Got to admit there were some funny parts, but I can't say I would watch it. Stuff like that is funny in small chunks. Watching that made me miss being 10 again more than anything else.
See, I had the opposite impression. The first trailer I saw was basically this in smaller chunks. I thought that was funny, but I was worried it wouldn't work in an extended format. I was very happy to see this (which may well be how the 1st ep will start) and find that it made me laugh a number of times.
Yep, same here. It was only until after I read an article/interview that assuaged my fears about it. It feels like it's part original Muppets, part Muppets Tonight in terms of the vibe I'm getting for the execution, though I hope there's less of the latter. Conceptually, I don't think the talk-show format is all that dissimilar to their original vaudeville style format, just more of a modernization on how it's accomplished.
Oh and I loved the first movie, the second not so much.
