Scrolling through my social network feeds tonight shortly after watching The Muppet Show Season Premiere, all posts had one thing in common, very unhappy parents. Moms and dads alike all over America popped their popcorn and snuggled in with their kiddies in preparation for a new generation of TMS lovers. Most were surprised to find out this was not the show they remembered and were utterly disappointed that this was obviously not a show for children. Me however, I LOVED IT and let me tell you why. Unlike most grown women my age, I am not interested in reading about those different Shades of Grey or watching about Mikes Magic, I am about all things Disney, vintage toys, action figures and things your average 10 year old would like. So the fact that I love such childish things but also a forty year old women makes this show everything I would want it to be!
I thought of tonights show as the Muppets meet The Office. I loved the filmography of it and the dry adult humor was darn right brilliant. The show still had its common core core idea of The Muppets preparing for the nights episode ending with a popular band (this week being Imagine Dragons) performing. The only thing I can honestly say I am currently disappointed about is the fact that Miss Piggy and Kermit are not dating! What are your thoughts, were you disappointed or were you thrilled like me?
