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 is very much an updated version of the Muppet show. It's set in a late night talk show rather than a variety show, but the premise is very much the same as the original Muppet show. The humor is a little bit raunchier than the original, but it's hardly shocking or offensive. All the old characters and relationships are there, and essentially unchanged.

I enjoyed it, but did not love it. At this point I prefer the original, but that's probably as much due to nostalgia as to any particular virtue of the show. I'll keep watching, as there were definitely a few laughs in the premier. Like it, don't love it, but it could grow on me...
