The Muppets "Walk The Swine" Review - AVClub

AVClub: Pig Out” was a near-perfect half hour of The Muppets that almost got sunk by yet another nasty ending. It’s not that I mind seeing Jim Henson’s creations be jerks to one another, but when that becomes the go-to for the conclusion of every single episode, it makes the show—if we’re being blunt—kind of boring. And that has nothing to do with your tolerance level of Kermit’s dickishness; it’s more about adhering to what makes an interesting story. After a while, the “gotcha!” brand of cruelty grows predictable, and if The Muppets wants to be truly adult, it needs to be surprising.

The story is too old to be commented.

I initially thought this looked stupid but it seems to have been getting pretty good reviews. Maybe I should try it out?

Sorry, Muppets. I'm just too darn old for this.

This new one is actually more mature and modern than the old Muppets. I just started it out and love it.
