Lacks the Heart and Soul that Made the Muppets so Beloved,
22 August 2016 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Muppets is a decent television series with a reasonably well developed plot line, albeit a stellar live action and voice cast. It was certainly to see these characters in a completely different format. The mockumentary style, similar to the Office and Modern Family, was fun to witness as they all struggle to keep Miss Piggy's new talk show on its feet.

However, the series never delivered on its potential, the ten minute pilot episode is very entertaining, but they sadly could not deliver the same kind of energy and enthusiasm to a twenty minute episode, it simply falls flat.

As well as that, it is lacking in heart, which was always one of the strongest features of the Muppets franchise, they do not sing any musical numbers and the distinct relationship between each character is lost here. It certainly has many great moments in its 16 episode run, but the Muppets is simply too adult for kids and too childish for adults, fans of the franchise will still check it out, but I would not recommend you go out of your way to see it.

The Muppet join forces once again to run a talk show hosted by Miss Piggy, which proves to be a difficult task, particularly for Kermit.

Best Performance: Steve Whitmire / Worst Performance: Kristen Chenoweth
