    What’s horrifying about it? I laughed a few times, which is a few times more than I laugh at most current sitcoms.Report

      I did like the joke about Gonzo and Miss Peggy performing A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters for a month in Detroit. That image made me laugh. Some others were funny but the whole Office/Reality Show angle and the Fuzzy Bear relationship thing….Report

    I don’t see how that trailer is in any way edgy.

    It’s certainly more contemporary than the old show, but it’s not exactly post-watershed content.Report

    1) Why do you hate the breaking of the 4th wall, Saul?

    2) The original muppet show was built on parodies of the pop culture tropes of the day. Now, it would be the office. Back then, it was PIGS. IN. SPAAAAAACE.

    3) The original Muppet movie is pretty dark, with the frogs legs restaurant and Kermit winding up in a electric chair at one point. (and like jaybird already said, whatever is going on between Gonzo and Camilla. NTTAWWT)

    4) I will be disappointed if they don’t also bring back musical acts

    Look it’s just good they’re still working on the property, it deserves a chance and as, Kolohe very aptly observed, the original Muppet show was this way too.Report

    I watched the trailer. The jokes were good, I got several grins, snorts and a chuckle. That’s good stuff. The voices were painful, not because they aren’t good but because they aren’t the ones from our childhoods. That cannot be helped, tempus fugit, all men are mortal.
    It looks very promising, I will be watching.Report
