Yeah, I liked the trailer. Although I agree with Gonzo the format seems gimmicky. But as long as it's funny, I'm there.

Wish they had updated his shirt though :P
If it's the Muppets in their daily lives,  I would think they'd have different clothes sometimes.

I hope 80s Robot will be in it. I know it's kind of a one note joke, but I laugh every time at him in the 2011 film.

Yeah I hope so, but it looks like it's going to be the main costume anyway.

And that'd be cool. They've been really good with seeding their recent stuff with lots of characters the way they used to do, so I think he'll pop up.
FINE

Have they been doing more Youtube videos? I haven't checked in a while. And I remember their videos not being organized chronologically very well.

Yep, bunch of new ones recently. Tough Pigs is a good site to keep up with what's going on with the Muppets.

Just watched it. I thought it was pretty fun. It is basically "The Office" with the Muppets. My wife and I enjoyed it.

Feels too early The Office and not enough The Muppets to me so far, needs more wacky.  "Is this the guy in the hat?" made me laugh, pretty disappointed overall though.

Loved it, while I liked the two recent movies this already surpassed them for me. Hopefully from here they can highlight the huge cast they have available. Favorite part was Fozzie's plotline, the bear joke in the car instantly made this a favorite show.

It was awesome!

And Kermit admitting he has a thing for pigs. Good for you, Kermit.

And Fozzie's gf's dad being species-ist. I thought this was the 21st century!

I didn't like it at all.  I got through maybe 5 minutes before I shut it off.  Maybe it was because I don't like The Office.  Or just didn't find it funny at all.

I haven't seen it yet, but I'm concerned about some of the reviews that call it cynical and mean spirited.

I enjoyed it quite a bit.  The parents being species-ist was my favorite bit.  They played it really well.
