Like the Muppets...but not
10 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In an attempt to bring back family entertainment the BBC launched 'That Puppet Gameshow' which made a lot of people say "It's a bit like that Muppet programme". This alone presented a huge problem as this show is nowhere near as smart or as funny as The Muppet Show and the puppets nowhere near as endearing.

To be fair, the game show element of it is entertaining enough but once you'd seen celeb's punching little lights on their costume out with boxing gloves once, you didn't really want to see it again. Some of the contestants looks bewildered by the puppets and at times it all resembles too much like a kids game show with rather little for the adults to enjoy.

Apparently some of the best comedy writers in the industry were hired to write the 'back stage' scenes but these prove to be anything but funny.

It seems as though the BBC have lost faith in this show as in recent weeks it has been moved further and further away from the Saturday night slot and into late afternoon. If it ended up on the CBBC channel it may find a more supportive audience.
