It wasn't up on Hulu in time for me to watch it last night, dang it, but I see it's up now. I just have to wait till I get through work. BOOOOO.

Boo-Hu

Watching it right now on Hulu. It's only got a joke here and there that work, and it feels...charmless. Also, they REALLY got Janice's voice wrong!

If Darth doesn't like it, I know it's going to be great! ;D

Wow, they actually managed to make Miss Piggy even worse. That's just staggering.

I'll give the show a few more chances.

P.S. I want to try whatever that drink was that Chef gave Elizabeth Banks, with the pickle in it.

I would love to see John Cleese on the Muppets again. or how about celebrity guest Rocky Balboa?

I like this idea. It's certainly a lot more interesting than just the flavors of the month, or whoever happened to be around the studio that day, that they will most likely be getting for the new show.

How about an episode with NO cameos? Maybe that would be kind of interesting.

Not great, but not an abomination. I see potential here. I'll give it a few episodes.

I know this is a little OT, but I found the newest movies to be pretty lukewarm... I mean what was with the great love for those films? You go back and watch The original Muppet Movie or the Great Muppet Caper and those are just so much damn better.

I don't know, I'm self aware enough to know I can't properly judge the first movies through a mist of nostalgia but I really enjoyed the latest movies.

I'd never say the new movies are as good or better than those classics, but it was worlds ahead of this:

I can't see that image. But I'll just assume it's for Muppets From Oz, the worst thing I have ever seen the Muppets associated with. And that includes the Gonzo line of proctology tools.

I thought the first ep had a lot of promise. It wasn't perfect, but it was fun and funny.

Watch the first season of The Muppet Show sometime. It isn't great. Luckily it was given time to find its feet.
FINE
