Muppets Now, on Disney+

The show consists of several different segments, including "Lifestyle with Miss Piggy", "Okey Dokey Kookin" hosted by a turkey named Beverly Plume and featuring cooking competitions between the Swedish Chef and various guest chefs, "Mup Close and Personal" in which guests are interviewed, "Muppet Labs Field Test" with Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker, "Pepe's Unbelievable Game Show" (which is probably my favorite segment), and maybe some other stuff, I forget. It's all framed by Scooter uploading the segments to the Muppets' website, while dealing with annoying distractions. Oh, and "Lifestyle" is itself divided into sub-segments, one of which is a video chat between Miss Piggy and three guests. One of them is always Linda Cardellini, but the other two vary between episodes. Piggy is also assisted by Uncle Deadly. And I don't know what else to say, except being the Muppets, it's all quite zany and frantic.

Well, I found the show reasonably amusing, but not as good as previous Muppet series and movies. The first season has just six episodes, and I don't know if there will be a second season. Nor do I particularly care, but if they do make more of it, I suppose I'll watch it.
