I watched the first one of these on Sky 1 yesterday. I've always been a fan of the original Muppet Show and the movies they've done over the years.
The news series is simply entitled 'The Muppets' and was on in the US in Sept 2015 and picked up by Sky 1 in the UK as an 'exclusive' show.
The first one was on last night and what was it like?
Ok, it's nice to see the characters again but this show in my opinion is a flop. It is more adult focused affair, branded as a 'mockumentary' the silliness has gone and this is following the Muppets as they work on Miss Piggy's "Late Show". The new show for me is featuring US stars of the day (we Brits are wondering who?).
The original Muppet Show had American stars on it, but these were people we knew. This new show is like a 'biopic' style. Personally, this didn't work at all for me and I was massively disappointed. With original Muppet Show (and in the movies) you laugh but this didn't get me a single giggle in 30 mins. Even Mrs jno said "we won't be watching that again". This just wasn't funny and without a decent story the Muppets just don't work.
