a show that involves
crazy muppets, and he's losing his mind doing so. It has some elements of The Office (one on one interviews), and other successful comedies and
very much feels like an amalgamation of all the modern greats. If you were a fan of the Muppet movies, you will also appreciate this show.
The writing is good, there were some great one liners.
