I Could Watch Muppets Tonight All Day
21 September 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Dare I say it? This modern reworking of the famous Muppet Show is even better than its predecessor and better than just about everything else those lovable Jim Henson creations ever did.

Every single one of the few episodes - only 22 all in all - is filled with knock-out puns, bone-crunching slapstick, marvelously loopy sketches, hilarious story lines, good-natured guest star appearances and an overall air of liberating anarchy.

The many new characters are perfectly integrated into the Muppet cosmos. They're all breathing living creatures.

This terrific TV show was clearly made with love and care. Pure fun from start to finish.

8 out of 10 chaotic nights at the television studio
