The Muppets (2015-?)
Jim Henson’s loveable puppets return to the small screen in this mockumentary-style series that follows their personal and professional lives.
I’ve only seen a couple episodes of the original series and honestly don’t remember much about them, so my thoughts on the episode are based purely on the pilot and how it compares to the most recent movies.
There’s a lot more adult material and themes in the TV series. Not to the point where you wouldn’t want kids to watch, but they aren’t going to catch on to everything. Fozzy is dating a human which causes problems between him and her family. Kermit and Miss Piggy have broken up and he’s dating a new pig. I never understood why Kermit was with Miss Piggy but whatever floats his boat. He’s apparently into pigs since his new woman is one too. I’m not sure how I feel about the new girl. We’ll see.
The show wasn’t awesome and it wasn’t bad. I’m really noticing a theme with these new shows. Nothing has really blown me away or made me excited to see more. It’s kind of sad.
