Kermit. Miss Piggy. Gonzo. Fozzie.  The Muppets are back in action and streaming to your TV screens on the new Muppets Now show on Disney+.  I've been excited and intrigued by this show since I first heard of it, so I was excited when July 31 rolled around the first episode debuted.  Take a look at my trailer reaction below:

So the show looks promising by all accounts, but would it live up to the promise?

Muppets Now Review


Muppets Now is releasing one episode a week over the next 6 weeks so on debut day, there is only one 22 minute episode to take a look at and make a judgement.  That may be working against Muppets Now right now, in my opinion as the first episode didn't quite live up to my expectations.

I felt like the trailer was a bit all over the place and was hoping that show would bring it to a more cohesive feel, but the show was all over the place too.  And now that I've seen the trailer and the first episode, I get that's the design and it just isn't my style of show.  There was nothing bad about it.  In fact there were a few things I really enjoyed - like influencer Miss Piggy with her vlog and taking photos for her Instagram. . .complete with hashtags!  Overall though, the disjointed nature of the show didn't reach me the way I had hoped.  But never wanting to pass judgement on just 22 minutes, I'll tune in again next week and see if things gel differently for me.
