TV Review: The Muppets, Episode 1.09, “Going, Going, Gonzo”


“Ever since The Muppets premiered on ABC, people have been hemming and hawing over whether or not it captures the Muppet spirit. Depending on who you ask, it’s either too adult, too much like The Office, or simply not funny enough—which, hey, different strokes for different folks. Whatever complaints you might have, concerns about The Muppets’ Muppetness or lack thereof has dogged the show from day one. Some of those concerns are valid. Some are ridiculous. (Muppet humor has always trended toward adults, dating all the way back to The Muppet Show.)” (Via Paste Magazine.)
