The Muppets are Returning to TV
Happy to hear that the Muppets are going to be on TV again! This was a really fun trailer to watch, though as someone who grew up watching the Variety-show version (and also Muppets Tonight), I am cautiously excited.
This Vulture interview with Bill Prady makes me feel a little better. Still though – holding my breath.
The part where Piggy walks into a pane of glass? Cheap gag, but got a genuine LOL out of me. I’m a sucker for that kind of comedy.
The one weird thing I saw was the appearance of a narrator, albeit briefly, halfway through the trailer. The whole “… like you’ve never seen them before!” bit was just really odd. Everything else looks really fun, and a neat spin on the original cast.
With lines like “The band. They’re always happy. Legally, now,” this is most definitely a show geared for adults.
Who am I kidding? It’s the Muppets! Of course I’ll tune in.
