TV Review!

Review by Eva

I was excited to learn that the Muppets were going to have a show on Disney+. The thirty-minute episodes will be posted every Friday. The first episode begins with Scooter editing the week’s episode and getting suggestions from everyone on what to do. Miss Piggy has a lifestyle segment. Miss Piggy is upset with Scooter about the opening of her segment because it says Lifesty instead of Lifestyle. So, Scooter adds the le with a hyphen (Lifesty-le). My favorite part of the show is the cooking segment featuring the Swedish Chef. The Swedish Chef competes with a celebrity chef in creating a real recipe. Of course, the Swedish Chef gets frustrated and that makes for a very funny segment. The first episode’s guest stars areactor Taye Diggs, RuPaul, and chef Carlina Will.

This show is great for kids, but if you have a child with a short attention span, you might want to split the thirty-minute show and watch it one or two segments at a time. I love the Muppets, but I have to admit that some parts of the show are better than others, depending on which guests are on each segment and how well they interact with the Muppet characters. Also, some of the sketches are longer than others and at times are not funny. I hope the show continues and gets better with time. I give this show a 4 out of 5 stars because it has room for improvement.

More Information:

Muppets Now is The Muppets Studio’s first unscripted series and first original series for Disney+. In the six-episode season, Scooter rushes to make his delivery deadlines and upload the brand-new Muppet series for streaming. They are due now, and he’ll need to navigate whatever obstacles, distractions, and complications the rest of the Muppet gang throws at him. Overflowing with spontaneous lunacy, surprising guest stars and more frogs, pigs, bears (and whatevers) than legally allowed, the Muppets cut loose in “Muppets Now” with the kind of startling silliness and chaotic fun that made them famous. From zany experiments with Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker to lifestyle tips from the fabulous Miss Piggy, each episode is packed with hilarious segments, hosted by the Muppets showcasing what the Muppets do best. Produced by The Muppets Studio and Soapbox Films, “Muppets Now” premieres Friday, July 31, streaming only on Disney+.
