The Muppets Review 1×01 “Pig Girls Don’t Cry”

Home, Television

It’s not like I’m particularly surprised at the direction that ABC’s The Muppets is taking. After all, Bill Prady and Bob Kushell’s new puppet venture has been touted as “darker and edgier” since its announcement earlier this year. And that’s fine. I expected – even if I’m not particularly impressed with – innuendo-filled jokes. I just didn’t expect that ABC’s The Office-style show would suck all the fun out of the Muppets.
